Question about HP Photosmart 8250 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My Live Chat with fossildude half an hour ago

I did not find this either expert or helpful. He simply directed me to the HP Support site where I could download the driver I had told him I had already downloaded. His other suggestion, to re-format my hard disk, is a non-starter. Who would go those lengths to install a printer which others have had difficulty with, when the system works perfectly otherwise? I think you should implement your guarantee and refund the $19.99.

Hi again!

I know it is odd, but i am here and willing to help!

here's another option, first download the software/drivers for the printer from the link below.

second sign in as administrator or your account may have those privledges already. during the install if there is a spot make sure that the printer is available to all users.

You know, troubleshooting mostly taking some time, just need to be patient. troubleshooting means, taking and acceptiong all the possible solution until it fixed.

My HP color laserjet 3600 printer continue calibrating, I can't do anything.

Try unplugging the printer. Remove the cartridges. Switch the printer back on and insert the cartridges.

If that doesn't work, remove the cartridges, unplug, put the cartridges back in and plug back in.

One of those should reset. If not, there is Support, including Chat on the HP site. Nice printer!

All my lights are on printer isnt doing anything

Remove all the paper from the printer and carefully reload it.

If no help then unplug the printer and do a computer Restart. After the computer is back up, plug the printer back in and see if that helps.

If not, then go to the web site of your printer manufacturer as most now have free help there and most also have Live Chat with repair experts on their machines.

What is your charge for tech help?

There are four Categories:
1. Free Assistance : Free (response time not applicable) 2. Premium Assistant: $9.99, (immediate response) 3. Premium Live Chat Support; $19.99 (instant response) 4. Premium Phone Support : $29.99. (instant response)
You'll be charge per solution, you will be able to get as many instructions as you want, or until you are satisfied with the solutions provided. Suppose if you are not satisfied with the first expert's solution you can look for another experts until your problem is solved and fixed.

If you have further queries, do let me know.

I have a hp printer officejet pro k8600 I use it to print large documents 11x17. I just got a new lap top with windows 7. I can not print the 11x17 pages. No matter what I do it always prints a 8 1/2 x 11....

Well its a windows problem if you can look at the experts ask for computer_bob he may have a fix for you, if you know how to go to the hp web site and do a live chat for assistance. If they can't fix it then you will have to call the company you bought the lap top from or Microsoft and get support for it there, If it's new it's free. If you know how to look up technical bulletins let me know and I will get the general area for printers for Microsoft windows 7.0 There may be a fix for it there.

I got advice from RichardM69. Although I could not complete all the steps he told me to take, my printer suddently started printing everything that had been in its queue. I hope it will continue to work -- my fingers are crossed.

HP Officejet 5610 All-in-one Installation trouble

I used the live chat feature on HP's website. They guy I talked to reminded me very simply that the disk I was using to try and install the printer software did not support Windows Vista, which i what my computer is operating. He gave me a website and I downloaded and installed the Vista version of the printer software. I works perfect now!

(I'm sorry I can't remember the software, but live chat is great and they should be able to give it to you right away if you ask for it. Or you could always google it)

Xp Driver Needed

OK.. here's how this works:

You would need to go on to HP's Live Chat.. once there you would (hopefully) get them to understand that you were directed to this upgrade offer based on the serial number of your OJ Pro 1170 and that there's no XP support.

They offered: HP OJ Pro L7680 REFURB @ $291.99
PhotoSmart 3210 REFURB @ $164.99
OJ Pro L5780 REFURB @ $110.99

Not bad deals, but it's up to you...

If you need help on how to get to HP live chat, let me know.
