SOURCE: HP LaserJet 2420dn prints twice

You may have checked this already, but make sure your printer driver is not set up to print two copies per print job if it is then that's the easiest place to change settings. Or you can print out your printer's menu by doing the following: To print a menu map 1. Press (SELECT button) to open the menus. 2. Use (UP button) or (DOWN button) to scroll to INFORMATION, and then press (SELECT button). 3. Use (UP button) or (DOWN button) to scroll to PRINT MENU MAP, and then press (SELECT button) Look for anything that says "copies" and usually that will let you know what is set on the printer. To change a control-panel setting 1. Press MENU to open the menus. 2. Use (UP button) or (DOWN button) to scroll to the menu that you want, and then press (SELECT button). 3. Some menus might have several submenus. Use (UP button) or (DOWN button) to scroll to the submenu item that you want, and then press (SELECT button). 4. Use (UP button) or (DOWN button) to scroll to the setting, and then press (SELECT button). Some settings change rapidly if (UP button) or (DOWN button) is held down. An asterisk (*) appears next to the selection on the display, indicating that it is now the default. 5. Press MENU to exit the menu Good Luck.

SOURCE: HP 1320 duplex printing paper jam

Managed to solve this myself: I disassembled the printer and noticed there was a paper jammed in the duplex tray. Rolls were all ok, but the paper blocked the use of the duplex pathway. For disassembly help check the HP 1320 service manual, which you can find on the net as a PDF.

Fails to print after paper jam fix


If you are still seeking assistance with your Officejet J4680 printer rosemarie gogarty I would be happy to help. Have you tried a hard reset? To do so, leave the printer on and unplug the power cable for 1 minute. While it is unplugged, hold down the power button on the printer for 10-15 seconds to release any built up power, then after the minute has passed, plug the printer back in.

If the issue persists, let me know, I will happily do all I can to help,

Thanks,
I work on behalf of HP.

Your black cartridge is most definitely clogged. You can easily check that by removing the cartridge and press the print head on some tissue. If there is no mark, the print head on your black cartridge is clogged. Now, HP has some kind of software head cleaning. It doesn't always work, but you can try. Here is a link to HP site, referring to your problem: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01361894&cc=bg&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3692888
Read carefully and follow the instructions.
If that doesn't solve your problem, you should buy a new black cartridge.
Also, bear in mind that with ink-jet printers, you need to print something at least once in 10-15 days, otherwise the print head will again get clogged and you will be facing the same issue over and over again. If you do not print on a regular basis, make some kind of test page, that contains black, yellow, magenta and cyan. Print that page once in 2 weeks and your printer will always work fine.

I have just got a new HP wireless printer, i have vista on my laptop and even though it said installation was complete it says error when i try and print and says printer offline. its a hp j4680


I had a similar problem,and after spending several hours on the phone with an HP tech yesterday, reinstalling the drivers over and over, we ended up manually creating a port with the printers IP address. Under "printers," right click on the 4680. Go to "properties," the "ports." We added a port, and named it the IP address. Then I could print. I STILL CANNOT SCAN, however!

I also have Vista.
