Preferred Solution: HP DESKJET 1220 Printer Trouble Shoot

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.)


First, some background. I had this all set up and it was working. I installed 2 other printers and drivers and started having problems with my computer hanging up and other issues with the HP software. I decided to uninstall all of my HP software and drivers and start over.

I have 2 printers--HP Officejet Pro L7580 and an HP Deskjet 9650 that I want connected with the print server.

I downloaded the new drivers for the deskjet 9650. I have the software installed for the print server. I can open that software with my laptop and see the print server. I started installing the printer drivers using a wiresless network, but it couldn't find the printer.

I tired restarting the print server, but still it cannot find the printer. I tried putting in the IP address for the print server, but when I do it says that the HP deskjet 9650 installer has encountered and error, and it closes.

Any suggestions?

reading through some of the post in here, i'm sure one or more of you know whats happenning. (fingers crossed)

A:how would i trouble shoot this???

First, Try to boot with less Hardware as possible.
One hard drive, graphic card, one stick of memory, cpu (obviously)
If that works, maybe there's PowerSupply problem.

Secondo, Try to boot only with PowerSupply connected to the motherboard
No graphic Card, No Ram.
For sure you'll have BEEPING witch indicate there's a problem with video card and/or memory, but just try it see if the computer stays on.

From there, if you still have the same issue, the CPU or the Motherboard could be damaged, also it can be the PowerSupply.
I'll first try another PowerSupply (easier to change than the Motherboard/CPU). Then another CPU and then another MOBO.

I think for sure it's a power problem. So start from the source (PowerSupply), then CPU then MOBO.....

My son dropped his Game Boy and I was wondering if you knew any information or websites that my husband might visit that would help him repair it. He is good at fixing stuff if he has something to read about it or some sort of diagram. It doesn't come on now. If I plug it in to renew the battery, the light will not stay on. Thanks for your help.

P.S. I am not the smartest mom, so please explain in simple language. I appreciate it. The first one got poked with an umbrella in the car, so I would really like to be able to fix this one and not have to spend the money again.

Everytime I try to sign into msn, it always says that they are unable to sign me, so I go troubleshooting, everything goes fine until I get to my Proxy Server. It says that my Proxy Server is offline or has invalid settings, yesterday I went on a website that allows me to see my IP adress as well as my Proxy, however it detected that there are NO proxies on my network, how on earth do i fix this? This doesn't just affect my MSN, it also affects my game progs. My main problem is that msn thinks that I have a proxy and tries to acess the net via my proxy just like any of my game progs, now my question is how do I get a proxy?

Hi. I just bought an HP Officejet Pro 8600 a month or two ago, and now it seems I just bought myself a headache. It prints sometimes, and sometimes it doesn't. Faxes sometimes, and usually it doesn't. It's about to drive me around the bend. I'm on a new HP TouchSmart computer, running Windows 7. The Officejet will SAY it's connected, but the computer will say it's not. Even better is when I can see (on the printer screen)/hear a fax call coming in, it says it's accepting the fax, and then...? Nada. It just disappears, no printout, not holding it in the fax memory, nothing. I don't know if any of this could be related to the issue my computer seems to be having where it frequently, for no apparent reason, makes me disconnect from my connection (even though it shows bars and says it's connected just fine) and then reconnect (to the exact same Linksys it was already ON before it decided to go on strike) before it will let me get online, but I wouldn't be surprised.


Someone please help before I start kicking the cat...

A:Just Shoot Me... or My Printer

Hello and welcome to TSG!!

Two questions: How are you connected to the printer, network or direct connection? Have you tried HP Tech Support? Surely within a month or two you should still be under warranty.

The fax operation should be independent of your PC. It should be a stand-alone fax system. If you hear the call coming in, the fax answers, it should work, even if your PC is powered off.

I Have spent the afternoon putting together an inexpensive computer for practice. I have the video card, hard drive, floppy and DVD drive installed. Although I am not at all sure everything is installed right. When I turn the machine on all the fans work, the keyboard flashes and I can here what I think is the hard drive.

Hello to everyone out there, I'm new to the forums so if I break any rules or anything, please be nice.

Well, I'm having a little problem with my CD-RW drive...

I'm running on Windows XP Home Edition
AMD Athlon 1.53Ghz

My problem.. I would insert a disk, doesn't matter what it is, it would stay in the drive for about... 30seconds and just pop back out like it couldn't read it.

I wouldn't get an error or anything.. On top of that, I just formatted my computer 4 days ago, I formatted because of this reason and I guess it didn't help. I tried uninstalling the driver from Device Manager and installing it back, no luck.

Inside Device Manager, I do not see a "?" or an "!" at all.. So, if someone can please reply ASAP it would be greatly appreciated...

