The printer has dirty optic sensors in the carriage head. Take it to a dealer and get them to fix it, do not start pulling out the carriage as this component requires fine adjustment that can only be done in a workshop.

Will the hp photosmart printer use 8x10 photo paper?

You will have to check the equipment driver itself. While attempting to print, try changing the page size (go to page setup). This will give you an idea.

My samsung CLX2160N keeps printing with no ink on the pages and even though I print one page it just keeps spitting paper..also the green drum in the printer appears to be covered in black ink

If the toner is not empty and you notice that the toner assembly is dirty with print dust, then it probably is an issue of transfer corona failure. You will have to replace the entire printing mechanism. But before you go out and cash out over $200 for the new assembly it's best that you take the printer back to the shop where you purchased it. The print assembly warrants over 50.000 printouts, and if you haven't printed out so much it may still be under factory warranty.
If you haven't used the printer too much (never replaced toners, never printed out over 500 pages total) then there's an easy way to verify if the transfer corona is really the problem. Pull out the print assembly and check to see if the waste toner tank is full/overfilled. If it is brimm-full then you're definitely facing a bad transfer corona and you will have to replace the entire mechanism, or find a good repair technician that can fix the existing one.
Another possibility would be if there is some dust on the paper and you can see some of the print powder on the exit tray. If there is print dust on the exit tray that means that the fuser is not working. If the papers that are coming out of the printer are cold then this is deffinitely a fuser failure, and you're still stuck with either repairing the print assembly or cashing out for a new one.
About the problem with the printer spilling out paper all the time, see if you've set the printer to print A4/Letter size printouts or it's set to print infinite paper track (like those old paper formats we see on old 80's movies). Either way, the no print and the paper spitting are not related issues.

I am trying to print 4 x 6 photos, and have set all of the settings to 4 x6, but I the printer keeps printing part of the photo on the entire 4 x 6 area of the paper. Could you help please!!! Thank you.

I belive you are saying the printer is trying to print say an 8X10 picture on you 4x6 paper. If this is the case, the software is not being set correctly for the size of paper.

HP Photosmart 7550 - Full Page Photo Printing Jams at end

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Easyshare 5100 not printing on correct side of paper

Load a single 8x10 page and press Copy + Cancel until the printer feeds the paper. It will spit it out blank. Try printing another photo. Make sure Kodak logo faces up when you load it

I purchased a C6280 all-in-one printer on 7-2-08.  Iwould like to know how do I print 5x7 and 8x10 photoson an 8x10 photo paper.  I can not find out how to do it looking through the manual. ...

We neeed to manually set the size of the paper in order to print on abaove paper sizes.

Open the HP Solution Center and click on settings >> print settings >> printer settings.

Now select the paper type as plain paper and click OK.

Now click on custom settings and enter the size of the paper and give it a name and click OK.

Now close the solution center and reopen it again.

Now click on settings >> print settings >> printer settings.

Now check whether we have the name that we gave to the custom size previously. Select it and then click OK and then try to print.
