SOURCE: hp psc 1315 paper jam

Hi,



. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge inside the all-in-one printer to dissipate before putting your hands or any metal tools inside the chassis.

2.
Pin down the exact location of the jam. The 3 hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and print carriage or between the print carriage and output tray.

3.
Take off the front paper tray if the sheet jammed while still in the front area of the printer. If here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

4.
Pull the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a piece deeper inside the machine.

5.
Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed-tray area and print carriage. Carefully remove the jammed paper.

6.
Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside the printer. You may need to remove the print carriage to get to the jam.

7.
Replace all parts and return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

SOURCE: getting extra 1 inch margin on ''normal'' or ''best'' print

Hi - have you checked the settings for both the document(s) you are trying to print and the defaults for the printer? It could be that there is a default setting that is trying to override what you want to do. I can't think of a reason for it to act differently with different quality of print, unless the ink is running low - that can affect a document printing or not, but again, I would not think to this effect.

Some things to check on -

- Go to the control panel, open the Printers and Faxes folder, and right click on your printer.
Choose PROPERTIES. Make sure everything is set like you want it to be.
(If you are on a network of some kind, someone else's settings could be overriding yours. If you are not on a network, make sure "Do not share this printer" is checked on the sharing tab.)

-try to update the driver. Here is a good place to look -
http://preview.tinyurl.com/6bwuk8

I am assuming you have already actually checked for little scraplettes of paper that might be stuck near a sensor or an ink cartridge. I'd even pop the ink cartridges out and put them back in. Sometimes dust can build up on them if a printer isn't used often, or has been sitting for a long time.

Also, make sure you don't have a setting on your own computer to print out a blank sheet before a printing job. If your printer is actually run through an I/T department at work, they could have it set up by default to kick out a separator sheet to help keep orders separated.

I hope one of these things might work for you! : )

SOURCE: HP Business Inkjet 1200 printer always prints the Alignment Page

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

My HP PSC 1350v prints a test page every time I turn on the printer?


Bet you recently replaced a print cartridge!

That model of printer recalibrates after any cartridge replacement.

Let one of those sheets print out in full. Read what is on the sheet. Place the sheet on the scanner
and press the button that the sheet indicated to be pressed. The printer will go through a alignment
cycle then quit. Once that is finished you should not have to do anything till the next time your change
a print cartridge.

After replacing the ink cartridges ran out I replaced them for new ones and the machine is not telling me that cartridges are empty tried and tried to rereplace them and I still keep getting the same


  1. Press the Menu/Set key.
  2. Press the up or down navigation key until TEST PRINT appears on the LCD.
  3. Press Fax Start. The DCP/MFC begins printing the Print Quality Test Sheet.
  4. By reviewing this Test Sheet, you can determine if the print quality or alignment needs improvement or adjustment.
StepA - Checking the print quality:
  1. The display will read "IS STEP "A" OK?" 1.YES 2. NO.
    Before choosing YES or NO, closely examine the print quality of the four color blocks that are formed by short diagonal lines on the Test Sheet.
    If all lines are clear and visible, press 1 (YES) and proceed to StepB. If you can see missing short lines, press 2 (NO).

  2. The display will then ask you if the print quality is OK for each color. Press 2(NO) for any color with the problem.

  3. The display will then show START CLEANING? 1.YES 2. NO.
    Press 1(YES) and the DCP/MFC will start cleaning the color ink cartridges.

  4. After the cleaning is finished, press Fax Start. The DCP/MFC will print another Print Quality Test Sheet.

  5. If you can see missing short lines in any of the four color blocks press 2 (NO) and repea the quality check and cleaning process. Repeat this procedure at least 5 times if print quality remains a problem. If short lines are still missing after the fifth cleaning and test print, replace the necessary ink cartridges. If the print quality of the 4 color blocks is OK, press 1 (YES).
StepB - Setting the Alignment:
  1. The display will then read "IS STEP "B" OK?".

  2. Examine the 600 DPI and 1200 DPI test prints on the Print Quality Test Sheet. If the number 5 sample of both the 600 DPI and 1200 DPI most closely matches the 0 sample, press 1(YES).
    If one of the other samples is a better match for the 0 sample, press 2 (NO). The display will then prompt you to select the sample that most closely matches the 0 sample for 600 DPI and then 1200 DPI.

  3. Print another Print Quality Test Sheet by following the steps provided at the top of this page and check it.

  4. Press Stop/Exit.

HP PSC 1350 Photo Printing (Glossy Paper) Pront Quality issue


keep checking the HP site for an updated Driver for your printer, but why not use an online photo printing service like Walgreens or Walmart, You can't possibly print photos at home cheaper than they can, and this way you get actual photographs back.
