Cold reset
A cold reset changes most system parameters in NVRAM to the factory defaults. However, unlike NVRAM inititialization, a cold reset does not reset the page count, the paper tray sizes, language, or formatter number.
Note If an HP Jetdirect card is installed, remove it before performing a cold reset. Otherwise, the procedure will also reset all the HP Jetdirect settings as well as the printer settings.
To perform a cold reset
1 Turn the printer off.
2 Press and hold down the GO button.
3 Turn the printer on, and continue to hold the GO button for at least 5 seconds, but not longer than 15 seconds. During this process, the Attention LED will turn on.
4 Release the GO button.
Note If both the Attention and the Ready LEDs turn on before you release the GO button, you must start the procedure again with step 1.
5 The printer's LEDs will begin cycling. The cold-reset process will
run until completion, and the printer will return to the ready state.

If not work, tris this

NVRAM initialization

CAUTION Only perform the following procedure if absolutely necessary.
Performing an NVRAM initialization resets some parameters that cannot be restored later.
NVRAM initialization sets all default variables stored in NVRAM back to factory default values or to a default ROM value, depending on the variable. It also performs a system reset.

NVRAM initialization resets the following:

  • all menu settings to factory default values
  • factory settings such as formatter number, page counts, and factory paper settings
To perform NVRAM initialization
1 Turn the printer off.
2 Press and hold down the GO button.
3 Turn the printer on, and continue to hold the GO button for at least 20 seconds. During this process, the GO button, Attention, and Ready LEDs will each turn on.
4 Release the GO button.
5 The printer LEDs will begin cycling. The NVRAM-unit process will run until the printer is in the ready state.

Printing multiple page pdf on kodak esp c310 AiO


I had exactly the same problem as you! Whenever I printed anything of more than 1 page the paper jammed. I now know why... When you go to File>Print in Adobe reader, the print window displays a load of options. Simply uncheck the 'Print on both sides of paper' box. This worked for me! Hope it works for you!

Left margin cuts off text


If text is cutted of, this is a problem of the settings of your paper size. It can be different according the software you are using (Do you print from MS Word or some other application?) You have to control the paper size settings in your driver. In your pop-up screen of the printersettings, you'll see an example on the right side. It shows the printing area. You can change it on the left size. Sometimes the numbers doesn't change, than you need to push the button 'properties' and look for the papersize in here. If that also doesn't work, make a pdf of your document and try to print it again, and hit the button 'paper size based on pdf' in your driver.

My printer is saying that the ink's expiration is near. It gives me the option of continuing with the current ink that I have. Unfortunately, pressing the OK button does absolutely nothing.


I would advise you to replace the ink, also press the setup button (the one that has the symbol of the wrench). check for anything that either says ink status or printhead health and click on that option and see the page printing out .the printhead health maybe causing a problem


Step one: Print the PQ Diagnostic page
  1. Make sure the printer is loaded with unused white paper.
  2. Press the Setup button.
  3. Select Print Report .
  4. Select Print Quality Page .
  5. Press OK .

copy and paste the link your browser and try these steps ,if this doesn't resolve the issue please help me out with the 4-5 stars . If this doesn't help I think it's time to upgrade your printer,sorry for the bad news

Printing from a computer, get paper jam, clear it, then the printing sarts over from zero again, so get too many copies. Any fix in the software? The counter on the machine doesn't operate when...


You can work this around by using a little manual labor. Whenever the paper jams and doesnt continue from previous page, you can unplug the printer from the electricity. (not just the on/off button). This way it loses the document that was printing from the memory. Then you can send the doc for printing again by designating which pages to print.
ex. if your document was stopped at the 12 pg and it has 20 pages.. go to print> and then choose which pages to print i.e. 13-20.
I hope this helps.

I have a hp photosmart c4280 and whenever i print it says margins are incorrect. how do i set them correctly so i can print documents.


Check the paper size at the printer properties on control panel.
You may be trying to print an A4 document to a printer configured to print on Letter size paper.
The document paper size should match the printer's paper size deffinition.

My manual was in a strange language. How do I


Your manual can be found here.

Printing on both sides of paper You can print on both sides of a paper; duplex. Before printing, decide how you want your document oriented. You can only use this feature with Letter, Legal, A4, US Folio, or Oficio sized paper.

Do not print on both sides of the special media, such as labels, envelopes, or thick paper to print on both sides of paper. It may cause a paper jam or damage the machine.
  1. To change the print settings from your software application, access Printing Preferences. (See Opening Printing Preferences.)
  2. Click the Layout tab.
  3. From the Double-sided Printing section, select the binding option you want.
    • Printer Default: If you select this option, this feature is determined by the setting you’ve made on the control panel of the machine.
    • None
    • Long Edge: This option is the conventional layout used in bookbinding.

    • Short Edge: This option is the conventional layout used in calendars.
      4247d3d.png
    • Reverse Double-Sided Printing: Check this option to reverse the print order when duplex printing.
  4. Click the Paper tab, select the Paper Options.
  5. Click OK or Print until you exit the Print window.

If your machine does not have a duplex unit, you should complete the printing job manually. The machine prints every other page of the document first. After that , a message appears on your computer. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the printing job.

Good Luck!

Random Symbols on Pages I print


This sounds like a corrupt print driver. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the driver.
