Hewlett-Packard Officejet Printer
After purchasing your HP Officejet Printer, you need to install it. Installing involves connecting the printer to the computer and installing the drivers to the printer. As it supports all versions of Windows operating system, compatibility is not an issue with the HP Officejet Printer.
To get the printer started, you need to attach the cable of the printer to your PC. After attaching the printer to your computer, make sure that the printer is switched on. After that you need to install the software or programs that are required to manage the printer so that you may get printouts of your documents and photographs. HP has an installation wizard feature that guides you through the printer installation process. To get your HP printer installed, along with its associated driver files, you just have to select the location where you want the drivers to be installed.
After installation, you need to maintain your HP Deskjet Printer. Generally these printers are relatively easy to maintain. Most problems with the printer are common and can be fixed easily.
If your printer is not able to recognize the PC, then ensure that drivers are installed properly. Try to reinstall the drivers from the disc. You can also download print drivers from HP’s website.
- Driver Conflict
- Cable Problems
- Paper Jam
- Slow Printing
If your printer is not able to recognize the PC, then you have to check the software that came with it, and then install the drivers that came with it. If you are not able to find the CD, then you can easily download print drivers from printer manufacturer’s website.
Cables are one of the most common issues with the printer. Your cable should be at optimum distance from your PC or it may hamper the communication between the PC and the printer.
Paper jams are usually obvious, but sometimes you may face a situation when there is no indication that the paper has jammed up the printer, in that case, open it up and visually inspect it to take out the jammed paper.
This problem arises when the heads of the printer are dirty. In that case you have to take out the printer cartridges, and using a Q-tip, you have to clean off the grime by gently rubbing the alcohol on the print head.
