Problems with regular printouts

I have this receipt printer set up as my default printer in Windows XP pro.  It's works great untill you try to print a regular document, web page, pdf, etc.  it prints those out receipt sized on letter sized paper.  This doesn't happen with my lexmark printer.  Just my HP's.

Re: problems with regular printouts

That's been the work around. open the print window, select the Lexmark printer then select the HP printer and it works. but you know what happens when your end-users have to click more than once...not acceptable...I'm still working on this issue myself.

You have to change the printer sittings before you print.

My HP Officejet Pro K8600 prints crooked, how do I fix that?

is the paper going thrugh crooked?
make sure the paper is in the tray and the guides are night and straight.
if that is ok, look for something that makes the paper turn crooked by hitting it, such as a lost scrap of paper or a paperclip where it does not belong.

The Print Diagnostic Utility diagnoses and resolves common printing problems and communication problems, including:

If you prefer, you can skip this information and go directly to downloading the tool .

  • Connectivity :
    • USB: Ensures that the USB connection from your computer to the HP product is working correctly.
    • Network: Ensures that the network connection between your computer and your network is working correctly. If the tool detects a network connectivity problem, you will be prompted to run the HP Network Diagnostic Utility for better results.
  • Spooler : Automatically restarts the print spooler, which sends print jobs from the computer to the product, if it has been stopped.
  • Online status : Checks if the product has been paused or set to offline, and then sets the status back to online if necessary.
  • Device manager : Checks for problems in Device Manager that would prevent printing.
  • Print queue : Checks for and clears pending print jobs in the print queue (a log of print jobs waiting to print).
  • Port : Checks the port settings for the HP product.
  • Driver : Checks for alternate-driver settings.
  • Conflicts : Checks for conflicts with other drivers, such as other printer brands.
  • Default printer : Checks the default printer setting and prompts to select the HP product as default (optional).

I have a zebra lb2844 label printer. Does anyone know if it can be used as a receipt printer instead? I am looking for a generic driver that may work as the supplied one wants a label size. (I want to...

Normally this printer s meant to print labels.
To have them work as line printers there is only one thing to do. Start the printer while pressing on the button. When it starts feedingthe paper release the button. After printing the configuration it will act as a line printer. But the best way to use it as a receipt printer is to create a program which will send the information to the printer through a windows driver if your software can do that

An extra cut about 1 inch after the invoice is printed

Go into printer friendly setup, then select the receipt printer and choose the option 'Cut at this station'. Make sure it is unchecked. Your problem solved ;)
