Hi Frances,

You should check your Printing Preferences and see if the culprit is there.
Go to start -> Control Panel -> Printer and Faxes.
Right-click on the Photosmart Printer and choose Printing Preferences.
Go through the tabs and look at the options. I don't know which software version you are using, but in the newer one there is a tab called Basics, where you can set the general amount of copies made.Check if Copy Count is set to 1.

If you get to the Properties Window this way (or also by double-clicking the HP Digital Image Monitor in the task bar, -> Settings -> Print Settings -> Print Settings), you can set your general printing properties which are used as a standard: Print Quality, Color, Papersize, etc. These will be used as a standard for all applications, but can be changed individually.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

My xerox 6015 will print documents that I have previously printed even tho I am not requesting it to be printed. Nothing is in the print queue to cancel. what is wrong with it?


I assuming you mean you get 2 prints when you only asked for one. Looks like the driver default settings are set to 2 copies.
If you can use the copy facility and print one copy that sort of eliminates the printer. The problem must be further up stream towards the computer sending the print.
You also. If he like to remove the print driver and reinstall it, the default must always be set to 1 copy.

My printer prints multiple pages even though number of copies in setting shows 1


Try looking here: open your printers fax folder. Your printer should be listed here, right click on it and select properties. Now click on the advance tab. There should be a printer defaults button, click on it. Make sure your copies number is set to 1. Then click ok on each window and close.

Hope this helps

Canon Image Runner 7200 prints twice instead of once. When I ask for two copies I get four copies.


If you are using Windows, you will want to check the drivers of the printer to make sure you are not selected on 2 copies.

Go to Control Panel\Printers and faxes
Right click on the printer driver and select "printing preferences".
Make sure the "Copies" is set to 1.

You can also try a wtest page by going to "properties" and select "print test page".

Kyocera 3900 dn, is there a way to speed it up?


1.install the latest print driver; see if the rip/spool time is long or the printing time is long. The rip time depends by your computer (!) and the print driver (disable the collate option when printing multiple copies of 1 page = on the printer you should see 1/5 spit a page then 2/5 and spit another page for 5 copies of same page. If you see processing the spit the page then processing and spit the page means your computer is sending 5 times the same page instead of sending once and ask for 5 copies !!! )
2.use network connection instead the USB.
3.expand the printer memory
4.switch the printer from PCL to KPDL or Auto when printing pdf files.

My hp 1320 prints multiple copies instead of one copy


Go to "printers and faxes."
Right click on your printer and select "Printing preferences."
Select "Advanced" tab
Double click "paper output"
If "Copy count=2" then change to 1 and apply
IF IT ALREADY IS SET TO 1 THEN:
Set "copy count=2" then APPLY
Repeat the above and now set "copy count=1"

The process of setting and resetting the copy count fixed my issues.

Multiple copies


Look for a small "Collate" box and make sure it is checked. That way it will print each set in order.

My hp 1320 prints only one copy


Windows may have eaten its baby again- that is, the driver for that printer.
Open the Control Panel, then Printers and Faxes, delete any listing for that model of printer, make sure the printer is on and connected, then reboot your system. This will force Win to 'find' the printer and install an uncorrupted driver for it.
