If the cable you are using is USB.
Try these steps.
1.Right click on MY computer ->Properties->Hardware->Device manager.
2.You will get Device manager window popping out.
3.Scroll down to "Universal Serial BUS controllers".Click on the (+) sign.
4.Check for the "USB Composite Device" and right click on it, click Uninstall.(IMPORTANT NOTE:WE HAVE TO UNINSTALL THE PRINTER'S USB COMPOSITE DEVICE, TO KNOW WHETHER IS THE PRINTER'S USB COMPOSITE DEVICE, RIGHT CLICK ON USB COMPOSITE DEVICE AND PROPERTIES,look for what location says, Eg -LOCATION : HP Office jet 7400)
5.Disconnect the USB and reboot the PC.

it may be the settings in the printer itself. it does need to be configured to work on the network, you will need to see if it is on the network firstly. then setup ip settings afterwards to get it going, then a re setup on the computer.
If you would like additional assistance with setting it up I am available to do it with you on TeamViewer so you can watch what I do for next time.
This model printer does not have a network connection therefore to print via wireless from the laptop, the printer needs to be connected to a computer and setup as a shared printer. This computer must be connected to the wireless router with a LAN cable. Please click on this link and follow my instruction to configure a shared network printer :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
you might want to check to see if the wireless for this machine is connected to main pcb, if so, disconnect, you will have to pull off the back of the machine, requires #10 torq bit, cable is a 4 wire cable, it travles from right of machine to left of machine, the only other cables that travel from right to left, is speaker cable, only 2 wire, and then the doc feed cable, which has 8 to 10 wires on it. if problem still continues, then main pcb will need to be replaced.
Am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but your printer is not a wireless printer by default. If you would like to be able to print wirelessly and have a bluetooth connection on your laptop/desktop, you have the option of buying an adapter.
The HP bt300 wireless printer adapter uses Bluetooth wireless technology allowing you to print without using a cable. In general, Bluetooth wireless technology is a short range wireless technology that allows connection between devices without requiring a cable. By using your HP bt300, printing is possible from a camera phone, PDA, digital camera, or computer (currently to a computer using the Windows operating system only) to selected HP printers.
Unfortunately, this adapter runs about 145-153$ not including shipping or handling. Am probably giving myself a two star rating by saying this, but your best bet might be to just purchase a wireless printer. I have a wireless 3-in-1 (scan/fax/print) that I bought for about 120$ and it works like a dream. Check out your local Office Depot or Best Buy and take a look.
I am not sure about that problem. However if the printer has an ethernet connection, you should be able to and xp should find it. If the printer does not have ethernet connection you need to check with the router manufacture. Hope this helps.. Let me know.
