Follow these steps to try and resolve the issue: Step one: Reset the printer

  1. Unplug the all-in-one USB cable from the computer.
  2. Verify the computer and the all-in-one have a three-prong power cord that connects to the power outlet.
  3. Unplug the all-in-one power cord from any power strips or surge protectors, and plug it directly into a wall outlet.
  4. Make a copy or scan, and see if the issue is resolved. If not, proceed to the next step.

NOTE: If the scanner bulb is not lit during a copy or scan, the product needs service. Step two: Clean the glass and scanner backing
  1. Turn off the all-in-one.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  3. Unplug the power cord from the back of the all-in-one.
  4. Raise the lid.
  5. Clean the glass with a soft dry cloth, or a sponge slightly moistened with non-abrasive glass cleaner or water. CAUTION: Do not use abrasives, acetone, benzene, or carbon tetrachloride on the glass; they can damage it. Do not place or spray liquid directly on the glass; the liquid might seep under the glass and damage the device.
  6. Dry the glass with a chamois, cellulose sponge or soft cotton cloth to prevent spotting.
  7. Clean the white scanner backing with a soft dry cloth or sponge slightly moistened with water, and allow it to dry.
Step three: Try a blank copy
  1. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  2. Plug the power cord into the all-in-one.
  3. Turn the power on.
  4. Close the lid; do not place any paper on the glass.
  5. Load paper in the paper tray.
  6. Do either of the following:
    • Press Start Copy Black to start a black-and-white copy job.
    • Press Start Copy Color to start a color copy job.
  7. If the output is a full/half-black page, or has vertical black lines, the product needs service.
Step four: Service the product If you have completed all of the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service your product.

How do I change the print size on my D4160 hp printer

There basically two approaches to changing the print size of your printer whether D4160 printer or any modern other particularly hp printer.
1. Go to file/print or simply do ctrl P on your keyboard. The print menu pops up. Go to properties/features. When the features tab opens look for resizing options. Under resizing options you will see print at actual size and scale to paper size. Select scale to paper size and list box will activated. Select the paper size to scale to from the list. If you are not familiar with paper sizes then this list introduction should do. The conventional official paper size is A4, half of that is A5, and half of that is A6.
2. The other procedure is to simply right click on the image and select print. A print wizard pops up. It enables you to chose size of images and automatically fits them into 1 per page, 2 per page or 4 per page depending on how many images you selected in the first place. However this is meant specifically for images/photos.
3. Again you may decide to physically resize them in the application (Word, CorelDraw etc) you are working with before sending print.

Last print line of any doc printed with HP J6480 is cut off

I had been experiencing this problem intermittently for some time, so I finally got a hold of HP support and with the second support technician, I did get a solution that worked for the document I was printing at the time. When Printing, click Printing Preferences, click the Advanced tab, under the Printer Features section, set Minimize margins to On. Per the technician, 'The printable area of the product increases (bottom margin 12 mm to 3 mm), so that printing closer to the edge of the paper.'

Also, he recommended using the printer's Print Preview option under same the Printer Preferences window. When I did, I did in fact see the document's bottom paper being 'cutoff' with the old settings (i.e., Minimize margins Off), with it On, it look okay.

Hope this helps. Let me know if this works for you.
