If you see the following message while trying to print from LabQuest:

Printing Failed.
Please check the printer and try again.
Printer Status: ERROR

One of these may be the cause.

1. The printer you are trying to use is not compatible with LabQuest. Check the compatible/incompatible list TIL 1659: Which printers are supported in LabQuest?

2. The printer is currently in an error state that may be caused by one of the following: out of paper, out of ink/toner, a door on the printer is ajar, or a paper jam. Check the printer, fix the problem, and try printing again.

3. You have installed multiple printers and did not select the name of the printer that is physically connected to the LabQuest from the Print Options dialog.
