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.

    Same problem here, was of my time removing blank pages from a report

    I had this same problem. Don't know what the root cause is but, this is what I did to fix it (My system is Windows Vista):

    1. Firstly, when I bought the printer, I installed the software on the CD that came with. This also included some other product software I didn't much need. The software frequently updates itself - this was annoying. The driver version installed is (Printer > Properties > About) is HP7200T.GPD 1.3.2008.

    2. After much searching, I decided I try reinstalling the printer driver. I went to the HP support website and downloaded the HP Photosmart Basic Drivers instead of the Full Feature software.

    After installation, I noticed the driver version installed was HPO72003.GPD 12.7.2008. It appears to be an older driver - weird - but...the problem went away.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a HP C7280, and have the same problem. Before every printing task a blank page comes out. I looked at the HP help pages, and they say that there is a setting that does this. It's for when you're printing lots of documents they are separated with a blank page so it makes it easy to separate the documents. But my printer was set NOT to do this, so the problem is elsewhere. I will now try the solutions mentioned here. Mark

Why does my HP OfficeJet L7780 print blank copy with the regular copy

This is normally caused by a driver issue. Check that your device driver is correct for this particular machine.

Prints blank page first then freezes on the second page.

Blank or partial page printed

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.

4215 all in one office yet. When making a copy

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.

HP 640 Fax series not printing

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...

Blank pages

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:

Correcting Print Quality Problems

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:

Automatic Document Feeder Error

Hopefully the answer to your problem is available in those web pages. Good luck.
