Hello srannamarie,
Here is an alternate solution for your problem and I am sure it will resolve the issue however, you need to contact the application vendor for more information on how to fix the issue without performing the below steps.

Install a printer driver for an HP Deskjet 990C printer:

  1. Go to Start , Settings , and click Printers .
  2. Double-click the Add Printer icon. Click Next .
  3. If it asks Local or Network, choose Local , then click Next .
  4. In the Manufacturers list, choose HP .
  5. In the Printer list, choose the HP Deskjet 990C printer, then click Next .
  6. Choose LPT1 as the port, then click Next .
  7. The printer name should be listed as HP Deskjet 550C Printer .
  8. Click No at "Do you want your Windows based programs to use this printer as your default printer?" Then click Next .
  9. Click No when it asks, "Would you like to print a test page (recommended)." Then click Finish .

After installing, configure the driver by performing the below steps

  1. In the Printers Window, right-click the icon for HP Deskjet 550C printer .
  2. Click Properties .
  3. Click the Details Tab.
  4. Where it says, "Print to the Following Port," click the down-arrow and click USB/Deskjet printer port. The printer's model number and serial number should appear as part of the port destination.
  5. Leave the HP Deskjet 550C printer identified as using the following driver, and click Apply .
  6. Close out of Printers .
Then try to print the document. I am sure that the issue will be resolved.

Printer has started spitting out one clean page for every page that is being printed. That is, if I have a two-page document to be printed, it spits out four pages, two pages without anything on them, and...

Go to START, Printer & Faxes, right click your printer and select properties. Under the advanced tab, click seperator page, delete whatever is in the box and click OK. This should stop the blank pages from printing.

Hope this helps

HP photosmart 7280 - when printing with Toshiba or HP notebooks (both Vista) a blank page is ejected between EACH printed page of a document. HP had no solution.

Assuming that you are connecting directly to the printer via USB, on the advanced tab under the printer properties, make sure the "Print Directly to the Printer" option is selected.
