The only serviceable part of this printer is the ink cartridges which includes the print heads. The error is cause by a clogged or defective ink cartridge head. You can retract the cartridges and clean the head with a soft tissue, an 70% alcohol can be of help to loosen the inks. Reinstall the cartridges and test. If error is still there, replace cartridges with new one.
Good luck.

Prints half page


Printing half a page with an Inkjet machine is not normally a computer issue. So windows 10 would not normally have any effect on the printing for a printer that has been accepted by the Windows 10 Operating System. If there was an issue in the software it would be printing gibberish or not printing at all.

Printing half a page is quite possably something stuck in the printer stopping the ink from getting to that half a page if it is printing down once side but not the other.
Printing half a page being that the top half is printed but not the bottom half (Or the other way around) it could be an air bubble in the feed line which can be cleared with a printhead clean or two.
Printing half a line rather than a full line such as the top half of each letter is clear but the bottom half of each letter is not visable is a blocked printhead. A couple of printhead cleans can also fix this.
Also check to see if the printer is not confused and actually has empty cartridges even if the printer thinks they are full. Brother printers can easily get confused about ink levels. If the cartridges are actually empty, replace them and away it should go again.

Hope that helps

I have a printer HP DJ 5940 and i have a problem with my connection. in status the printer says ready but when i try to printtest page says test page faild to print and i can't print. Any idea Manolis


Please follow exactly and IN ORDER.

1. Turn off the printer and wait 10 seconds. Turn it on again

2. Let the printer print the test page.

3. After the test page is printed, disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer to your computer. DO NOT turn off the printer while disconnecting the USB cable.

4. Place the test page on the scanner glass and press the SCAN button on the printer. The ON light will flash as the page is being scanned.

5. Remove the test page when the ON light is steady.

6. Finally, turn off the printer and wait another 10 seconds. Then turn it on again. No more printing test pages! Yay!

HP 5940: Can't clean print nozzles- the services facility is not installed but downloading drivers from net doesn't fix this. What next?


You can download the entire contents of your original installation CD from HP's site, look for it.
Also, try removing the cartridges and set the print head in household ammonia for 15-20 minutes, then blot on absorbent paper towels (don't scrub, it may pick up fibers) until you see that the printing surface of the cartridge is bleeding well.

A teacher in our building has an HP 5940 and continuously gets a Maintenance Tip message about cleaning her printer. We have tried numerous things but can't seem to get the message to stop popping up...


You have to go through the user manual and there is a procedure to turn the message off. It comes on after an x amount of pages have been printed. If you do not have a manual contact hp.com or retrevo.com to get one online free. God bless.

L7780 won't print on edge of paper


it could be the printer settings. Before you actually print something go to File>print:- and then choose properties, click on advanced and ensure that the correct paper and size is set to how you want it.

Nor printing


Go to http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00453087.pdf which is the HP online manual for this printer. Open it and go to page 92. Follow the recommended troubleshooting steps carefully.
Note: It is likely that the cartridge you installed is "dry". Or (and this one is no fun) the cartridge you purchased is not compatible with the 5940. Does the left-side panel of the wrapper carton have a listing of "5940" under the paragraph HP Deskjet ?

Also, if you purchased a store-refilled or store-recycled cartridge, it may not work. I had this happen once with a refill. Sorry, but you'll have to dispose of the recycled cartridge and purchase the reall HP deal.

Deskjet 1540 changes color from black to red


There could be two reason for the issue. One if you refill cartridges then that could cause the problem. Second your cartridge might be running low. Please reply or let me know if this help. Change your cartridges.

Thanks
