1st thing that you have to check is the connection of your printer and your computer. is it USB? or Wireless?
For USB installation follow this steps (note: this is general installtion for all HP printers)
For win xp operating system follow this link: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02283843&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3737195&key=null&site=null
For win vista operating system follow this link: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02283673&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3737195&key=null&site=null
For win 7 operating system Please follow this steps: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02282602&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3737195&key=null&site=null
now if your done installing all the software and you are using the usb cable to connect it to your computer, but now you want to change the connection using wireless (infrastructure) Follow this steps
The printer should be connected to the network first! (this step is for all printers that has a wrench button on the front panel)

  • press the wrench on the front panel
  • look for network/wireless menu
  • press ok
  • look for wireless setup wizard
  • press ok
  • it will search for available networks in your house
  • you need to select your network, then press ok
  • it will attempt to connect, then it should be connected
if the printer is connected to the network you should have the message "connected to the network"
If your printer is connected follow this steps:
  • go back to your computer
  • run the disc
  • click on "add a device" button
  • it will ask you to select the type of your connection
  • choose the wireless connection (802.11)
  • then just follow the steps on the installation wizard
  • you should be connected by now
If you cannot connect to the network, maybe this is an issue with your firewall (windows firewall or anti virus firewall) download this tool to check if the settings on your network: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=4063&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3737195#N795
download the Network diagnostic utility
Congrats in advance! :D

I have tried to adjust my squelch but all i hear is loud static in between transmissions


  • Hi, I can help.

  • If your getting transmissions then the receive is working.If your squelch is not adjusting out then it is possible your antenna, or the connector, is not working right. Hand held scanner antennas are the same across the board as for frequency use. The connector your antenna uses is a standard BNC connector. So your antenna is really universal which mean you don't have to go to Uniden and pay top dollar for their antenna.


  • Now it is possible the squelch knob is giving you trouble. but I would see if you can borrow an antenna just to try from anyone you know that has a hand held scanner. As long as their scanner works well with that antenna it should on yours too. If it don't then check the connector for the antenna on the scanner and make sure it is not loose. You can open the scanner and just eyeball the connections and make sure no soldier joints are not cold.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
Regards, Tony

I want to know how to connect my ssid pasphrase located on the back of my router and when i tried to conect it to my ps3 conole it said it was weak and it couldnt find the acess point or something so can...


i'm going to assume that you are asking "how to connect your ps3 to your home network?"
if your home is set up with wireless modem or router and your computers are connected wirelessly its pretty simple to set up. more likely you or someone who set it up probably set it up securely meaning with security key and password. So you do have to know few things about your home network. like what is the name of your home network (SSID). the security setting of your home network. and finally the password of your network. if you don't know these things about your home network you will not be able to get connected wirelessly. but if you do have these info on hand read along....

JUST MAKE SURE YOU DO HAVE A WIRELESS HOME NETWORK... it definitely wont work if you don't have a wireless setup and u are trying to connect wirelessly. people overlook this no brainer.

Turn on your ps3 and from the XMB...
1) go to Settings
2) Scroll down to Network Settings and press X
3) Scroll down to Internet Connection Setting and press X. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration"
5) wireless

from this point on you need to know few things about your network.....

6) scan -- once scanned it'll give you wirelss access point for you home network and some other near your home along with few information such as....
...SSID (which is what you set your network to be -- i.e. "the jones" or "linksys" or "summer home" or "my connection" etc etc) ...SECURITY (this is the password you set up your network with) ...SIGNAL STRENGHT (usually your network will be the strongest among your neighbors since you are closer to your router)
7) highlight your network and press x . (you should know what it is) selecting on the other network probably wont do you any good since it'll probably be all locked with password and such. yours should also be locked and have password on it too.
8) SSID which means service set identifier basically mean the name of your network. if your home network is set up with security and password your home network will not show up under SSID (this is one of the things you need to know about your home network. if you don't know ask the person who set up your home network)
9) on WLAN SECURITY SETTING page (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up) -- most people i deal with have a WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK security password. Yours may be different so choose the one that you used.
10) WPA KEY - which basically means password. input the password you used to set up your home network (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up)
**it'll give you "checking network configuration"
11) if you input all the correct info you should get the "setting list" screen
12) press "X" to save the setting
13) do the connection test and if all things were entered correctly you should have success.

all this seems complicated just reading but if you follow it step by step its easy. you just need to know the name of your home network, the home network setting, and the password of your home network.

on the other hand if you are setting up a wired connection it makes it a whole lot simpler. you don't need to know your network name, security key, and password.

make sure you have the ethernet cable plugged in to your ps3 and to your modem or router

1) go to Settings
2) Network Settings
3) Internet Connection Setting. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration"
5) wired
6) auto-detect
7) automatic -- for the IP address setting
8) do not set
8) automatic -- DNS setting
9) automatic -- MTU
10) do not set -- PROXY SERVER
11) ENABLE -- UPNP
save connection setting
test connection

if your home network is set up and u got the ps3 connected it should work

I WANT SHARE MY HP SCANJET SCANNER HP5590 ON LAN NETWORK , BUT I DONT KNOW HOW CAN I SHARE PLZ TELL ME SOON


This model scanner doesn't have any built-in way to connect to a network. You need to connect it to one of the wired ports on your router with a USB print server like this. The server provides the link between the scanner and your network so that it can be used by any connected computer.
