HP Deskjet 3050 won't print spreadsheet

Q: HP Deskjet 3050 won't print spreadsheet

I have two HP Deskjet 3050 printers; one on main machine with Win7 Ult, and the other on backup machine with Win8 Pro OEM. I am running MS Office 2010 on both machines.

I have files with XL Spreadsheets created from MS Office 2003, 2007 and 2010.

All versions of all XL spreadsheet files can be printed on both W7 and also on Vista, (prior to replacing it with W8).

W8 has the following problem:

1. All older version spreadsheets, (Excel 2003 & 2007), on W8 can be printed OK.

2. All new Excel 2010 spreadsheets created on W8 can be printed OK.

3. All existing Excel 2010 spreadsheets created on either Win7 or Vista by MS Office 2010, will not print on Win8.

When print preview is opened in the spreadsheet, it shows the section of the spreadsheet to be printed. If "Print" is clicked, a small window momentarily appears on the screen showing the print instruction has been sent to the printer.

In the "What's being printed" window, (found in Control Panel > Devices and Printers > What's being printed), the job is listed as queued to be printed, but nothing happens.

After 3 or 4 seconds, the queued job disappears from the "What's being printed" window.

I've discussed this with Hewlett Packhard, and spent an hour or more with them trying to trouble shoot it to no avail. HP believe it is an incompatibility issue with W8, and asked me to take it up with Microsoft , and also with this forum.

Has anyone experienced a similar problem and found a work around?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: HP Deskjet 3050 won't print spreadsheet

Update: The problem appears to be a security/compatibility issue.

1. Create a new Excel spreadsheet in Windows 7 using MS Office 2010

2. Open it in either Windows 7 or 8. Then click: File > Check for Issues > Click: Inspect Docment.

Nore: Compatibility is green ticked to show no issues.
3. As a result of the inpsection, the following identical problems are shown in both Windows 7 & 8.



4. With this information left intact the document can be printed in Windows 7 but not in Windows 8.

5. In Windows 8, when attempting to print it, no error message comes up. However, it shows the document queued to be printed, in: Control Panel > Deskjet Printer > See what's printing. However, after 4 or 5 seconds, the item disappears from the queue.

6. If the data is removed completely, the document prints OK in Windows 8.

As I have large numbers of such Excel files I will have to manually change every one of them to print successfully on Windows 8; and this is impractical.

I tried to talk to Microsoft Australia by phone but they said if the job was sent to the printer and was queued, there was nothing wrong in W8, and would not discuss it any further.

Does anyone know how I can get in touch with Microsoft to report the problem in full detail to them?

A:HP Deskjet 3050 won't scan???

Here is the support site for the HP Deskjet 3050 All-In-One.

You didn't mention if you're using Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit, but do you have the most current version 22.5.0(12-14-2010) of the full-feature driver software package installed?

I'm not there to see why you're suddenly having this problem, but it may come down to you uninstalling everything associated with that printer, then restarting the computer, then reinstalling it.

We have an HP DeskJet 3050 wireless printer connected by WiFi to two laptops. One laptop, a Dell 700m, runs XP Pro with all updates applied. The other laptop, a Dell XPS 15, runs Windows 7 64-bit, again with all updates applied.

The printer works completely reliably from the XP machine. From the XPS 15, the printer works reliably for a day or so, then the icon in Devices & Printers is grayed, indicating the printer is offline. Even in this condition, I can access the printer's built-in web server using Firefox on the XPS 15 and the connection appears to be fine. The printer's IP address has not changed. But the printer is still reported as offline for printing by Windows.

The workaround is to delete the device and reinstall it using Add Printer and Have Disk, but using the already installed drivers rather than re-installing. After doing that, the printer then works for a few days before again going offline.
Rebooting the XPS 15 does not help; cycling power on the printer does not help.
This problem is extremely irritating. I've done Google searches on this problem. Although I've found a variety of similar reports for various brands of wireless printers on Vista or Windows 7, I've not seen a solution. My latest attempt is to share the printer on the Dell 700m and print to the shared printer from the XPS 15. We'll see if that continues to work for a few days (I suspect it will).

Shane,

First open up MS Works and go to File > Print... In the list of printers to choose from, make sure you're printing to the correct printer. Sometimes after a new install, MS Works will try to print to the 'default' printer or the fax printer - so that might be your problem.

If after you've checked that and it still won't print ot the correct printer, then read this article. I hope you will find your answer.

Hope someone can help as this is driving me mad!

Last night I went to print a document from my printer (HP Deskjet 1360) it failed to print. On checking control panel, the printer was showing as 'offline' but with no means of restoring it on line via right click menu.

I trawled the HP website and downloaded complete set of new Vista compatible drivers/installation software (all 106mb of it!) but printer still failed to print.

This time I received an error message stating that the printer cartridge on the right hand side was 'incompatible' which is confusing as both cartridges are HP originals.

