Question about HP DeskJet 3820 InkJet Printer
I have hooked up my printer correctly, it will print a test page just fine, but when I go to either notepad, wordpad or plain letter, I will type in a few words and hit print, and a bunch of nonsense prints out for example here is a bit off one page: %%beginsetup statusdict begin (%% productname:) print product name print ( }%%) = flush end. and it just goes on and on, and it also will just keep printing it won't stop, even when I try to cancel the documents. Can someone help me!!! Thank You, Vicki
This problem appears when you install your printer with a wrong driver...just try to find the correct one..good luck.

The last part of Sandrews post is correct. Event though you have printer correctly instlled, it is not your "DEFAULT" printer. You have an old printer that is set to your default. To check this out, go to word pad or another word processing program, create a short document, click of "FILE" then "PRINT", when the print dialogue box comes up, check to see what printer is selected. If it is not, then an older or other printer is selected as default. (DO NOT USE NOTEPAD) Go to START/CONTROL PANEL/ PRINTERS AND FAXES/ Find your current printer. RIGHT CLICK. come down to SET AS DEFAULT. Go to the application you where using. Again go to File/Print - see if your printer is now listed as the one you want to print to. You should be good. If this does not help, please post again before you rate this solution. Ed

First of all check if that is the Defeault printer. If it is, then try unistalling the software and hardware to start all again. And well just a lil' question, are you saving your changes on the document? Sometimes by doing this you can get what you really want. One last option is checking your PC with your antivirus and with some program anti spam. Some programs to change what you write are sent through MSN.

I'm assuming you're using an Alps MD-5000, since that is the forum in which I found this question. If so, I have too experienced this problem on my MD-5000 w/ Windows XP Professional, and after re-installing the drivers and finding the same problem, I figured out a work-around for it. First, if you're using a USB adapter with your Alps MD-5000 and Windows XP, there are no supported drivers for that interface, and you may experience all sorts of errors. Better off going back to the old Parallel cable, if you still have one of those on your computer! If that doesn't solve it, or you're already using a parallel printer cable, go to your control panel, click on 'printers and faxes', right-click on your Alps printer and click on 'Properties'. This will open up a window with tabs on top. Click on the 'Advanced' tab, and then click on 'Print Processor' button at the bottom of that window. In this next screen, make sure that in the right colomn 'RAW' is selected. If it already is, then there is one other possible workaround. On the previous screen ('Advanced' tab), there is an option bubbled-in that says 'Spool Print Documents so Printing Finishes Faster'. Instead, click on the bubble next to 'Print Directly to Printer'. This did slow down my printing slightly, but it resolved all strange artifacts and text that would pop-up on the resulting image from certain programs. Hopefully that helps! Good luck!

Best solution would be to dissconnect and uninstall your printer(Start>Control panel> Printers and other hardare, right click on printer icon and delete. Go to add/remove programmes and uninstal printer driver. Insert your driver installation cd and re connect your printer when prompted (always load drivers first) Hope this helps as it sounds like a corrupt driver, and make sure your printer is set as the default printer.
