    For HP Officejet 6600 / 6700 printer models which suffer a calibration error, more than likely either the PRINTHEAD has connectivity issues (i.e. remove, clean all contact points, and reinstall), compatible/clone ink cartridge chips are causing the issue, the PRINTHEAD is approaching end of life, or not all ink nozzles are firing and therefore the printer is unable to calibration. Perform the following diagnostic checks to help make a determination:

    Tap 41 PRINTHEAD Health Diagnostics (NOTE: applies to touchscreen 6600/6700/8600/8700 printer models only):

      1.Press 'Return' button (lower left side) four (4) times until 'Support' menu is displayed.
      2.At 'Support' Menu, using the arrow key, navigate to the 'Service Menu', press Ok.
      3.Use arrow keys to advance to the 'Special Reports' Menu. Select OK.
      4.Use arrow keys to advance to the 'print mech button tap' menu. Select Ok.
      5.'code = 0' will be displayed. Use arrows keys to change value to '41' (i.e. press and hold right arrow key).
      6.When 'Code = 41', select 'OK'. The diagnostic test pattern will print.
      7.Check the 4th line at the top of the printed report; an electrically good/stable PRINTHEAD will state "Pen Status: Pen OK".........if any other message is displayed then the PRINTHEAD may have failed and may need to be replaced. Re-seat PRINTHEAD and/or clean rear electrical contacts and repeat 'Tap 41' test to verify connectivity is not the issue.

      Nozzle test (use to determine if all ink cartridge nozzles/printhead is firing all colors properly)
      Press return arrow 4 times
      2.Press support menu
      3.Press right arrow 5 times to print diagnostic menu and press ok
      4.At nozzle test press ok


      Self test/printer status (use to print internal printer settings)
      Press return arrow 4 times
      2.Press support menu
      3.Press right hand arrow 7 times to reports menu and press ok
      4.At self test report press ok


      Extended self test (use to evaluate color performance and obtain total page count)
      Press return arrow 4 times
      2.Press support menu
      3.Press right hand arrow 7 times to reports menu and press ok
      4.Press right hand arrow 1 time to extended self-test and press ok


      Print Quality Diagnostic Page (use to determine if printing alignment is correct)
      Press return arrow 4 times
      2.Press support menu
      3.Press right hand arrow 7 times to reports menu and press ok
      4.Press right hand arrow 2 times to Print Quality diagnostic report and press ok
      Print head recovery (runs 'intensive' printhead service cleaning routines, i.e. for a clogged printhead)
        1.Press home key twice
        2.Then return key
        3.Then home key twice
        4.Then return key
        5.Then home key twice...............this will gain access to the Engineering Menu
        6.Press the 'service menu'
        7.Press right arrow 4 times to 'service test' and press ok
        8.Press right arrow:
        a.16 times to 'print head rec level 1' (basic recovery)
        b.17 times to 'print head rec level 2' (medium recovery)
        c.18 times to 'print head rec level 3' (thorough recovery)....suggested for severe streaking
        9.Press 'ok' to activate either of the 3 selections above.


        Semi full reset (can be used to help address intermittent or incorrect printer behavior issues)
          1.Press return arrow 4 times
          2.Press support menu
          3.Press right hand arrow 2 times to Resets menu and press ok
          4.Press right hand arrow 2 times to semi full reset and press ok (Note: this will return printer to factory default condition; regional setup will be required following this action)

My 3330 says scanner bulb is warming up then it gives me a error 79 message no ,matter how many times i restart it


The error 79 on that machine means that the scanner assembly has failed to align/calibrate. Could be due to a bad calibration strip on the scanner glass, have you ever sprayed glass cleaner directly onto the scanner glass? If so this can stain the calibration strip and render the scanner useless. It is probably best to have the machine serviced by HP.

Error 0F0100030C099F on hp5000


found this maybe can help i dont know
I tried the fix of :
This may be an error finding the mark encoder. The mark encoder is the
white plastic piece on the left end of the roller. Replace the lense cover
first. If the error remains, turn the printer off, and place a piece if black
tape over the hole at the left end of the drive roller, this will block the
mark encoder from the line sensor and should trigger a 010092 error during
power on. When the 010092 error comes up,
press enter to continue past the error. After the printer comes ready, remove
the tape, and run a scan axis calibration.
To run the Scan Axis Calibration:
1. Enter "Device Setup".
2. Enter "Utilities".
3. Press the UP arrow and ENTER keys simultaniously,
4. Select "Yes".
5. Enter "Service Calibrations".
6. Run the "Scan Axis Calibration".

Problem copying a movie onto a lightscribe hp dvd +r media disc, using my hp dvd940e dvd writer


The semaphore timeout period has expired refers to the fact that the driver is no longer communicating with the device and failed. Each time a CD Burner is setup for a CD Burning session the burner hardware will perform a 15 step power test to determine the OPC for a Blank Media Disc, OPC meaning Optimum Power Calibration. This test also takes place during the CD Burning process so the CD Burner can determine the best burn speed and method for the disc; this test is called 'Running Optimum Power Calibration'. Although the test is performed by the hardware of the CD Burner, the device initializes the CD Burning Software for the test to take place. This is one reason why your software may report the "Power Calibration Error" or ?Calibration Error Full?. With Power Calibration errors they can be caused by different factors and sometimes difficult to locate, especially if the errors are at random. Below are the known factors that will cause the Power Calibration Errors and how to check each factor, it is important that each point is considered if wanting to get to the bottom of the error. Power Calibration Errors can occur when OPC or ROPC tests for the media disc so the condition of the disc, brand of disc and even the firmware for the CD Burner can be the cause for the errors occurring. A device such as a CD Burners can have different problems if there is a power consumption issue with the system and the Power Calibration Error is just one of those problems. If using either an internal or external CD Burner make sure to disconnect all other devices, except the hard drive and Burner, before attempting to burn a disc. Double check all cables for any faults and if possible test with a 2nd Data Cable. It is also advisable to disconnect the power connection for the CD Burner and test with a spare connector. If you have no trouble with other discs, use them and put to one side the lightscribe, other than that try the burner in another pc or with other burning software, as you can see it's quite ridiculous what problems burners can create.
