Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Hey there, So i recently purchased a HP DESK JET F2280 ALL-IN-ONE. Although the user manual guide doesn't give exact specific instructions on how to use install this printer but I put in the CD. The install screen came on and after going through the instructions I let the program install. at one point during the installation, it asked me to connect the printer via power adapter and the USB cable. on doing so, a bubble on the bottom right hand corner appeared which said that the computer detected new hardware and opened up the wizard where the new hardware had to be installed from. whereas the hp install window continued till about step four and then became still. While on the wizard, it got directed to installing the software when I clicked on it it searched for a while and returned with the message that the software cannot be installed and I can go back and point out the location. on going back and giving the specific location that is of the CD, the wizard still showed an error " the class installer registry entry is unavailable". on continuing installation the icons and everything installs but when I try to open the HP solution center it doesn't open rendering the printer useless. I have windows XP, service pack 2 and I use Mozilla Firefox Kindly help on the above issue

Most likely the Software/Driver disc that came with your unit is corrupted. Uninstall the currently installed drivers and try to use the following direct links from their site:

Hp deskjet f2280 paper jam but the catridge is not moving what to do

I downloaded the User guide from HP
It gives very simple instructions for removing the rear access door (push the door to the right and pull out). I found a torn corner of crumpled paper in there. It also warns against pulling paper out the front which can damage the print mechanism.

Problem with hp deskjet 3920

If your printer connects to your PC with a USB cable, there is a specific sequence. Some setup programs want the USB cable connected after the driver is installed, others want it connected first. Try reinstalling the driver and pay close attention to the setup instructions.

Recently, I purchased a HP Pavilion PC. After setting up the computer I found out that there is not a slot for my printer. My printer is an HP Lazer Jet 3200. Please let me know what I can to so that...


The LaserJet 3200 has 2 different available connections...a parallel cable connection and a USB connection. If you used the parallel connection previously, you will need to purchase a USB cable if your new computer doesn't have a parallel port.

The 2 different connections are shown beginning on page 31 of the user guide.

Here is a link to the user guide if you do not have it:

LaserJet 3200 User Guide

Any questions, just comment back.
