Try this !
in the software application you are printing from
Open the document that you want to print.
2. On the File menu, click Print, and then click Setup, Properties, or Preferences.

Look for a Best Mode Setting
this printer has several modes one being draft mode, another one best mode
in best mode the printer uses memory to render the photo you are trying to print.
Note that in this mode, printing takes
longer and more memory is required from your computer.
from page 17 of the hp k5400 user manual

Also you may have to increase the virtual memory of the windows pc to allow the computers hard drive to allocate more hard drive memory to the memory swap file if the computer's ram is not enough to print the photo.
It is a setting in the control panel under system - performance.

SOURCE: printing black squares in word.doc

It sounds like this is an HP driver issue. HP drivers have built-in "optimizations" (that unfortunately have bugs) for things like printing photos. Different programs (word, for example) try to take advantage of these optimizations in different ways. When they work, they give superior photo printing (faster, with more accurate color). When they don't, you get black squares. This is why "converting" it to PDF worked for you -- Word printed it through the PDF driver instead of the HP printer driver, then when you printed the PDF file, that program avoided those optimizations when it sent the images to the printer. Unfortunately, the translation caused quality loss. If your goal was to print out something like a "proof-sheet" of photos, you might try the free photo organizer at www.preclick.com. It will print these for you, captions and everything, and should be able to avoid the driver issues.

I have an HP 4215 and I get the same printing response. It takes 30 minutes to print 1 page. How do I clear the memory or speed up the printing?

That is ink or dirt on the rollers, you need to clean them by lifting the lid, as if you were putting new ink in, and wipeing the rollers that the paper runs through.

Black ink not printing properly on HP Officejet Pro K5400. It's a new cartridge, have tried another cartridge too but same problem.


The print head may be blocked.
Run the cleaning cycle a few times on the machine.
This can be done through the software drivers loaded on your computer.
If this does not help, you will need to replace the black print head.

Ink cartidges are all installed and registering ok. New balck ink installed but will only print in colour and not black print what can I do as I need docs printed urgently?


Does it take (pull up the paper) in the paper? If so, Try to print only images and check if it works or not. It'll be much easier if you let us know the program from which you are printing. Also try to print only in text using Ms Word, wordpad or notepad. If possible update your driver. Good luck.

Officejet pro K5400 won't print pdf files


If these are web-based PDF's this may well be your problem. There are code anomalies printing directly from a web page if it's a PDF-based file (on many HP models).

If this is directly from an Adobe PDF (non-web based) then you may need to update or reinstall the print drivers. Also, Adobe Acrobat versions vary on how well they will send print commands to various devices. Try to make sure you have a higher version of Adobe than 6.
