Fixing Error 20
It is very common for those people
who use printers on daily basis. One of most common
issue is error 20. However, the issue
arises from most of the HP printers, but if we don’t
configure the printer properly with the system then
we may face this any time. Error 20
may also come up while taking a print out of a document,
spreadsheet or an image.
There could be various reasons for error 20.
For example, if the printer is not set as default printer.
If printer drivers or softwares are missing. If there
is any file conflict is device manager etc.Moreover,
in order to eliminate the error 20,
we need to make sure that the printer is functional
and we should take out a self-test page before starting
the actual troubleshooting.
The first way of error 20 elimination
is to set the printer as default printer. Then we need
to click on “Start” menu and look for “Printer and Faxes”
option. After this, we need to open up the “Printers”
folder and look for the specific printer icon. So, we
need to see if the icon has a check mark next to it
or not. If yes, it means that it is set as the default
printer. If there is no “check” mark, then we need to
right click on that and make it as default printer.
Once we are done, we can again take a self-test page
to confirm it. Same way, we can take some other print
outs. Now we can say that the error 20
has been fixed. It is best if we may update the printer
driver online. While updating the driver, it is good
if the printer is powered on. Updating the software
would keep the printer safe from these errors.
