Question about HP Deskjet D4260 Printer

1 Answer

When I trouble shoot, it tells methe device is not connected

The printer was working fine for about one year. Two days ago it stoped printing. When I did some trouble shooting it told me device is not connected, check if device is powered and properly connected to computer. The ink and arrow light are flashing so there is power and it is connected to usb port. I changed usb ports no luck. I downloaded new driver, held down the power button for one minute no luck, restarted the computer no luck. HP said it looks like a software problem. I'm out of warranty. Hope you can help.

Thanks,
Mike

Lexmark 7500 wireless printer. was working, yet each day when i go back to print it is always trouble to get connected. Now i cant connect today


I had the same problem for about a week...each "new" day when I attempted to print my first document of the day I received a "printer not connected" problem type message. I had to unplug my printer each day. Then it dawned on me..........uninstall and then "re"install the printer. That was about 6 months ago and I have had NO problems since the "reinstall". TRY THAT ! ! ! !
