  • Step Two: Clean the problem cartridge contacts
    1. Gather the following items to clean the cartridge and carriage:
      • Clean distilled water. Use bottled or filtered water if distilled water is not available. Tap water can contain contaminants that damage the cartridge.

    5. Dip a clean foam-rubber swab or lint-free cloth into distilled water, and then squeeze any excess water from it.
    6. Clean only the copper-colored contacts
      Figura 10: Clean the contacts
      [img src="" alt="" border="0">1 - Copper-colored contacts

    9. Use the swab to clean the electrical contacts in the carriage, located inside the printer on the carriage slots.
      Figura 11: The electrical contacts in the cartridge slots
      [img src="" alt="Image: The electrical contacts in the cartridge slots" title="Image: The electrical contacts in the cartridge slots" border="0">

    How to set camera mode to have time and date on printed photo. it does show time and date when i review the photo.

    Refer the page # 77 in the manual of the Camera to superimpose the Date stamp on the images or print the images with Date stamp.


    However, because the images shot with the Camera include information on the recording date, you can print images with the date superimposed if the printer or the software can recognize Exif information. For compatibility with the Exif information, consult the manufacturer of the Printer or the software.

    If you use a Photo printing service, ask them to superimpose the date on images.

    However, using the supplied PMB software, you can print images with date.

    That is the presentation that you get from a webpage. Webpages are using a different program and it will shrnk or expand the substance of the website you download. Have you tried using the "print screen" function in your computer?

    Anytime you try and print a webpage it locks up the print job and the user can not delete the job, I have to reset the print spool on the server then it will delete. Only does this with web pages internal...

    Chances are it's adobe-based web pages. There's a known problem with coding discrepancies on Adobe items imbedded in webpages being directly printed.

    If you can save the file to a full .pdf or maybe convert it to a .doc before trying to print it might do the trick. If not, best to steer clear of the problem webpage altogether.

    Printing black squares in word.doc

    It sounds like this is an HP driver issue. HP drivers have built-in "optimizations" (that unfortunately have bugs) for things like printing photos. Different programs (word, for example) try to take advantage of these optimizations in different ways. When they work, they give superior photo printing (faster, with more accurate color). When they don't, you get black squares. This is why "converting" it to PDF worked for you -- Word printed it through the PDF driver instead of the HP printer driver, then when you printed the PDF file, that program avoided those optimizations when it sent the images to the printer. Unfortunately, the translation caused quality loss. If your goal was to print out something like a "proof-sheet" of photos, you might try the free photo organizer at It will print these for you, captions and everything, and should be able to avoid the driver issues.
