Hp deskjet 697c won't print

Q: Hp deskjet 697c won't print

I bought an hp deskjet 697c printer from the thrift store w/no paper work manual or disc...it turns on & installed to my computer but won't print anything even a test page. On the spool it just says error & a balloon comes up that says printer failed to print document. I pushed the resume button & a page printed that said paper mismatch so I kno it works but why won't it print anything I send to it. I have done numerous troubleshooting...restarting computer...reseting printer..reinstalling port...changing ports...changing spool properties...checked all plugs & cables...ink is full & properly installed...i was going to install a new or different driver but it says that the proper driver is installed for this printer for windows xp which is what I have...nothing seems to work. Please help me resolve this problem I don't kno what else to try...Thank you

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Hp deskjet 697c won't print

You can download the proper driver from here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=61014&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=9&submit.x=7&lang=en&cc=us

When it is downloaded, install it according to instructions. Will work better than installed XP driver.

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

Hope someone can help as this is driving me mad!

Last night I went to print a document from my printer (HP Deskjet 1360) it failed to print. On checking control panel, the printer was showing as 'offline' but with no means of restoring it on line via right click menu.

I trawled the HP website and downloaded complete set of new Vista compatible drivers/installation software (all 106mb of it!) but printer still failed to print.

This time I received an error message stating that the printer cartridge on the right hand side was 'incompatible' which is confusing as both cartridges are HP originals.

I switched the PC off a while and when I rebooted I noticed that the printer, in Control Panel, was showing as 'ready' however attempting to print bought up the 'incompatible printer cartridge' error message.

I was thinking if the problem could lie with the USB cable linking printer and PC and if it would be worth replacing it. It would be a cheaper option that replacing the printer which I will have to do at this rate.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am having problems printing from my Windows NT Workstation. I have uninstalled and installed the printer software and it still doesn't print. I have tried the printer on a WIN98 machine and it works fine.

I had this problem before and a tech told us that it was bad printer port so he installed a new one and it worked for a while but now we are back to the same problem. I also tired printing on LPT1 but it didn't work either. The new printer port that the tech installed is LPT2. Any suggestions?

I've got a friend who can't print anything from Word Processors. The test page prints fine and pages from the internet print fine. I've tried re-installing the printer and the printer drivers and the word processors but to no avail. I checked the HP site and the diagnostic programs there say the printer is cabled correctly and communicating with the computer and has the right driver. When I tried to get an updated driver from HP the site said the driver on the MS XP install disk was the best one to use. The HP 810C is set as the default printer. When a file is sent from Word, Wordpad or Notebood the printer starts, the head moves back and forth and a blank sheet is output. Anyone got a clue?

I have an HP deskjet 722C about 7 yr old that has a parallel connection only. I recently updated my 5 Y/O pc to a more current model that does not have a parallel printer port. The printer prints fine & I have several spare cartridges that cost a lot of $$ that i don't want to waste so I'm not eager to buy another printer. I therefore bought a parallel to usb cable hoping it would solve the problem. When i attached the cable, windows responded by recognizing it (good) & announced that it was installed correctly (good). I saw the printer in devices & printers (good) & set it as my default printer. However, when i try to print a document, everything seems to be fine, including print preview, but the printer is totally silent, not a peep. D&P shows 1 document in the cue, waiting for printing, but nothing happens. The printer seems to be the only link in the chain that does'nt know that everything is hunky dory.

Is there a simple solution to this or is the printer toast?

Thanks for any help.

I think that unit was introduced at least 1 1/2 years ago, so it makes sense that the included disk would not have Windows 7 support. Suggest you remove/delete whatever you have and install it fresh using the latest package.

Hi, just had printer delivered and it won't print, gives constant paper jam errors when there aren't any paper jams, won't turn off and the light won't stop flashing. When says onscreen that it's deleting printjob, takes forever, and am having to reboot computer a couple of times before printjob finally isn't listed. Only way can turn printer off is to unplug power. Haven't been able to print anything, even when the paper jam messages aren't coming up and it looks onscreen as if it's printing.

