Delete the printer icon. Restart your PC. Reinstall the printer driver. If that doesn't work, your printer cable may be faulty.

Prints jibberish


Hi Anna,

This is because of corrupted Printer Drivers. You have to uninstall and reinstall your Printer Drivers. Either from the Printer disk or from www.hp.com website.

Printer is printing jibberish on not working on test prints


If you can print to it the network setup is ok. It sounds more like a print driver problem.

Paper keeps feeding thru w/o printing. Prints a couple of lines jumbled (not what's on screen), throws it out and takes more paper.


Try uninstall the printer drivers and download then install the latest version. This blank paper printing with random "symbols" are caused by incompatible drivers.

Cannot print correctly from the internet it will only print the code but will print from my documents fine.


You'll find that you have to select (highlight) copy and then paste it to say, a word file. Now about the only way you can accurately print something from the internet is if you see Printer Friendly- or print from copy.
If you have never copied and pasted before this is very useful...Select what you want to copy, right click and you see the word copy...now as long as you don't right click again it will stay just as you selected it. Now go to Word, word pad, note pad, almost and thing with a blinking cursor, open it and right click again and choose Paste this time and what ever you copied will be displayed. Very useful commands,
Good choice on printers, I have a photosmart 1000 and it still works like new.
Hope you can follow my jibberish.
Please leave a rating, thank you kindly

When printing from the network. Alot of jumbled words.


It sounds like either a corrupt print driver installed on your pc or the incorrect one. Make sure you have the correct driver for your machine and download another one anyway in case your one is corrupt. Delete the one you are using first before installing the new one.
