    Apparently HP did not put the toolbox function in the driver embedded in Vista. Very sad!

    Exactly the same problem - no Toolbox for 940c with Vista

    Same thing, no Toolbox, and also on printer assistance window, the exit and the back button won't work. Have to click on "home", and start over. To close window, have to right click on taskbar description, and left click close to exit.

    No Toolbox on Vista! But can align and clean cartridges by: L.C. Start, L.C. Control Panel, L.C. Printer, Right Click on hp deskjet 940c icon, to open menu, L.C. on Properties, L.C.on Services tab to access Maintain My Printer, and Check box to Clean the print cartridges, or Align the print cartridges.

    Hi. I have every page I print coming out a pale gray and images coming out in horrible colours! My hp 940c toolbox which I used to use on XP seems to have disappeared now I'm on Vista. Lovely to be able to plug and play but I want to see my ink levels and check for problems. Tried hp website and everything there seems to just be drivers - surely this help with my issue?

Where can I download the deskjet 932c toolbox?


try downloading complete driver and software from HP.

You can open the door and the ink will go to the smily face or the frown telling you ink is low or good.

Printer does not print at all


Did u remove the cellotape that covers the printhead of the new cartridge?
Other solution:
if using XP: use the HP toolbox to prepare the new catridges for firsttime printing.
If using Vista, go to start-controlpanel-printers and rightclick on hp940C icon, choose properties, select services and do a cleaning and prepare job.

HP deskjet 940c toolbox


Thanks. Without finding Toolbox ( to Clean/Align my printer) I went to Control>Printer>Cick on my printer>Properties>Services>Clean or Align

Interesting that FixYa manages to intervene when I was trying originally to get to HP !!
