Deskjet is a brand name for inkjet printers manufactured by Hewlett-Packard. These printers range from small domestic to large industrial models, although the largest models in the range have generally been dubbed DesignJet.
How do inkjet printers work? In the inkjet printing mechanism, the print head has several tiny nozzles, also called jets. As the paper moves past the print head, the nozzles spray the ink onto it, forming the characters and images.
Your printer should have been packaged with a USB cable regardless of whether it is a wireless or wired printer. Plug the cable into your printer and your computer`s USB port. The direct linking should trigger your computer to recognize the printer and start up the software needed to complete the installation.
Install the HP Smart app

The HP Smart app is the main software for your printer. Install the HP Smart app to your mobile device or computer. Once installed, you can open the HP Smart app and use it to set up your printer on your network.

What is Deskjet? Deskjet printing is a type of printing where the ink is deposited on paper through a desktop printer. The most common type of deskjet printer uses thermal inkjet technology, which heats small drops of ink and sprays them onto the paper.
Deskjet printers are more expensive than most inkjet printers. If you`re looking to spend a little more for the guarantee of quality, then a Deskjet is a good choice. HP are generally quite reliable as a brand, but no more so than Epson, Canon or Brother.
The computer sends the file and your selected print options to a printer that`s connected to your computer. The computer`s printer driver translates the computer data into a language the printer is able to understand (every computer must have an installed driver for every printer it`s going to print on)
Printing on 20% = 120 pages. Printing on 40% = 60 pages.
Sometimes power cycling your printer can resolve the issue. Turn off your printer and unplug it, wait 30 seconds, plug your printer back in, and then turn the printer back on.
You need to ensure your HP printer has enough paper, ink, or toner, and it is not stuck on paper jam. Also, check the status of your printer cartridge and try replacing it with a new one if it is not good enough. In some cases, your HP printer stops printing after you replace its parts.

HP deskjet 460 Waste ink tank full
ANSWER : I worked fixing printers for 5 years for Verizon and some of the older printers were notorious for the waste receptacle filling and overflowing with ink. My solution was good old warm water. Remove the waste container and scoop out as much as you can with a small screwdriver, wiping the discard on a paper towel, then just run warm water from the faucet into the container till all the residue is removed. This is just water soluble ink folks, if you want to test it, scoop out a glob and dissolve it in warm water, its easy as pie. I never once bought a new ink discard reservoir. I just cleaned out my mobile 460 printer reservoir by the same method. There are no electrical connections its just all plastic.
