Question about HP DeskJet 842c InkJet Printer

2 Answers

I get blank pages when printing. Sometimes all pages are blank, sometimes first and last page print, with blank middle pages.

When printing, printer either spits out all blank pages, or all middle pages are blank (2-4 of 5 pages are blank, first and last print ok sometimes)

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled, but unfortunately it didn't resolve the problem.



    I have checked all the settings, and they appear normal.

    The printer is set as default.

    It is not just for one program, it won't print in Word, or Explorer.

    I tried resaving my Normal.dot, and that didn't work either.



    Ugh!!! Thanks for trying!

1. Try cleaning or replacing your laser scanner mirrors.
2. Make sure that your transfer roller is seated properly.
3.Update your printer driver.
4.You might have failing power supply, make sure that the drum ground spring is connected to the engine controller board properly. You can also replace your high voltage power supply.

Hope this helps.

When i ask to print all (pages), only the last page gets printed. I have to select and print each page separately to print out whole documents. I'm printing from an Hp using windows Vista 6.0. This...


some printers collate pages, which means they print from the last page to the first page. so that when you pick up the pages from the finished printing tray they are in order.

if you say it stops after the first page, there are a few possible reasons for this.
either you closed the application you were printing from before you finished printing (which sometimes cancels the printing job)
or the computer decided it wanted to cancel the printing on its own, this can happen if the printer has sometimes an error, this error or cause could be a lag between the data transfer to the printer.

try printing without collating the pages, while keeping the application/document open.

and make sure you have the latest drivers.

My HP Photosmart printer was printing just fine until I had to change ink cartridges. Now it won't print anything, it just spits out a blank page.


Sometimes your printer print blanks pages, if your printer is out of ink. You can check the quantity of ink in the status of the printer. Sometimes, your printer displays messages if it is out of ink. So if you are facing such issues, you need to refill the ink in your printer. Communication problem with the printer and computer is also a reason for printing blank pages.

Printer prints blank page


Is this a brand new printer? What is the make and model of your printer? Are the ink cartridges brand new? Sometimes when the printer driver becomes corrupted it will print out blank page (page after page) I would reinstall the printer driver that goes to your printer and then restart your computer and try to print a new page.

Ricoh CL3500N - not printing all characters on the page


It might be a print driver problem. I think there several different drivers. Go to Ricoh-usa.com and download all the drivers for the operating system you are using and try them. If there is a rpcs driver that might be your best bet.
