Q: Printer HP Deskjet 1000 J100 series

I'm trying to check the ink levels for my printer. For HP Deskjet 1000 J100 series. I've installed and set up the printer but don't know where the control panel or HP toolbox is. I opened the HP Deskjet icon, but the only thing that opens is a window asking if I want to install a new printer. I opened the HP Smart app, and the printer says that it's Ready, but when I click on printer settings, then print quality tools, it says "This feature is not available for your selected printer through HP smart app. To check control panel."

I've been going around in circles trying to find the control panel or toolbox. Also, I've been using the printer for a couple of years now, with no problems. So it's hooked up correctly. It's only now I decided to use the Check Printer ink function.

Maybe I need to install another driver or something. All I want to do is check printer ink levels. Please help.

Thanks, Josie

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.

Just purchased an inexpensive HP printer (Deskjet 1000 J110a). In the past I've done a lot of printing, on 2 different printers, from PhotoImpact Pro 13--without problems. But with this new printer, while the image on the print preview screen looks ok, it prints twice as wide as it should--but no taller. The problem does NOT extend to other software such as MS Word, Paint.

If I skip the print preview screen, it prints correctly. But then I can't re-size or move the image where I want it.

Any ideas?

Thx

Is there any way or any work around to get the HP Deskjet 1000 j110 printer to work in Windows XP 64? HP says the j110 is not supported for xp 64 but I was wondering if anyone had messed with this and figured a way with some other drivers or some way to make it work in the os xp-64?
Thanks
 

A:get the HP Deskjet 1000 j110 printer to work in Windows XP 64

If HP doesn't have the drivers, then you aren't likely to find a "work around". I've seen drivers hacked to correct problems or enable features, but I've not seen drivers created for non supported hardware.

My printer's power button always blinks and everytime i start printing, it always says that the printer is offline and the active printing documents are all paused whereas when i check it in Devices and printers, it can read the printer and when i troubleshoot it, it states that the printer is off. i don't know what's the problem because it only started when i upgrade my o.s to windows 7 but when i bought that printer i was using windows xp.... it turned out that i encounter this kind of problem when i'm using windows 7 but i also encounter this when i used windows xp but not that serious to the extent that it's not printing at all.
By the way, i've been using this printer for more than 3 years. Thanks and hope you can help to solve this problem. ^^

Checking out HP's support/driver download site for that printer there seems to a few models of that printer. Have you uninstalled the printer driver and software and reinstalled it using, if available, windows 7 software and drivers.

Looking further, it seems all the listed printer models all have windows 7 versions. Do you have the right bit version installed?

Yeah, so I have an HP Deskjet 1050 J410 Series printer. It is not printing complete pages, it is cutting out complete lines on the pages. I just opened the box and installed everything yesterday evening, so its not like it's clogged or anything. I cleaned the cartridges just to be sure, but it still cut out lines on the test page. I am using the ink that came with it and regular printer paper. I have an HP computer as well, running windows 7. I do not know what is wrong, so I was hoping you could help me. I am in college and really need to be able to use this printer.

Thank You.
 

A:HP Deskjet 1050 J410 Series printer not printing every sentence

Sounds like faulty hardware. Perhaps electrical contact between the printer and cartridge gets dropped.
I have a Deskjet 1055 since July 2011 and have never experienced what you see.

I'd return it.

Hi, i'm looking to upgrade my Laptop with a Solid State Drive. Is there a list of supported hard drive configurations or is it possible to use any combination? I'd like to continue using the currently installed disc as a secondary drive (1TB HDD) if possible since my laptop has two hard drive slots. (migrating the OS to the SSD, which would then be Disc 1, and using the currently installed disc as Disc 2). Is this possible? Thanks in advance for your reply!

I have this HP printer with my windows xp system. I was printing a couple pages yesterday and it was ok, then I discovered I made a mistake and needed to print it again, and I didn't do anything different.... but it suddenly turned extremely s-l-o-w. When I clicked print it just sat there. The print dialog box said "printing". It sat so long that I canceled it, eventually when I printed again I discovered that if I wait long enough, it took the paper in, then printed like 1 line and stopped, few minutes later 1 more line, etc I canceled it.

When I try to print a test page, it does the same thing. I went into the toolbox and tried the "clean" function, but that would not work - it said "device busy". I tried to align the printer, but that also said "device is busy". It won't let me do anything!!

I also tried to re-install the drivers, but it says the driver is not on the disk (i have the original disk!) and a generic driver didn't work.

I can't do anything with it. This just suddenly happened. How can I fix this?

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'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?

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.

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?

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.

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).

Thank you so much in advance.

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

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

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!

Can anyone please help. I have recently upgraded pc from a AMD Duron 1.3, to a AMD Sempron 2.2. Had to change m/board, and upgrade memory from SDRAM to DDR. Since doing this, my old HP deskjet 820c xi wont operate properly. It prints for 2 seconds, then tells me there is a comunications error, and have to check cables, etc. Doing this doesnt resolve the problem. I havent changed the operating system, still using 98 2nd edition. Using LPT1 port. Any ideas please?

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?

Hello!
The problem: HP Deskjet 612C not working.
We have two computers, a laptop and an old IBM. (eMachine?) Anyway, the printer was working fine when I unplugged it for my husband to use on the other computer. When he hooked it up it didn't work. We have done this with success before.
Then we took it back to the laptop and it still didn't work -- bottom light solid, top light flashing. We checked the ink but it had just printed out something beautifully a few minutes before. We tried using the color cartridge only and telling it to print blue, as well as printing out of different programs, to no avail.
We got a new printer cord. No change.
Any idea what the problem is?

A:Deskjet printer not working...probably an easy fix?

Doesn't the printer have it's own self-test that you can run?
