Question about Printers & Copiers

Printer will only print out a third of picture

Using a Mac OS X 10.4  with HP Photosmart C3180
First question:  After trying for hours using FixYa suggestions and more to print borderless 4x6s, I've come to the conclusion that maybe the Photosmart C3180 is not able to print borderless.  Is this true?
Most importantly:  While trying the above, I must have done something that is now preventing the printer from printing the entire picture.  It prints about a third of the picture and then spits the paper out.  (with border).  Then the printer's on button flashes for a while  indicating it's busy and then eventually has a stead green light.
Right now I wish I had just settled for the the bordered 4x6s!

    Thanks so much for trying to answer my problem! I was giving up on getting any responses. Unfortunately I am printing it from a file dragged from iPhoto to the desktop. :(

Are the files you are printing from actually on the computer connected to the printer?
I've had this problem in the past (with a different printer) - the image I was printing from was either on a memory stick plugged into a usb port or on a portable hard drive. I solved the problem simply by dragging the image files onto the desktop and printing from those.

My hp photosmart c 3180 will only print in black even though I have a full color ink cartridge. How do I print in color if i'm using a mac?


Hi, Go to the printer settings and select colour printing option. Before that make sure that the cartridges are not blank or not get dry.

Hi m_morris9,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify what version of Windows 7 do you have, whether a 32 bit or a 64 bit.

Please try to download and install the Driver of your HP Photosmart C3180 Printer.


Note: If the link does not open, copy and paste the link to the address bar of your Internet Explorer.


Hope that helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

How do I scan a multiple page doc which includes engineering drawings into one PDF file using my HP C3180 and Mac with "tiger OS X ?


Only one page per scan.But scan the desire doc and print it in the quantity you want.For the docs to be printed in PDF grab a copy of CutePDf that works as a printer driver.When you choose the doc in to printer you will choose CutePDF instead of your HP.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!
