    im using atmel board , wherein printing job has been achieved through dis embeded system.
    the problem is after first print im not able print for second time consecutively
    the embeded system shows dat print command is sent , but printer s not printing. s dat mean printer is not able to understand second time print command ? or print command is not sent through embeded for second time?

    when same printer s connected to computer, it works properly, no issues in it.
    the printer which i use is hp deskjet 1000 series j110 .

    awaiting for reply:)

    thanx in advance:)

    Well, you should post more info. Like what printing protocol you use, AFAIK there are many to choose from.
    One thing that pops into my head is that the problem could be in your failure to announce the end of the document, so that the printer can start another job.
