HP LaserJet4 When we print to our HP LaserJet4, every other page is blank. No info is missing. It's like the blank page is in there as a spacer. How do I stop this waste?

Re: HP LaserJet4

In the printer driver, make sure you have the paper sizes set correctly  etc. Go over all the basics first.

Make sure that the options set under the "Device Settings" and "Advanced" tabs are relevant to your media and page sizes.

The chances are a setting in the driver has been changed by mistake.

I have an HP LaserJet4 and I'm suddenly (as of last evening) getting a 41.3 error code followed by a 13 Paper Jam. I clear the jam, warming up, blank page is ejected, I put the printer back on line,...

41.3 - points to a miss match in the paper tray.
First -
Pull out your paper trays, take the paper out and confirm the guide in the back is set to the correct position. (The little mechanism on the tray which allows you to use different paper types, example letter to A4).

Second -
The other which may have happened it the paper handling was mis-configured on the machine:
- Press the Menu Button on the machine.
- Using the + and - button go to the Printing Menu.
- Select Paper confirm that the paper size is correct for the trays within the machine.
Third -
- Depending on the document you are attempting to print make sure the document type is either adjusted to the type of paper your using or to load the correct paper into the machine. I seen where people send you a legal document and your attempting to print it on letter.
Fourth -
It could be a driver related issue, 98% of the time this is not the case. If all fails above, then attempt this.
Let me know if this helps!
Lastly it could be a driver related issue, however if more than 1 person uses it don't count on it.

I have an HP C7280 AIO printer. Everytime I print, it always form feeds a blank page bewteen each printed page (print page 1, form feed a blank page, print page 2, form feed a blank page, and so on).

Generally, there are printer set up programs that will let you chose to put a blank sheet or to not do that. If you have a disk or manual, look for the set up utility and go thru the tabs to find paper handling or something similar to that. There should be a check box you can clear to stop the blank page.

I hope that this information was helpful. Have a great day.

Blank pages from Word

That just means you put your spacer onto another page. You may need to back space until you reach you last word of your document.

Printer is dark

Go to Start > printers and faxes> right click on the laserjet4 icon>
properties > click on printing preferences on the first page > click advance on the next page > under Graphics, you will see print quality. Change it to either 600x600 or 1200x1200. The higher the number, the darker the print.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

HP Laserjet 3050 blank print

Have you tried a new toner cartridge? Usually blank pages are due to a missing bias voltage to, or in the cartridge.

Printer only prints half a page

this is a driver problem, try reinstalling the printer with the laserjet4 driver which is a universal PCL driver, this should solve the problem. If not, there is also a blank HP Laserjet driver

HP 6210 using double paper?

Try cleaning the rollers (especially in the back door). It stopped mine from jamming. Hope it will stop the double paper thing!
