My printer won't print letter automatically. It's stuck on printing only legal. If I pull legal tray out it will print letter. But I need it to adjust with alternating print jobs.

Printer wont stop paper, if any page length mismatch,Select page length as any size, as well as while shooting the print command select page length as legal & try it. I feel that teflon not rotating properly, result paper jamming at bottom end. If any paper length faulty printer detects the length give message of mis match..Pl check carefully...

MY HP LaserJet 2840 has a brand new Toner cartridge. Now it won't print at all and we are getting a "OPC at end of life" prompt. What does this mean?

Imaging drum reach 20,000 (black only) or 5,000 (color), replace the image drum.

Supplies life
The life of the imaging drum depends on the number of black-only or color pages that print jobs
require. Imaging-drum life is also affected each time the device calibrates because calibrating causes the imaging drum to rotate. Imaging-drum life is measured in terms of number of rotations rather than number of pages printed.
The type and length of print jobs also affects drum life. A series of short print jobs uses more drum
life than an equivalent number of pages printed in a single large job. To extend drum life, print
multiple copies of a print job at one time rather than sending the same job to the device multiple times.
The life of a print cartridge depends on the amount of toner that print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, black print cartridges last an average of 5,000 pages and cyan, magenta, and
yellow print cartridges last an average of 2,000 pages. High-capacity cyan, magenta, and yellow print cartridges last an average of 4,000 pages. (A typical business letter has 5% coverage.)

I have a Samsung SCX-5635 multi-function printer/copier/fax & scanner. It worked great with my old IBM desktop computer running XP. However, a few days ago I upgraded to a new HP custom built HP...

Are you sure the driver is set to A4 paper and not Letter Size. Letter size is the default. Letter size being larger than A4 would mean the print would be off the bottom so you wont see it. Could be as simple as that.

When printing, instead of a picture, 70 or so pages of numbers and letters come out

Hello probsy,
I know what your problem is. But it's a matter of me properly conveying the information. Bottom line is that you you either have a corrupt print driver or the wrong print driver. A print driver is the program that is loaded on your computer (or your server if you have one) that enables your computer to communicate with/and submit data TO the printer. If the "driver" is corrupt or wrong, then the printer "MAY" still understand that it needs to print something.......but then you get the **** you are talking about. I have seen printers absolutley run the paper out of every tray printing squiggles and numbers and then ask for more paper !! So for example you have a Ricoh printer but you are using the print driver for a Xerox printer. The printer MAY recognize the command to "PRINT", but what it prints will be.....who knows? At this point I have answered your question. I would go further but you will need to remove the printer from your pc and reload and install the CORRECT/CLEAN driver. I am sorry I can't be your IT person. If I gave you further instructions I may do more harm than good. Show this post to anyone you trust with your computer and they will get it, and can be there "near you and live" and you will be fine. Take care. :-) SPINAL

I have a new photosmart C4680 printer and I can only print one copy at a time from my computer. I want to print two or more copies at a time. What do I do to make this happen ?

Usually the number of copies of a certain print job is handled by the software.

Example: You have written a one page letter using WordPad. You would like the C4680 to print 2 copies of this letter:

1) On the menu, click "File"

2) Choose "Print..."

3) On the page that follows, change the number of copies to 2. There are other options you may choose at this time, if desired.

4) Click Print

The unit should start printing 2 copies of your letter.

My 6200 Lexark will only print the first part of a page (approx.30-40%) then the paper comes out. The printer counter then goes to l00% but does not print anything else.

Sounds like you may have the wrong driver installed, does it do this with any type of printing (pictures, letters, web pages, etc.)?

Doesn't print correctly

Current printers do not have a 'built-in' font or character set. The printers only print what they are told to print by the application from which they are printing. What program are you printing from? Does it do this with all programs? Check printing from very basic programs like Notepad or Wordpad (print documents that are at least a couple of pages long). If the printer prints correctly from there, you may need to contact the publisher of the program that is giving you the weird printing.
