My printer prints multiple pages even though number of copies in setting shows 1


Try looking here: open your printers fax folder. Your printer should be listed here, right click on it and select properties. Now click on the advance tab. There should be a printer defaults button, click on it. Make sure your copies number is set to 1. Then click ok on each window and close.

Hope this helps

How do I print several copies of a page on my HP 3015 printer


when you click on print, you should normally get a print window where you can indicate the page to be printer and the number of copies before you proceed with the print job.

Pages are printing, but part of the page has really light, some unreadable printing while rest of page is fine. What do I need to do/change?


If the colors on printed and copied documents are too light, blurry or not as bright as expected follow the steps listed below:
1. Verify the toner save mode is turned Off. When you set the toner save feature to On, print appears lighter.
a. Press Menu, 1 (General Setup), 6 (Ecology), 1 (Toner Save).
b. Press the up or down arrow key to select OFF and then press OK.
c. Press Stop/Exit.
2. Print a document from your computer or print a demo page by pressingthe FAX and COPY keys at the same time.

How do i get rid of the queue ?


Open printers and faxes from the start menu or in control panel if it is not on your start menu list.
Double click the printer icon for the 5610
Under the "Printer" menu heading scroll down to select "cancel all documents"
Select yes if the confirm box pops up.
NOTE: if there is a large que it may take a while.

To reduce number of copies in the printer dialog box when you click "PRINT" make sure that the number of copies is set to "1".
NOTE: This dialog box comes up if you select print from the Menu bar but not if you use the quick print icon on the toolbar.

Hope this helps
If not repost with more info like your specific OS and connection type etc.

How can it set the printer up so that I have preferences i.e selection or number of copies or certain pages only?


This is done through the print software. Depending upon what program you are using, there may be more than one way to start a print job:

1) Click a print icon within the application - this will usually print with the default settings, (prints entire document, 1 copy)

2) Click the "File" menu, then select "Print..."
This brings up the print job with options for printing, for example number of copies, certain pages, order of printing etc.

Double sided printing Pixma MP520


here's how:

print double sided pages

1. Set your computer software for double sided printing if you have a printer that is compatible. Double sided printers are generally professional style machines, and most offices, schools and libraries will have them. On a PC, go to the drop down "File" menu and select "Double Sided Printing" under the "Preferences" or "Properties" window and print. If you have a MAC, click "Copies and Pages" under the "File" menu, select "Layout" and then click on "Long-Edged Binding" and print.
2.Print double sided with your standard home printer, again, by setting your PC writing software. When you are ready to print, click on the drop down "File" menu and select "Print." From the "Print" window select "odd pages only," or "even pages only."
3.Set your odd and even pages a bit differently if you are working with MAC writing software. Select "Print" from the drop down "File" menu and click on the arrow to drop the "Copies & Pages" menu. Under the "Copies & Pages" menu, select "Paper Handling" and then click on "Odd Numbered Pages" or "Even Numbered Pages."
4.Select "Odd Pages Only" or "Odd Numbered Pages" and then print as usual. It is a good idea to mark the top of your first page with a pencil so that you know the direction and side of the page your printer prints. Use the mark to determine how to turn your pages and place them back in the printer. Select "Even Pages Only" or "Even Numbered Pages" and print again. $('.Article .Steps .Image').each(function(i,e){ e = $(e); e.find('img').error(function(){ $(this).unbind(); e.remove(); }); });
