Question about HP LaserJet 2840 Printer

Prints a pdf in all red colors.

When I print one particular pdf file, it only prints in red for the colors. All other documents seem to print fine for the other colors. Any suggestions?

Printing PDF on 8400 - example 265K PDF created from Acrobat 9 spools over USB over 22Meg and never prints. Any other files, Doc, XLS, we've tested print fine and fast.


I've ran across this a few times and the only thing that ever seemed to help was turning of print spooling so it would print direct to the printer. It ties up the computer while it prints but it does work. Usually in other programs when you see this kind of error the proper printer hasn't been selected or the paper size is wrong or the file being printed is corupt.

Hp psc 1510 wont print some pdf files (blank pages come out)


I've run across this a few times. And its always the pdf you really wanted not the one you just finished printing (Sound familiar? ;-])

Assuming the pdf is not corrupted then you can be missing a font which you fix by telling it to use one you have. Or if that's not it try printing it in greyscale only. I have had issues with printing color pdfs that work when you print them black and white.

Printer LCD says Cartridge Problem - Tri-Color. Refer to device documentation to troubleshoot.


Before you can troubleshoot the problem, you need to determine its cause.
To determine the cause of the printing problem:
1. Print another PDF file, such as the first page of Acrobat Help:
-- If that file prints correctly, the PDF file that doesn't print correctly may be damaged. See "Resolve problems printing a specific PDF file from an Acrobat product" in this document.
-- If the file doesn't print correctly, go to step 2.
2. Print another type of file (for example, a .txt file) from another application (such as Microsoft Word or WordPad):
-- If that file prints correctly, the problem isn't system-wide--it's specific to the Acrobat product. However, the way Acrobat interacts with the system may affect printing performance. Go to step 3 to eliminate some system-related causes of the problem.
-- If the file doesn't print correctly, the problem is system-wide--it isn't specific to Acrobat or PDF files. The problem could be low system resources, insufficient memory on your printer, or a poor connection between your computer and the printer. Go to step 3 to eliminate some likely causes of the problem.
3. Restart your computer, and then print a PDF file:
-- If the file prints correctly, your system may have been out of memory or resources.
-- If the file doesn't print correctly, go to step 4.
4. Turn off your printer for at least 15 seconds to flush its memory, and then turn it back on and print a PDF file:
-- If the file prints correctly, the printer's memory was too full.
-- If the file doesn't print correctly, go to step 5.
5. Print from another computer:
-- If the file prints correctly, the computer you first tried to print from may be unable to connect to the printer or the network correctly. Contact your network administrator or consult your network documentation.
-- If the file doesn't print correctly, go to step 6.
6. Print a PDF file to another printer:
-- If the file prints correctly, the computer you first tried to print from may be unable to connect to the original printer because of a communication, hardware, or memory problem. Make sure that the printer is turned on and connected properly, and then run a self-test on it to make sure that it's working correctly. For instructions, see the documentation that came with the printer. You may want to contact your network administrator for assistance.
-- If the file doesn't print correctly, see "Resolve problems printing any file from any application" in this document.

Printer seems to be skipping


As the printer is printing fine from word......try to print from notepad and wordpad also.

If it prints fine then it is a problem with internet explorer or it can be also a problem with a particular website.

If you are facing the same problem with all the websites then try reinstalling Internet Explorer.
