But if I try to print from Word or email etc it sounds and looks like it's printing but the pages are blank. Full ink cartridges etc - te test pages are perfect. An absolute mystery!!!!!!! Help?????????

In my case, reinstalling didn't help at all.
In Control Panel->System->Advanced Properties->Performance, enabling DEP only for the essential windows services solved the problem.

    As a followup, if you want DEP enabled for all applications, it's
    possible to whitelist the "HPDJ Print Engine". In my system it's
    located at



    C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\hpzeng07.exe

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

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 .

HP C6180 responds to print but puts out blank pages


All I had to do was clean the print head. Try these steps: Press setup, scroll down to tools. Select clean printer head. The printer will run a clean cycle and then print out a diagnostic test page.

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.
