Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

When printing a large document (maybe 30 pages or more), it'll start to print but midway through will act like it can't pick up the paper. We purchased the machine in Sept. of 2008 and have it cleaned regularly, we also just had the pick up rollers changed. Still doing it - any suggestions?

    there's only one tray. Haven't tried different paper, but there's six of us using the same paper and we don't have any problems. Although, we don't all use the same type of printer.

My kodak esp 5210 will not print a test page or a document from my computer.


Hello,
You will only get the calibration page no matter what you try because the printer needs to complete that task before it will let anything else get printed. This cannot be avoided for this model printer! Just follow the instructions as listed on the calibration page (even though you think it may not be needed) and then the printer will act normally!
Good Luck!
Rich Lilja.

Power went off when I tried to print


Would be helpful to know which operating system you are using and whether there where any warning light flashing. For starters review the following solutions.
Printer Does Not Start or Stops During Print Jobs

Inner Cover was open when you started printing.

Close the Inner Cover and press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer. The printer resumes printing.

Inner Cover was opened while printing is in progress.

Close the Inner Cover and press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer.

A page of print data being sent at the time of the error will be erased, so print that page again.

The printer has been printing continuously over a long period.

If the printer has been printing continuously for a long time, the Print Head may overheat. To protect the Print Head, the printer may stop printing at a line break for a period of time and then resume printing.

In this case, interrupt your print session at a convenient time and turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes.

Additionally, if the printer has been printing graphics or photos with intense colors continuously over a period of time, the printer may stop printing to protect the Print Head. In this case, printing will not resume automatically. Turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes.

i_expl.gif Caution

The Print Head and the surrounding area can become extremely hot inside the printer. Never touch the Print Head or nearby components.

Out of paper.

Make sure that paper is loaded in the selected paper source.

Reload paper if no paper is found in the selected paper source (Auto Sheet Feeder or the Cassette).

If the same paper is loaded in the other paper source, you can switch the paper source with the Paper Feed Switch or the printer driver to continue printing.

If both paper sources have run out of paper, confirm the selected paper source and load paper there.

Printing documents with plenty of photographs or illustrations.

When the POWER lamp is flashing green, the printer or the computer is processing data. Printing large data such as photos or graphics takes time for the printer and the computer to process, during which the printer may appear to have stopped operating.

In addition, when printing data that uses a large amount of ink continuously on plain paper, the printer may pause temporarily. In either case, wait until the process is complete.

i_note.gif Note

If you are printing a document with a large printing area or printing multiple copies of a document, printing may pause to allow the ink to dry.

Unable to print to canon IR7200


More than likely their is a problem with the file or that it is too large to process and has gotten stuck in the que on the copier. Go into printer set up and find restart server or clear server - it's ussually at the back end of all the settings. You want to clear the server and restart it. Then try printing a few pages of the file to see if their is an issue with it. If that prints then print half of the file, if it's has a lot of graphics pick a smaller chunk. You can also restart the server through the copiers internal web page - to get to that type the copiers ip address into internet explorer and it should bring it up.

Paper wrinkles at bottom of page when it prints document and sometimes feeds a blank page in between pages.



This is most likely cased by a dirty paper feed path so it will need cleaning and blowing out. Make sure that all the internal paper guides and separators are free of obstruction. Make sure that the fuser area is clean that the internal paper guides are ll in place and operate freely. Also clean it with a vacuum with a soft haired brush tool to avoid any damage. Also fan the paper before using it and do not overload the print paper tray. Also check that the pick up rollers are not work or contaminated with dirt / debris etc. Also make sure that the print tray is not overloaded and make sure that the paper is not to tightly held by the tray side guide.

Also check the rear panel and make sure that all the guides and rollers are moveable and not distorted in any way.

Also check the paper pick up for wear as this will cause additional pages to be collected and fed through the printer. Make sure that you fan the paper before use ant it is of suitable quality and weight.

HP IIIp prints extra blank pages


HI there make sure that the paper tray guides are fully against the paper also try sending the job through the manual feed to see if you get the same problem. If you do not then it maybe that the paper cassette separation pad is worn and will need replacing. If your model has no rubber pad at the front of the cassette then you will have a metal hold over one corner of the paper make sure that when the paper lifts that the paper sits under the silver (Dog Ear) as this acts as a separator.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

Re: How to make a enlarged document


In some printers there is a enlarge document printing support. Like Konica Minolta heavy duty printers or copiers. They support custom paper size in printer properties and also can support a large paper form a paper roll.
You are using inkjet printer so I feel there in no limit of paper size so you can print a custom size paper what you want.
Before printing just go to the properties of the printer and add a new custom size in paper menu then put that size paper into printer hope it’ll work. You must change the paper size from the application from where you are printing that paper.

My printer(hp laser jet 1320) dosen't print correctly in more then 30 pages.


sounds like a memory issues or a windows swap file problem. when printing large docs u need to have some free memory in the computer. Also some printers 2 day used windows memory to print so if your pc only has small amount of free memory it can effect printing out large docs. also with a laptop it shares it memory with the video GPU. so you may need to upgrade your memory in your laptop .
