What application are you using to print text? Word? Try a simple application, like Notepad or Wordpad, to print some simple two-liner text. Does printer print ALL the text on left side or just the half of printable material? Even if you are indicating that page size is correct, looks to me some problem with the selection of print area.
It might be the browser settings that is preventing you from printing the web page contents.
Try to copy and paste the contents of the web page and paste it into a text editor program such as Microsoft Word and Notepad.
Check all cables to and from the computer. Also check that the electrical cable is connected to the wall outlet. Be sure that all cables are securely connected and in the right locations and turn the printer on.
Step 2Try to print a test page. Click "Start", "Control Panel" and "Printers". Right click the printer. On the "General" tab click "Print a Test Page". Click "OK" if the printer prints the test page correctly. If not, follow the onscreen directions for trouble shooting.
Step 3Open Notepad and type some text into the window. Select "File" and "Print". Select the printer that you are trying to print to and print. If it prints, copy and paste the text into program is giving you problems. Try to print again, if again it doesn't print, then a corrupt font may be the problem. Reinstall the font.
Obviously there is nothing wrong with the printer, because you are able to print from the Internet.
Before attempting to print from word, excel etc, make sure you have the correct printer selected (check it through FILE MENU -> PRINT ->PROPERTIES) Do a print test by typing just couple of words -may be in different color- Best of luck luciana44
I have a HP Deskjet 1300n printer. I can print my email, pictures and
items off the internet, but cannot print any word documents or notepad
documents. When I print an excel document, I get an incomplete page-the
grid lines will print,and text garbage from a adobe program but not all the text. When I do a test print
page, I get an incomplete text page, but do not know how to solve this.
I have removed and reloaded the printer software-no improvement. There
are no new drivers to be installed.
Go to Start | Control Panel | Printers And Other Hardware | Printers And Faxes. Double-click the icon for your printer to open the Documents window and clear any pending print jobs by selecting Cancel All Documents from the Printer drop-down menu
Try printing a test page from the printer, not from Windows XP.
Most printers have a built-in test function that's activated by holding
down one or more buttons while the printer is starting up. Check your
printer's user manual for instructions. If this page prints
successfully, you know the problem is either with your connection or
with the software in your computer.
Check your printer's USB or parallel connection.
Try printing something simple from Windows' Notepad. To open Notepad, go to Start | All Programs | Accessories | Notepad,
type a few lines of text in a document, and try printing it. If it
successfully prints, the problem is with the software program you
originally tried to print from.
Try printing using Windows XP's generic printer driver. Open and
run the Add Printer Wizard. When you get to the Install Printer
Software screen, select Generic under Manufacturer and Generic/Text Only under Printers (see Figure 2).
Select No for Do You Want To Use This Printer As The Default Printer? (see Figure 3). Click Next.
When prompted on the next screen, tell Windows XP to print a test
page. If the page successfully prints, then you probably have a problem
with your installed printer driver. Either update or reinstall the
