by joe11701 In reply to server busy

I am also receiving the same message box. at various times throughout the session it pops up without warning. I could be reading email (outlook) surfing (IE) or writing a document (Word)

I recently installed a new HP 6310 All-in-One device on my network, and installed the software.

server busy - possible answer

by joe11701 In reply to server busy

After thinking about my "server Busy" problem, i remembered that it started after i installed a new printer on my pc,

I'm in the process of checking out this lead with the manufacturer.

Have you installed anything before you started to get this message?

Use Process Explorer

To figure out which process is consuming the CPU cycles.

Much better than Task Manager, shows hidden processes and much more detailed.

Used to be made by Systernals and now by Microsoft...they acquired them recently.

I originally installed the printer designated as a network printer. I removed the software and reinstalled the printer as a local printer and my problem went away. good luck.

HP-6300, HP-6310, HP-6313 and Server Busy

by izked In reply to Installation of HP6310

The solution is simple:

1. Fully uninstall all HP software components and driver.

2. Reinstall only basic software (do not choose full). Do not install extended capabilities.

This will stop the server busy pop ups and reduce considerably CPU USAGE.

2 solutions - reinstall or go USB instead of TCP/IP

by dale.rivers In reply to HP-6300, HP-6310, HP-6313 ...

I'm pulling my hair out with my HP6310. It's a good quality printer/scanner when it works but the HP software is terrible.

I unloaded the CD bundle and installed just the drivers (available here

That worked for a while and still does for printing but scanning now produces the SERVER BUSY error. I cannot get rid of the error box but it goes by itself after 5 or 10 minutes then I can scan. I cannot install the 'server busy' patch because the installation fails.

I've since gone USB and it's working OK now but it's the last time I get a HP printer. Go Invent! Bollocks!
