I have an HP DeskJet 340.
I have a three-month-old Dell desktop running XP.
I can successfully print from WordPerfect.
I cannot successfully print from Word, WordPad, Final Draft, or Paint Shop Pro.
When I try to print from any of those programs the cartridge light comes on. I press that button, and the power light flashes for a moment, then goes back to the cartridge light. I then have to turn the printer off to reset. I turn it back on, and it prints pages of nonsense laid over the correct text.
What’s up? Do I need a new printer or what?
