Ubuntu :: HP OfficeJet 6310 All In One Printing Stops In Midway?
Jan 1, 2010
I have had good success with the HP OfficeJet 6310 printing and Karmic. However, recently when printing, the print job stops after a certain amount of pages ( when printing a multiple page document ). The first page almost always prints immediately. This issue occurs with PDFs, OO Writer documents and OO Spreadsheet documents. The printer status window on the printer shows "printing" and the print manager in Gnome shows printing. Sometimes the printing completes after several minutes. Other times I end up killing the job and powering down the printer.
I have three computers with wireless and wired connections to a HP Officejet 6500A Plus all-in-one that I purchased a few months ago. Two of the three are running Ubuntu (versions 8.04 and 9.10). By Christmas, I'll be getting a new computer and upgrading to an Ubuntu v. 10.xx or 11.xx. In the first few weeks after I got the 6500, I had no trouble printing (although in 8 years using Linux, I've never been able to scan ...). For the last couple of weeks, however, I've been unable to print. I keep getting messages saying that the printer is not connected. I have re-installed the printer drivers and run hp-setup several times but to no avail. Its latest trick is to start spitting out paper with a line or more of ASCII symbols at a very rapid rate. The third computer is a Windoze 7 box that my son connects to wirelessly but he can no longer print as well.
I've recently decided to migrate the infrastructure in my workplace from ubuntu to fedora, every thing except the printers went perfectly. When I try to print as an user It just throws an generic error and stops, as a root it doesn't even show the error.
This is the debug log: Code: D [28/Apr/2010:04:22:03 +0200] cupsdSetBusyState: Dirty files D [28/Apr/2010:04:22:03 +0200] cupsdReadClient: 12 POST / HTTP/1.1 D [28/Apr/2010:04:22:03 +0200] cupsdSetBusyState: Active clients and dirty files D [28/Apr/2010:04:22:03 +0200] cupsdAuthorize: No authentication data provided.

It worked fine in debian and ubuntu, so we can assume that the drivers are ok, any ideas?
i am now in the process of building gnome shell.it says 3 or 41 currently and with the net speed today, i think it will take ages till it gets completed. is there a way to stop midway so i can rest my laptop and resume later from where i left out ? an early reply will help me decide whether to go ahead or stop and forget building it today !
I acquired an older hp compaq presario computer version 6310us, and initially installed mint, followed by Ubuntu 9.04. Neither one recognized the onboard ethernet port. I checked the bios, and LAN is enabled. It is also enabled in the drop down menu from the toolbar on the desktop. The cable works fine on other computers, and the light on the ethernet port flashes like it does when the cable is connected. I'm new to linux, so not sure what to do to get the connection working.
I was recently given an HP Officejet 6310 all-in-one. While I could care less about printing, I have a laser and can use wife's inkjet for the rare times I need color so any ink cartridges in this one would just dry out. What I really want is to be able to use scanning over the network and hopefully the document feeder.
So I can scan multiple docs as a batch instead of having to change by hand. Has anybody done this before with Slackware? I went to HP's site and didn't find Slackware listed for hplib download. I went to the sane mailing list, but my posts keep getting bounced due to "greylist", and that never happened before.
I expected more from ubuntu 10.4 with regards to printing with exact size photos and with poor auto colour printing but the situation remains unchanged! for instance .. the photo size configurations for ubuntu/fspot/gimp and others are not compatible with my printers (HP and Brother) .. here in Europe a typical standard size photo (10x15inches or 150x100mm are not even on the Ubuntu listing? I have tried all listed possibilities including "custom" (which does not seem to ever work correctly?)and the result at best is photos with uneven boarders or at worse my printer goes a bit crazy with much wasted photo paper and expensive ink ...even photos selected for "no boarders" still produces photos with the self same uneven boarders.
I have tried pretty much everything over time following advice in this forum and including using HPlip and updating drivers required for my Brother printer but the root problem seemingly lies with the Ubunto photo size setup listing. Working with Ubuntu over the years I have found that it can do pretty much everything that Windows can do except for this dam ongoing photo quality and configuration problem.
