Hi,
Welcome to Just Answer ,My name isXXXXX will try to help you..

Do you use Windows 7 ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I have windows XP
Expert:  Sowrav D. replied 3 years ago.
Are you using an USB cable to connect the printer with the PC?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

What more info do you require to so that I can get the printer working

 

I have an enourmous back log of work to ge done tonight so would appreciate help

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No I just set up the printer plug it in and ran the disk

 

There was no USB cable in the printer box - sorry if I sound stupid but am not a great computer expert - just a home worker

Expert:  Sowrav D. replied 3 years ago.
Sorry I could not reply you due to some technical problem, if you do not have the USB cable, then how do you have connected the printer with the PC?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I connected with the disc provided with the printer and it shows on the computer that it appears to be connected - but does not print

 

There does not appear to have any way to connect a USB to the printer

 

My system is Microsoft XP Home

 

Sorry for delay in replying but have been sick

 

PLEASE ADVISE HOW MUCH LONGER I WILL HAVE TO

WAIT FOR AN ANSWER

Expert:  Sowrav D. replied 3 years ago.
Unless I am confirmed about the exact problem, I cannot provide you the solution, because it is not possible that a printer do not have the USB port on it, you may used the Wireless mode to connect the printer with the PC or laptop. So, please let me know, if you use a laptop or desktop .
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

 

I use a desktop computer

 

If I need to use a USB cable were would it be plug in on the printer - can not see relevant plug

Expert:  Sowrav D. replied 3 years ago.
I am giving you the picture of the rear view of the printer, where you will find the USB port of the printer.

1 - 20 Rear USB port2 - 21 Power connection. Use only the power cord supplied by HP.

These are the cables that are supplied with the printer, I don't why you have not received the USB cable for the printer.

Expert:  Sowrav D. replied 3 years ago.
USB cables are generally supplied with HP printers, if you have not got one, then you should contact the store for the cable, they should provide you a USB cable for the printer without any cost as the box packed cables is missing.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Thank you will phone XXXXX XXXXX in the morning to see if the can help - if they cannot suppjy one straight away what shoulf I do ??
Expert:  Sowrav D. replied 3 years ago.
If they do not provide you the cable, then you can buy it from any of your local computer store, then price is nearly £3. But remember to ask for printer usb cable otherwise if you buy a normal usb cable, then that will not help.
