Question about HP DeskJet 940c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Doesn't pront the whole picture

I had been printing and all of a sudden it just quit. It prints about 1/2 inch on the top and then shoots out. I have tried different things like put in new cartridges, sure the back door is securely shut and I don't know what else to do. It has never done this to me before. I am thinking it is worn out just like me. I have had it for several years and no problems.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me

Will it print it's own status page? or a page of just basic text? Are you printing a picture? You may need more than 30+ Megabytes of free disk space for the print job to spool.
0) Verify your Hard Disk has enough free space.
1) turn printer off for 1-2 min. Turn back on and try again.
2) Reboot the computer and try again.
3) Shutdown all other programs and try printing again.
4) Try printing from another program. (ie. while reading this, click print ;-) )
5) unplug printer from wall and computer; remove driver; reinstall from original disk.
6) Try printer on a different computer

If this does not help; take two aspirin and call back !

Good luck!

Printer keeps printing same thing over and over and will not quit. I pressed for 1 copy and it keeps shooting out the same thing. It won't let me fax it just prints. Help!

go to control panel--to add a printer--click on the printer and you will see whats printing
highlight each line in the print task que one at a time and cancel print
the command is probably in a loop and it will print the previous print instruction over until the task is deleted

Good chance something is wrong with the tray, are you able to print of you place paper in the multi-purpose tray (tray 1)?

If so, one thing that may be your problem in tray 2 is here:

Getting extra 1 inch margin on ''normal'' or ''best'' print

Hi - have you checked the settings for both the document(s) you are trying to print and the defaults for the printer? It could be that there is a default setting that is trying to override what you want to do. I can't think of a reason for it to act differently with different quality of print, unless the ink is running low - that can affect a document printing or not, but again, I would not think to this effect.

Some things to check on -

- Go to the control panel, open the Printers and Faxes folder, and right click on your printer.
Choose PROPERTIES. Make sure everything is set like you want it to be.
(If you are on a network of some kind, someone else's settings could be overriding yours. If you are not on a network, make sure "Do not share this printer" is checked on the sharing tab.)

-try to update the driver. Here is a good place to look -

I am assuming you have already actually checked for little scraplettes of paper that might be stuck near a sensor or an ink cartridge. I'd even pop the ink cartridges out and put them back in. Sometimes dust can build up on them if a printer isn't used often, or has been sitting for a long time.

Also, make sure you don't have a setting on your own computer to print out a blank sheet before a printing job. If your printer is actually run through an I/T department at work, they could have it set up by default to kick out a separator sheet to help keep orders separated.

I hope one of these things might work for you! : )

Vertical dots on print output

1 1/2 inches apart would correspond to the diameter of the primary charge roller. You have one chrarge roller inside each toner cartridge so you need to determine which color the dots are and then replace that cartridge.
