Looking for advice on how to resolve an odd printing issue. Using HP OfficeJet 6500 E709a Series all-in-one printer with Windows 7 Home Premium. Prints fine about half the time, but prints only a partial page the rest of the time. One page comes out fine, the next page prints half or maybe three-quarters of the page, and the next page comes out fine! No changes made to my OS, software, print settings, etc. No help through troubleshooting; no error messages; no problems found through diagnostics. Wasted a lot of ink, paper, and time on this...seriously considering trashing this machine. Would love to hear from someone who successfully resolved this issue. Thanks.

Please read this post then provide some details. How is the printer connected - USB, wired LAN, Wireless LAN, bluetooth? Are there any error messages on the printer or computer screen when printing is interrupted? When the printer only prints half a page does it go through the motions of printing the rest (but page is blank) or does it stop mid-page and eject the page?

Also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the device, used Install Wizard to test the drivers, followed all instructions in troubleshooting, etc. "No problem found." Problem not fixed.
