Why won't my HP F340 all-in-one printer print photos in color, only B&W. The test page does print in color however

Make sure you are selecting color. Mine will do either way. There should be a selection on how you want it.

I think there are 6 ways (at least?) to connect this printer:
(1) Direct to Mac (or PC) via USB Cable (2) Direct to Mac (or PC) via Ethernet Crossover Cable(3) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC also via Ethernet to router/switch(4) Ethernet to router/switch, with Mac/PC via WiFi (802.11 wireless)(5) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC via Ethernet to router/switch(6) WiFi to router, with Mac/PC also via WiFi.
As (1) should be simplest, tried this first. First document would print instantly and completely, next doc would hang in queue with unexpected msg, "Printer is offline." Only way to print 2nd doc was to power cycle (off-on) the printer. This problem occurred whether 2nd doc was sent to printer before or after 1st doc had printed. Tried 2nd USB cable, tried new driver, tried reinstalling printer; same problem. Spoke to both Samsung and Apple support, including both on a conference call; never got this to work and never clarified if problem was in printer hardware/software, driver, or something else. Both companies now showing this issue as unresolved.
Nothwithstanding USB problem, did succeed in modes (4) and (6), although custom wireless config needed since my network does not broadcast SSID and requires an encryption password. Procedure required connecting first via Ethernet, obtaining Configuration Report by holding down orange button for 5 seconds, then using browser to connect to the printer's IP address. Also required different driver for wireless config (as opposed to USB).
Bottom line: What seemed simple - USB direct connect - proved unworkable, but wired and wireless network config works fine.

Red light start button

the problem may be the scanner are you able to scan to pc or email/fax from the machine glass/
when the machine initializes are there any faults displayed ( the printer will continue to function even if the scanner fails) usually the error code 30.01.02 or something like that will be displayed-
the scanner is connected via 1 large connector found to the rear of the machine - does the cable look damaged in any way- is the connection 'good' has the grounding wire worked loose, if after these have been checked there is still no scanner then you may need either a scanner or main PCA/formatter fot the printer.
Belmonte business are able to help with the repair of this unit should it be required and would be subject to the usual costs.

Which cables are required for HP laserjet 1010

2 Cables are required. First to connect the printer to the computer (USB Cable) and second to connect the printer to the power source (Power Cable). These can be bought from any Computer Accessories store. Below is the picture of the USB cable. The normal USB plug (on the left) goes to the USB Post of the PC and the square one at the right should be connected to the printer.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I have epson stylus photo 820 inkjet printer with no cables or electrical wire to plug it in. I do have the software CD. What specifically do I need? Looks like the "parallel" insert would...

This printer uses a "parallel-port" cable to connect from the printer to your computer.

for a picture of the required "data" cable.

This printer also uses an external power-supply (a "brick" and a cord).
Look on eBay to find an inexpensive, compatible, unit.

It might be cheaper to buy a brand-new printer.

Hp7410 Wont turn on and function, power light doesnt come on and the HP Invent Logo keeps cycling on and off

you might want to check to see if the wireless for this machine is connected to main pcb, if so, disconnect, you will have to pull off the back of the machine, requires #10 torq bit, cable is a 4 wire cable, it travles from right of machine to left of machine, the only other cables that travel from right to left, is speaker cable, only 2 wire, and then the doc feed cable, which has 8 to 10 wires on it. if problem still continues, then main pcb will need to be replaced.
