Question about HP Photosmart D7160 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Would not turn off

I uninstalled the software and reinstalled. It seemed to solve my problem with the on/off but insisted the printer was set to print only PDF files. I uninstalled and reinstalled the software . but now the new found hardware wizard insists that the disk does not have installation information on it and/or that it can't find the 7200 software.-- Suggestions please!

Since you try to uninstall and reinstall the printer software, do you set up again the printer and try to print again the test page.

Most printer if it is not responding is it due to connection error like cable set up, port driver set up or the configuration of the printer or the print spooler had stop.

Please try hard reset of the printer.

  3. Close the top cover of the printer.
  4. Press the power button on the printer to turn the printer off.

The problem is my printer is only printing 2/3 of a page. its missing on the right hand side of the page. Ive done numerous test pages & they've come out fine. It seems to only happen in my email page.

The settings have been changed.
The fastest way to rectify this fault is to uninstall the printer drivers and reinstall.
Restart the computer after you have uninstalled the printer software before reinstalling
the software drivers again

Canon bjc-4300 cartridge insists on staying in middleofprintfield

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Normally to fix a printer that is printing gibberish, uninstalling and reinstalling the print drivers will fix this issue. Another thing that can contribute to gibberish print is using a USB cable that is too long.

With this particular problem (prints Zen), one solve is to uninstall any Dell toner management software. This is particularly true if you are running Vista and hooked up by USB. To uninstall the toner management software (Vista OS), go to control panel>programs>programs and feature>uninstall a program. From this list choose Dell software, choose a customized uninstall, and then choose anything that has to do with Dell toner management.

Try reinstalling the printer, some settings may be wrong,

uninstall from add or remove programs.

then insert the cd and install the software again, then install the printer by pluging it in when asked or after setup.

My 3100 printer insist to prform a print test every time I turn it on.

Your only solution for this awful printer/copier is to fully uninstall the software and then reinstall. There is no quick fix for this turkey of a printer. Good luck.
