Question about HP PSC 1315 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printing off center

I am printing note cards. My HP PSC1610xi prints the first card on the sheet dead center but the second is about 3/16" off center. I have checked the template and I am using the correct one. I have used the same program and file on an Epson and both cards are centered. I would rather be using the HP for several reasons but a 50% loss is unacceptable

Re: printing off center

To cure your registration problem :
open the top cover (printer off ) moisten a microfiber towel with isopropanol alcohol then wipe all the rubber paper feed tires off to clean them.

Then try to print the note cards .

This is a traction related problem.

Hp 5520 will not print from sdhc card

From what I can tell from the specs, the 5520 works with SD cards, 2GB and smaller. It won't work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

I wish to use my HP Photosmart C8180 to print heavy weight cardstock... is there a setting that I can select to do this?

Step Three: Check the paper type Verify that only recommended paper is being used for printing. The recommended paper types and weights for most HP printers include:
  • Plain paper, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Legal size paper, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Card stock, up to a maximum of 110 lb (200 gsm)
  • Envelopes, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Photo paper, 145 lb (236 gsm)
NOTE: Supported paper weights and types vary by product. Check the Specifications sheet for your product for more information.

If you use card stock up to a maximum of 110lb then there should be no special mode to enter to print on this type of paper. Photo paper weighs in at 145 lb maximum which is heavier and can be printed on without selecting any special 'mode.'

Good luck on printing on heavy card stock.

Can't print envelopes made by "Greeting Card Factory" v7 on an HP B209a-m. Cards (.fgc file) print OK but envelopes (.fev files) won't print (envelope won't go into the print area; spoolvs.exe take 99% of...

The problem centered around the fact that the HP209 would only print 8.5X11 sheets from Greeting Card Factory. Any other size seized up the pring spool.

We're going to return the HP (We think it's defective) and get an Epson.

Printing a custom size card with a C7280,

There is a workaround for this problem by tricking the printer.
The paper sensor, on my printer model hp4500 seems to only sense the paper at the beggining of the print job.
What I did to trick the printer to print on odd size paper is slide the paper adjuster to 8.5 and put a regular white sheet in. Then put your odd size paper under it. When you print your document set the number of copies to 2 and print. The printer is going to sense that the paper is correct, and start the job.
Here is the tricky part... once the first 8.5x11 sheet is almost all the way through quickly slide the paper adjuster over to match the size of your odd width paper. The printer should pick up the odd paper and print the second copy. Fool you printa! You should be able to do batches of odd paper size under the first 8.5X11. I hope this helps.

Mis-alignment during printing of labels sheets

Solution!! Use "HP premium Plus Photo Paper" for the paper type setting. Works great with Avery labels & card stock as well. (business cards had the same alignment problem)

We need to manually set the size to print on the card size, go to HP Director or HP Solution center then settings >> print settings >> printer settings and manually set the size and then print.

Card stock won't feed


  1. Perform a semi-full reset on the all-in-one by following the steps below
  1. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the all-in-one.
  3. Wait 30 seconds, and plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  4. Press and hold the # and 6 buttons on the numeric keypad.
  5. While still holding the buttons, plug the power cord back in to the all-in-one. Continue to hold the buttons for two seconds, and then release them.
  6. Allow the all-in-one to re-initialize. This may take a minute or two.
  7. If prompts appear in the all-in-one display to set the front panel language and country settings, perform the steps to set this information.
  8. Insert the card back into the appropriate slot.
  9. If it does not begin to print a proof sheet automatically, press the Proof Sheet button and follow the normal process for your model to print a proof sheet.
  10. Once the proof sheet begins to print, press Cancel to stop the proof sheet from printing.
  11. Use the On button to turn the power off and then back on again.
    The problem should be corrected. If the problem still exists, service your product.

Can't Print on Card

I had the same problem with my 3 year old HP Officejet 5610. Feeding heavy paper or white card stock would result in a paper jam. The card stock would start to feed, but then stop half way. The pinch rollers seemed to spin without advancing the paper, even if the paper was fed one sheet at a time.

Solution: Clean the rubber pinch rollers with isopropyl rubbing alcohol. Partial disassembly/reassembly required.

To access the rollers, remove the scanner plate:
1. Disconnect power, USB, and phone cables.
2. Open up the scanner sheet feeder by tilting it left.
3. Unlatch the scanner scanner feeder so that it opens completely vertical. Latch is on front hinge only.
4. Remove the 4 corner hex screws on the scanner plate. Remove the 2 hex screws on the sheet feeder. (I used a small flat blade screw driver in the hex heads)
4. Lift the plate and sheet feeder away from printer box. Disconnect the 2 flat cable wires from the circuit board.
5. Scrub rubber pinch rollers with alcohol on a swab. Dry thoughly.
6. Reassemble. (NOTE: This is a good time to clean the underside of the glass plate and the scanner head)

HP 1310 series

I have an HP PSC1315 which is virtually the same printer. I actually created my own template where 10 business cards are printed as if it were one sheet of paper(like a poster). Of course you you can't select how many cards print, or which card to start on, but at least I get 10 perfectly centered cards.
