Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong area. I have an HP4014N that is giving me fits, poor print quality on envelopes. I have gone in circles, on-line, trying to find someone who sells the repair service manual so I can fix the problem. Can someone please direct me to a site I can check out to see if I can find the repair manual? Thanks. Hope posting such a request is not out of line.

When your printer doesn***8217;t respond. First, check the power and connections to and from
your printer. Is everything securely connected and turned on? Your printer cable can
easily come loose from the back of your PC. For parallel port printers, fasten the
thumbscrews to the back of the machine to avoid loose connections.
Also, check your port settings in Windows***8217; Device Manager. Right-click My Computer on
The Printers window
helps you manage
settings and statuses
of all your printers.
your Desktop (or click System from the Windows Control Panel), click Properties, and
select the Device Manager tab. Click the plus sign (+) to expand the Ports menu item
and view Properties for your Printer Port (LPT1). Verify that the port is working properly
and it is enabled, and that you have the appropriate drivers installed. USB (Universal
Serial Bus) printer cables can also come loose, and they often conflict with other
devices. Remove any USB peripherals and try again. Next, check your printer status by
right-clicking its name in the Printer window. Is it online? Is it your default printer? If
another printer (or even a printing program, such as a virtual fax printer or Adobe
Acrobat distiller) has taken over the default role, you may be printing to the wrong place
without realizing it.
