Hey all,
Im getting a new computer, it comes with a free printer
How easy do you think it would be able to sell it on eBay, and for how much?
And an Nvidia XFX 8600 GTS, how easily would that sell? (it still has the box and the connectors, like new.)
Thanks

I've had the HP DeskJet 950C printer for my Windows 2000 Pro system for over a year now. It was working perfectly printing out black & white and color photos. About 6 months ago the unit started printing out red color images for color pictures which I concluded to be the color ink cartridge was running low (no green/blue left). I continued to use the printer without replacing the color ink catridge mostly printing b&w documents. Around 1 month ago I wanted to print out a Word document which contained a table with a 45% gray shaded background. On printout the table had no gray scale (it printed nothing in this area). I was thinking that a setting must have been off since the black catridge was running low but still had lots of juice to printout many other docs, and gray scale was the result of b&w dithering. After many hours of frustration I've concluded that the black catridge isnt responsible for gray scale and the color catridge IS.

I decided to replace the color ink catridge with a new one. On printout I still don't see any gray being printed out. In fact I tried printing a color image which resulted in a black and mostly white image. It seems the printer isnt printing color!! What the heck is going on?!?

Here are some facts about my situation:
x The HP Printer Toolbox utility reports the black ink catridge as low (0% - Though I've printed out 50 more pages of documents despite the value) and the new color ink catridge as high (90% -- It ... Read more

I am using a Deskjet hp970cxi printer. Colors are missing totally. I am using WinXP. I have tried many things like changing the driver(downloaded from 'hp' site), changing the settings etc. The cartridges are good. Except for color, everything seems to be normal with the printer.

Please help in solving this problem. Thanx.

try printing a printer test page. If you still have the printer manual it should tell you how to do this. I am not talking about the test page you can print from thecomputer desk top it is really a demo page but it displays the colors by printing a butterfly or something. It is possible that the nozzles on the color cartridge have become clogged with dry ink if you had left it unused for some time.

My HP 697C printer will not print anything in color. The default settings under printer properties show to be "Normal" and *Automatic". I just read on one of your threads that it is important to occasionally print in color to prevent the cartridge from drying out - I was unaware of this and I usually change the settings each time to "EconoFast" and "Print in Grayscale" when I print web pages and etc. The color cartridge is about a year old and very seldom used, The last time I remember actually printing in color was probably about 2-3 months ago, and prior to that I had never experienced this type of problem. I did not notice any changes in the quality of the color at that time (fading etc.) When a cartridge dries out does it happen gradually with the color fading with each printed page or what ?

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!!

A:HP Deskjet 697C will not print in color

Hi Kraft
Yes a color cartridge can just dry out quickly and not work. You should try printing a test page from your printer to double check. Most HP printers have some type of self test print you can run by pushing the buttons on the control panel. Check in your instruction book to find out how to run yours. If you still have no color you know its not windows or a driver causing you a problem. BOL

I own an HP Deskjet 950c color printer. I recently installed a new color ink color cartridge and find the printer still not printing any color. The old ink cartridge is an HP c6578d, which worked fine, and the new cartridge is an unknown brand with the id: HP C6578D Replacement Cartridge (High Quality).

I've tried soaking the ink head nozzle in rubbing alcohol and dabbing it onto a paper towel. I've spotted red streaks. My Windows 2000 pro OS has the latest drivers and is capable of printing b&w docs.

Perhaps the new ink catridge is not compatible despite the same id ??

I have an HP business inkjet 2300 & Windows XP desk top. My printer is only prining in black or this funky dark pink and light pink mode. (Grey Scale?) How do I remedy this. I know the ink is full because I just replaced all the colors thinking I was running out of the primary colors bet that didn't fix it. Any Ideas? Thanks!!!
 

A:color printer not printing in full spectrum color

The pink is usually a sign that the ink is about to run out. Check the printer settings in the Windows control panel for the printing mode. From there, you should be able to do some diagnostics. Try a print head alignment and print head cleaning, just try all of the different options and then try and re-print. If not, you could have some dud inks? Very unlikely, but if you bought them cheaply from a not so good brand or had them re-filled then it could be an issue.

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".

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.

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 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'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?

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).

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 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

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).

Love this old printer (supports both parallel and serial)

Put a USB to Parallel Port Connector
Used Windows Update to download Win7 driver for this printer.
Showed "i" on Printer
Customized and changed Port to USB001 Virtual Printer Port
Changed to Check.
Still Won't Print.

=================================
Questions:
1) I assume that since it says a virtual port it is running through the common
USB controller and hence the USB plug can be in any USB (e.g. USB 2 or 3)?

2) Where do I go from here?

The problem is the number of control signals, or lack of, that are available on the USB/Serial Converter. I've never seen one of these work, or a post with someone getting one to work with an HP.

Time for a new Printer.

Bought this as new installed drivers, the process of installing went fine and my device is ready to use....printer is ticked in printers/devices.......now the problem, nothing works! I try to print, set preference and customise printer and get error message saying device drivers not installed??.....I've tried the drivers from the disk and from HP website both full and basic drivers......everything installs ok but comes back to the same problem when trying to print ie the printer does not seem to be recognized with drivers installed incorrectly...

Welcome polesworth to 7 Forums.

Unplug printer's power cable and usb connection from your computer/reboot your computer/then plug in power cable and usb connection and let Windows 7 find your printer.

I had to do this with both of my printer's(Canon and HP) when I first installed windows 7.
Report back and let us know if this method helps.
