    Same problem that I am having. The computer will only start in Safe Mode until I unplug the USB cord. Then everything works just fine.

The cords are all plugged in and computer and printer is on but it wont scan, the computer cannot make a connection to the printer? there is no damage parts or wires.


Check and see if there is a lock button for the scanner,some printers have this feature so that during transportation or moving you can lock the scanner so it doesnt move to keep it from getting damaged,if that is not the issue then i would uninstall the software,restart the pc and then reload the software and make sure to follow the instructions on installing it to the detail.With usb devices you dont plug the usb cable in until it tells you to during setup,thats important,most printers are like that when installing,so if you installed the software with with the usb cable already plugged in then that can be your problem.Make sure your operating system is compatible with the printer such as winxp,vista,win7.good luck

The color is off when I print with my HP 3210 printer. It prints brighter and darker than the original photo. How do I reset it ?


erforming a soft resetA soft reset, also known as an Electrical reset, can be used to restore the printer to a ready condition when a cartridge, paper, or other printing issues occur. This reset method should be used for the HP Photosmart 100, 130, 145, 230 and 245 printers. Perform a hard reset for all other HP Photosmart printer models.
  1. Disconnect any USB cables attached to the printer and remove any memory cards from drive bay.
  2. Restart the computer.
  3. Unlock the ink cartridge locking clips.
  4. Remove all ink cartridges.
  5. Lock down the ink cartridge locking clips.
  6. Close the main printer door
  7. Turn the printer off with the Power button and wait for the printer to shut down before proceeding to step 8.
  8. Unplug the printer AC adapter from the printer and the wall outlet or surge protector.
    NOTE: The adapter itself has an overload trip that may need resetting, but will not reset if power is flowing to it.
  9. Wait approximately fifteen to forty-five seconds to allow all current to dissipate from printer.
  10. Re-plug only the AC adapter into the wall outlet then into the printer, but do not plug in the USB cable.
  11. Wait for the appropriate missing ink cartridge error to verify that printer can recognize this error.
  12. Re-insert one ink cartridge only, to minimize confusion in case one of the cartridges is defective, and print an internal test page.
  13. If no errors are found, insert the other ink cartridge(s) and ensure that they are functioning by performing internal test pages or calibration pages. If an error occurs due to a defective cartridge, perform the appropriate steps for Resolving Ink Cartridge Rejections.
  14. After returning to the main Windows screen, reconnect the USB cable to the computer then to the printer.
  15. Test for printer functionality.
Performing a hard resetA hard, or mechanical, reset is performed when the printer is in a condition where its normal printing process is interrupted. Examples include a paper jam, carriage stall, or mechanical noise. To perform a mechanical hard reset, follow the steps below.
  1. Disconnect any USB cables attached to the printer and remove any memory cards from drive bay.
  2. Restart the computer.
  3. Remove any paper from the paper tray.
  4. Unlock the ink cartridge locking clips.
  5. Remove all printer ink cartridges.
  6. Lock down the ink cartridge locking clips.
  7. Close the main printer door.
  8. Turn off the printer using the power button and wait for the printer to shut down before proceeding to step 9.
  9. Unplug the power from the back of the printer.
  10. Unplug the power adapter from the wall outlet.
  11. Remove the rear access door.
  12. Locate the clutch inside the printer. c00020494.jpg
    NOTE: The clutch is located in the same place as pictured above in Figure 1, however, you must access it from the left, just above the paper output tray.
  13. Press the clutch firmly towards the back of the printer, while rolling the wheels in the back of the printer upward two full rotations.
  14. Release the clutch and roll the wheels up two more rotations.
  15. Locate and then roll the internal rollers in an upward direction until a clicking sound is heard.
  16. Reinstall and lock the rear access door.
  17. Connect the power adapter to a wall outlet.
  18. Reconnect the power cable to the printer.
  19. Turn the printer on.
  20. Re-insert the paper into the input tray.
  21. Wait for the appropriate missing cartridge error to verify that the printer recognizes this error.
  22. Re-insert one ink cartridge only, to minimize confusion in case one of the cartridges is defective, and print an internal test page.
  23. If no errors are found, insert the other ink cartridge(s) and ensure that they are functioning by performing internal test pages or calibration pages. If an error occurs due to a defective cartridge, perform the appropriate steps for Resolving Ink Cartridge Rejections.
  24. After returning to the main Windows screen, reconnect the USB cable to the computer then to the printer.
  25. Test for printer functionality.

Will print test page, but nothing else,am on windows 7


Before reinstalling, go to ADD/REMOVE programs and completely uninstall the printer and software, and unplug the USB cable from the computer. Then restart the computer.

Make sure printer is turned on, then start installing the software again, and do NOT plug in the USB cable until told to do so! Once you plug it in, do NOTHING, and the system should finish automatically.

Finally, go to Control Panel / Printers and make sure it is the "default" printer.

I can print from my Dell 926 all in one, but it wont scan


Try removing your 926 icon in Printers and Faxes, disconnect the USB cable, restart your computer, reconnect the USB cable, see the 926 and install the driver again. If scan has never worked, you probably need a different driver.

Hope this helps.

(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
