Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

When I try to print something I get a message,"HPZipm12.exe(HPZipm12.exe)".I then have to click "X" on the dialog box two or three times to get rid of it. I then can print. What is the problem and what should I do about it? I have already uninstalled the printer driver and then reinstalled and it didn't help. When I did that I got a message during the re-installation process,"Unable to start the application-the Java Virtual Machine cannot be loaded. Class not registered".

Please see the previous post regarding the separate matter of the HPZipm12.exe driver. This post shall focus on the Java Virtual Machine. This matter has been a subject of some controversy and conflict for some time, as these functions were provided by MS until a successful suit resulted in MS becoming unable to deliver any java code within MS solutions. This occurred officially as of 12/31/07. Therefore, I believe there is still a great amount of confusion surrounding the java software, features, and functions, and the best way for each user to resolve any resulting issues.

This matter can become quite confusing and overwhelming due to the sheer volume of material that has accumulated since 2001 (the suit date) and through 12/31/07, when MS could no longer support their version of the java programming code. Summarizing as briefly as possible, MS delivered java functionality through msjavax86.exe, which they referred to as MS Virtual Machine. Though this particular page does not specifically address your printer, it explains how to tell if you have the MSVM installed, and graphically depicts IE settings that facilitate the features: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00093900&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=91463&rule=45573&lang=en.
Further, at the bottom of the page, there is a definitive link to the specific java page for downloading java software should it be required. This link is: http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp.

If you were to search for it, you could find several locations from which you could download the MSVM, file msjavax86.exe. However, this is not recommended, as MS can not legally provide any support, nor can they provide any security updates, patches, fixes, etc., and there have been no further upgrades of that particular piece of software. If it is already and still currently present on your machine, though, you may continue to use it if it serves the purposes for which you need it. If you find that you have MSVM, and change the settings, but still do not see resolution, then you should download the java solution as indicated.

There have also been indications that installation of IE7 could create the need for a patch, presumably on older machines which still hae the MSVM available, and these primarily relate to scanning issues. If this is your situation, and you need further assistance with that area, please advise. However, you should also be aware that there are many updates/downloads available for this printer, including firmware, which could affect any function of your all-in-one. Please advise as to how the data I have provided for your use has impacted your equipment, as any remaining issues can be solved - and I will help you until they are!

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution.

To work around this issue, reduce the complexity of your PostScript print job. For example, set the TrueType Font Download option to Automatic, Outline, or Bitmap as follows:
  1. In Control Panel, open the Printers (or Printers and Faxes) folder.
  2. Right-click your PostScript printer, and then click Properties.
  3. Click Printing Preferences, click Layout, and then click Advanced.
  4. Double-click PostScript Options, and then click TrueType Font Download Option.
  5. In the True Type Font Download Option box, click Automatic. If Automatic is already selected, click Outline or Bitmap.
  6. Close the Printer Properties dialog box, and then close Control Panel.
hope this helps you.. please vote.. thanks

Hp j6480 printer wont print keeps sending a paper mismatch message


Paper mismatch errors occur because the product scans the width of the envelope before printing. If the paper size setting in the printer driver does not match the paper actually loaded in the product, the product reports a 'Paper Mismatch' error. The message saves paper and ink by preventing print jobs from accidentally printing on the wrong paper. For example, the print job might be for a 101.6 x 152.4 mm (4 x 6 inch) photo, but there is letter-size paper loaded in the product. The error message displays to make sure that ink is not wasted on the wrong paper type. try this out , disable the automatic paper type sensor.
  1. Open the Print dialog box.
    1. In Word 2003, click File , and then click Print
    2. In Word 2007, click the Office button (c01850900.gif ), and then click Print .
  2. Make sure that your product is in the Name drop-down list box, and then clickProperties .
  3. Click the Features or Paper/Quality tab.
  4. In the Paper type drop-down list, click Plain paper .
  5. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box.
  6. Click OK again to print the current print job.

