Question about HP PSC 1410 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Can print A4 but not photo paper

- No changes to machine recently (printer or desktop)
- Not spooling the physical photo paper into "printing area" inside the printer
- Only printing smears along the top edge (where it should be pulled into "printing area")
- Smears look like streaks of ink along photo paper, but remaining surface blank
- Is updating drivers a solution?
- cartridges have been replaced recently (both black and colour)
- makes sounds for printing, afterwards spits out paper with above description
- opening "printing area" hutch during printing shows the paper is not being printed on

I have a canon mp 240 and it Prints fine if you only need half of the document. It cuts everything in half! Like it reads the header wrong or blows up the words or make extra spaces. How can I get it to...


I thought maybe you have the paper size set to Landscape rather than Portrait. If not, then you might look at:

http://usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp240#ServiceAndSupport

I did some searching on that site and it yielded the hlep below which may give you some help.


Issue: How do I set my printer so my printout fits the paper size I am using?
Solution: Use the recommended Print Area MP240

Printing Area title-bar.gif To ensure the best print quality, the machine allows a margin along each edge of media. The actual printable area will be the area inside these margins.
Recommended printing area (dark blue):
Canon recommends that you print within this area. (o_darkblue13.jpg)
Printable area (light blue):
The area where it is possible to print. (o_lightblue14.jpg)
However, printing in this area can affect the print quality or the paper feed precision.

o_area15.jpg i_note.gif Note
Borderless Printing
By selecting the Borderless Printing option, you can make prints with no margins.
bullet_s.gif When performing Borderless Printing, slight cropping may occur at the edges since the printed image is enlarged to fill the whole page.
bullet_s.gif For Borderless Printing, use the following paper.
- Glossy Photo Paper "Everyday Use" GP-501
- Photo Paper Glossy GP-502
- Photo Paper Plus Semi-Gloss SG-201
- Photo Paper Pro Platinum PT-101
- Photo Paper Plus Glossy II PP-201
-Photo Paper Pro II PR-201
- Matte Photo Paper MP-101
Performing Borderless Printing on any other type of paper may substantially reduce printing quality and/or result in printouts with altered color hues.
Borderless Printing on plain paper may result in printouts with reduced quality. Use them only for test printing. You can perform Borderless Printing on plain paper only when printing from your computer.
bullet_s.gif Depending on the type of paper, Borderless Printing may reduce the print quality at the top and bottom edges of the paper or cause these parts to become smudged.

I bought canon printer MF4150 from Singapore. The problem is when i print or photo copy A4 or legal size after 1 printer it errors and said load proper size @ MP tray


The printer may have a setup for a region which will change the paper size. Also the paper tray may need to have the paper size adjusted on it physically. Save the paper size in the preferences to A4.

How do I change the print size on my D4160 hp printer


There basically two approaches to changing the print size of your printer whether D4160 printer or any modern other particularly hp printer.
1. Go to file/print or simply do ctrl P on your keyboard. The print menu pops up. Go to properties/features. When the features tab opens look for resizing options. Under resizing options you will see print at actual size and scale to paper size. Select scale to paper size and list box will activated. Select the paper size to scale to from the list. If you are not familiar with paper sizes then this list introduction should do. The conventional official paper size is A4, half of that is A5, and half of that is A6.
2. The other procedure is to simply right click on the image and select print. A print wizard pops up. It enables you to chose size of images and automatically fits them into 1 per page, 2 per page or 4 per page depending on how many images you selected in the first place. However this is meant specifically for images/photos.
3. Again you may decide to physically resize them in the application (Word, CorelDraw etc) you are working with before sending print.

Paper jammed but no paper is jammed.


Sounds like something has fallen into the paper path. Use a flashlight and small mirror to look down the slot where the paper goes. You may have to use a straightened paper clip or the like to help remove the obstruction.

Changing Mode?


There is no way to change your machine into printer mode only. machine works in dual mode copier/printer.whenever you send a print from the computer, machine automatically receive the document and print it at the same time without changing the mode.like SCAN MODE AND HARD DISK MODE. So if you are facing a problem regarding printing then please check the paper size of the machine, and also check the paper size from the "PRINTING PREFERENCES" by taking the properties of printer icon in printer and faxes menu.(where installed printers shows) right click on the bizhub 200 printer icon and clickj on "properties". now click on "printing preferences" tab and then click on "size" tab, now from here check the paper size.its A4 or not if its not A4 then please change it to A4 then again give a print command.machine will start printing.

Kodak 5300 wont print on glossy side of photo paper


I just sussed this issue out. On the front of the printer tray there is another pull out tray, this opens up and must activate the photo printing for A4 because it stops the paper falling on the floor once printed (cos once printed on photo paper it may still be wet). As soon as I opened the tray (and it then opens again - you'll see what I mean) it printed A4 photo paper perfectly
Hope this helps others

This machine will only print certain sizes as borderless. A5 is not one of them. You can use the following media with this feature: Matte Paper - Heavyweight: A4, Letter Premium Glossy Photo Paper:A4, Letter, 5 x 7", 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6", 8 x 10" Photo Paper:A4 Premium Semigloss Photo Paper:A4, Letter, 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6" Glossy Photo Paper:Letter, 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6" As you can see A5 is not in the list, therefor you will not be able to print A5 borderless via the normal means.
