Printer not printing properly

I upgraded to Dell computer Dec 8/07 with Vista premium . The printer prints only half the page .If it prints the whole page, the font too small that it is hard to read, maybe 8 or less font. The tech support at Dell told me to purchase XP & downgrade since I am having problems with vista. My old computer is ok printing with HP Officejet 5610. Now I send all my printing to my laptop using XP & I have no problem. I have a Samsung coloured laser printer & it is great.

Printer only prints half of page

My printer does this when the paper isn't seated properly and/or that paper guide isn't set correctly. If this all seems OK, then try a head clean. You should be able to do this from the printer options in Windows.

Want to print in b&w

I think the problem might be with the printer you are using. All my printers that I am using with different pc's using vista (4 printers all from different companies) have a colour and a greyscale button I can select under the quality tab in printer preferences. I don't get a B & W button to select from at all. I checked the help file in vista and it mentions "print color images in black and white" briefly, and the only thing it says is "option only available on supported printers". I am guessing you didn't upgrade your printer when you went to vista and maybe the OS doesn't support all the functions on the old printer. I had to give my favourite printer away to a friend and buy a new one when I changed to vista originally as my old one wouldn't even connect after I upgraded. Got very annoyed over that one let me tell you. At least yours still works so you had a better experience than I got stuck with after upgrading. Can you check your printer makers website to see if they have updated Vista drivers for your model? If they don't they might have some other info on doing what you want to do. Otherwise see about upgrading the printer to something newer I guess.

After reinstalling windows vista home premium and microsoft works

Pushing the continue button and getting a test page just lets you know the printer is functional. This is a test without having the computer involved. If you can print a test page from the print driver, this lets you know that there is communication between the computer and the printer.

Uninstall your current drivers for the 1700, there are 2 places to look for the drivers, one would be in your all programs list, Dell Printer, uninstall, the other would be in control panel, programs and features, look for the dell printer software there. Once you have this uninstalled, go to device manager while the printer is still attached to your computer. In device manger look for the icon that represents the printer, right click it and then click uninstall. Now detach your printer, close device manager, restart your computer. Next you will boot back to the desktop, attach your printer, if windows recognizes and tries to install the printer, stop/cancel it. Install the printer drivers from the file you downloaded from the Dell support site. Now try printing from your application.

Dell's support site and download the most recent Vista drivers. Here is the link for Vista driver

My HP LaserJet 1012 isn't printing. I can't print anything on my hp laser jet 1012. I have installed the CD disc and it says that it can't install it. It does go through the whole program. When I click on...

so the printer used to work fine before the computer was reset, right? the operating system you had is the same you have now? (like you had XP and now have Vista, or kept the same?) cause if you changed operating system you might have a driver version conflict.

this printers have a green button right? if so, what happen if you press it? does it print a demo page? correctly??

i recommend you to go and download the newest drivers for your model and operating system.

if this doesnt solve the issue (but the demo page came out OK) then you may want to check your communication cable. and do the reinstalling procedure again.

if still not working you will have to take your printer to be reset, or look over the web on how to, that information is classified.

Can't get my printer to print

Hello lilltlellulu2,

This is Enday, to solve your problem, try to check if you have installed the ink cartridges properly... If you have installed the software for the printer ,you must restart your system unit inorder to take effect on what changes you as ther hardware to work.

Now, after restarting, click on the control panel, then you can see your printer installed,,right click on the printer icon>properties>print test page...

Just see if its working this time...

Thank you... and Good day...