I switched the PC off a while and when I rebooted I noticed that the printer, in Control Panel, was showing as 'ready' however attempting to print bought up the 'incompatible printer cartridge' error message.

I was thinking if the problem could lie with the USB cable linking printer and PC and if it would be worth replacing it. It would be a cheaper option that replacing the printer which I will have to do at this rate.

Any help would be appreciated.

Problem:  I had to print 2 Word documents and 1 Excel document. The Word documents printed fine. The Excel document would not print. 
 
Symptoms:
(1) I had configured the HP Deskjet printer preferences "Paper/Quality" for "Plain Paper, Fast Draft Quality". 
(2) The document showed up in the print queue for the HP Deskjet but it never printed. 
(3) I opened the Excel document, clicked on Print. Under "Printer", the HP Deskjet was listed.
(4) In the Excel Print screen, clicked on "Printer Properties". The "Media" drop down list showed "Normal Quality", not "Fast Draft Quality". This led me to believe that although the document appears to show the correct printer, for some reason it was not communicating properly with the printer. The drop down list should have displayed "Fast Draft Quality" like it usually does.

I am using the spreadsheet in Microsoft Works and have Windows XP on my computer. I have printed other spreadsheets prior to this one, but cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong here. When I call for Print Preview, it only shows that one square to be printed. Pulling up older spreadsheets (one week old, that is), I have no problem either viewing in print preview or printing. HELP!

hi hh521,

I don't use MS Works, but if it were Excel first thing I'd check would be if I had a PRINT AREA set and if so remove it.

Inadvertently setting the Print Area to a single cell would give you what you describe.

Also, when highlighting the cells to print, when you press Print are you specifying 'Selection'.

I have an HP deskjet 722C about 7 yr old that has a parallel connection only. I recently updated my 5 Y/O pc to a more current model that does not have a parallel printer port. The printer prints fine & I have several spare cartridges that cost a lot of $$ that i don't want to waste so I'm not eager to buy another printer. I therefore bought a parallel to usb cable hoping it would solve the problem. When i attached the cable, windows responded by recognizing it (good) & announced that it was installed correctly (good). I saw the printer in devices & printers (good) & set it as my default printer. However, when i try to print a document, everything seems to be fine, including print preview, but the printer is totally silent, not a peep. D&P shows 1 document in the cue, waiting for printing, but nothing happens. The printer seems to be the only link in the chain that does'nt know that everything is hunky dory.

Is there a simple solution to this or is the printer toast?

I just read on one of your threads that it is important to occasionally print in color to prevent the cartridge from drying out - I was unaware of this and I usually change the settings each time to "EconoFast" and "Print in Grayscale" when I print web pages and etc. The color cartridge is about a year old and very seldom used, The last time I remember actually printing in color was probably about 2-3 months ago, and prior to that I had never experienced this type of problem. I did not notice any changes in the quality of the color at that time (fading etc.) When a cartridge dries out does it happen gradually with the color fading with each printed page or what ?

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi Kraft
Yes a color cartridge can just dry out quickly and not work. You should try printing a test page from your printer to double check. Most HP printers have some type of self test print you can run by pushing the buttons on the control panel. Check in your instruction book to find out how to run yours. If you still have no color you know its not windows or a driver causing you a problem. BOL

ok, got this beast for free, plugged it in, loaded drivers, went to print a test page and, there is some clicking noise, it loads a sheet of paper and then the yellow resume light flashes, no pattern, just constant blinking. A little later a message comes up on the monitor saying print failed blah, blah, etc.. I cancel the printing jobs, and the printer spits the blank sheet out.
Of course I'm thinking it was free for a reason, but it came from my wife's boss, he's replacing some printers and he's giving some of the old ones away, so is it busted, or am i missing something here.

A friend has a HP 560C running on an old 486dx. When he tries to print an email out everything works fine except that the bottom line of print doesn't print correctly. It prints the top 10% or so of the line but the rest is a combo of blur and non print. I checked the printer settings but could find no settings in there that I felt would affect the bottom print line. Never did find any scaleable margins or page size which I thought might help. Page size seemed to be preset .
The system uses Win95 O.S., not enough memory to upgrade to 98, and he uses explorer and web based email through Juno.

I did try to print from Eduro and the page printed in its entirity, but we ended up with the header info. Tried copy/paste and lost the last line when printing out of word pad or note pad.

Any suggestions or solutions would be appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

What browser are you using to print from? Check the settings in the browser itself because it's not a printer problem. Have you also tried a different version of the same driver?

Hello everyone,
Ok, basically I have an HP Deskjet 656c (also known as the apollo 2500/2600). The problem I have is that it will not print anything when running on the Windows XP O/S. I used to have it hooked up to my ME O/S machine and it worked fine. When I attempt to print off of any word processing program (even notepad) the printer just sits there, and it doesn't even get pooled. When I run it inside of the print assstant it feeds the paper through, and nothing is printed.

