Hi I have a HP printer Envy 5540 all in one series it has worked okay until now when I go to print it will not load a4 paper but occasionally will load 6x4 photo paper ?l

Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

Can you please remove the power to the printer (so unplug it from the power socket).

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the printer, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please

Can you rephrase what you were trying to say here please William?

"it it appears not print a downloaded document if i select a document from from"

If i select a document from document file it will print also if I scan a document it will lift the a4 paper. but then on occasion it prints on the photographic paper otherwise it is telling me it is out of paper when it is not.

From which program are you having the problem printing from?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The down loaded documents

yes, but in which program William?

I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and attempt to fix the problem for you.

Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself. Sometimes even with instructions you can make a mistake and make things worse.

I will send an offer through for remote support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps.

Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong.

If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me.

Sorry Richard is the £25.00 in addition to access fee ? of £26.00

Its no problem, It is an optional service and it is in addition, else please William can you respond to the question of which program you are having the problem in.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Please give me a clue as to what program

There are 1,000 of programs William... its the program that opens in front of you when you open it....

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
is that when i go to print ?

No, its the program you open your documents in

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Thats your operating system William...

It tells you the program when you open it

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If I pay the extra £25.00 for you to access the printer will this cure problem ?If so will your company send me a receipt for your services.the fault should be repairable by you as the printer is only 2 months old and as you can agree it is in the software / programing .

I cannot say what is now causing the problem, I need to check your computer to rule this out.

For payments and receipt you need to email***@******.*** for this

Being only 2 months has no bearing on this William, but I will confirm the issue and if it is software it will be resolved.
