Question about HP DeskJet 3940 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

HP Deskjet 3940 will only print job in que when computer is restarted?

It seems that our printer is (somewhat) possessed!? I feel fairly comfortable working around problems on the computer, but haven't been able to figure this one out. The print job will go into the cue just fine, but will just sit there and not print...until the computer is restarted. Then on startup, as soon as most of the "thinking" is done, the printer will sometimes print the document just fine, or if it is a word document or word processing document, sometimes it will print it with jarble (*&#&$*&$*#).
Another thing I've noticed is sometimes when there is absolutely no other programs running, it might print (or might not) - but it's not guaranteed. That's just been the problem, it's off an on.
Any friggin clue out there!?!?!?

3) printer driver damaged; - need to reinstall the printer driver with the CD provided;
4) print spooler service not activated in windows - need to enable the print spooler service in window console service;

HP Deskjet 3940 (Paper Jam)


I have a HP Deskjet 3940 printer. And similarly to this problem here I had a paper jam that would not clear, despite removing all the paper that was stuck in it, and following all 4 steps stated on the HP website. Such as taking the back cover off and blowing dust away and turning it off and on, etc.

None of these steps worked for me and consequently I couldnt get any new jobs to print - kept saying 'paper jam'. I was about to head down the shop to buy a new printer when i tried one last thing, which HAS fixed the problem!

I put in a large stack of paper onto the feeder. and then pushed it forcefully in and out repeatedly. To my amazement this has solved the paper jam. As a very last resort, might be worth trying this?
