My printer prints triple everything photosmart 7150


In the properties of the printer on your computer, you probably have it set to 3 copies. Go to devices and printers and open up the printer properties. Probably under the "advanced tab" you will find a setting for number of copies. Let me know if you are having problems finding the printer properties.

I cannot find a toolbox for the hp 7150 printer anywhere on my computer! help! I need to clean print heads and do an alignment page.


That software can be installed from the CD-ROM that came with the printer.

Or, from the manufacturer's web-site:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=72881

download the device-drivers for your printer and your operating system, and install the software.

Only prints on one side


Hi, You have to remove the Catdriges from the printer and clean both catdriges and the roller. This might sort your problem. Secondly before printing check the pagesetup of the particular file.

HP photosmart 7150 - looks like it's printing - pages blank


In my case, reinstalling didn't help at all.
In Control Panel->System->Advanced Properties->Performance, enabling DEP only for the essential windows services solved the problem.

Printer Settings


Have you done so from within "Control Panel" -> "Printers" and right clicking properties on your printer icon? doing it from within a "print" dialog or word processor will set it up only for that specific print.
Make sure you are set up correctly on all tabs (some settings might appear twice in two different dialogs) and re-save your profile.
Lastly, make sure you are indeed printing to the printer you have just set. You might have a different printer icon set as the default spooler.
