Re: cant get printer to work
Try to clean cartridges contacts in printers with alcogol and fabrics. If you can replace cartridges for new. Possible that mode of the workl of your printer is switched in status remitted or is suspended in driver, check it. Pay attention to brightness of the icon of the printer.

Power on the machine, check front panel 'cartridge led' blinking? replace the cartridges,if 'paper led blinking' indicates paper jam check for paper jam.If printer comes in ready mode check in system drivers its is ready mode?.. if no check parallel cable if its good replace formatter..
in control panel go to printer and faxes. there you will get your printer in printer tab. right click on your printer model, go to property, to printing preference. there in maintenance tab go to head cleaning. run the head cleaning programme once or twice. your problem will solved.
the body of text of the test page is black ink. From what you describe, the print heads are clogged. Most HPs use cartridges that have the head built in, but if not used for an externded period they can dry up and clog.
Try repeated head cleanings (10 or more) see if any change. If none, try new HP ink cartridges
ok try to add a printer in your computer select local port and it should be USB and the USB cable should be plugged in the computer and select the brand to be HP and the model to be 990c click on next till the FINISH appears and after that the printer will print from the computer
HI!. Most printers have a self test facility to do a test page without being connected to any PC. If you can find that out from the HP site, that's a first step. Also, check printers in Windows Control Panel to make sure it is the "Default" printer. Try to send a test page. e.g. right click on the icon for the printer, select 'properties' & look for "Print test page". If all these work then next you would open Windows notepad and just type in a couple of rows of text, then print. If that works, then you try your original application program to prove that it is the cause (somehow). Check all physical connections & re-load the s/w driver. Also, you could take your printer to a friends place that has the same Windows OS and see if it installs OK. Try & test print etc. Hope this helps you to narrow down the problem.
I have a HP Deskjet 1300n printer. I can print my email, pictures and
items off the internet, but cannot print any word documents or notepad
documents. When I print an excel document, I get an incomplete page-the
grid lines will print,and text garbage from a adobe program but not all the text. When I do a test print
page, I get an incomplete text page, but do not know how to solve this.
I have removed and reloaded the printer software-no improvement. There
are no new drivers to be installed.
I have the same Printer and it works great in Windows XP Pro, so maybe you need to check their website for updated printer drivers...? My Printer is the HP Deskjet 1120C Professional Series Printer, that's the full name so I guess its the same printer...can print up to 13x19 inches....I've used the heck out of mine and it just now developed a problem where it won't pull the paper in from the front, but believe it or not I can load one sheet at a time from the back....
