Simply unplug your printer from USB.

Install the NEW CD first. In some cases the software demands the connection to the printer (will ask for that! so wait!).

Restart your pc. Choose the NEW printer as the standard printer within printer settings!

I just bought and installed a new HP Pavillion computer. I had a HP Deskjet D1341 connected to my old computer that was working fine, After installing the new Pavillion and conecting the printer to the USB...


disconnect all the cabled from the printer and leaving behind only the power cable.
Then try turning on the Printer. If it still doesn't turn ON then it means that its a hardware fault. Please consult HP for it. But if in case it does turn ON (the chances of which is very less) then it could be a software issue with the computer. Let me know what happened.

The ink cartridges keep expiring and they are nearly all full .my machine is a hp photo smart 3310 all in one.How do i by pass the expiry dates on cartridges


Each ink cartridge has an expiration date to protect the printing system and ensure good ink quality. The cartridge expire date appears on line 53 of the self test report.Printing can continue without replacing the ink cartridge. Follow the instructions that appear on the HP product or on the computer. However, HP recommends replacing the expired ink cartridges. HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of expired ink cartridges. Service or repairs required as a result of using expired ink are not covered under warranty
As the printer operates, it moves ink from the ink cartridges into a printhead reservoir. The printer does not deliver a message when an ink cartridge goes empty, because it still has ink in the reservoir. The printer continues printing until the ink level in the reservoir falls to a first trigger point - then a message appears advising the printer owner to Replace Cartridges Soon . At this point, other cartridges that are empty but have not reached the trigger point are also mentioned in the message, to save trips to the retailer. After the first trigger point, the printer can continue printing until ink levels in the reservoir reach a second trigger point. At the second trigger point there is only enough ink left to perform vital servicing tasks, and a new message appears, saying Ink Cartridges Empty . The options offered depend on the usable inks remaining. If no options are offered, the cartridges indicated must be replaced before printing can continue. Reset the product
  1. Without turning off the product, disconnect the USB cable from the rear of the product. NOTE: The USB cable connects to the port on the back of the product. The port is labeled with the USB icon (c01424575.gif ).
  2. Remove the cartridges from the product.
  3. Wait for the 'Insert Cartridges ' message to display on the control panel.
  4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
  5. Wait 60 seconds.
  6. Reconnect the power cord. If the product does not automatically turn on, press the Power button .
  7. Reinsert the cartridges, and then close any open doors on the product.
  8. If you receive a prompt to print a calibration page, do so.
  9. Reconnect the USB cable to the rear of the product, and then try printing again.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

Mp830 5200 error how to fix


Hi, this error code 5200 indicates that one of the cartridges is having problem with it's print head. You need to replace it, but first you need to find which one. For best solution, we need a set of new cartridges so that there'd be no problem testing.
Let's begin like this;
Remove all the old cartridges, Turn off the printer, disconnect the all the cables including power cord and ethernet cable (if any), leave it Off for few minutes and again turn it on after connecting the power cord. Now install all the new cartridges and check if the error message is still there or not (Hope it's gone, but you need to find out the culprit from among the old ones so that you can use those that are functioning properly).

Now remove one for example yellow and install the old yellow and check the message, if it's ok, go on replacing with the corresponding old cartridges after removing the newly installed, and so and find out the cartridge which is the creating this problem. After that, you'll be able to use the other remaining old cartridges.

This might be a problem for you if you don't have a new set of cartridges, but this is the best way, you can also use old working cartridges [those with no more inks].
This will definitely fix. I would also suggest you to clean the contact points on the cartridges and on the printer properly using soft brush/cotton dipped in alcohol/acetone/spirit.

Take care

My dell printer wont turn back


Power down the computer and the printer. Disconnect the printer cable from the computer. Disconnect the power cable on the printer for 30 seconds or so. Without connecting the printer back up to the computer, turn the computer back on as you normally would. It may come back to the screen that asks you if you want to start windows normally or in safe mode. Start windows normally if you do not know how it got to that point. Once windows is started then go back and go through your shutdown procedure and let the computer power down completely. Now reconnect the power to the printer, but not the cable to the computer. The printer should come back on. If it does not come back on standing alone not hooked to your computer then you have a power problem. If it does come back on (powers up). Then turn it back off and reconnect your printer cable back to the computer. Turn the printer back on first, then power your computer back on like before and let it cycle on until you get to your desktop. By this point everything should be on. Let me know how it goes ,but I believe by going through the cycling on and off of both units you'll get back to normal operation. From your posted problem this is the best solution I can give you. God bless.

could you try another cable, maybe the cable is the problem. If not, test the port if it detects other devices. If not disconnect the printer and install first the driver and then when it asks for the printer, hook it up.
