I have an HP Deskjet 720C connected through a USB cable to an Ubuntu 12.04 laptop. When I plugged the printer for the first time into the fresh 12.04 laptop install, it auto-detected the printer correctly and choose the recommended drivers without a problem. The document print fine until they reach the end of the last page, then suddenly stop just about the end leaving the page unfinished.

I have checked that the margins are the correct ones. I have the latest version of cups installed. I have also tried changing the options of usb-unidir-default and usb-no-reattach-default via lpadmin, but the printing stops even earlier.

EDIT: It seems like the problem is with the last page. So if I am printing 3 pages, the first two work well but the last few lines in the last page are not printed.

Any ideas?

I still have this same problem with my Deskjet 710C. Perhaps also after an update within Ubuntu. I found this bug report on Launchpad: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cups/+bug/1051646 I hope this problem is gone be solved in the future. –  user101390 Oct 27 '12 at 16:48

I think you should check page size in printer setting . if your page short than A4 printer stops everytime early .

if it doesnt work you should another pc
