    I put in the CD and begin the "Easy Installation" and get all the way to the end where it says "printer detected, please wait until the installation process is complete". Then after about three minutes it says "printer not detected".

    I've unplugged, replugged, started and restarted the printer and computer with the same issue happening over and over again. Toll free customer support is available Mon-Sat according to the quick start guide, but when I called (it's Saturday) it says they're closed and are open Monday-Friday only. Frustrating. This should be easy.

I have a deskjet 840c.i conect with my xp comp with usb cord but it is not runing.give some tips to start printer.

Before connecting the printer put the cd that came with the printer into cd/dvd drive. This is to install drivers for your printer. Follow the instructions that comes on the screen. If nothing comes on the screen then run setup.exe from the cd.

Connect the printer when asked to do so or only after installing the programe.(i.e. drivers). good luck
