    Printer always feeds three sheets with code printed at the top on startup. I have always assumed that it was caused by my not disconnecting the printer when I re-installed the software in the PC.

Used HP's chat, they helped walk me through it. NO CHARGE! You push the 'on' button for 45 seconds after you disconnect all the cables. Plug in the power cable only. Then print a test page. If that works, plug in the USB. Should fix the problem. I'd recommend working with HP, as they can check the internals on your machine while you chat with them.

Printer printing blured images and text. It looks as if the printer prints a line then about 1/8 to 1/16 if an inch it prints the same line again.

Printing from e-mail


The problem you are having is caused because you are printing from a web based email and just clicking print prints the email, the frame and all the advertising on the page.

to avoid this try the following:

1. Doubleclick the email to open it, not just use a preview pane.
2. Highlight just the text that you want to print. (You can click the cursor at the beginning of the text, hold down the CNTL Key and then press down arrow till all lines of text you want are highlighted)
3. Click FILE, PRINT on the browser menu (DO NOT CLICK THE PRINT ICON)
4. A Print window should appear, in the PRINT RANGE section, click SELECTION, then click OK. At this time, only the text you selected should print.

Every other line prints only bottom half of text.


I have a psc 2355 printer which only prints half of text then the next lines are ok then it repeats only printing half text. I removed my ink cartridge and wiped the ink ports with a tissue heavily moisten with water. Repeated this several times and then gently dried with a tissue. The problem was fixed!!
