Re: double printing

Despite much deep cleaning, the printer is still not printing correctly - it misses out colours, letters etc. Do we need a new head, and how do we fix it please.

How do I get rid of shadows on my printing from my HP Photosmart C3180 printer? There is an extra shadow behind EVERY single piece of text. It makes the whole page look blurry. It isn't as if t

I have a Canon printer. Whenever pictures or text gets a double or blurry image I open the printer solutions menu. It sounds as though there is a problem with inkjet alignment. By clicking the realignment button the printer will automatically realign the jets. I usually test the alignment by printing a page from that program. All the line segments should line up.

LaserJet 5Si printing slow use to be able to hit the print key then the printer would fire away. seems like the printer pauses between pages then prints maybe 3 to 4 pages per minute

Could be software. I have seen the last several Adobe latest version documents take several seconds to print. I have also seen increased print times with MS office 2003 Powerpoint documents.If it is a single page MS Word or Excel document and u are printing several copies of it, you should turn off the collate feature for printing of that document

LJ 2200 not printing 1 doc

If only one document won't print, I would focus on the document, not the printer

The document you're trying to print most likely has one of several issues. There could be character combinations and hidden characters located in the file that are inadvertently being interpreted as printer codes; the paper settings or preferences for the document could be forcing an unsupported paper type, like A4; or the document itself is possibly larger then the printer can en queue.


Depends on the document type. Word processing documents can be cut or pasted in notepad (A Windows Accessory) to strip hidden characters. You can check you print preview to see the paper size, or force the job to 8.5x11, or try breaking the document into smaller parts.

With spreadsheets and other programs you can try to print only a portion of the document to see where the failure occurs.

Special Note:

There are also issues when printing from terminal apps, SAP, AS400, or command-line pipes (if you use these types of thing you would know what I'm talking about) where you need to force the printer to release the page by sending a double carriage return or end-of-page code. This is more complicated and you will have to get help from your Network Administrator if this is the case.

Printer seems to be skipping

As the printer is printing fine from word......try to print from notepad and wordpad also.

If it prints fine then it is a problem with internet explorer or it can be also a problem with a particular website.

If you are facing the same problem with all the websites then try reinstalling Internet Explorer.
