HP Deskjet 840c - Printing Emails

Hi, I have a printer (HPDJ840c) connected direct to a computer, I can print test pages and some emails, but other emails won't print.

The settings are the same for all the documents I print (A4, portrait, memo style) sometimes I get the message saying the document was sent and the printer sounds like it will start printing then doesn't, other times I get the message confirming printing then nothing. I don;t get the printer Icon in the system tray.

However, when I select a different email to print it works fine... I've reinstalled/updated the drivers and I can print to another (networked) printers. Just a few emails sent to the 840c are being a PITA. Any ideas?

Thanks

Rob

Hope you can help.

I did see you reinstalled your software) but please continue
It is important that you have that icon by the clock. Power off the printer by pressing the power button on the printer.
Please un-install your printer software through Add/Remove Programs within the control panel. Please restart the Pc after un-install is complete. Create a folder on your hard drive and name it, "HP DeskJet 840C". Go to this link listed below & download the printer driver software listed. When you save to disk you can choose where you want to save. Pick the folder you created. Save inside this folder. The HP driver (Will most likely be updated software). I promise, you will have a icon down by your clock when finished.

Follow the instruction in your manual for setup & installation.
If you using Outlook Express & you want to print or send through your printer the page should be set as 8.5x11". Orientation should be set to Portrait, unless you set this for A4.
Lastly, please turn off your anti-virus software during install & re-install. Just in case you come back to this thread!
please vote...

How do i install the drivers for a deskjet designer 720c plotter on a pc with xp pro


Dear HCUSH,
Click on the link below:
http://members.driverguide.com/driver/de...

Click on the HPVUD50.zip link, this will take you to a page where you can buy it for $2.99, download it IF you view about 8 ads (Just select no thanks, or next ad) which is what I did. Or get a premium membership.

Needless to say I have the file downloaded and if you had you email open I would send it to you. It is 2.41 meg zip file and has the 720C dll in it. So just select the button to view the ads and download it.

Once downloaded, unzip it into a directory, and add printer> local (Dont detect) > Select I have disk and browse to the directory you unzipped to. Then select the 720c and you should be good!

ADDED###########
Another way is click add printer > NEXT> Local (Dont automatically detect) Next> LPT1 (assuming it is not USB) > Select HP in the left window, then select HP DeskJet 720C in the right window. click Next> Next> Next> Next> Finish. Click OK, It should now be printing a test page.

Sure this helps

After replacing my color cartridge my printer won't print in color. but it will copy color pages perfectly.


When you go to print from IE check the prefrences and see if it is set to Monochrome. It should be under the Advanced tab.

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

Moisten a tissue with water-with some alcahol in its if available
stand the cartridge in it with the jets in the damp tissue for 24 hours
Then re try
Come back if still in trouble

Our Canon Selphy DS810 is not printing any color on the photo paper. I cleaned it several weeks ago, we have a new ink cartridge in and nothing. It was printing a light yellow color several weeks ago...


There are all kinds of printers and printing problems. It’s important to note at the outset that for safety reasons you should unplug your printer if you plan on working inside the device for any reason. In addition to the electrical hazard, printers (especially laser printers) can also be very hot on the inside, so use caution.

There are a few general troubleshooting steps you should take first, regardless of your printing problem. These will help solve most everyday printing issues.

Reboot. You’ll be amazed at how many printing problems simply disappear after you restart your computer. Also, reboot your printer. Sometimes, for no good reason, a printer will become wedged (it just stops communicating with the computer). Turning your printer off for a few seconds, and then back on, will usually get you going again.

Read the printer’s lights. Doing this can provide you with very useful clues. Is the power light on? Is the paper feed light blinking? Don’t be afraid to press buttons on the printer: Turn it off and on, reset the paper feed, and take the printer offline and bring it online again.

Check your physical connections. Is the power cord loose? Does the cable from the printer to the PC have a secure connection at both ends? Look at the connector pins on your cable. Are they bent? Try another cable if you have one. Check the print cartridges and printing mechanism. Is anything blocking the printer? Are the cartridges firmly in place?

Print a Windows test page. Access your printer’s Properties dialog box (follow the directions given above). Select the General tab and click the Print Test Page button. If nothing else, you can find out a good deal about your printer’s problem. If the test page prints, you have a problem with your application, not with Windows. Answer the questions as prompted and work through Windows’ Print Troubleshooter as needed.

Drivers. Verify drivers on the Details tab in the Printer Properties dialog box. Make sure the installed driver corresponds with your actual printer. Check the manufacturer’s Web site for updated drivers and browse the support pages on the site while you’re there.

My HP Deskjet F4140 was working fine until I got a piece of paper stuck. I removed and now it wont print. States printer off line and can not print a test page. IT will copy however.


Turn it off. Unplug the power cord from the printer & usb wait a minute. Plug USB in & than the power cable & turn it on. Next
Open the Printers folder.
Right-click the icon of the printer in use, and then click Open .
Click Printer on the menu, and then ensure that there are no checkmarks next to Pause Printing or Use Printer Offline . If a checkmark is present on either, click the menu option to remove it. If the menu shows Use Printer Online , click that option.
