Question about HP Photosmart 2710 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Prints extra blank page for every one page of printed material

My officejet is printing a blank page before every printed page. can you help?
How do I correct this? If I am printing a document that is 2 pages long, the printer will spit out 1 blank page, 1 printed page, 1 blank page and then 1 printed page.

I've checked all my printing set up and it's all set to print one page, but it always puts out a blank page before the printed page comes out.

    I have a HP Photosmart 7200 Series Inkjet Printer and it is doing the exact same thing. It spits out a blank page and then prints one page and then a blank page and then it prints a page.

    I have the same problem in which a blank page is delivered for every printed page. It is a huge pain!! The only difference that I see is that my printer is wireless and every computer in the house has the same issue. The commonality between all of the systems is that they are all running Windows Vista. I had an XP laptop and if memory serves, it had the same issue.

    I have Win 8.1and psc 2210 all-in-one, mine did the extra page thing until I disabled "allow manual Duplexing" in "Device settings" in "printer properties" not the regular properties at the bottom of the right click window, but "printer properties" half way up. way up.

    I believe this will solve your problem. It did for me.

    delete your printing device and reinstall,
    when it asks for your driver, let it search for it.
    When your options come up, find "HP" then look for "HP Officejet 7200"
    DO NOT install "HP Photoprinter 7200".

    This should take care of it.
    Good Luck!

    Prints out blank pages

    if it doesn't print anything, there is a problem with the ink cartridges, if it just prints extra blank pages, you need to verify the printer settings have the correct page settings, and that your word processor doesn't add extra pages to your documents.

    HP IIIp prints extra blank pages

    HI there make sure that the paper tray guides are fully against the paper also try sending the job through the manual feed to see if you get the same problem. If you do not then it maybe that the paper cassette separation pad is worn and will need replacing. If your model has no rubber pad at the front of the cassette then you will have a metal hold over one corner of the paper make sure that when the paper lifts that the paper sits under the silver (Dog Ear) as this acts as a separator.

    Hope this helps
    Thanks J
