Cannot Print Deskjet 6540

I had my wireless connection to deskjet 6540 working until a windows 7 update. Now can't print. Need help with settings since the printer is directly connected to another desktop system in the network.
I'm running w/7 on my laptop. It's wirelessly connected to a network and another desktop system with a desktop 6540 attached. I had the printer working from my laptop until there was a win 7 update last week. I removed and reinstalled the printer but still can't print. All my jobs hang up in the queue and say there is an error but doesn't give details. I'm wondering if i set up the wrong port but can't remember what i did to get it to work before. This time i'll write it down.

Hp Deskjet F4180 Print Only Get White Pages

I think i have a problem of the drivers of my printer (it's a hp deskjet f4180). My problem is that when i print i only get white pages. I am absolutely sure that my cartridge are full of ink, so i start thinking that there is some kind of a problem in the drivers or in windows.

Printer Problem - Print Job In Print Queue Is Preventing Other Print Jobs

Cannot print from new laptop to shared printer - "a print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing". I recently bought a new laptop and want to print to a printer (hp color laserjet 1600) i have shared over the network from a windows 7 (x64) machine. When i try to print from my laptop it stays in the print queue and i have to run the troubleshooter on the host computer to resolve the issue and allow it to print.

If i run the troubleshooter on the laptop it tells me it could not identify the problem while on the host it tells me "a print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing" and it says it fixed the problem and prints the document but i have to do this every time. I also have this printer added to a laptop and a netbook and they both print the document just fine and have no issues. The laptop i am having the problems is running windows 7 (x64).

Hp Deskjet 5850 Drivers Not Available

I have an hp deskjet 5850 (color) printer and newly installed windows 7 (upgraded from vista). A driver from hp for their 5600 series worked on vista but will not work on windows 7. When do you expect to certify hp printer drivers for use with windows 7, and what url will these be downloadable from?

I also can not use my netgear "n" wireless adapter since upgrading from vista to windows 7 because driver does not work. When/where will the driver be downloadable?

Hp Deskjet F2480 Problem

So i bought a new printer (hp deskjet f2480) because my old one was passed its sell-by date. I have a dell laptop that has windows 7 on it. I was very excited to use my new printer (sad i know, but the last one was driving me mad!) And i put the disk in to set it up and when it came to attaching the device up my laptop said it did not recognise the usb cable. It recognized it with my old printer though and was working fine. So why is my laptop deciding it does not like this cable? This is preventing me installing my printer properly and printing anything :( . Any help would be much appreciated, although i have troubleshooted for ages and tried the fixit thing here and also sent a message to the technical support for the printer via email. I've been trying to fix it for 2days (as soon as i bought it).

Hp Deskjet 1000c Is Not Detected

Windows 7 professional is being used. The computer is a dell studio xps 9000. The usb cable is a sabrent "usb to parallel (printer ieee1284) cable". The printer is the hp deskjet 1000c. This computer does not have a lpt port. When the cable is attached to the computer's usb, the cable is recognized but the printer is not. I tried to print a word and an excel file and neither program could detect the printer. I also tried to use the virtual pc utility, in xp mode, with some works files and got the same results.

The windows 7 compatibility list did show this printer as being compatible. Do i need different drivers, a different cable or what?

Hp Deskjet 9800 Printer Errors

Error messages-some postscript specific settings(interpolation, calibration, encoding) will be ignored since you are printing to a non post script printer. -Result print of 1/2 inch of 4 by 6 print, print about 25% of specified size, no print etc.

On hp932 and hp deskjet 9800. Error message, incompatible ink cartridges- even though using original hp60 cartridges supplied with printer at purchase and they worked for maybe 40 pages printing text only. Hp9800 and hp932 printers, hp scanjet 4470 all worked perfectly well on old windows me- i know they're old, but are there no fixes for these issues for a computer user without great technical knowledge. Or is the cure the dumpster for all my old peripherals?

Problem Installing Hp Deskjet F2180

I had vista home premium and an hp deskjet f2180. I upgraded to windows 7 home premium (32) but the system will not recognize my printer. I have been to the hp website and downloaded the correct drivers. It runs through the installation process but takes ages to configure then comes up with a notice saying the installation has failed. Solutions suggested by hp don't work everything just goes round and round in circles. I've carefully followed correct installation procedures. I've spent about 48 hours in this now and am shattered. My computer tells me to consult hp for installation help. The website and forums are no use.

