Printer prints more copies than indicated. Driver reinstalled multiple times.

I purchased my Gateway W350A at the same time that I purchased an HP Photosmart C6380 All-in-One printer. HP tech support has been unable to remedy a continuing, but sporadic problem. The printer will print more copies of a document than indicated. Have you had any problems with Gateway W350A with Windows Vista Home Premium with SP1 and HP C6380? Any suggestions or information would be helpful.

I don't know if this will help but I have had similar problems. I would notice that one or two particular programs would print more than one copy and others were just fine. Try checking the preferences on the actual programs. Some programs retain their last qty request and don't change unless you change it. For instance, you request a program to give you two copies of a particular document and everything works fine. Then a day later you are in the same program and need only one copy of a document and you get two instead. This is because there is something set in the program or the preferences of your printing device that causes it to retain the last requested quantity for printing. Next time you print check the print dialog box and see how many copies it is showing will be printed. Hope this helps.

Ink system failure...Oxc19a0023

Call 1-800-HP-Invent. They will walk you through a procedure to reset the ink system. You'll need to get a senior tech to do it, and it's a 50/50 shot as to whether it'll fix it.
You may have to pay for this service if the unit is out of warranty.
HP will usually take your word as to purchase date initially, so if it's out of warranty, LIE...just be aware that they will only believe you once and you will have to provide proof of purchase to get any further service!

Photo black ink runs out b4 black on HP Photosmart C6380 printer

The black ink cartridge is larger than the photo black cartridge and black is used in photos to make the darker colors. Black text takes much less ink per page.

I'm getting "ink system failure" message on my 1-yr-old hp photosmart c6380. HP tech support tells me this is a critical failure and I should upgrade to another printer. D I have any other options?


HP just wants to sell another printer. The "ink system failure" error is caused by air in the ink feed tubes. This happens when the ink in the cartridges goes run all the way out or you use poor quality refilled cartridges. In both cases the printer tries to pump ink but gets air instead. We have a step by step guide to do a purge on the ink lines and reset the system posted on our web site at: look in the printer repair pages and the HP. In less than 10 minutes you should be back printing again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Printer prints more copies than indicated. Driver reinstalled multiple times. Problem is not that is follows previous print number.

The printer has performed correctly for two days now - first consecutive days since purchase 6 months ago. I did not do or change anything - have no idea why it is printing the correct number of copies now. I am not confident that this will be longlasting, however.
