HP laser Jet 2840

This machine is supposed to read xD picture cards. When I put a FujiFilm M 1gb xD-picture card in the reader, I get an error message "unknown memory card" error. I know the card is good, because I took it next door & my neighbor downloaded my pics to his computer.  Please Advise.

Try using a different Memory card and see if it reads it, if not you might need to replace the memory card reader.

It wont read the cards

A: Make sure you're using a supported memory card. See the table below for specifications:

Memory Card Type Maximum Capacity CompactFlash Card
(Type I and Type II--3.3V only) 8GB Microdrive (3.3V only) 4GB SD (Secure Digital) 2GB MultiMediaCard 1GB

If you connect a compatible CompactFlash (CF) adapter that can read 8GB memory cards, you can also use the memory cards listed below (with a capacity up to 8GB):

  • Memory Stick
  • Memory Stick Duo
  • Memory Stick PRO
  • Memory Stick PRO Duo
  • xD-Picture Card
  • SmartMedia Card (3.3V only)

The 2355 gives an error when I plug in a SD/SDHC Memory card, it won't read it.

Your HP all-in-one can read the following memory cards: CompactFlash (I, II), Memory Sticks, MultiMediaCard (MMC), Secure Digital, SmartMedia, and xD-Picture Card. Note: It will not read an SDHC.

An 80 service error is an MIO error. That is one of the accessories that is in the option slot in the rear of the machine.
  1. Turn of the machine.
  2. Unscrew and remove the Option card.
  3. Slide the card back in.
  4. Power the machine back up.

If the card is an option that ou do not use (such as a network card) You can just leave it out if you wish.
Please let me know if this helps.

HP Officejet Pro L7680 Problem - memory card reader

You should see in "My Computer" a few drives that read "Removable disk". They refer to the memory card slots on the printer. Double click on each one until you find the one that your card is in.
