  • newbie170 Dec 10, 2007

    my version is 3.2. isn't that newer than 2.0

  • newbie170 Dec 10, 2007

    p.s. i also need instructions on taking this apart??? i have looked all over the net. does anyone have instructions and pictures

  • newbie170 Dec 10, 2007

    i got a message that there was a new reply but there is nothing new here

  • newbie170 Dec 10, 2007

    apparently the "experts" seem to know less than i do. no one has even bothered to answer my questions directly with any better answers than you get from a novice tech support at hp.

    if you don't have any answers please just say so.

  • newbie170 Dec 10, 2007

    that is not a manual for taking apart the printer - just the set up manual. i want to get into the body of the printer and change non working parts of one printer to another.

    my original hp d135 office jet stopped working. the print mechanism will not move from the right side.

    i bought a replacement and plugged it in to my windows 98 se pc. i get a message that new hardware has been found. it is the exact same model.

    why does the pc see it as new hardwre?

    do i now install another set of drivers????? or remove the old drivers (which are a newer version) than the drivers on the cd that comes with the second printer?

    also is there any step by step instructions with pictures for taking apart these all- in -ones. i have 3 of them. perhaps i can make one working machine out of all of them if i can get these instructions. i do NOT need the set up manual. i need a schematic of the inner workings of the printer and how to completely disassemble them

  • newbie170 Dec 10, 2007

    ok

    now about the problem that the printer is not recognized as the original printer. the computer sees it as new hardware

    can you supply exact instruction for installation in safe mode. how come i can't do it the usual way

  • newbie170 Dec 10, 2007

    i have never installed anything from safe mode. could you please reply with the exact steps

  • newbie170 Dec 13, 2007

    when i try to install the drivers, i get a message saying this software is already installed. when i plug in the printer, it trys to install the software then cannot complete because it cannot communicate with the printer. i am going around in circles with this

  • newbie170 Dec 13, 2007

    i know the mechanism and the drivers have nothing to do with each other. the mechanical problems are with the original printer. the driver problems are with the replacement.

    now i have 3 non working printers.

A new printer although the same exact model has it's own id info so the computer ask for the new hardware installation. Just try and go to safe mode and reinstall your drivers.

    safe mode ensures that there are no conflicting drivers first when removing old drivers and installing new ones... When your computer boots just before the OS splash screen, press f8, then select safe mode and install from there...

  • Chris Montano
    Chris Montano Dec 11, 2007


    1. Turn off unit.

    2. Turn On to boot

    3. Wait until after the Bios info and then just before the Windows Splash Screen pops out (timing is everything)

    4. Press F8 at the top of your keyboard repeatedly at this point.

    5. If successful, you will see a bunch of options to boot on Normal Mode, etc. then Safe Mode

    6. Choose Safe Mode

    7. It will boot like Normal only that there are safe mode texts on the screen. It will prompt you that it IS on Safe Mode, press Yes or Ok

    8. It will load the desktop.

    9. After that you can proceed normally, insert installation CD and then install drivers.

    10. Restart and see if it detects it this time

Its all about the first thing for mechanism! mechanism has nothing to do with drivers! Your cartridge is not moving at all! Then the best thing is you should take it directly to hp service center to avoid further damage to hardware.

    Ok.. the print head sorry.. anyways instructions for getting it apart..

    You need a T10 Torx driver.

    Officejet D135, removing the case

    Remove the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF)
    1. Open the ADF 90 degrees. There is a black sliding latch near each hinge. Slide them up and the ADF lift off.

    Remove the Scanner
    1. Lift the scanner as if changing the cartridges.
    2. Disengage the hinged supports by prying apart the latches attaching their lower ends with a slot style screwdriver.
    3.
    Rotate the scanner 90 degrees and remove the metal plate at the left
    rear of the case. The plate is held in place by two T10 Torx head
    screws.
    4. Unplug the four cables interconnecting the electronics board and the scanner.
    5. Lift the scanner straight up and it will disengage from it's hinges.

