Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
When I try to print from nwa.com (boarding pass) or certain pdf documents sent via email, etc. the printer says error occured and multiple sheets start spewing out of printer with hearts, funny faces, emoticons, crazy font. Usually a few per page and then another page starts in. Cannot stop without going to print qeue and manually cancelling print job. I can fax the boarding pass from nwa.com website to the printer and it will then print out fine. I know MAC computers had similar type problem with certain graphics programs. I have a dell pc with windows xp.
I understand that the printer is printing garbage when you are trying to print from internet.
Please follow the below given instructions to resolve the issue.