It sounds like you need to clear the print spooler.

If you have Windows XP,Vista, or Win7 try this:
go to START>RUN - in the OPEN box, type "taskmgr" (without quotes) you can also do a CTRL/ALT/DEL
when the task manager comes up,
go to the processes tab, and look for "spoolsv.exe"
left click it, and choose END PROCESS. it will warn you that ending it might cause instability. say yes or ok, its not a problem - you're going to restart it in a minute.

now, go back to the START>RUN box, and in there, type "spoolsv.exe" again without quotes

now try printing again - you should be all set

good luck!

I REPLACED MY INK CARTRIDGES. I WAS PROMPTED TO


Ignore the error and continue printing. The print job might still be acceptable even if the paper size and paper type settings are not an exact match.
  1. Press Enter on the control panel to clear the error message.
  2. Try the print job again.
  • If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the issue persists , continue to the next solution.
    Use the HP product software, also known as the printer driver, to change the print settings for your paper size and type depending on your version of Microsoft Word.
    1. In Microsoft Word, click File , and then click Print .
    2. Make sure that your HP product is in the Name drop-down list box, and then clickProperties .
    3. Click the Features tab, or the Paper/Quality tab.
    4. Select a paper size from the Size drop-down list.If the required paper size is not in the drop-down list, follow these steps to create a custom paper size.
      1. Select Custom from the drop-down list.
      2. In the Custom Paper Size dialog box, type a name for the new custom size.
      3. In the Width and Height boxes, type the dimensions.
      4. Select the unit of measurement, and then click Save .
      5. Click OK to close the Custom Paper Size dialog box, and then click OKagain to close the Properties dialog box. NOTE: You must exit the Properties dialog box to apply your changes.
      6. Open the Properties dialog box again, and then select the new custom size from the Size drop-down list.
    5. Select the paper type.
      1. In the Paper Type or Type is drop-down list, click More .
      2. Click the desired paper type, and then click OK .
    6. Select the paper source from the Paper Source drop-down list.
    7. Change any other settings, and then click OK to close the Properties dialog box.
    8. Try the print job again.
      Paper mismatch errors occur because the printer scans the width of the paper before printing. If the paper size setting in the printer driver does not match the paper actually loaded in the printer, the printer reports a 'Paper Mismatch' or 'Paper too Narrow ' error.The error message might also display when you load the correct paper, just reinstall the printer driver if above procedure does not helps. Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

PRINTER COLOR PROBLEMS


o.k. I can give you a few tips that may be of assistance.

you need to run a printer alignment page like you do when you put in new cartridges.

unplug your printer plug it back in.
open door and take out print ink cartridges.
put them back in and then close the door.

It should now prompt you to do a test alignment page.

Also, Another thing to try is to hit file, top left of page, hit print, click properties. color tab.

make sure you are printing high quality on chose different color management options.

FINALLY TRY THIS:

