Re: inkjep printer

Unplug the printer. After uninstalling the software make sure you delete the printer from Printers and Faxes! Try plugging it up again(don't install back the software just as yet), the New device found pop up should come up! if it doesn't then it could be the USB cable / the USB ports on the PC or the USB interface on the card! If it does , put the cd in the drive and select Install Drivers automatically(if its pops up) Also, Try using different USB ports if the new device pop up doesn't pop up! Test the USB ports by using a regular USB device in the same port you are plugging the printer into! A bad USB cable could be the issue but it can also be something else! You'll need to verify that its the cable, what you can do is try it with a cable that you know is fully functional! If you still don't get a response from the printer and everything else works(i.e. usb cable, usb ports) then it could be the USB interface on the printer! and you'll need to take it to a tech! Hope this helps!! regards, babb

My printer will not print

Use the troubleshooting guide that should be in your printer's manual. There are many things that could go wrong including how software is working in your computer. There should be a troubleshooting guide in the manual, HP makes many different kinds and models of printers there is not one solution for all. Also check at the HP Support website for further information or assistance.

Click on the complete driver under Recommended Downloads. Download, execute the file and follow the instructions on the software.NOTE: Use the Vista driver in Windows 7.

I can not get my HP Officejet J4680 Inkjet Printer to work on wireless. Can only use with USB cable. I no longer have my Setup CD. Any suggestions?

First check that your antivirus and firewall software are not blocking the print jobs. Do this by turning off the services for a few minutes. If you can print, check for a setup option of trusted machines. If that doesn't help, make sure you have a strong wireless signal between the computer and the printer with no interference from other appliances (cordless phones, microwaves, etc). Also check your settings to make sure the printer and computer are set for the same wireless network profile and security settings.

For additional information, try the user's manual:

I hope this helps.

(I have generally preferred printing with a wired connection (USB) over using a wireless networks. I've always spent more time on printer problems that were directly linked to the network signal loss problems rather than printer issues.)
