Completely uninstall the printer in Add/Remove Hardware option in Control Panel.
Unplug printer from the computer.
Unplug printer from power source for approximately 15 minutes to clear printer's cache memory.

Reboot your computer.

Then, follow the printer manufacturer's instructions and do a fresh install of the software for your printer.
This should solve your problem.

My HP 960c won't stop printing. I get mostly blank sheets with jibberish at the top, but it's continuous.


Turn off the printer. On the computer in the lower right by the time, there should be a printer icon, double click it. This will open the print que. Select all documents in the printer que and delete or cancle them. You may have to reboot the computer for this to clear completely. Once the que is clear, turn the printer back on. Do a test print to the printer and see if the issue is cleared up. If not you may need to reload your print drivers.

Hope this helps you

725 printer prints constanty on its own when not called for


If it's printing jibberish or "ASCII Garbage" then you probably have the wrong print driver installed.
Uninstall the print driver, disconnect the printer, reboot and reinstall the driver plugging the printer back into the PC when the installation software prompts you to.

When i print out a paper, there is a black line through the print out.


I am assuming your black line is printed (not smudged ink)...
If your printer is also scanner/copier, try copying a page (rather than printing from computer).
If it scans & prints ok, it could be communication/driver problem. Try reloading the drivers and see if it improves. If the black line is there when copying as well, there's probably not much you can do about it.

hope this helps

Printer is printing jibberish on not working on test prints


If you can print to it the network setup is ok. It sounds more like a print driver problem.

Hp Photosmart c4280 Printing Jibberish, dirvers reinstalled.


You can go to HP's solution center and download a utility that will upgrade the "firmware" of the printer. If the upgraded firmware does nothing to fix it, it is e-waste.
