View Full Version : Printer prints blank pages

18-07-2001, 09:52 AM
I am using Office 97 and when printing a page from Word to a HP 4L printer, I always get 2 blank pages produced by the printer as well as my original page.
I think I have checked all settings but can any kind person tell me what could be wrong?

What order do the pages come out in? Do you get one blank page, then your original page, then another blank one, or what?

If this is the case look amongst the printer and page settings in both word and the system for an entry that says something about printing cover pages.

Thanks Jimbob...No the page I want prints followed by 2 blank pages.

Any more ideas?

...something small to check:

before printing, and while your document is still open on screen, look at the lower left work-bar where it will give the number pages your document contains.

Perhaps in your case it may say something like - 'Page 1 of 3 pages' (??)

If that is the case, place your cursor at the end of your work on Page 1 and then hold down the Delete key until the other blank pages are removed.
