SOURCE: hp laserjet 3600 PCL XL error when printing a PDF

This is a known issue with 'host-based' printers like the 3600. You need the PCL5 driver, which this printer will not work with. You need a different printer, such as the HP 3520.

This page will explain it all.

Any error messages on the printer digital screen or the desktop? I take it the "The ink is fine" means that there is ink in the cartridges!

Try a test print via the Control Panel> Printers and Faxes> properties > Print test page.

SOURCE: My HP Officejet 6500 Wireless

I also have the OfficeJet 6500 and had the same problem. The black text was printing using a mix of colored inks instead of the black ink, resulting in a grey, fuzzy text. I finally found a solution. In each application under Page Setup, there is an option called "Format for". Mine had been set to "Any Printer". I changed that to "Officejet 6500 E709n [830E4A]" and now it prints the black just fine. I have a Mac running 10.4.11. Hope this helps.

When I print a doc it prints in blue. If I run a test page it prints black and blue no other colors. I reset the defaults on the menu but it printed one doc in black then started in blue again.


Uninstall then reinstall make sure you have the correct install for your operating system.
go to the manufacturer and look under support for your printer

Page isnt prining out Have new ink in printer


Hi,

Before you can troubleshoot the problem, determine its cause. Do the following steps in order:
1. Print another PDF, such as the first page of Acrobat Help.
  • If a separate PDF file prints correctly, the PDF that doesn't print correctly could be damaged. See "Can't print a specific PDF file" later in this document.
  • If the separate file doesn't print correctly, go to step 2.
2. Print another type of file (for example, a plain text file) from another application (such as Microsoft Word or WordPad).
  • If that other type of file prints correctly, the problem isn't system-wide--it's specific to the Adobe Reader or Acrobat product. However, the problem could come from Reader or Acrobat interacts with the system. Go to step 3 to eliminate some system-related causes of the problem.
  • If that other type of file doesn't print correctly, the problem is system-wide--it isn't specific to Acrobat or PDFs. The problem could be low system resources, insufficient memory on your printer, or a poor connection between your computer and the printer. Go to step 3 to eliminate some likely causes of the problem.
3. Restart your computer, and then print a PDF.
  • If the file prints correctly, your system may have been out of memory or resources.
  • If the file doesn't print correctly, go to step 4.
4. Turn off your printer for at least 15 seconds to flush its memory. Then turn it back on and print a PDF.
  • If the file prints correctly, the printer's memory was too full or had become corrupt.
  • If the file still doesn't print correctly, go to step 5.
5. Print from another computer.
  • If the file prints correctly from another computer, the computer you first used may be unable to connect to the printer or the network correctly. Consult your network documentation or contact your network administrator.
  • If the file still doesn't print correctly, go to step 6.
6. Print a PDF to another printer.
  • If the file prints correctly to a different printer, the computer you first used may be unable to connect to the original printer. Communication, hardware, or memory problems can cause this kind of connection problem. Make sure that the printer is turned on and connected properly. Then run a self-test on the printer to make sure that it's working correctly. Consult your printer documentation for self-test instructions or contact your network administrator.
  • If the file doesn't print correctly, see "Can't print any file from any application" later in this document.

Printed text is very small, not legible and does


Go to to print menu box i.e. press ctrl P. Look for zoom. There you will see "scale to paper size." Here select from the drop down list "no scaling" or "A4" depending your paper size. This shoule correct it.

In case you do not see these on your print menu click "properties" on your printer. In the box that appears look for "scale" and make it 100%. These are the components that control percentage size of original documents printed.

Prints gibberish


You need to ensure you have the correct drivers for your computer. Adobe uses PostScript drivers to print out .pdf files. Some drivers are Printer Control Language (PCL) and do not work well with .pdf.

PRINT SCALING


Print scaling adjustments are in the print driver.
They are in different locations depending on the driver. PCL or PS.
But there will be a scaling adjustment within the driver in te properties.
Will have to search through the driver features to find it.
