Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

1 Answer

Printer only prints rarely

HELP! I just bought (in May) a new Dell laptop and HP photosmart wireless printer and I have the verizon wireless internet card (don't know if that matters or not?). The Geek Squad installed my printer but it has only actually printed something a handful of times. I have taken it down to them twice to have it fixed. They say it is fixed and have even demonstrated it printing in the store for me. But when I get it home it won't print. I am so frustrated and need help because after numerous phone calls they will only help me if I pay a Geek $160 to come to my house to see why it works there but not here! Please help!

This is going to be with a setting, either on the printer or the laptop. It's most likely with the laptop, in that the wireless connection with the printer isn't there. Make sure that the laptop is recognizing or seeing the printer at all times. Check the software program for any type of sync setting between the two. The Geeks have a tenancy to forget that not everybody is as computer savy as they are and will do some minor little adjustment, like synchronizing, and not think to let that person know about it, or won't tell about it in order to get back in the pockets of the person. If you still can't get it to work, I suggest calling a small computer shop in your area, they treat you better and they'll be a whole lot cheaper. For example, I do house call trouble shooting in my area for $50 or less, depending on the situation.

    Also, use the help section in the printer software, there should be a troubleshooting section that will help.

HP Photosmart C4780 and Acer Aspire fight over web-based printing!


Try hard-wiring your laptop to the router with an ethernet cable as a test and then try printing, if you do not loose connection to the internet then the problem is probably that the printing is hogging your wireless bandwidth.
If the same thing happens with loosing connection to the internet try connecting to the internet real quick through another computer that is hardwired, you want to find out if the problem is a wireless one or that affects wired computers also. You might need a driver upgrade, you also might need to upgrade the firmware of the router

I bought my daughter an HP photosmart D110 Series printer for xmas. I set it up here at home using wireless, not USB, and it worked great. Now when she gets to her apartment which also has wireless, we...


start new,
use the D110 full setup instructions from scratch.
install the software from HP.
then on some printers, like mine, the USB way works or wifi
if you set it up to wifi , usb is dead.
and the reverse.
so must be reset , per the manual to get it the way you want.
it is a very complex device, this all in one e-printer

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Photosmart-e-All-in-One-Printer-series---D110/4023244

wifi, is complex.
first the user must know the routers settings to make it connect.
but some times you have no access to that router, due to owners
are ISP or landlord.
to use wifi , i must force my router to use a fixed IP (reserved)
or will not connect , reliably, the manual covers this too.
use the HP install package,

rule 2:
NOTE: If the printer is connected with a USB or Ethernet cable, the printer cannot connect wirelessly.

click does not maintain wireless....., seen here.

HP photosmart C5580 wireless printing problem


You laptop will not be able to connect to the printer using the bluetooth technology. But the good news is that you can use the printer thru your home network by having the desktop that the printer is connected to be part of the same home network that your laptop is part of and then share your printer on our desktop and then select it as a printer to use on your laptop.
This link has instructions for all of your home network instructions.
