    I am having the same problem... Switch is in KB1 setting, I tried Code+Reset, unplugged it, tried another daisy wheel, and inspected for any visual damage. Anything I'm missing?



    I purchased it refurbished, so all I can think of is that it has some internal bug.



    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I just purchased this machine. When I type the word "test" it prints 8198 on the paper. It is printed totally different letters than the ones I press. It's very frustrating. A cheap typewriter shouldn't be doing this. I should be able to pull it out of the box, plug it in and type away.

Won't print large font in solid black. Only prints outline of letters in black

Try resetting word to factory settings to clear all the settings, Then make a new document and type whatever you want with the font size you require, save then print, see what happens.

When I print a "letter" size document I have to push the green button to make it print. If it is legal it prints automatically to the legal tray.

Obviosly your magazine (Place of taking paper) of the printer is set to legal. The lights is lighting, couse the printer is telling you: You want me to print on letter, but I don have any letter, so please confirm that you want me to print on legal.
In order to avoid this set the printer to all types of paper available.

How do I print envelopes with my hp c6180

There are 2 things that need to be done. 1. You need to make sure your document is set up correctly.
If you use MS Word 2003, go to Tools, then Letters and Mailings, then Envelopes and Labels to create your envelope. For Word 2007/2010, http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-print-envelopes-in-word-2007.html.

2. When you select print go to preferences. From there you will need to set the paper type to envelope. On the application side, you will typically need to make sure your document size is that of an envelope.

I have an HP LaserJet4 and I'm suddenly (as of last evening) getting a 41.3 error code followed by a 13 Paper Jam. I clear the jam, warming up, blank page is ejected, I put the printer back on line,...

41.3 - points to a miss match in the paper tray.
First -
Pull out your paper trays, take the paper out and confirm the guide in the back is set to the correct position. (The little mechanism on the tray which allows you to use different paper types, example letter to A4).

Second -
The other which may have happened it the paper handling was mis-configured on the machine:
- Press the Menu Button on the machine.
- Using the + and - button go to the Printing Menu.
- Select Paper confirm that the paper size is correct for the trays within the machine.
Third -
- Depending on the document you are attempting to print make sure the document type is either adjusted to the type of paper your using or to load the correct paper into the machine. I seen where people send you a legal document and your attempting to print it on letter.
Fourth -
It could be a driver related issue, 98% of the time this is not the case. If all fails above, then attempt this.
Let me know if this helps!
Lastly it could be a driver related issue, however if more than 1 person uses it don't count on it.

Prints blank pages

hi jcruisedirec

Test print shows that there is no problem with he printer.
Do this:

Type just one or two words in a new document and try to print. Before printing, look at the print setup and make sure you have the correct printer name selected.
Also when you go to print, there are few options like:

  • Print All
  • Current page
  • Pages
  • Selection
If you attempt to print "selection" without actually selecting a certain portion of the document, you get blank page.
So first check that the correct name of the printer is selected.
Then test printing one page
Hope this will help you. Good luck.

If you have a server you can do this on the server, the clients will recieve the instructions.

In XP go to printer properties of your 4500 printer. On the General Tab.
Select Printer Preferences, on the tab Paper/Quality change the document size to Letter and paper type to auto select.

(If server) On server do the same in the Tab Advanced under Printing defaults.

Now you can print on Letter (8,5x11), format.

Kind regards,

Printing document

Did you change the top margin setting?

Make sure that the paper size is correct in the printer settings of the control panel when you print. You have to tell it what size paper you are printing on.

Problem Printing word documents

yes..I agree...that line through the letters sounds like something from the font settings in word...do you have True type fonts selected? The landscape issues sound odd too, but I'm sure it's on the word settings side, not the printer.
