Re: Printer issue

I can only suggest that you should use genuine HP ink carts. Try all new carts and realign again. Hopefully it is under warranty. HP is good at exchanging.

My printer is printing blank pages

I used to have one of these printers.

1. Check the ink levels.
2. Try printing on DVD.

The C309 has a black photo cartridge.

Text prints from the regular black cartridge and pictures print from the photo black cartridge.

THe best way to tell if by checking first the ink levels and replace cartridge if necessary.

One thing you can do to check if the printer is printing is by adjusting on the Printer Setttings and printing on one color.

To do this you need to choose the color from a circular palette .

Another way is to use Word or any other processor and change the font color to blue and print it.

Hope it helps.

Trying to print from microsoft word . Keeps printing in black. Color cartriges 75% full. What am I doing wrong?

  • Go through the Print menu (from Microsoft Word)
  • On the Print Dialog screen, select Properties
  • Click on the Color Tab
  • Make sure Color button is selected (not Black or Grayscale)
  • Press OK
When color is selected, the printer will print Black as well.
If Black is selected. the printer will not print color.
Hope this will work for you.

My printer will not print any documents, it does print a test page, when I select print the paper is ejected. I have re installed the software.

Try to print a self test page from the printer directly using the below steps....
  1. Make sure the printer is loaded with plain, white paper. Remove any special or colored paper.
  2. Press Setup on the front panel of the product.
  3. Press 1 , to select Print Report , then 5 , to select Self Test .After you have the report printed, check for 4 horizontal color bars in that report, the first color should be the the black one, if the black one is missing, issue seems to be with black cartridge, that may be the reason the printer spits out blank paper, try to replace the black cartridge and then copy if it copies or not.

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer

Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

Empty ms word printout

Hi, You can try: 1. go to Start, Printer and Faxes, right click on your 3745, click on Properties, Printing Preference; 2. Check to see if you have any Advanced tab or button; 3. Check if you can set the printer to text only; 4. Check if you can set the printer to use black ink only. 5. In MS Word, verify through the use of Print Preview that your document is as you would want to be printed; 6. In some instances you may have to set manually text color in MS Word. While your document is open, click Ctrl + A to select all, then choose font color to "Black". Alternately, in your MS Word, you can click on "Format", "Font", "Font Color" set to "Black" rather than "Automatic" and set this as the "Default" setting. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

I used some less expensive generic ink cartridges on my RX500 and had a similar experience with the black. If you're already using the Epson brand, done the head cleaning, realignment and nozzel checks, I'm not much help. Try Epson's support at their web site.
