Hi,

Please perform Cold Reset and then upgrade the firwmare of the printer
HP LaserJet 4250 and 4350 Series Printers - Performing a Cold Reset NOTE: The Jetdirect LAN (such as the IP address of the printer) settings will be reset to defaults by this operation. Record LAN settings before resetting the printer. Reconfigure LAN settings after the reset if you are using a LAN connection). To avoid resetting the LAN settings disable the embedded Jetdirect before performing a Cold Reset by choosing the Disable LAN option from the choices available when you get to step 5 below. Note that after choosing to disable the LAN it is necessary to reboot the printer and then choose to perform the Cold Reset . During the power up sequence only one operation can be performed at a time. In this case, first disable the LAN, then reboot the printer and perform the Cold Reset followed by another reboot to reenable the LAN.
To perform a cold reset:

  1. Turn the printer power off.
  2. Power on the printer and watch for the memory count to begin.
  3. Hold down the SELECT (Checkmark) button, when you see the memory count begin.
  4. Continue holding down the SELECT (Checkmark) button until all three printer control-panel lights flash once and then remain on. This might take up to 10 seconds.
  5. After the message SELECT LANGUAGE appears on the display, press the UP ARROW button or the DOWN ARROW button until COLD RESET appears on the display
  6. Press the SELECT (Checkmark) button. The printer performs a cold reset and then continues its power-on sequence.
  7. Check all I/O settings and reset any user-set printer configuration values. NOTE: Before the I/O (LAN) settings can be reset to their correct values the embedded Jetdirect must first be renabled to make those options visible and available on the control panel of the printer. Renable it in the control panel settings then reset them to their correct values.

How can i print multiple copies of the same document with 3 pages and have the printer staple the copies in the correct groups?


In the print driver you should have the option to collate, you need to make sure that that option is on, and when you go to send the print job, you need to make sure that you adjust the finishing options in the driver to tell it to staple.

COMPUTER ERRONOUSLY SHOWS MULTIPLE PRINTERS


simple right click on the one that is not the default and select delete.

if (copy 1) is the one selected default and you want the other to be the default, right click on the other one and select "make default" then proceed to delete the other one.

it's not wrong to have multiple printers showing up. sometimes is actually needed. what you see there is not the printer itself but a logical printer. you may have 1 printer device and several logical printers for that printer device (physical device), one logical device may be used for one set of users with one specific configuration while other logical printer device may be used for another set of users with different default configuration. although if you are the only using the printer on your computer you just need one logical device for your physical device.

I hope that helps!

HP 4 Plus printing same job multiple times


I'm not an HP user but try this.

Does this work with all programs (e.g. when you try to print a page from Google) or does it happen only when using your word processing program? Which program are you using?

When you tell it to print one page there is generally a place in every word processor that will allow you to tell it how many copies you want. Make sure that setting is correct. Check your default settings as well to ensure they are set to one page.

If you don't know how to change the number of copties, go to your help setting in the program and look up "copies"

Also check your hardware setting on your printer to make sure you don't have it set to 5 copies.

Using XP sp2, excel 2000 and HP 4250 printer. Any


The print settings can be different for different programs. Open Excel and in the File menu, choose Page Setup. Click on Options, and towards the bottom is a setting that says Copies. Change this to "1" and hit OK, and you should be fine.

Hope that helps!

My hp 1320 prints multiple copies instead of one copy


Go to "printers and faxes."
Right click on your printer and select "Printing preferences."
Select "Advanced" tab
Double click "paper output"
If "Copy count=2" then change to 1 and apply
IF IT ALREADY IS SET TO 1 THEN:
Set "copy count=2" then APPLY
Repeat the above and now set "copy count=1"

The process of setting and resetting the copy count fixed my issues.

HP 4250 DTN will not print multiple copies


if this is ran through a network which i would think most likely due to the machine then you will need to change the number of copies to be printed on the control panel on the fron of your machine as well as that will have the final say over what comes out of it.

i think it should be as follows:
press the green tick, press down, green tick on print quality.

i may be worng on where its located as not used one for a while.

if i am wrong on it the go into the information menu and print out a menu map. this will show you which sub-directory its in.



Hope this helps.

Why do all pages print onto one page when i hit the print button in a multipage document


I guess you are using word. In that case the default driver you use and comes standard with windows is flawed. Download a new one from HP.
