HP Photosmart just spits paper out

Many times when I try to print something with my new HP Photosmart D7160 it spools and then grabs the paper and just spits it out of the other end without printing the required document. I cant work out why it does this, any help would be appreciated.

    It seems to do this only in portrait mode. When I print in landscape mode it reduces the image size to 1/3rd the size even if I select print at full size..

I have a HP Photosmart D7160 and it won't print 4 X 6. It has black marks on the wrong side when it comes out, but not picture


Try flipping the paper. Probably you need to resize the image for this size, sounds like it is compressed and squnched together into those black marks. See if you can use a preview function.

HP photosmart c8100 all in one printer 10x15 photo paper spits out when ever you try to print a photo from printer .new printer thanks Ray


do the normal copies of microsoft worf comes out properly without any spitting.then its the setting problem in your printer .you can change the settings through printer properties --just adjust the photo settings in your printer and it will print the photos.
but if the word document are also having the same problem its the printer problem get the replacement as the printer is new.

feel free for further queries.
thanks.

Hi, I've got an HP Photosmart D7160. It continually says "Paper Jam". Actually the error screen says something like "please remove paper jam and then press OK", but there is no paper...


This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.get more help and information for hp printer support hope this helps you.

Thanks

My Photosmart D7160 is telling me to turn my paper over as it seems to think the print side is on the back - how can I override this? Thank you


When you want to print something do it via file, print, and a screen should appear with the printers available but also with the properties button. Click the properties button. On the appeared tab with the settings there should be a check box to automaticly select the paper based on sensors. Uncheck that box, click OK, OK and it will not prompt you during this job. If you want to permanently switch this off, go the the same properties tab via start, configuration, printers and scaaners (in XP).
If you use the printer to print direct from a memorycard, go the the settings of teh printer and look for the automatic paper selection setting to switch it off.

Printer cannot grab paper,


The rollers in these printers go bad all the time. Your best solution would be to take it to a local printer shop and get the rollers replaced.
