Hl4040cn will not print test page


Try doing a machine self test to ensure that it is working properly.
Press OK/return to "Machine Info"
Then down arrow once to "Test Print" and OK/Return.
The machine should produce a self test printout. If the machine does not give a print out, try cleaning the paper pick up rollers at the back of the paper tray cavity. Be careful, the machine is heavy.
If a full test print happens - Your printer is working fine and the problem is at the computer end.
It's possible driver installion is faulty or incomplete and you should try re-installing the printer driver. Is it also possible that your printer paper settings are either incorrect or do not match the paper in the printer. Check and match your paper settings in the printer preferences and the paper tray.

Tip

General Printer Troubleshooting


Printer does not have power indicator<br />First, make sure that the printer is on. When a printer is on it should have some light (usually green) indicating it's receiving power and is on.<br />If you do not have any indicator light make sure the printer is connected to a working power outlet by verifying each end of the power cable. Next, press the printer power button.<br />If after following the above steps your printer still cannot get a power status indicator it's likely you're encountering a serious printer issue and we suggest contacting the printer manufacturer for additional steps and instructions on repair or replacement.<br /><br />Cables not connected properly<br />Your printer should have two cables connected to it. The power cable and the data cable, the power cable should have already been verified as being connected if your printer has a power indicator light as mentioned above. Make sure the data cable (parallel cable or USB cable) is also connected from the printer to the computer.<br /><br />Printer error (orange or blinking light)<br />After your printer has completed its initial startup you should have a solid green light. If the light indicator is blinking or orange often this is an indication of a printer error. For example, this could indicate a paper jam, issue with the ink or toner cartridge, or other serious error.<br />Because there is no standard to what a blinking light or orange light means if you're getting either of these we suggest referring to the printer documentation for troubleshooting steps or methods of determining what the status indicator is reporting.<br /><br />No paper or paper jam<br />Without paper your printer will not be able to print. Make sure you have paper in the paper loaded into the printer paper cartridge or tray. Next, verify that no printer paper is jammed or partially fed into the printer. If you have one or more pieces of paper stuck in the printer these will need to be manually removed before the printer will print again.<br /><br />Inkjet printer ink related issues<br />Often when you're encountering an ink related issue you're printer status indicator light (mentioned above) should be flashing. If this is not occurring you may want to skip to the next section. However, if you've recently inserted a new ink cartridge you may want to try the below suggestions.<br /><br /> * Replacing ink cartridges and printer not working.<br /><br />Printer self tests<br />Most printers have a way of printing a test page. This page allows you to determine if the printer is physically working or not. This test is usually accomplished by holding down a series of keys. If you are not sure if your printer has this feature or how to perform it refer to your manual or visit your printer manufacturers web site.<br />In addition to testing the printer using the printer self-test Microsoft Windows users can also perform a software self-test to determine if their computer is able to see the printer and it's able to print. Follow the below steps to perform this test.<br />Microsoft Windows 98, 2000, ME, XP, 2003, and Vista users<br /><br /> 1. Click Start, Settings, and open Control Panel.<br /> 2. Double-click the Printers or Printers and Fax icon.<br /> 3. Right-click on the Printer you wish to test and click Properties. If you do not see your printer listed your printer is not installed.<br /> 4. In the Printers Properties window click the Print Test Page button.<br /> 5. If the printer is able to print a test page, you're printer is installed and setup properly. However, if you're unable to print in other programs it's possible that the program you're attempting to print from has issues.<br /><br />Older versions of Windows with older printers<br />If you are running an older printer and MS-DOS, Windows 3.x, Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT, you can also attempt the below software test.<br /><br />Get to a MS-DOS prompt or Windows command line<br />Get to the root directory - Type: cd\<br />Reroute dir to printer - Type: dir &gt; lpt1<br /><br />The above should take the directory listing and print to the printer. If this does not print, refer to your operating system troubleshooting section. Extra Note: This will not paper feed, therefore press your FF or PP, or manually eject the paper.<br /><br />Printer drivers<br />If your printer does not have any flashing lights and is connected properly it's possible you may be encountering a driver related issue. We suggest visiting our printer driver listing, which links to all major printer manufacturer driver pages and downloading the latest printer drivers for your printer.<br /><br />Parallel (LPT) printers<br />If the printer you're connecting to the computer is an LPT (parallel port) printer we also suggest verifying the below suggestions if your printer is not working.<br />Parallel port in CMOS<br /> 1. Enter the computers CMOS setup.<br /> 2. Once in CMOS verify that your parallel port is enabled or installed.<br /> 3. Next, verify the printer or parallel port mode. This option will often have several different modes. If your parallel port is set to ECP mode, we suggest trying a different mode.<br /><br />Other parallel device<br />If you have a parallel printer with other parallel devices such as a parallel scanner or zip drive, temporarily disconnect these devices to verify they are not causing your issue.

