I have an HP 3210 printer and Windows XP. Whenever I start my PC I get a message from Document Viewer asking me to install it from a removable disk. I can't find the disk.

Diagnostic startupDiagnostic startup enables Windows to determine the basic device drivers and software to load when you start Windows. When you use this method, the system temporarily disables Microsoft services such as Networking, Plug and Play, Event Logging, and Error Reporting. Also, you permanently delete all restore points for the System Restore utility.

Note Do not use this method if you want to save your restore points for System Restore or if you must use a Microsoft service to test a problem.

To perform a diagnostic startup, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK.
  2. On the General tab, click Diagnostic Startup, and then click OK.
  3. Restart your computer.
If the problem does not occur, use Selective startup mode to try to find the problem by turning individual services and startup programs on or off. Selective startupSelective startup enables you to select the files and the settings that you want the computer to load when you restart the computer. Select from the following options:
  • Process System.ini File
  • Process Win.ini file
  • Load System Services
  • Load Startup Items
By default, no options are selected. The following actions apply to these options:
  • When you select the check box, the configuration file is processed when you restart the computer.
  • When you clear the check box, the configuration file is not processed when you restart the computer.
  • When the check box is selected, and you cannot select the check box because it appears dimmed, some items are still loading from that configuration file when you restart the computer.
  • When the check box is not selected, and you cannot select the check box because it appears dimmed, the configuration file is not present on the computer.
  • You cannot change the Use Original BOOT.INI option button.
Note When you clear the Load System Services check box, you disable Microsoft services such as Networking, Plug and Play, Event Logging, and Error Reporting. You also permanently delete all restore points for the System Restore utility. Do not clear this check box if you want to keep your restore points for System Restore, or if you have to use a Microsoft service to test a problem.

To perform a selective startup, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK.
  2. On the General tab, click Selective Startup.
  3. Select or clear the available settings.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Restart your computer.
  6. Repeat steps 1 through 5 until you find the problem.

HP laserjet P3005n. Cannot get jobs to print from bypass tray (1)

It could be a flag issue or sensor issue but, you should always try the easy stuff first. Check to see if the manual feed is on. To do this:
Press the check mark and arrow down to configuration menu
Press the check mark and arrow down to printing menu
Press the check mark and arrow down to manual feed, highligt the on and press the check mark.

In this setting the paper (if present) should pull from tray 1 first.

Let me know if this resolved the issue, if not, we can try another test.

I push the scan button and it wont scan

There are several reasons why this may occur. The causes for this problem fall into four categories:
  • A system configuration problem.
  • The task that monitors the SCAN button is not running.
  • A cable problem.
  • A hardware/software conflict. NOTE: The SCAN button on the front panel is not functional when the unit is installed in the Windows 2000 operating system. The Windows 2000 drivers do not provide this functionality. Initiate any scans from the HP scan viewer software, or from within a TWAIN-capable application.
  • The computer might not be configured to work well with the HP Officejet software. Follow these instructions to resolve this issue:
    1. The power management features for the hard drive must be disabled. Click Start , Settings , and Control Panel . Double-click Power Management . Set Turn of hard disks to Never , and click OK .
    2. Turn off Windows Active Desktop. Right-click an empty space on Windows Desktop. Place the cursor on the Active Desktop menu item to reveal the sidebar menu. If Display As Web Page has a check beside it, click Display As Web Page to clear that selection and turn off Windows Active Desktop.
  • The software that checks that the Scan button is pressed may not be running. Follow these instructions to resolve this issue:
    1. To see if it is running, press CRTL + ALT + DELETE at the same time to bring up the Close Program dialog box.
    2. Look through the list of programs, and see if HPMDLBWA (HP Officejet R Series) or HPODLB08 (PSC 500) is listed as a running program. This task checks if the Scan button is depressed and must be running for the button to work. If it is present, go to Step 3.
    3. Click Cancel , Start , Programs , and Startup . See if HPMDLBWA (or HPODLB08 for a PSC 500) is listed in the Startup group. If it is listed, and it was not running when checked, restart the computer, and check it again.
    4. If HPMDLBWA (or HPODLB08 for a PSC 500) is not listed under Startup , uninstall the software by clicking Start , Settings , Control Panel , and Add/Remove Programs . Highlight the HP software, and click Remove . Restart the computer, then reinstall the software.
  • The printer cable may be loose, bad or not IEEE-1284 compliant. Follow these instructions to resolve this issue:
    1. Check the printer parallel port cable to see if it is IEEE-1284 compliant. It may not be a bidirectional compliant cable if this marking does not appear.
    2. Double-click the product Toolbox , and click the Services tab.
    3. Click Test Product Communication , and Test . If the communication test does not pass or does not indicate that Two Way Communication is Working Properly , there might be a cable problem or a hardware or software conflict. Loosen both ends of the cable, and resecure them. Perform the communication test again. If it fails again, try a different cable if available.
  • There may be a software or hardware conflict. Follow these instructions to resolve this issue:
    1. If a printer with a status monitor, a scanner, a multifunction device, or another parallel port device such as an external drive or a switch box is previously installed, these devices and all associated software should be removed. Consult the product vendor for assistance with this. Try pressing the SCAN button as each device is removed to see if the problem is eliminated.
    2. Click Start , Programs , HP Officejet R-Series , and HP Precisionscan , or click Start , Programs , HP PSC 500 , and HP PSC Scanning for the PSC 500. The scanning software should load. If the software loads successfully, the problem is most likely a software conflict.
    3. Close all running applications.
    4. Press CTRL + ALT + DELETE to bring up the Close Program dialog box. In Windows NT, select Task Manager .
    5. Explorer, Systray and HPMDLBIA (or HPODLB08 for a PSC 500) are the only tasks that are to be left running. Highlight one of the remaining tasks, and click End Task . The Close Program window will close so it will be necessary to repeat Steps 3 and 4 several times to come to the desired files. In Windows NT, End Process on everything that is allowed by Windows NT, except for the HP process.
    6. Press the SCAN button, and see if the software loads. If it loads, one of the tasks running in the background is causing a conflict.
    7. Restart the computer, and End Task one task at a time, pressing the SCAN button after each task is ended to determine which task is causing the problem.

