Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

My printer is printing test pages fine, but when I try to print anything else, it comes out blank. I have an HP Photosmart 7760. It acts as though it is going to print and then the entire sheet is kicked out.

Hello.

If there are no jobs in the print queue, be certain that your USB cable is snug.

If still a problem and there are jobs in the print queue, go to Printers and Faxes and delete your printer icon.

Note: Here's how to delete a printer icon in Windows 7:

1. Open Printers by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Printers.
2. Right-click the printer that you want to remove, and then click Delete.

If you can't delete the printer, right-click it again, click Run as administrator, and then click Delete. Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.



Disconnect the USB cable.

Restart your computer.

Reconnect the USB to your computer.

Your computer should see your printer. Install the printer driver.

If still a problem, either your USB port on your PC, or the USB printer cable is probably faulty.

Hope this helps.

My HP C4780 PRINTER WILL PRINT A TEST PAGE BUT NOTHING ELSE. How do I get it to print?


Check the settings in Windows Print Manager.

Make sure that the paper quality matches what is in the printer. If set to glossy, minimal ink is deposited on the page. Also, check the print quality - draft quality provides a minimal amount of ink as well.

Have tried printing from computer and tried printing test page from printer. both times the pages come out blank.. how do I check the toner levels in printer. thank you


The draw back of inkjet technology printers are, if it is not using quite long period of time,cartridge nozzles will dry up, result printer will act just like a printing some thing but nothing will come on paper(blank page) even ink levels are showing full.
Try to recover the both cartridges through 'clean print cartridge' process from the system,if not better consult cartridge re-filler to clean the nozzles..Replace new cartridges if above said methods are not worked out.

I replaced a #57 cartridge in my Hp 7760, this AM.Since, it will not run a test/allignment page, nor run anything on paper. Iput the old #57 cartridge back in, rechecked all the cables, still win't print...


Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.

Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.

Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Photosmart 7960 prints blank documents; prints from internet ok


If it can print from the internet, it is working properly. I would disconnect the printer from the computer, uninstall the drivers and reboot twice. Reinstall the drivers and hook up the printer when instructed. Make sure that you select this as the default printer. (unless, of course, you have another as default)

Slow printing


Even though the printer doesn't call for new ink, remove or replace the color cartridge. First I removed the color and the test page printed at full speed. I then put in a new color cartridge and it again worked full speed. I believe the problem was somewhere in the half used color cartridge. Hope this solves your problem.

Prints extra blank page for every one page of printed material


Ok, I too have HP Photosmart 7280 and it was spit'g out a blank page after each print page.
I went into the Control Panel/Printers - Right click on the HP Photosmart 7200 series icon and choose delete. Don't worry...just delete it.
Right above (Vista) click on Add a Printer - it's going to ask you if you want to add a local printer which is connected via USB connection or if you are set up wireless then choose Network
It will find your printer click on the printer hit next - then this is the most important step
It will ask you to find the manufacturer it shows Hewlett-Packard and underneath it shows HP - Do not click on HP - you'll have the same problem with that driver - choose Hewlett-Packard and find this driver HP Photosmart C7200 series Version 61.71.244.0 [3/23/07]
Hopefully they are all digitally signed with this information.
Click on that driver and click next - then click on replace the current driver and click next.
Print a test page and problem should be solved. Hope it helped!

My photosmart 7762 will not print from the internet


The internet provider should not have anything to do with this. If by chance they installed some software when you switched, try uninstalling it and then try printing. It does sound like a driver issue though and i would have asked you to reinstall the driver. If by chance this happened after updating to a newer driver for your printer, try an older one off of the disc that came with your computer. Good luck!
