Try first replacing the ink cartridges. If you have done that already you probably need to do a printhead or carriage calibration. Below I have incuded a link to a free HP Service Manual to help walk you through it.

Hope that helps you.

How to shrink document to fit screen size when printing


Hi,

Scaled Printing
The procedure for specifying a scaling value and printing a document with pages enlarged or reduced to match the document to the paper size is as follows:
1. Open the printer driver setup window, and select Scaled Printing from the Page Layout list on the Page Setup tab.

figure:Select Scaled Printing for Page Layout on the Page Setup tab
2. Using Page Size, select the page size that was set with your application.
3. Do either of the following to set a scaling factor:
Select a Printer Paper Size.
Select a printer paper size, which is different from the Page Size, from the Printer Paper Size list. If the printer paper size is smaller than the Page Size, the page image will be reduced. If the printer paper size is larger than the page size, the page image will be enlarged.6c3578e0-f243-44b0-aa8e-f7bb7752ed56.jpg

Specify a scaling factor.
Directly type in a value into the Scaling box.

The current settings are displayed in the Settings Preview on the left side of the printer driver.
4. Click OK.
When you execute print, the document will be printed with the specified scale.
Note
If the application software with which you created the original has the scaled printing function, configure the settings on your application software. You do not need to also configure the same setting in the printer driver. When Scaled Printing is selected, the Staple Side list box appears grayed out and is unavailable (when Duplex Printing is not selected). When Borderless Printing check box is checked for the Page Layout list, Scaled Printing cannot be selected.
Tip
Selecting Scaled Printing changes the printable area.

Hope this helps

My printer won't print on a full scale.. meaning


this has to be set from the wizard for the printing job ...look for the edges size..but when you print on paper ..something like a full size A4 image ...it will always leave a 5 mm edge as default setting ..But like I said..initiate printing ..and in that wizard set the edge to 0 or ..click to remove edge if it is possible..anyway if it is possible there is the only location where you can change it ...and I'm not sure if it can be done permanently

How do i get full size 24 x 36 at 1/4" scale?


I just ran through the HP site and it now appears that the GL2 code is an upgrade item.

I also now believe that you need to be able to manipulate the image in an application such as Adobe PhotoShop family or Adobe Illustrator.

So we come back to exactly what are you tyring to do? How is the image being sent to the printer"? Does your printer driver allow you to do "NUP" printing as in "4UP". This allows the printer to automatically reduce the image of 4 pictures on the 24X36 page.

Printing to 4 x 6 paper


Hello oyam26,
For any paper mismatch issue, first thing you do is try to set the paper type to plain. This will fix the issue in most of the cases.

gud luck

You need to firstly have an HPGL2 card in your machine with the additional 128Mb ram chip. Secondaly you need to do an advanced head alignment and thirdly in your drivers set your memory to "not run out of memory" under the advanced tab.
