    Although HP is not in my area of expertise, It looks to me that the unit has a bad scanner unit. Does he get the same results when copying in color? Tell him to do a copy test with the lid open; a black page should come out. This is a great waste of ink but will serve like a radiology test that will reveal what the scanner unit actually sees.

My hp 5200 printer prints extra sets of multi page documents when only 1 copy has been selected for output. Is this a printer setting that I can change? Is there someway to reset to its default settings?

Here ya go sir, this is a cold reset option and it will reset all back to factory defaults so if there are setting you want back, you may want to print out a config report prior to resetting...

1. Turn the printer off.

2. Turn the printer on. When the printer begins its memory count, press and hold down until all
three printer control-panel lights flash once and then remain on. This might take up to 10 seconds.

3. Release .

4. After SELECT LANGUAGE appears on the control-panel display, press or until COLD
is highlighted.

5. Press . The printer performs a cold reset and then continues its power-on sequence.

6. Check all I/O settings and reset any customer-set printer configuration values.

hope this helps and if so please mark this as a fixya for me sir...

Scanner function does not appear to work. All

i would say possibly you are missing out on something..because if the other functions particularly photocopying are working then this should in if the photocopying function works then the scanner is ok cause basically in photocopying the machine scans then prints... perhaps check whether you are correctly following procedure to scan..most hp all in ones have a button on them that you press and it automatically initiates scanning and simultaneously the software on the pc is initiated..try this,if not then try reinstalling the hp software..hope this helps..regards

Simple and slowly remove the jamm'ed paper. Please be sure to inspect the system in detail (you may need tweezers) for any small pieces of random paper laying around.

After this you should be set please let us know if this issue persists as this would be a sign of other issues.

Lines rule across my print out paper at photocopying mode

Make sure you don't have a scratch on the glass of the scanner. If you have a mark, or scratch that matches the line ruled on your print, then there is your problem.

It;s also possible the scanner is jerking as it goes across the bed, which is causing the line. Is the line solid, dashed, bold, thin or just kinda there?

Hp 1317 psc

you didn't describe your problem briefly. 1. Check if you photocopy anything, it is coming out correctly you are doing. it means your scanner is perfectly allright. 2. if you are not able to photocopy with this printer, it means your scanner is not working properly. But if it photocopying properly and in windows it is not scanning it means software is not working properly, try to arrange new software from anywhere and try.
