Hi,
If you go to your Printer properties advanced tab,
or preferences tab, toolbox where ever in your o/s,
main page, paper type, click the little down arrow,
choose from many sizes, at the bottom user defined size, choose your own sizes.

Hope this helps
Regards.

HP842C continues to print with nothing on the paper but a line across the top of letters and numbers. The orange light will not go off. There was a paper jam which I removed then paper continued going...


Check your Catridges, they might be dried up if new, or empty, Remove them shake them to feel a presence of ink or tap them on a piece of paper to verify if ink will comeout if not then they are empty and need to be replaced they they have a bit of ink you need to shake and try printing again if this persists change the catridges, also make sure that the Printer is Clean, verify the Catridge Carrier for any dry ink deposits.

If printer runs out of paper and you refill starts


The continuous printing issue can be fixed following this link

Regarding Gibberish printing or say garbage printing, If the above utility does not fix this issue, probably the printer drivers are corrupted, and you may have to uninstall the printer software from your pc and download and reinstall the latest drivers. this link below will let you choose the operating system of your PC and download the drivers

I ask this piece of junk to print an existing picture from "My Pictures", put in HP Premium Plus photo paper, chose 5 x 7 and it tells me that the paper doesn't match. WTF???


Check that the photo size you chose in the printing software is set to 5 x 7 and that the paper size is compatible to print a 5 x 7 or smaller photo, and that the correct actual paper size has also been selected.

My 842C Deskjet had a paper jam and even though I pulled out the paper, The bottom red light continues to flash.


Hi,

Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry. Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print. Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job. Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

HP Deskjet 5150 print is too small


Printers try to fit web pages on a single sheet of paper. If you configure the printer, in the print dialog, not to shrink images and text to fit the paper, it will print on multiple sheets of paper, but the correct size for the images and text.

In a Word document, it depends on what font size you have selected. Most people would rather have the web page print on a single sheet, with smaller images and text than were on the monitor; than tape together multiple sheets for 100% size printout.

Ink system failure Oxc19a0031 I have an HP842C. The ink cartridges appear to be full, and in fact I have changed them for new ones, but I barely get a print, It is sometimes enough to make out (barely)...


Clean the cartridges.

Go to Printers/Faxes from your START Menu
Select the printer
Select Set Printer Properties
Select the Services Tab
Clean them - I had to do it 5 times and take out the black cartridge and shake it really good until ink started coming out and clean it again. I primed 3 times.

Worked for me.
