    printing


    I recently asked a question about my printer not printing...I reinstalled drivers for my HP4000 series and I was able to print until I turned my printer off and when I turned it back on my printer only printed page 1 of 1 with no info. Does anyone know why the printer would not communicate with my computer. I am using windows 8

    • Are you connecting via Wi-Fi Or Cable
    • What Windows 8 Version are you running
    • What word proccessor are you using

    One other question - In your Printer Utilities, is it showing your ink levels? I have an HP Photosmart. I have to unplug it or my system does not boot - I plug it in when I see my User name and the rotating circle dots. It's because there are card slots on the printer and I basically have no empty drive letters left.

    Once in a while, it says the printer is there but it is not really connected. I think I just unplugged it and plugged it back in, then it started showing me ink levels.
