I managed to find the solution! : )
The postscript print drivers that HP supply with the 2015d printer are NOT suitable for Pagemaker 7.
You need to download a hp Universal Postscript Driver. When printing duplex on Pagermaker 7 adjust 'features' to duplex.
The HP p2015d Duplex printing from Pagemaker 7 now works fine on Duplex and @ 1200dpi.

The printed output is fuzzy, blurry, or grainy, or the edges of objects in the images are jagged. Solution Follow these steps until the issue is resolved. Step one: Check your paper
  • Many papers have printing and non-printing sides. Load the paper with the printing side down.
  • Use the correct paper type for the project. For everyday documents, plain paper works well. For documents with dense printing, such as high-contrast graphics or photographs, use HP Advanced paper for the best results.
  • If these steps do not help, try a different paper. Ink might not bleed as easily on heavier paper. Paper that does not accept ink well is also prone to bleeding and smearing. HP designs its inks and papers to work together.
Step two: Check the settings
  1. In the program being used for printing, click File , and then click Print . The Print window opens.
  2. Make sure the appropriate product is selected, and then click Preferences or Properties . The Preferences/Properties window opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab. Consider modifying some or all of the options in the Printing Shortcuts menu to increase print quality.
    • Print quality : If the quality of the printouts is not acceptable, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches the paper type exactly, select it instead of Automatic .
    • Paper size : Make sure that this option matches the paper loaded in the product.
    To see additional options, click the Advanced tab, and then click Advanced Features . The Advanced Features window opens. Consider changing the following option: Ink volume : Adjust the amount of ink that prints on a page. For lighter images (less ink), drag the slider to the left. For darker images (more ink), drag the slider to the right. The lighter the ink volume, the more quickly the printout dries.
Step three: Check image resolution Make sure that the image file has enough resolution for the size of the printed picture. Although many photo applications can enlarge an image or part of an image to any size, eventually the individual pixels become visible and the whole image looks blurry. Here are some general guidelines for image file resolutions:
  • 94 pixels per cm (240 pixels per inch) for images to print on smaller format photo paper, such as 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inch)
  • 117 pixels per cm (300 pixels per inch) or higher for larger format photo papers
  • Lower resolutions might produce acceptable images when printed on rough-textured paper
Step four: Align the cartridges If the previous steps have not improved the appearance of the printout, align the cartridges. See the user guide for alignment instructions.

PRINTING ON PAGE IS VERY FADED AND SOME PARTS NOT PRINTING AT ALL


First, checkthat the USB cable is secure in both the printer and the computer and that theprinter is sitting on a flat surface. The printer may not work if it is tilted.

Next, run a printer check to make sure the printer is operational. To run aprinter check, turn off the printer and the computer and unplug the USB cable.Turn on the printer and press the Maintenance button. Use the down arrow buttonon the printer to highlight More Options on the display screen and press OK.Highlight Nozzle Check and press OK twice. If a page prints out, reinstall theR300 software on your computer.
Lines inPrintout
R300 mayproduce printouts with light horizontal lines that are not a part of theprintout. This is called banding and can have several causes. First, trycleaning the printer head to clear any clogged nozzles. To clean the printerhead on the R300, press the down arrow button to highlight More Options andpress OK. Use the arrow buttons to highlight Head Cleaning and press OK twice.The printer will take about 30 seconds to clean the print head, after which youshould run a printer check as described above. If the printout has gaps, pressthe STOP button to run the print head cleaning feature again. Once there are nogaps in the printout, press OK.

If the printout still has banding, open the Print window on your computer andclick on Properties. In the Properties window you can choose the print quality,speed and printer type. Select a higher print quality and a lower speed andmake sure the paper type matches the type you are using for the printout.

Finally, check that the ink cartridges are not empty or close to empty andreplace them as needed.
Faint Printout
If your printout looksfaint or faded when using the R300, try cleaning the print head. Next, replaceany ink cartridges that are old, low on ink or out of ink. Check that the papersetting on the computer matches the type of paper you are using for theprintout.

Another potential cause of faded printouts is incorrectly loaded paper. Sometypes of paper have a printable side that is whiter or shinier on one sidecompared to the other. The printable side of the paper needs to be loaded intothe printer face up.

Photosmart C6300 pictures are printing very wet and grainy. printer is also very loud - almost as though the parts were scraping and banging.


Sounds like you have the wrong paper setting in your print properties. I would use photo or high bright 24lb paper and set the paper type in your printer properties prior to executing the print job.
