Why isn't my printer printing my picture?

My printer is having an issue printing. I had no problem yesterday. I changed the ink today. Test print comes out fine. However, when i try to print a picture, the paper doesn't feed through, and i end up with a band of colour along the edge. Like I said, it isn't jammed, as a test print, prints out fine. Can anyone help?

    My laptop is windows based, over a wireless network. I gave up last night, and shut everything off. I am trying again right now to see if it works.

Is it mac or windows based pc? Is the printer directly plugged in via USB cable, or is it a wireless network printer?

In most cases, if it was working as it now now. A simple computer restart can do the trick. If not, the other questions will help direct someone to the right place to look at the settings to make sure its properly being recognized by the computer

    Alright. So, it seems like only the "Fit picture to frame" isn't printing properly. If i uncheck that box, it prints. The white 'borders' along the side are to be expected. However, there is also a 'border' along the top, but NOT the bottom. I'm not sure if that could have something to do with the problem of printing a full page.

SOURCE: HP Deskjet 990cxi Printer NOT printing B/W, only red.

To customer of HP deskjet 990cki: I purchased the HP photosmart Plus B209 ~ January 2010. 3 months into, I have learned that when the color ink that you don't use evaporates, the black ink will not work at all, no matter what you adjust or clean.To make it work you have to purchase more color ink...on & on & on..$$$$. Neither HP nor Best Buy will refund my investment. Spoken with HP customer service reps. in the Philippines & Canada both being outside of the US. NO customer satisfaction. No refunds. I suggest Boycotting both corps.

I replaced the black ink cartridge yesterday and it seemed to print fine. Today it is not dispensing any ink. (I also just replaced the print head a few weeks ago.)

You will be asked to enter your model and serial number. Also, make sure your printer is updated. The firmware update will help give you a highly reliable print system.

Flashing yellow light. paper does not load.

It's trying to say that the page you are trying to print is too complex.If you press the button to cintinue it may print out part of the page. Check the printer driver for print resolution settings. Change it to 300dpi and try again. Or, you could always add some extra memory to the printer. If you decide to add extra memeory, don't forget to tell the print driver it has more memory

HP printer not printing true color all of a sudden.

Altho the cartridge is new, you may have used all of the ink of one color. Pictures take an enormous amount of ink to print and all three primary colors are used to create the hues and colors indicated on the picture. Try a new color cartridge and see if that works.

Print head

Check that all, printhead and ink are seated and contacts are correct.

Power down the printer and allow for a complete power on and self test.