Cartridges don't seem to be sitting right ... would have thought would be fully underneath at the left, but one cartridge is showing, and every time I try to press the power-off button or cancel-button, the cartridges clunk as if are trying to sit underneath, but don't. Not sure if printer's taken a bash on way here; box was bit old-looking. Have looked at all the information, and have emailed HP's tech support, but no idea how long it could be until hear back, so wanted to post as had very helpful replies previously. Fed up, got some stuff really need to print out!

ok, got this beast for free, plugged it in, loaded drivers, went to print a test page and, there is some clicking noise, it loads a sheet of paper and then the yellow resume light flashes, no pattern, just constant blinking.

A friend has a HP 560C running on an old 486dx. When he tries to print an email out everything works fine except that the bottom line of print doesn't print correctly. It prints the top 10% or so of the line but the rest is a combo of blur and non print. I checked the printer settings but could find no settings in there that I felt would affect the bottom print line. Never did find any scaleable margins or page size which I thought might help. Page size seemed to be preset .
The system uses Win95 O.S., not enough memory to upgrade to 98, and he uses explorer and web based email through Juno.

I did try to print from Eduro and the page printed in its entirity, but we ended up with the header info. Tried copy/paste and lost the last line when printing out of word pad or note pad.

Any suggestions or solutions would be appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

Hello everyone,
Ok, basically I have an HP Deskjet 656c (also known as the apollo 2500/2600). The problem I have is that it will not print anything when running on the Windows XP O/S. I used to have it hooked up to my ME O/S machine and it worked fine. When I attempt to print off of any word processing program (even notepad) the printer just sits there, and it doesn't even get pooled. When I run it inside of the print assstant it feeds the paper through, and nothing is printed.

- I assumed that the driver CD that came with my printer, was for windows 95/98/ME/Millenium...SO I went to the HP site and downlaoded the driver that stated it was for the Windows XP O/S. I did a complete clean installation of it, following the onscreen and websites instructions. The same problem above had occured when I tried to re-print..

So basically I am not sure if it is my computer, O/S or the driver file?

Sorry for the long read, hope it was clear enough to understand...if not just post and Ill clarify anything

Thanks for reading!

P.S - I am running Windows XP Professional, and when I say clean install I mean removing it from add/remove, deleting it from the printers/faxes and also deleting files in the Program Files folder

I have two HP Deskjet 3050 printers; one on main machine with Win7 Ult, and the other on backup machine with Win8 Pro OEM. I am running MS Office 2010 on both machines.

I have files with XL Spreadsheets created from MS Office 2003, 2007 and 2010.

All versions of all XL spreadsheet files can be printed on both W7 and also on Vista, (prior to replacing it with W8).

W8 has the following problem:

1. All older version spreadsheets, (Excel 2003 & 2007), on W8 can be printed OK.

2. All new Excel 2010 spreadsheets created on W8 can be printed OK.

3. All existing Excel 2010 spreadsheets created on either Win7 or Vista by MS Office 2010, will not print on Win8.

When print preview is opened in the spreadsheet, it shows the section of the spreadsheet to be printed. If "Print" is clicked, a small window momentarily appears on the screen showing the print instruction has been sent to the printer.

In the "What's being printed" window, (found in Control Panel > Devices and Printers > What's being printed), the job is listed as queued to be printed, but nothing happens.

After 3 or 4 seconds, the queued job disappears from the "What's being printed" window.

I've discussed this with Hewlett Packhard, and spent an hour or more with them trying to trouble shoot it to no avail. HP believe it is an incompatibility issue with W8, and asked me to take it up with Microsoft , and also with this forum.

Has anyone experienced a similar problem ... Read more

A:HP Deskjet 3050 won't print spreadsheet

Update: The problem appears to be a security/compatibility issue.

1. Create a new Excel spreadsheet in Windows 7 using MS Office 2010

2. Open it in either Windows 7 or 8. Then click: File > Check for Issues > Click: Inspect Docment.

Nore: Compatibility is green ticked to show no issues.
3. As a result of the inpsection, the following identical problems are shown in both Windows 7 & 8.



