    Hello, I have replaced my old computer with a not quite so old machine. I
    was running Windows 95 with a Cannon Bubble Jet 5000 and now am running
    Windows 98 SE with the same printer. It was printing fine with the old
    system and the new machine finds and recognizes the printer. I have
    installed the latest driver for it, but the 'Online' light will not quit
    blinking and it will not take print jobs.

    I have ensured that the cables are connected securely. I made sure that the
    paper was stocked and in place correctly. The print cartridges move back
    and forth when the power is turned off and on.

    I don't know what else to try. Does anyone have any thoughts that may be of

    Thank you in advance for any help you may be in this matter.

  2. Uninstall the drivers and then download and install the drivers again.
    If no luck, get another printer.

    Is the "queue" for print jobs cleared? Have a Lexmark that used to print
    fine but recently it reports that it has not finished printing (you can have
    the final sheet in your hand).It will accept print jobs but they are
    "queued" waiting on the printer finishing the last print job.The only remedy
    I have for this is re-booting the computer.Just a workround will try
    re-inserting the printer drivers when I get a new colour cartridge ,may be
    connected to one of the cartridges being virtually empty (behaviour only
    started at same time as colour cartridge ran out).
