HP DeskJet 722C Printer

Q: HP DeskJet 722C Printer

After I re-filled my black ink cartridge (for about the 5th time) I get an INCORRECT INSTALLATION message on my screen.

I have re-installed the cartridge several times, cleaned and checked all the connect pins and even put in a new HP 45 black cartridge. No help!

The material prints jut fine if I press the OK on the message and in fact prints ok even if I don't press OK.

IDEAS?

Thanks,

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hi,

I have an HP Deskjet 722C printer installed on a windows xp home pc. the pc is only about a month old. Anyway, when i go to print out a test page, it starts and then shuts the system off. I've searched the forums and can't find any solutions for it. HP does not have updated drivers and the drivers that are being used are on the xp cd already. I just have no idea what would cause a total shutdown. I did uncheck the reboot on error option under startup and recovery. Any suggestions???
Thanks !!!

Can't seem to get an older computer to communicate with a DJ 722c. Before the drives were re-formatted and Win ME clean installed this machine used this printer directly and more recently on a network. Connection is parallel and I keep getting the message that the two can't communicate. Any ideas?

Thanks
 

A:HP DeskJet 722c

Go into add/remove programs and remove anything that is related to the 722. Reboot and if windows finds your printer, cancel the install. Instead wait until windows completes its boot and then install the software that came with your printer. Follow the prompts on the screen. Hope this works for you.

Having trouble connecting a 722c with an older computer using a parallel cable. Before reformatting the disks and installing Win ME this machine used this printer directly and more recently on a network. I've got the latest drivers from HP but I keep getting a message that the computer and printer cannot communicate. Any ideas?

Thanks
 

A:HP DeskJet 722c

Uninstall the printer-driver and delete the directory where it was installed.
Disconnect the printercable from the PC.
Reboot, go into BIOS, find the LPT1 settings. Make sure they are set to ECP and using DMA 3, 5 or 1. Save and exit.
Boot into Windoze. Now switch off your antivirus/firewall software and all the programs that have little icons in your System Tray.
Now install your HP-drivers first and then the printer.

For unknown reasons hard drive on my HP Pavilion desk top crashed about a couple of weeks ago. It is running Windows7, 64 Bit. Computer is about four years old. Best Buy guys Reinstalled windows with the back up disks that I had created when I first got this computer. I have an old HP Desk Jet 722c that I had been using with this system. I had to buy USB to Parallel Adapter cable and download a 'patch' for this printer and I never had any problem with it till I tried to use it again after the Reinstall.

There is no problem installing the printer, cable driver is also installed without any problems, I downloaded the 'Patch' again but I am not able to print. I have run Utilities etc to check for any problems. nothing is reported.The cable that I am using is Belkin F5U002V1. Also bought a new cable( similar) , did not work. When I check the Event Viewer for Printer services it shows error 1726. I have tried changing Port from USB0001 to LPT1/2/3. In that case it gives error#372/ Spooler operation Failed. I have tried to start/ restart Spooler also. Nothing seems to work. I am not computer savvy, I cannot check/ edit Registry etc but I did run CC cleaner just in case.

I have installed HP updates also, and window updates are on auto.

I would appreciate any help in solving this 'mystery'.

I have a new Windows 7 laptop networked to my Desktop XP machine. They are both in the same workgroup. I have a DeskJet 722C connected to the XP machine & it is working fine. When I try to connect/install this printer to my new Windows 7, it can't find the driver. I checked with HP & they said they don't have one for "7" but it is contained in Microsofts stash, which it isn't. I tried to connect using the 710C, 720C & 500C printers, but none of those drivers work. Does anyone know if there is a generic driver or some other driver that might work?

Does anyone know if the HP Deskjet 722c is a "sharable" printer?

We have a home network with 2 wired computers and 2 wireless computers, with a mix of Win 98, SE and Win XP home.
We can share a HP Photo smart 1218 with all of the computers, but we cannot get the Deskjet 722C to share.
It appears to set up correctly by installation of the drivers, but when we try to print to it, we get a message that says it can't communicate with it and the file has been deleted.
The 722C is on a pc that is running 98SE.

I cannot get my DesKjet 720C to print in colour even after I turn off the check in the "print in greyscale" box under colour. I noticed that the apply button at the botom of the window does not activate when I change properties.
 

