Top 4 HP Printer Help Websites and Forums
Over the years we have seen some great HP printer help sites come and go. These websites have been critical to supporting the industry as they have documented most printer problems and the various solutions all in one place.
The vast majority of these printer troubleshooting websites are run and maned by dedicated technicians that have no connection to the OEM and in most cases are not compensated. They love what they do and enjoy sharing their knowledge with the world.
One of the highest rated contributors on the HP LaserJet Printer board is a customer of ours who posses a tremendous amount to field service skills. He works all day for a local service company and goes home and logs on nightly to help other technicians out.

Special Note on Field Printer Service Skills
There is a difference between field service skills and service manual skills. The skill I am describing is when a technician can diagnose a problem by simply hearing the printer.
This type of technician can solve or troubleshoot common problems in a HP printer by tracing where the device was plugged in at and what else was on that same circuit, without removing a cover.
