Won't print right over half the time

It does not matter if you are trying to make copys or trying to print off the computer one time it will be fine the n ext sheet there will be nothing or you may get bits and pieces of it and then the next page may print fine again but for the most of the time it won,t print and tells you it needs more ink I bought this one because Kodak is usally a good thing But this is a nightmare I bought this in April 2008 and i have bought more ink then you could image from Wal-mart and Sams club I have bought at least 2 to 3 packs of both color and black since i have had it and i am getting very tried of it. Please tell me how to fix this .

    I am having the same problem, more so with my black ink cartridge. I will hardly use a new cartridge (maybe 5-10 pages) and it says I need a new one, which is ridiculous. Even with a new cartridge it prints in horrible illegible quality. In addition the printer has begun making grinding sounds that just don't sounds normal.

If you haven't already done so, execute a "deep clean" of the print heads from the menu on the printer.

I was able to solve a similar problem I had by placing a phone call to 1-800-421-6699, Kodak's printer service help line.

My printer seemed to be far more efficient in using ink during the first 6 months of use. Now the ink efficiencies have dramatically reduced and it no longer prints black. The printer head needs to be replaced to fix the black ink issue, and I'm hoping this might also help solve the efficiency dilemma.

Hope this helps!

How to put printer in print mode


Actually, it does not matter what mode your printer is on when printing from your computer. Whenever your printer detects a print job sent to it, the printer will automatically acknowledge the signal and print the file - no matter if it's on Copy, Scan or Fax Mode.

My printer scans, copy but won't print from computer?


Hi,
Did you set this printer as the default printer? To do this go to Start - Printer and Faxes, right click on HP printer, select Set As Default Printer. If you are not see your HP Deskject F340 there, that mean your printer driver is not installed. Please install your printer driver.
If you already set it as the default and it is still not printing. Restart your computer to try solve problem.
You said that printer scans so the connection between your computer and printer is fine. Problem is your computer doesn't take the printer as it's printer device yet.
Hope this will help. Thanks for reading

My Lexmark all in one won't scan the entire document. No matter what size setting I put it on (I get the 'most' scanned on Automatic, but it is still less than half the page.)


Do you get the same result when making a copy using the Copy button on your printer operator panel? Try to remove the power adapter from the printer.

Wait at least 10 seconds before replugging the power adapter. This will give enough time for the printer to reset itself. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges. Load some paper and try to make a copy or scan again.

My printer is not printing all the horizontal lines


First try to copy and if copy works fine, means the hardware is fine and issue with the driver.
Do right-click on printer icon and select delete.
Once deleted, run the installation disc and click on add a device, follow onscreen instructions to complete the installation. Open printers and faxes window and then do right click on printer icon and select properties, click on print test page.
Check if it prints fine, if yes try to print from other application. I hope it will work.

Prints only top half of photos on top half of


I suggest that you go into the printer properties section on control panel. There Will be a section which allows you to tell the printer the type of paper, size desired, orientation of photo to horizon and etc. There is also likely a selectable setup procedure on the printer's own display to do the same... It sounds like a basic setup format issue....

HP psc 2110 Printer keeps telling me to Align print cartridges. I follow the steps but it always comes up alignment failed and starts printing Instruction page all over again. I can print from my computer...


Press the cancel button. Then press the "setup" and top "copy option" buttons together to enter maintenance. Use the right arrow (right copy option) button to scroll through the options if you like, but then hit the cancel button to skip the alignment.

Must Reinstall to Print


Most USB printers need to have the printer driver installed before you connect the printer to the computer, did you install the printer this way?

Also, check and see if it is the default printer.

If those do not work:

1) Turn off the Terminate and Stay Resident programs MSCONFIG in VISTA.
2) Disable HP device discovery service.
3) Uninstall the All-In-One software.
4) Turn off firewall and antivirus.
5) Reinstall the latest software for the All-In-One.
Hope this helps.

Please let me know how this works for you.
