HP Business Inkjet 2800 Printer will not print 11x17

I just got a new computer and upgraded to Windows 7. Now my HP Business Inkjet 2800dtn won't print custom size documents, specifically 11x17.. I tried in Acrobat as well as Photoshop. I made sure my preferences in the printer were set to the size I want, but it still only prints 8.5 x11.

Usually this happens when the black cartridge is out of ink or when it is damaged.

Many people had a similar problem with the Color Inkjet cp1700 B-size printer.

Another solution that worked for some people was installing the hp deskjet 9800 printer driver.

It appears what you need is a patched .gpd file for the BI 2800.
Try emailing Bob Headrick, who has done these patches. (Thanks Bob)!
Be sure to put Vista and Large Format Printing 11x17 in the subject line.

You'd think between HP and MS, they'd have this working right out of the box.
Did they think people would buy a B-size printer so they could hook it up to Vista and then not want to print mainly B-size documents?
They would have had happier customers if they would have included B-size support but left out A-size!
Amazing!

Good Luck

Unfortunately the page you are trying to reach is not a valid page. As an HP tech I searched internal for a firmware update on that model and there isnt one available.

When trying to print an 11 x 17 word 2010 document that displays properly on the screen only a portion approximately 8.5 x 11 prints out of my 3 month old HP business Inkjet 2800 printer.


It may be that an updated driver is needed; that would be available from the HP website. You should be able to manually set the printer via the HP user software that came with it although it seems that Word should be able to do that automatically.

Error message on HP 2800 business inkjet, message reads 1% ink left on brand new cartridge


Hello,

View the user manual here. http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00449611/c00449611.pdf

go to page 60 and follow the instructions for replacing the ink cartridge, remember to have the printer on when you do.

Then go to page 62 and allign the print head automaticly following the instructions it gives.

This will re-callibrate the ink level on the printer and should read correctly for you.

Thanks

Hp business inkjet 2800 will not print cyan although have replaced cartridge and run all onboard diagnostics. hp troubleshoot shows no problem yet printer will not print


You say you replaced the cartridge but did you replace the print head. If you fully lift the cartridge cover you will see a row of print heads. The Cyan print head is C4811A. Try replacing this.

or

If you feel lucky you can run the print head cleaner diagnostics. The print head may simply be dirty or clogged.
