Printer keeps saying busy printing another document


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

I MOVED RECENTLY AND DID NOT TAKE THE PRINTHEAD OUT OF MY PHASE.iT WILL PRINT A TEST PAGE BUT WILL NOT PRINT FROM MY COMPUTER WHEN COMMANDED TO. HOW DO I CORRECT THIS.


If the test page prints correctly this suggests the problem is not with the printer but with communication to the printer. Be sure to check connections.

You did not say how your printer is connected to your computer.

You may want to review page 20 of the Setup Guide which describes your various connection options. If connections appear ok you may want to disconnect your printer, delete your printer from the printer menu, power down, reconnect the printer and then power up your computer to see if recognizes the printer as a new device and proceeds through the install. You may need to use the Add a printer function if it is not recognized.

Hopefully this helps resolve your issue.

I've encountered an Incorrect Yellow message upon turning on the printer HP2820


The printer would only display messages of functions commonly as ink shortages. For example, color printers with encountering ink shortge would display a message. However, continuing to print would produce least impressive cooration where for multicolored characters tend to appear in yellow. Also, printers with ink malfunctions require inspection of cartridges, ribbons, and compartments for mal alllignments. Readjusting the ink compartments would request performing test print sheets as reallignment check. At which situation, a continued malfunction would be detected as diagnosable by computer popup messages. Refer to the printer user guide. Good luck

I've plugged in my usb from my printer and set itbut my printer is saying that there is no computer connection


Is the power on both the computer and the printer?
Try other usb ports on the computer, in case one of the usb ports is not functioning correctly from a hardware point of view.
Usually, on hp printers, if you plug it in, it will be recognized by the Windows 7 computer.

What operating system are you using? 7, Vista, XP?

Also, do you have automatic updates enabled for your operating system?

USB port problems with hp printer


There are few things to remember using USB.
  • If your System is in hybernation mode, don't remove any attached USB device, because it will damage your USB driver. This is one of the known problem from microsoft.
  • If you have to remove any USB device use 'Safely Remove Hardware'.

To remove currepted USB drivers its not enough to remove your printer drivers.
  1. You should un-install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' from Device Manager.
  2. Then re-boot to clean registry.
  3. Install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' using XP Setup CD.
  4. Then check the Mass storage, PDA etc, it should recognized by XP.
  5. Then install printer driver (don't attach printer to system untill setup finish or setup says to connect).

I think it will fix.
Please let me know your feed-back.

Thanks
Iqbal
