Question about HP PSC 1410v All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

Only prints business cards correctly on plain paper, but not on the card stock.

Business cards paper prints 1/2 inch higher than if one uses plain paper.  I have wasted nearly 15 sheets of paper.  When I print the test page it is fine. When I put the cardstock in, it prints 1/2 inch too high.  Changing margins does nothing.  HP tells me it is an MS Works problem.  Ha!  I don't think so, I'm not even printing from that application!  HELP!  The HP techs are no help.

I am the guy with the hp d'jet D2445. I ran out of card stock in failed attempts. Not wanting to give up I bought more (Avery, no serrations) and it worked fine. Don't ask why.

Will not print from the computer to the printer. I brought up a picture and pushed print and it just pulled in the paper and it was blank


* Check your warranty. Call for support.

*** Following is for information only.***
* Brand, Model for specific solutions.
* Computers and printers perform many functions.
* Just printing B/W documents are a thing of the past.
* Just printing a document requires the user to identify:
* Size of paper to be used. A4, 5x8", 8x10, banner, etc.
* Quality of paper; Plain, semi gloss, bright white, photo, etc.
* Orientation of document or picture; Portrait or Landscape
* Multiple copy.
* Size of document; Standard paper, Multiple (expanded) poster, Shrink (Reduced to fit page), Reduced to wallet size., etc.
* Color shift (effects) Print in grey scale.
* Print in reverse for T-shirt transfers or window posters.
* many more options depending on the printer. (some print on cakes)
* The point is that these or most of these have to be set up by the user EACH TIME you need to print something. The printer may be set for poster sized pictures but you just want to print a simple letter. This poster setting (depending on how many sheets per poster) may be the upper right corner of the document is blank. It did print but it started in an area that does not have anything to print.
* Another issue with printing (more common) is how many sheets are you printing. Depending on your CPU speed, each page needs to be processed (rendered) to be accepted by the printer. My Lenovo ideapad takes 2-3 mins to render 1 page. Printing 15 pages (or copy) takes over 30 mins to render before it prints the first sheet.
* Which order of print? Was the last page printed first? Is the last page blank?
* Wireless printers also take time to transfer data to the print buffer. This is also depends on your router or WiFi speed. (or network)
* To check your setup use the "Preview" option. Not how the document is pictured on the printed sheet. Pre-view saves on wasting paper on miss prints due to incorrect settings.
* Check your printer manual on setting up for a specific paper, document size, quality, and other issues.
Aloha, ukeboy57

PS, the issue of lost connection (WiFi) will stop the print. Eject the last page (partial print). Some machines will eject page only after a restart or reset.
* Perform a "Test Print" using the printer test mode (to check if the printer is out of ink.)
* Perform a print of a single page letter from the computer to test the connection to printer.
* Use the computer to check the printer app. look at the ink levels. Perform a system check of the printer operations.

How to print small envelopes on HP 7780


Here are a few tips for printing card:
  • Print a test print on regular paper. Before you use your special paper stock, print on regular paper to make sure your settings are right and there is no problem with your design.
  • Check the alignment. First, you can hold the test print up alongside the pre-cut business card paper and see if it is correctly aligned. If the alignment is incorrect, check the application you are using for alignment tools that can correct the issue. You might have to reconfigure these settings a few times to get the alignment you are looking for..
  • Set "Page Scaling" to "None" when you print. If you are using a Windows computer to print from a template or a PDF generated by business card software, the default setting can cause the entire sheet of cards to be scaled to a smaller size, causing the cards to progressively misalign as they go down the page. Once you click print, check in the preferences pane of the print dialog box that comes up. If page scaling is set to Fit to Page or a similar setting, change it to None .
  • Check the margins. If the design on your template goes closer than one half inch (12.7 mm) to the edge of your page, then you should look for the option on your print preferences dialog box that allows your printer to print the maximum possible area. Usually you will find this option either in page-setup, or as one of the options that are available after you choose Print from the File menu in the window that pops up. The exact location of this option can vary based on your printer type and driver.
Tip: If the program you are using is not giving you the results you want, try another program or an online resource.

Feel like an idiot...does the paper load with the print facing downward or upward?


You didn't say what brand and model printer you have so I can't look up a manual and check it for you. But if you don't want to waste a sheet of good stationery or a valuable form (like checks), make a test sheet. Take a plain sheet of paper and mark it along the top edge. Or use a photocopy of the form as a test sheet. Put the test sheet into the printer and print something on it. From the result you'll know how to feed the sheets in the future.

Photos come out totally blurred with colors mixed. Happens on all sizes of paper (photo quality).


