My HP Deskjet 5740 is connected bu it won't print

when you connect your printer make sure the cables are in working order and check that they are connected correctly use your manual that came with the Printer to make sure you are starting it correctly(turning it on correctly) then run the CD-Rom and follow the prompts to install, making sure you download the latest drivers if the ones on the CD that came with ur Printer is no good.
you may have to un install first and reinstall it make sure you take the time it takes to install it correctly first time and no short cuts or this could be your problem. (mostly with printers it is driver problems that prevents them from working correctly.

My hp deskjet 5740 shows up with asian language not english in the set up boxes and it is impossible to work out fonts, paper feed, portrait/landscape etc, can you offer a fix

Just unstalled the driver by deleting the printer from the printer and fax in control panel and unplug your printer from the system.

Go to this link below and download the printer driver by selecting your operating System

Double click the installer and in the language column select english (if by default it can be any asian language). Connect your printer only after finishing installation.If the installtion wizard search for the printer hardware,select you will connect it later.

This will solve your problem.
