HP Deskjet F4140 tantruming


Try unplugging your printer from the wall outlet and leaving it that way for ~30min.
If this does no help then it means that a fuse has burnt out somwhere in the device.
Sadly there is no manual on how to disasemble a F4140, plus it would void your waranty.
I suggest you try to return it under waranty, just don't say you don't know why it stopped working ;]

Hope this helps!

I have just connected a HP Deskjet 3940 to my new acer computer and it is not printing. I went in print then options and clicked on a few things but still not working. Have new cartidges in 22 and 21

un install the printer driver,reboot ,windows should detect new hardware ,and then insert the cd that came with the printer select have disc and re-install the software.
if your acer has vista you may need to get a vista driver for it,or worse the printer is not compatible with vista.

good luck

I have an HP Deskjet F4180 (all in one) printer. The printer keeps kicking off line when not using it. Every time I go to use the printer I have to go through getting it back online (Pain in the tail)

that has to do with your settings. If you can access the setting on the printer you can change it to always on. Im not familiar with that printer but my okidata allows me to change it. you should be able to get into the setting by going to printers and faxes or start, control panel, printer & faxes. double click and find your printer. right click the icon and try going to properties and look in there for the option online/ offline. if not in there try printing preferences and check there. Hope this helps.
