This is the information I received from another person when i ask for help. I did exactly as it said and my printer works fine now. Try it and see if it works for you. Good Luck!

First download and run "CleanupUtility.exe" from:

Then unplug the printer's USB cable and restart your PC.

Then download and run the printer's drivers/install program for Vista, from:

Only plug the USB cable back in when the drivers/install program tells you to.

After install, I think it asks for another reboot.
Then all should work fine.

My printer doesnt print , it goes on but doesnt print

Have you tried to run a test print at the printer? There is usually a self test feature that will print out a demo page. If that works then check your interface cable and/or print software. If it doesn't work, then you may have an internal printer problem.

HP Color LaserJet CM1312nfi MFP printer leaves a 2 inch area unprinted using any programs. So basically it doesnt print the entire page.

turn on/off, unplug, plug in2_bing.gif, should reset configs.

take all the paper out, put half as much back in.
check the rollers to make sure no paper or particles are preventing printing

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above. HP has an awesome website for this type os trouble shooting

hope this helps and good luck

HP pcs 1610 won't print words. Prints symbols instead.

Try creating the document on another program. If that does not work try to find software from another site HP should have all the software and updates on a current download file. You should not have interference with the download, if so there may be a quirk in your computer somewhere.

This problem sounds like the printer is not set up properly on the computer. Have you installed the software that came with it? If so, look for the printer under control panel and then try a test page. If the test page doesnt work, how is the printer connected to the computer, by USB cable? If it is connected by usb, try shutting the computer down, unplugging the usb cable, restarting the computer and once it is fully started, plug the usb cable for the printer back in. Do you hear a tone after the printer is plugged in? If so try to print again.

Actually its not my solution... see

"Holly" posted something that worked for me:

Holly Jul 6, 2005 07:09:59 GMT Unassigned Hello!

This is something you can try. Sometimes the printer doesn't understand that the alignment page you are scanning is for it to read, therefore you have to do a 'standalone alignment' on the unit before it actually does understand. Here is how you do it:

1. Hold Cancel and On, then release.
2. In sequence, press Cancel, Resume, Paper Type, Color Start Copy.
3. Another alignment page will print out and this is the one that you should actually put faced down in the scanner glass and press Scan.
^Hopefully that will be the last and final time that the alignment page prints out!!

Ink problems

This is what worked (so far) with my Dell1.gif AIO A940 printer1.gif that wouldn't print black ink.

It worked for awhile when I chose photo/glossy paper, but then it quit printing again (see below).


I got it to print, again, by putting SEVERAL papers in the feeder (instead of just 1) - there is a sensor that is supposed to automatically detect paper type, and it might not be working right, especially with one or only a couple of sheets.
