Question about HP DESKJET PRINTER, HP OR COMPATIBLE

1 Answer

I'm having a problem with my all-in-one printer

I use a Toshiba Satellite laptop and an HP deskjet all-in-one printer/scanner (F4100). It worked fine until recently when it started saying that it was unable to communicate with the scanning device (when trying to scan). I checked the cord connecting the laptop and the printer, but it didn't correct the problem. When it isn't saying it can't connect, it just says it cannot locate a printer and now when I try to use the HP Solution Center (the software that came with the printer) it just shuts down and says the program has stopped working. I have tried completely uninstalling and re-installing the program, but it doesn't fix the problem. Any suggestions?

I have heard of this problem several times. Try another USB port (I'll assume it is USB and not parallel).
If that does not work, pay the $35.00 to HP and have them walk you thru their steps to repair. NOTE: HP software/drivers of-late are *extremely* finicky to keep on-line! Esp. with the scanning part. Want a very good, inexpensive, AIO printer that just *works*!?!?!? Buy anything from Canon. They're hardware is exceptional, their software is not intrusive (like HP), and it just...... works!

How do I make my hp deskjet f4100 wireless?


I've been using an HP F4100 printer at our office for almost 2 years which is connected to another computer, using wireless network connection. As far as I can remember, I installed the driver on my laptop prior to adding the printer via the "Add a Printer" wizard. After installation and upon using the wizard which automatically detects the network printer, I was already able to start printing in wireless mode. Hope this works for you too. =)

Printer will not print


Hi,

Disconnect and turn off your printer.

Search by your printer model number and download latest drivers from here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/siteHome?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us

Start installation of drivers and connect your printer ONLY when the setup asks to connect your printer.

If it gives you any warning about "driver signature", just click on "continue anyway". After completing the installation, your printer will work fine.
