Q: HP Deskjet 932C Printer Problem - won't print since I changed browsers

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!

I have a HP deskjet 932c which I just reinstalled, because I had to reintalled windows 98SE. Now my printer spits out a sheet of paper on reboot/startup, printer prints very slow and settings are on normal print, and when I print from the web the page starts to print, but if I close the IE window the print job print characters and not the text. I have a cable connection, I thought the job would be in the printer que and I could close the window.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400, 40 gb hd, 128mb, pent 3 processor.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks

A:HP deskjet 932c printer problem

Hi JCross, I have the identical printer . Is it USB? I know I so often have made the mistake when I have reformatted of NOT remembering to unplug my USB printer from my computer. WIndows then puts in its own drivers and your installing the true drivers over top DOES NOT WORK. You have to go to the HP site if this has happened and use their deinstall usb drivers application ... and then reinstall properly according to their directions
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?product=61236&lang=en&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&os=20
This is the page with the drivers AND the usb uninstall utility. You have to use that first according to their directions and then follow the directions exactly for reinstalling. I hope this helps.

I am trying to get my old P3 system up and running again. I have used an HP Deskjet 932C printer with it for years employing the parallel port. My motherboard is only cerified for USB 1.1 but at the time this printer was made I believe 1.1 is what it was cerified for. I can't find my documentation and even HP doesn't say in their online specs.

So, which is faster, the parrallel port or USB 1.1?

Thanks.

Deskjet printers do not care. They cannot even use all the speed of USB 1.1.

Greetings,

I put in a supposedly incompatible color ink cartridge for my deskjet, so it gave me the appropriate message. But when I took that color cartridge out, I couldn't operate with just my black ink cartridge which is the correct model ...I don't want to uninstall anything because I don't have the software...I went to hp. com but I don't want to risk messing up this computer anymore...point me in the right direction please?
 

A:hp deskjet 932c

Not sure I understand completely your question. I recently worked on the same (Deskjet 932c) HP printer as yours. It came to me with a wrong (1823 instead of 78) color cartridge, and the correct(45) black one in it. It also had a paper jam, the only reason the owner said he brought it in. After the paper jam was cleared, the printer did not print. I followed the instruction booklet, and toured the HP site for help. This being an USB type, I installed the latest driver and kept trying. I discovered that cartridge detection is built into the software, in fact, therer is a row of pictures inside the printer that tell you, by having the return carraige stop with an arrow pointing at the appropriate message about whatever problem the printer is having. The one I worked on stopped first at the color cartidge, just said it was bad...so I replaced that. Yes,, this model must have both cartridges inside, and both must be detected as "good"in or it will not print. The printer printed in black, but the printhead was just about gone, could tell by the skipped lines, and no amount of cleaning or priming the cartridges did anything to help. So, I got a new black cartridge, and the printer was happy. Does a fine job when both cartridges are correct ones. There are some models that can handle more than one number cartridge, from what I have seen....the 932c USB does not. Another might perhaps work for a short while, maybe not. Hope to have been of some help.

I have an older hp932c printer. In the middle of a print job I turned it off. It then had a stuck paper that I pulled out. Now the left printer cartridge light continually flashes and the printer makes a noise about every 5 seconds as though it wants to print but does nothing. I tried replacing cartridges and going through HPs suggestions but the light continues to flash. Could I have killed this printer for good? It was working fine until I turned it off and removed the paper. Thanks for any suggestions.

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?

Hello and Help!!!

Everytime I try to cancel a print job on HP desjet 932c printer here is what happens:

1. It takes forever for the document to show up on the que, when it does, it says deleting, but then really doesn't delete.
2. My printer just spews out pages and pages (like 50) of one line symbols.
3. Turning the printer off doesn't help, I have to let it run it's cycle before I can do any more printing.
4. This seems to have started happening since I installed the new HP driver for XP. It may be an HP software problem, but hey try getting help from them.
5. My driver name is HP DeskJet 930c/932c/935c. Version 5.0
6. For about a year I have just not cancelled print jobs, but today I fogot and spent an hour wasting paper and time...argh!

It shows under the print queue with nothing listed in the status column. When you restart the computer you get the message about the document in the print queue -- print it? cancel it? etc. After you print this document you can then print for the rest of the day with no more problems. Any idea what I can do so that I don't have to restart the computer every morning to enable the print function?

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.

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!

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'd remove the cartridges and clean the sliding bar,or whatever the proper name is, with a Q-tip with rubbing alcohol and the cartridges also. This definately will not hurt, just be careful..

