Prints half page


Printing half a page with an Inkjet machine is not normally a computer issue. So windows 10 would not normally have any effect on the printing for a printer that has been accepted by the Windows 10 Operating System. If there was an issue in the software it would be printing gibberish or not printing at all.

Printing half a page is quite possably something stuck in the printer stopping the ink from getting to that half a page if it is printing down once side but not the other.
Printing half a page being that the top half is printed but not the bottom half (Or the other way around) it could be an air bubble in the feed line which can be cleared with a printhead clean or two.
Printing half a line rather than a full line such as the top half of each letter is clear but the bottom half of each letter is not visable is a blocked printhead. A couple of printhead cleans can also fix this.
Also check to see if the printer is not confused and actually has empty cartridges even if the printer thinks they are full. Brother printers can easily get confused about ink levels. If the cartridges are actually empty, replace them and away it should go again.

Hope that helps

My hp deskjet 6940 inkjet printer doesn't show me level of ink in cartridge


Print a diagnostic page If the steps above have not helped, print and evaluate a diagnostic page to see if the cartridges or the printer is causing the problem.
  1. Make sure the printer is on and loaded with unused, plain, white paper.
  2. Press and hold the Power button and then press the Cancel button. Release both buttons. The diagnostic page prints. Figure 1: Power and Cancel buttonsc00584735.gif 1 - Cancel button 2 - Power button
Step 4: Note which cartridges printed which areas of the diagnostic page You must identify which cartridge printed which part of the diagnostic page, so that if you find defects on the page, you will know which cartridge is the problem. However, you can install different combinations of print cartridges in your printer, and different cartridge combinations print different diagnostic page patterns. Your diagnostic page may not look exactly like the picture below, but the right and left cartridges will print in the same areas of the page no matter which cartridges are installed. Figure 2: Diagnostic page layout (the patterns in each area may look slightly different on your page)c00584715.gif 1 - Printed by the right cartridge 2 - Printed by the left cartridge NOTE: If you are printing in reserve mode (one cartridge is missing), the missing cartridge's area of the diagnostic page will be blank. Step 5: Check ink levels NOTE: If you have installed a refilled or remanufactured ink cartridge, or a cartridge that has been used in another product, the ink level indicator is inaccurate or unavailable. Look in the middle of the diagnostic page. The bars with "E" (for "empty") and "F" (for "full") at each end show the ink levels in the cartridges. As ink is used, the solid color changes to a faded color.

My HP 5850 inkjet has been idle for about four years. I downloaded the drivers for it tonight and attempted a test print and received no response from the unit. Any ideas what could be wrong?


If the printer appears to print but there is no print or images on the paper then most likely the cause is the print head nozzles are blocked with dried ink and inserting new ink cartridges won't fix this problem. You need a new print head.
Print heads are not cheap, you may be better putting your money towards a new printer.

My HP stops printing after accessing any type of webmail or online study courses,e tc. I can send a doc to print and the printer works but it prints blank pages. The ink cartridges are fine.


Step 1:-
First of all go to the printer--> Press setup button on it --> use the Arrow keys --> choose the tools option --> now choose the option Print a test page--> If the test page prints fine--> The printer is fine. No problem in the printer.
Else take out the cartridges and clean it with a lint free cloth. ( Remember when cleaning the cartridges DO not touch the nozzel of the cartridge. Just clean the out side of the cartridge nozzel.)
Step 2:-
Try to change the color of the font on the document you are printing and then try printing. You will get to know if it is actually printing or not. If it is not printing in color also then try this ...!
Click on start--> go to control panel--> go to printers and faxes or printers option and then right click on the printer and choose properties option. Click on the print a test page button.--> Check if it works.
Let me know if it works..!

My HP printer PSC 1510 All-in-One no longer asks me to align my ink cartridges after a change of cartridges. Now, after a system recovery, it prints an alignment page every time I turn it on, whereas...


The only way to stop this is to press the cancel button, just as it tries to print the test page.

Various people have said the printer won't align (calibrate) successfully unless both ink cartridges are more than 50% full, and until it aligns successfully, it will continue to print the test page on start-up.

It is a total waste of ink and paper, so remember to hit the cancel button when you turn it on.

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...


Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.