A:Installation problems, please help me trouble shoot this


I had a windows 8 machine go into the reboot restart loop after an update once, and after I reinstalled the OS it would still go into the loop. After a couple of hours of frustration, I pulled a memory stick out and the it booted normally. Why would a computer that was working fine with both sticks in, receive a system update, and then quit working, and the reason was a defective memory stick...it didn't make sense, but it just goes to show that a memory stick can quit working at any time.

So, yes, if your memory is not on the list of approved "qualifying vendors" then yes, you could experience issues. Some MB(s) or very particular and some or not. So I would try a different brand if you can...it might save you some trial and error. Hope this helps.

Many of us on the forums actually do not recommend automated optimization tools for Windows 7. Windows 7 does a much better job of handling its own optimization than its predecessors did. We especially do not recommend registry cleaning as an "optimization" step because automated registry cleaning causes more harm to the registry than it actually repairs.

In the future, if you need help optimizing Windows 7, please post a thread in Performance & Maintenance - Windows 7 Forums or follow the tutorial enclosed in that forum to Optimize Windows 7.

MSI Afterburner/RivaTuner is known to cause instability with systems. Please remove the software.
It appears you have an overclock on the CPU. If this is the case, your crashes are likely being caused by the overclock on the CPU. If you are overclocking the CPU, please remove the overclock on the CPU.

Looked at mfg website for drivers. None seem relevant to the hardware, so I just went with what Windows Update provided.

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.


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".

When you say"hasn't been used in awhile" how long are we talking? Sometimes ink will harden to a point that thingsdon't want to move(just like rust).

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

Is a HP Deskjet 5650 capable of printing custom length banners? I have everything selected on the printer page that has anything to do with printing banners with no result.

I am using Inkscape to create banners and then print the banners.

printing banners between 24 and 40 inches long.) When I try to print the
banner, only the first page prints. Everything then stops like the
print job was completed. I get great one page banners but....

I am using a PC running XP with an HP Deskjet 5650 printer. I then tried to print a
banner using my second computer which has Win 98se and a different HP printer

correctly for printing the banner of this size. Is this a correct assumption?

I am using Inkscape 0.42.2. The banners look great on the screen but... Please
help me to print the complete banner(s).

My problem is that everytime I print, I have a ArcadeTown download pop-up with instructions for setup. I had downloaded a Alien Shooter from ArcadeTown at one time for my grandson and he hated the game. I uninstalled it and now everytime I print I get this setup download. I have tried to delete it from as many files as possible, but can't seem to get rid of it. Any suggestion? I would uninstall my printer and re-install it but I got the computer and printer from a friend so I don't have disk for printer installation. If I knew more about computers I could probably download from a site, but I am not that computer literate. Thanks for any suggestions. Lana

The printer drivers are all downloadable for every Windows version from HP.

If we knew your Windows version a more direct link could be found, but go to http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html?pageDisplay=drivers

And enter 712C in the window and go from there.

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?

Thanks for any help!

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.

Hi a problem on a friends machine they upgraded their motherboard and processor, but when they tried to install their HP Deskjet 845c usb printer the instalation failed.

The usb cable and hub have been checked and the other three usb items are working.

Any ideas please: all I can think of is that the instalation disc might be faulty or there is some kind of software conflict

I want to connect my 'redundant XP' via a USB cable to see if I can use it as a printer server. It does not detect the presence of the printer which is however shown as installed. When I click Add Printer the response is that 'spooler is not available.' I have not been able to find 'spooler' on the XP. How do I deal with this?

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?


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 hope someone can help me with this. I have tried everything.

I purchased this printer at christmas. I had a hp deskjet 920c and thought I would like a newer one. I hooked everything up by the directions. When I tried to print out something all I got was A bunch of letters, numbers, symbols etc.
I called hp tech support. We went through the whole set up again and even changed out the cables. Uninstalled and reinstalled the printer. Still same thing.
HP sent me a new printer. Guess what ? Same thing again.
I called again. We went through the same thing again. No luck.
To make a long story short. I am waiting on my 4th printer to come in the mail.
I am running windows ME.
My son has a pc and it has windows xp. I hooked up to his and the same thing happened.
This is really starting to get the best of me. I have used a lot of HP products before and never had any problem.
I no you can get a lemon sometimes but come on three in a row.
Please can someone offer any help........

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.

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?

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

I have a Windows XP with a HP Deskjet 895cse printer. My printer will print from the Internet but makes all the right noises but prints nothing from MS Word.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer but that does not fix the problem. Any suggestions? Also, I can not find HP toolbox.

In an effort to clean up my computer so that it would not run so slowly, I ran defrag and removed a number of old programs that were only frequently used. Prior to all the cleanup, this printer performed very well.
