Question about HP DeskJet 6122 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Random foreign characters when printing

White box (MSI mobo)
Windows: XP SP2 fully patched
512MB DDR

I believe every single HP Deskjet series printer I've ever worked with has had this problem. Sometimes uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers fixes the problem, sometimes it doesn't.

If you don't already recognize the problem from the subject line then you probably don't know what I'm talking about. I've tried simply uninstalling/reinstalling the device to no avail. I've also tried switching from the parallel interface to USB with no luck.

Apparently the user is able to hold the power button down until the rest of the lights quit flashing, then it will print the job without incident.

I hear HP has a new universal print driver available that I've yet to try. I downloaded the driver from HP's website under the assumption (possibly bad assumption) that the drivers they would have available would be the latest. That could be false as well.

What say you interwibble?

Printing random characters


Hi there

This I think is the driver, best to remove the printer driver off the PC close down, and restart again then reinstall the printer driver back to your pc.

HP Photosmart c4280 Unwanted Output


I know that it sounds simple. But have you turned the printer off and back on. I have had a LOT of HPs start printing jibberish, and turning them off and back on is the only thing to fix.
I know it sounds like an obvious thing to try, and I don't mean to insult anyone's intelligence. But you'd be surprised how many people don't try that. They reinstall their driver, and reboot their computer, but never turn the printer off and back on.

Trying to install HP Deskjet 712c on computer with windows xp


You shouldn't need any software to print to this printer under XP, just let XP find the best or closest match to your printer and install it. It might be a Deskjet 700 or something but it'll work as a printer. The old software was probably for Windows 98.

HP Deskjet 6540 Alignment


Yeah, the only thing that can cause this is paper feed problems.

There must be either something loose in the paper feed mech (look for wobbling "tires") or there is still some paper or other foreign debris in the paper feed path.

HP deskjet 1120c professional serias printer


I have the same Printer and it works great in Windows XP Pro, so maybe you need to check their website for updated printer drivers...? My Printer is the HP Deskjet 1120C Professional Series Printer, that's the full name so I guess its the same printer...can print up to 13x19 inches....I've used the heck out of mine and it just now developed a problem where it won't pull the paper in from the front, but believe it or not I can load one sheet at a time from the back....
