Hp Printer Prints Impressions In Paper

What is causing impressions in the paper from my hp 2600n printer? There are weird impressions all down the right side of every page it prints. The impressions are the same on every sheet. How can i fix this?

Answer:- if they're actual impressions into the paper, and not simply toner marks, then most likely it's being caused by the fuser assembly. But, if there are no actual indentations in the paper and it's only toner marks, then it could be one of the toner cartridges causing the problem or it could also be the fuser assembly. If it's one specific color, besides black, then it's a toner cartridge, but if black it could be the black toner cartridge or fuser. To fix it, you would need to replace the problem component.

Dell 720 Printer Prints Blank

I have a dell 720 printer and am using a gigaware cable to connect to my toshiba laptop. Everything seems connected correctly, as the power is on and the printer will try to print. However, the page that is ejected is blank with a few small lines. I have tried to clean off the ink cartridges, and when i print, it says they are full. To my knowledge, this printer has never been used and has been sitting for a while. I have also tried to force the ink with the "prints lines" under maintenance. However, it just printed a little more of the lines - it didn't actually print anything. Anyone have any ideas? The print shows that the cartridges are full, but it won't print. I don't know where the problem is, so i don't know if new cartridges would help.

Hp Laserjet - Prints Directly To Printer Instead Of Spooling

How do i configure the hp laserjet pro p1100 to print directly to the printer instead of spooling? I shared the printer on the network using a windows xp desktop computer. I go to printer properties, and in the advanced tab, i click "print directly to printer" but when i click apply, it says operation could not be completed. And when i try printing using the macbook, it says printing 100%, when i check the status on the pc, it says spooling. So i tried pausing the print job on the mac and when i did, it suddenly printed the print job. How do i fix this glitch.

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.

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?

Dell Printer Prints "blurry" Text

I just printed out an essay, and some of the lines came out "blurry". It's probably because of the fact i'm using refurbished ink cartridges. Is there a way to fix this though? When i did an alignment/print test, i noticed that the rectangles for the black ink aren't filled all the way across(left to right) the paper to the right.
