C4189 all in one

C4180 all in one printer.When I boot the computer & the printer’s on, we can’t get a monitor screen. It’s black & unresponsive. I turn off the printer the computer boots up with a screen, then we can turn on the printer & all is well. Is there someone else who has had this problem & is there a setting or fix that I can download. Thanks

    I have the sam problem and have tried the different usb ports as well as purchasing a new cord. Has anyone come up with any reasons this may be happening? As the previous person stated, if the printer is on, my system will not start up (has a blank screen). If it is off, I can boot up and after system is up turn on printer and all works fine.

That's weird, but try moving the usb cable of the printer to another usb port... If not replace the cable with a new one, might be faulty.

How do I troubleshoot an unresponsive HP LCD monitor?

The easiest thing to do is find another monitor to plug in to determine if it is the monitor or the computer. Just because something has been stored does not mean that something fried the first time you plugged it back in. LCD monitors are notorious for having bad capacitors.

Install the software on the laptop first and when it asks to connect the device, continue without connecting. Once finished, ensure the printer on the desktop is being shared in the printers folder. Then on the laptop add a device and search the network. If your 2 computers have the network established it should see it.

Printing in black only on HPC4180

Click on Start> Settings/Control Panel> Printers and faxes> Right click on the default printer icon and left click on Properties> under properties you will see Printing references> there you see a option to use black cartridges only select it and apply and ok.
And try to print.
If not whenever you ptint any document you will see the printer where you can make selection of printers, even there you can right click on the printer and choose to print only in black.

Good Luck
