Question about HP Deskjet 6980 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Wont print I got a wireless printer for my birthday. I have hooked it up ( supposedly ) according to the instructions. I've gotten all the proper lights to light and blink and all, but still nothing. Oh yea, when I looked in control panel, it had this printer " powered" by the usb, I changed it to COM1 thinking that my wireless router probably works out of COM1, Have I messed up horribly?

Got a canon pixma mg3250 wireless printer set it up as told put in cd rom seemed to have done everything i was supposed to but it wont print


A wifi printer needs to connect to your wifi network and it needs to be recognized by Windows.If your wifi network is already set up and working with other devices (tablets, smartphones, etc) , then you may be dealing with a simple security issue ( you may need to enter the proper passphrase, network key, etc.when you set up the printer) . If you do not have a wireless network already set up, then things get very complicated!!!

I recently purchased a Lenovo All in One wireless computer. I've plugged in the USB cable as per instructions but my X4650 printer will still not print.


Have you installed the printer drivers? Is the printer power turned on before plugging the USB cable into the computer? You could have a bad cable. Try a different cable.

Re boot the computer with ,( wired or wireless printer?), the printer cable in the USB port in the laptop/desktop, the windows version you have will ID the device and try to load a driver, or Go to printer in the start menu and ADD a PRINTER the software will search for the attached printer. OR use the software that came with the printer, load into the Dell and follow the instructions.

Photosmart D5069 InkJet Printer Wireless


Well...HP models that have network capability have an "N" at the end of the model number. often those that have built-in wireless have a "W" somewhere as well.

Yours does not....so you cannot print DIRECTLY to the printer via Wireless LAN. You CAN however, connect it via a USB cable to a PC that is on your Network, (you must have wireless access to this network already for this to work, if not, then you have a whole different problem that is another question=How do I add "wireless" to my Local Area Network-LAN.)

Once the printer is properly installed, then you need to SHARE it to others on your Network. How this is done varies with what operating system you have...you did not tell us.

I have problem with print-head for PGBK-5. On the test-print it does not appear as the pattern suppose to be (from the top) PGBK, C, C, M, M, Y, and BK. The pattern always appear C,C,M,M,Y and BK. I used...


if the clogging is worst then the deep head cleaning wont help.the head will need to be cleaned up manually and the waste ink pad in the printer should be cleaned too. this is covered normally in printer servicing.give special instructions to clean the head properly while you hand over the printer for servicing to any local tech. head cleaning and servicing will solve the issue
This will help. Thanks, please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Printer not printing


Assuming that your printer is hooked up properly and ready to print, then the problem could lie with the ink cartridge. You could try holding the printhead of the cartridge over the steam of your jug (using tongs), dab on some tissues and see if you can see ink on the tissue.This could clear the printhead and get you printing again

My printer wont print it keeps saying press enter to alein cartridge


I just noticed in the link to your forum item that additional text appears that does not appear in the item itself. It looks like you are getting a message telling you to press Enter to align your print carriage. This is a common step after you replace an ink cartridge. According to HP.com, here's what you are supposed to do:

"A message will appear in the front panel display requesting that the ink cartridges be aligned. Press Enter to start the cartridge alignment. Two pages will print. Following the instructions printed on the second page, place the first page on the scanner glass in the lower-right corner and then press Enter to finish aligning the cartridges. Remove the page from the scanner glass when complete".

The link to those instructions is as follows:

Replace the Print Cartridge

Just follow the instructions I posted above in italics and you should be good to go. Good luck.
