Solved: Paper Goes Through Printer, but won't print.

Q: Solved: Paper Goes Through Printer, but won't print.

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite laptop running Windows Vista. I have also been successfully using an HP Photosmart B209a "all in one" printer with a wireless connection. I began getting low ink messages, so installed new HP cartridges. When I try to align the new cartridges, I get a message that says the alignment failed, but I can still use the printer. However, when I try to print any document I have generated on my computer, the printer picks up the paper and goes through the machinations of printing, but when it spits out the paper, it is blank. When I print a test page, it works. When I print a page from a website, it works. It will copy a document. It simply won't print anything I generate using my word processor or spreadsheet (I use Microsoft Works).

HP's Monitor program says that the computer is ready.

I have used HP Solutions Center, but nothing it suggests has made any difference. I have checked my wireless connection and it is working, obviously, or the printer wouldn't be getting the message to print, as it surely is, since it starts, picks up the paper and goes through the whole process of printing. However, nothing comes out except a blank piece of paper.

Hope you can help.

Every time I try to print anything, my WF-2530 feeds a sheet through and reports paper out. The unit has seen little use and has never had a paper jam. I have carefully loaded only a few sheets of regular 20 lb paper and it does it every time. I have done the same with some Kodak photo paper for inkjet and gotten the same results. It simply does not detect that there is paper loaded.

I have tried resetting the unit, powering off then on, disconnecting and reconnecting the power cord. Nothing causes it to recognize that paper is loaded after it feeds the first sheet through. Press the 'OK' button and it will feed another sheet and continue to report 'paper out'.

I don't want to replace such a lightly used printer. If I can correct whatever is wrong with the paper sensor it would be a blessing. Help!

The computer at work copies, scans and accepts faxes just fine but when I go to print from microsoft word it asks for a manual paper feed, if manually fed it will print. What the heck? We want it to use the auto paper feed like it does every other time. I updated the drivers with no improvement.

I was trying to print 2 sheets double sided (manually).

I have tried powering off and disconnecting the printer, and now have a "permanent" paper jam message.

Reading up on it, I found that this printer has an auto-duplex feature, which lead me to the question:

How damp is the paper going to be after printing duplex, especially if I print with 50% - 100% coverage?

My initial conjecture is that it wouldn't be wet or curled, as it would be counterproductive to Epson's image to provide a printer with an auto-duplex feature that would drench the paper.

After doing a little bit of research, it seems that it's largely going to depend on the ink itself. According to macworld.com, "pigment inks...are made up of tiny, encapsulated particles that sit on top of the paper, instead of being absorbed into a paper’s fibers, which is what happens with dyes." The article further goes on to state that pigment inks are primarily for the purpose of longevity. Well, I'm not particularly concerned about it's longevity but I am interested in whether it's ability to dry faster than dye ink is justifiable for an investment in pigment inks?

A little more research revealed that paper quality is also a major factor (duh). Only issue is, I've already purchased a bunch of cheap 20 lb, 96 bright white paper and don't want to purchase paper separately for this additional printer (when I mean "bunch", I mean that I possess cases of paper in the double digits). Another reason I'm hesitant to make any move towards better paper is that it seems that the higher quality paper is designed to ... Read more

I have a REALLY bad paper jam... My printer is MF4350d. The paper jam troubleshooting outlined in the manual did not help. When I opened up the toner area and the back end of the printer, I can't see see the paper at all. It looks like the paper is jammed in area that I don't know how to access to (if I can, aside from taking the whole printer apart).

Does anyone know any way to fix this problem? :/ The paper that got stuck was a label paper. I know for sure it is stuck because the paper did not come out at all. The WHOLE paper got stuck. The label paper half half label peeled off. I am assuming that the reason it might have curled up in the printer is due to the disappearance of that half label? :/

The label paper is a regular size paper with 2 labels divided evenly on the paper.

Is taking the printer apart the only way? (is that even safe/good to do on my own part?)

Please help thank you very much.

