Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Photosmart C4380 where do I start with installing this printer...? When I first purchased this printer, it took ages for me to try and figure out how to install it. I even got a new software disc and inlisted the help of the HP online support technicians. Although I managed to install it eventually, now and then I would loose the wireless connection and have to reinstall again. And then.... The neighbours kept logging on to my wireless network so I decided to put WEP security on my router. And then...I had to reinstall the software, where I reached the same problem as most people, where it states "Device could not be Installed properly". SO. I downloaded the Basic driver off the internet and that seemed to work (I got to 9/9 on the installation thing) and then It said "your device is not configured for wireless networking", (It has been wireless networking for the last six months). I have installed it via USB first, and then tried to add a device, but I keep going back to the page where you select either USB or network connection. I then tried connecting directly to the hpsetup through Wireless networks in my network connection. So I can print wirelessly, but only if I connect to the hpsetup network and not through my internet router (which is pointless). Please can you save my printer from being thrown out the window.

    Hi. I managed to Fix it myself!! So for anyone else who has a similar problem...
    So I ha installed vis USB. I left the software but deleted the actual printer from Printers and Scanners. I then connected to the HPSETUP network and then added a device. This worked although I could not print while connected to the internet. SO then I went to the start up page on the installation disc (well actually the start up page of the downloaded software because the disc doesn't work) I selected "Reconfigure network Settings" and voila! It picked up my wireless router and It now works!! I hope this is helpful to other owners of C4380's.

Delete the old installation and reinstall the printer again and do the reconfiguration for either USB or wireless. It worked for me when I did this. The scanner begins to work and no more 'no USB or wireless connection' msg anymore. :~)

Do you have a CD to install this printer? if you do go into MY COMPUTER where you can erase things and erase the printer and its system then shut computer off and restart then reinstall the printer using your CD to reinstall it. Some times you have to delete things and reinstall them to work.

Problem installing drivers for HP 4355 printer in vista 32bit OS


Vista OEM Cd usually doesnt come with drivers.

Printer should have come with its own cd which contains both the software & drivers.

If it didn't come with any
You can try using windows update
or
downloading drivers from hp site

Printer won't recognize cartridge


I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
