My windows 8.1 computer printing menu(page setup) doesn't ask me the number of copies I want and my monochrome laser printer doesn't stop printing.how can this be corrected ? please answer and/or corr


The setting for number of pages usually can be set from within the printers software. Or when you go to print check Print Preview and try setting it from there. Normally a printer wont print more pages than the amount you are attempting to print.

IE 8 When I try to print or print preview in ie 8 a displayed web page, I get a blank page with the URL and page number at the top and bottom. While this problem does not occur with Mozilla


Hi,

This occurs if the page takes a long time to generate what it will print and if you have bad internet connection will make it take longer. Go to print preview of any page go away for a few minutes and then check if it has generated an image.

Thanks.

When I tell the PC to print it accepts the message, the little printer shows in the task bar and then it dissappears...no response from printer at all. I have checked the cords & rebooted my PC but...


I have this problem with my HP as well. Turn your printer off for a few minutes then back on. Try printing again, if the same thing happens you will need to uninstall the printer software and reinstall it. You will do this by going to start, control panel, change or remove programs and a list will generate. In this list look for your hp printer to be listed, highlight it and click remove. Once it is removed you will need to reinstall, do this by either placing your cd in and following the steps or if you dont have your cd, log onto www.hp.com and click drivers and downloads, select your model or if your printer is plugged in it will auto detect for you. download and install and attempt to print again, this should work.

Document is blank when print spooling and prints only blank pages. even test page printed is blank


I can only think its a problem with the ink cartridges.
Is it a new printer?
Have you taken the tabs off the ink cartridges?
Does it need a head clean?

When we go to print, and view the print preveiw the print content is not shown, and does not print. All that is printed is the information from the computer (eg. page 1 of 1), but none of the documents.


Well, thanks for the info, I still need more info, please let me know the Browser's name (Internet explorer or Firefox or etc..etc..). Also please include the Name/Make of your printer. I can give you the instructions few tips here, but I don't want you to waste your time and also mine. Also, the print settings/Print preferences varies from Printer to Printer. Thanks and awaiting.

The printer cannot recognize the ink


What should I do if the printer will not recognize the cartridge after refilling?
  • Turn on the printer and remove both cartridges
  • Place both cartridges in front of you so that you can see the contact foil, with the nozzles facing downwards
  • With adhesive tape, cover the FOUR upper contact points on the far left contact column of both cartridges
  • Reinsert the two cartridges and close the cover
  • Open the cover again after 2 or 3 seconds
  • Wait until the printer gives you the cartridge carriage (If there seems to be a problem with either of the cartridges, ignore it)
  • Open the cover and remove the two cartridges
  • Place both cartridges in front of you so that you can see the contact foil, with the nozzles facing downwards
  • Remove the adhesive tape
  • Clean the contacts, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover.
  • Most imp.
    If you refill your cartridges more then 3 times,then it is expired and that's why it is not displayed in your printer.For this,you have to go for ma new cartridge.
    or some these steps
  • Try below steps.May be it will helpful.

    1. I used a Q-tip with Isopropyl Alcohol and cleaned the gold contacts on both the cartridge and the mating contacts in the printer.

    2. Then from the Setup Menu, I found a menu called Tools. From there I ran "Align Print Cartridges".

    3. From the same menu I also ran "Clean Print Cartridges"
    4. I then ran a few test prints by going into the Setup Menu and then choosing "Print Report" and then selecting "Self-Test Report". It prints grid patterns in black & white as well as magenta, yellow and blue. The black grid pattern had some missing lines until I printed this report a few times.

    5. I made a few photocopies and now the printouts no longer have large stripes of missing ink as it did in the earlier steps.

Single page email prints multiple pages


Firstly in one PC reload the OS and other necessary softwares and try printing an email. If u get the same results, then check the printing options both on the printer side and the outlook print properties. Hopefully this wont be needed because when you reinstall the OS as a clean install it should print properly....sodeep
