Question about HP Printers & Copiers

9 Answers

I have a HP 4850 scanner, when I had a cannon printer, when we needed something printed, we hit the print button on the scanner and it would print from the scanner, with out any other involvement from us. since then my cannon printer went out and I decided to go and buy an HP printer 6940 just the other day. I loaded the printer and it is fine printing threw the computer but we want it to play well together with the printer, like when it would print to the cannon printer by just hitting the print button like before. The reason I bought the HP printer is I though it would match and work like the cannon or maybe even better. God Bless Richard cubcadet155@bellsouth.net

    There are 4 buttons on the 4850 HP scanner they are Copy, Photo, print, e-mail. before we would hit the print button and with nothing else done it would send to printer and print, since the new HP printer it does not work that way, it gives me a message to install a printer, we have installed it as we can print threw the computer. we want to print like before by just hitting the print button on the scanner and it would send and print.

Open HP Photo and Imaging Director Software and configure your devices.

The HP 4850 scanner is still configured to work with the cannon printer, you have to tell the computer where the scanner would print.

With the Hp printer there is no button to simply print. You can Scan and copy from the printer panel but printing has to be from the computer. The reason is the printer will not know what document to print as the document is in the computer.

Well sir, the hp printer will not print using the button on the printer. That functionality is not present. You can only scan or copy using the button on the printer. For printing , you will have to use the computer.

Thanks

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand I am tempted to think that it is still possible since the HP 4850 has this feature of a one-touch button that sends a scan directly to your default printer. Might it be that the 4850 is still looking for the Canon and is unaware that it is gone and has been replaced by an HP 6940. Pls verify that in your Printers & Faxes, the new HP 6940 is checked and is set as the Default Printer. It may be to your advantage as well to delete the Canon presence/drivers.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Pls try checking around the 4850's setup/files, there would be an entry such as an *.ini file pointing to which printer would be the default.

How do I clear the memory


I would think that the document is not on the printer, it's in the printer spool. Open the printer properties and clear the queue.

Still now it doesnt work print out more or less white dark


I jut solved the problem on a same code error, I have a Cannon MG2120. I simply held the "reset" button and the machine reset. You may have had an initial printer test on set up. The ink shouldn't matter as its a combo scanner/printer/copy. You should be able to use the scanner. Remember to hit the "scan" button only or you may queue a new printing project.

So, solution is:

1. Press and Hold: "Stop/Reset" Button
2. Press once: "SCAN" button

This is the one way that you are printing y using the print button on printer, however if you would install the printer driver on your system then you can print all the documents by using the printer icons on your system, if you have driver disk of this printer please install the printer driver fist and then try to print, Please let me know it works or not so i can send you more details about that

Cannon multipass F60 scanner/printer striped color printing


What you have is a dried up color cartridge. You can try to use the <clean print heads> in the diagnostic tools section of you priner software. (usually, just try to print something & the window will appear) Sometimes you have to clean heads, then print test page like 2 or 3 times before it clears up. If that doesn't correct it, don't worry. Have your color cartridge filled (staples, office depot, & other stores do it cheap) - or - replace it with a new cartridge. You may have to run the clean print heads program after installing a new cartridge, but this will definitely fix your problem.

The printer is printing an alignment page. Take that alignment page and put it on the scanner part of the printer and then press the scan button, that will align the print heads
