When you get that kind of information those are instructions to the printer. It has been my experience that the drivers loaded for the printer are not the correct ones. Check to make sure that you have the drivers for a HP 5P printer and verify that is what kind a printer you have.

HP IIIp prints extra blank pages


HI there make sure that the paper tray guides are fully against the paper also try sending the job through the manual feed to see if you get the same problem. If you do not then it maybe that the paper cassette separation pad is worn and will need replacing. If your model has no rubber pad at the front of the cassette then you will have a metal hold over one corner of the paper make sure that when the paper lifts that the paper sits under the silver (Dog Ear) as this acts as a separator.

Hope this helps
Thanks J
