Copy memory on HP L7580

When I copy a document, this printer runs out of memory after processing only five pages. But it seems to have no memory problems when I fax lengthy documents. Any ideas how to address this problem?

Re: copy memory on HP L7580

Sounds like you need to change your virtual memory settings or buy more RAM.
Here is how to change the settings:
I am assuming you use WINXP

  1. Click Start , right-click My Computer , and then click Properties .
  2. Click the Advanced tab.
  3. In the Performance section, click Settings .
  4. Click the Advanced tab.
  5. In the Virtual memory section, click Change . Both the Initial and Maximum settings should be less than the reported Space available on the hard disk drive. The Initial size setting for the virtual memory settings should be about 200 MB, and should be higher than or equal to the recommended paging file size shown in the lower section of the dialog box. When you set the initial size, Windows reserves on the hard disk drive the amount of space you designated for virtual memory. The maximum amount allowable can be anything above the Initial size setting, but it should be at least twice the Initial size setting, as shown in Figure 2. Figure 2: The Windows XP Virtual Memory settings c00174885.gif
  6. Based on the information above, make any necessary changes to the Initial size and Maximum size settings.
  7. Click Set , and then click OK .

My officejet pro 8500A prints black vertical lines down the page when I make a copy. I have cleaned and aligned the printheads. What else can I do?

Happened with me too. Turned out to be a small sticky smudge on the ADF glass. That is the smaller glass scan area to the left of the large glass scanning area.
When using the ADF to scan or copy, make sure the smaller glass area is clean along with the rollers.

I have network printer with scanner. Model is hp officejet pro L7580 printer. I installed a printer sucessfully but I want to use printer scanner. So how to install scanner & use it?

In order to install your scanner, you need to print a test page. As you need to align the cartridges, you also need to align your scanner. See the printed alignment page for directions on how to complete the alignment process. Basically, all you have to do is put the test page in the scanner and press scan.

I have pictures on memory card that is now in my printer. how do i get them to my computer? this is a HP Officejet Pro L7580.

I take it your printer's memory card drives are not showing up as individual drive letters under My Computer? If not, you might need to reinstall the printer drivers, here:

Once the memory card drives show up in My Computer, it's just a matter of dragging and dropping from one of the memory card drives to your My Documents folder
