Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a wireless HP 6980 series. Doesn't print.

It use to print and I can't seem to figure out why it doesn't print anymore. What should I do? Should I delete the program for this printer and re-install but I am missing the cd. Or did the printer died on me. I am not a computer person and need help.

    I am missing the CD. Is there a way to get the printer to connect to a new router by accessing the printer's settings without the CD?

Is the printer communicating with the computer. If you check the printer in printer set-up, does it show online? Is it greyed out? If so, make sure it is not set to "OffLine" If it is, uncheck it. Are print jobs building up in the print que?

You may also try re-connecting the printer via the USB port to the computer to further test the printer, and rule out remote / communication problems.

Where to find driver for HP Deskjet 6988 printer in Windows 7 ?

You'll find any available drivers for the HP Deskjet 6988 on the support page for the 6980 series printers: .

The Windows 7 driver should be found by Windows Update when you connect the printer with a USB cable. If you are using the printer in a network, you need to manually add a printer (using the wizard) from the Printers and Devices Control Panel. Start this after you have the printer connected to your router or switch. See and expand the section for Wireless or Wired Connection (Windows 7, Vista).

I hope this helps.

I have an HP deskjet 6980. I have had it for over a year but a couple days ago I changed the black ink cartrigde and an orange light stayed on while a message read that the door was open. This printer...

Here is the solution. Sorry the expert above was vague. (Sorry mate but it is hard to believe you are an expert when you can't write properly or spell even close. Good luck in the future if you work hard and improve your skills)

Below is the solution provided by HP it works.

Following below is the thread from a forum that used the above solution and their results. All worked with step 2 from above once it was verified that there is no paper jam.

Also don't waste your time with HP support. They know nothing of their own tech bulletin.
