    Hi Riz,

    Yes I did all that was told and it did work for a short while then everything started getting really large print to the point that it wouldn't all fit on the page. Then it wouldn't turn off or work at all. I downloaded all of the drivers that HP told me to and it still doesn't work. I uninstalled and reinstalled and still no help. I am totally confused. Thanks for your help.

    ok..........here are the lights that are on and will NOT shut off. The power button, the 2 buttons for the ink cartridges, There is an 8 lit up for the amount of doc. you want to print, the photo and the black and white lights are lit up. None will shut off unless I unplug it, and nothing will work at all. It is like it is frozen up.

    Hi pear,

    As i understand, the printer is not working at all??? Do you see any lights flashing on the printer front panel? or you see 88 displaying in the led screen next to Copy??

    Thanks

Hi Pear,

I'm sure that this is an Hardware issue, this could be fixed by resetting the printer.

Step 1: [Power Drain]

>>Turn off the printer by disconnecting the power cord from the back and also disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet

>>Then Press and hold the ON button for 30 seconds.

>>Connect the power cord, if it did not work go to step 2.

Step 2: [ NVM Reset]

>>Take out the Ink Cartridges out.

>>While the printer is on, unhook the power cable from the back of the printer.

>>Press and hold CANCEL and PLAIN PAPER button simultaneously, while holding these two button insert the power cable and keep holding for 10-20 seconds.

>>Release the button and check the printer.

>>If the problem exist, service or replace the printer by calling HP.

Thanks
Rizwan

It sure will. The CD that came with the printer should work for Vista but if not you can download the drivers from this link;

My printer scans, copy but won't print from computer?


Hi,
Did you set this printer as the default printer? To do this go to Start - Printer and Faxes, right click on HP printer, select Set As Default Printer. If you are not see your HP Deskject F340 there, that mean your printer driver is not installed. Please install your printer driver.
If you already set it as the default and it is still not printing. Restart your computer to try solve problem.
You said that printer scans so the connection between your computer and printer is fine. Problem is your computer doesn't take the printer as it's printer device yet.
Hope this will help. Thanks for reading

Are you using Vista? I know that the Scan button doesn't work with Vista. There's a way around it though (if Vista is the problem.) Click the Windows Vista icon, click All Programs, and then click Windows Photo Gallery (mine was in a subfolder.) Click File, and then click Import From Camera or Scanner. Click Import, and then click Scan. There is also a similar way to scan with the Paint program.
