Why doesn't it turn on?


Check all wires and connections. If u confirm power reaching the innards of unit then there is an issue with the power supply of printer.

HP LaserJet 2840 quit working when we were installing firmware update and power to building went off for a few seconds.


firmware corruption issue you will need to remove that printer from computer screen then reinstall it

then do firmware installation pre upgrade to stabilize(use cd or download of older version of firmware

once that's done then try the update again which won't work if old firmware is corrupted

My printer quit working. When I plug the wire


Connect the Printer Directly to the Wall socket.
Then Perform the steps given below to reset the printer.
This will remove all the network and fax settings.
if the issue still persists, contact HP for replacement.

Please remove the power cable from the back of the printer.
Press and hold # and 6 while reconnecting the power cord to the product, and then release both buttons.

We have to press the keys on the printer. Release the buttons as soon as the power cable gets inserted to the printer.

When I touch the Scan Menu button, and choose scan to computer I get a message that states: No Scan Options I have been scanning for a year. This happened suddenly and I can't figure out why


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Due to any reason when the HP Communications process fails the HP Scan application won’t work. To resolve the issue you’ll need to follow the procedure as given below---

  1. Force Quit HP Communications (if running)
  2. Force Quit HP Scan (if running)
  3. Turn the printer off
  4. Turn the printer on
  5. Select Scan Picture from the HP Director application
  6. When the HP Scan application complains, press Reset
  7. HP Scan will then hang, but HP Communications will restart
  8. Force Quit HP Scan (again)
  9. Select Scan Picture from the HP Director application (again)

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

My power light wont quit blinking Then it pops


May be the printer has gone bad or may be you need some advanced troubleshooting. make sure that the power cord is working fine and try to restart your printer. if it does not work,contact KOdak @ 1800 421 6699, they are currently replacing the printer free of cost,even if your printer is out of warranty.

I need your help my printer quit printing, I was low on ink and it quit printing after I printed a page. I changed cartridges and it still would not print, so I swapped cartridges with a different printer...


So it prints the self test (test page) or not?

If nothing is printing from at all (printer moves likes it is printing when in operation, but no ink hitting paper) there may be a blockage on the jets or the information is not getting to the printer properly if these same cartridges work on another printer.

I would lift lid and carefully check each one and wipe with a thin cloth the remove any clotted ink and dirt.

You have already reinstalled the drivers, but I would get the latest ones you can from www.hp.com

Finally I would cold reset the printer - usually holding the go button pressed in while hitting the power button on and off - will reset rthe calibration and give you a better chance of fixing.

Also if you have the cartridges for the wrong model, they may physically fit in, but the chip on the cart will tell the printer theres a problem and won;t print.

Summary:

- Check cartridges - off the top of my head (please check!) you should be using HP 45 for Black and HP 68 for Colour (if using a different brand, fine but the numbers are thee same)
- Download latest drivers
- Cold reset printer and install again

Good Luck
