Q: HP Deskjet D2400 Series Printer Compatibility

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. ^^

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 D2400 Series Printer Compatibility

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?

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

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.

When I print any document the printer feeds a page through the printing head but does not try to print anything. When trying to print a test page I get the message that the test page failed to print but a page is again fed through the printer. The printer status shows 'deleting' but does freezes in this status. I am running Windows XP Professional and have also been through the help actions but have been unable to solve the problem. Any ideas?

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.

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.

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".

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.

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?

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 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"

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 finally got around to setting up my home network. I have the HP Deskjet 5650 printer directly connected to my VAIO notebook which and the VAIO is also directly connected to the wireless router. I am running Vista Home Premium 64 bit on the the notebook. The printer works fine connected to this computer and in the past has worked fine when connected directly to the following two computers.

The other two computers on the network are running XP SP2.

When I try and add the network printer to either on the XP SP2 computers I get the message:

The server for the "HP Deskjet series (HPA)' printer does not have the correct printer driver installed. If you want to search for the proper driver click OK. Other , cancel and contact Administrator or manufacturer.

I have the original software that came with the 5650 but the correct driver cannot be found on the desk.

Does anyone know how I can get the two satellite computers to recognize the printer or where I can find the driver?

Thanks in advance!

A:Trying to add HP Deskjet 5650 printer to network

Hi, I think your problem is that HP provides drivers for deskjet 5600 series only up to XP OS. If you want to have this printer to work with Vista, your only possibility is to use a very rudimentary driver which is part of Vista. This basic driver works, OK, but you lose a lot of the nice functions/buttons which you find in the XP driver, double side printing etc etc. You say you have used this printer connected directly the XP machines, I guess you have noticed the difference between available functions in the XP driver and Vista driver? Why not connect your printer to one of the XP machines? That will work fine, I have tested it. Printing from Vista will of course only give you the basic functions, but if or when you would like to do a more sophisticated printing, just do that with the XP machine. The 5600 is a very good printer. Hope this will be to some help.

A:hp Deskjet 845c Printer drivers

You should be able to get a driver package from the HP webiste (just looked). If this fails, it is possible that you will not be able to use the printer under Windows 7. This is an ongoing issue for many with "legacy" devices.

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?

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!
