The printer spits out pages at random all day long,how do I stop this? as the pages may only have one or two letters on a page and it's costing a fortune in paper

    Has it always done this or is it just recently? and if so have you made any changes to its software? such as a recent driver update?

Do the following steps:

Go to control panel>>Printers and delete printer cue.

Replace data cable.

Reinstall printer software.

If the printer keeps having the same problem after the steps above, then the printer control board is faulty, and the printer must be repaired or replaced.

    Then it is probably the software or the cable, try replacing cable , and then reinstall software.

    Also test the printer on a different computer to understand if this can be a system problem.

    Regards.

I am using a hp laserjet 2420n printer and i have been trying to print on both sides of the sheet but i cant


If your printer does not have a duplex unit then the printercannot print double sided pages automatically.
You can print double sided pages but you have to do it one page at a time.

Is HP Laser Jet 2420n


Duplex on this printer is manual, that means that you will have to re-insert the paper by yourself.

This if you have the 2420n, the 2420dn instead is the duplex model.

Here specifications, look where it says duplex, 2420n had only manual duplex (the printer wait for you to re-insert page).

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer


Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J
