Re: help

I had to add extra memory to mine. It is easy and not too expensive.

Otherwise you can reduce the memory size of the picture in a graphics program (IrfanView is free and safe, for example).
-resample/resize it
-reduce the DPI (Dots Per Inch)
-reduce the color depth (32bits to 24 or 16 or 12)
-sometimes converting it to a more compressed JPG or PNG will allow it to print.

Also sometimes printing it through a different program works.

I have a HP Photosmart Premium C309A All-in-one printer. I am trying to print a greeting card. I bought the HP glossy greeting card. The outside prints fine (the glossy side) but when I print on the...

This could be due to the print-head clogging up, or your ink cartridges being low.
First, I would suggest cleaning the printhead.

Setup menu -> Tools -> Clean Cartridges

Then try it once again. If this doesn't work, try cleaning the print head manually, as per this guide.

If the problem persists, buy new cartridges.

PCL5 OUT OF MEMORY Phaser 8860

After reading some similar stories, I simply restarted the Xerox Phaser printer via the menu on the physical printer. I theorize perhaps the Phasers on board memory could have been bogged down from all the pictures involved in the problem documents and all the size problems associated with large files.

My pictures are suddenly printing out in pink tones

Are you inserting the card directly in the printer and printing? Also how long has your printer setup without printing? If it has not been used for sometime I would suggest cleaning it with a cotton swab and finger nail polish remover where the heads are located. If you insert new print carts and it still happens after cleaning I would avoid it, simply because the cost of repair will be too high.

Hello,my hp laser jet 1320 does not work correctly,I work under an office network, some time it prints and some time does not print specially about pdf files or high size files, the alert is: fail to...

Is there a typical application you are using? I noticed that file size (especially in adobe) can be an issue. If you go to printer settings (start / settings / printers / right click on the 1320 and select properties) choose device settings and the very bottom item is printer memory. I would increase this to like 80mb.... hope this helps
