HP DeskJet 300 Printer Fixes Are Available
As useful as the HP DeskJet 300 printer can be, there are often problems where you might struggle to get the printer running. These include such concerns as:
- Your printer not linking up to the computer
- Browser-related concerns
- Printer functions not working accordingly; this may be due to various commands being sent at one time
- Improper driver functionality; this could be due to the driver not being installed correctly
Some things can be done to get your HP DeskJet 300 printer back up the running. Let’s look at two of these points.
Using Your Printer As the Default Printer
In some cases, the DeskJet 300 printer is not listed as the default printer for a task. This could keep the driver from working accordingly.
In this case, you must use the following steps:
- Turn the printer off and see that the printer is ready to be used.
- Check on the Devices and Printers menu of your operating browser. Look for the original printer that you are trying to use.
- Look to see if the printer in question has a green mark on it. You would have to right-click that printer and choose to set it as your default printer if that printer does not work with this.
- Look at whether the printer has any active tasks that need to be handled. You might have to get the printer queue cleared up.
Reset The Printer
The second choice you have for fixing up your printer is to reset the unit and to review the connection that you are working with. You can use these steps:
- Reset the printer by turning it off and then back on.
- Check the printer status on your computer. The printer should be listed as being online.
- See that the printer has moved to an idle state. At this point, the printer should be functional and online.
- In some cases, the printer is still listed as being offline. If this is the case, remove the power cord from the side of the printer and then unplug the power cord on the wall.
- Wait for about a minute. While you are doing this, restart your computer’s operating system.
- Plug the power cord back in on both ends.
- Turn the power on to the printer. This is provided that the printer has not turned back on by itself after you plugged it in.
- Review the connection on your printer. The unit should be linked up to your system the right way.
- Open the wireless network menu to see what the signals are on your computer. If you have a wired link, you must check on how well the printer’s Ethernet port is working. The unit should be linked to the proper router. A green light should be noted. You may also find a blinking orange light on the router to show you that the setup is working.
