To be honest, if you just bought it, it should be covered by a warranty. (Did you register the printer with HP?) HP has a lot of information and troubleshooting steps on their web site. Have you tried there? You can probably get technical help from them through phone service as well.

I have a Dell Dim 2400 and no connection with HP Deskjet 3070A.


Charles, has this combination worked previously, have you been able to print from your Dell Dimension 2400 to your HP Deskjet 3070A successfully?

If the answer to the above is Yes, then if you believe that the printer is still working correctly and you can test this with a different computer able to print to it, you should consider uninstalling and re-installing the HP software and device drivers for this printer.

If you have not printed to this printer successfully previously, have you tested the printer with a different computer and proven it is still working fine?

If the printer works fine to a different computer then providing you are using the same USB cable to connect to your Dell 2400, the problem needs to be narrowed down further.

Check that you can plus other USB devices into the port on the Dell used for the HP printer - if these work, then your USB port is good - if not, try another port if you have one.

If your USB hardware is good, then again you are left with the need to uninstall and re-install the HP software and device drivers - it may be worth trying to download the latest version of such software if available. HP tend to update their All-in-One software on a regular basis.

You could try the link below to HP website and choose the F4210 driver download. The F4200 series are virtually identical.

I have a F4240 HP all in one, I have trouble with


You have to fully uninstall the installed drivers for your printer.

First pull out the USB Printer Cable from the computer. Then uninstall the software / driver.

After fully uninstalling try reinstall the HP software with USB cable still not plugged in. Plug the USB cable only when you are asked to do so while installing the software.

After the successful installation your problem will be solved.

CD LOST OF HP DESKJET 3845


HP.com/Support>HP Deskjet 3845 Color Inkjet Printer>Drivers & Software Downloads>Pick your Operating System,
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=372330&
You didn't state what Operating System you are using. I'm going to pick Vista to use as an example,

There is no full feature software and driver package for Vista. However there is a basic driver, and a workaround. Here, http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01655752&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=372330&os=2093&lang=en

If you have Windows XP, here is the driver, and the HP Essential software,
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=372330
First download the driver, (IN DOING all of this, DO NOT have the printer plugged into the computer, and have the printer turned off)
Click on -> HP Deskjet Full Feature software/driver: USB cable
(Size is 14.41MB)
It will go to your desktop screen. Double-click on it. If a window comes up that states Extraction Wizard, go up to the top right, and click on -> Extract All Files. Follow the instructions. Look for a file that has -> Setup, or a file that ends in -> .exe

It may ask you if you want to restart your computer at this time.
NO! Not yet!
Now download this for the same page as above,
HP Photosmart Essential Software for Photo Editing, Printing, and Sharing (Size is 6.19MB)
Follow the same instructions as I gave above.

Would appreciate a follow up to see if this 'cured' your problem.
Have a nice day.

Any help appreciated


  • make sure the printer is compatible with the operating system on you pc,
  • check that when the printer is on, a light is lite,if not check power point,power pack (if used)
  • check all leads are firmly connected.
  • check in the printer folder, to see if it is installed on the pc.
  • if not re install it.
  • if you have not used it for a long time, the ink can dry up in the cartridge, but may still go through the motions of printing.
  • however some printers stop working when out of ink.
good luck with that