When Printing Becomes Faint or Colors are Incorrect

When printing becomes faint or colors are incorrect, even if ink remains in
the ink tanks, the print head nozzles are probably clogged. Follow the
procedures below to maintain the print head.
Important Before maintaining the print head, check the following;
􀁺 Open the front cover and make sure that the ink tank
contains ink. If it is out of ink, replace it.
􀁺 Ensure that all the orange tape of the ink tank has been
peeled off.
􀁺 Press "PUSH" on the ink tank and ensure that the ink tank
is installed securely.
􀁺 Increase the Print Quality setting in the printer driver
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
Print the nozzle check pattern to determine whether the ink ejects properly from the print
head nozzles, and to verify print head alignment. Use this function when printed results are
blurred or the color is incorrect.
1 With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter-sized paper in the printer.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Print the Nozzle Check Pattern.
(3) When the confirmation message is displayed, click OK.
When the confirmation message is displayed after the nozzle check pattern has
been printed, click OK.
See "Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern" on page 52.
Note Nozzle check pattern printing can be executed also from the printer
itself. With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter-sized paper in the
printer. Hold the RESUME/CANCEL button until the POWER lamp flashes
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Print Head Cleaning
Clean the print head if you suspect that the nozzles might be clogged. Cleaning the print
head consumes ink, so perform print head cleaning only when necessary.
The print head can be cleaned also from the printer itself. With the printer on, load a sheet
of Letter-sized paper in the printer. Hold the RESUME/CANCEL button until the POWER lamp
flashes once.
1 Ensure that the printer is on.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Start Print Head Cleaning.
(1) Click the Maintenance tab.
(2) Click Cleaning.
(3) Select the print head to be
cleaned.
(4) Click Execute.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Print Head Deep Cleaning
If print quality does not improve by standard print head cleaning, try performing print head
deep cleaning, which is a more powerful process. Print head deep cleaning consumes ink,
so perform this procedure only when necessary.
1 Ensure that the printer is on.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Start Print Head Deep Cleaning.
(1) Click the Maintenance tab.
(2) Click Deep Cleaning.
(3) Select the print head to be
deeply cleaned.
(4) Click Execute
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Aligning the Print Head
This operation must be carried out when using the printer for the first time. Aligning the
print head positions allows you to print without shifts in the color registration.
Print head alignment is performed either automatically or manually. This section deals with
automatic print head alignment only.
1 With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter-sized paper in the printer.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Print the pattern.
(1) Click the Maintenance tab.
(2) Click Print Head Alignment.
(3) Check that paper is loaded in the
printer and click OK. If a message
warning you not to perform other
operations appears, click OK.
It takes about one minute to start

When I click on "print" to print something I get a message "Unable to start driver for HPZipm12.exe(HPZipm12.exe). What should I do?


Please note that this is the first of two issues referred to in my previous response to your original posting. This addresses only the matter of the message received in regard to HPZipm12.exe. In order to solve the problem, I believe it is appropriate to gain a basic understanding of the issue that is creating the problem itself. This is as opposed to giving you a solution that simply directs you to go to this page, click here, and click there... Further, with an understanding of the primary problem, it becomes a little less difficult to dig through the mounds of material available on any given internet site that may not be as accurate as we may hope.

HP multi-function printers, such as your PSC2110, utilize a PML driver service. PML ("Printing Industry Markup Language") was a markup language designed for the printing industry (printers, publishers, paper distributors, and ink/consumable suppliers, for instance. This is similar to the XML language to be used primarily in the grahic industry (at the time of development).

The PML service basically handles bidirectional communication between the PC and the printer, therefore being required for such functions as scanning, card reader functions, certain copy tasks, usage of the HP Director software, and updating of printer item status in the related system tray tracking icons, etc. Unfortunately, certain versions of the driver have been associated with nearly constant problems, and specifically with specific software applications, such as Sage Accounting, or with "unable to start driver" errors at startup.

Based on my extensive research, there is one potential fix for this problem, with the second being to disable it. (Note that this assumes you are signed in and working as an administrator.) The first is to ensure that your firewall alows the task to communicate external to the PC. In other words, if the firewall does not allow the HP function to communicate through the firewall as an exception, it will be blocked, and will not function, thereby creating the result you see. Please review your firewall in detail, and HP recommends that all HP software be permitted to communicate as exceptions to the firewall.

The second manner of addressing this problem is primarily to disable the function at startup, changing the type of startup to manual. Per HP, most ("if not all") of the functions will continue to work as they should without the PML driver. Therefore, HP recommends that, should changing of the firewall/security software not achieve the desired result, that the driver be set to manual startup. This will have the effect of disabling it at startup, and will require that (should you attempt a function requiring its support) you manually start the service as necessary. (See HP reference: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01179939&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=79488&rule=14279&lang=en.)

There are a number of other references, should you desire same, but this was the most comprehensive and relevant to the problem at hand.

If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution.
