Printing Problems

The most common reason why users can't print is because they are not logged on to the network.

  • You must be logged on to the network with your Username in order to print. The generic Techid does not have printing capabilities. If you have not set up your Username yet, click here for instructions to set up your Username.

  • Usually restarting your computer and re logging into the network will  fix your printing problem.

  • However if no one is able to print to a certain printer.  it may be necessary to turn the printer off and back on before restarting your computer.
