Printer problem with HP 895Cse

by raduran / April 8, 2006 12:47 PM PDT

I have an HP895Cse printer, OS WIN XP. The printer top right bottom button light is blinking and I can't print. However, i do not see any paper jam. I went to the HP website and install the latest driver, no luck.

Similar 895cse & XP problem
by supafudge2003 / April 22, 2006 11:49 AM PDT

I have a similar problem. The printer works fine with WIN 98SE, but not with XP SP2. I have tried debugging this with HP support without success.

XP recognizes the USB connected printer, and loads the correct driver. On hitting print, a page feeds, and the print heads make a single pass. Things then hang. The document waits in the print queue. HP support suggested trying the generic 550 driver, but that didn't help.

Could this be a timing problem? I moved the printer from a 450 MHz P3 to a 2.8 GHZ P4. I would expect a properly written driver to provide correct flow control.

Disconnect the printer from the PC. Then try printing a sample page by holding down the "Resume" button until the printer starts printing and then release the "Resume" button. If the sample page prints, then try updating your USB chipset drivers, older drivers will sometimes cause printing problems when using USB. Also try using the printer with a parallel cable, instead of USB. If the light you are talking about is the light below the power button, then the printer is receiving data and then hanging up. It may be a problem with a bad USB cable.
