Question about Apple HP DeskJet 840c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have an HP 840c and running it with Windows XP and SP2. My problem is that I find it only prints part of a page it is an intermittent fault and seems to happen whichever program I use. Print a 20 page document and 2 pages will only be partially printed. I have stopped the spooliong but that has made no difference. I tried contacting HP but all their advice came to naught - is it the printer which needs replacing or is it a PC fault - Any help welcome

Mr.old..

I have the same printer and I've suffered this problem before,

I solved mine by replacing the ink cartridge

I used to clean the head using a smooth piece of cloth and hot water " real hot water"

that used to solve the proplem periodically and when I replaced the couple of cartridges the problem was solved totally.

If this did not work for you then try to replce the cartridge capint it selfe

if this did not work for you then try to replace the main board 'the mother board"

if this did not work for you then try to replace the whole printer.

if this did not work for you then try to replace the computer itself

if this did not work for you then try to replace the place you live in 

if this did not work for you then try to replace the planet.

and good luck.

I have notebook Compaq 6715b with Windows XP (no SP2). Sound doesnt work. drivers from HP official site not working


Hello,

trust me, the fault is from the win xp SP2. I am saying this with confidence and out of experience. Except if the audio drivers you downloaded is for win vista.

While running the Win xp, some files make have skipped/not installed which is making the sound not to work. Or maybe you have initially installed a wrong audio driver.

To solve this problem. you have to re-run the win xp, if possible, use another xp Cd, maybe not Sp2.

After installation, let the audio driver be the fist thing you install.

Take care.

No there isn't that's the biggest problem with Win 7. DRIVERS.. if they aren't expressly written for Win 7. Then it is all just one big headache. In saying that sometimes installing as Admin, & in XP SP2 Compatibility Mode, helps.

The printer is not printing even wen d cartridge is full and driv


well writen- if all is as you say that just leaves the drivers for your printer...
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=59868&
go to this page and select your operating system (win XP- Vistia) then save the drivers to desktop.
Now- disconnect your printer from your computer and don't reconnect until you are instructed to do so. OK-run your printer drivers and follow directions-connect when told to-
And that should do it.
Please leave for me a rating...

1320 not printing all the time


Your USB cord may be too long, or you have too many USB devices running. Try removing any other USB device, except the printer and do a test print.
