Go to printer icon in control panel, click to open, right click printer and you will see properties. Click check your ports, Top ports are usually parallel, New printers use CPU ports. Try giving it a USB port if you are using a USB cable. Did your printer print on set up??? If you have the printer disc, delete this printer and go throught the re install, remember, many new HP do not want you to plug in printer till the programs ask.. Good luck

This happens a lot with HP printers. I usually just delete and reinstall the printer. if your running windows 7, just click add printer and it will find it and install the drivers automatically.

Does not print


Click Start/Control Panel and look the Printer within the control panel. Open it and make sure you don't have the same printer installed more than once on your system. If you do then you can get the system confused and the queue backed up if you print to one that is not ready. If you have more than one then delete it.

Also open the printer properties and make sure you are using the right connection such as USB, LPT1, Wireless, TCPIP (Network).

When you open a document and get ready to print, rather than hit the print icon, click File, then select Print. When the print window opens you can click the drop down arrow on the Name to see if the same printer is installed more than once. You can also get to the printer properties this way.

If you have a printer icon at the bottom right near the time on your screen open it and delete all the documents that are backed up waiting to print.

I have a hp photosmart c4280 and whenever i print it says margins are incorrect. how do i set them correctly so i can print documents.


Check the paper size at the printer properties on control panel.
You may be trying to print an A4 document to a printer configured to print on Letter size paper.
The document paper size should match the printer's paper size deffinition.

The Print Diagnostic Utility diagnoses and resolves common printing problems and communication problems, including:

If you prefer, you can skip this information and go directly to downloading the tool .

  • Connectivity :
    • USB: Ensures that the USB connection from your computer to the HP product is working correctly.
    • Network: Ensures that the network connection between your computer and your network is working correctly. If the tool detects a network connectivity problem, you will be prompted to run the HP Network Diagnostic Utility for better results.
  • Spooler : Automatically restarts the print spooler, which sends print jobs from the computer to the product, if it has been stopped.
  • Online status : Checks if the product has been paused or set to offline, and then sets the status back to online if necessary.
  • Device manager : Checks for problems in Device Manager that would prevent printing.
  • Print queue : Checks for and clears pending print jobs in the print queue (a log of print jobs waiting to print).
  • Port : Checks the port settings for the HP product.
  • Driver : Checks for alternate-driver settings.
  • Conflicts : Checks for conflicts with other drivers, such as other printer brands.
  • Default printer : Checks the default printer setting and prompts to select the HP product as default (optional).

My hp printer is stuck on pause. I need free help to get it off of pause. Thank you. I tried run and tried to create a notebook but that did not really work out very well. Or else I didn't do it very well....


I went to Control Panel, then Hardware and Sound, then Printers, then double clicked on the word "Paused" under my printer's status and clicked "Resume Printing" -which worked for me when my HP printer was stuck.

PRINTING PROBLEMS


Maybe I can help;
I'll assume you have a windows operating system.
There are two ways to print, one is hitting the print icon wherever that may be in the current program and the second is to use the longer method of going to: file/print.. which takes to you to the print setup box.
This may be where you need to set the print properties for this particular document.
The first method uses whatever your default printing setup is.. such as which printer, portrait mode,
draft or best quality....etc.

If you always use the same print setup you can set this in; start/settings/control panel/printers/
Your default printer will have a check next to it.
Hope this helps

Try to delete unnecessary files on your computer, coz your computer is low in memory. open up your printer if theres a pending document then try to clean or empty it. boot your pc. Then try to print your document.