A:HP Deskjet printer

Check your color cartridge. It could be clogged too. You can clean the jets via the printer properties.
First make sure you have version 10.3 of the Hp drivers.

http://www.hp.com/cposupport/printers/software/dj720en.exe.html

the newer version 10.3 isn't much different feature wise, but it could have some fixes. That is what version I use.

Check the settings in the printer properties too. Make sure your print quality on normal and the proper paper type selected. Put colorsmart II on automatic. Disable ICM.

You may have to uninstall the older drivers first. You could also remove the printer from the device manager, have windows detect again and then install the 10.3 drivers.

To change printer properties one can either go to settings-printers-properties or to the properties tab on the window that appears after the file-print menu. When I change printer properties using the first option, I find that the settings are not changed unless I change them again using the latter path. This happens repeatedly when I change the "print in greyscale option".

Although I use a Canon printer myself, a friend has asked if I could help with a problem on his HP deskjet. We are both so called "silver surfers" but I'm reasonably literate. My friend is completely new to it all. I installed the printer according to the book and it appeared to work on normal b/w text A4 plain paper. However on trying to print colour text the printer simply started then hung and would not budge.
I uninstalled it using Windows (VIsta home premium) uninstaller and re-installed it. (He uses a Dell laptop in the Inspiron series.) It appeared to finish the re-install but the CD icon stayed spinning on the screen and I had to close down to get rid of it. Again the printer would produce a test page and b/w text but not colour text where there was a mix of b/w and colour text. One thing I would add is that on the 3rd attempt to reinstall it did not completely finish the reinstall but went into a loop? at the "installing software" line. However it would stll print b/w text. Can you please help? We would have gone gray in the head by now if we were not already there.
Thank you
Vatten
 

A:HP Deskjet D1660 printer

Firstly you might like to consider going to the printers support pages on the manufactuers website. See if you need an update to the drivers for the printer.
Second. Have you tried your canon on the other machine ?
As you probably know, when it comes to fixing anything techy its a case of trial and error in tracking down the fault...and its always the last thing you try

It the printer is fairly new then it most likely a software/communication problem between both machines.
The fact it hangs when being installed suggests this.
When my HP plays up I have to switch off my lappy and then it prints,yes I need a new one ..lol

If its an old machine then it may not work with Vista or might work with Vista but only 32bit machines.

Not printing colour means it was not told too.
Printer stopping means its busted or its waiting for information.
Again it seems to point to communication issues which in most cases means driver update or a sharp blow to the side of the machine. I would opt for the former as the latter can get messy

I have a Dell 400 MHz w/128 ram and an HP 722C printer. recently, the printer started taking an extremely long time to print. When I print something, the first line or so prints normal and then there is a really long pause. Than another line will print. Then a really long pause, etc. Eventually it will just stop printing altogether. I have tried re-installing the drivers and this issue was not resolved.

Any ideas?

Thanks.
 

A:HP deskjet printer issue

You might try this driver. I think most of the 722s shipped with the 10.0 driver. http://h20015.www2.hp.com/en/softwa...c=en&softitem=Microsoft Windows 98&sw_lang=en

When you say you reinstalled the driver did you remove it in add/remove programs? You have to do that and it is probably best to remove the printer from the printer folder as well. Reboot the computer and cancel out of the new hardware box for the printer. Install the software and reboot and it should show up.

First make sure it is showing as an EPP or ECP printer port on the details tab in your printers folder: Start>Settings>Printers. You might also mess with the spool settings, but note what they are so you can reset them.

I've been unable to print even B/W text with my HP Deskjet 940c for some time, and the status light is blinking to indicate an installation problem with the color cartridge (rather than just an empty cartridge, although it probably *is* empty). I've tried unplugging and replugging the printer, wiping off the copper contacts, firmly reseating, etc. Because it used to work, I assume the cartridge itself isn't defective. I'm trying to gauge whether it's worth gambling $35 for a replacement cartridge if it turns out that the problem is something else and the printer will have to be replaced anyway. (I'm reluctant to do that
unless it's necessary because it's hard to find a model that will be economical over time given that our usage is low, we don't print much in color, and we never print photos.)

Any ideas about whether a replacement color cartridge is likely to work?

