Mfc7340 will not print--it was working just fine and then it errors out. Uninstalled and reinstalled and it shows ready but errors out

Hello ,

First, please make sure there is no error message displayed on the LCD screen of the printer

Now we will check the status of your printer in the printers menu in the control panel.
The printer’s status should be set to “ready”
If the printer is “paused” simply clear the print queue, right click on the printer and select “resume printing”.

If the printer says “offline”, follow these steps.
  1. Clear the printer queue
  2. Shut down the computer
  3. Unplug the USB cable from your computer and your printer
  4. Unplug the power cable from the printer and wait 15 seconds
  5. Plug the USB cable back into the printer and the computer.
  6. Plug the printer’s power cable back in.
  7. Turn your computer back on.

Your printer status should be back to ready now and you are able to print.

Thank you,

My Hp Deskjet F4200 series printer will not scan anything to my computer, but it will copy just fine. How can I get it to scan? I have already uninstalled the printer driver & reinstalled it. It says...

Check to see that your Scanner drivers have been installed. Click on Start, then Printers and Faxes and see if a Scanner is listed. If not, you need to install the drivers.

Also, when you uninstall the printer drivers, you first need to disconnect the printer from the computer, and unplug the printer from the power source. Leave the printer unplugged for at least 15 minutes to clear the printer's cache memory.

Next, go to Add/Remove Programs in your Control Panel and uninstall the printer software. Then, turn off your computer.

Next, reboot your computer. Place the Deskjet cd in the drive and follow instructions for reinstalling the printer software and drivers.

HP Officejet 6310 scans once but then says scanner failure


that error message is nothing to do with the software part, it actaully hardware issue try the following, 

1) unplug the machine and connect it to wall outlet directly,
2) unplug the power cord from the printer and press and hold ON for 1 min and release the ON button and plug it back..
3) Disconnect the power cord from the product.Press and hold # and 6 while reconnecting the power cord to the product, and then release both buttons and if printer turns off, turn it back ON and wait until it cmopletes its instialization and if still persists, it a hardware failure...............

Hi My Mexmark X73 printer-scanner does not print nor it scans.

Try hard reset .

Unplug the power cord for 30 minutes . This resets your printer . Plug back the power cord to printer .

This will clear most of the problems .

If this does not work uninstall the driver file from the printer and reinstall the driver file .

Thanks for using Fixya

My 4 in 1 wont scan but does print

Before we give up on the scanning/copying ability of your machine. Try unplugging the machine from the wall and from the computer for at least a couple minutes. If that doesn't work, You may also check for a factory reset switch or reset mode you can choose. Last but not least. Uninstall the printer again, unplug it from the wall and computer. Make sure you restart the machine and even shut it down before trying to reinstall the drivers. The above site has a patch for the scanner. Not sure if its what may be ailing yours. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
