Question about HP Photosmart D5160 InkJet Printer
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.
