SOURCE: Last page of printing stops 3/4 through the page.

Try cleaning your heads with appropriate solution. Then, cancel all print jobs. Try again. If it does the same i would turn it off, inplug all the cables, replug all and turn on. Try again. If still no good, completely unistall printer then reinstall it. Try once more. Good luck

Well lets start with DISREGARD ALL THE ABOVE BULL in the above brainless clarification request first noted. Here's a little good advice for you from a 14 year veteran printer tech.

Lets start with the cheapest and easiest moving to the more difficult or more expensive. Your problem can be caused by a few differnt things.

Print a configuration page (on the printer menu press check button, scroll to info menu, press check, scroll to print configuration, press check. Once you have the look for the page count on the page.

Try fresh good paper from a sealed ****. If your paper has picked up moisture this will show up as light or uneven print.

Next if the printer is over 100K page count, replace the transfer roller (foam roller inside printer under the toner cartridge). Lets try cleaning it first if your under 100K or to see if it improves at all. Any improvement will verify the transfer roller as bad. Review the photo below as it shows the transfer roller end inside the printer. The screwdriver is showing where the release white clips are (two). Press the tabs and lift the left side. The right will come out of the hole socket on its own but note where the hole on the right is for replacement. Try not handling the roller with your bare hands any more than you must as oil from your hands can cause slight imaging defects if your hands are sweaty or damp.

Using a clean rag (like t-shirt material) dampened (not soaking) with 99% alcohol (not 70%) lets clean the roller. Gently but firmly scrub the talc and paper dust buil-up from the roller. Once you've removed the build up it should return to a dark grey color. Let the 99% alcohol dry (5 minutes or so)and reinstall.

Try printing again. If the problem is solved your done. If not and it has improved, you will need a new transfer roller. They are available on Ebay much cheaper than from a dealer. The part number to search for is RM1-0343. Here's a link to ebay for one at around $20.00 landed.

If the problem is the same, your problem is more than likely a dirty laser scanner lense. You'll need to remove the covers from the printer to accomplish this. The laser scanner can be located under the top cover. It's the larger black box on the top side of the printer. Once the scanner has been located, remove the top cover. DO NOT TOUCH THE MULTI SIDED SPINNING MIRROR TO THE REAR OF THE SCANNER. You will be cleaning the clear lenses and mirror towards the front. You clean this gently with a CLEAN and DRY Q-tip. Use a few Q-tips rather than re-applying a dirty one. Heck they are cheap!

Re-assemble the printer and try printing again. One of the steps above should resolve your issue. I am enclosing a link to a free service manual for your printer to help you through the disassembly and in the rare case that your issue remains.

Hope this helps you a lot more than the first response you receved. If so rate me with a FIXYA!

Thanks.

SOURCE: Printer prints partial page and then stops

We have had the same problem. I have found that if I close all windows not being used on the computer, then try to print the document again the entire document prints. This happens on an older computer we have that doesn't have alot of RAM.

I cannot print a whole A4 page although the printer is set to A4 - ie labels only print one column


You can do several tests to understand where the problem is.1. Try to print a test page - Go to Printer Devices - Right click your printer and select Properties - Click Print Test Page button like on the picture below
11_29_2011_9_40_40_pm.jpgIf the result is still like your description, you are facing hardware problem like defective toner cassette or drum.2. Try printing from different sources - print a page from your browser like Internet Explorer - print a page from your Office Application like MS Office or OpenOffice - print from notepad - print from Image viewer application
If your printer prints only the left half of the page - this is definitely hardware problem. If you receive different results from different sources, find out wich one of them does the described printout and try to discover the setting that causes the problem and restore it.Sometimes when we talk about MS Office this problem is caused by Print Area setting. You can just Clear this Print Area from Page Layout like on the picture below.
I hope this was useful information for you!11_29_2011_9_56_30_pm.jpg

My Dell V305 printer will not print the whole page of an email. This is a document that I need the whole page.


You can get the half document when yhr printer runs out of memory ie too big a or too detailed a print job or if the document itself contains what the printer is seeing as control or commad characters and errors out. It can also be a port error.

Usually its just too detailed a print job. When you print click on the printing preferences and then look for either a DPI setting or a Quality setting. Turn any of those down and try printing. You may have to turn it down more than once to get it to behave. Most new printers can print at 2400 dpi. Unless you know what too look for you won;t be able to see much if any difference even down to about 300 dpi.

Sometimes you cn get port errors and those can be hardware or operating system caused. You can try another usb port. Also try rebooting and printing with nothing else running.

When I send my job to the printer. The printer will print but only on 1/2 of the page. it looks like the printer think i want two sheets on one page


Hello,

Is the whole page you want printed on half the page is just half the data printed? If the whole page is printed on half the paper then the problem is software. If the page only prints the left side or the right side blank on the other side then the problem is most likely the fuser assembly. Can you take a picture of the page and email it to us, we will email you back with what needs to be done next.

My Samsung CLP 315w refuses to print a whole A4 page. Stops half way then message comes up paper jam but when I open back / front, paper not jammed and when I close it document continues printing then...


Hi,

most likly hood is your exit sensor is faulty. The printer work in this way. if it does not print out all the document. it will print again. that is why you kept getting this same issue after a jam open and close door it will print again.

replace the exit sensor it will help.

Incoming fax shows one half of the page


The Thermal printhead is most likely burned out on one side and will need replaced. It could also be the printhead connector has worked loose and is only making partial contact. Remove the connector and reinstall. If that doesn't solve the problem then it would be cheaper to purchase another fax.

this is a driver problem, try reinstalling the printer with the laserjet4 driver which is a universal PCL driver, this should solve the problem. If not, there is also a blank HP Laserjet driver
