Question about HP LaserJet 3380 All-In-One Printer

Printer prints all pages on one sheet of paper

HP 3380 Printer
Windows XP
When printing a multiple page document, the printer prints all pages on a single sheet of paper. The more pages in the document, the blacker the page gets with ink. It prints single pages fine.
I have downloaded the most current drivers from XP and nothing seems to change.

    This happens when printing from all applications: Word, Excel, Acrobat Reader, PowerPoint.

    Yes, I can see in the preview that there are multiple pages.

    I have downloaded the latest print driver from HP and also used their auto test feature that determined I actually needed a driver for a different printer than the 3380. Nothing changed.

    I have heard of the problem before and once saw a blog that showed how to get the print wizzard to fix the problem. My print wizzard would not behave the same as the blog suggested and correct the problem.

    It is the exact same problem on my LaserJet 5si. It started within the last three months.

What application are you printing from? also, can you do a print preview to see if there are more than one page? if that works, then your printer mechanism is not following the driver information from the print queue manager.

HP Deskjet 5150 print is too small


Printers try to fit web pages on a single sheet of paper. If you configure the printer, in the print dialog, not to shrink images and text to fit the paper, it will print on multiple sheets of paper, but the correct size for the images and text.

In a Word document, it depends on what font size you have selected. Most people would rather have the web page print on a single sheet, with smaller images and text than were on the monitor; than tape together multiple sheets for 100% size printout.

Prints one page on many pages


I think the problem is now fixed: I reinstalled the HP printer drivers, and made sure to choose HP DeskJet 845c in the printer setup before I printed a document.

Problem printing multiple pages on one sheet!


This is not the fault of the printer but the fault of word.

The way I did it successfully was as follow:
File > Page Setup > Layout = Landscape (sounds like you have already done this)

In the print dialoge, instead of OK, click Properties. On the layout tab, select landscape and below that select pages per sheet = 4 and then click ok... Then click OK to print.

Can't print landscape?


Make sure the correct printer driver is installed.Check your user guide.Read the information below.

Printer Settings
You can use the printer properties window, which allows you to
access all of the printer options you need when using your
printer. When the printer properties are displayed, you can
review and change the settings needed for your print job.
Your printer properties window may differ, depending on your
operating system. This Software User’s Guide shows the
Properties window for Windows 98.
Your printer driver Properties window that appears in this User’s
Guide may differ depending on the printer in use.
If you access printer properties through the Printers folder, you
can view additional Windows-based tabs (refer to your
Windows User’s Guide) and the Printer tab (see “Printer Tab” on
page 10).
NOTES:
• Most Windows applications will override settings you specify
in the printer driver. Change all print settings available in the

using the printer driver.
• The settings you change remain in effect only while you are
using the current program. To make your changes
permanent, make them in the Printers folder.

Guide or online help.
1. Click the Windows Start button.
2. Select Printers and Faxes.
3. Select your printer driver icon.
4. Right-click on the printer driver icon and select
Printing Preferences.
5. Change the settings on each tab, click OK.

Layout Tab
The Layout tab provides options to adjust how the document
appears on the printed page. The Layout Options includes
Multiple Pages per Side and Poster. See “Printing a
Document” on page 6 for more information on accessing printer
properties.

• Landscape prints across the length of the page, spreadsheet
style.

Why do all pages print onto one page when i hit the print button in a multipage document


I guess you are using word. In that case the default driver you use and comes standard with windows is flawed. Download a new one from HP.