Printing but page comes out blank


To allow for full use of the cartridges, some printers continue to print even after the cartridges are completely out of ink. First, check the ink levels. If the ink level indicators show that a cartridge is low or empty, replace the cartridge.
If not, try to restart the printer. Restarting the printer might clear the issues and allow the printer to function correctly again.Press the power button to turn-off the printer then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer, and the USB cable(if connected). Leave unplug for 30 seconds then reconnect the USB cable and the power cord.
If issue persists, try to reboot your computer. Restarting your computer might resolve the issue. If the printer prints all pages correctly, but it adds blank pages to the printout, check for blank pages in the print preview.
If the preview contains no blank pages, check the printer cables. If the printer connects with a USB cable or an Ethernet cable, a faulty connection might cause the issue.
If the issue persists, check the printer settings on the computer. Issues with the printer settings on the computer might cause the issue. Follow these steps to check the computer: Step one: Check the default paper settings. Make sure that the default paper size matches the width and length of the paper loaded in the tray. If the paper loaded in the tray is different from the paper size setting, the printer might print blank pages. For instance, the issue might occur if legal size paper (215 x 355 mm (8.5 x 14 in)) is in the tray, and the paper size setting is letter (215 x 279 mm (8.5 x 11 in)).Follow these steps to check the default paper settings.Click Start then go to Printers and Faxes .Right-click the icon for your printer (c01532298.gif ), and then click Printing Preferences . Under Printing Preferences window click the Features tab. Compare the settings in the Size drop-down menu with the paper in the tray. If the size of the paper in the tray is not the same as the setting in the Size drop-down menu, change the setting:Click the Size drop-down list, and then select More . The Size is window opens.Select the size of the paper that is in the tray, and then click OK .Click OK in the Printing Preferences window, and then click OK in the Properties window. Step two: Print a test page A test page might help determine if the printer installation caused the problem.Click Start , and then click Control Panel .Right-click the Printers and Faxes folder (c01532297.gif ), and then click Open.Right-click the printer icon (c01532298.gif ).Click Properties .In the General tab, click Print Test Page . The printer prints the Windows XP Printer Test Page.If the Windows XP Printer Test Page prints successfully, you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
If the page is blank, print from an alternate program to determine if the current program is causing the issue.Browse to the location of your saved document, right-click the file, and then click Open With .Select a program other than the program you are currently using to print the document.Open the file in the program, and then check the contents.(Most files open in plain text applications, such as Notepad or WordPad, even if the contents include unusual symbols or text that does not make sense). Try to print the file. If successful, the printer prints exactly what displays in the program window. If the document prints successfully in the alternate program, you do not need to continue troubleshooting. The issue is likely specific to the program you are trying to print from. Consult the program manufacturer for assistance. If the document still prints blank pages in the alternate program, disconnect other devices. Other connected devices, such as scanners, MP3 devices, or other printers might cause conflicts in the communication between the printer and the computer.
If the issue persists, go to this link for the rest of the troubleshooting steps. Go directly to solution nine. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01892627&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3390949&tmp_track_link=ot_search#N46

Hp printer not working


There are many possibilities you not mention the error I m giving you the entire possible thing to check and get problem resolved by one.
Don’t connect the printer usb cable first
1st you install the driver disc which is come along with the printer and when the software prompt you to connect the cable then plug the usb cable and follow the instruction.

Make sure the cartridges are not dry and they are working fine and there is no paper jam inside printer.
first you make sure your printer is working fine just remove the test print form going to printer and faxes option just right click on it and give test print if it is print that means your application have some problem from where you removing print out if test page is not coming then you need to reinstall the drive of printer.
Just remove the cartridge and clean it and reinstall it problem is still there replace the cartridge
Make sure you inserting the paper not deep inside just insert and stop it when you feel any resistance .and try to print something. If it is print then well otherwise you have to show it service center.
In run window type services.msc and the go to print spooler option just stop and restart the service. and also switch off and switch on the printer and try to cancel all the documents form print spooler it will remove all pending jobs. Go to printer and faxes option and choose the printer model which you installed just right click on it you will see the option of use printer online. Also I suggest you to change the usb port and the cable also still if you facing the problem follow these steps, right click on my computer and go to properties then hardware in that click on device manger and check there is any other device is listed if it is there just remove it and click for scan for hardware changes when he prompt for driver reinstall the driver cd.

i hope it will resolve .
Have a nice day and do not forget to rate please...!

Check that is defined as default printer in 'installed printer' in Windows, and that you are not sending documents in printout to another non connected printer present in Windows under 'installed printers'.

Unplug completely computer from power socket and from USB for 10 minutes, to get rid of electrostatic problems on USB. Plug everything back and restart.

Check the USB cable, replace USB cable with a different one to check if it was the cable.

Uninstall printer from 'installed printers' in Windows (delete). Disconnect printer from USB, reinstall printer from printer software CD or downloaded driver. Connect printer to usb only after installing, or when explicitly required by software, this is important

Here is link to driver download, put your windows version in select OS box.
