Question about HP D1560 Deskjet Printer InkJet

HP DeskJet 1560 - multiple paper feed

I just bought a new DJ1560 printer, worked fine, until I tried to print a double-sided document. The printer permanently feeds multiple pages, permanently means about 90% mis-loads. One sided printing works acceptable, approx. 1-2% of misloads. The printer is new, printed less than 500 sheets. I cleaned the feeding mechanism several times, but this feeding problem is like a plague, I cant fix it.. Im working in a computer store, im repairing computers and printers daily, but this is a problem I really CAN NOT SOLVE, I will be pleased for any advice. 
Thanks, Marian from Slovakia.

    Thanks for post, the site you linked was the first I googled, i found there a general solution on my problem:

    "Do not print on media that has already been printed on. The dampness of the ink will cause pages to stick together."

    Ridiculous. There should be a warning in the printer overview "You have no chance of duplex print"... 

    I`m used to fan the paper everytime Im filling the feeder, its not the problem.
    I tried to roll the paper before I inserted it into the printer, so the paper had an upturned "U" shape, results were better, but not enough, cca. 20-30% of mis-loads.
    Putting a fan over the printer might be a good idea, I`ll try it out and I`ll give a post as soon as I`ll have some results.

This link may not help you to print duplex, but it will possibly explain why you're having problems...Make sure you fan the paper before loading it. You might try putting a fan on it to dry out the ink as it prints...or try a heavier paper. Good luck! If you google duplexer feed problem you'll see this is the subject of numerous patents and attempts to resolve the very difficulty you are having.
(Maybe another of the same model would work better? Hp should exchange it if it's not working, no?)

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

How to duplex print with 895cxi


This model printer does not have a duplex unit and cannot print double sided documents automatically.
DOUBLE SIDED PRINTING USING A SINGLE SIDED PRINTER
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.
First print Page 1 then place the page back into the paper tray, but turn thepage upside down and the print Page 2.
Then print page 3 on one side then page 4 on the other side and repeat for therest of the document.
I suggest you try a test page first, to get the printing the right way up onboth sides of the page so it reads correctly.

When paper is feeding into the printer it takes to many pieces


If the printer is picking up multiple sheets of paper, follow the recommendations below:
  • Keep more than 10 sheets in the In tray.
  • Ensure media is not loaded too far and extending past the In tray.
  • Store all media in a dry, cool place. Humid climates will see this issue more often.
  • Do not print on media that has already been printed on. The dampness of the ink will cause pages to stick together.
If the printer continues to pick up multiple sheets of paper, follow the following troubleshooting steps below:
  1. Remove the media from the In tray.
  2. Fan the edges, re-square the media, and reload the media properly into the In tray.
  3. Slide the paper width guide to the right until it stops at the edge of the media, then push the paper length guide towards the paper until it stops.
  4. NOTE: Not all HP Deskjet printers have rear access doors. Skip this step if your printer does not have a rear-access door. Remove the rear-access door (if applicable) and clean the internal rubber rollers with a soft lintfree cloth moistened with distilled water. Wait until the rubber rollers dry and replace the rear access door.
  5. Verify that the correct media size and type is selected in the printer settings along with the appropriate quality.
  6. If this issue still persists, try a different type of paper.

HP Deskjet 5150 print is too small


Printers try to fit web pages on a single sheet of paper. If you configure the printer, in the print dialog, not to shrink images and text to fit the paper, it will print on multiple sheets of paper, but the correct size for the images and text.

In a Word document, it depends on what font size you have selected. Most people would rather have the web page print on a single sheet, with smaller images and text than were on the monitor; than tape together multiple sheets for 100% size printout.

Deskjet 895Cse is "sucking" paper in and stalling


Sounds like the printer is getting a bad command from the driver. Try upgrading your driver. Also it may be a bad document. Copy and Paster your text into a new document to see if it clears the corruption.
