DOWNLOAD FULL FEATURE SOFTWARE

  • Uninstall the older version, restart the computer and install the new version from downloaded file.
Thanks & Regards

Hi I think your printer has a parallel connector ( big D shaped socket with wire clips each end) on it if your pc also has a parallel plug get a parallel lead and install the drivers to use LPT1 this should remove the faulty USB plug from the problem
good luck Ian

Hello and welcome draepeacock !
The only solution is a workaround :
If you have the W XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of W XP on your machine from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/
If you still have the install disc , you can also partition your primary and install W XP on the new partition from http://download.cnet.com/Partition-Wizard-Home-Edition/3000-2094_4-10962200.html.Back up your data first.

Both are easy and safe , no specific knowledge required .
Regards .

HP DESK TOP 840C PRINTER CONNECTION


Hello,

They do make adater cables for such problems. Here is just one such example: Parallel to USB Cable

Make sure you get the correct 25 pin cable. They have this type also:

Parallel to USB Cable 2

You can search the web for more companies. Google parallel to usb printer cable.

After saying all that and checking your printer info, I see that the 840c has both a parallel and a USB cable port. See page 21 of the manual: HP 840c Manual

If you go that route, you will need a standard USB cable. The shorter the better, but no longer than a 6' cable. Make sure you follow the iinstallation instructions for the USB setup in the manual.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Hp 840c no red printing


Dip the head area of cartridge in hot water by 2 to 3 seconds two or three times and use tissue to check the color, if all three color comes out to tisssue paper, then it works else you have to replace the cartridge.

Here is the HP website for your product. Start with the version of windows that you have and download the latest software and drivers based upon that version. I am fairly sure that may be the problem.
