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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Have you configured the printer with the network information? It looks like this printer supports WEP and WPA. Print out your network settings and see where you need to provide input.

My HP Deskjet 6980 wireless printer was working just fine until the power went off. I went to reset the IP connection by connecting the printer directly to the wireless router by Ethernet and now the printer is reporting a bogus IP address. Before the power went off it was 192.168.1.104. Now the new IP address is: 192.169.1.104. The "169" part is new, and does not connect to anything! The printer works just fine connected directly via a USB cable, but I am unable to initiate a wireless connection. Even tried a new router. Same result. Any ideas? Did the power loss corrupt a chip in the Deskjet printer? Hate to toss an otherwise good printer out the door!

They are connected with either ethernet cable diretly, or ad-hoc (no router anywhere)

If you need anything more specific than that, let me know.

Okay, here is the deal. I have been trying to get this printer to work for ever. I've even went through HP tech support twice, and they pretty much sent me in circles installing/reinstalling the printer, and we never fixed anything. Big collective waste of about two hours of my life.

My printer is connected to my laptop wirelesly through an ad-hoc network. I have also tried installing with the printer plugged directly in to the laptop with ethernet cable, and it still doesn't work.

But any ways, I'm 90% the laptop and printer are connected. In Firefox, I can type in the IP adress of the printer, and it brings up the printer's web server with the ink levels, etc.

In the control panel, I can see that this printer is set as the default, and it recognizes that it is connected and says "ready".

But if in the controll panel I right click on the printer and select "print a test page", I get this error:

Does anyone have experience with an HP 6980 WIFI printer? I recently purchased one, and cannot get it to get an IP address via DHCP. I finally resorted to running Wireshark software so I could see what was happening when setup fails.

Here is my hardware configuration:
Netgear RT-314 wired router (DHCP server)
DLinik WBR-2310 wireless router (DHCP disabled, wired to the Netgear router)
Dell Latitude D521 laptop (wireless)
Homebuilt PC (wired to the DLink router)

HP recommends plugging an ethernet cable into the printer during initial setup, so I plugged it in to the wireless router. My initial attempt was to setup using the Dell laptop. During the setup I can see the printer get an IP address from the router using the wired connection and it pings the laptop IP address sevaral times (with ACK). As setup progresses, the wired connnection is dropped and the printer attempts to get an IP address using the wireless connection (different MAC). The printer fails to get an IP address, so a 169.254.x.x address is assigned. Finally, the wired connection is re-established and setup displays an error saying setup failed due to unable to communicate with the printer.

I also tried doing the setup from the wired home built PC, and tried making the wireless router the DHCP server instead of the wired router. I also tried no WPA2 encryption. No difference.

Next I tried almost two hours of HP tech support via Chat. They walked me through the same steps I already tried, then through setup ... Read more

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".

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.

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.

Does anyone have an HP deskjet 5550 printer?

I was given this printer bare with no install instructions, no cd,etc.
I already had a spare usb cable and i got the install instructions and drivers from HP. I installed this printer into a spare test unit that i keep just for testing. Its P3 733 and has win xp pro. 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?

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

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'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?

If it matters at all I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64Bit

The Desktop the printer is plugged into is running Windows XP Professional 32bit

And I was able to install the printer on another Desktop over my network that was running Windows 7 RC 32Bit with no problems

Thanks in advance

sometimes networking printers on win 7 can be a chore. You may have to install it as a local printer first then as a networked printer

Hope this helps

I have a PC with Windows 2000 Pro. A Hewlett Packard DeskJet 845c printer was donated to our ministry, along with the USB cable and the CD, but no manual. I am having trouble setting it up.

Since I didn't have a manual, I looked on the web for installation information. The closest I found was on this website so I followed their instructions.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...en&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=bpd09138#N100B8

First I filled the paper tray. Then I connected the USB cable and plugged it into the power strip. (The instructions said to press the power button to turn on the printer, but I didn't need to as the green power light lit up as soon as I plugged in the adapter.)

The next step was to insert the cartridges. I assumed it already had cartridges but decided to follow that step anyway to be sure I didn't miss a step.

The instructions said to open the top of the printer, and the Resume light would flash until it is closed. The OUT tray was still up so I lowered it, then opened the top of the printer. I looked to see if the light was flashing. There was no flashing light, and the green power light was off.

Since doing that step, I have not been able to get the printer to power up, and a noise (a consistent light bump sound) is coming from inside the printer - almost like something is stuck. It only stops if I unplug the power.

In the process of trying to find out why it wouldn't power up again, I unplugged the power ... Read more

I borrowed a friend's laptop (Dell Latitude) that is running Windows XP operating system.
I need help in finding a printer driver for an HP Deskjet 5740 printer. The CD that came with the printer doesn't recognize Windows XP.

Please help!

A:Printer Driver for HP Deskjet 5740

I find that a bit hard to believe. An Hp cd and Xp doesn't recognise it? If that is the case go to HP.com, the driver for your machine is there.

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.

The printer, as the subject title reads is refusing to print. The power indicator button just blinks alone with the paper indicator lights. I try to turn it off, using the power button, but am unable to. I unplug the power from the back of the computer for minutes at a time and once it's plugged up again, the power button light and paper lights still blink. I have done practically everything possible to get this to print, to stop that blinking but nothing.

I've run several diagnosis programs and they all say the same thing that I already knew, it's a problem with the connectivity. I've done everything that they have told me to do, restarting the computer, unplugging the printer. I've done everything short of throwing it out of the window (which if I didn't need to print these documents I would).

I had to uninstall my HP Deskjst F2180 Printer as it wouldn't let me scan or copy documents.
After uninstalling everything I then re-installed using the CD provided, however the computer doesn't recognise that the printer is connected and won't install it.

I have followed the instructions as per the CD, but to no avail. I have tried the USB cable in different ports on the computer, but that also doesn't work.
I've also been on the HP website to try and find any new updates that the printer may require, but this to doesn't work. I have tried using a different USB cable but again nothing. I know the cable works as I have tried it with something else.

Can anyone please help or give advice. I really need my printer to work and can't really afford to replace it as it is only about 18 months old.

I have a DELL Dimensions 5000 PC that is running on Windows XP.

Cheers guys

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?