  1. Make sure that there is letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper in the input tray.
  2. Touch Setup on the display.
  3. Touch Tools .
  4. Touch Self-Test Report . A self-test report prints. Figure 1: Self Test Diagnostic Pagec01154260.png
  5. In the Print Quality Pattern section on the test page, look at the color blocks for any lines. Figure 2: Print Quality Patternc01154261.png
  6. If there is no color bleeding in the Print Quality Pattern color blocks, print a document to determine if the issue has been resolved.
If you have completed all of these steps and are still experiencing a problem, continue to Step three. Step three: Check the paper
  • Many papers have printing and non-printing sides. Load the paper with the printing side down.
  • Use the correct paper type for the project. For everyday documents, plain paper works well. For documents with dense printing, such as high-contrast graphics or photographs, use HP Advanced paper for the best results.
  • If these steps do not help, try a different paper. Ink might not bleed as easily on heavier paper. Paper that does not accept ink well is also prone to bleeding and smearing. HP designs its inks and papers to work together.
If you have completed all of these steps and are still experiencing a problem, continue to Step four. Step four: Check the printer settings
  1. In the software program you are trying to print from, click File and then click Print . The Print window opens.
  2. Make sure that your printer is selected and then click Preferences . The printer Preferences window opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab.
  4. The Printing Shortcuts tab lists most printing needs, but you might need to modify some of the options. Options on the Printing Shortcuts tab:
    • General Everyday Printing
    • Photo Printing-Borderless
    • Photo Printing-With White Borders
    • Fast/Economical printing
    • Presentation printing
    • Two-sided (Duplex) Printing

    NOTE: These general printing shortcuts have pre-selected settings.
  5. To change the settings from the ones that are available on the Printing Shortcuts tab, click the Features or Color tab. Options on the Features or Color tab include:
    • Print quality : If you are unhappy with the quality of your printouts, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches your paper type exactly, select it rather than Automatic.
    • Paper size : Make sure this matches your paper.
    • Print in Grayscale : Print a document in shades of gray.
    • Orientation : Specify how the document is positioned on the page.
    • Paper Source : Select the tray that you want to use for printing.
    • Two sided printing : Print on both sides of the paper.
    • Color Management : Specify the color space that the printer will use to interpret image data.
    • Pages per Sheet : Specify the number of pages of the document to print on each sheet.
If you have completed all of these steps and are still experiencing a problem, continue to Step five. Step five: Clean the printhead
NOTE: Do not clean the printhead unnecessarily because this wastes ink and shortens the life of the ink nozzles on the printhead.
  1. Make sure that there is plain white paper in the input tray.
  2. Touch Setup on the display.
  3. Touch Tools .
  4. Touch Clean Printhead . The HP All-in-One cleans the printhead and prints a test page.
Step six: Service your productIf you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product

Rx 620 slow to print


Epson's RX620 scans and prints photos at high quality. Text, however, was slow to print and not that good.
it_portal_pic_41791_t.jpg Epson's multifunction devices fall into two categories: general-purpose models that are designed for home or small office use, and photo-oriented devices such as this, aimed more at the enthusiastic amateur snapper.
Because it's a photography-centred device, the RX620 uses dye inks. On photo paper, these produce more vibrant colours than pigment-based inks, and a true gloss finish, but on plain paper produce inferior, less vivid results.
The Stylus Photo RX620 is quite large, and looks dated - but it's not short of modern photo-printing features. Its built-in memory card reader is compatible with seven commonly used digital memory formats, including xD and SmartMedia. Photographers using film will appreciate the scanner, with its high optical resolution and transparency backlight.
On plain paper the RX620's text printing showed bandingand rough outlines on default settings. Our five-page black-and-white text document took two and a half minutes to print. Increasing quality settings made it even slower.
We tried realigning the print heads to improve print quality. The RX620's manual process involves choosing the best-aligned examples from four rows of 15 patterns. This takes good eyesight, and it can be hard to choose between similar-looking options. We needn't have bothered - text remained unchanged.
Photo printing was far better. The RX620 produced some of the best prints we've seen from a multifunction device, but only at its highest quality - and slow - setting. Our A4 test picture took 15 minutes 12 seconds to appear.
The RX620's scanner is excellent, previewing an A4 sheet in six seconds and scanning a 6x4in photo at 600 dots per inch (dpi) in just 14.5 seconds. Negative scan times were reasonable, with a single frame scanned at 2,400dpi in 1 minute 40 seconds.
The RX620 can perform many advanced functions without being attached to a computer, and its colour screen has a clear menu system. Prints can be made directly from memory cards, photo prints or even film. There are four document copying settings, but results using the default Text quality are adequate for most office purposes.
The RX620 isn't a brilliant multifunction device. It does many things well, but its printer is too slow, and simply not good enough on plain paper.

Problem printing business cards


I had this problem today and think I've figured it out. Take a sheet of plain paper and two little pieces ot clear 'scotch' tape. Tape the blank sheet behind the business cards at the top/feeder edge and try again. You may need to tweak it a bit more but it stops it from printing so far up.
