    hi jaylex thankyou for this information, things like this are always good to know.

    i have had other printers on other machines and for the most part have always ended up in trouble. my hp printer ive had for over 6years and i was loath to give it up as this printer is the best and (for me anyway) the most reliable. because this one has aways been so good i bought another hp printer for another machine and that has turned out to be just as reliable so for me now hp is the only way to go thankyou for your help .

Well at least you admitted the embarrassment but there is not program to reset the waste tank and I work on HP all day every day you have a reset code on Canon and Epsom ink printers.

My HP deskjet 880C is only printing in black and pink (no blue, no green, not red)

If your printer has a toolbox feature, try cleaning the printer head. I have found out with HP printers that I have owned to stay away from remanufactured ink cartridges or generic brands. I use genuine ink cartridges and buy mine from Ebay for very good prices. Just a thought.

Printing random characters

Hi there

This I think is the driver, best to remove the printer driver off the PC close down, and restart again then reinstall the printer driver back to your pc.

All the best Pineworks

Just purchased an iMac computer for my HP DeskJet 880C

You can log on to the hp site and get the current driver/printer software for your printer. Get the mac os version and install via usb. Download and install then restart your imac... then attempt a print...
Should work fine with an iMac.

Printer deskjet 880c

Maybe there's some document stuck in your printqueue. Next to the systems clock (on the bottom right of your screen) there should be a small printer icon.

Doubleclick it, the printer's queue should appear. If not right click it and choose printequeue.

In the printqueue screen go to File > Cancel all (or an options similar. If the queue is empty. Try printing again. If it won't empty, restart your machine, and try emptying it again (or chech whether it's now empty)

If this doesn't work, download the driver installer from HP's site.
Use the following link:
[HP Deskjet 880c Driver page]

First select your OS though.

Let me know if this helped.
