Unable to print text documents

I printed a text document and then flipped the page to print on the reverse side. The paper jammed. I unjammed the paper and tried to print the second page of the document. I did not get an error, but the page did not print either. I went through the trouble shooting steps and was able to print out a self test diagnostic test oc 2 pages. I then tried to print the same text page printed prior to the problem. It still does not print. I can print photos from a disc but not from saved images on the "C" drive. When I hit the print light on the printer itself, it says insert card. The print jobs stores in the queue and says its printing, but it doesn't print.

Some times image/picture files are very big files. That big size, in mega-bytes, some times conflicts with your amount of available memory. It could effect the print que or ram. Try running the file through a picture editing program edit the files then rename and save them. You can check the file size prior and then after you run the file through the program. If the file size is lowered it should print.

Print tow side on Canon LBP 800 Laser Printer


Hi
I have found both a Getting Started Guide here:
http://dl.owneriq.net/6/6b8eae44-71d6-4f7d-a01c-369b4426c2f6.pdf
and a User Manual (more comprehensive) here:
http://www.printerrecharge.com.au/manuals/Canon%20LBP-800%20User%20Manual.pdf
I've also looked through them and there is no mention of duplex printing capability, nor does the paper path shown in the manual show it as possible. The only way to double-sided printing is therefore manually. To do this
Print the odd numbered pages of the document (in properties box).
Remove the paper from the outlet and turn it over .
Replace it in the paper feed tray with the blank side facing you.
Print the even numbered pages of the document.
Please be careful to make sure that page 2 prints on the other side of page 1 and so on through the document, as it is very easy to put the one side printed pages in the feed tray with the last page, in the position to be printed first causing a complete waste of paper. Also leave the one side printed paper for a few minutes before refeeding as doing this too quickly can result in a paper jam.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

How do i get my hp officejet j6480 all in one scan both sides and print


To automatically scan and print, you need to use the automatic document feeder (for letter-sized documents) and have the HP Automatic Two-sided Printing Accessory installed.

Then to use the duplex printing feature, you need to set the printer properties to use the duplex feature. In Windows, open a document to print then click on File Print. Choose Setup and then Properties or Preferences (depending on your OS). Then click on the Features tab and set Two-sided Printing to Automatic. (This is a drop-down menu on the Features tab.)

You also need to set the scan settings for two-sided in the HP Solution Center. (If you just want to copy the document, you can set this from the Control Panel on the J4680.)

If you want to do this manually, you can scan each side of the pages. Then print them one page at a time. Then when the ink is dry, put the page back into the paper tray. (Note: this could result in paper jams.) The printer prints on the underside of each page put into the paper tray with the top of the page printing on the forward part of the page.

I hope this helps.

  6. Press Start.
  7. The printer prints the odd-numbered pages and the instruction sheet, which describes how to flip and reload the paper.
  8. Following the instruction sheet, flip and reload the paper with the printed side facing away from you.

The power and paper light keeps flashing


This could mean that a 2-sided document was sent to the printer and the printer is waiting for the page(s) to be reinserted to print on side 2. Check your documentation or the HP support page http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=75045&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us
for more information.

The power light blinking indicates the printer is preparing to print a document. The resume light indicates 1) needs paper, 2) a paper jam anywhere in the printer, or 3) the ready to print side 2 of the document.

I hope this helps.

Cannot print double sided


On the machine when a 2 sided document is inserted in the document handler, select the 2x2 button on the console. Press the start button and the machine will feed the document in, and do a reverse of the document for the second scan. In the paper feeder, the machine feeds the paper in and reversed the copy back into the machine, flips the copy then feeds the copy back for the second side to be copied.
If you do not have a m20i, the lower model numbers will not do two sided copies.

I have an HP printer scanner 1310 series. Have trouble with printing. It will run about 3 blank pages through before it will print. Then it will run a page part way through so have to open back to get it...


Hi Audrey-

There are many things that will effect how your printer handles paper. The most overlooked being the size of the document or image to be printed. If the image or text bleeds over the edges (left, right, top, bottom) of the document, several sheets can be ejected before the "visible" printing takes place. Often those first few pages look blank, but actually are the outer edges of your picture or text. If you are printing a large picture or large text document, this may be your situation. Try printing a document with just a few words on it (like a small email) as a test.

The second most common culprit is dusty, dirty feed rollers in the printer. Consult your HP 1310 series manual for instructions on cleaning the feed rollers, or consult this general cleaning article on HP.com. HP PSC 1310 All-in-One Printer series cleaning

The type of paper can also effect how many sheets are pulled into the rollers. Is the paper new?, Thick?, Very thin?, or is it the same ol' printer paper you've always used? Either way, remove the stack of paper from the feed tray, "fluff" it by fanning it (like flipping through a book very quickly, or the way Superman counts a stack of money!) and replace. Print a test page.

Let me know if this helps!

Unable to configure the HP C6380 for double-sided printing


Hello,

Here is the step by step right from the user manual. also here is a direct link to the manual.

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01527492.pdf

Let me know how it works out for you.

Print on both sides of the page
You can print two-sided pages with the HP All-in-One manually. When printing two-sided
pages, make sure to use paper that is thick enough so that images do not show through
to the other side.
To print on both sides of the page
1.
Load paper into the input tray.
2. On the File menu in your software application, click Print.
3. Make sure the product is the selected printer.
4. Click the button that opens the Properties dialog box.
Depending on your software application, this button might be called Properties,
Options, Printer Setup, Printer, or Preferences.
5. Click the Features tab.
6. In the Paper saving options area, select Manual from the Two-sided printing dropdown
list.
Perform special print jobs 83
Print
7.
For binding, do one of the following:
• For binding on the top like a notebook or calendar, select the Flip Pages Up check
box.
This causes the odd and even pages of your document to print opposite of each
other top-to-bottom. This ensures that the top of the page is always at the top of
the sheet when you flip the pages up in your bound document.
• For binding on the side like a book or magazine, click to clear the Flip Pages
Up
check box.
This causes the odd and even pages of your document to print opposite of each
other left-to-right. This ensures that the top of the page is always at the top of the
sheet when you turn the pages in your bound document.
3 5 1
8. Click OK, and then click Print or OK in the Print dialog box.
The product begins printing. Wait until all the odd-numbered pages are printed before
removing any of the printed pages from the output tray.
A dialog box displays instructions on the screen when it is time to process the second
side of your job.
9. Click Continue when done.

How do I print on both sides of my paper


On printers without a duplexer (a device that flips the paper to allow printing on both sides) you will have to print the first side, manually flip and print the second side. If you're using MS Word or MS Publisher you can easily configure the program to organize the pages for you: Start a new, blank document. -Click File, Page Setup then click the Margins tab. -In the Multiple pages section select Book fold. -Set your document to landscape orientation if it is not already. -In the Inside and Outside boxes, type or select the amount of space you want for your margins. -In the Sheets per booklet list select the number of pages you want to include in a single booklet. If the number of pages in the document exceeds the number of pages you select for a booklet, Word prints the document as multiple booklets. -When you get ready to print make sure you check the manual duplex box (should be in the first dialog box that appears when you click on File, Print). Word will print the first page, and then prompt you to take the pages that just printed and load them into the input tray of your printer. The trick is to learn how to orient the pages correctly for your printer. Good luck.
