HP Photosmart 3310 is printing 2345X on blank pages

Any fixes for HP Photosmart 3310 printing 2345X on blank pages? After each print command completes, the printer shoots out a blank page w/ 2345X on it. Sometimes it's a minute later.

Re: HP Photosmart 3310 is printing 2345X on blank pages

I have the same problem. Almost 8 years(!) after purchase, I looked for an update (due to often crashes) and after installing it, suddenly my printer is taking forever to print. After the print I ordered has arrived, a minute or so later, out comes an almost blank page...sometimes just with the number '2' and sometimes with '2345X' in the upper left corner???

I need help fixing this very annoying waste of time and paper...please!

Hello Everyone.

 

I understand your concerns as this situation seems frustrating. Please verify what type of printer you have. Click here to find out: Model Number.

 

How is this printer connected? Wireless or USB.

 

What type of program are you printing from? Does this issue occur using one program or multiple programs?

 

Please reference this HP document on Continuous Pages of Strange Text. This document is only if your printer is connected USB.

 

Once you verify this information I can assist you further.

Re: HP Photosmart 3310 is printing 2345X on blank pages

My model is HP Photosmart 3310 All-in-One

It is connected via USB port to my iMac

It seems to happen whenever I send a print command, i.e. Safari, Word, Excel, Photoshop, Adobe, etc.

As soon as the print job prints, the screen on the printer says Printing... and it takes about a minute or so for the sheet to print with 2 or 2345X on it.

 

I have unplugged everything, rebooted, downloaded the latest driver, etc.

 

Thanks for your response...hope you can solve this.

Thank you for your update!

 

I would just like to verify a couple of things. Have you tried a different USB cord?

 

On your iMac, have you performed every possible Apple Update?

 

Please try Resetting the Print System on your iMac. I have provided an Apple document to help perform these steps. *Note this will delete your printer, but after you performed these steps you can re-add your printer*

 

Also you can try a Repair Disk Permissions. This Apple document will help you perform these steps.

 

Do you have another printer we could try on your iMac to verify if this issue occurs or not?

 

Please verify this information so I can assist you further.

I have a 3180 all in one and it is also printing out "2" or "2345"spontaneously or when I hit print for a requested print job. This is frequent but not always.

Hello martinnadel.

 

You need to verify what type of operating system you have. Click here to find out: Windows or Mac.

Is this printer connected USB or wireless?

 

If you are using a Mac, then please look at my previous post on this thread.

 

Looking forward to hear from you.

I have a Mac Lion 10.7.5. The problem seems to only occur using word although I don't often print from other programs. I have not had the problem printing from firefox.
