Any technical help please! I was about to print the PowerPoint presentation slides as documentation for my paper works to be submitted to my professor when this error message appeared “PPT2000: The Printer Isn’t Responding.” To be honest, I do not have adequate understanding on computer applications. I am only dependent on what and how the User Guide or User Manual is telling and directing to me.
What I did was, I referred to the manual and it instructed me to delete the default printer that my computer has been detecting and all the extra files that relates to printer. After that, I reinstalled the driver of the printer and restarted my PC but the same message error occurred.
The problem you are having means that Microsoft PowerPoint is having difficulty communicating with your printer. There are various causes for this:
1. The printer may be offline, turned off or may be disconnected from your PC, so make sure your printer is installed and working properly on your system, connected properly and is turned on.
2. The printer may be out of paper or the paper inside is jammed. Look at your printer and make sure the paper is placed properly and there is no jammed paper in it.
3. The regional setting for your printer could be corrupted. To fix this issue you need to reset your regional setting. Go to Start then Control Panel. Double click Regional Settings, in the Regional Settings tab choose the a different setting from the original (make sure to remember what your previous setting is before changing) then Restart your computer, do the same again and this time go back to your original setting and Restart your computer again.
4. The printer driver may be corrupted. Try reinstalling your driver using the CD that comes with your Printer.
What version of PPT are you using? We're betting that you're on 2002 or 2003 and have set the "transparent" plot fill on the graph using the transparency slider. This feature isn't supported in PPT 2000, which would cause the transparency you'd see in 2002/2003 to be nontransparent in 2000.

If you want to print some Office PowerPoint slides, you have to make sure that the printer is turned on. Once the printer is running, configure the print and try printing again. Make sure the correct printer is selected in Microsoft Office PowerPoint. If you can’t make out a print, try doing a test print with Office Word.
Start Microsoft Office Word and open any document or text file. Once the file is loaded in Office Word, print one page of the document and see if it works. If the print was successful, try printing again with Office PowerPoint. If you still can’t print with Office PowerPoint, you have to reinstall Microsoft Office PowerPoint. Click “Start,” “Control Panel,” and then “Add or Remove Programs.”
Select Microsoft Office from the list and click “Change.” On the next screen, make sure “Add or Remove Features” is selected then click “Continue.” In the Microsoft Office Installation Options, select Microsoft Office PowerPoint then set the option next to it to “Not Available” then click “Continue.”
When setup is complete, close the Control Panel then open your web browser and download the free version of CCleaner and install it. Once installed, start CCleaner and clean your system. Restart your computer and install Office PowerPoint back.
Repeat the same steps then in the Microsoft Office Installation Options screen, set Microsoft Office PowerPoint to “Run from My Computer” or “Run all from My Computer” and click “Continue.” Once it is installed, start Office PowerPoint and configure the printer just like how the printer was setup in Office Word. See if this works.
If you want to convert CCleaner to Pro, download the codes and follow the instructions.
