    my problem is the same. i print something and i get a blank page first then i get what i printed. the suggested solution seems a bit muchand also very general. i just reinstalled everything and would rather have a more specific solution to this specific problem.

    Same exact problem

    I used this printer without problem with Windows XP as the OS. After I installed Vista the printer uses two pages (one blank) for every printed page.

    OS Vista Home, blank page feed when printing. Didn't happen when first installed.  Does this from any of three Vista computers. All are Vista, no other OS's in network.  Have run out of tricks

I went to the HP online help chat. I was told to take out all the cartridges, wipe a moist cotton cloth on the copper dots on the back of each. Let them dry a minute. Unplug printer cable, and USB cable (if it's not wireless), and unplug from wall. Then hold in power button for 60 seconds. Then I uninstalled HP software and reinstalled. Then I plugged back in the printer cable, and now there are no blank pages. It was quite an ordeal chatting with the rep because it took FOREVER between messages, but all is well now.

Every time I print, the printer feeds an extra blank page after every printed page. How do I get it to stop this?

I have an HP D7360 Photosmart that has been doing the exact same thing. This has been driving me crazy, especially when I have to print a lot of pictures at once or a long report.
After uninstalling and reinstalling the printer a dozen times, installing every possible driver I could find for it, and even swapping out the USB cable (who knows...stranger things have been the cause of problems!!), I just found the fix for this.
Go to the Properties page of the printer (for mine, I open the printer, click "Printer", then select "Properties"), then go to the Advanced tab. At the bottom are a few checkboxes, one of them being "Enable advanced printing features". I unchecked this and do not have the problem with the extra page.
I am not really sure, at this point, what else may be turned off, but just printed a test page and more blank page came out right after it.
Hope this helps you and that the "advanced printing features" aren't something that negatively impacts your and my ability to print quality pictures and documents.
I love this printer otherwise. Amazing picture quality!!!

How to load 5x7 photo paper into hp photosmart D7460 ??

Simply set the page layout option to select from printer. Place the cut & proper sized paper in the inlet tray, adjust the sliders so that they just rest lightly against the edge of the paper. Remember only one slider moves and the other one remains fixed to one edge. Click print preview. You might get a message saying paper orientation is not right...should I adjust the printer automatically, click yes and behold it will print in Portrait or landscape mode depending on the matter. If it warns that output does not fit on the media(paper) then select fit to page option.....sodeep
