Hp laserjet 1300 prints extra blank page

After printing any document, any application or even on the internet ia always prints extra blank page. I have tried all types of drivers PS, PCL5e, and PCL6. I've also tried changing USB cable with centronic (LPT) cable. Still didn't solve the problem. Have any solution to this? SOS

Before you get a better answer to me , I hope you would have told us if you are the first person that used it so that we can know if this problem started from the initial point or at the middle time of using the printer

1) Did you add additional memory to the Printer?, if Yes remove and try back.
2) Try you use this printer in another PC
3) Look for HP1300 printer software.
4) It may be a mechanism/paper carriage error which can not be corrected by software unless you change mechanism/paper carriage.

Not so much a problem but got message printed out while trying to print a document. Unsupported Personality: UNKNOWN. Does this mean something I should be concerned with ??


An error page will print with the words "Unsupported Personality: PCL " in the upper left hand corner. The printers are host-based and do not support PCL printing; therefore, installing an alternate PCL5e or PCL6 printer driver will frequently generate this error condition. NOTE: This error condition occurs by design when an attempt to print with a PCL5e or PCL6 printer driver occurs and is NOT a bug within the product software. SOLUTION: Install the correct HP LaserJet Host-Based Printer Driver or the HP LaserJet printing system software for the product. These drivers are available for download from the HP web site. Click here to go to the HP web site drivers and downloads page. NOTE: There are several programs (such as accounting, invoicing, court documentation applications) that are 16 bit (DOS) programs with a 32 bit (Windows) overlay. Due to the nature of these applications and the associated Windows overlay, the errors may continue with the correct printer drivers. These applications do not typically support a host-based output device, and as such would not be supported in these environments.

Prints 3 pages for every one


You may have an extra page in your word processing program.
Try using the print preview option to see if you have for eg 2 pages in what you think is a 1 page document.

Also, it might be a glitch in your printer software driver, so uninstall the driver and re-install.

Problem printing PDF document


In Print settings if using PCL select Print as Image. Also Spool Printing. Use PCL5e or PS drivers.

Printing blank page at the end of every printing job


Hi Keren,

1) Are you sure it is the printer, not the software application ?

Try printing a single "Hello World" message from "Notepad"

If there is no blank page at the end of it, the problem is in
the specific software app: Office, Word, Excel, etc...


2) What application are you printing from?

a) Check the page and print setup.

b) Make sure the application's "page size" and the printer's
paper size are consistent. Pay special attention to
metric paper sizes vs English:

E.g. A4 vs Letter

If the page with margins is bigger than the paper, it will
generate a new page, even though there are no visible
characters on it.

c) Check the print margins within the page setup:
In MS-Office: File ---> Page Setup --->

d) Add a single character to the very bottom of your
document, and see if it wraps around onto the last page.

Microsoft office applications are notorious for wrapping
the last PARAGRAPH character onto the next page if
it does not quite fit onto the paper.

e) if you are using MS WinWord, go into options and set it
to display all special characters:

Check to make sure that there are no page-breaks at
the end of the document.

Also look for extra paragraph marks/ carriage returns,
and check the format settings on the last paragraph
mark in the document:

Page brake before...
Keep lines together ....
Widow and orphan control ...

which can cause the last paragraph mark to generate a
new page. If the last paragraph mark is not formatted
the way you want it, make sure that you save the
TEMPLATE after you change it, since this is the
DEFAULT setting for all new documents.

Finally it is also possible for Windows applications to look
different on the screen than the final print due to small
(but cumulative) True Type Font (TTF) computation erros,
such that a 10 page document on the screen can actually
page-split in weird places printing as 11 pages.

====
I have the identical model of printer, and it does NOT seem
to have any settings for printing banners or adding separator
pages, at least not in my printer driver, but this is NOT to say
that the applications you are using are not causing this
problem.

I hope this gets you started.

Please rate my answers.

Printer prints first page with strange nonsensical characters


I would move the printer to another computer. See if the problem follows. I have seen the issue a few times with issues in normal.dot but also in other office applications.

Problem I'm fighting with on my 1720 is its printing extra pages between pages. basically print a 5 page document and get an 8/9 page final with the extra blank pages. Think its a user error but could be machine related. going to try it on another PC and see what happens.
