Question about Apple HP DeskJet 940c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

This is the title and below is the body

Is this printer for Apple computers?  What does; Apple HP DeskJet 940c InkJet" mean?  Is there a 940c just for Apple computers?  I am confused the way it is worded "Apple HP DeskJet..."
Anyway, my 940c all the sudden started making this odd noise and no printing.  It is hooked up to a MacBokpro and has worked well until this current issue.  The noise is not a grinding noise.  I was printing a 100 page notebook that was going well until all the sudden it stopped and started making the noise but the loudest it has been.  it is had to describe the noise.  If I had to I would say some rollers are moving with ...I just stopped to see if I could describe the noise better, took out the ink cartridges, and inserted them and the yellow light does not blink, the gren ligh stay lit, and it prints.  I was looking for the toolbox like I had on the Sony Vaio but I guess it is not on here.  I will say that printers are a different game with an Apple than with a windoze system.  it lok like it prints.  I was loking for the tool box but can't ind it.  what I did find is interesting.
Anyway, what do you think about a Canon PIXMA MX700 all-in-one for this Mac?  I had 3 HPs that I could not get to work wirelessly.  I used applecare, hp tech help, spent hours trying to get one at a time to work at least print and one other function wirelessly.  They are supposed to do all except scan wirelessly.  The Canon I have in the wings is suppose to do all, even scan, fax, etc. wirelessly.  Time will tell.

Hi there the noise you are getting might be the ink carriage stuck or the paper pickup lever stuck in position. Check these move freely. Also most printers are compatible with Mac now all you have to do is either check on the website for that printer or you can download new drivers for them at the manufacturers website.

Thanks J

Have HP Deskjet 940c on Windows 7. Only drivers available are from Win 7 but those drivers no longer display ink levels. What does?

Find another computer (laptop?) that is running Windows XP or Vista. Install the HP device-drivers.
Connect the printer to that other computer, and use the software to display the ink-levels.

Copy count - how can I find it on my HP Deskjet 940c?

If holding the resume button or ink button doesn't printout a status report, you need to look on your computer with the printer hooked up, in the maint. tab for that printer in the control panel. You just have to look around, sometimes in printer preferences or advanced maint.