4. With this information left intact the document can be printed in Windows 7 but not in Windows 8.

5. In Windows 8, when attempting to print it, no error message comes up. However, it shows the document queued to be printed, in: Control Panel > Deskjet Printer > See what's printing. However, after 4 or 5 seconds, the item disappears from the queue.

6. If the data is removed completely, the document prints OK in Windows 8.

As I have large numbers of such Excel files I will have to manually change every one of them to print successfully on Windows 8; and this is impractical.

I tried to talk to Microsoft Australia by phone but they said if the job was sent to the printer and was queued, there was nothing wrong in W8, and would not discuss it any further.

Does anyone know how I can get in touch with Microsoft to report the problem in full detail to them?

You could always try turning the spooler service off...then turning it on again. Or simply delete/uninstall the printer and software...and then reinstall it.

I believe that's what I do at times (i don't print often and don't really remember).

Help! I just refilled my HP DESKJET 3847 (ink cartridges 27 and 28) for the first time right after the ink levels were shown low and the red does not print at all! Only the yellow, blue and black ink shows. Everytihng was printing perfectly fine until I refilled it. Is it possible that there might be air bubbles inside the RED channel or something blocking it from the REd from going out? Or I refilled it too quickly? Whatever the cause is, can there be a solution to solve this problem?

I already did all the "cleaning Cartridge" tests and procedures both from the software setup and physically as well with the q-tip dabbed with warm water and rubbing alcohol. i even used my lexmark rubber nozzle to suck out some ink, even though it was too small for the HP cartridge, some ink did eventually go out and the RED printed for a while but about half page it just faded away into YELLOW.

Does anyone know an alternative solution into fixing this? Thank you for your time.

**EDIT**: When I was sucking out the ink several times, sometimes it would be blue, red, yellow, and green. All in all, there would always be bubbles bubbling up in the syringe. Should that be normal?

It would very much be of great assistance if you could fill out your specifications on your system profile. This allows us to answer your questions knowing a bit about your system and reduces asking questions over and over. Also if you ask a question and have to go off and do other things the last thing you want is more questions to answer when the idea was to get your problem solved.

So no the questions begin, what version of Windows 7 are you using 32 or 64 bit? How are you converting your LPT connection, is it by means of a Centronics LPT to USB connector? IF that is what you are using it had problems working in Vista 64 bit so I imagine it hasn;t changed in Windows 7. It needs a real LPT connection.

Hi!

I'm hoping someone here has some better ideas - I'm pretty tech savvy and this one has me totally defeated.

I have a home business and I use a wide format printer, an HP Deskjet 510c that was working great via a small print server running on a Raspberry Pi until 2 days ago. I was experiencing some lag with a software program that is specific to my business and my husband decided he would be helpful and "fix" it. He has no idea what he did but now I can't print to this printer even when it's directly connected to my PC.

I am not having any issues printing to the other printer, a wireless standard-size laser printer.

Jobs just don't show up in the queue at any paper size other than 8.5 x 11 when the printer only has a 42" roll, not 8.5 x 11 sheets. There seems to be no way to tell it that it contains a roll because when I select the correct paper size from the print dialog box, it simply doesn't put the job in the queue. The printer itself is set up for the roll and knows the roll is there. I can get it to print a test page or a single line of text from notepad, provided I tell it the media size is 8.5 x 11, which it then prints on a 42" x 11" strip of paper without protest.

What we've tried:

1. Uninstalled and reinstalled driver. Printer no longer has drivers on HP's website so apparently husband found one on some 3rd party site (sigh).

2. Updated all relevant software and windows updates

Moved my HP Deskjet 5550 from win 98 to XP using a parallel to USB cable. Obtained latest drivers and installed. Test print and calibration both correct but won't print out anything but first centimeter on page before ejecting in any other application. Print preview (even the HP supplied one) shows one page correctly but print queue lists it as 3 pages!

Is this to do with XP the cable or what? Have uninstalled and reinstalled - same problem. Have checked page set up in application and printer and all appears correct.

Can't understand why test page correct but nothing else!

Any help welcome!
 