    Remove the Case
    1. Inside to left is a gray ribbon cable. Unplug it.
    2. Remove the vertical panels on each side of the paper tray. Reach inside and grasp the edge, then pull outward.
    3. Remove the rear access door.
    4. Remove the two T10 Torx head screws on the top surface.
    5.
    Release the latch behind the panels removed in step 2. Release the
    finger latch on the underside of each end. Release the latch behind the
    two vertical surfaces in the rear. The case will now lift off.

    I have given you the detailed instructions on getting it apart.. Unfortunately i do not have any images.. Also the printer being detected as a new hardware i due to a configuration problem.. Just remove the drivers u have got now... then re-install the drivers from the cd u have got with the printer ..otherwise install it from the location i had given you and report back.. whether it worked.. I am really trying hard to check if any of my frnds have some images and will surely give you if i get them..

    eagle338 Dec 11, 2007

    Reboot your computer.. when its restarts keep pressing the f8 key... Then you will see a screen with a list of options such as safe mode, normal mode etc., From that just choose safe mode and press enter

You will need to re-install the drivers. Try using the CD that came with it. I'm sorry but I don't have any experience taking apart printers.

    Can't you install the drivers off of the CD that came with the printer? You can't get them from HP online anymore, therefore your most reliable source is the disk.

Starts to print but then the print mechanism gets "stuck" on the right-side. doesn't make any diff if there is a print ribbon in the printer or not.


Please give is some more information. For example is this an impact dot matrix printer or an ink jet?

Since you are using the term, "Ribbon," I'm going to guess at Impact printer.

Most current impact printers are bi-directional print mechanisms. This allows the print head to apply dots to the image in both directions.

Since you are saying the the print head jams at the right side there are several things that can be wrong. First, the printhead stepper motor may be driving the printhead beyond it furthermost right stop position and binding the head. The print head carrier stop may be bent or out of position allowing the carie to lock on the stop.

Second, the stepper motor may not have enough torque to bring the head back and will need to be replaced.

If I were trouble shooting this, I would first get the printhead over to the left edge, then power off the printer and see if I manually move the print head carrier left and right can I feel a mechanical bind in the carrier movement.

If not I would then check and see if any belts are loose. If there are no loose belt and no bind, I would consider replacing the stepper motor.

It wopuld reall help if you told us what printer model and manfactuer you have so the printhead drive system can be studied.

HP D135 PRINT error


I am sorry the print head goes out on the B And W on these things quite frequently. however you can go to www.hp.com amd go threw thier secdualed way of testing the print head but am sure you will find it defective. I had one and it was a problem. B e aware they have a new head that replaces the old head that lasts much longer.

The printer mechanism is stuck on the right side inside the print


I bought a new printer. Why would I go online looking for free advice, and then pay for advice that may or may not work? It was irritating getting suckered in by the Free Advice hook when no free advice was available.

HP D135 - replaced printhead - still doesn't print in that color


try this link : I followed the directions and fixed the problem. the instructions that came with the new printhead weren't really complete.

Here's essentially all I did for my fix - Opened the printer top, turned the printer off. Removed the "bad" printhead, cleaned the metal contacts on the printhead and printer with windex. Closed the printer. Turned it on. waited for it to reset. Opened the printer. Turned the printer off again. Installed the printhead. Closed the lid. Plugged the printer in again. When it was ready I accessed the HP toolbox and alligned the printheads and cleaned the printheads. It worked. Here's a link with photos.

Officejet d135 - "Supply Expired" error message


HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.

Hp d135 office jet same printer not recognised


New h/w found mesage will come up even if you will uninstall the usb printing suport from the deviece manager and reestart your computer with the same pinter so need not to worry. Moreover you need not to install the printer with other drivers, previous drivers can be used.
Regarding the step by step instructions to take apart the printers, that is with HP service centres and not available for all
