printer problem

Printer will not print Quicken........Printer functions for all other software and/or websites.
  • Which version of Quicken and OS?
  • I have same problem. 2010 Quicken Deluxe and HP Officejet  Pro  8000 Wireless Printer. Can print in other functions including Quick Books Pro, but can not print checks in Quicken Deluxe.
  • Splasher, have 2008 Quicken Deluxe, Windows XP, and HP Photosmart C4600 series printer.  Shebbee
  • And you've done the printer setup in Quicken and chosen the correct printer?
    If all else fails, you could use the Quicken PDF printer selection to print to a file and then open the PDF file and print it.
A while ago, there have been reports about some HP printer models not working with Quicken.
Check the HP support website and see, if you have the latest available printer driver for your HP printer model. Download and install that and see if it works.
  • Well the funny thing (not really so funny) is my printer works on Quickbooks Pro, but won't work on Quicken Deluxe. Can print checks on one, but not the other. That is what has me stumped. I can print reports on Deluxe, but cannot print checks. So I know (think) the printer functions for everything except printing checks on Deluxe. Thanks
To classicriv:
Quicken has separate setups for printers, one for printing reports, one for printing checks and one for invoices (H&B, RPM versions only) ... who knows, someone might have / need dedicated printer(s) for these three uses ...
Did you setup your printer for checks? Click File / Printer setup, then click "for printing checks" and perform the setup.

    People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
