Please follow the below given instructions to resolve the issue.

Please click on Start >> Programs >> HP >> HP Director.

Click on Settings >> Print Settings >> Printer Settings.

Click on Quality Tab at top of Printer Settings Window >> Set the Paper type as " Plain Paper " .

Click on Layout Tab at top of Printer Settings Window > Set the Paper size that you are using >> Click on Apply and then on OK.

Try Printing, that should resolve the issue that you are experiencing with.

If the issue still persists, try installing alternate drivers by following the below given instructions.

Installing the Alternate drivers:

1. Right click on My Computer, select Explore and then goto Control Panel, and then select Printer and Faxes.
2. Double-click the Add Printer icon. Click Next.
3. When prompted, choose Local, and then click Next.
4. In the Manufacturers list, choose HP.
5. In the Printer list, choose the HP Deskjet 870C printer, and then click Next.
6. Choose the port as parallel port, and then click Next.
7. The printer name should be listed as HP Deskjet 870C Printer.
8. Click No when the "Do you want your Windows based programs to use this printer as your default printer?" message appears. Then click Next.
9. Click No when the "Would you like to print a test page (recommended)" message appears. Then, click Finish.

Configure the alternate printer driver
1. Right-click the HP Deskjet 870C printer icon placed in the Printers window.
2. Select the Properties menu item.
3. Select the Details or Ports tab.
4. Select the DOT4_00x (where the "x" represents any digit) port from the Print to the Following Port list.
NOTE: The All-in-One model number should appear as part of the port destination.
5. Leave the printer identified as HP Deskjet 870C printer, and click the Apply button.
6. Close the Printer Properties window.

If Deskjet 870c is not listed, you may even try with Deskjet 990c or 550c

Hope that above information will work.

The printer won't print because it says it is out

Make sure you inserting the paper not deep inside just insert and stop it when you feel any resistance .and try to print something. If it is print then well otherwise you have to show it service center.

Printer says there is a paper jam but there is not.

Please double check your printer for paper. Just a little piece of paper left in the printer rollers or out tray will not let the printer operate property.

Printer says out of paper. paper added still wont print

The solution to this is bizarre but worked for me.
In Vista press the windows key and R button. The Run window opens and in the run window type services.msc and then press Enter.
2. Locate Print spooler from the Services window which opened in the previous step.
3. Right click on it and select Restart.

Your printer will print a self-test page but then should be good to go.

HP psc 1210 will not print


Please check the printer status at control panel printer properties if it is offline or ready. Restart your computer if necessary, you will notice all pending jobs will be printed as long as there is no problem with the connections of cables and drivers. Note: Do not cancel printing jobs in the middle of sending data mode to printer or queing instead you have to remove all papers on tray and wait for the error "paper out or empty" then there click Cancel. Hopes this helps.
