HP All-In-One HP C7280 (Ink Jet Color Printer/Scanner/FAX)
When I print a document from the web, I get a blank page in between each page of the document. A 5 pg document for example comes out as 5 printed pages with 5 blank pages in between each of the printed pages.
This only happens when printing web documents. I cannot seem to find any way to turn off this problem.

1. Clean the ink cartridge. (a) Complete the ink cartridge cleaning procedure.
2. Check the media settings. (a) Make sure you select the correct print quality settings in the printer driver for the media loaded in the trays. (b) Make sure the page settings in the printer driver match the page size of media loaded in the tray.
3. There is a blank page in the file. (a) Check the file to make sure there is no blank page. Something on the page is missing or incorrect (b) Check the margin settings Make sure the margin settings for the document do not exceed the printable area of the device.
4. Check the color print settings. (a) Make sure Print in Grayscale is not selected in the print driver.
5. Check the device location and length of USB cable. (a) High electromagnetic fields (such as those generated by USB cables) can sometimes cause slight distortions to printouts. (b) Move the device away from the source of the electromagnetic fields. (c) Also, it is recommended that you use a USB cable that is less than 3 meters (9.8 feet) long to minimize the effects of these electromagnetic fields.
6. Check the ink cartridges. (a) Make sure the correct ink cartridges are installed and the ink cartridges are not low on ink.
Sounds like you're having a problem with the automatic document feeder. The scanner is continuing to scan but the paper is not advancing as it should during the first part of the infeed. Check to see if something is inside retarding the path of the scanned document. Or it could be worn rollers in the ADF.
If it is a color printer, try printing just grayscale or black& white. It is is already set to print just b/w, try printing in color. Basically you may be out of ink. Run the printer utility to clean the heads and see if anything changes. A new set of cartridges should fix the problem, I believe.
Hope this helps...
You might want to start by doing some general print quality troubleshooting, including printing a test page. The test page should give you an indication if you have issues with print cartridges. Also, some printers may not print at all if even one of their cartridges is empty:
The other thing that occurred to me is that your document feeder could be pulling in more than one sheet of paper at a time, this means it would output blank sheets as well. Here's a web page that describes the problem and what to do about it:
