Question about HP Photosmart 3310 Printer

Hp Photosmart 3310 all-in-one Printer

My printer is out of warranty and HP is not letting me use it because it is out of warranty. I purchased it for my home computer from Best Buy and I took it back and told them that HP was not letting me use it and verified with a phone call to HP and gave it back after finding it worked but HP would not allow it. Best Buy had never heard of this and no one else has either. HP wants to charge me 50 or so dollars a month to use my own personal printer. What can be done ??? When I purchased this printer nothing said that after the warranty ran out I would be charged a monthly fee. The purchase of such a printer should be at the attention of all willing to purchase it.

    I have contacted HP and they told me if I called them again they would charge me for the call on my printer. A man from corpoate Best Buy confirmed this for me. They will not say it in so many words but the answer he got from them was the same. I must buy my service . They put anything I tried to print in a printer que that was set up by HP administrator. I bought an epson because they will not let me use it so it is not my computer and Best Buy confirmed the printer was in good working condition.

Have you tried testing the printer on a other computer?

If the printer is still under warranty then the best would be to phone HP because it could be a formatter board issue.

You can either go to the retailer, from whom you purchased the Printer OR go to web site of HP printers support section and find out retailers near your home and ask them to supply you. Lastly you can order on line from, e-bay or best buy or circuit city or any of the other computer stores in your area.

The problem is,I keep purchasing HP junk. Over the years I have purchased nothing but HP and about every 2 or 3 years I have to replace the printer. I have a HP All-In-One 3300 Photosmart printer that is...

Unfortunately it is a problem in the present times as many products are designed ONLY for a period of time. Even if the pritner was working without any issues, the cost of replacement of new cartridges or the printer head would have been so expensive that you could buy a new model at a cheaper price. So the logic of the companies seems to be that we make use of the product , dump and go for the new model... That seems to be the economic theory for the BOOM.
Now in your case it seems that the mother board has issues and the above theory applies. Spending on the board may be costly again with no WARRANTY for the cost spend as another items can fail. Best option is chose a modest printer with long warranty and with just the basic features required for you... avoid more sofistication and unnecessary features but good printing quality.

Printer will not print black. put new ink ,twice and ran the clean head function a few times ,still will not print black ,colors are fine

Brothers and Canons can sure be cantankerous. My guess is your printer is due for a complete servicing at the nearest local center qualified and guaranteed. Please just take it there, with the caveat that it must be accompanied by a FLAT RATE quote. And get it back in order.

Otherwise, I do not recommend purchasing a Canon or Brother printer ever again. Always buy HP, and the moment you get home, buy the highest extended warranty online possible for as long as possible, or finally,

learn to be a printer technician by reading hours of blogs, threads, and all otherwise concerned only with your model of printer.

I'll let you be the judge of the cross-referencing of costs. Those may not incluse recordkeeping you're fond of.

Kind Regards,

Vista will not print to HP Laserjet 5p

I purchased a Dynex USB to Parallel Converter Cable from Best Buy and tried to connect but had no success. I then sent an email to Dynex customer service and received a reply in about 24 hours. The rep provided spot on instructions which I was able to follow to a tee. My 14 year old HP Laserjet 5P is now ready to run until it blows up.

I spent hours searching web forums and only received overcomplicated replies by people who think they are techies, none of which worked. I am 63 years old and not a techie, so if I can do it, anyone can. I have saved the email and will forward this straightforward simple fix to anyone who needs it. My net cost was $36.00 for the cable.

Officejet Pro L7590 printhead message (printheads only 2m. old)!

Pull out the printhead from the computer and check the date under "warranty ends" If the warranty period did not lapse, call HP technical support and tell them about the problem. They will replace the printhead for free. I have gone through 3 black/yellow printheads and I received the replacement printheads via FedEx within 1-2 days. They will send you a pre-paid envelope to return via U.S. Postal Service via US Postal Service.

If the Warranty date on the printhead expired, then you may have to come out of pocket to replace the printhead since HP will argue that they are not obligated to replace the printhead since the manufacturer warranty lapsed.

If this is the case, check to see when you purchased the printer. If the purchase was within a year, the retailer (i.e. Best Buy) is on the hook since there is a 1 year implied warranty on products such as printers, regardless of whether the expiration date on the HP printhead expired.

Hope this helps

1320 not 1320n

These days printers are cheaper than before. Why spend money and buy with no warranty.
I would never buy a printer or a computer second hand (used one) unless it is free.
If you are a business person why mess with the used stuff.

Need a printer

You are not going to need $5000 to purchase a printer for home use.  You could purchase a professional office copier for that much.  However,  I reccomend a Canon printer (not an Epson, the heads on those clog in disuse) called the MX850.  It is an All-in-one (it scans, faxes, and prints).  I have read some reviews of it, and it goes fast and prints very high quality.  If you print photos, the MX850 is probably the best printer for you.

If you'd like to order online, I found a website where it is available for $179.99.
