Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

2 Answers

I have a HP Photosmart D5160 Printer. I just got a new computer and the printer prints, but I am now unable to print invitations. I can set the margins on my computer but I am unable to set the margins on the printer. I used to be able to do all sizes of invitations, but now cannot. When it prints, it will only print in the center of a full size paper.

    I tried to update the software but the comment was "page not found"

    I read some of the other comments, but I have a HP D5160..not the one that was mentioned.

    Up until I changed computers, I was able to print excellent quality photos as well as invitations of all sizes on this printer. Can I download another HP printer that would permit me to print everything as before? I used to have a HP 720C that I was able to print invitations with... thanks for any help you can give.

I found a similar post on en.allexperts.com:
http://en.allexperts.com/q/Printer-mechanical-problems-1024/2008/5/HP-3150-print-invitations.htm
One review in TestFreaks.com said this:
This is why I have put off owning a printer for so long. They're expensive and/or ****. After needing something more affordable than the R260, I am trying the D5160. Well, it's nothing short of disappointing & frustrating so far. I can't get my prints to fit on the page in any quality less than "normal". The settings are also not keeping reliably, nor can I set a default print mode.
I couldn't find any reported "fixes", but this procedure offered by HP might help:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02191087&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1155996&tmp_track_link=ot_search
Sometimes problems like this are conflicts between windows and printers, and drivers can be modified to correct them, so you really never know until you update a driver.
I would contact HP and see if they have a solution or workaround for this situation.
Also, the earlier blog said they could adjust some settings in "normal" print mode, so you might try that.
Here's HP's Support site:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

Hp Photosmart D5160 Printer for Linux

For Mac Drivers, please visit here and follow the instructions given there.

It would be much easier for you and for me if you had mentioned the Operating System installed on your computer where you are going to install the printer. Anyway, select the suitable link for your operating system.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Problem of my printer photosmart d5160


I have the exact same printer. Struggled for hours with it, until I learned it's ways. If you have good cartridges in and purge your print buffer from your computer, then 'gently but firmly' slam the top cover.
I don't see sensors, etc that detect it being up, but I just closed mine, had ! blinking, etc. Then gently 'slammed' the top cover and it reset and worked great.