A:Solved: Deskjet 5550 won't print properly

Umm... okay, when you say 'parallel to USB', do you mean a USB/Parallel adaptor? If so, why not just use a USB cable, since the 5550 has an either/or system? (I have 2 of these machines, one of which is plugged into two computers - one through the parallel, one through the USB.)

Remember though, since the 5550 has both jacks available, you have to chose which setup to use when doing so. If you are using a parallel to parallel hookup, the printer has to be plugged into the parallel jack and powered on while the software is being installed. If you're trying to plug it in via a USB to USB connection, you must install the software BEFORE plugging the machine into the USB jack - the install will tell you when to plug it in. If you are using a USB/Parallel adaptor, ITS OWN software must be installed first. The adaptor then needs to be plugged into the computer, and THEN you plug the printer into the adaptor and power it up, followed by installing the software via the Parallel to Parallel method.

Now, the other thing to remember is to either use the 5550's install disk to remove the software, or simply delete the 5550's icon from the Printer's and Faxes listing on your Control Pannel. I do NOT reccommend using "Add or Remove Software" for printers, since this program can remove too much, such as registry information from Windows.

Good luck!

Dual question on the same machine, that might actually be related.

This machine is a laptop running xp pro, that is linked to a desktop also running xp pro...

The desktop is serving a printer over the network, that both machines can print to fine...

The laptop however, cannot print anything in quicken. No printers to select.

In addition, I cannot install this hp printer into the laptop though i am installing it accordin to the instructions. I first load the software, than when prompted, connect the printer, than it takes a while, but it eventually continues, and finishes the installation. However, the printer does not show up as an available printer in the control panel, and is nowhere to be found in the machine. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and then uninstalling and removing th registry entries under software in regedit, and then reinstalling, but that did not work either. The computer is 2 weeks old. Any and all ideas welcome and appreciated!

I just purchased an HP Deskjet 2130 with free Hallmark Print Studio software.  I keep getting a message that the code is not valid.  I have tried it with the dashes and without and no luck.

That is supposed to be a free download.  Another inquiry/replies can be found here.

I have been going through the same thing.  Changed cable companies a while ago and have yet to be able to get the printer to work with the new wifi.  Been fighting with it tonight, and can't get anywhere.  When I pull up the printer IP, it shows it is connected to my network but not to "ePrint."  I have also tried every solution that I could come across and still can't get anything to work.  Did you ever get this resolved?Thanks!

I migrated my HP Deskjet 870Cxi from a WinXp laptop to a new Win7 32bit laptop. I use a parallel to USB printer connector cable. The printer works fine under WinXP.
Now the printer will not print under Win7. All jobs are held pending. I can confirm under Windows Devices and Printers that 870c printer driver is recognized. I tried to print a page from Notepad, a test page and text alignment page.

HP website says that Win7 has all the drivers and it will load them. I confirm that Win7 does load drivers for 870c but NOT 870Cxi.

I checked Windows 7 hardware compatibility at Microsoft.com where it lists a couple of hundred Deskjets that are compatible including 870c, but it does not even list 870Cxi. The nearest comparable listed model is 890Cxi. But again the drivers for 890Cxi is already loaded on Win7 32bit. But Win7 chooses 870c.

I was hoping to rely on HP 890Cxi backward compatibility with Win67

Now I am stuck. Can anyone help please?

Those drivers are usually for a number of models at the same time and I expect that they will work fine for your model, too.

They installed all right, didn't they?

If the driver installs a virtual port, try changing the port number.

Hi Folks,

After I installed the new Mozilla Firefox browser, I've been unable to print. I don't know how that could happen -- I don't see the connection. I tried reinstalling the printer software, but that didn't work.

Do you folks have any idea what could have happened?

Thanks in advance!

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?

I recently formated my c:\ drive and reinstalled the operating system. I went from WinMe to 98. The printer port is listed as fine in device manager, but when I try to run the printer instalation which I downloaded from http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...c=en&product=61014&os=20&softwareitem=dj520en .
Although during setup it gives me no ports to choose from and the setup consequently fails. The printer and port worked fine before I formated my drive. Could anybody possibly help?
Thanks.