Hi -- I have a H P scanjet G4010 - no response -- have unpluged-reloaded software-checked power cord Help !! charles knierim -

Are you getting any power at all to the scanner? Or is it just not responding to the scan command?

If it is the former, then check the wall socket if its viable or not. Next check the power cable and try a different cable if available. If these two are OK, then it could be an issue with the scanner's power board, in which case you will have to get it either serviced, or purchase a new scanner (whichever works out cheaper for you..)

If it is the latter case, uninstall the scanner software and driver and do a 'clean boot' as outlined below. First download the latest version of the scanner software for your OS from

1. Open the Windows Control Panel.
2. Open the Add / Remove Programs window.
3. Locate the listing for the software and remove it. When prompted to remove the scanner drivers files, click Yes.

The following is the procedure for a 'clean boot'. I am assuming that you have XP.

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG --> Click OK
2. On the General tab, choose Selective Startup
3. Uncheck Process SYSTEM.INI file
4. Uncheck Process WIN.INI file
5. Uncheck Load Startup Items
6. Click on the Services tab
7. At the bottom, check Hide All Microsoft Services
8. Uncheck all boxes in the window or click the button labeled Disable All
6. Click OK
7. Click Restart

After restarting, reinstall the downloaded software. Next, do the following:

1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG--> Click OK
2. Replace checkmarks in the items that you previously removed them from.
3. On the General tab, choose Normal Startup
4. Click OK
5. Click YES, when asked to restart your computer

To Boot Clean in Windows Vista:
Accessing the System Configuration Utility
1. Click Start and select ControlPanel
2. Click System and Maintenance
3. Click Administrative Tools
4. Double Click System Configuration

Configure Selective Startup options
1. On the General tab, choose Selective Startup
2. Uncheck Load Startup Items
3. Select the Services tab
4. Check Hide all Microsoftservices
5. Click Disable all
6. Click on OK
7. Click Restart.

Install the downloaded device driver/software.After performing the necessary steps, restore your system by doing thefollowing:
1. Click Start and select ControlPanel
2. Click System and Maintenance
3. Click Administrative Tools
4. Double click System Configuration
5. On the General tab,choose Normal Startup
6. Click Ok
7. Click Yes, whenasked to restart your computer

Test paper

Can only think that if the printer has a menu screen there may be an option to turn off that function. If it is only happening when you use it within office software...that the option is there to switch off the function......more often than not that is the case.

MY test page always prints


I belive that after replacing the INk cartridges, you are experiancing this problem. The Alignment test sheet always prints everytime you turn on the printer, if u haven't completed the Alignment process.

To complete the Alignment process,
>>Once the printer finished printing the Alignmnet test sheet.
>> Place the Test sheet staright on the scanner glass facing down towards right hand corner.
>>Press the scan button(color), the Power ON light will start flashing, wait until it stops flashing.
>>Alignmnet process completed.

Thank You
