Hp Deskjet 940c Issues


Hp deskjet 940c - grinding noises from print cartridge cradle. I have a hewlett packard deskjet 940c printer, which has normally worked very well. However, it is not currently working as it should; when i send a document to it, the printer recognizes it, and prepares the cartridge cradle to move. However, the preparation "noises" are much louder than usual now, and after moving about a centimeter or two away from the idle position, the cradle stops, and all three lights flash erratically on their own accord. When any button is pressed, they then flash once every second, all together this time. The printer then does not respond - the only way to power down is to cut the power from the wall. When turned on again, it is absolutely fine - until you send another document to it!

Hp Deskjet F4280 Streaking

Its got lots of white streaks, color works fine though. Tried lots of advice, banged the black cartridge down on a wet sheet of paper, this opened it up (formerly it wouldn't print black at all)

I heard i had to "reset manually" to get the streaking to stop, but no information on how thats done (i tried unplugging it for 30 seconds)

Hp Deskjet F4280 Problem

I need help connecting my hp deskjet f4280. I have tried everything hp suggests. ? The printer is brand new out of the box. When i install the software my computer will not recognize the printer "no hp devices detected". I've tried just about every option in terms of when to connect the usb cable including installing the software completely then trying to add a new device. The hp website suggested steps like uninstalling the software, performing a disk-cleanup, turning off background programs, making sure specific drivers are working, and rebooting the printer and i've tried them all. On every occasion when i attach the usb cable a sound i've never heard plays. It's not he usual usb tone when you attach hardware, it's quick mono-tones. Not sure how to get around that.

Hp Deskjet F4400 Not Working

I bought an hp deskjet 4400 printer, scanner etc. Great features, great price - but it doesn't work. Using microsoft 7, half the time i click on "print", in any application, nothing happens. Four times out of five when something does happen, the paper feed whirls for a while, then stops, and - nothing happens. Is this what i can expect for something that cost less than $100? What is a reliable printer?

Hp Deskjet F4400 Not Printing

Every thing is hooked up and ready to use. The scanner works, the fax works, i can even make copies, its just, my printers not working. If i can scan onto my computer then that means that the device must be installed properly. I've already re-installed the device twice. I ever brought it back and got a new one. I just cant print! Printer type - hp deskjet f4400 series. I have a research project due, and everything is saved onto my computer, but it doesn't matter if i cant print it out for presentation.

Hp Deskjet Scanner Is Stuck

My scanner has stopped a few times once it reached the end of it's track but it managed to recover after a power down and a re-scan . This time it stopped in the same place and i can't get it to move anymore. I took it apart as far as i could go, i have the right screwdriver set for the crazy foreign screws but the china men put 'em down so far i can't reach them with my screwdriver. Even if i could open it up would i be able to fix this problem for good or is it time to buy a new one?

Hp Deskjet Installer Error

I'm having problems trying to install the driver for an hp deskjet 842c printer on my home desktop/pc windows xp pro home computer. Every time i reboot my computer, i get the following error message "hp deskjet 840c installer error. Unable to create hpztbx04.exe shortcut, file not found. The rpc server is unavailable. " Can anyone tell me what this error message means & how to fix it? I've already downloaded my printer's hp deskjet 840c series installation drivers, only to get a similar message. " Unable to create hpztbx04.exe shortcut, file not found". I've uninstalled & re-installed the driver, with the same error message. I've unplugged & securely/firmly plugged the printers cables from the printer itself & back of the pc, with the same error message. Has anyone experienced this error message? How do i fix it? Is it the printer that's going bad, the computer or the rpc server? I checked that the rpc server was on, under services. Msc. And to my surprise, the rpc server has always been on. But the error message i get is that the printer hardware was detected, but unable to install the driver because the rpc server was off or unavailable.
