Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

3 Answers

I'm having a really difficult time figuring out how to print DVD/CD labels onto disks using my new HP C5580. The direction I've found are really insufficient, compared to the other two printers I've used for this purpose (they were not HPs). Are there comprehensive instructions somewhere in the help menu, or on-line?

    I've read the instruction manual. On page 61, it simply states that I should use the software provided with the printer to design a label. That's all the manual has to say about that - no instructions that I've found about how to use the software. I've used applications for other brands of printers to design labels, so I'm familiar with the process.
    After poking around the software for a while I found templates for disk designing, but after more searching, and much trial and error I still can't figure out how to use the templates.
    Thanks for any help here.

    Okay. I went to HP's website and found further instructions. The disk printing tray has to be inserted in order for Photosmart Studio to allow the user to choose an image to put on the disk, which then opens the disk label design window. This is not explained in the booklet that comes with the printer, or in the pdf instruction manual. HP could make this a lot easier with more detailed instructions.

Just for my reference, can you tell me the name of the cd label software, and the revision level. The template approach is ok, IF you use one of theirs, and modify it. Still need to know the software in use, and the rev though..

Hello,

1) You have to install the printer software
2) After that, use the program provided by HP to design your labels (When you pull it down your CD or DVD tray of the printer the program pop up automatically)
3) After you finish the edition of your label, insert the cd or DVD onto the tray. (You have to put down the tray in your printer) The printer DVD or CD tray is against your printer upside your paper tray, just pull it down.
4) Put the cd tray inside the printer CD/ DVD tray (the tray has a slot, so introduce the cd tray on it)
5) Just hit print from your printer program once your cd has been set onto the printer cd tray.

that's it.

Let me know if you have further questions

Do you have a CD to install this printer? if you do go into MY COMPUTER where you can erase things and erase the printer and its system then shut computer off and restart then reinstall the printer using your CD to reinstall it. Some times you have to delete things and reinstall them to work.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

Printer won't recognize cartridge


I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
