HP PSC 950 problem

The printer keeps saying "paper is too narrow....." and fails to print even though I am using the same 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper that I have always used. I tried finding a solution on the web page but found nothing. I have tried powering off the printer, restarting the computer, reinstalling the print driver and checking/cleaning the ink cartridges. None of these things helped at all. Any advice?

    When I try to make a copy, my HPpsc 950 says :"paper too narrow" and does not go further. I have tried various "solutions" but nothing works. It does not seem to be really a matter of paper size.

    What can I do ?

Look in the printer software on the computer for paper size settings. If that doesn't help go into the settings menu on the printer it self. If you have HP Setup Assistant on your computer, use that to reset up your printer to your computer.

Have error message saying paper is to narrow, load wider paper and press enter, A4 is loaded print options are set to upper tray A4, paper is loaded, cannot clear message


Hello.

That message is indicating that there is a problem with the cartridge alignment.

From HP:There are several reasons why the HP All-in-One may fail to align the cartridges. The most common reason is an ink cartridge that has one of the following problems:
  • One of the ink cartridges is low or out of ink. Black and all three colors must be available.
  • The paper has already been printed on or is colored paper.
  • Protective tape on a new ink cartridge has not been removed.
  • Contacts on the ink cartridge are not meeting the contacts in the carriage correctly.
  • Cartridge is remanufactured or refilled. Refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges may have been damaged during the refilling process or have clogged ink nozzles.
  • The ink cartridge is defective.
Also, use a fresh piece of paper that has never been printed on for the alignment process or the alignment will fail.

Hope this helps.

My HP 2175 PRINTER keeps giving me an error


Check the default paper settings in the printer sofware, if they are correct then problem may be internal.
You dont mention whether it prints OK though.

My hp psc2175 is keep asking "press enter to align cartridges", even though I did many times and it printed many time. I don't know what to do with it.


Read the manual. Or check online. Often when it wants you to align the cartridges, it then wants to scan the page that just printed.

I cannot get my cartridges to align. I keep getting a error message. It print black, but not in color


Have you already solved your problem? There are at least three posts about the same problem and about the PSC 950.
If you solved your problem, please comment, saying how you did it, so you can help others.

If you didn´t solve it, check this HP FAQ:
Solving Print Cartridge Alignment Problems

Note that it says (in the end) that you can bypass the alignment page and use the information from the last successful alignment in your printer, by pressing and hold the Enter button, and then press Setup .

I offered this same suggestion to another poster, who replied it didnn't solve his/her problem. It might work for you though. Please try and give some feedback (even if it is not positive).
