    Print Error - out of paper

    I tried to print a 6 page Excel worksheet with borders & alternate shading. I have an HP LaserJet 5P. If I try to print more than one page, it prints the first page & then gives me an error that it's out of paper (it's not). I can print one page at a time if I wait a little between printings. I'm wondering if this could be caused by my spool or timeout settings or something else. Can anyone help?

    I have the following settings under Spool Settings:
    Spool print jobs so program finsihes printing faster
    Start printing after first page is spooled
    Spool data format: EMF

    I also have timeout settings as follows:
    Not selected: 60 seconds
    Transmission retry: 45 seconds

    Under port settings, I also have to check port state before printing. I don't know if that slows me down.
    Thanks in advance,

    You could try changing the Format to RAW.
    Does the stated installed memory match the actual installed memory?

    What happens if you install a new printer - vanilla flavour HP4 - and pretend the HP5 is a HP4 (if you follow my drift)?
    I use HP4 drivers for HP4's, 5's, 6's and a 2100 all without problem.

    Hi Leif:
    I had tried changing to RAW with no difference. But I will try creating a new printer tonight & see how that works. Thanks,

    Do you have the latest driver for the 5P?

    Hi Legare.
    I believe so. I haven't checked for awhile & this printer is about 5 years old. I will check that also. Thanks for the suggestion.
