MY HP DESKJET 6540 is not printing. Just hooked it up to a toshiba laptop with usb cable, laptop sees it, asked for installation cd---done---it added a new printer to control panel and lights are on the...


The first thing that I would look at is to make sure the printer is set as the default printer. This is done in "Printer and Devices" in WIN 7 and Via the Control panel ---> "Printers and Faxes" in Vista and XP.
The default printer will have a little check mark by its icon. If its not there, highlight the newly installed printer and right click with the mouse. Then select "Set as Default Printer".
If this does not work try restarting the machine with the printer attached. After the computer has completely loaded the OS, try again.
If this doesn't help re-post with more info.

This printer have a problem on HP circuit board. Usually its grounded due to ink waste, or not using it like what you said it took about three months. Here is a tip if your printer HP is still under warranty then you can send or contact to HP Center or the one you buy from it. To be sure that your printer is working back normally.
