Try checking the print queue and see if any print jobs is preventing you to print. This is usually a printer icon in the lower right corner of the desktop, next to the Date and Time. You can also run a Print Test to test your printer hardware.
When you calibrate the 5100 AIO, first, you push in the photo paper drawer until it CLICKS. Next, print an alignment sheet. It will use the photo paper. Pull the drawer out, put the printed sheet in the scanner bed, with the arrow in the right hand corner, closest to you. Press start and it will scan and print a sheet on full sized paper. If your initial scan doesn't print onto photo paper, you don't have the drawer pushed in the whole way. There is a definite click and the green light will turn on.
after reading the manual, http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/2400/ug_en.pdf, yes it is possible - not that it tells you how to do it though so read on. Until you become familiar with the process just use one sheet of paper at a time in the printer. As you know, in the scanner the top right of your document goes to the right hand front corner of the scan bed (the clear window), place the page on the scanner and scan. Pick up the printed sheet of paper and flip it so the left hand side edge is now in your right hand and the right hand edge is now in your left hand and you are now looking at the blank side of the paper. Insert the page back into the sheetfeeder. Flip the page to copy in the scanner so the rearmost edge of the paper is now to the front of the scan bed and the front edge of the paper is now towards the rear (you should now be looking at the page you scanned previously). Scan the page. you should have now scanned both sides of one sheet of paper to another sheet of paper. as your printer does not have a sheet feeder for the scanner you have to do the process manually. hope this helps.
OK, Assuming you have Photo paper loaded in your printer and your photos from your camera downloaded to a photo software program. eg Adobe Photoshop/ Serif Photoplus etc. Bring up the photo/photos you wish to print on your photo software. eg click on the open yellow folder top left and open the fotos you want.Click 'Browse' if you don't see the ones you want. ( Open as many as you want to print.) In order to make your prints economical you can print two or three fotos on one sheet. Click 'File', 'Print multiple' and you will see format sheets in the right pane. If you only want to print two pics on one sheet click in the right pane on the two 7 x 5 sheet or, to print three pics of the same or different pics click the sheet with three frames on it. You will now see your pictures in the right hand frame and the format sheet in the right hand frame. Left click and hold on the pic you want and drag it into one of the boxes in the right hand frame - let go. That pic will now appear in the box selected. you can now size it to the box it is in. If it is the right way up eg portrait in top left of a three frame page click on fit to frame to maximise picture. Click and drag another pic from the left side frame to another box in the right frame. If you have chosen the three option sheet click and drag your next foto into the bottom box on the sheet. This is a Landscape box but don't worry. After dragging your pic into it look for an icon in the function bar along the top where, when you hover your cursor over it, says - 'rotate and fit'.(It's a square with funny corner bits!) Your pic will the be realigned to fit the the box. Having all the pics you want on the sheet click the print icon. (Picture of a printer on the tool bar.) when the print box appears click on 'Properties' and open the 'Paper/quality' tab. click the drop down box for paper and select HP Photo paper - gloss or whatever you are using. The quality will automatically set to 'Best'. Click OK and OK and the files will be transferred to your printer and it will shortly start printing your pictures. Bset of luck. Any problems at all, just get back to me. Cheers. Ian
from user manual:: To align newly installed print cartridges 1. Make sure you have letter or A4 unused plain white paper loaded in the input tray. The HP All-in-One prints a print cartridge alignment sheet. NOTE: If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input tray, and then try the alignment again. If the alignment fails again, you might have a defective sensor or print cartridge. Contact HP Support. Go to www.hp.com/support. .... 2. Load the print cartridge alignment sheet print side down on the left front corner of the glass with the top of the page to the left. 3. Press the Scan button. The HP All-in-One aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print cartridge alignment sheet Score the solution and download the manual if you need it
There is a long set of sensor flags on the bottom of the paper input unit that can get stuck and not move freely. This will cause jams from both trays. Try unplugging the printer, removing the toner cartridges and tray 2. Turn the printer on its back or side. You will see a long, black plastic bar with flags on it that runs the length of the paper input unit. make sure it moves freely.
