Printing

  • Help needed,

    When I try to print on opera I get the preview pane, but none of the text is displaying in the pane.
    I can see the options and radio buttons, but there is no text.
    This means I can print on my default printer by hitting enter, but I cannot change printer as all the options have no text.

    Checked on chrome and it is working fine.

  • If this just started today (or recently) try rebooting your computer to see if this helps.

  • Tried a reboot. Then a fresh install (kept data) and it hasn't fixed it.

  • It has only started in the last few days. (I can't be sure of the exact day as the USB printer is used Mon to Thurs)

  • Since you've done a fresh install of Opera it would suggest you're problem may be related to Windows so you might consider trying the Windows System File Checker tool.

    System File Checker is a useful tool included with Windows that provides a system scan which can restore corrupted Windows system files (which can sometimes address website issues). If System File Checker finds a problem with any critical system files it will attempt to repair (replace) the problematic files automatically. Admittedly this in many cases will not resolve the problem but in as much as it appears that your issue is persistent and relatively unique to your circumstance it's worth a try and of course most certainly cannot hurt.

    The steps listed below is a method to run the System File Checker on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10 so it would apply to your Window 7 (please follow the steps exactly as you see them):

    1. Click the Start button.
    2. Type "command" in the search box... DO NOT hit ENTER!
    3. Find the "Command Prompt" at or near the top of the list and RIGHT-CLICK on it and select "Run as Administrator".
    4. You will get a User Control permission prompt dialog box. Click the YES button.
    5. A black "Command Prompt" box will open with a blinking cursor. Type "sfc /scannow" (note the space before "/") and then hit ENTER.
    6. The System File Checker will begin scanning for system file problems (be patient, the system scan may take a while).
      Continue to follow the on-screen commands.
  • I remember have seen some reports about that problem. I've faced it myself but it seems to be working now.

  • Thanks for the advice. I just gave it a go, but it has not fixed the problem. (Tried a reboot too).

  • This is doing my head in. Tried resetting opera, uninstalling and trying again. It failed.
    Is this the end of Opera for me?
