of late, the carriage often stalls in my printer. The printer model is HP-Deskjet-4185.
The stalling does not happen when I initiate printing. The typical series of incidents leading to stalling of printer carriage is as follows -
- Switch on Computer alone (Windows XP)
- Open PDF document which I want to print
- Turn on printer
- Feed paper to the printer
- Give print command on Acrobat Reader
Printing works fine. The two pages of the PDF document are printed successfully. And, then printer carriage stalls.
Any particular reason as to why it stalls?
How can I fix it? Any suggestions would greatly help!
NOTE: I feed page by page rather than putting all papers together as sometimes the printer takes more than 1 paper as input. So, when I am printing 2 pages, I insert one page...wait for it to complete printing. Printer comes up with the message that it has run out of paper, I then feed the other paper. And, this is how I have been doing it for ages and it has worked fine so far.