I'm having difficulty getting the printer which is attached to a Win XP Pro system to be available for use by a Win ME system on the same network.

The printer is a HP Deskjet 697C. It is installed and working on the Win XP Pro system.
Both systems can see each other on the network and transfer files back and forth with no difficulty.
The printer on the XP system is marked for Sharing and File and Print Sharing is enabled.
The XP Firewall is turned off, as we use Zone Alarm Security Suite.

When I use Add Printer on the WinME machine, and try to browse for a network printer, I can expand the network to see the computer name of the XP machine, but the shared printer doesn't show up as a choice.

What are we doing wrong?
 

A:Solved: Can't Add HP 697C Printer connected to WinXP Pro into WinME printer choices

What is the share name for the printer? Win ME uses NetBIOS for local shares, and has a limit of 12 characters to a share name.

Whenever I print to the shared printer on my Windows 7 desktop, the print job will just sit in the print queue. If I stop and then start the print spooler, the job will print. It happens from an XP laptop. Print jobs sent from the local Windows 7 computer print just fine.
How can i solve this one ? :(

This issue with some particular laptop running windows Xp and windows 7 Home

A:Whenever I print to the shared printer he print job will just sit in the print queue

So, the Windows 7 Desktop has the printer physically attached to it and it's shared?
And the XP laptop is sharing the printer through the network? If I understand you correctly?
If so, on the XP Laptop, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. Are there any devices with yellow flags? Or Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is there an Unknown Device? Or any listings for the printer? If so, right click it and Uninstall it. Now go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Add Remove Programs uninstall any drivers or software for the printer. Now,go to Printers and Faxes, and if the printer icons is there, Right click the shared printer icon and Delete it. And Restart the computer. Now when the computer comes back up, go to the printer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in the model# for the printer and download the driver for the printer for XP and install it. Now, go to Start/Run and type the computer name of the Windows 7 machine (ex) \\ComputerName and press enter. A window should open up with the shared drives on the 7 computer, with the shared printer. Right click the shared printer and choose Connect. This will add the printer to Printers and Faxes again. Right click this printer/Properties and print a Test Page.

Just migrated our office to a new Server 2012R2 Print server. about a dozen printers installed via GPO to Windows 7/64 workstations. Mostly HP's running Universal PS driver (6.1), plus the odd Kip plotter and Xerox Copier.   For maybe 4 users
out of 30 some, there is a printing problem. When a print job is sent, it appears in the queue and then is immediately deleted.   No other indication that anything is amiss. No events fire, no dimming of the icons or exclamation points,
 no error messages.
 That's the consistent part. There is also some inconsistent (but still bad) behavior I'm finding on the different PCs. For some, deleting and re-running gpupdate will  bring the printers back and printing properly, but only for a short time. Sometimes
only one or two printers will print, sometimes not. Sometimes logging in as a different user will install the printers, sometimes no.
 I've been fiddling with this over the past few days and gotten absolutely no where.  Now I don't know what to look at next. Any idea would be appreciated!

Hi, I just purchased an used computer with Windows 7Home Premium x64, this is an HP Slimline s5610f. The problem that I have is with a Brother HL 2040 series printer. It gave me a really hard time to install the drivers that I downloaded from the Brother website I kept getting a "0x00000057" error and "could not find suitable driver for this printer" error. Finally I decided to take the driver folders for this printer from my wife's computer and copied them to my computer and put them in the drivers repository under System32 and was able to install the printer after that with no problems.

The problem that I have right now is that the printer won't print, even though it told me that the driver installation was successful.

1-the print button is grayed out
2-If I click "printer properties" it tells me that the drivers have not been installed and asks if I want to install them.
3-If I install the drivers at this prompt it tells me that the drivers have been successfully installed.
4-Now it lets me access the printer properties but when I click "print test page" either nothing happens or it tells me that it failed to print and access is denied
5-If i close printer properties and try to access it again it tells me that the printer drivers have not been installed.

I get the same results with the printer connected locally trough USB or on another computer through the network.
All the other computers in the house print to this printer witho... Read more
