Why does my printer automatically go to send a fax when I just want to print?

Hi pa_tom,

 

In your printers folder on your computer, is the default printer set to your printer, or your printer- fax?

I'm not sure what it's set to. Where do I find my printers folder? Sorry, I'm not very good with this stuff. I changed my black cartridge this morning, now it just goes to fax when I try to print something.

Re: Why does my printer automatically go to send a fax when I just want to print?

I have designated the printer as my default.  It will print regular printing but when I attempt to print my checks (business) it jumps to wanting to fax.  Not sure what would be triggering it to go to faxing.  My edit report prints fine but my checks will not print.   HELP!
