Unable to print from QuickBooks

Unable to print from QuickBooks

Ever came to a situation where you need to print some checks from QuickBooks but your printer wont print.

this a very frustrating situation when things don’t work the way its supposed to.

In this article i will explain the the troubleshooting printer issues. As always, first thing to do is to identify the issue & then work on fixing it.

Isolate the issue, Try printing something form a notepad or Microsoft word. If that works then it means the printer is working fine & we need to work on QuickBooks printer setting. & if you are not able to print from notepad or Microsoft word then we need to troubleshoot the actual printer.

Lets say that the situation now is that the printer works fine with other application but its just the QuickBooks that you are not able to print from.

1 : Update QuickBooks to the latest Release.

2: Run the printer repair tool.

3: Delete QBPRINT.QBP.  The printer settings are stored in a file called QBPRINT.QBP. This issue most often occurs if the file has become damaged or corrupted.

If the printing problem is due to application error then these three simple steps will resolve the issue.

Hope this helps Someone.
