    The error appears as ared light on the printer cover not paper jam orn load paper

    Best to try for a resetting .Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
    Use head cleaning before a test is taken . make sure all mechanical settings are good if not remove and reset after manually checking removing the motor, set roller spacing.

    I want to attax a scanner/printer to my pc, i dont have the disk but ive found a program to download - when ive done that it says i don't have enough c drive space?

    Check the space on your c drive then. If you do have enough space available but it still gives you that error then install it in any other directory.
    Good Luck!

    Printer will not install

    Hello. Thanks for choosing Fixya! Click on your start button and then on printers and faxes. Look and see what other printer drivers you already have installed. Delete any that you no longer need and THEN install your new disc. Regards, Joe

    I just put in a yellow cartridge. Previously the printer was working just fine. Now it is showing an error code: 10.92.00 So I put the old yellow cartridge back in. The same error code now appears? He

    Hi ron0911170:
    This is your problem.
    alternates with
    Open and close
    front door.
    The cartridges are not engaged,
    poor primary transfer bias contacts,
    defective high-voltage supply, or
    control signal errors.
    YY Description:
    00 - Black print cartridge
    01 - Cyan print cartridge
    02 - Magenta print cartridge
    03 - Yellow print cartridge
    1. Open and close the front door to fully
    engage the cartridges.
    2. Reseat the print cartridges.
    3. Check the printer primary transfer bias
    contacts to the transfer unit. Clean if
    dirty. If the contracts cannot be
    cleaned or they are damaged, replace
    the transfer unit.
    4. Replace the high-voltage power supply
    5. Replace the DC controller PCB.
    Hope this helps

    Trying to install 2600 series all in one but error pops up saying not enough disk space

    Was it ever installed? If no - them maybe you don't have enough disk space for the program and drives for this printer. (I assume XP) - click start - my computer - right click "c drive" - left click properties - is the circle mostly blue (used) or pink (free space). Free space need to be maybe at least 5- 25MB - defrag if not enough space. (If laptop - be sure it is plugged into power)

    Cannot install 6940 driver

    this is straight from hp
    64 MB RAM for basic software installation (256 MB RAM for full software installation), 200 MB available hard disk space for basic software installation (450 MB for full software installation)
    unless you get another 256mb memory it would be best for you to do basic installation.
