Is there a fix to this problem with the officejet r40 hook up to windows 7 professional

Hi there,

First, You need a 25 pin to USB converter to connect your Printer to Win PC.

Then, you need to simply connect the printer to PC and you will find a printer icon in the Devices and Printers folder to print.

There are no drivers available from HP as this printer is old and HP no longer designs the drivers, you will be using the inbuilt drivers from Win 7 to use your printer.

HP6110 All in one

When the HP Office jet series all-in-one front panel screen displays Memory Full, the HP Office jet all-in-one is not able to send, receive or forward faxes. Copying will also not work. WORKAROUND: Though the memory buffer should clear itself automatically after proceeding with the next task, like receiving a fax or starting a copy job, these suggestions below may help you clearing the memory buffer by:
  • Add paper to the HP Officejet series paper tray
  • Clear a possible print jam and proceed printing the fax.
  • Reduce the copying or faxing resolution via the front panel's menu.
  • Use the HP Manager to send a (group) fax or making a copy. More memory is available this way, as the HP Manager utilizes the PC memory. When sending a group fax, the HP Officejet all-in-one's memory is filled to capacity. To copy in color is only possible from the HP Officejet Manager.
  • Press START to clear the message. If this message persists, unplug the power cord, and after at least 15 seconds plug the power cord in.
CAUSE: The HP Officejet series memory may be full due to: Copying on Photo quality or sending a group dial, which will use an extensive part of the internal memory's capacity. No paper in the paper supply tray, while receiving a fax. This may result that the data remains in the buffer. Print jam while receiving a fax or copying. The data is still stored in the buffer. System error displayed on the HP Officejet display window. SUMMARY: The HP Officejet series will not fax or copy without sufficient memory to store the data of the page in the buffer before printing the receiving fax or the copy.

Won't print black and white, looks blue


HP uses a system for black that prints a base ie: Cyan / *blue then overprints it with black...

Sounds like you are either out of black or you have an ink clog?

If so... you need to use a print head cleaner like Magic Inkjet Flush you can get a kit on Ebay.

Good Luck!