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've had this printer for 5 - 6 years and it's worked flawlessly for me - until this past weekend.

My wife had created a birthday card in Microsoft Greetings Workshop Deluxe 2.0 with an image of a bulldog on the front of it. The image was mostly in brown and black.

When the card had finished printing, the colored parts had been replaced with a pink tint.

The tri-color cartridge was at 10% full and the black cartridge was at 50% full, so I assumed that the problem was with the tri-color cartridge being low on ink.

I replaced it with a new tri-color cartridge, then had her print the card again. Lo and behold, it still had a pink tint.

I printed off a couple of websites. The colored parts all came out with a pink tint.

I went into the printer properties and checked all the settings, but they were okay.

What gives?
 

A:Printing Problem With HP DeskJet 952C Printer

I have recently installed a Mustek 600 CP scanner. After installation, my HP DeskJet 682c printer is not functioning fully. I have to press the resume button several times during printing and when it does come out, the graphics are garbled and the text is huge. I think this is because they both share a port. I searched the internet for third-party troubleshooting on the specific scanner and found the scanner uses up a port and does not allow for sharing with a printer or other peripheral. They suggested I return the scanner and buy a new one but this is no longer an option for me. It seems to me that there should be some way to ensure use of the scanner and printer out of the same port. Is there any software that I can download or anything I can do to ensure this? I'm not looking at buying anything else just to solve this problem but I would appreciate your advice on what would help.

I am running Windows 98. Any other details you need I can provide when you ask. Thanks in advice for your help.

A:hp deskjet 682c printer and mustek 600 cp scanner problem

Your scanner almost has to be designed to share a port. Your printer doesn’t have a throughput capability (both in and out for parallel). You must have the printer hooked up through the scanner which must have both in and out – meaning it is designed to share. All parallel scanners are designed to share. It might not do it very well, but that is the nature of sharing devices on the parallel port.

Where did you get the cable you are using for the scanner? Does it say IEEE1284 compliant on it? Your printer needs that two way cable, and since it is going through the scanner it needs one as well.

Mustek isn’t up right now, but make sure you have the latest driver for it from their site. Also get the latest driver for your printer from HP – they might have improved the shared port performance with a driver update.

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 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.

I know that  : The following briefly describes the purpose
of SPL, SHD, and TMP files:

SPL files are the actual spool (print job) files.

TMP files are usually associated with LPR print jobs.

SHD files provide information about which printer the print job was sent to and from
whom the print job came. An SHD file is a "shadow" file that keeps track of what logical printer a (same number) xxxxx.spl file goes to. It also contains the file's order in the queue, the user who sent the file to the printer, and other information.
These files are usually deleted unless the logical printer settings state otherwise.
but these files  never vanished and untils these file were removed manually ,

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.

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!
Thanks, Cat

My HP deskjet 2210 won't print it does scan but it will not print. Cleaned everything ran the tests... Weird thing is that when I put the installation disc in it said it didn't support Windows 7..???

What can I do?? I need to print out something badly...

Also when I try to pull up printers and devices in control panel it takes forever!!

Please help!!
 

A:Solved: HP Deskjet 2210 won't print

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.

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

My HP Deskjet will not print from my desktop. I keep getting errors saying it is off or offline, but it is on and status is "ready" on the printers and devices menu. I can print from my laptopthrough the wireless network so I am a little confused. I have done all the HP trouble shooting senarios, uninstalled/reinstalled stopped and started the spooler etc etc. I really need to be able to print from my desktop for my business.
Please help, I really don't think I should have to be a IT to print at home!

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!!

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 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?

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 little later a message comes up on the monitor saying print failed blah, blah, etc.. I cancel the printing jobs, and the printer spits the blank sheet out.
Of course I'm thinking it was free for a reason, but it came from my wife's boss, he's replacing some printers and he's giving some of the old ones away, so is it busted, or am i missing something here.

A refilled cartridge quit printing yellow so I pulled it and refilled all three colors, still wouldn't print yellow----cleaned, primed etc and no luck. Inserted a new cartridge (several months out of date) and still no yellow. Tried all the cleaning tips on HP's site to no effect.

Anyone have an idea??

Thanks, Jim
 

A:HP Deskjet 722C - Yellow won't print

It is likely that the Out if date and refilled cartridges are the problem if you have tried all cleanignroutines........try a new cartridge.

My printer is a HP Deskjet F4400 series, bought it March of 2010, and lately it was making noises, but now it doesn't print anymore. When I was trying to print something, the paper starts then stops, and nothing else (the machinery) happens, then it becomes a pain to turn it off. Is my printer going, or could it be something else?
