Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

"Proton" at fixya solved my spooling problem with my HP Photosmart printer. But now I have a new problem: If I turn it off, when I turn it back on it prints another test page. Sometimes 2 or 3. Wasting lots of very expensive ink. I guess I could just leave it on, but that seems like a waste of electricity.

Hi

The Solution Provided from Hp is that the Printed alignment page (like test print page) face down on the scanner and press the "start Scan" button the printer scans and completes the alignment process.

Take the test page ( also called : alignment page ) that always prints when you switch on the printer and place it face down in the scanner.

Then press the scan button on the printer itself.
(this is the button at the bottom of all the buttons on the printer/scanner.)

Make sure that the printer scans the test page.
(sometimes you press the button and it doesn't scan )
(it makes a scanning noise when scanning successfully )


Then it will stop printing the test page ( alignment page ) ever again.

Welcome to FixYa!

Try to reset the printer by doing the following;

1. Turn ON the printer.
2. Disconnect the USB printer cable at the back of your printer while the printer is ON.
3. Remove the cartridge.
4. Wait for the "Insert Cartridges" message to display on the message screen of the printer.
(You can skip this if your printer does not have this feature.)
5. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
6. Wait for 1 minute.
7. Reconnect the power cord.
8. If the printer does not turn on, use the power button to turn it on.
9. Reinsert the cartridges.
10. If the printer prompts you to print a calibration page or requests for a cartridge alignment, please do so.
11. Reconnect back the USB printer cable and try to print.

I hope that this would be helpful to you, thank you for usng FixYa!

0xc18a0206 error on hp photosmart printer


Fro our Fixya community:

Try holding down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons all at once. While holding them down, press the On button to power it off (You may need another person if you lack large, coordinated hands). Turn it back on while still holding the other buttons down. You will notice it turn itself off before "booting" fully. After it turns itself off, you can finally let go of those buttons and turn it back on normally. This will force a reset and system maintenance.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Photosmart 2575 printer is offline - won't print


Good Day,

One thing you can try instead of deleting the doucment writer is to change the default printer. You can do this by right-clicking on the HP printer icon and selecting "set as default" from the drop down box. Also try turning the printer off and back on aswell as restaring the computer if you have'nt already. Did that printer ever work from that computer? How is it wired, by "switcher" do you mean a shared printer through you network(was printer sharing configured properly), or an A-B printer switch. Please clarify

Hope this helps for now

Photosmart 2575 printer is offline - won't print


Hey jonboy - You do not want to delete it. It is automatically installed with Vista. In simple terms, you know when you go to print something and it asks you questions like print all pages, print page 1, etc? Well XPS basically is there for so when you go to print, you have the option of printing to a file instead of paper. You've always had that option ( whether or not you knew it) but this is just a new way of doing it and that's why it's listed under printers. It's sort of like a virtual printer. I'll say no more about that and just hope you understood what I said. As far as the other printer, it's already selected as default, go back in where you found the printer status, right click on your Photosmart and click on use online. That should do the trick.
I hope you understood this stuff. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you still have a problem, DON'T RATE it yet just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Hi,

I suspect that the Printer spool service is not communicating efficiently with the Drivers.Just follow the steps below.The problem will be resolved.


1.Right click on MY computer ->Properties->Hardware->Device manager.

2.You will get Device manager window popping out.

3.Scroll down to "Universal Serial BUS controllers".Click on the (+) sign.

4.Check for the "USB Composite Device" and right click on it, click Uninstall.(IMPORTANT NOTE:WE HAVE TO UNINSTALL THE PRINTER'S USB COMPOSITE DEVICE, TO KNOW WHETHER IS THE PRINTER'S USB COMPOSITE DEVICE, RIGHT CLICK ON USB COMPOSITE DEVICE AND PROPERTIES,look for wat location says, Eg -LOCATION : HP PHOTOSMART C3100)

5.Disconnect the USB and reboot the PC.

6.Connect the USB after reboot, you will get popup "Found new hardware".Then the Drivers will be installed Automatically.

Cheers