Now i've lost possibility to enter my Fedora system. during boot it lost it's modern blue boot screen (with filling drop), it was replaced by standard old boot screen with triple-color stripe. after this boot screen monitor start blinking going on and off. and on last step i'm getting "Fedora 14 boot bla bla bla something" on screen....nothing works except Ctrl+Alt+Delete....system reboots showing successful daemons shutting sequence. How can i edit grub menu from initial grub screen is it possible to it's own 'e' option or 'c' from grub command line?
I have a HP Officejet 6500 E709a printer, everything works fine except that I cannot print with color. I go to admin, open the config for printer, and print the test page but I get no color. Also, in the properties of the printer I cannot see the level of the ink. It says this info is not provided by the printer.
I just installed an HP Officejet 6200 on a Slackware 12.1 machine. It uses a USB interface. If I am on the machine, I can print to it with no problem. When I am on my Debian or Centos machines, I cannot. I have midified the cupsd.conf file to allow everyone to connect to it but so far have not had any success. Port 631 is open on all machines. I have explicitly added a hosts allow 192.168.0.0/24 line in several portions of the conf file with no luck. If I use the cups interface on any of the machines using localhost:631 as the address, I can not only see the printer I can print to it, but I noticed, I am actually attached to the Slackware machine where the printer is located. Can someone suggest a debugging method to help?
Got a problem here with my xsane scanner. my printer is HP Officejet 6500 wireless. when i run xsane when i have a document to scan it says error: failed to open device 'hpaio:net/officejet_6500_E7009n?ip192.168.1.20':error during device I/O.howcan i use again my scanner?
I have a HP Officejct Pro 8000 Printer hooked to UBUNTU 9.10 on a system 76 box. The printer is not loading paper properly. I see references to this issue on various websites and I saw at least one reference to new drivers but alas they were all for windows. I checked the repository and I have the latest and greatest HPLIP. Does this mean I have all of the latest drivers?
I just bought the HP Officejet Pro 8610. I got it all hooked up and tried to print a test page. All I got was page after page of nothing. I am running Debian Weezy on an AMD chip. I had an older HP all in one that worked but the print heads failed. How do I get the 8610 to print.
Anyone know where I can get a driver for that printer? I checked HP website and they don't make a driver for Fedora -- only MS-Windows and MAC. So how do I send something to that printer which is connected via USB cabel ?
I have a HP Office-Jet 6110 All-In-One for about 5 years now and I havve been using it on Suse and openSuse without a problem all these years. This morning I wanted to scan something and suddenly realised that the scanner is not working. I can print but not scan. i tried to set up the scanner using YaST like I have done for the past 5 years but it#s not working. Hpaio shows that no scanner is available for this driver. I can#t install the scanner. What has changed in 11.2 that devices that worked before are not working anymore?
I installed the 64-bit version of OpenSUSE 11.4 last week and tried to print from it today. I couldn't get anything to come out. I've tried both USB and network printing, and nothing ever works. Any attempt to print anything results in the HPLIP Status Service app telling me the job is "completed" immediately, with nothing printed, but the CUPS web interface reports "/usr/lib/cups/filter/hpcups failed".
It's connected to the network router and hp-setup discovers it when I use manual discovery and give it the IP address, but it still won't print even a test page, whether as root or as a user. I've also used the CUPS web interface to add my user to the list of users allowed to print, and added my user to the lp group. But I still get the same error and nothing ever prints.
I would like to configure the button of my printer officejet 4500. However I do not manage to use scanbuttond daemon. How to test key pressing? It seems that nothing is seen by scanbuttond ... when I manually press a key on the printer.

after an update to 11.2 (from 11.1), 64 bit, I don't get the printer to work. I reinstalled the driver and checked in cups: it says that the printer is available and waiting for a job. When I send something to the printer, nothing happens. The priont job will be stopped immediately. The printer is properly connected: xsane finds the scanner, that is part of the printer, without a problem. The printer is also ok: I can copy documents, it just works fine.
