Question about HP DeskJet 3325 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My hp deskjet 3550 does not print

When I click the print icon, another window would appear with the heading PRINT TO FILE. I tried to enter the filename of the document I am supposed to print on the space provided for but it still doesn't print. I want to get rid of the PRINT TO FILE window that keeps on popping out everytime I click the print icon and just go directly printing the document.

Unistall the printer(software) then let Windows reinstall the printer, only you have the drivers downloaded(from website link below) and tell it , the computer, where to find them, when asked.

My HP 3550 deskjet will simply not print. It goes through the motions and seems to be printing --but the page is blank or very faint. I have already cleaned and re-calibrated the printer


Check ink-levels -- no ink means no printing.
Run a few more "print-head-cleaning" cycles -- clogged ink-jets cannot spray ink onto the paper.

Hi,

Please follow the below given instructions to resolve the issue.

Please click on Start >> Programs >> HP >> HP Director.

Click on Settings >> Print Settings >> Printer Settings.

Click on Quality Tab at top of Printer Settings Window >> Set the Paper type as " Plain Paper " .

Click on Layout Tab at top of Printer Settings Window > Set the Paper size that you are using >> Click on Apply and then on OK.

Try Printing, that should resolve the issue that you are experiencing with.

If the issue still persists, try installing alternate drivers by following the below given instructions.

Installing the Alternate drivers:

1. Right click on My Computer, select Explore and then goto Control Panel, and then select Printer and Faxes.
2. Double-click the Add Printer icon. Click Next.
3. When prompted, choose Local, and then click Next.
4. In the Manufacturers list, choose HP.
5. In the Printer list, choose the HP Deskjet 870C printer, and then click Next.
6. Choose the port as parallel port, and then click Next.
7. The printer name should be listed as HP Deskjet 870C Printer.
8. Click No when the "Do you want your Windows based programs to use this printer as your default printer?" message appears. Then click Next.
9. Click No when the "Would you like to print a test page (recommended)" message appears. Then, click Finish.

Configure the alternate printer driver
1. Right-click the HP Deskjet 870C printer icon placed in the Printers window.
2. Select the Properties menu item.
3. Select the Details or Ports tab.
4. Select the DOT4_00x (where the "x" represents any digit) port from the Print to the Following Port list.
NOTE: The All-in-One model number should appear as part of the port destination.
5. Leave the printer identified as HP Deskjet 870C printer, and click the Apply button.
6. Close the Printer Properties window.


If Deskjet 870c is not listed, you may even try with Deskjet 990c or 550c

Hope that above information will work.
