Hi. Try pulling the ink cartridges out of the printer, turn printer off, then on again. When asked for ink cartridges, insert only one at a time.

SOURCE: I cannot get HP C6200

Sorry - I didn't read this closely enough. You will not be able to print on 10x15 paper as the paper type is not supported by your printer.

This is a list from the specs of the supported paper sizes;

Supported paper sizes Letter, legal, executive, No. 10 envelopes, cards, borderless photo (4 x 6 in, 5 x 7 in, 8 x 10 in), borderless panorama (4 x 10 in, 4 x 11 in, 4 x 12 in)

Yes install the drivers you have but plug in the 4400 when it asks.

I have a f4480 hp deskjet. How do you reset settings when you refill the ink (black) cartridge? Because even after injecting the ink, I still get the exclamation mark and orange light. And when even...

Some Hp printers, like Epson, require the cartridge to be reset. There is a chip on the cartridge that needs resetting.
This might work;
Place the HP 60 cartridge on a covered surface so that the metal contacts on the cartridge are facing you. Put tape over the top metal contact in the second column from the left-hand side, making sure the other contacts do not get covered. Put the HP 60 cartridge back into the HP printer. Print a test page when prompted. Take the cartridge out of the printer. Leave the tape on the contact that is already covered and also cover the top contact in the column at the far right, making sure no other contact gets covered in the process. Return the cartridge to the printer again. Print a test page. Remove the cartridge from the printer again, remove the tape from the metal contacts, and return the cartridge to the printer. Print the test page and the printer should read the cartridge as full.

We just bought an f4480 jet printer. Should the printer turn on automatically when printing from the computer?

Auto power on is an option in the printer properties window, The default is off and you have to change it yourself if you want that option.

HP 9670 printer head not moving

See my advice would be that if your printer is in warranty then call up HP Total care as u will get a replacement if the issue is not fixed over the phone. But if the machine is Out of warranty, then you can try the following: Make sure the printer is connected directly to the wall socket(No Porwe Surge or anything). 1) Power Drain: Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer, then press & ho;d the power key for 30 seconds, then release the key & plug in the power cable back. Check if the problem is resolved. If Not
2) Partial reset: Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer again. Press and hold the # and 3 keys together and while holding them plug the power cord back in. Check if the problem is resolved. If Not
3) Semifull reset: Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer again. Press and hold the # and 6 keys together and while holding them plug the power cord back in. Check if the problem is resolved. hope fully the problem will be fixed by this. Please let me know
If still the same problem arises then ur printer may just need a replacement
