Question about HP DeskJet 6122 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer error I am running Firefox 3.0 but when I try to print onto my hp deskjet 6122 nothing happens. When I go to "control panel - printer" it just tells me "printer status - error" without specifying what the error is or how to fix it. ( There are no flashing lights on the printer to suggest a problem with paper feed, for example.) Any ideas on how to find out what the error might be and/or how to fix it?

Hi seton,

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software4/COL1674/dj-7515-3/6122_enu_win2k_xp.exe

that's the latest software and driver pack for your printer under xp. Uninstall the driver you have and install this. Even if you have the same driver loaded, at least it'll put the default settings back.
If you still have problems, try doing the same job in firefox 2, it might just be a bug in Mozilla's newest update..

Here's the manual for your printer anyway for future reference. It's a pdf so you can save it to your hard drive.

Good Luck with that :)

Server 2008 drivers for HP deskjet 6122


"Add a printer" in "My Computer"/"Printers" or "Control Panel"/"Printers". The 6122 will print from the HP 920, 930, 932, 940 & 950 drivers also - (which are included with many Windows systems). If you chose the 970 driver it will want a second sheet of paper to print a test page, which you can ignore and it will stop trying. All drivers seem to be the same print quality in my systems. I do not use the 970 or 6122 driver at all so I don't have an ink level monitor or any possible related potential glitch.

Try a different driver. "Add a printer" in "My Computer"/"Printers" or "Control Panel"/"Printers". The 6122 will print from the HP 920, 930, 932, 940 & 950 drivers also - (which are included with your Windows XP and Vista systems). All these drivers seem to be the same print quality in my systems.

HP 6122 nothing prints other than one or two lines of nonsense and it goes on and on one line per page


This might be a problem with the connection or corrupted file, try to cancel the print job and try again. -if your using USB connection try to unplug and replug the cable from the PC and the printer side.

My HP Inkjet 6122 has suddenly started printing color photos with stripes. I don't use it very often, only when I need color photos. I have replaced both the #45 black and #78 color cartridges with genuine...


Use the HP Printer Assistant software tools to run a "head-cleaning" cycle -- the problem is not with the ink (there is plenty of it) but with the print-heads (that **** the ink, and then spray it onto the paper). Some of the jets are clogged, and so you get "white-stripes".

I have a HP Deskjet 6122 Printer and I need a driver for Windows 7 that I can load on a flash driver to put on another computer


Windows: "Add a printer" in "My Computer"/"Printers" or "Control Panel"/"Printers". The 6122 will print from the HP 920, 930, 932, 940 & 950 drivers also - (which are resident/included with your Windows XP and Vista systems). If you chose the 970 driver it will want a second sheet of paper to print a test page, which you can ignore and it will stop trying. All drivers seem to be the same print quality in my systems. I do not use the 970 or 6122 driver at all so I don't have an ink level monitor or any possible related potential glitch. I wet and slap stubborn old ink cartridges to un-stick dry jets. sometimes I use a small clear silicone tube to suck a bit of ink to get them started as the jet holes need priming sometimes if they are old.

HP Deskjet 6122 print job queues but does not print


The printer issue is the "setup.ini" file.(notepad file) You have to add an entry for Windows XP under [SupportOS] list. You also have to add a file, and edit the hpf6122p.inf file to reflect the added file. Please contact me at: artb126@yahoo.com
