Perform a reset of the HP All-in-One

  1. Press the Power button and turn off the HP All-in-One.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  3. Unplug the power cord from the back of the unit.
  4. Wait for 20 seconds.
  5. Plug the power cord back into the unit.
  6. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet.
  7. Turn on the unit by pressing the Power button.
  8. Follow the instructions that display on the HP All-in-One to select the settings.
or if its software related:
the easyest way is right from here click on file on the top left goto page setup in the drop down menu.
paper size should be letter
on the bottom right of that you will see 3 tabs |ok| |cancel| and |printer|
Click on the printer tab and then another window will open and click on properties this will bring you to yet another window but the one you will need to be in to make sure all is correct with your printing software.
ushally there is a default setting there as well this ushally fixes the issues with the software end reseting it back to normal.
accept and then reboot your computer just so all changes are locked in and then plug the printer back in after the hard reset and all your issues should have been soloved.
hope that helps let me know how you made out.

Canon i965 printer


First ensure it is not a cartridge problem, try a replacement.
It does not look like a print head problem, it can be a driver problem or a logic fault in the printer.

When I tryto print 5x7 prints from windows fax viewer my photosmart all in one model C4480 is printing the first 5x7 fine but the second 5x7 also has a small wallet size printed ontop of it


Solution one: Print on heavier paper Try printing on a thicker type of paper. Solution two: Check driver settings If printing on plain paper, make sure the driver settings are set to Plain Paper.
  1. To change the driver settings, click the Properties button in the Print window.
  2. If the Paper Type is not set to Plain paper, click the drop down box and choose More .
  3. Find and click Plain paper , then click OK .
  4. Click OK to return to the Print window and click OK to continue printing.

Won't print black when set for plain paper


Try removing all ink bins except black then you won't have any problems. You should also be able to go into your printer settings and select "Black and White" or "No Color" and it will print ok. Removing the ink trays is the easiest way though.

Canon i9950 prints green on photo paper


I had the same problem. Having checked other websites I came across the following which narrowed down the problem to the Photo Cyan / Photo Magenta ink tanks, and replacing the Photo Magenta one (although it was not empty) has successfully resolved the problem. Eveidently ink from the original one was not flowing and so caused the syan cast. (I experimented by subsequently removing the Cyan one which produced prints with Magenta cast)

TEXT OF POST I FOUND:-

That post is labeled "Cannon (sic) S9000 Print Head" and concerns a greenish hue error in all print quality levels OTHER THAN plain paper. In other words, all output designated as Photo Paper Pro, Glossy, High Resolution Paper, etc., results in output with enormous and unacceptable levels of green hue. All output designated as "Plain Paper" whether the output actually is on plain paper or photo paper pro, turns out well.

This problem is not unique to the S9000, as I experienced it identically with the S820 and predictably can occur in any printer with the six cartridge print head.

It is a frustrating problem because you know that the printer is physically capable of printing WITHOUT the hue (as it proves to you each time you choose a "plain paper" paper setting.)

Troubleshooting by reinstalling and updating the printer drivers, and uninstalling/reinstalling the ZoomBrowser EX, replacing the ink cartridges, and deep cleaning are all blind alleys.

A call to Canon support solved the problem for me with this simple and important revelation:

The Plain Paper setting is unique in its use of only 4 of the 6 cartridges. In the Plain Paper setting, only the black, cyan, magenta and yellow cartridges are utilized. The Photo Magenta and Photo Cyan are not utilized. In all higher resolution settings, i.e., in all other settings, all 6 cartridges are utilized.

It follows that if one's problem disappears when not using these two Photo cartridges (i.e., when printing at the Plain Paper setting), then the problem lies with these cartridges.

(In my case, I'd loaded a plain "Cyan" cartridge in the "Photo Cyan" slot during earlier trouble shooting and had forgotten to replace it with the proper Photo Cyan cartridge.)

Problems with magenta hues would admit of the same solution.

Hope that helps anyone else out there tearing out their hair trying to troubleshoot this. "

Printer print blue instead of black


I have the same problem with my ip 5200, when printing a document in plain black.. I spoke to canon support and they suggested to save the .doc document as a txt file before printing. It works. Not too sure if this uses any colour ink to produce the black.

You can also set the printer on grayscale. However, the printer uses the colour ink to produce black.... hence printing in black & white becomes rather expensive.

If anyone has drivers to fix this problem please let me know...

Copystar 1635 copier/printer set up problem


What the problem sounds like is that the machine and print driver are set to diifferent paper types.
One says plain paper and the other bond paper.
Or something like that, the machine says bond and the printer plain paper.
Chech the size setting and paper orinentation.
Most of the time the paper type is wrong. Also check paper color etc etc. Something between the machine and driver is mismtached.

Tray 1- load plain letter


Linda,

On printer check media/paper type tray 2 or 3 is plain and tray 2/3 is set for letter paper size too, via printer control panel. Also check under paper handling other options for tray 1, also on tray 2 and 3, I think there is a blue little round switch on left should be set as letter not custom.

Some paper types cannot be feed from anywhere else but tray1/bypass ie labels/laminate/card stock.

Check print driver on pc has tray 3 option installed and is not set as default to print to manual bypass/tray 1

light flashing cause printer wants paper type/size that it "thinks" it hasn't got in tray 2/3

If that dont cover it...post back

Too much green


It is unlikely that the sudden appearance of a green hue is due to the printhead or drivers going belly up. If the images on photo paper are OK when using the plain paper setting but have a severe green/blue hue when using the higher photo settings it is likely that the photocyan cartridge has been contaminated with cyan ink. Throw the contaminated PCyan cartridge away and fit a guaranteed photocyan cartridge (OEM or compat). Carry out a deep clean and run several plain papers through on a high photo setting. The green hue will gradually disappear.
