Question about HP PhotoSmart 245 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I tried printing from all adobe programs i work with - all i get is blank pages...

I have an ancient photo printer, i know - but drivers are still available and my mac (running yosemite) recognizes the printer.

    tried it on Mac Mavericks - that works. The problem seems to be that i cannot choose paper size (yosemite), and that works fine in Mavericks. Still would like the printer to work with Yosemite.

Try to set up the custom paper size from the Print dialog box in another application and then choose it in your application that was printing blank pages.

My EPSON Stylus Photo 1400 Ink Jet Printer is printing blank photos. The ink levels are fine, it's feeding photo paper fine, it's making the same noise as it does when it prints but the photos are...


Hi,

Your problems states that photos are being blank when trying to print it.
Please try these tips.

  • Make sure your printer is selected in the Print window or in the Macintosh Page Setup and Print windows.
  • The print head nozzles may need cleaning.
  • Make sure your printer software settings are set for the paper size you're using.

Plus,i also wanted to know if you can print ordinary documents or print a test page.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

All 4 color cartridges are fine and it came out blank on the sheet of paper?


First, try printing the nozzle check from the menu on the printer itself. If that is fine, then try to print a test page from your printers properties panel on the computer ( Printers, right click on the printer and select properties, and then click on print test page at the bottom). If that doesn't work, remove and reinstall the printer software. If it does work, try printing from another program, as the issue may be with the program you are trying to use. Wordpad is always a good test program for this. Please let me know if you still have issues so we can fix this issue and get you printing again.

Page is blank after printing


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Photoshp CS2 print differnet photos on one sheet photo paper


Hi,

for printing multiple photos in different layouts, photoshop might not be the best program.
You can howerver do it, here is how:

Open a new document with the preset letter (if your printer prints letter format) or Din A4 (if it prints A4 pages).

Open the three (or more, or less =) photos, so that you have four windows in photoshop (one is the blank page)

now with the move tool (tool palette -> top left corner) drag and drop the photos onto the blank page you created.

They might be too big (or too small). In order to change that, hit strg-T (if youre mac thats apple-T).
This will show a frame around the photo, where you can drag the corners to enlarge or shrink the photo. Hold down shift while doing that so the picture stays in proportion (youll see what i mean).

When the pic is the right size, hit the okay button on top of the workspace or just hit enter.

arrange your photos and hit File->Print with Preview (or something like that)
Now you can see how the printer is going to print the page.
If its cut of, youll have to go to Page Setup and set it to Landscape mode (or Portrait)

When you hit okay, Photoshop might tell you that the printer will cut off edges of your picture. This usually isnt true because the edges of your page should be white anyways (most printers dont print to the border of the page, so calculate 1,5 cm or so)

so just hit proceed and print


I hope this wasnt too complicated, come back with more questions if you want =)
also, be sure to try picasa from google for organizing photos (i think you can print from there too)

Printer prints top 1" of page, then just spits out blank pages


If the printer works ok on another PC, it seems quite clear that the problem is definately software (Driver) related. If you haven't done so already, I recommend adding the printer through the Printer\Faxes Add Printer Wizard and pointing it to take the drivers off the install CD (if you have one) rather than installing the printer from the CD Autorun. Just make sure that you've deleted the printer completely from Printers\Faxes and rebooted before each install attempt.

I hope this helps!

Cheers,

Printer prints always only a blank page


2 more things to try. Assuming it is USB Change USB port. Re boot the computer. Replace the cable. Reboot the computer. Coming back to the driver software. Go to Start /Printers and Faxes/Install new printer Leave what is there in place When the Wizard comes up and asks CD or Select from list Choose select from list - then go to HP and your model and simply load the generic driver. Try each alteration one at a time Tell us what you get.

Cannon i860 printer will not print


I don't have specific answers, but here are some steps to check things out. When you say 'just shoots out blank pages', do you mean that the print heads don't pass over the page? If they do, check you ink cartridges to see that they are properly seated. If the printer sends out a series of blank or mostly blank pages, the drivers may have become corrupt. Download the latest drivers, uninstall the printer, and install with the new drivers. If you have the latest driver, uninstall and reinstall the printer. Run the head alignment and color tests. Check your printer cable. If you have a spare, try another cable.
