  • make sure the printer is compatible with the operating system on you pc,
  • check that when the printer is on, a light is lite,if not check power point,power pack (if used)
  • check all leads are firmly connected.
  • check in the printer folder, to see if it is installed on the pc.
  • if not re install it.
  • if you have not used it for a long time, the ink can dry up in the cartridge, but may still go through the motions of printing.
  • however some printers stop working when out of ink.
good luck with that

My HP deskjet F4440 is printing online doc. with a down left shift double letter any ideas? Prints fine except for online stuff.


If you are referring to websites this is common, because they are not printer friendly or made for printing. That is why some sites have a print option, that takes you to another page.

I have a Dell Dim 2400 and no connection with HP Deskjet 3070A.


Charles, has this combination worked previously, have you been able to print from your Dell Dimension 2400 to your HP Deskjet 3070A successfully?

If the answer to the above is Yes, then if you believe that the printer is still working correctly and you can test this with a different computer able to print to it, you should consider uninstalling and re-installing the HP software and device drivers for this printer.

If you have not printed to this printer successfully previously, have you tested the printer with a different computer and proven it is still working fine?

If the printer works fine to a different computer then providing you are using the same USB cable to connect to your Dell 2400, the problem needs to be narrowed down further.

Check that you can plus other USB devices into the port on the Dell used for the HP printer - if these work, then your USB port is good - if not, try another port if you have one.

If your USB hardware is good, then again you are left with the need to uninstall and re-install the HP software and device drivers - it may be worth trying to download the latest version of such software if available. HP tend to update their All-in-One software on a regular basis.

I AM ON THE WINDOWS XP AFTER INSTALLING THE DRIVER THE TEST PAGE IS PRINTED BY THE PRINTER BUT ON GIVING COMMAND FOR OTHER PRINTING THE PRINTER DOES NOT PRINT


Got to: start>settings(classic view)>control panel>printers and faxes.
An icon for your printer should be there. Right click the printer icon and select "use as default". While in control panel, you can run the troubleshooter. Sometimes it works. Sometimes the software doesn't install correctly. Uninstall the software from the add/remove software in control panel, then re-install the printer software.

Hello:

To resolve this situation try the following:

1) re-install a driver. Goto HP.com and download a anew driver. COmpletly uninstall the old one.

2) Force your deskjet to run a self test...disconnect the cable from the PC...power off the unit...hold down the print button...turn unit back on.

3) try a new cable

4) Download a manual here

I hope you are up and printing soon.

Good luck to you my friend,
