Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have two HP deskjet printers, models 5550 and 5700. I use the 5700 on my laptop at my cottage and the 5550 at my home. Recently I printed a number of pages (not complete files) from Word Perfect on the 5700 at my cottage. Now that I am at my home and using my 5550 I cannot print any of those Word Perfect files even when I switch to the 5550 and designate it as the default printer and it is shown as the printer selected. The print job is switched to the 5700 and since this is not connected the page cannot be printed. I have the driver CDs for both printers. How can I restore the previous situation where I as able to switch between printers as needed and designate the 5550 as the printer to be used?

Printer stuck on pending


It sounds like the message to me that the printer and the pc are not communicating very well and when you went to print your 54 page document your printer could not handle such a big file there is a communication error between them both. have you updated your printer drivers ? have you run a virus scan on the document ? you might have a virus in one of the drivers for your printer ! what I would do is uninstall your printer from your pc go to add & remove programs remove your printer and then go to the HP website and fully download your software again for your printer when you go on to the HP website type in your printer model number and ask for a set up disk for your printer so just type in instalation disk for
HP Deskjet F390 it will cost you nothing this website will make sure you get everything you need to fully install your drivers back into your pc and any updates that you are missing hope that helps

Constant error messages from hp deskjet2400


From the forum this is in, I will assume that you are running Win2k3EE on your laptop. Your issue might be a compatability issue with the print drivers. HP is notorious for making bad print drivers (ever since their aquisition of Compaq...before that, they did rock-solid work IMHO). For this printer, you may want to 1) uninstall the printer and use the Windows printer install wizard, as opposed to the HP installer, or 2) see if HP does offer a Server 2003 specific driver. HP commonly includes a bunch of "junk" in their Deskjet print drivers because those printers are targeted to individual home users who will use XP or Vista. Hope this helps...I know it isn't much to go on...good luck!

Wireless Dell laptop can't 'find' HPDeskjet 5150 Printer


this printer is (as per HP specs) only connected via USB or Wlan Print server.
Check connection using USB cable and be sure Printer driver are correctly working.
Check on Router your Print server IP address (Lock it out of DHCP)
Put both PRT and PC on same home network (normally HOME or MSWORK)
Put Printer server IP address into your printer properties/port tab/ IP.
OR check if you see your printer server in your Windows network/home network

Has stopped printing but when i check i have a stack of stuff waiting to print why


I also recently had problems with my HP printer. I called the tollfree HP number, and was advised by the technician to try a "cold restart"'. This simply means to unplug the power cord and replug it , after a few seconds. It solved my printer's problems and I hope it works for you , too.

Printer won´t work


The printers listed in here are older models. If you have purchased a printer in the last 2 years, your printer most likely will work with a print server. If your printer is not mentioned in this FAQ, it may work. If you are using a multi-function printer, only the printing function will work through the print server. Several kinds of printers are not supported on a network. These include host-based (sometimes referred to as GDI printers), and PPA printers. There are also printers designed for home use that are not intended for support on a traditional network, but that may work in a Home PNA network. In addition, several HP Officejets are not designed for or supported on networks. Host-based (sometimes referred to as GDI printers). A printer that relies on the computer´s processor to rasterize the print job. Most host-based printers use the GDI interface built into Windows (hence the "GDI printer" term), so there is no need to convert the data to PostScript, PCL, or other printer language. Some HP Deskjet printers are PPA (Printing Performance Architecture) printers. With this new printing system, the printer handles only basic printer functions while the printer software on the computer handles the formatting. All formatting, such as color matching and correction, half-toning, edge enhancement, tone correction, and ink management, are handled by the software driver. Furthermore, some of the printers listed below may work on a network, but only when they are connected to the parallel port of a Windows computer that has the correct printer driver installed and printer sharing properly configured. Contact the support group for you specific printer for details. Hewlett-Packard PPA or host-based printers: HP Deskjet 710C printer HP Deskjet 712C printer HP Deskjet 720C printer HP Deskjet 722C printer HP Deskjet 820Cxi or 820Cse printer HP Deskjet 825C HP Deskjet 1000C printer HP Deskjet 1000Cxi printer HP Deskjet 1000Cse printer HP Original Photosmart photo printer (C3804A) HP LaserJet 3100 product HP LaserJet 1000 product family The following printers are not supported on traditional networks: HP Deskjet 900 series 930C 932C 935C 940C 950C 952C 959C HP Deskjet 800 series 810C 812C 830C 832C 840C 842C 880C 882C NOTE: HP does not recommend the use of the HP Deskjet, HP Deskjet Plus, HP Deskjet 300, 400, 500, and 600 series printers, or the HP Deskjet 850C series printers for shared, high volume printing. These printers have a low duty cycle and are not designed for high volume network printing. The models listed below are not designed or supported on networks.
