I have a printer that has suddenly decided to print backwards/upsidedown. It only does this with pdf docs and printing off the internet. Seems to print fine from excel and word programs. Instead of printing from left to right, it prints right to left and you would have to put in from of a mirror to read. Have not been able to identify the cause or how to remedy. It is very odd! Can you help??

Re: printer prints backwards/upsidedown
This sounds like an advanced setting on your printer setup. When you get to the print dialog, hit Properties for your printer, then look around there for a "mirror" or "reverse" setting. Different printers use different drivers, so your configuration options are difficult to predict.

This is a fairly new problem existing today
The Intelligence agency's all know about this
This started recently with Credit Reporting Agencies
And I don't think it's very funny!
The problem is NOT with our Print controls
This is being caused by the online companies we are attempting to download our financial or credit information from!

May i know which application are you using to print from ?
I guess "Mirror printing" is enabled , hence you are getting its desired effect.
Open a Notepad and print, let me know if issue still persists.
Go to Start>>Control Panel>>>Printers.
Select Printing preferences.
Go to Advance Tab.
Select Mirror images and turn it off or uncheck it.
Press Apply and OK to Apply the settings.
Also perform the same steps on Solution Center.
Open HP Solution Center.
Go to Settings>>Print Settings>>Advance Tab.
In most cases cartridges have a special chip that remembers the toner cartridge serial number an amount of pages printed from it. This means, that even though there still might be some toner left in the cartridge, the chip's counter reaches it's predefined limit and informs printer, that the toner has run out. Just like that, suddenly. It may also be the case, that the chip loses contact with the printer's electrical terminals - try reseating the cartridge in the printer. If that doesn't help, it's time to replace it I'm afraid. Usually the printer will inform "toner low" for some time before it becomes "toner out" and refuses to print. If you get "toner low", then it's time to purchase a new cartridge to have it ready.
For the cutter to work it is necessary to instruct the printer to "Use the cutter" This setting is usually accessible in the printer driver. Your label program interacts with the printer driver. Ensure that the cutter option is selected in the printer driver.
