Dots on print out


hi textmum,

Usually anomalies of this kind on the print output indicates that the printer is overdue for a maintenance cycle. This is due to the usual operating wear and tear the printer experiences during it's life cycle.

Seeing as how this could be an expensive operation, I suggest we first eliminate problem with the printer driver as the cause of the anomalous print output. To do this I need you to reinstall the printer on your PC using the latest drivers:

  1. Download the latest driver for your printer at
    http://www.samsung.com/za/support/download/supportDown.do?model_nm=ML-1520&mType=DR&vType=L&disp_nm=ML-1520
    (be sure to select the driver which corresponds to the operating system you are running on your PC)
  2. Delete the printer from your PC
  3. Install the printer using the newly downloaded driver
If reinstalling the printer using the latest print driver doesn't result in a solution to the print output problem, we can deduce that the problem is caused by a hardware component.
To solve the hardware related problem you will need to either perform the maintenance cycle yourself or take the printer to a computer repair shop so a IT technician can do it for you. This process involves buying a maintenance kit (which contain replacement components for the printer), and replacing the components according to the maintenance kit manual.

Hope you find this information helpful in solving your printer related problem

I have no clue why he would give you an Epson disc. Anyway, you can download your driver from HP's Site.

1. Unplug USB cable to printer, then from Control Panel > Printers delete any printers there.
2. Reboot
3. Install new drivers from the site above.
4. Plug USB cable back in.

Enjoy

We have a new computer. We used to have our hp officejet All-in-one on our Gateway ME. We were wondering if we could install our All-in-one to our new Gateway Vista???


You'll have to go to the HP site and download the Vista drivers for that printer, but it should work. Install the software first, then plug the printer into the USB port!.

Hi,
try uninstalling any software relating to the printer.
shutdown the computer. Remove any printer to computer cables. Re-boot ( startup ) the computer.
let it set itself up. then shutdown.
turn off the power to computer, put your printer cable back in, as if you were installing it for the first time.
the computer should have found new hardware ( your printer ) And ask for a driver. ensure your HP disk is in the drive, and ask to search Drive D:- Or E:- wherever your CD is located.
If it,s already got the latest drivers installed, i would,nt worry unless your printers not functioning correctly.

HP Printer Conflict


Perform a clean and "No bloated" installation of the hardware.
Uninstall ALL the HP printer software, disconnect the PSC and reboot the computer.
When windows finish to load, connect the PSC again, the new hardware wizard will show up, follow the instructions with the HP Installation disk in the drive.
IMPORTANT: When a silver sand glass show up in the screen, CANCEL the installation of the HP software (this is by clicking "CANCEL" button or by no accepting the license terms). This will install only the PSC Drivers and nothing else.
Try printing again.

It is important that you have that icon by the clock. Power off the printer by pressing the power button on the printer.

Create a folder on your hard drive and name it, "HP DeskJet 840C". Go to this link listed below & download the printer driver software listed. When you save to disk you can choose where you want to save. Pick the folder you created. Save inside this folder. The HP driver (Will most likely be updated software).

Windows vista versus printer


The answer to your problem lies in HP. Here is what you need to check (and even though your printer is an older model I suspect HP will have an updated driver for it). Go to the HP website...do the normal thing of putting in your model et al and wind your way through the maze until you get to a page that will show you the CURRENT driver for your printer. By current I mean most recent.
Often you will also find what it supports. There is VIRTUALLY NO REASON the printer should not be supported (and if there is not a driver...complain loudly to HP). Download the driver to a named temporary file (i.e. myhpprinterdirver) you create (follow the prompts). Then uninstall everything connected with the printer....that means the add/remove dialogue where you uninstall and (upon completion) go back in and remove the HP directories.
Having done that turn off the computer, plug in the printer and turn the computer on (plug and play should detect it), and (if I remember correctly) escape from that dialogue, go the temporary folder you have created and run the setup program. FYI...HP, for reasons that amaze many of us, created very large files (actually with many drivers in them) for downloading. After you get your printer running you may want to delete the folder if you are tight for space on your drive. This should work if (and this is an if I stress with all people) your machine is maintained. That translates to running scandisk once a week, defragmenter once a month, using Ccleaner (free on the internet), using Spybot Search and Destroy (also free), and Avast or AVG for a virus scanner....(also free). Just those tools eliminate cross linked files, registries that have a zillion old links, unnecessary junk, etc. Deleting programs you do not use is also suggested. Now why do I suggest this...well, it's simple (at least from my perspective) the more stuff you have the more can go wrong (hiccups) and not doing maintenance or protecting your machine can make problems like you are having difficult to solve. As an example I have had what I can only call (and it was a singular interrelated problem) operating-system-driver-multiple application messes that required reloading in a specific sequence to fix the "issues". This may be a bit of an overkill as a response but (since I find most folks don't think "maintenance" on a product infinitely more complex than an automobile but would never not change the oil) it should cover all the possibilities. On the slight chance that it does not work try the printer on another computer. If that does not work you may have a defective printer. The more or less normal life in a heavy office environment on an older ALL-in-One is 4 years. I have had a 1210 (older than yours) for (I think) 6 years and it gets a real workout...I refill the ink cartridge weekly. Trust this helps. Tango.

First off you need to connect the printer to your computer. Make sure the fax is plugged into the phone line. Then install the correct drivers for your printer.

If you have vista follow this: link click here

Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.