My company has several HP1300 LaserJet printers on desks that have developed an extremely frustrating issue. They are printing multiple pages on one sheet of paper. When printing only one page, no problem. But, when printing a multiple page document all pages are printed on top of one another on one sheet of paper. This started all of a sudden, and all of my 1300's are doing it - no other model. I have tried uninstalling the printer, deleting the driver and reinstalling - didn't help. I have tried using drivers for similar printers - didn't help. HP "customer support" is next to impossible to get on the phone. Anyone have any thoughts?

Hello all,

I have access to a Xerox Phaser 8200 color laser printer and I was trying to find a solution to my printing needs. I need to print a large amount of pictures with this printer and the solution that Xerox has, is for a specific photo paper that is almost a dollar a page ($23.99 for 25 sheets). I need to make about 400 prints and this is TOO much money.

Does anyone know of another paper that can be substituted besides Professional Solid Ink High-Resolution Photo Paper, part #016-1808-00, for the price stated above. They also have another paper, Phaser Glossy Coated Paper, part #016-1936-00 costing $22.99 for 100 sheets. This is a little better but still quite expensive plus its 100lb cardstock.

Can someone please give me a little assistance with this as I am stumped....

Well it looks like you are using a standard wax printer that used be be made by Tektronix before Xerox bought them out. When we had a printer like that we used to use standard recycled copier paper. If I were you I would go to an office supply shop and pickup a few different types to try. Dont get anything too heavy weight or it will jam in the printer. The real expense of these isn't the paper but the color sticks.

Okay, so I have a Canon Multipass C5500 printer and I'm not sure what type of paper to buy. I'm really inexperienced in this department, and I really have no idea what I need to buy. There seem to be all sorts to choose from, which is making this relatively simple task seem a lot more daunting than it should be.

I don't need it to print out high quality photos or anything of that nature. I guess what I'm looking for is something to print out documents on, colored images but it doesn't need to perfect, and that's pretty much it. And ideally, I'd like something cheap. Can anyone help me out here?

Hi, folks. I've recently become (among other things, it's a jill-of-all-trades sort of job) the tech support for a small company running Vista Home Premium. I used to be fine with 3.1, but my experience with XP and 98 was mostly corporate networks where I was lucky to be allowed to install Firefox without going through the IT department, and I'm a Mac person by choice. Until 2 weeks ago, I wouldn't have dreamed of touching Vista with the proverbial pole, so please keep that in mind when you reply -- this is the first time I've had admin powers on a Windows machine since the 90s!

Today's most urgent problem is a printer mishap. We have two computers connected to the same HP OfficeJet 6210 printer. The printer is fine, and it's making copies and receiving faxes just as it should; the printer itself doesn't show any error messages. However, both of our computers are insisting that they can't print because there's a paper jam. They spool files into the queue and then they just sit there. I've tried canceling all the spooled documents and starting over, we've turned the printer on and off and been over it multiple times, and we can't find a paper jam anywhere except in the network's imagination. Any idea what to try next?

When we were using Office 2003, i was able to specify paper size for the document i wanted to print in printer's properties, however, since updated to Office 2007 i can't. Actually, i can specify the paper size by choosing custom print then edit the size i want to print but as soon as i click okay button and reopen printer properties i can see paper size did not change. I have already changed the paper size in page set up by the way.
I checked the our printer's properties and it shows under security tab for everyone can "print" section clicked. But "Managed Printer" not clicked. Only power users and administrators have that privilege.

I preparing a display that requires printing very light ink on black paper. I have tried white, although a lack of ink makes sense on white paper, yellow and light orange. Looking very closely at the finished sheet I do not see any evidence of any ink being deposited. However, I can see evidence of black being deposited. The printer is a HP PhotoSmart Premium C310a. Incidentally, my Hp series D2600 acts the same way. Both printers print all colors when white paper is used. Any ideas?

A:Trying to print light fonts on black paper

To get even a light gray text you would have to use black ink on white paper. The "color" white is actually the complete absence of any color at all, so most consumer printers have to turn of all the color cartridges and rely on the paper to produce the "white".

You could buy a printer that uses actual white ink, but I bet they're expensive!

