Question about Compaq Inkjet IJ650 Printer

Open Question

Hp 5650 only prints one line of symbols

I have canceled all print jobs and shut down the printer and computer and re-started but the problem persists. This is a "new to me printer" and I successfully downloaded the software from an HP site and it is showing the printer. What is wrong? I tried printing from Notepad- following the instructions and that didn't work either.

Any ideas?

Onmly Compaq will have the approprive driver download. You are correct to assume a Vista compatability issue- this is becoming more evirdent with many peripherals. By the bye- the printer is of course a rebadged Lexmark or HP or Brother [ can be either] see if you can see which and check the appropriate web site.

SOURCE: it does not print what's on the screen, it prints in symbols...

this happens sometimes and just requires for you to delete all of your print jobs, shut down your computer and restart

SOURCE: my printer is printing weird symbols

This can be the result of a corrupted font or a corrupted printer driver. Though it is a bit dated, please use this article to help you troubleshoot the source of the problem (even though you are not using word, it will help.) It may be necessary to reinstall the printer driver.
If you're in xp, you may first wish to try deleting all print jobs and clearing the print spooler cache. See instructions here.
If you need to download the latest printer driver from HP, you can do that by clicking here and choosing your OS. Here's a guide to updating drivers if you want a tutorial for that.
Finally, here are some troubleshooting links that may help in the event that the previous didn't work, or you wish for more detailed instructions.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

SOURCE: Compaq IJ600 Printer - error cleaning print nozzles

My thought is that the refilled ink cartridge some how got damaged and will now not let this cartridge or even a new cartridge perform the cleaning function.
I have to say. It may be best to fully remove the power to the printer and it's connection to the PC before powering the printer down. Leave it sit for about an hour and then plug the printer back into the PC first and then plug it's power back in.
See if this may help.
Blessings,

Error message 49 on my HP CP 2025 (printer shuts itself off and truns itself back on to see error message 49)


Firmware error:
1. Press CANCEL JOB to clear the print job from the printer memory. 2. Turn the printer off, and then turn the printer on. You can try reprinting the job to see if it was a temporary error. 3. If error persists, try printing a job from a different software application. If the alternate job prints, go back to the first application and try printing a different file. (If the message only appears with a certain software application or certainprint job, try upgrading the printer driver and / or firmware.) 4. If the message persists with different software applications and print jobs, disconnect all cables to the printer that connect it to the network or printer. Turn the printer off and delete the print queue. Then reboot printer AND computer, reconnect cables, and try printing again. 6. Remove all EIO devices from the printer (JetDirect cards, hard drives, etc.). If 49 error goes away, turn printer off, re-install EIO devices one at a time, and reboot printer each time to determine which EIO device is failing. 7. If printing still fails with all EIO devices removed, remove all memory DIMMs or third-party DIMMs from the printer. (Do not remove the firmware DIMM-- printer won't function without this installed.) Turn the printer on with DIMMS missing. If the error no longer exists, install each DIMM one at a time, turn printer on, test printer. Replace a DIMM if you determine that it causes the error. 8. Remember to reconnect all cables that connect the printer to the network or computer. 9. If the error persists, replace the firmware DIMM. 10. If error persists, replace the formatter.

Printer continues to print one line of symbols on every page. will not print anything else


Hello there Druffe,

This may be caused of any unsuccessful printing that you have initiated a while ago. You need to cancel all pending print jobs in the queue by right clicking the printer's icon in your system tray (lower right corner or your monitor) and choosing cancel printing. Also, shutdown your computer and power off the printer and unplug the power cords from the socket for like 10-15 minutes. Then after that, power on the computer and printer again. The pending print jobs should be deleted and you can start printing again. Good luck!

Error 49 4CO2 Service Error on a HP Laser Jet Printer 5500 DTN


This is related to the JetDirect Card and the specific print job attempting to print. If JetDirect is 615 or lower slide out JetDirect card and power cycle printer once it comes up o.k power down and
slide JetDirect card back in once the printer is back up look on the display for processing job which may take 5 minutes but it is the offending job trying to print again as it is still in the print que. If you are quick enough you can hit cancel on the display panel to cancel the corrupt printjob and if you are successful then the other print jobs stacked behind it should start printing away with no problem. Hp blames the 49 error on a plethora of problems though mine are usually related to documents using different versions of Adobe and also PowerPoint printjobs that are excessively large as the print spooler cannot handle them but it is always a corrupt print job and once that is cleared no problem. Occasionaly replacing the JetDirect card is required to solve the issue. With the 620 Jetdirect card no need to remove it just unplug the network cable same procedure as above.

Power light flashes and won't let me print - HP3650 no paper jam


Go into your control panel, go to your printer, right click it, then choose "Cancel all print jobs". You may also have to uncheck the "Pause Printing" function.
If all else fails, get the cd. remove the printer and reinstall the software after shutting the printer down and start from scratch just like it was new. If neither of those solve it, go to http://www.hp.com and download your owners manual. There you will find a troubleshooting section that will help walk you through what to do. Hope that helps.

well..assuming that the text is the same on all, this might be a settings issue, with the print spooler. That's in the set up of the printer, under properties..look into that, and perhaps you'll want to spool the whole job, instead of printing immediately?

print spooler memory is finite, so the longer jobs will take longer.