Thought I'd give back to the community, at least something. HP OfficeJet 6500 success! Print/Scan/Fax Opensuse 11.1 Go here and download to your desktop. HP Linux Imaging and Printing Then simply do the konsole thing to run the installer, then easy to follow the prompts that appear. I'm hopeless and even I can do it, just look at all my previous noob questions. You then have printer, scanner that work perfect. (Gnome 11.1)The printers are quite cheap, $128AUD Dick Smith etc
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat 64-bit on my desktop with a wired internet connection (with no firewall). For the past 2 days, I have observed that1. Firefox randomly throws up errors like "Problem loading page" whenever I click on a hyperlink. When I click on Reload, the page loads up just fine. This has been happening a lot recently..and I do not remember updating anything consciously. By the way, ipv6 is disabled in Firefox.2. The network stops working all of a sudden (usually indicated by the Firefox error). The Autho Eth0 indication is active, but I am unable to connect to any external machine.
3. Needless to say, this error is manifesting itself in apt-get as well. I get "something wicked happened" errors all the time, and am unable to download or install anything.That this is not a problem with the ISP is obvious because I also have Windows (from which I'm typing this, ironically), which is able to access the internet.Is this a bug in Ubuntu 10.10?
Sometime after I upgraded to ubuntu 9.10 I've been having trouble with my wireless network connection.It will usually log on to the network, then disconnect a shortly after. Then try to connect again, usually successfully, then it cuts off again. Then connects again, then disconnects. FWIW, ubuntu 9.10 works on a different machine pretty consistently, so I don't think its a problem with the router.
With new installs of openSuse 11.4 I've hit a printer problem. I can run hp-setup (or hp-toolbox) for the wireless Officejet j6410 and it is recognised. The right driver is selected. Then when I choose add printer it all falls over with the error message: error: Printer queue setup failed. Could not connect to CUPS Server Is user added to "lp" group(s) error: Fax queue setup failed. Please restart CUPS and try again.
The user is added to the lp group. I have this problem with my 64 bit desktop and 32 bit laptop installs of 11.4, it all worked perfectly in 11.2. I've used the Cups web interface to set up the printer now and can print from both machines, but I would prefer to use the hp-toolbox, which has several convenient features. Where do I go from here?
I have a label printer connected to a windows machine and its shared. And other windows machines can print to this label printer. But I need to be able to print to it from the linux box using lp or lpr. I have been following this article on how to get the labels printing, but I am unable to have any luck whatsoever.
Here is where I am at: bennett@ezyvet:~$ smbclient -L AECRECEPTION -U administrator Enter administrator's password: Domain=[VSG] OS=[Windows 7 Professional 7600] Server=[Windows 7 Professional 6.1] .....
I also have done this: bennett@ezyvet:~$ sudo lpadmin -p AECLABEL -h 192.168.58.116 -i smb://AECRECEPTION/AECLABEL -P /home/bennett/drivers/zebra2844/zebra4.ppd lpadmin: Unable to connect to server: Connection refused
The firewall on the windows machine has turned off. I can see 2 printers, cups cant find any more printers. It just says its searching for eternity. I believe the only reason why the 2 printers show up in cups is because they are network printers?
I was running Ubuntu Karmic Koala in a Dell Optiplex 8200. I wasn't having any problems, but it was running a bit slow. To fix this, I loaded a new graphics card and loaded Lubuntu so I could use LXDE. LXDE worked fine, but the associations on PC Manager were broken, so I switched back to Gnome. Ever since then, I've had a few problems.
1) The desktop image is black and all the icons that should be there are gone. If I browse to the Desktop via terminal (or Nautilus) everything is still there. If I view the desktop setting via the desktop setting control, it's set there, too. However, when I shut down/log out, I briefly see the desktop I set, before all goes black.
2) Printing is now VERY slow. It takes about minutes per page. I assume there's some file I have to either edit or delete to restore the desktop appearance, but I can't imagine why printing is so off.
PS - I was going to add tags, but I can't seem to type any in - weird.
