  • Printhead appears to be missing, not detected or incorrectly installed

    hp officejet 6699 won't print - gives message "printhead appears to be missing, not detected or incorrectly installed."   I have unplugged as instructed and that did not work.  I replaced all of the cartridges and that did not work.  It's over a year out of warranty and I don't know where to take it.  I didn't want to have to buy a new one just yet.  Is approx 2 years the life of an all-in-one now??   Can anyone tell me what to try?  Thanks!

    Hi pip3, Can you remember what you were doing when the error occured? Was there a specific event that triggered the message? Did you unplug the printer while it was switched on to reset it (documented here)? Please let me know if you resolve your issue, otherwise I will try to help you troubleshoot further. Many Thanks,Francheska

  • HP Officejet 6700 Premium - Error message: The printhead appears to be missing ...

    Our printer have worked fine for I think 18 months, but now I keep getting a message of "the printhead appears to be missing, not detected, orincorrectly installed".
    I have switched the machine on and off and I have reinstlalled the  ink cartrigeed and checked to make sure they were all installed correctly but still I am unable to print.
    Any suggestions?

    Hello @Utti , and welcome to the HP Forums!
    I see you're experiencing printhead issues.  I would like to try and help with that.
    I would recommend removing the ink cartridges from the printer, and performing a power reset.  Disconnect the power cord from the printer and the power outlet, then wait 60 seconds. After 60 seconds, plug the printer back in. Ensure you plug the printer directly to a wall outlet. Make sure to bypass any sort of surge protector or power bar.
    I would also suggest plugging the printer power into a different wall outlet.
    Another tool you can utilize would be this document on A 'Missing or Failed Printhead' Error Message Displays on the Printer or on the Computer.
    Good luck and please let me know the results of your troubleshooting steps. Thank you for posting on the HP Forums!

    new error message: "printhead appears to be missing, not detected, incorrectly installed or incompatible". I already tried restarting several times and have uninstalled and reinstalled all of the ink cartridges. Still receive same error mesage.

    Hey walter,

  • Blank error message with ? appears and PDF does not open in Browser (IE11) when clicking link to open pdf. PC - IE11 Acrobat 9.0

    Blank error message with ? appears and PDF does not open in Browser (IE11) when clicking link to open pdf. PC - IE11 Acrobat 9.0
    Cannot access in browser PDF files unless blank box is closed and then website address is clicked on again in browser address bar and page reloaded.
    Uninstalled Acrobat 9, reinstalled, still same problem.
    Help please!

    Yes I can it only happens in the browser..
    I reinstalled Windows on my machine and started over a couple of weeks ago.
    When my desktop started up I didn’t have Acrobat installed and clicked on a pdf file and the open with xxx dialogue box came open.
    I chose a different program as Acrobat wasn’t installed yet so it associated pdf files with another program.
    Later Installed Acrobat and couldn’t associate the pdf file with acrobat so I went into Folder Options and manually associated PDF files with Acrobat.
    Ever since then I get the error when something is downloaded and opened in the browser.
    Works fine everywhere else and when I cancel the blank error, highlight the web address and press enter to reload it works 90% of the time.
    Not sure what to do..

    After installing a new version of Firefox, I get the error message "The procedure entry point JS_GetOperationLimit could not be located in the dynamic link library js3250.dll" when I try to start firefox. Elsewhere in the forum a complete reinstall is suggested; however, I can't do that because of my company's IT policies. Is there any way to solve this problem WITHOUT a complete reinstall? Thank you!
    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened

    If you can't reinstall Firefox yourself then you need to contact your IT department and ask them to check the Firefox installation.
    It is possible that some files got broken with the latest update.

  • My problem is on my Windows PC.  I am getting the error message, "The procedure entry point sqlite_3_wal_checkpoint could not be located in the dynamic link library SQLite3.dll.  I am told this is related to iTunes.  Any help?

    I use both a Mac and a PC.  My problem is on my Windows 7 PC.  I am getting the error message, "The procedure entry point sqlite_3_wal_checkpoint could not be located in the dynamic link library SQLite3.dll.  I am told this is related to iTunes.  Any help out there?  Thanks

    With Windows Explorer, navigate to your C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support folder.
    Copy the SQLite3.dll that you should find there, navigate to the nearby Mobile Device Support folder, and Paste it in there also.
    Restart the programme all should be well
    In case that your OS is (64 bit)
    1. Open windows explorer, go to location C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support
    2. Copy file "SQLite3.dll"
    3. Now paste it in the folder  C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support
    4. Restart the programme, it should not display that message, it should be clear.
    Good Luck

  • I downloaded the latest version of itunes.  Now I cannot open iTunes.  I receive this error message: The procedure entry point AVCFAssetCreateWithByteStreamAndOptions could not be located in the dynamic link library AVfoundationCF.dll.  Thoughts?

    I downloaded the latest version of iTunes on my PC.  Now I cannot open iTunes.  I receive the following error message: "The procedure entry point AVCFAssetCreateWithByteStreamAndOptions could not be located in the dynamic link library AVfoundationCF.dll"  After pressing the "OK" button I receive a second error message: 'iTunes not installed correctly.  Please reinstall iTunes.  Error 7 (Windows error 127)".  I've uninstalled iTunes and reinstalled to no avail.  I've also eliminated the temp files (per suggestions on the trouble-shooting page) and no luck.  I also tried system restore and that did not fix the problem.  Any thougths on a repair?   

    Taken at face value, you're having trouble with an Apple Application Support program file there. (Apple Application Support is where single copies of program files used by multiple different Apple programs are kept.)
    Let's try something relatively simple first. Restart the PC. Head into your Add or Remove Programs control panel, select "Apple Application Support", click "Change" and then click "Repair".
    If no joy after that, try the more rigorous uninstall/reinstall procedure from the following post. (Although the procedure is for Vista and 7 and you've got XP, just read "Computer" as "My Computer", read "Uninstall a program control panel" as "Add or Remove programs control panel" and assume the system is 32-bit, and you'll be doing the right things.)

  • HT201210 Trying to restore ipod and keep on getting error message: the ipod software update server could not be contacted. the network connection was reset

    Hello can someone please help? Trying to restore ipod and I keep on getting error message: The IPod software update server could not be contacted. The network connection was reset. Make sure your network is active and try again.

    Try:
    - Powering off and then back on your router.
    - iTunes for Windows: iTunes cannot contact the iPhone, iPad, or iPod software update server
    - Change the DNS to either Google's or Open DNS servers
    Public DNS — Google Developers
    OpenDNS IP Addresses
    - Try on another computer/network
    - Wait if it is an Apple problem

  • I am trying to activate new itunes card. I am getting error message: The code you have entered has not been properly activated. Does this mean the store did something wrong or me?

    I am trying to activate new itunes card. I am getting error message: The code you have entered has not been properly activated. Does this mean the store did something wrong or me?

    Yes, the store didn't properly activate the card. If the store is nearly then you could try going back and asking them to do so, if it isn't (or if they can't/won't help) then try contacting iTunes Support (you will probably need to give them images of the front and back of the card, and possibly its receipt) : http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/ - click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page, then iTunes Cards And Codes

    Still getting same error message. Can anyone help me

    For general advice see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
    The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach. Review the other boxes and the list of support documents further down page in case one of them applies.
    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there is backup and recovery advice elsewhere in the user tip.
