Go out to hp.com support - downloads and check what they have for your 8250, there will probably be one to correct your problem, I use hp exclusively and have updated all my software and drivers recently.

I have a Lexmark X1240 that I have tried to use the scanner (never used but 1 time-it was too slow) NOW i can find my manual & don't know how to use it. HELP! I can print, but not scan from it!...


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print/scan again.

Doesn't start


Try doing this steps to your printer:
1. Verify that the unit is switched on. Unplug the all-in-one from power.
2. Wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug in the power cable only.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times.
5. On the third time after plugging the unit into power and check the functionality.

Hope that helps.........

Says printer offline


1.check the printer power supply.And make sure that the printer is turn on.
. click on start - select control panel
. open printer and fax folder
. after open printer folder right click on the printer icon and select printer online option.

If it will not work then followed the below action plan.

2. Your printer is not communicating with the Operating System.
First uninstall the printer. ( Make sure you have the printer driver disk )

Make sure the printer is OFF and disconnect the power lead to your desktop or laptop.

Leave the computer OFF for 2 to 3 minutes. I actually mean turn it off and disconnect your power cord to the computer. That will clear everything.

Plug in and on your computer and let it boot up. When its fully booted, click START / SETTINGS / PRINTERS and FAXes and click ADD A PRINTER.

Follow the instructions and have the appropriate driver disk or files on your computer to complete the installation.

Remember, most installations require the printer NOT be powered up or connected while you load the drivers. That is normally the last step and the driver loading will prompt you to turn on the power and make the connections.

Then you probably will have to reboot and voila, you're done.

HP 3330 Scanner is very slow


PDF files are notoriously slow to print. You might invest in more printer memory.

Laser jet 2430tn printing slow


Check the way your print Jobs Spool up in your PC. you may have a totally different set up for printing in your new computer that takes two or three extra steps(such as spooling the print job) prior to actually sending it to the printer to be printed. If you have a user manual for your new computer, check the printer set up and see if it is set up to print directly to printer or print to spooling folder then to printer. Also try a different driver if you wish, I know the 2430 can use either PCL5 or PCL6 drivers... I'd start there and see if there is a difference.... the problem isn't your printer obviously its the way your computer is communicating to it. Best of luck to you.

Konica Minolta PagePro 1350W low print speed


Jacques,

Print speeds will vary based on a lot of factors. First thing to note is that your printer should have a first print time of about 20 seconds. This means the first page should take about 20 seconds before it starts printing and than will print at rated engine speed.

Secondly, depending on the type of paper and thickness your speed may slow down. Most printers will slow down for a thicker paper. In general the thicker the paper the more time it needs for the toner to fuse or melt to the paper.

The size of the paper will also greatly affect the speed too. Manufacturers spec their machines to letter size in the portrait orientation (the leading edge is the 11 inch or long side). In general for legal you will have a 15 to 20% reduction in speed and for 11 x 17 you can have as much as a 40% or more reduction in speed.

Print resolution may affect the speed. Usually most printers will print faster in a draft mode. This may also reduce the amount of toner used.

How do you connect to your printer? Different cables all have different speeds. For that matter is there an upgrade to the RAM? This could also change the speed of the print job. However these should not affect the final speed too much.

So to get the "rated" speed of your printer you will need to use standard letter paper with the long edge leading. Remember don't use thick paper and use a draft mode or lower resolution if possible to get the best speed.

I hope this helps.
