I would take look at printer settings to see if this is an optional feature; some printers I've had offered to insert a 'separator sheet' which sounds a lot like your 'problem.'

Open the Control Panel, find and open (whatever your Win version has named it) the printer function, find the D5160 (there might be others listed), right-click on it, select Properties from the menu and go through the tabs to see if you find functions listed that might affect your wasted sheet problem.

If you find nothing there, I suggest you check to see if there is a more current driver you can install.
If not, UNinstall the current driver, shut down your system leaving the printer on, turn your system back on which should force Windows to reinstall the existing driver.

That unwanted form feed you are getting only requires a couple of bits sent to the printer to activate.

The printer will print out the test page but it will not actually print anything on a paper whenever i hit print, it just runs a piece of paper through the printer blank


If test pages are working but print jobs aren't, it's almost always a driver issue.
Uninstall and reinstall the printer driver.
If it's still not working, and you're running windows 7, turn off the bidirectional communication mode.
post a reply here if you need further help or if that doesn't work.

I have an HP C7280 AIO printer. Everytime I print, it always form feeds a blank page bewteen each printed page (print page 1, form feed a blank page, print page 2, form feed a blank page, and so on).


Generally, there are printer set up programs that will let you chose to put a blank sheet or to not do that. If you have a disk or manual, look for the set up utility and go thru the tabs to find paper handling or something similar to that. There should be a check box you can clear to stop the blank page.

I hope that this information was helpful. Have a great day.

It has printed a checksheet-- with the birds at the bottom. I recently installed new cartridges. It acknowledges a print command by running a sheet a paper through--but it remains blank.


Uninstall and re-install the software for the printer and see if that changes anything. AND also, you say it will always produce a checksheet but anything else is blank? Can you do a simple printer test page? This way you will know if the colors are working.

P3150 printer runs but doesn't print


Are you saying that the printer prints in B&W but not in color, or only that it will print a test page with B&W? It might be that the color ink cartridge is dry.

Allignment failure for photosmart 3210xi


Sounds like your printer could use a bit of cleaning and maintenance, please contact your local HP support for help.

Also, if you use non-original ink for your printer, the result will anything else than "Always clear, always sharp"...
