The HP Deskjet 3938 is a reliable and durable printer that is always ready to print your next document or project. This printer has a simple and straight forward design, that lets users format projects with a PC and then send those projects to the printer's driver to be printed the way they appear on the computer's print preview screen. To simplify the printer's ongoing operation, this machine uses 2 separate HP Deskjet 3938 ink cartridges, one for black ink and the other containing color.
Users can communicate with this device through a USB cable when utilizing a computer compatible with Windows 98SE, 2000, Me, and XP or Mac OS X v 10.2, v 10.3, and later. The straight forward paper feed pathway worked into the design of this compact printer, will reduce paper jams and paper misfeeds. This printer, measuring only 16.6 inches in width, 13.62 inches in depth, and 5.6 inches in height, will be able to fit onto nearly any surface whether it is a desktop, countertop, or nestled into a closet.
The HP Deskjet 3938 ink cartridges that come with this machine are easy to replace with automatic cartridge alignment. When lifting up the exterior lid to expose the internal hardware of the printer, the ink cartridges will automatically align in the center of the machine to be replaced. After snapping out the used cartridges and snapping in new replacement HP 21 black ink and / or HP 22 tri-color ink cartridges, the ink tanks will align and prepare themselves again to be ready to print as soon as the lid is closed.