At least i tried to install it, no way, kept asking for files that werent there. I contacted HP who told me to install HP 550C drivers instead.
I did that, and with some other adjustments, like having to uninstall usb drivers and rebooting so system could re-install them,and a few other adjustments, its working. The tech guy told me "The issue seems to be with the some of the missing files from the Deskjet 5550 drivers which are required by the Operating System"
My cousin, who gave me the printer, installed it fine in his P4 system and he has win xp pro w sp2 installed.
I dont have sp1 or sp2 installed in my test unit.
I dont want to install the HP 5550 in my main unit as i have a Lexmark 4350 all in one unit that i like, although i do have sp 1 installed there.

My questions are:
Would the absence of sp1 and\or sp2 make a difference in wether one could install the 5550 drivers instead of having to revert to the 550 drivers?

If anyone else out there has this printer installed with either set of drivers, can you tell me if you have sp1 or sp2 installed?

I hope to get some idea of other peoples installations and if they had any issues with thi... Read more

I've finally got around to setting up my home network. I have the HP Deskjet 5650 printer directly connected to my VAIO notebook which and the VAIO is also directly connected to the wireless router. I am running Vista Home Premium 64 bit on the the notebook. The printer works fine connected to this computer and in the past has worked fine when connected directly to the following two computers.

The other two computers on the network are running XP SP2.

When I try and add the network printer to either on the XP SP2 computers I get the message:

The server for the "HP Deskjet series (HPA)' printer does not have the correct printer driver installed. If you want to search for the proper driver click OK. Other , cancel and contact Administrator or manufacturer.

I have the original software that came with the 5650 but the correct driver cannot be found on the desk.

Does anyone know how I can get the two satellite computers to recognize the printer or where I can find the driver?

Thanks in advance!

A:Trying to add HP Deskjet 5650 printer to network

Hi, I think your problem is that HP provides drivers for deskjet 5600 series only up to XP OS. If you want to have this printer to work with Vista, your only possibility is to use a very rudimentary driver which is part of Vista. This basic driver works, OK, but you lose a lot of the nice functions/buttons which you find in the XP driver, double side printing etc etc. You say you have used this printer connected directly the XP machines, I guess you have noticed the difference between available functions in the XP driver and Vista driver? Why not connect your printer to one of the XP machines? That will work fine, I have tested it. Printing from Vista will of course only give you the basic functions, but if or when you would like to do a more sophisticated printing, just do that with the XP machine. The 5600 is a very good printer. Hope this will be to some help.

Hi

I'm trying to get my printer to work on my laptop with windows 8.1 pro 64 bit.

Here are the deafult port settings after it self installs.

When I run the HP print and scan doctor it says:
I've done this and it hasn't solved it!

What is the correct port to solve this port mismatch?

Any help is appreciated.

Many Thanks.

Alex

I've got a HP Deskjet F380 and im running Windows Vista Home Premium.

I plug in my printer, and it makes no 'da-nu' as it normally would when you plug in any USB device, and nothing shows up in printers or anything.

When I unplug it it makes the 'na-na' sound as it normally would if you take a USB device out..

I've got the Windows Vista drivers from HP, but still no luck.

Thanks for reading!

A:HP Deskjet Printer Doesnt Show Up

If you plugged in the printer before without the drivers being installed it would have installed default drivers which are non-compatible for the device and linked it with that USB port. make sure all peripherials are unplugged, uninstall and reinstall the vista drivers for your printer, and plug the printer into a DIFFERENT usb port.

When I right click on the printer icon at bottom of screen, the wording is in French. When I click on File Print, it's in French AND English...BOTH

I went to Control Panel and tried to see if French was the defalut language, but it's not; English is.

Any hope?

Thanks!

Hi,
I am getting this error Hpfvls 13 whenever I print something. In the past I was told to disable a two way communication between the printer and something else. Not sure what that was all about. This time I'd like to know what does the error mean and can I repair the problem. When I went to the help website for this HP Deskjet 712, it doesn't say how to fix the problem, or even what it means. It only tells me how to disable some things so that I can continue to print. Then I have to re enable those start up programs after I print. It seems kind of silly to me. This error sign doesn't really hamper me from printing, it just keeps popping up and it's annoying. Does anyone know what's going on with my printer?
