HP DeskJet 3700 is a multifunctional printer that is designed for families and other home users who want a machine that is capable of printing everything from documents to web pages. It has support for wired and wireless connections and provides seamless connectivity options for mobile users (Mopria, Apple AirPrint, HP Smart app). So, with the help of wireless capabilities, you can print with your network devices without the need for a wired connection (USB 2.0 cable). However, the printer provides so many features. Still, it is a machine and can misbehave at times. In the below segments, we will discuss the troubleshooting methods that can help you get rid of the HP DeskJet 3700 not printing issue.
Note: HP recommends using a genuine HP ink cartridge for the proper functioning of the printer.
Note: Cleaning the printhead will clear a lot of printer issues but will require a lot of ink. Tip: Do not turn off the printer during the cleaning cycle; doing so will cause permanent damage to the printer.
The “not printing” problem usually occurs when a user keeps on clicking the Print button even when there are several issues such as the paper jam, the printer runs out of paper, ink cartridge problem, etc., which leads to printer queue as Windows keeps on storing each command from the user. Apart from this, a non-reliable data cable can fill up your printer queue with documents as well.
If you don't prefer the previous method, you can still clear the printer queue with the help of the command prompt.
So, these are some of the simplest troubleshooting methods through which you can fix the HP DeskJet 3700 not printing issue. If you want to know other troubleshooting methods, call our technicians, who are capable of handling all kinds of printer issues.
