First of all u need to assemble the printer and need to ensure that the printer has a steady green light on Power..
If any light blinks it means there is some problem with the printer..
To connect the printer with your Laptop u need an USB cable which has a rectangular connector at one end wich will be connected to the Laptop's USB Slot and the other end of that cable will have almost square connector wich will be connected to the printer...
Before connecting the printer U need to install the Software on the Laptop and connect the printer when system prompts..
remember the printer should be powered on while connecting to the system..

MY HP DESKJET 6540 is not printing. Just hooked it up to a toshiba laptop with usb cable, laptop sees it, asked for installation cd---done---it added a new printer to control panel and lights are on the...


The first thing that I would look at is to make sure the printer is set as the default printer. This is done in "Printer and Devices" in WIN 7 and Via the Control panel ---> "Printers and Faxes" in Vista and XP.
The default printer will have a little check mark by its icon. If its not there, highlight the newly installed printer and right click with the mouse. Then select "Set as Default Printer".
If this does not work try restarting the machine with the printer attached. After the computer has completely loaded the OS, try again.
If this doesn't help re-post with more info.

2. Push the two latch handles on the rear access door toward each other, and then remove the door.

4. Replace the rear access door.
5. Press the Resume button.

If the Two-Sided Printing Accessory is attached to the printer, follow these steps to clear a paper jam from the Two-Sided Printing Accessory.

Printer is connected but does not print


Hi
Thanks for using FixYa. Please check the following things first---
· The printer cover is closed and the rear access door or optional duplexer is attached.
· The printer is connected to the power source and turned on.
· The cable connections are secure and the cartridges are correctly installed.
· The paper or other media is correctly loaded in the in tray.
Now check the printer cable connection: If the printer cable is attached to a USB hub, a printing conflict might exist. Use one of the following methods to resolve the conflict:
· Attach the printer USB cable directly to your computer.
· When printing, do not use other USB devices that are attached to the hub.
Now verify if the printer is connected to the correct USB port: If the computer is configured to use both the back and front USB ports on the printer, then you might be printing to the wrong port. The computer has two versions of the printer driver: one for the front USB port and one for the back USB port. If you are connected to the back USB port, but select the printer driver that is associated with the front USB port, the printer will not print. In the application that you are printing from, click File and then click Print. The Print dialog box opens. The Print dialog box displays two versions of the printer driver. Select the version that is associated with the port to which you are printing. The issue will be resolved.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
