Yes, it's a common problem. Especially in environments where the humidity is high. Humid paper = more curl. The design and specification of the printer also matters. Printers whose fuser unit is designed to run hot will cause more curl. Also, if the printer is designed such that paper travels around tight rollers in a U-shape (especially at the point where ...

Possibly yes, it would depend on the printer software or whether the IT people installed additional software to save every printout. Some companies have programs to monitor their workers in various ways. You would never know, but you could try asking your IT department. In addition there might be some monitoring function built into the printer itself. For ...

Even if it isn't intended, many high end printers have a hard drive where the documents are stored before they are rendered (printed). There have been many reports of documents being retrieved from second hand printers. Paranoid yet?

In your case specifically we can't give an answer. You'd have to ask HR and IT for that information. As a general rule of thumb it's best to assume that everything you do on company equipment, or on the company network, is monitored or logged - with the possible exception of things like passwords (though this isn't always true either). If HR has a privacy ...

"Universal Power Supply" simply means that the power supply will work on any mains system, from 100 to 240 V and 50 or 60 Hz. In essence, the adapter will work on the mains power of any country. The output voltage of the supply isn't specified. It's best to call Lexmark customer service at 1 (800) LEXMARK (539-6275) (I'm assuming you're in the US, ...

Note: This really should be asked as two separate questions, but since they are pertaining to the same document, I will give you both answers. Printing the page black and white is a printer setting. When you are at the print dialog, choose Printer Properties (or something similar depending on the printer), then choose Black & White. Formatting an ...

Since you use only HP ink, the chances are that your printer is needing repair in the sensor. But, because that can be expensive, if you have another 2515 available to use, swap out the ink with it. See if it sends the same message. I used to sell HP printers and PCs. We had a flurry of people returning their HP Deskjets because the ink was not as good as ...

The print settings were corrupt in the user profile of the user trying to print. Any of the following resolved the issue: Deleting the user's profile in System → Advanced System Settings → User Profile Settings Deleting the entries for the printer in the affected users's registry. (Located in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\DevModePerUser, ...

Removing HP printers doesn't always scrub all of the ancillary utilities. HP Status BL.dll monitors ink alerts. You're getting the message because the dll, itself, has been removed but not the service that tries to load it at startup (and now it can't find the missing module). Open msconfig: click the Windows icon and type msconfig in the search box but ...

What you suggested will not work. What people usually do is use a Ethernet to USB printer server such as this example: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833139009


1

That will not work. USB and Ethernet are not the same and you cannot convert one to the other directly. You will need a USB to Ethernet converter, like this.


1

No... These USB-Ethernet connectors require an Operating System that handles the network connection on the device in which you plug the USB side. That is the printer in your case, which doesn't have an operating system capable of handling this.

I believe the printer wants to be calibrated. When a new cartridge is installed it prints the calibration test page to check that it is aligned properly. With many HP printers you need to then scan the test page, so the printer can set itself up correctly. Unfortunately, as your colour cartridge is empty, the alignment will always be faulty, so I suspect ...

The only way to connect the printer is via WPS I do not think that is true. I owned several HP Wi-Fi enabled printers and I'm sure all of them provide the ability to manually input WPA2 credentials. Some can be done through built-in touch screen interface, some others must be done with a PC connected to printer through USB cable. This is the link to HP ...

The M1120 is a GDI (host-based) printer, which depends on the PC's (or Mac's) graphics engine to convert the page into dots on the paper. These printers are notoriously hard to network. To successfully network them from a PC you either Share them from a PC or Use a printserver that is specifically compatible with your printer. The website you linked ...

It might be worth mentioning that before it wouldn't turn on at all, it would turn on occasionally. I'm not sure why though. I unplugged it and let it sit for 10 minutes before attempting to boot it again. With luck, it did indeed boot, but as soon as I tried printing a test page it shut off. From my experience, it sounds as though the fuse has blown or ...