It occurs when printing PDF files, long word documents... basically anything that has a lot of info. As it is going slowly through once the first page is about 2/3rd printed the Jam error occurs. The next sheet has not moved at all so clearly isn't causing an issue.

I'm about ready to lose it here as I've tried to find an answer on the net and have spent way too much time with this to no avail. I have an HP L7590 printer I'm trying to hook up to my wife's computer so she can print from it. Her desktop computer and the printer are in the same room and I know I should probably just get a long usb cable and hook it up to her Vista machine when she needs to print but I've been trying to network it so she can just print easily.

I have the Ethernet cable running from the printer to the Motorola SBG6580 modem. The modem is hard wired directly to her desktop and I just use my laptop wireless. I have Win7 on my laptop. I've configured all the network connections and we are sharing. Her desktop does see the printer both wirelessly and stand alone connected. I've tried to connect both ways but no joy. I've even been able to do a test print from her machine but that's all it will print for some reason. It looks as if it will run the print and it shows the printer icon in her taskbar but it won't print. Any ideas?

Printer working fine, all of a sudden it just quit. It gave me a communications error. I reinstalled the drivers (Epson)with same results. I removed printer and added it again, didn't work.Tried from DOS by typing "dir > prn", didn't print. I checked the parallel cable by trying it on another computer and printer. It worked fine. Could it be the LPT port? If I install another LPT port is there anything I have to do configuration wise? Thanks.

This situation happens every so often. I am trying to print a Word document I have copied from the Web.

When I press the button on my HP Deskjet D1560 printer sometimes it does nothing and the light blinks, or sometimes it sucks in a piece of paper for about three or four inches and then stops. I then have to pull out the paper. It also makes clunking noises leading me to think that it might be working, and then...nothing.

I've unplugged it several times and I have also turned it off several times. Sometimes the blinking light will not go off. I have also shot down my computer a couple of times and then started up again.

I've tried at least ten times to print something very important and would appreciate any help I can get.

Thanks in advance.

XP problem. or more of a Printer problem. all of the sudden i can't print anything. the printer does what i refer to as a 'spin cycle' before it prints normally. now instead of printing, it just does 3 spin cycles. the printing job shows up on the queue, and it say it spools and prints, and they i get the 3 spin cycles and nothing comes out. i can't print any test printer pages, or anything from notepad. it's just kaput.

also, i should add..that the green light that usually blinks while it's getting ready to print still blinks for a moment or two like it normally does...but still nothing happens.

i've already reinstalled the software, i've tried another printer. it's as if it knows it has to print, but just doesn't. this is on a HP 3820 (the other printer i tried to use to no avail was a 3650)

it's USB connected. i haven't played with the ports...but if something got changed there, would the printer still go through the motions of spinning and blinking?

i tried to troubleshoot it with the guide and there was this series of prompt commands
Code:
echo hello ^L dir
or something that was supposed to make it spit out a piece of paper....that didn't work.

there are three lights that can flash...in order, they are

printer ink
paper jam
power

normally the power light blinks when it's receiving the print job, and while that happens the printed goes through it's spin cycle i guess to make sure there are... Read more

Windows 98 user, HP Deskjet 895Cse, I want to be able to set the printer to only print Black & White. No need to waste the color cartridge on internet pages, etc. I assume there is a place for me to set Black & White as the default and change it to color when I really do want to print in color.
Thanks for your help!!
 

A:Solved: How do I set my printer to only print B&W?

I use Win95 but 98 is probably similar, Start>Settings>Printers and r-click on the printer then select Properties. The printer program should have the option to select Black only. Just select the option you want.

At the office, whenever I print something, the printer will spit out a blank sheet of paper first and then begin printing the assigned task. Is ther a setting that I can make in order to prevent this from happening? Thanks.
 

A:Printer Paper:

Assuming you have a Windows system

Start>Settings>Printers and click on your printer.

When the box opens, select Printer and then click on Properties. I have an HP DeskJet printer and on the 'general' tab shows 'separator page' as NONE.
