My HP 6830 printer has worked fine before.
I just installed a new set of ink cartiages, now it will only print test messages, but not print from print e-mail messages.
Also it will not scan anymore.

Thank you. And would you like me to try and guide you through the repair process by written communication? Or would you prefer to have me connect and fix the issue directly via a secure remote ( screen sharing ) session. Thank you for your reply, Dustin S.

Ok, first click the start button on your computer, then click devices and printers. Then, right click and delete any copy of your hp 6840 printer. Once deleted.. Go to this link next and download t he full featured software and driver package Once downloaded, open that package and run it.. This will reinstall the printer and its software. Once complete, try to print again. If its still not working let me know, and if it is working please remember to return here and click and submit a rating to show that I was able to assist you.

My apologies for the delay in getting back to you, by the time you responded over an hour later, it was well past the end of my shift. Im sending this message before I turn in for the night.. It might be best if we connect via a secure remote session so I can fix this issue in person. If that something youd like to try, I will be working from 11 am till 8 pm Monday through Friday.
