Add memory to the machine and it should resolve your issues. The 2840 comes with 96MB built-in and has one slot open for additional memory located under the right side cover. It can take a max of 224MB total. I would recommend adding a 128MB memory card to max out the machine. It takes 100 pin, 133MHz, SDRAM.

Don't by it from HP as they list it at $500.00 or so. Buy the clone memory for around $25.00 for 128MB.

Here's a link to source the memory:

Hope that helps you.

I am getting page to complex to print for documents that were printing previously


After using this printer for two years with high speed USB turned on, I began getting the same error message. It is not a memory issue.

The solution was to get into the machine menu and turn off high speed USB. I can only assume that HP broke something with a firmware update.

How to turn off High Speed USB.

Push the Menu button on the printer. Scroll over to the "Service" menu. Push "Enter". Scroll to High Speed USB, push "enter". Turn High Speed USB "OFF". It fixes it but makes everything sloooow.

HP no longer manufactures or supports this machine and I have been unable to get Windows 7 software other than the generic universal driver.

This will be my last HP. It has been a good machine but HP software sucks!

2840 printer -- can't print because document is


Basically it is telling you it doesn't have the memory required to process the page (usually because of graphics). If this is the case, you can try setting the resolution in the print driver to a lower setting (sometimes referred to as quality) so that the memory can handle the graphics.

HP officejet d135 delayed printing


Both the printer and the computer are machines and it solely depends upon the speed of the computer as to in how much time thye data is transmitted to the prinetr to print. Check the speed of the processor, RAM,USB port(if connected with usb cable), length of the usb cable /ethernet cable, distance of the router from the computer and the printer, size of the dcument/image.
