Question about HP DeskJet 670c InkJet Printer
The printer is several years old but always performed atho slowly at times. It worked yesterday. Today, it is spitting out sheet after sheet with one line of gibberish. I disconnected and reconnected more than once. The cartridges are new. I tried to follow the troubleshoot instructionsin the brochure but of course, there was no XP at that time. HP will not help or support this old model. There is no notification on the screen when I begin the process but the yellow light begins flashing immediately. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Here's a few steps to make sure that it's working. 1. If the printer is indeed working, turn it off, disconnect from the printer, and then turn it on. Once on, hold the "resume" button for a few seconds and it should print a self test page. 2. Clean the printer by turning the printer on. Press and hold the POWER button. Press the RESUME button seven times. Release the POWER button. 3. Then there's running a diagnostic-test, of which, there are 2 ways: Regular: Turn the printer on. Press and hold the POWER button. Press the RESUME button five times. Release the POWER button. Extended: Turn the printer on. Press and hold the POWER button. Press the RESUME button twelve times. Release the POWER button. I've been reading up a lot about this problem and it seems that maybe 1 out of 10 people can actually get this to work on XP. There are no additional drivers available for this printer other than the ones that come available with hte installation CD. It's HP's way of telling you to buy another one of there printers...
