SOURCE: Scanning Problems

I would first make sure that you have latest driver update. MS Word is very particular about how it reads things back in. I would try saving the scan as a text file or PDF instead and then open them in Word. Hope this helps!

    SOURCE: mirror effect on hp 2420 PCL6 (network)

    Try downloading the Postscript driver instead of the PCL6 driver. There have been a lot of issues in the PCL driver. You might also try the universal driver. Both are list and can be downloaded from HP's website under the support icon.

    Hope that helps you.

    My HP D2560 does not print photos properly. Drawings are ok but photos are blurry, colours are weird. I changed the settings to photo printing, no luck. Any idea?

    It does not appear in the user manual and looking on some forums, it will only put the date on the print and not saved with the image - to print the image with date you can do it with a docking station or some additional details - but cant find the full details

    Adobe PDF reader tends to print webdings/wingdings in its version 8 incarnation. Download FOXIT reader free from and try to print your document from that instead of Adobe. This nearly always fixes the problem. antosarmy

    HP Color laser jet 4700n 49.3048 service error

    The problem is usually caused by printing a PDF file with fonts/page size/ page formating errors which will cause the printer to display the 49.3048 error. The only way to use the printer is to POR or recycle the power and delete the print job from the server or spooling device and cancel it on the printer before the offending command is issued to the printer again. You can try updating the firmware to the latest version 46.140.5 from the HP website. MIke L.

    Able to print documents on HPc4385, but cannot print photos

    When you were connected with a USB cable was it connected to the computer your using as local? Are you using a wirless print server? Possible corrections are in the properties of your print setup. You can change the spooling properties to print immediately to require less memory.

    Wingdings prints on Brother HL2170W

    When printing using Terminal Server, the print driver needs to be installed on the server itself. If you have a printer that doesn't have the driver installed on the server, it will either not print at all or it will use the "fallback driver", which is something set by the person who administers the server. Thus, it may be trying to use an HP driver to print to a Brother printer, which won't work. Ask the administrator to install the Brother driver on the server and it should work at that point.

    Try this !
    in the software application you are printing from
    Open the document that you want to print.
    2. On the File menu, click Print, and then click Setup, Properties, or Preferences.

    Look for a Best Mode Setting
    this printer has several modes one being draft mode, another one best mode
    in best mode the printer uses memory to render the photo you are trying to print.
    Note that in this mode, printing takes
    longer and more memory is required from your computer.
    from page 17 of the hp k5400 user manual

    Also you may have to increase the virtual memory of the windows pc to allow the computers hard drive to allocate more hard drive memory to the memory swap file if the computer's ram is not enough to print the photo.
    It is a setting in the control panel under system - performance.
