Question about HP DeskJet 5150 InkJet Printer

Multiple probs w/ HP 5150

I don't really know what's going on with this printer, but all of a sudden it's been having a number of problems lately.

1. Printer keeps re-installing: I use a Mac and everytime I select Print, the printer shows that the HP 5150 printer has added itself again. My printer list looks something like "HP 5100" followed by "HP 5100-1" and then "HP 5100-2".

2. Slow printing: When I do manage to print, it prints exceedingly slow, even when I've selected for it to print fast.

3. Does not print black: Coupled with the snail paced printing is that it only prints from the colour cartridge even though I've selected for it to print in "grayscale". I've replaced the black ink cartridges because I thought they were out of ink, but that doesn't seem to help.

Many thanks to anyone who might have suggestions.

HP Deskjet 5150 print is too small


Printers try to fit web pages on a single sheet of paper. If you configure the printer, in the print dialog, not to shrink images and text to fit the paper, it will print on multiple sheets of paper, but the correct size for the images and text.

In a Word document, it depends on what font size you have selected. Most people would rather have the web page print on a single sheet, with smaller images and text than were on the monitor; than tape together multiple sheets for 100% size printout.

Problem with my printer


Go to www.hp.com and click on their "Software & driver downloads" link. Under "select a task and enter a product name and number", pick "download driver and software". In the "for product" box, enter "5150". In the results page, click the "HP Deskjet 5150 Color Inkjet Printer" link. Pick your operating system. After that, you'll reach the driver download page. You have a choice of "full feature" or "basic feature" drivers. Either one will work, but I prefer the "full feature" driver.
