My hp 5940 only prints half of each letter on the page


The only serviceable part of this printer is the ink cartridges which includes the print heads. The error is cause by a clogged or defective ink cartridge head. You can retract the cartridges and clean the head with a soft tissue, an 70% alcohol can be of help to loosen the inks. Reinstall the cartridges and test. If error is still there, replace cartridges with new one.
Good luck.

HP 5940: Can't clean print nozzles- the services facility is not installed but downloading drivers from net doesn't fix this. What next?


You can download the entire contents of your original installation CD from HP's site, look for it.
Also, try removing the cartridges and set the print head in household ammonia for 15-20 minutes, then blot on absorbent paper towels (don't scrub, it may pick up fibers) until you see that the printing surface of the cartridge is bleeding well.

I need step by step instructions as far as how to change cartridges in hp deskjet 5440 printer


[This is from HP.com]

Introduction This document explains the basics of installing or replacing the print cartridges. It is for a 5940 which is the same printer design, yours may look a bit different but I copied this from HP at the section for your printer so follow the instructions and you should be okay.
Insert the print cartridges
NOTE: The printer shown below is the HP Deskjet 5940 series printer. Your printer might look slightly different.
  1. Turn the printer on. The cartridge cradle will not move if the power is not on.
  2. Open the printer cover. Figure 1: Open the cover c00393707.gif
  3. Wait until the print cartridge cradle moves to the right side of the printer and is idle and quiet.
  4. If you are replacing a print cartridge, press down on the print cartridge to be replaced, and then slide it out of the print cartridge cradle. If you are installing print cartridges for the first time, go to the next step.
  5. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and carefully remove the plastic tape. Hold the print cartridge so that the copper strips are on the bottom and facing toward the printer. Figure 2: Remove tape c00393708.gif 1 - Protective tape CAUTION: Do not touch the print cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts. Touching these parts will result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. Do not remove the copper strips. They are required electrical contacts.
  6. Slide the print cartridge at a slight upward angle into the cradle until the cartridge snaps into place. Figure 3: Install the print cartridge c00393709.gif
  7. Repeat steps 3-4 for the remaining print cartridge.
  8. Close the printer cover. The printer automatically prints a calibration page.

Nor printing


Go to http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00453087.pdf which is the HP online manual for this printer. Open it and go to page 92. Follow the recommended troubleshooting steps carefully.
Note: It is likely that the cartridge you installed is "dry". Or (and this one is no fun) the cartridge you purchased is not compatible with the 5940. Does the left-side panel of the wrapper carton have a listing of "5940" under the paragraph HP Deskjet ?

Also, if you purchased a store-refilled or store-recycled cartridge, it may not work. I had this happen once with a refill. Sorry, but you'll have to dispose of the recycled cartridge and purchase the reall HP deal.

HP Deskjet 5940 reversed ink cartridges


It is best for you to take time to a Hp Center. You will damage the cart if you try to take them out. Hp service center has special tools which they use to take the cart out. If you are really good to them they will even do it free for you. It will not take more than 10 mins for the job.

Thanks
