Bhatmeister,

The problem is not with your printer, rather with the printer driver on your pc. Uninstall the driver and reinstall from scratch. if this does not fix your issues, your pc operating system is corrupted and will need to be repaired.

It prints only half a page.... how can i fix that???


Does the print fade out or is the printed page complete, just cropped down? If it is fading out then it is the cartridges running dry, or refilled using the incorrect ink. If it is printing the entire document, just smaller, then under printer properties you can set the page size. (control panel - printers and faxes - right click your printer and select printing preferences) I hope this helps Regards GM

Only the top half of a page prints. I saw online that others have had this problem but I don't see how to fix it. Can you help me?


Make a copy from the Printer, if the issue still persists, its time to check and clean the cartridges.

If the issue is with the Computer printing only, Delete the printer icon from the Printers Folder and then Go for Add a Device option from the Printer Driver CD or from the Full Feature download file.

Is only printing half of any page i have emails and even when i changed page to landscape it still only prints half


Hi,
Make sure you use the correct paper type. For example if you want to print on A4 paper then the printer must be set to A4. To see this, go to Start- > Control Panel -> Printers and faxes.
Right click on your printer and choose Printing Preferences. Then go to paper type and set it to A4.

If you are printing through Outlook, double click to open the message and then select File->Print (don't use the print icon directly from the toolbar).
Then, on the print dialog click Preferences, and see if the paper is set to A4.

My photosmart 7150 prints half a page(vertical half) ! It worked fine before this. Help! thanks


Ok, I was having this same problem and the solution for me appears to lay in the fact that the "photo tray" was pushed in, signaling to the printer that it should print to the size specifications of a photo (approximately half the width of a standard letter page). I should also mention that with my problem, the printer would hang at every single print job--presumably to wait for you to input your photo paper--and that executing this fix solved the problem.
To fix this, I followed these instructions: SOLUTION:Follow the steps below to correct the issue:
  1. Disconnect power to the printer.
  2. Remove all photo paper from the Photo Tray.
  3. Push the Photo Tray completely into the printer.
  4. Snap the Photo Tray out (towards you) sharply.
  5. Reconnect power to the printer.
  6. Print a self-test on 8.5 X 10 paper.
  7. Engage the Photo Tray.
  8. From the Printer Toolbox, select Calibrate the Photo Tray .

Only prints on one side


Hi, You have to remove the Catdriges from the printer and clean both catdriges and the roller. This might sort your problem. Secondly before printing check the pagesetup of the particular file.

Deteriorating Print Quality


This is Maltesecross. Turns out that the faintness of my printed pages was in fact due to a low ink cartridge, even though some pages printed out fine and others half-good. Eventually, all pages turned faint, and upon re-installing the driver, I got a low-ink warning (the first one ever). Putting in a new ink cartridge solved the problem for me.
