SOURCE: Printer will not print

Hi Check that the cable is fully into the printer also make sure that there are not any lights on the printer that are on. Within the printer icon right hand click on it and select properties. Once in there select the ports tab at the top of the window and check that the port that is selected is the correct one i.e. LPT1 or USB or which ever the printer is connected to.

Once you have check these try clearing the print que and print a test page from the properties window. If the printer prints ok then there is nothing wrong with the printer and make sure that within the program that you are using the correct printer if not change to the correct one by Ctrl: P and then at the top of the window it should state what printer is to be used.

Hope this works for you
Thanks J

SOURCE: HP3600 USB printer works but won't print on my HP7058 Laptop

Try removing all ports from your laptop, then reboot, and then create just one USB port. Also, go to your hardware devices and make sure your usb ports don't have any question marks or yellow warning symbols. Be sure first that the drivers for your USB ports are installed and working first. This sounds either a faulty USB cord, which does happen, or USB drivers issues in your laptop. The printer is probably not the problem here.

Hp deskjet 3650 printer works very slowly with win 7


tion one: Check the power supply Follow these steps to check the power supply to make sure that it is functioning correctly.
  1. Turn the product so that you can access the rear side.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Figure 1: Unplug the power cord from the back of the product
  3. Remove any devices between the product and the power outlet, such as surge suppressors or power strips.
  4. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet.
  5. Print and time a self-test again.
  • If the test page prints in 30 seconds or less , the problem relates to the power supply. Replace devices between the product and the power outlet, or leave the product connected directly to the wall outlet.
  • If the test page takes significantly longer than 30 seconds to print, continue to the next solution in this document.
Solution two: Check the USB connection
  1. Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the HP product. Figure 2: Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the HP product
  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the computer.
  3. Wait five seconds.
  4. Reconnect the USB cable to the back of the product and the computer, according to the following guidelines: The icon on the USB cable (c01424575.gif ) faces up when the cable connects to the product correctly. Connect the small end of the USB cable to the back of the product Connect the other end of the USB cable to the computer
  5. After you make sure that the USB cable connects correctly and securely, review the following guidelines to check other potential USB-related problems:
    • USB ports on the keyboard. USB ports on the keyboard and in the front of some computers might not be powerful enough to support the product. If the USB cable connects to the USB port on the keyboard, try connecting it to another available USB port on the computer.
    • USB cable length. HP supports USB cables less than 5 m (16 feet, 5 inches) long. However, a USB cable that is 5 m (16 feet 5 inches) long must be of high-quality. Otherwise, HP recommends using a USB cable that is less than 2 m (6 feet, 6 inches). Do not use patch cables to increase the length of an existing cable. Use a powered USB hub if you need more length.
    • Alternate USB ports. Connect the USB cable to another port on the computer to make sure that the USB port on the computer is not the problem.
    • Defective USB cable. Replace the USB cable to make sure that the existing cable is not defective.
    • Conflicting USB ports. Disconnect any other USB printers, USB scanners, USB cameras, and any other USB connected peripherals. Start reconnecting these devices one at a time to determine if one of the devices is using too much power. Consider purchasing and installing a powered USB hub if necessary. NOTE: A USB-powered hub is a device that increases the number of available USB ports on a computer and facilitates communication between the USB devices and the computer. A powered USB hub can resolve communication failures between some, but not all, USB chipsets and HP products.
  6. After checking the USB connection, print and time a self-test page again.
  • If the test page prints in 30 seconds or less , the problem relates to the USB connection. Replace the USB cable or modify the connection to meet the preceding criteria.
  • If the test page takes significantly longer than 30 seconds to print, continue to the next solution in this document.
Solution three: Check cartridge compatibility Incompatible cartridges can cause the slow printing problem. To check the cartridge compatibility for your product, go to HP SureSupply . To identify your cartridge in a language other than English, click the language link near the globe icon (c01906983.gif ) in the upper right corner of your browser. Examine the cartridges in your HP product, and then follow these steps to check which cartridges are compatible with your product. The number on the cartridge label must match the numbers listed on HP SureSupply.
  • If the cartridges are not compatible with your HP product , replace the cartridges. You can order replacement cartridges directly from HP SureSupply.
  • If the cartridges are compatible with your HP product , continue to the next solution in this document.
Solution four: Perform a reset A reset drains the power from the product and returns it to the same settings after restarting.
  1. Press the Power button (c01602202.gif ) to turn off the product.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Figure 3:
  3. Disconnect the data cable (USB or Ethernet, depending on how your product is set up) from the back of the product. USB cable Ethernet cable
  4. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Figure 4: Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet
  5. Wait about 30 seconds.
  6. Reconnect the power cord to the product and wall outlet, and then turn on the product.
  7. Print and time a self-test again.
  • If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the issue persists , continue to the next solution.
