Paper quality is all about price and function. You're not going to want a recycled sheet with some patten or variant in it if you're printing out legal documents. On the other hand if you're printing out sketches from your kids you probably don't need more than a general/recycled ****. General use reams run from 3-10$, depending on where you're looking and how much you care about it.

Glossy paper is best for printing photos, but those also tend to work best in specialized 'photo printers'. So now we're in the zone of 'what paper does your printer work best with', another question to consider. I use an older monochrome laser printer, salvaged from a company of old (rest in peace). It prints in black, end of story. I use general reams (cheap stuff) and the backs of spam mail that comes to my door for every day, but I also have Legal quality paper for, say, writing angry letters to my local school board.

See the difference in the descriptions and price point? Choice one is 'blah blah blah..it's paper. buy it.' and in choice two it's a lot more clear that they've made something they care about.
So you should think about your needs and how much you care (or don't) then apply that much money to the problem.
Best of luck! William

My printer is printing very slow


Are you printing images or text? Your printer, what you are printing, and the paper you are using may each contribute to this effect. Try the following instructions and see if you can change the print quality and paper type to something that prints more quickly.
To select a print speed or quality
  1. Make sure you have paper loaded in the input tray.
  2. On the File menu in your software application, click Print.
  3. Make sure the HP All-in-One is the selected printer.
  4. Click the button that opens the Properties dialog box.
  5. Depending on your software application, this button might be called Properties, Options, Printer Setup, Printer, or Preferences.
  6. Click the Features tab.
  7. In the Print Quality drop-down list, select the appropriate quality setting for your project.
  8. NOTE: To view the maximum dpi that the HP All-in-One will print, click Resolution.
  9. In the Paper Type drop-down list, select the type of paper that you have loaded.

My HP PRINTER,DESKJET F4180 is printing faintly even though there is a lot of ink


I presume that you have tried with different cartridges to rule out the possibility of cartridge fault and you are not printing in draft mode.

Clean the electrical contacts on the cartirdges and carriage.

The steel rod, on which the carriage moves, is set too far away from the paper. Open the printer's top cover and loosen the lock screw of the brackets holding the rod by its ends. Rotate these brackets a few degrees to lower the print carriage towards the paper to obtain desired printing. The screws to tightened.

Paper jams with card stock


Lubricate the print head shaft. Not too much as it will collect dust.

My HP F4180 printer jams with 220gsm card


The HP F4180 is only rated to 200gsm for card. You can do slightly thicker 236gsm for photo paper.

Our printer is printing too slow more slow than before


Perhaps someone changed the print quality setting to a higher one, or chose a different media (paper) type in the printer preferences?
If you choose standard paper and standard quality (or something to that effect) does it speed up?
When you choose enhanced/photo quality and special photo paper, the printer will print up to 8 times slower, putting much more and much finer dots on the paper, resulting in indeed much higher print quality - but you don't always need that kind of quality, like when you print documents.

Hp F4180 No copy to Plain paper


If you just replaced the ink cartridges, make sure you've removed the plastic tabs that cover where the ink shoots out. If they are old cartridges, make sure that the nozles haven't dried up. Remove the cartridges and dab a cloth (one you don't mind staining) where the ink shoots out, if all the colours show up, it's clear. If you notice very little colour, or none at all, try dampening the cloth and wiping down the cartridges to promote inkflow through the nozles. Hope this helps.

Im looking for hp deskjet f4180 drives and i need to download them .


usually going to HP.com works.

1) click on "Support and Drivers" at the top
2) in 'Step 1' select 'download drivers'
3) in 'Step 2' type in the model number you're looking for. In your case it would be "Deskjet f4180"
4) on the next page, choose the operating system you're running.
5) on the next page, choose the basic driver.
6) on the next page, click on the little 'Download Only" button. This will start the download process. Personally I would choose the 'Run" feature. This runs the software off HP's website. That way you're not downloading the software and storing it on your computer. This will also start the setup process for the drivers.

Hope this works. Good luck!

Hp deskjet d2360


Hi

Yes the HP Deskjet D2360 will print pics. If you want to print photo quality, make sure your ink cartridges are in good shape and obtain photo quality paper.

You can actually print pictures on almost all printer paper but if you want a good result, I would suggest you look online for inkjet photo A4 photo paper.

Paper can be obtained in a number of finishes. For example Glossy, Silk, Matt and so on. If you just want reasonable quality for a school project or something, then a good quality non photo paper may be good enough for you.

Paper also comes in different thickness or weights. This is determined by the paper's GSM. For example: 80gsm is normal photocopier paper. A good quality photo paper would be 140gsm or 160gsm. When looking for paper online you'll see the GSM shown. It really is your personal choice. There are heaps of suppliers on the internet. Amazon do a good range.

You can also set your printer for various levels of quality. A rule of thumb is, the bettter the quality, the more ink you will use.

If you want to find out more about your printer, visit http.www.hp.com then look for your particular model.

Hope this helps.
