Problems printing documents originating from OpenOffice

Postby ChristienP » Sat Jul 13, 2019 7:52 pm

Hello, I am attempting to print documents from open office 4.1.5 on windows 10 to an HP office jet 3830. at first whenever I attempted to print a document from any source it would only print out blank pages. I updated the drivers to the printer and I was able to print from most sources PDF's originating from Chrome and IE and printing pages directly from websites. When I attempt to print from AOO it still prints blank pages. I attempted to reset the printer and redownload drivers which did not work and also exported the documents to a PDF and attempted to print it from there which did not work. I also exported the documents to Google chrome and tried to print it there which did not work. at a bit of a loss! :crazy: :)

Open them with OpenOffice or LibreOffice, export to PDF and print that from any device.

I suggest you delete the printer in Windows. Shutdown and restart the machine and let windows find it again.

And perhaps ensure you have the latest printer driver from the printer manufacturer, rather than Microsoft.

Windows 10 updates install the wrong printer driver.
AOO 4.1.6, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
