It really sounds like you might have bad ink cartridges, if you use re-filled cartridges they often have problems like you are describing. The ink will get clogged and not make it to the spray nozzel so the printer thinks its printing, but the ink isnt being sprayed onto the page.

Printing only left side of a page, right side totally blank


What application are you using to print text? Word?
Try a simple application, like Notepad or Wordpad, to print some simple two-liner text.
Does printer print ALL the text on left side or just the half of printable material?
Even if you are indicating that page size is correct, looks to me some problem with the selection of print area.

When printing, sentences over lap so the document is unreadable. Also it may only print the first line of a document.


Hi,

I've seen word documents do this sometimes and fixing it has worked differently each time.

1) Open the document and press CTRL + A (select all) on the keyboard and then CTRL + C (copy), then start a new document and press CTRL + V (paste). Save the new document as something different and try printing again.

2) Open the document again and select all and copy again,but this time open wordpad (a different program to Microsoft Word) by going to Start > Programs > Accessories > Wordpad, and paste the text into wordpad. This may change some of the formatting. Now, select all again, and copy, and start a new word document and paste.

Copying the text out of word and back in seems to work more often. Sometimes the best program to copy out to is notepad, but you lose pretty much all of the formatting when you copy back into word.

3) If this doesn't work, you could try to update your printer drivers, and if that doesn't work, as a last resort, you can delete the printer and create it again via the Control Panel > Printers.

Deskjet 3940 won't print using microsoft wordpad but works otherw


You will kick yourself !
It drove me crazy for 3 days and I had tried everything ! reloading the software, full system restore and pulled what little hair I have OUT !
I had exactly the same problems my printer which is an HP Photosmart 2610 all in one,would print photos and everything else EXCEPT anything from wordpad,notepad or similar ! the pages were coming out blank !
Wait for it !
The solution is so so simple !
As wordpad docs are only usually in BLACK.I decided to change the colour to blue and lo and behold it worked !
Simply my black cartridge was empty ! upon refilling Absolutely everything printed fine !
Sometimes the most simple solution we cannot see !
I hope this has been helpfull to you..............

When I print from Word with my hp1600 I'm getting blank pages at the beginning of the print..If My document is 5 Pages I get 5 blanks before actual printing begins. If my document is 1 Page I get 1 blank...


try using a different word program such as open office* or even notepad, if it prints correctly then try reinstalling microsoft word as there maybe some accidental alterations in the printing setup on word.
alternatively try reinstalling your printer.
*open office is a free to use program*

hope this helps
