Printer sending out 2 sheets

  Dobba 19:03 25 Jan 2010

I use Vista Home Premium and an HP Photosmart C 6180 all-in-One printer. Everything has been o.k. until about a week ago, when the printer started to send out one blank sheet, before printing the next one as normal. As I have about 400 pages to print out, this is driving me potty, to say nothing of the time wasted.
Has anyone any idea how to stop this?

Thanks for that, James, but I'm afraid it did not help. The web site you sent me to dealt with blank pages coming out in the middle and at the end, but my trouble is a blank page coming out at the beginning. Oddly enough, when I print a 2 page document, I get only the one blank sheet at the beginning and then the other two print as normal. Something is telling my printer to produce a blank sheet at every "printing". I have tried checking the Page Layout, and the "Show/Hide" button but these are all o.k. and don't help.
Thanks for trying.

I assume you are using Word? Have you checked Print Preview on your 2 page document - does it show the extra blank page?

Thanks for that Sea Urchin. I have solved the problem. I had one print setting to use A4 paper and the other to use "Letter" paper. Once I had set them both to A4, hey presto! problem solved. Thanks to all for your efforts.
