What you need to do is go to your start menu and look for printers and faxes. Click on that and it will show your printers. Make sure your printer is the default printer, how to do this is by right-clicking the name of your printer, and then selecting "set as default" or something like that text. after you do that your printers name will have a check on it. Make sure to delete any old printers that aren't yours because they'll block it out. If still nothing, also make sure it isn't on pause. If it is you should be able to right-click it and select "resume printing" and it should now work.

Memory low message on hp laserjet pro 200

see HP LaserJet Pro Printers Memory is Low message displayed on the control...

HP LaserJet Pro Printers - 'Memory is Low' message displayed on the control panel HP LaserJet Pro - Troubleshoot 20.xx (memory failure) and 21.xx (print failure) error messages (ID: emr_na-c05049204)
HP Customer Support page and ensure the printer is running the latest available firmware. Print a Configuration Report from the control panel of the printer to check the installed firmware version.
  • If the printer supports expandable memory, you can install additional memory in the form of a DIMM. Check the printer's User Guide to see if it supports additional memory.
  • Break complex print jobs into smaller jobs that contain fewer pages.
  • If the printer is an MFP, delete stored faxes to increase available memory. Go to this document for instructions: HP LaserJet Pro MFP - Delete faxes from memory (ID: emr_na-c03264743)
  • Power cycle the printer to delete stored fonts or macros. It is possible to download fonts or macros in a way that power cycling the printer will not delete them; see Appendix A - Memory Allocation.
  • Changing some software and/or print driver settings might result in a less complex print job.
  • Use a different print driver. For example, a PostScript print driver will typically result in a more complex print file. If possible, try sending the file with a PCL6 or UPD printer driver.
  • Adobe PDF files can sometimes be very complex. Go to this document if printing PDF files is slow or resulting in memory out messages: HP LaserJet - Print job is slow or hangs in the print queue when printing Adobe PDF files (ID: emr_na-c04071740)
  • If the printer is connected via a network, try sending the file connected by USB cable only. This will eliminate possible network issues that are taking printer memory.
  • Appendix A
    Memory Allocation Utilities or jobs that you download to the product sometimes include resources (for example, fonts, macros, or patterns). Resources that are internally marked as permanent remain in the product memory until you turn the product off.
    Use the following guidelines if you use the page description language (PDL) ability to mark resources as permanent. For technical details, see an appropriate PDL reference for PCL or PS.
    • Mark resources as permanent only when it is absolutely necessary that they remain in memory while the product is turned on.
    • Send permanent resources to the product only at the beginning of a print job and not while the product is printing.
    NOTE: Overusing permanent resources or downloading them while the product is printing might affect product performance or the ability to print complex pages.

    Prints extra blank page for every one page of printed material

    Ok, I too have HP Photosmart 7280 and it was spit'g out a blank page after each print page.
    I went into the Control Panel/Printers - Right click on the HP Photosmart 7200 series icon and choose delete. Don't worry...just delete it.
    Right above (Vista) click on Add a Printer - it's going to ask you if you want to add a local printer which is connected via USB connection or if you are set up wireless then choose Network
    It will find your printer click on the printer hit next - then this is the most important step
    It will ask you to find the manufacturer it shows Hewlett-Packard and underneath it shows HP - Do not click on HP - you'll have the same problem with that driver - choose Hewlett-Packard and find this driver HP Photosmart C7200 series Version [3/23/07]
    Hopefully they are all digitally signed with this information.
    Click on that driver and click next - then click on replace the current driver and click next.
    Print a test page and problem should be solved. Hope it helped!

    Hp 670c deskjet will not print

    Dear Sir,

    As soon as you Plugin the Ink Cartridges an alignment page should print. When you install a printer to a computer the Test page should come out. If nothing is happening then printer is faulty. If Printer is fit and fine then try using another computer. If nothing works out please let me know.

    Best Regards.