- I assumed that the driver CD that came with my printer, was for windows 95/98/ME/Millenium...SO I went to the HP site and downlaoded the driver that stated it was for the Windows XP O/S. I did a complete clean installation of it, following the onscreen and websites instructions. The same problem above had occured when I tried to re-print..

So basically I am not sure if it is my computer, O/S or the driver file?

Sorry for the long read, hope it was clear enough to understand...if not just post and Ill clarify anything

Thanks for reading!

P.S - I am running Windows XP Professional, and when I say clean install I mean removing it from add/remove, deleting it from the printers/faxes and also deleting files in the Program Files folder

Hi, just had printer delivered and it won't print, gives constant paper jam errors when there aren't any paper jams, won't turn off and the light won't stop flashing. When says onscreen that it's deleting printjob, takes forever, and am having to reboot computer a couple of times before printjob finally isn't listed. Only way can turn printer off is to unplug power. Haven't been able to print anything, even when the paper jam messages aren't coming up and it looks onscreen as if it's printing.

Cartridges don't seem to be sitting right ... would have thought would be fully underneath at the left, but one cartridge is showing, and every time I try to press the power-off button or cancel-button, the cartridges clunk as if are trying to sit underneath, but don't. Not sure if printer's taken a bash on way here; box was bit old-looking. Have looked at all the information, and have emailed HP's tech support, but no idea how long it could be until hear back, so wanted to post as had very helpful replies previously. Fed up, got some stuff really need to print out!
Thanks, Cat

A:help HP deskjet 710C wont print from 7 machine

It would very much be of great assistance if you could fill out your specifications on your system profile. This allows us to answer your questions knowing a bit about your system and reduces asking questions over and over. Also if you ask a question and have to go off and do other things the last thing you want is more questions to answer when the idea was to get your problem solved.

So no the questions begin, what version of Windows 7 are you using 32 or 64 bit? How are you converting your LPT connection, is it by means of a Centronics LPT to USB connector? IF that is what you are using it had problems working in Vista 64 bit so I imagine it hasn;t changed in Windows 7. It needs a real LPT connection.

For some reason when I started to use the above printer today I got the error message up about the spool subsystem app not running. I googled the message and have tried everything to get it working that was on the Microsoft website. I have stopped the spool running and restarted it to no avail. I booted up in Safe mode and proceeded to follow the instrucions on MS `s site deleting all the registry keys it stated, but it still keeps appearing, can anyone please help me?

I am running XP Home SP3, and until this morning was running fine..

Thx in advance for input :

error writing to LPT 1
unknown system error

comments : I have external Iomega Zip drive and HP ScanJet 5P as part of my system. The printer starts to print word document and stops mid stream. In the past I have shut down computer, restarted and it works. I'm thinking of uninstalling printer and scanner and reinstalling. In the past I have had .dll error messages(I may have inadvertently deleted some .dll a while back when moving scanner files from C drive to Zip drive, my system has never been the same since.) Your consideration is appreciated and lunch is on me if we ever meet.

My laptop has Windows Vista Home Premium installed and I can't get it to print to my HP Deskjet 995C. When I try to print, I get a 0.0000007a error message. HP website says this printer is not supported in Windows Vista. Is there any way I can work around this or do I need to go out and buy a new printer?

Hi!

I'm hoping someone here has some better ideas - I'm pretty tech savvy and this one has me totally defeated.

I have a home business and I use a wide format printer, an HP Deskjet 510c that was working great via a small print server running on a Raspberry Pi until 2 days ago. I was experiencing some lag with a software program that is specific to my business and my husband decided he would be helpful and "fix" it. He has no idea what he did but now I can't print to this printer even when it's directly connected to my PC.

I am not having any issues printing to the other printer, a wireless standard-size laser printer.

Jobs just don't show up in the queue at any paper size other than 8.5 x 11 when the printer only has a 42" roll, not 8.5 x 11 sheets. There seems to be no way to tell it that it contains a roll because when I select the correct paper size from the print dialog box, it simply doesn't put the job in the queue. The printer itself is set up for the roll and knows the roll is there. I can get it to print a test page or a single line of text from notepad, provided I tell it the media size is 8.5 x 11, which it then prints on a 42" x 11" strip of paper without protest.

What we've tried:

1. Uninstalled and reinstalled driver. Printer no longer has drivers on HP's website so apparently husband found one on some 3rd party site (sigh).

2. Updated all relevant software and windows updates

3. Disc... Read more

I have been using the DeskJet Ink Advantage 4535 printer and recently I have been receiving the '' attention required'' message. Though there is no problem with the wireless connection or cartridge, it says '' this is a web services printer'' and does not provide the print.
Your assistance will be appreciated.
