Re: HP Photosmart 2575 xi

You need to mention is the half print occurring during a print out/scan /photocopy? Follow these steps to try and resolve the issue: Step one: Reset the printer Unplug the all-in-one USB cable from the computer. Verify the computer and the all-in-one have a three-prong power cord that connects to the power outlet. Unplug the all-in-one power cord from any power strips or surge protectors, and plug it directly into a wall outlet. Make a copy or scan, and see if the issue is resolved. If not, proceed to the next step. NOTE: If the scanner bulb is not lit during a copy or scan, the product needs service. Step two: Clean the glass and scanner backing Turn off the all-in-one. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Unplug the power cord from the back of the all-in-one. Raise the lid. Clean the glass with a soft dry cloth, or a sponge slightly moistened with non-abrasive glass cleaner or water. CAUTION: Do not use abrasives, acetone, benzene, or carbon tetrachloride on the glass; they can damage it. Do not place or spray liquid directly on the glass; the liquid might seep under the glass and damage the device. Dry the glass with a chamois, cellulose sponge or soft cotton cloth to prevent spotting. Clean the white scanner backing with a soft dry cloth or sponge slightly moistened with water, and allow it to dry. Step three: Try a blank copy Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet. Plug the power cord into the all-in-one. Turn the power on. Close the lid; do not place any paper on the glass. Load paper in the paper tray. Do either of the following: Press Start Copy Black to start a black-and-white copy job. Press Start Copy Color to start a color copy job. If the output is a full/half-black page, or has vertical black lines, the product needs service. Step four: Service the product If you have completed all of the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service your product.

Photosmart 2575 printer is offline - won't print

Hey jonboy - You do not want to delete it. It is automatically installed with Vista. In simple terms, you know when you go to print something and it asks you questions like print all pages, print page 1, etc? Well XPS basically is there for so when you go to print, you have the option of printing to a file instead of paper. You've always had that option ( whether or not you knew it) but this is just a new way of doing it and that's why it's listed under printers. It's sort of like a virtual printer. I'll say no more about that and just hope you understood what I said. As far as the other printer, it's already selected as default, go back in where you found the printer status, right click on your Photosmart and click on use online. That should do the trick.
I hope you understood this stuff. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you still have a problem, DON'T RATE it yet just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.
