I had the same problem, found out that you should not install the disk that came with the printer. If you do it won't scan. The drivers are already in Mac OSX. You have to uninstall whatever you installed...throw the disk away. To scan go to System Preferences, click printer, then scanner button and it works. Hope this helps!

My HP 5850 inkjet has been idle for about four years. I downloaded the drivers for it tonight and attempted a test print and received no response from the unit. Any ideas what could be wrong?

If the printer appears to print but there is no print or images on the paper then most likely the cause is the print head nozzles are blocked with dried ink and inserting new ink cartridges won't fix this problem. You need a new print head.
Print heads are not cheap, you may be better putting your money towards a new printer.

Hi I was given an hp 5850 desktop printer with no startup disc for it.I have windows xp how can I get it to work with my computer without having to pay in order for it to work together I have the cable and...

That is all you need to start printing. You do not need to pay further as you can download the required drivers for free from HP website.

The following link will take you to HP support website where you can download the XP 32 bit driver.

Just download the file and double click to run it. During installation it will ask you to connect the printer, do that and it will complete and let you print.

In addition to above I recommend you bookmark the following link in case you need to search for drivers and support material in future.

HP 5850 Top Cover Open error message

There is a sensor that tells if the cover is open or closed, and a plactic "tongue" protruding on the cover, usually near the hinge, that goes into a recess in the printer.
Two things may have happened - this "tongue" broke off at some point, or the sensor developed a fault.

There are optical sensors, where the "tongue" blocks light going in between an emitter and a receiver, and simpe electrical contact sensors, which open or short when the "tongue" goes up.

There's not much that can be done with an optical sensor, but an electrical one can be inspected and corrected if needed, if you have some manual skills.

have a HP Deskjet F4235. When I try to scan a paper it says \'an error
occurred while communicating with scanning device\'. I didn\'t put in the
ink cartilage for printing. Do you think that is the problem? How can I
solve this problem?
Best Answer: Try updating the driver for your Deskjet. driver updates seem to be needed/ otherwise sounds like a connection prob/ not software really.
