    HP Office Jet V40 Printing partial pages, OS Win8 64Bit


    Hello.

    I am using an HP Office Jet V40 Printer on my Laptop which runs Windows 8. Ive recently bought new ink for it and aligned the ink (and by recent i mean last night). I test the ink cartridges and the printer prints the pages fine. Full pages. However when i go to print some homework I have typed up ready to be printed, it prints a partial page, whether its 7/8 of the page. 1/2, or 1/4 of the page. It rarely prints a full page, so repeatedly gambling is a waste of ink and paper for me. I researched this and tried finding an answer on my own. I dont know if its the printer. Ive used this printed on my older laptop for many things successfully, that had Windows 7 Home Professional on it fine. I think in the past, ever since I started using this printer with my Windows 8 Laptop it's been bugging out. I cannot remember since before these last two days i havent used this printer in a long time. But, could anyone probably figure out how to fix this issue for me? I'll be typing a lot of things so i'd like to try and get it all done with this printer.

    Also. Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section. I believe it may be a driver issue, and when I saw hardware I assumed a printer topic can fit in here. if its in the wrong section, if you could move it to the proper section it'd help. My apologies in advance.

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi when you put it onto this laptop you have now is it wifi or cable?
    Did you have a disc that came with it ?
    Have installed the latest drivers for that model to work with windows 8?
    What you can try is shut printer down, go to control panel, Program and features, find your printer and uninstall everything with HP against it.
    Restart your laptop then if you have a disc run it until you are told to turn on your printer,
    If no disc then go to Devices and if cable make sure it is connected, then click find my device.
    Windows should scan and find it and upload the drivers and software for it.
    Hope that helps you

    The printer is connected to my laptop by cable.
    I do not have a disc for it.
    I dont recall installing any new drivers recently, however when i use the HP Printer Help program (the one that checks for the latest drivers lol), it says that my printer has the latest driver already.
    Explain what you mean by uninstall everything HP related? To the printer or all HP programs in general?

    Anything that is connected with the printer
    So when you reinstall it plug the cable into the usb drive with the printer switched on.
    Then once it has been found just follow what ever comes up if it comes up do you have a disc click no
    Then do you want windows to try and find the latest drivers for your device, or search for them yourself/
    Windows 10 will either install them its self or go and get them from the HP site
    see how that goes

    What software are you using to type of the homework? What happens when you print to PDF? I finally gave up on buying Inkjet's. By the time it got to where you can buy a Laser for the same price as two ink cartridges, it outweighs the reason to keep using the Inkjet. We hardly print, but always scanning. But having the Laser makes things a lot easier, without having to deal with bad cartridges or dried up cartridges.

    Looks like it is the Windows Spooler and the device software that is causing the issue. It is going back as far as 2010 for what you are experiencing. OfficeJet v40 printing parital pages - HP Support Forum - 1182953

    Have you tried updating the USB drivers for your computer? That worked for the person who posted at. OfficeJet V40xi prints partial pages only with Windows 7 - HP Support Forum - 256947

    Your post is the seventh one down in google search right now. It should start moving to the top, once we get it marked solved.

    broe23 - Im using Microsoft Office Word 2010. I didnt try from other programs/formats. I may consider buying a new printer, this one is rather old, but i'd have to save up for it, Im not sure why it doesnt work normally now. It did for the past 2-3 years that i had it in my possession. I cant find an update for the drivers for the printer. So i wouldnt know how to do it.

    htcone - what type of programs would i be looking to delete? are you able to like name any in example?

    I have the Brother HL-2280DW. I did not even realize when I bought it, that it did not have iOS printing capabilities, So I ended up getting a Lantronix xPrintserver Home to handle that.

    The printer is quick and with the iPhone app, I can scan in and then paste the pdf to a fax or email from the phone.

    I use it as a Wifi printer, which makes it even better.

    There is no help, because HP no longer has supported that printer since before 2010. Time to get a new one.
