When printing a Microsoft Word document, the first attempt at printing it will print the first line of the document. The second attempt at printing it will print the first two lines of the document. The third attempt at printing it will print the first three lines of the document. I stopped after that, not wanting to waste anymore paper. I saved the document in .pdf form and printed it again and it printed normally.
Any ideas if there's a way to fix that sort of thing? I already tried unplugging the printer, rebooting the computer, etc, with no change in behavior.

I would go to the epson website and download the latest driver for the printer. More comprehensive printing sofware might require the PCL version of the driver. But for regular printing, just download the latest PS driver and see if that helps
From the program you print the document (MS Word, Acrobat Reader or another one?) go to File and select the Print... or Print Properties option (depending on what program you print from). Then, go through the option and look for an option that says something like "Print Odd Pages" or Print Even Pages". As you're describing the situation, it seems that either the program you use, or the printer control panel, is set to print only odd or only even pages. So you'll need to find this setting and switch to Print All Pages or something along those lines. The labels and wording of these settings depend on the program you want to print from, so expect that you'll need some looking around to do before you find this setting.
There is a workaround for this problem by tricking the printer.
The paper sensor, on my printer model hp4500 seems to only sense the paper at the beggining of the print job.
What I did to trick the printer to print on odd size paper is slide the paper adjuster to 8.5 and put a regular white sheet in. Then put your odd size paper under it. When you print your document set the number of copies to 2 and print.
The printer is going to sense that the paper is correct, and start the job.
Here is the tricky part... once the first 8.5x11 sheet is almost all the way through quickly slide the paper adjuster over to match the size of your odd width paper. The printer should pick up the odd paper and print the second copy. Fool you printa! You should be able to do batches of odd paper size under the first 8.5X11.
I hope this helps.
There is no option in the printer to chose eve or odd pages bout if you print under windows environment you can do that from the able cation example if you use Microsoft world go to file chose printer then chose eve or odd from print comp box
yes..I agree...that line through the letters sounds like something from the font settings in word...do you have True type fonts selected? The landscape issues sound odd too, but I'm sure it's on the word settings side, not the printer. check your computers warranty here 4 FREE
I identified this issue with my Officejet 6110xi All-in-One as firmware corruption. Attempting to install the supplied firmware update gave the error that "no hp device connected to the computer would benefit from it at this time." Attempted to power down the printer using #9 keystroke and got "FULL RESET" message, but problem of extremely slow printing and erratic behavior of the print heads persisted. I solved the problem by putting the printer outside in cold weather for two (2) days. This frequently resets firmwares with software corruption back to their embedded EEPROM state. Hooked the printer back up and worked fine. If cold weather is not available you could try other creative methods of cooling the device, just use a plastic bag and with ideally some drying packets thrown in to prevent excessive moisture buildup in the cold environment. The colder it is the faster the firmware resets.
