Question about HP Photosmart D7160 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My HP D7160 inkjet printer prints 3 pages every time I reboot my system. It prints a few characters of gibberish at the top of each of the pages. This is extremely annoying, particularly when I am performing software upgrades, as I often end up with a stack of useless paper. -John

Open its directory by click in the tray system ..(right where the programs are opened) ..just right click on the printer ..and choose to go in the printer folder..there it will be the issue you are talking ..the previous jobs and errors..just try to eliminate by click-right on them and delete ..
so ..make a habit to check this folder for remaining jobs that loops and may cause issues..if they remain there and are not deleted..

My printer only prints out part of a page and spits it out and then prints out several pages with a few lines of gibberish on each. The printer is connected directly to the computer so it's not a wireless...


Vista has died, so you won't get updates. You could install Linux to get a modern operating system. The drivers are included. However, the problem might be in the printer since it's intermittent. It picks up a glitch and from there on it's all gibberish. Try wireless and see if that works.

How do you open HP Photosmart D7360 Printer case? We had a paper jam and part of the page ripped and we can't find it. I think it may be stuck under the print head.


Hold the bottom base of the printer with one hand, grasp the top cover under the HP logo, and pull upward with the other hand.

Printer keeps printing one line gibberish and then scrolls on


1) click the printer icon in the tasktray to open the printer tasks and delete any active print jobs, and wait for the task to be deleted.

2) power off the printer and power it back on that should clear it.

3) you may need to power it on and off more than once.
