When you say it won't accept the cd, what message is it giving you, without being able to see it here is what I would do myself, or suggest to you, uninstall the device through the control panel or through it's own un install program ," you should be able to see if it has that option" by just looking at the start programs and scrooling down to the printer. Then just re install the program like you are starting out fres, I hope this is of some help to you. Thanks, Gymowner

How do you get the hp2840 printer back online? The printer will not print items sent to the printer.

All the drivers and utilities that are necessarily required for the HP printer to work smoothly under minimal errors shall be installed in the computer before trying to set-up a printer. The users are therefore advised to verify the printer drivers and utilities and reinstall them with their most recent versions by downloading the newest versions from the original HP support website. Doing so and reconnecting the printers will help in solving and preventing offline errors in your System.

Help with my HP laserjet 2840

The HP2840 is a sigle sided scan device. To copy both sides you must copy one side then load the one sided copies in the tray again and repeat the process again. Pay close attention to which side is printed on and scanned on both the original and copies. Also the top to bottom feed order of the auto doc feeder and paper tray. It's easy to get them out of order and copy first page onto last or worse, both sides onto one side of the copy.

The HP2840 isn't capable of scanning both sides and printing both sides at once.

Hope that helps you. If so hit me with a FIXYA. If not hit my user name and further describe the problem to me so I can help you further.
