Hewlett Packard Deskjet 697C printer. Error messages of "printer is not ready" or "must load paper".
This started after replacing ink cartridges. Tried disconnecting, turning computer off, back on, & reconnecting cable. Help! I need to do resumes!
* use the replace cartridge maintenance of your printer. try to remove again and re-insert the cartridge, make sure you properly follow the procedures and the cartridge is place on right.
* look for jam paper also inside the printer. push the feed button.
* if your using Windows XP, go to your Control Panel, then Printer and Faxes, and look for your printer device name. right-click on it and check Set as Default Printer if is not. and right-lick again look and click for Use Printer Online if you see one. uncheck also if you see Paused Printing checked. You can also tweak the Printing Preferences... menu.
I'll gladly help in any way I can

The Copier Scanner is failing to initialize or find home position. The printer will have to have the Scanner replaced by an Authorized Hewlett Packard repair facility. The printer may at times "freeze" or "hang".

Paper mismatch errors occur because the product scans the width of the envelope before printing. If the paper size setting in the printer driver does not match the paper actually loaded in the product, the product reports a 'Paper Mismatch' error.
The message saves paper and ink by preventing print jobs from accidentally printing on the wrong paper. For example, the print job might be for a 101.6 x 152.4 mm (4 x 6 inch) photo, but there is letter-size paper loaded in the product. The error message displays to make sure that ink is not wasted on the wrong paper type.
