K5400 defective. Want to return.

Ralph Kallman, Amazon
31 October 2013
  • Summary: The K5400 I received was to be a replacement for my old K5400 which has a defective page feed. (I removed a paper jam and destroyed the paper feed, apparently. The new K5400 doesn't install, however. I use the downloaded driver, OJProK5X00_Basic_8_3, but I keep getting a screen: "Installing Officejet Pro K5300/5400 series ... Overall Progress- Checking System (Step 1/4) 28%" which stays on the screen indefinitely (several hours) with no further action.

Cheap shadow of what HP used to be

Daniel "Daniel", Amazon
27 October 2013
  • Summary: Printer is rarely used -- less than 500 pages per year. Owned printer for four years. Now print head has to be replaced. Further, the printer drinks ink.

Cheap printer with high maintenance cost

Reflection, Amazon
10 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this printer for its relatively high productivity feature even though I didn't print that much. The first one broke down and stopped printing within a week. The replacement printer, a few hundred pages later, needed a new printhead. Within months I went through 3 sets of color ink cartridges and two sets of printheads which cost a lot more than printer itself. It used up more ink to align and to selfclean printheads than to print documents.

Horrible

Travis, Amazon
27 November 2012
  • Summary: HP should stay out of the printer business. This is a prime example of poor R&D, and just pushing a product out to make a buck. Never had a good experience with an HP printer. I am in the IT field, so I have a lot of experience dealing with these buggers.

One star is still too many

bcomtom "bcomtom", Amazon
6 September 2011
  • Summary: Read the reviews below. I'm not sure what happened to HP consumer products. Not only are they now shoddy but HP assumes consumers are suckers: they'll pay anything for ink and accept any bad product.

After warranty expires- printer goes DOWNHILL

Seaview, Amazon
7 March 2011
  • Summary: Do not buy this printer. It worked fine for about a year then it started grabbing 2-3 pages at a time not to mention it jammed at least 1-2 times a week. I work for a company that uses some of the best grade paper so it can't be blamed on low quality paper. In fact, we bought 3 of these printers and the other 2 had so many problems, we just threw them in the dumpster after about 15 months.

Giving a CISS system one last chance to save it.

Lincoln County MT "Focused on pinecones", Amazon
2 October 2010
  • Summary: WOW just look at all the 1 star ratings? That says it pretty much...and they have expressed my frustrations well. Since the machine is almost worthless on ebay as a resale item, I thought I'd give it one more chance and invest in one of the CISS systems for bulk inks. Why not I figure it cost me more than yet another set of cartridges even the smaller ones. I live 90 miles from nearest store I can buy them at anyway or it's mail order.

"Printer stopped printing from computer after 6 months!"

drawr, CNET
26 July 2010
  • Pros: It came in a sturdy box for storage in the garage. I should dispose of the printer and use the box for something that works.
  • Cons: It worked for about 6 months. Then just quit working. I could run self tests but the printer would not work from any of 3 different computers. The lengthy install process always aborted at the same place. The new driver download did not work.
