Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I would like to network our HP color laserjet printer through our Telus wireless router. I connected the printer with a network cable, to the router, but when I tried to install the printer through my laptop's wireless connection it was unable to locate the printer. I printed the laserjet's configuration page but the IP address shows: 0.0.0.0. I do not know where to proceed from here.

    Thank you for the quick reply. I am sorry I forgot to advise that the model is HP4650dn. I have been unable to find the HP MIO Menu. Is it in a different location on the 4650dn?

What model of HP LaserJet do you have?
You will have to go into the configuration menu on the printer itself and set up the network connection. 
I don't know what model you have, but here is a generic answer
Press the Menu Right until you find the HP MIO Menu - Select it. Next press the Item right button until you find the Cfg Network Card = No, - make it say yes by pushing the value right button, then push select to put an asterisk ( * ) next to it. Then press the item right button until you find Cfg TCP/IP = No, - make it say yes by pushing the value right button, then push select to put an asterisk ( * ) next to it. (assuming you are on a basic network) Last press the item right button and insert the following information.
IP Address: Not one already in use - generally 192.168.1.XXX (where XXX is some number between 2 - 253) Subnet Mask: generally 255.255.255.0 Gateway IP Address: Generally 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0 or 192.168.1.254
Once you give it this information, print out the config page and it should be there. If this doesn't work, or you don't know how to find those numbers, I would be glad to help you further.

    Did you go in and configure the card to match your network?

    At this point I would recommend doing a Master Reset. It is also available on the previous support link I gave you. After you do this, follow the instructions on that link word for word to set up the printer again. 


    Restoring an HP Jetdirect to factory defaults


    In some cases, it may be necessary to reset an HP Jetdirect print server to factory defaults, either to clear an old TCP/IP address or to verify that any error messages that appear on the TCP/IP status section of the configuration page have not been resolved. The printer can be reset to factory defaults (or cold-reset) by the following steps:


    1. Turn the printer on.

    2. Watch the control panel. When the memory starts counting, press and hold the green check mark button.

    3. Continue holding the green check mark button until the Ready, Data, and Attention lights flash once, and then stay on steady.Release the check mark button when the Ready, Data, and Attention light are on steady.
      The control panel will read, SELECT LANGUAGE .


    4. Press (Down Arrow) button once. The control panel will read, COLD RESET .

    5. Press the check mark button (Select). The printer will perform a cold reset and then continue its power-on sequence.

My Dell 3115cn printer will not connect to the network (it still works on USB cable), hard to believe it's broken, so can the printer system be reset?


Try turning off the printer and disconnecting power plug from wall. Hold power on button for about a minute. Then replug unit and turn power on - it should then attempt to hook up to your existing network.

If no go, try reinstalling the software that initially came with printer and was used to set up the network

Only thing is I did not find windows 8 drivers for this printer as standard so you may run into trouble with computers running windows 8 as each computer has to have the exact operating system printer driver designed for its exact operating system .

Hp laserjet m1522f error 5 turn off and on


Hi, Error 5 is a Scanner error. When turning the printer on, have the lid up so you can watch the scanner movement. Does it move smoothly? It should go through a warm up and you should be able to watch the scanner movement. If there is a problem with the scanner, there isn't a lot you could do except. The service manual says the scanner assembly should be replaced. If it was my printer, I would try to take a closer look at the scanner assembly and check to see if the scanner unit is bound up somewhere, or maybe a drop of 3 in 1 oil on the scanner rails. Let us know what happens.
thanks

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.

Problem installing drivers for HP 4355 printer in vista 32bit OS


Vista OEM Cd usually doesnt come with drivers.

Printer should have come with its own cd which contains both the software & drivers.

If it didn't come with any
You can try using windows update
or
downloading drivers from hp site

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
