Do a "Print Preview" and adjust the size % of the print. While in Print Preview, you see what the document looks like as you adjust the image. When you like what you see, hit print!

If the power light is blinking it is an indication of an issue with the printer. Check to make sure there are no paper jams or open covers, make sure there is paper. If there are any error messages please post them. Try going into the printer tools, To gain access to the tools,
open the Printer Properties dialog box, click the Services tab, and then click the
Service this device button.
Use the printer tools to perform the following tasks:
• View estimated ink levels.
• Clean the print cartridges.
• Calibrate the printer.
• Print a test page.
• Perform other functions as needed.

In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken . Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or poor ink cartridge contacts. Sometimes the power supply unit must be checked as a poor SMPS unit can deliver low voltage and cause issues to the printer function. Check all the leads and connections of the mother board , the tags to the ink cartridge. Also check the mechanical settings of the ink cartridge , if jammed or tight remove motor and manually free the drive before it is set back.

This issues looking printer head problem. check the following Steps for cleaning printer head :

Click on the Start button if you have Windows XP. If you have Windows Vista, click the Windows icon that resides in the lower left corner of your computer screen.

Click on "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware." Finally click on "View Installed Printers or Fax Printers."

Right-click on the name of your printer and choose "Printing Preferences." This should open a new window; next look for a tab or button marked Maintenance, or something similar.

Find the button that says "Print heads" or "Clean the Print heads" and click on it. You may be asked to choose which print heads; choose them all if you are. Make sure there is paper and ink in your printer, and that it is turned on ahead of time.

Take out the page your printer has printed and see if there are any grids or boxes missing. If there aren't, then you can just exit the program--your print heads are not clogged. If there are grids missing, then click on the "Cleaning" or similarly worded button.

Once the cleaning process has completed, print another page to be sure that your print heads are no longer clogged. If they are still clogged, repeat Steps 1-5 until your printer is printing clearly.

HP doesn't have the drivers available for windows 7 cause its only in Beta and they won't have it until windows 7 becomes official and available in stores. The only chance would be if you go into the control panel and then add printers. See if in there it has your make and model of your printer. If it doesn't then try a printer that is similar and it might install it. If you still can't get it to install then you'll have to wait for HP to come out with a driver for windows 7.

As per HP Support, the driver is already included on your Windows 7 OS. You just need to follow the steps below to activate it.
