Why does HP Deskjet 940c only print left side of a selection from a web page?

A printer prints almost anything that is shown in a computer screen and it depend on what you're trying to print. If you want to print contents from a webpage, you have two options to chose from. The first is of course the contents in the webpage that you want printed and the second option is to print the whole webpage. If you want to print only the contents in a web page, e.g. an article or photo, you have to highlight the article or photo first then right-click and select 'Print...'. It should print the article or photo only. But if you want to print the whole webpage, chances are that it only prints the 'skeleton' of the webpage and not the contents, hence the reason you have only the left part of the webpage printed. However, if you highlight the whole webpage and then right-click and select 'Print...' I am sure you will have the whole webpage printed. Cheers.

Check the settings in Windows Print Manager.

Make sure that the paper quality matches what is in the printer. If set to glossy, minimal ink is deposited on the page. Also, check the print quality - draft quality provides a minimal amount of ink as well.

My printer says its printing but is only printing out a blank page. why?

Hi fizzy81
Most of the software has a PrintView facility. Select the Printview and see there is something on the Page displayed. If nothing, there is nothing wrong with the printer. It is possible you are trying to print a selection without actually selecting anything. I am assuming that you have ink in the cartridge.
Also, go to another program, or a webpage and try to print from there. This is to find out whether something is wrong with the printer,.

Anytime you try and print a webpage it locks up the print job and the user can not delete the job, I have to reset the print spool on the server then it will delete. Only does this with web pages internal...

Chances are it's adobe-based web pages. There's a known problem with coding discrepancies on Adobe items imbedded in webpages being directly printed.

If you can save the file to a full .pdf or maybe convert it to a .doc before trying to print it might do the trick. If not, best to steer clear of the problem webpage altogether.

Continuous garbage text when connected to pc

In reading this HP forum I have found many other LaserJet 1100 owners who are trying to do the same thing as you.

Many of them recommend various cable solutions from Sewell. When you contact Sewell, make sure to specify your printer model, and ask what specific cables and/or adapters you need to make it work vis USB. They sound quite knowledgeable, and seem to have dealth with this before.

Continuous garbage text when connected to pc

Hello, It sounds as if the printer is receiving PostScript and that's a language it can't understand. On your PC (assuming Windows operating system), get properties on the printer and look for a driver name. Most drivers that are PostScript have "PS" in the name. If your driver name has PS as part of the name, or if the driver does not correctly describe the printer, change the driver to match the printer. If you have any troubles doing this, include the version of Windows (or other OS) and we'll be able to provide step-by-step instructions.
