Question about HP LaserJet 4250n Printer

1 Answer

HP 4250 DTN will not print multiple copies

In the driver software we changed the printing default aswell als the printing preferences to 4 copies. With or without the checkmark for collated, the printer will still give only 1 copy of the printout.

We used the latest firmware, and have the problem with the PCL 6 and PCl5e printer.

We created 3 different printers for each tray.

Any idea?

    That is absolutley correct, if not for the fact that we have 3 trays. We configured this printer 3 times seperately on the same print server. and fixed the trays to one of those printers... so that you would have a single printer with according name for every tray. we only want one of the trays to deliver 4 copies. When we setup the printer physically to make 4 copies, every print to any tray will come out as 4 copies.

If this is ran through a network which i would think most likely due to the machine then you will need to change the number of copies to be printed on the control panel on the fron of your machine as well as that will have the final say over what comes out of it.

i think it should be as follows:
press the green tick, press down, green tick on print quality.

i may be worng on where its located as not used one for a while.

if i am wrong on it the go into the information menu and print out a menu map. this will show you which sub-directory its in.



Hope this helps.

How can i print multiple copies of the same document with 3 pages and have the printer staple the copies in the correct groups?


In the print driver you should have the option to collate, you need to make sure that that option is on, and when you go to send the print job, you need to make sure that you adjust the finishing options in the driver to tell it to staple.

Printing with HP Photosmart printers is controlled by the driver software that is installed during the printer driver installation. Changes to the printer preferences can be set and changed in the Preferences dialog box. Changing preferences from within a software application Preferences set from within a software application will only change settings for the application or the current document, depending upon the application. The methods of accessing the dialog box will differ, depending on the software program being used. One of the following methods will usually open the Preferences dialog box from within the application:
  • Click File , Print , then click the Preferences or Properties button.
  • Click File , Print Setup , then click the Preferences or Properties button.
  • Click File , Print , Setup , then click the Properties button.
  • Click Print , Properties , then click Printer Assistant .
Changing the default settings Preferences changed from within the printer driver will change the default settings for the printer. One of the following methods will open the printer driver Preferences dialog box:
  • Click the Taskbar Printer icon.
  • Right-click the applicable Photosmart icon in the Printers folder, then click Printer Preferences from the pop-up menu.
  • Right-click the applicable Photosmart icon in the Printers folder, click Properties from the pop-up menu, and then click the Printer Preferences button on the General tab.

My HP printer is printing multiple copies of the same document every time I print. The only way to stop it is to cancel the printing job.


it sounds like in your printer driver, the number of copies is set to more than 1 page.

go to printer drivers, and look under printing preferences, and look for what themultiple copies are set to.

My hplaserjet 1320 prints multiple copies when printing Excel Doc


The best thing to do as a starter is:

1. uninstall the print driver THEN
2. download the latest version from the manufacturer and install it

This rules out the driver as the cause of the problem
1. Go to printers
2. Right Click on the Printer HP Laserjet 1320
3. Click on Printing Preferences
4. Click on Advanced
5. Double Click (to open) on Paper Output
6. Ensure that COPY COUNT is set to "1"

If it is already set to one, trick the system a little:
1. set it to 2 and save that setting
2. then go back in and set it to 1

Good luck

Kyocera 3900 dn, is there a way to speed it up?


1.install the latest print driver; see if the rip/spool time is long or the printing time is long. The rip time depends by your computer (!) and the print driver (disable the collate option when printing multiple copies of 1 page = on the printer you should see 1/5 spit a page then 2/5 and spit another page for 5 copies of same page. If you see processing the spit the page then processing and spit the page means your computer is sending 5 times the same page instead of sending once and ask for 5 copies !!! )
2.use network connection instead the USB.
3.expand the printer memory
4.switch the printer from PCL to KPDL or Auto when printing pdf files.

My hp 1320 prints multiple copies instead of one copy


Go to "printers and faxes."
Right click on your printer and select "Printing preferences."
Select "Advanced" tab
Double click "paper output"
If "Copy count=2" then change to 1 and apply
IF IT ALREADY IS SET TO 1 THEN:
Set "copy count=2" then APPLY
Repeat the above and now set "copy count=1"

The process of setting and resetting the copy count fixed my issues.
