Hi Ken,
The user manual says this:

1. Verify the following:
There is sufficient paper in the paper tray (at least ten sheets).
The paper tray is not overly full.
The paper stack is touching the back of the paper tray.
2. Slide the paper guides so they fit firmly against the edges of the paper.
3. Press the Resume button to continue printing.

Sometimes my printer won't print if it has too little or too much paper in the slot. It's a relatively common sensor problem.
Try that.

If all else fails, here's a link to the user manual in pdf form:

Good luck

How to turn off test print on a HP DJ 6122.


Yes.Tell it to print a dot short word and when it starts printing unplug the power cord so it stops with the printhead somewhere to the left. Then do your cart change. It won' t know you did anything.
The 6122 will print from the HP 920, 930, 932, 940 & 950 drivers also - (which are included with your Windows XP and Vista systems). If you chose the 970 driver it will want a second sheet of paper to print a test page, which you can ignore and it will stop trying. All drivers seem to be the same print quality in my systems. I do not use the 970 or 6122 driver at all so I don't have an ink level monitor or any possible related potential glitch. I wet and slap stubborn old ink cartridges to un-stick dry jets. sometimes I use a small clear silicone tube to suck a bit of ink to get them started as the jet holes need priming sometimes if they are old.

HP 6280 Printer. Not printing. Ran diagnostics form HP software. No issues. Printer an computer are communicating. Can run alignment test and Diagnostic Print Page from computer without issue. ...


Well you definitely have a pc problem and not one of the printer. the printer just prints what it is sent and as you can print the alignment page that takes care of the printer.

You have reinstalled the driver but did you remove the old one first? I bet not. You should download the hp printer removal tool. Run it and after a restart then you can install the driver. Personally i would turn off the auto update feature as hp updates really mess things up.

I reckon after the reinstall the printer will be fine.

My printer will select a piece of paper and sounds like it will begin printing, but it doesn't print--just feeds paper through. Prior to this printer was working well--no changes were made---no software...


I downloaded the driver for hp deskjet 990c and reinstalled my printer manually. It now prints just fine--it just thinks it's a 990c as opposed to the 6122 that it really is.

Splits 1 page into 4 quarter pages. For example: prints first quarter of page, then at the top of the second page prints the second quarter of the page. Reloaded software, no help. Any ideas


It would help to know the model and driver type but if you browse to the printer driver and right click the printer and click properties look and the bottom of the screen and click print test page. If that page comes out incorrectly then there might be an issue with the hardware on the printer itself like a paper sensor or rollers that transport paper thru the machine.

Let me know if I can be anymore help

I have a HP Deskjet 1300n printer. I can print my email, pictures and items off the internet, but cannot print any word documents or notepad documents. When I print an excel document, I get an incomplete page-the grid lines will print,and text garbage from a adobe program but not all the text. When I do a test print page, I get an incomplete text page, but do not know how to solve this. I have removed and reloaded the printer software-no improvement. There are no new drivers to be installed.
