Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I have an HP Photosmart pro b8850 that will not print more than 2 pages at a time with any type of document or photoshop package. following the 2 pagees the "on light" flashes regularly but slowly. I recently upgraded to Photoshop CS5 but I don't think that is the cause. In order to get it to print again, I have to unplug it and restart it. The problem is that it then starts to serive the print heads again.

SOURCE: Can't Print Invitations

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.

SOURCE: HP Photosmart C6180 won't print in photoshop cs2


Make sure that your printer was set as a default printer for your CS2 application, sometimes it just happen that you need to configure the printer settings of the photo shop and select the available printer connected on your computer.

If you can also include please let me know what error messages that appeared on your screen.

Thank you

SOURCE: User manual for HP photosmart

You can download the manual for your printer from this link (click here), Open the link and click "Setup guide" or "user guide" to download and proceed forward with the onscreen instructions. Once you click the manual/guide name/link, it'll open up on the same page, so if you want to download it, click the save menu on the top left corner of the page (save icon button)

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi Admicdf,

Please access the printer utility from the applications folder and this problem should be solved.

If you are unable to access the utility then it means that it's a driver issue and not a printer issue.

If you don't have an extra printer just add another printer as a copy same one and check if switching back and forth in the PS print dialog will allow you into print settings.

Hope this helps ..:) Let me know in case you have any queries.

HP D7260 will not print two sided

This model printer does not have a duplex unit and therefore cannot print double sided printing automatically.
If your printer does not have a duplex unit then the printercannot print double sided pages automatically.
You can print double sided pages but you have to do it one page at a time.
First print Page 1 then place the page back into the paper tray, but turn thepage upside down and the print Page 2.
Then print page 3 on one side then page 4 on the other side and repeat for therest of the document.
I suggest you try a test page first, to get the printing the right way up onboth sides of the page so it reads correctly.

Many printers can detect where the movable partitions in a paper tray are. If they get moved from the "Letter" size mark, the printer will detect that and act accordingly. Make sure if your printer has the movable partition it/they are in the correct position.

Try this.
Right click on the desktop and create a new Text Document, rename it spooler.bat
Be sure your computer is set to display file extensions otherwise you will end up with a file called spooler.bat.txt but the .txt will not be displayed. Right click on the file and select edit. type the following:
net stop spooler
net start spooler

Save the file.
Between print jobs, run this by right clicking on the file and Run as Administrator. Maybe restarting the spooler will work and you will not have to reboot.

If i am understanding your problem correctly it sounds like you are asking if you can print more then one page at a time, yes. You can put 150 pages into the input tray of plain paper and the output tray can hold 50 pages. at the bottom of the printer, it will keep printing and grabbing paper as it needs it. Here is a link to where you can download the user manual:
