Question about HP LaserJet 4si Printer

Won's print pdf files

If printing a regular text file, I have no issues. However, in trying to print a pdf file that has a picture on it, the entire page comes out pitch black. Any ideas?

    Well, I tried all that, and nothing. Then I noticed that the entire time, I had "Print color as black" selected. I hadn't payed attention as the page was writing with black outline sketches around it. I tried printing with that deselected and it printed fine.

Trouble with the HP Laserjet printed output may be solved by using the following settings (or similarly named ones): "Use raster Graphics" (instead of "Use vector graphics"). This may fix the problem of "reversed" text (white on black background) not printing, as well as other problems. "Download TrueType Fonts as bitmap soft fonts" (select "bitmap" instead of "outline" or "graphics"). This may remove the overlapping of text on the printed document. "Graphics dithering" select "coarse" or "fine" (instead of "none"). This selection may improve the quality of images contained in the document. You can find all these settings in your printer properties. Go to File, Print, click Preferences, in Printing Preferences, click one by one all the top options, and change one of the top solutions, one at the time, checking your printing output. Always check if you have the latest version of Adobe Reader Program. If not download the latest version from Adobe, it's free. Is this the first time that you have the problem? or with the same printer (HP 4si), did you were able to print PDF files in the past?

How to solve the problem of undesired changing size after printing only in PDF files?


You should see the PDF as a picture. Nothing can be changed (unless you have permission)
Most of the time when starting the print job, the menu gives you some options to educe the size of the page or print to fit the page in the printer.
I hope this helps?

Inconsistent printing


In the printer's dialogue find the print pages number. Print page from/to and select 20 pages chunks. In effect print only part of the document at a time. Add all chunks together in one pile. Work around I know, but it works.

When i try to print either on firefox or google chrome the selection option doesn't come on, so i have to print all the page which isnt what i want.. On google chrome it only prints one line of 25 lines ?...


The easiest way around this is not to try and print directly from a web page, but to copy and paste the part of the document you want into a text editor ( ie Notepad ) and print it from there.

Simply highlight the text you want to copy. Right click 'copy', open your Notepad document and right click 'paste'. Then go up to File and 'print'. You could save even more ink by just saving the Notepad document as a file into My Docs and keeping it on your pc... it's always there if you then need to make a hard copy ( but remember to back up your files to dc or dvd regularly )

Hp psc 1510 wont print some pdf files (blank pages come out)


I've run across this a few times. And its always the pdf you really wanted not the one you just finished printing (Sound familiar? ;-])

Assuming the pdf is not corrupted then you can be missing a font which you fix by telling it to use one you have. Or if that's not it try printing it in greyscale only. I have had issues with printing color pdfs that work when you print them black and white.

Unable to print text documents


Some times image/picture files are very big files. That big size, in mega-bytes, some times conflicts with your amount of available memory. It could effect the print que or ram. Try running the file through a picture editing program edit the files then rename and save them. You can check the file size prior and then after you run the file through the program. If the file size is lowered it should print.

Does not print pdf files


It sounds like it is a printer memory issue. That printer comes with just 64MB of memory and PDF files are complicated for most printers. Try printing a few pages at a time for that PDF file and see if that works. If so than it is a memory issue.
