Here is where you can find the manual, software, updated drivers and everything else you need. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=2510771&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=6&submit.x=7&lang=en&cc=us

As far as the other, there is an option when you go to print to save it to a file if you want. Make sure this is not selected. Also check manual about saving to acrobat file (pdf) and check in pdf instructions. Just making sure that save to file is not selected should correct the problem.

I have a HP Deskjet D4260 and when i print something using HP Deskjet D4200 series its black and white. I need the pictures to be in color


U must be using HP74, 75 cartridge for your printer.

There are few reasons you are getting black and white (gray)...for printing job.

1. No color ink.
- If you are out of color ink.. that's what it happens.
- check your ink level through control panel.

2. Printer set up. (I think this is pretty much the reason you are not getting color)
- First, check your printer setting.
If they are on gray scale mode, pls chang to color.
How? when you click the print (through file manu), there are option for control panel on your screen. Click that option and will see some detail option you can choose from size, print quality.
Among the print quality option, pls choose, color mode instead of gray mode. That's it.

If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK".
Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.
For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video.
And will see how easy ink refill can be done.

Hp officejet pro won't print pdf files


In order to print PDF file format grab CutePDF.
  • Visit cutepdf.com . Click "Free Download." A box will appear asking, "Do you want to run or save this file?" Answer with "Save." The download will begin. Download Ghostscript (see link in Resources). Look for "You Can Get the Free GPL Ghostscript 8.15 Here" sentence and click "Here." This download is required for the CutePDF program. Save the GPL Ghostscript file to your desktop.
  • Double click the "CuteWriter" icon on your desktop once your downloads are complete. Click "Next" on the Setup - CutePDF Writer screen. Click "I Accept the Agreement" on the License Agreement screen. Click "Install." The CutePDF setup will run. Click "No" to the CutePDF Writer Setup box that appears next that asks "Would You Like to Download the Converter?" You have already downloaded the converter. Once the setup is complete, a Readme.htm file will appear in your Internet browser. Read this file or print it.
  • Double click the "Converter" icon on your desktop (it will have a black "G" as its icon). Click "Setup" on the right side of the WinZip Self-Extractor converter.exe box. Another box will appear and then disappear. The setup is complete, and CutePDF is ready for use. CutePDF installs itself as a printer, and this allows any Windows program to create a PDF.
  • Open any Windows application like Microsoft Word or Excel. Open any document you would like to convert to a PDF file.


  • Click File > Print. Select "CutePDF Writer" from the Name List in the printer box. Click "Properties." Choose your "Layout" and decided how you want your page to print. Click "Paper / Quality" and "Color."
  • Click Advanced > Page Size. Click "Print Quality" and change the DPI. The bigger the DPI, the larger the file size of the PDF will be. If you are creating a PDF to be emailed, choose 72 DPI or 144 DPI. If you are printing this PDF, choose 300 or 600 DPI. If sending the file to a commercial printer, choose 600 or 1,200 DPI. For most applications, just adjust the DPI setting and leave the other settings alone.

  • Click OK > OK > OK. A "Save As" box will appear. Enter a filename for your PDF file and select the directory you would like to save the file to. Click "Save." Your PDF is done.

    How do you save files as a .pdf rather than a .tif


    You need to install a PDF print driver. When you print, select the PDF printer and then it will save it as a PDF file.
    Here are a few WEB sites for PDF print drivers :-

    Hi , my printer hp deskjet d4260 does not print. There is ink and paper in the printer but whenever i try to print something it doesnt work. When i did chang the ink it still printed the paper for...


    1. goto control panel -> printers.
    2. delete the unnecessary printers including your D4260.
    3. Use the driver cd which came along with your printer and reinstall all the software and drivers again.
    4. Now you should be able to print without any problem because in this way all the driver conflict or corrupt printer files will be fixed.

    I hope this is helpful to you
    thanks

    I try to print something and it takes me to a page that says save as xps file, but every time i hit save, nothing happens!


    Do you have your printer properly installed in the system?

    Go to control panel, printers, and see what printers you have installed. Among them there will be a "virtual" printer called "Microsoft XPS writer" - it is a special "printer" that saves your document in a special type of file. Not very useful in your case.

    Do you see any other printers apart from the above mentioned? If so, then most probably the "XPS writer" is set as default printer, and you have to select the actual printer you have (I presume it will be HP Deskjet D4260, as in the topic), right-click it and choose "set as default". Then you should be able to print OK from whichever application you want to print.
    Additonally, when you select File->Print from that application's menu, it will show you a window, where the chosen printer is specified; you can always open the drop-down list of printers there and select a different one (your actual printer).

    If there are no other printers on the list apart from the XPS writer, it means that your printer is not installed in the system, and you have to install the driver from a CD that came with the printer. Or if you don't have the CD, go to the HP website, download and install the driver for your printer.

    Good luck, and please come back with a testimonial if helped.

    Scan multiple pages to one file


    Hi Clint...

    There are several programs available for downloading that work as print to pdf... some free some not. You can try pdf creator it's free and works well for me, the download isn't very long and the install is super easy.

    after you install the program, you should see a pdf printer in your printer selections. You don't want to try to save your file, you have to select print and then select the pdf print to file option in your printer selection. Print the first file to a file you create to save it as a pdf. for the subsequent files you will need to choose Append to an existing pdf file and select the file you have created.

    Test the file to see that both of your scans are in there and that they are in the order you want them to be in. If all that works find, you can follow the same procedure with each scanned page and they should all end up in one file.

    the pdf print to file is also a great way to save webpages in one single file :)

    hope that helps!

    Hi! I want to align my printing cartridges on my HP Deskjet 4260 and have forgotten how. Can you help?


    Hey there and welcome to FixYa:

    In order to align your print cartridges, all you need to do is:

    1. load some letter sized paper in the paper tray

    2. open the printer software that came with your printer

    3. Click FILE, then PRINT

    4. next, go ahead and click PROPERTIES (sometimes labeled PREFERENCES)

    5. click the FEATURES tab, and then click the PRINTER SERVICES button. This opens up the printer toolbox.

    6. Click ALIGN THE PRINT CARTRIDGES

    7. Click ALIGN, and then follow the onscreen instructions.

    This will print a test page that aligns that printer cartridges and calibrates the printer. Easy, huh?

    Here is the manual
    , and if you need anything else don't hesitate to ask!

    Happy Holidays,

    Unable to print in pdf format


    Check your printer preferences and settings. Also you need to have installed in your computer Adobe Acrobat to printer PDF documents.
