Question about HP Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

My hp deskjet D2500 was given to me in a warranty exchange 3 days ago. I have bought a usb cable for it and everything hooks up well, although when i go to use it a box pops up on the computer saying "install driver software", i was never given an installer cd or anything similar - just the printer - what do i do? Is there something i am able to download, preferably at no extra expense? Thankyou.

Check and make sure your printer is defined in the printer setup, and is selected as the default printer.

Alternately you can download the printer drivers at
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=3571291&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

and re-install the printer. From the computer being off, make sure the printer is on, and USB cable attached, then turn the computer on. The OS should detect the printer on boot, and automatically install the drivers, or you can install them manually from the downloaded drivers referred to above.

You plug it into one of the USB ports. Here is a link to a quick start document.

HOW TO CONNECT HPDESKJET D2545 PTINTER


The D2545 is a basic USB printer. The USB 2.0 (A-B M/M) cable is not included. The installation steps are 1) plug in the power cord and turn on the printer, 2) make sure that it has paper and ink, 3) connect the USB cable to the back of the printer (the square end) and to the computer (rectangular end) with the computer on. The Windows or Apple OS will then install the basic driver software. If this step does not occur, check if your cable is fully seated. Next try a different USB cable and a different USB port. If you are using a USB hub, try a direct connection to the computer's USB port. If the driver software still doesn't work, check that the correct USB driver is installed and working. In Windows, go to the Device Manager. (Press the Windows Key + X in most versions of the OS or go through the Control Panel under Hardware. That involves left clicking the Start button for Windows 7 and lower. For Windows 8.1 and 10, right click on the Start button.) If you see a triangle with an X or an exclamation point, you have a driver problem. Check the computer manufacturer's site for updated drivers.

Go to http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Deskjet-D2500-Printer-series/3374272/model/3571289/drivers if you want the full featured software and drivers.

I hope this helps.

HP Deskjet D1560 is not printing at all although it did print a couple of days ago. The ink is fine. Its just not printing. I have tried to disconnect the printer and wait for some time, have rebooted and...


There are 3 possible causes why your printer won't print.
  1. printer is offline
  2. there are print jobs stuck in the queue
  3. USB cable not detected
Download and install the HP print diagnostic utility to help you identify and fix the problem. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&lc=en&jumpid=ex_r4155/hho/ipg/ccdoc/printer_diag/&lang=en&softwareitem=mp-91788-1
The print diagnostic utility addresses connectivity,spooler,printer online status,device manager,print queue,port,driver,conflicts and default printer. The tool provides a fix button which you can click on to correct the problem.If it shows connectibity problem,you may need to unplug/replug the usb cable or uninstall/reinstall the software.

Will HP 60 ink cartridge work with HP Deskjet 2460? Tnx.


This is all HP recommends for the HP Deskjet 2460, so I wouldn't suggest buying anything else. First of all it might not fit and second, even if it fits, other issues may come with using those. If you can't see the list here it is:
HP 21 Black HP 21 Black Twinpack HP 21/22 Black/Color Combo HP 21/22 Quad Pack HP 22 Tri-color Twinpack HP 22 Tricolor HP 58 Photo

Hi ,
One side of the lead is designed to fit on the computer , the other one on your HP unit . If nothing fits on any side , you need to go back to your retailer where a correct cable will be given to you , in exchange for the previous one .
Best regards .

Hi,

Try making the other printer offline when ever not in use. Their could be reason this is clash of installed files or else try uninstall of D2500 printer drivers & installing with updated drivers that can be downloaded from support.hp.com.
