Sounds like the print heads are blocked. You should be able to perform a head clean in the printer properties within Windows. Do this a few times and the ink should gradually start to come through. If this doesn't work, it may need a service.
In acrobat go file, print and press advanced. Check print as image. Print the job again and see if you get different results. This does the image processing on the PC. Your document may have a postscript error in it and your device may be set not to print PS errors.
What driver language and version are you using?
Try updating your driver to the newest version, get device status.
You may also wish to try PCL printing for that file. (as a workaround)
Do other files have the same problem? What about when sent to another printer entirely?
Basically, what the printer is trying (not very well) to tell you is that it is not capable of handling the entire two sided printing project automatically - which for reasons that are completely obscure is the default setting for two sided print jobs - way to go HP!
To solve the problem, open up the printer's properties window (or preferences depending on your approach). On the printing shortcuts page, you should find a drop-down menu entitled Print on Both Sides. This drop down should read 'Automatic' (which indicates that the printer will print the first side, flip and reload the paper and print the other side without any intervention - yeah, riight). Simply change this setting to 'Manual' and the problem is solved!
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 188.8.131.52 [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!
