paper feeder problem

LONG N., Newegg
10 March 2012
  • Summary: I would not buy this printer again.
  • Pros: easy wireless setup, ink has lasted so far, decent text printing, ok scanner, ok document feeder.
  • Cons: 1) paper input tray no longer works after 4 months!!! what is the point of having a wireless printer if you have to feed the paper by hand? 2) the HP scanner software is not functional. instead, for mac os x lion, I prefer using mac's native "image capture" app. it's still not perfect though, as ...

Caution...

Newegg
2 February 2012
  • Summary: When you buy refurbished you occassionally get a dud, the test is how the company stands behind it. I purchased the extended warranty with the printer. I called Newegg and was told it was past their return period and the service warranty didn't kick in until the mfr's warranty ran out.
  • Pros: Nice little printer...when it worked
  • Cons: It didn't work long.

User Review

Newegg
10 January 2012
  • Summary: it makes a nice paperweight
  • Pros: Fast delivery, looks new, as if it has never been opened. Great looking machine
  • Cons: Went through the step by step instructions. On the last step before it prints the test page it says (incompatible ink BLACK) I turned it off, checked the INK cartridge and tried to turn it back on and now It will not come on. No power at all.

A wireless printer that doesn't play well without wires

Anonymous, Newegg
20 November 2011
  • Summary: I don't know why people complain about the outdated drivers on cds. Download the drivers from their website, and opt-out of as much crapware as you can. This is the second HP I've had problems with (the other was a cheap one I bought last year around this time) and I won't be buying another HP.
  • Pros: It was easy to setup, and worked well for printing the few word docs I had to print.
  • Cons: Trying to print anything large ended in failure every single time. Only half of the document would get printed, and then the printer would halt and lockup. When connected via usb (or even ethernet) the printer worked well, if a bit slow.

A long line of disapointment

TYLER T., Newegg
27 July 2011
  • Summary: After dealing with the problems for 3 months, and only getting a total of 73 pages printed, I called HP support. I following tier 1's basic support and they too could see it was not fixable.
  • Pros: Great set of features at a great price. -Fast printing -Able to adjust ink usage in driver (on top of draft mode) - this kept down on ink usage -Networked Printing/Scanning -Auto Document Feeder -Basic Driver Package @ HP's website -HP's support
  • Cons: -The printer would not pick up the paper 50% of the time, depending on what mood it decided to be in. No amount of cleaning, hp utilities, or hp tech support documents could help. -Freezes on print jobs randomly. When the paper actually loads, the printer may just freeze on 'Printing...' with pap...
