Printer Printing Pages Light And Dark

Printer ink light not on, pages printing light and dark. Well i have a samsung printer, never have changed ink in a printer before as it is my first printer and new. I am printing off a flyer, the typing is light down the middle of the page which interferes with some of he font. Any setting etc i can use to fix this?

Answer:- this sounds like a laser printer, correct? Try shaking the toner cartridge. The toner may not be evenly distributed. Or your toner cartridge is low - you need to replace it.

Lexmark Printer Printing Only Blank Pages

I had to change the printer cartridge - black - a few days ago for the first time. The printer prints out an alignment page which only has the black lines on it, not the colored ones. Says there is a problem with the alignment. I have tried canceling the alignment request, but when i try to print the paper goes through but comes out blank. The printer works as a scanner, but not as a copier, which suggests it's a cartridge problem, but i don't know how to fix it. Anyone got any ideas please?

How To Get Hp Printer To Stop Printing Test Pages?

How do i get my hp printer to stop printing test pages? I have a mac and installed snow leopard. About a month later i changed the ink in my hp c3180 all-in-one printer. Now every time i turn it on, it prints a test page (big waste of ink). When i put the test page in the scanner to "align" it (thats what apparently stops the needless printing of test pages), it wont scan. I click scan and the light just blinks. I hooked it up to my mac and opened the app that came with hp, called scan pro, and that says 'no scanner detected'. The only conclusion i can come up with is that switching to snow leopard ruined my ability to scan and theres no hp driver in snow leopard? I scanned stuff just fine before i had snow leopard. But my main question is how do i get the printer to stop printing annoying test pages that take 2mn to print and is a waste of ink?

Hp Printer Keeps Printing

Hp printer problem - keeps printing when i don't want it to. I have an hp vivera printer and whenever i turn it on it automatically prints out an ink sample sheet. (Where whenever you put in a new ink cartridge it prints out a "tester" paper). The thing is, i haven't even put in a new ink cartridge, it's just doing it on it's own whenever it's turned on. How can i stop this from happening?

P. S i've tried the steps on the "ink tester sheet" and it doesn't work, it still keeps on doing it.

Hp Printer Not Printing

I have a hp desktop d2660, that continues to have problems. There seems to be a problem with the communication between the printer and the computer. The computer detects the printer, and everything is connected properly, but nothing would print. I have noticed a pattern though. If i were to uninstall the drivers and re-install again, it prints just fine. Then i would restart the computer, and try printing again, i would hear it start up then stop and the power button light would start blinking, and an "error-printing" status would pop up in my notification bar. The printer is connected to the computer through a usb, and it is connected correctly, including the power cord. I have installed the drivers also.

Printer That Does Clothes Printing

Is there like a well known printer/brand e.g. Hp, epson, samsung etc that does clothes printing?


Most printing on clothing is done using via silk screen which is a form of manual printing. None on of your at home inkjet printers can print on fabric - none. You need a digital textile printer to print on clothes.

Lexmark Printer Not Printing

So when ever i want to print something my laptop says stuff like the printer cannot communicate with the computer. Try these solution

- Ensure the printer is powered on
- Disconnect and reconnect the printer's power cable
- Disconnect and reconnect the usb or network cable
- Check your firewall settings to ensure printer communications is not blocked
- Restart your computer

And then it says windows cannot print due to a problem with the current printer setup. But apparently my dad can print stuff from his laptop without any troubles and i cant. So what should i do? I have a lexmark printer and a laptop, i went on devices and printers and it says my printers offline. But when i click it to un check mark it; it just doesn't change.

Printer Printing So Small

Why is my printer printing so small?

Answer:- i'm guessing you're printing stuff from e-mail or the internet. This is a common problem that is associated with the monitor screen resolution and has nothing to do with the printer, it's setup or software. If you're using a specific software program, then you need to adjust your font size accordingly to print larger. Otherwise read the following. The following is for use with internet explorer 7, but may be the same or similar for other versions or web browsers. One way is to go to your menu bar at the top of your web browser, click on "file" then "print preview". At the top of the window there should be a small window with "shrink to fit" in it. Click the arrow on that box for a drop down list and choose something, like 90% (there is a custom option at the bottom of the list if you need to set something unique in between what's listed to set it to something that works best) and see how it changes the print size of what is to be printed out and choose the one that looks and works best for you without cutting off text somewhere. This will make it larger when printed out. Another way that usually works to make the print larger when printing internet stuff & emails is by changing the print view size on the screen to a larger size in your web browser (this is separate from your other setting you've already setup). Go to the menu bar at the top (i.e. Internet explorer), click on "view, " then "text size" then select a size like "larger" or "largest" (something higher than what you're currently set to. )

Sometimes adjusting the current window's magnification (lower right corner of screen or ctrl button + scroll wheel on mouse) can have an affect on print size. The only other method is to copy & paste the text into a text editing software like word and adjust the text size there. If you're using a text program, then you simply adjust the size of the text to a 12 or 14 point, or larger, font size (adjust depending on the font and size you need) and that should do the trick.

Hp Printer Always Printing Test Print

When i start my desktop pc my printer (hp) is always printing test print, how to stop test print?

Answer:- you didn't mention the exact model of the printer you have, so it will be difficult to say for sure what needs to be done. If your printer is an all-in-one or multi-function printer that has a scanner, you probably need to take that test print and scan it immediately after it prints out. This is a common way for printers to perform and finalize a printhead alignment needed for the best print quality. This is common and needs to be done when the printer is new or printhead cartridges are replaced. Otherwise there is probably an option in the printer's control panel menu that allows you to turn off initializing test prints. Check your user's manual for any more info or supply the exact model number of your printer.