This morning i rang them and they wouldn't help me without me agreeing to pay £15. After i went on at them a bit about their 'award winning' service which doesn't exist for free if you are out of warranty the person i spoke to came back and said the problem would be fixed if i did a 'fresh install' i.e.completely new disk of windows 7 (if i can persuade the person who installed it for me to do that). Obviously these things take time and cost money. Even then i don't know if it will work or if hp are just passing the buck by saying its a windows 7 issue. Has anyone else experienced this because i am at my wits end. I'd buy a new printer but then if7 is the problem that won't help.

Hp Deskjet 720c Network Printer Problem

I have two computers both running windows 7. One is running the 32-bit version and that one is connected directly to the printer (hp deskjet 720). My other computer is running the 64-bit version and is wireless. Whenever i try to print anything from the wireless computer, it gets stuck in the queue at the spooling stage. When i troubleshoot it it says that it can't contact the printer over the network. I've done everything i can think of. All the sharing options are set to share with the homegroup/network but it still doesn't work. Any help would be appreciated.

Hp Inkjet 2230 Printer - Print Jobs Stuck In Print Queue

Print jobs stuck in the print queue and will not print on windows 7 64-bit driver for hp business inkjet 2230 printer. I have installed the current hp universal printing pcl 5 driver on my windows 7 64-bit os. When i try to print a test page on my hp business inkjet 2230 printer (usb to parallel cable connection) the job hangs in the print queue. I can run the troubleshooter and purge the spooler but then i'm back where i started. The next print command will result in the same error.

This appears to have also been a problem with windows vista (64-bit). Suggestions to remedy the problem are welcomed.

Print Jobs Sent Do Not Print

After installing win 7 ultimate, my hp f4180 all-in-one stopped working. Test print jobs were sent to the printer, the printer icon appeared in the taskbar, but no documents showed up in the print queue. Nothing printed. A very lengthy session with hp support did the following:

- Reinstalled the win 7 driver
- Deleted the printer and then added it back
- Confirmed that the printer could print a test page from its own controls
- Stopped and restarted the spooler

The computer recognizes the printer in the device manager and says it's working properly.

Cannot Print Anything

I have windows 7 home premium 64 bit (dell inspiron 537s, if that makes a difference). My problem is that i can't print. Anything. It doesn't matter if i try to print to a physical printer, or if i try to create a pdf file using the adobe pdf printer. Nothing prints. There are no error messages popping up when i try to print. It just doesn't print. When i go to the printer settings, i can see the documents in the queue with "error", but that's it.

Here's the thing that stands out. Whenever i right-click on the printer and select properties, i'm not getting the usual 5-10 tabs. I'm only seeing two:  general and hardware (and nothing else). It doesn't matter if it's the physical printer, adobe pdf printer, or the windows fax device, i get the same odd properties display.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. At this point, i'm about ready to reinstall windows 7, but i'm hoping there's something simpler i'm missing.

Cannot Print Wirelessly

I've got an epson sx515w printer-scanner-copier, which i can't print to wirelessly from win 7 (64-bit edition). When it's connected using usb, it works fine. When my wife tries to print wirelessly from her macbook, it works fine. I can scan documents, and they're automatically sent to my win 7 pc without a problem. When i send a job to print, it just sits there in the queue, alternating between saying "printing" and "spooling", every 30 seconds or so, but nothing gets as far as the printer.

I've tried reinstalling all the drivers (which are win 7 certified), i've tried using msconfig to stop all my startup options, but nothing i seem to do makes any difference at all. During set-up, the pc can "see" the printer, and when i send a print job, i get information on the ink levels, but still no printing!Can anyone help me with this?

Cannot Print To Hp 6500n Printer

I just installed windows 7 upgrade over vista, and cannot print to my hp 6500n printer. Any clues? I have attempted to uninstall and reinstall drivers, but it still doesn't work, though it appears as one of my devices. I am having problems printing in all programs. I had already attempted to use: go to hp printer support and download this driver for window 7 32 bit.

File name:userhpndu-2017.exe, (1/1, 1. 2m)
Version 2. 0. 0. 17
Date 2009-10-20

When i do that, i get "this system does not meet one or more of the minimum requirements needed to install this product. The installation can't continue". So, nothing happens. Interestingly, the printer is in control panel, even though i have uninstalled and rebooted. During the last attempt, i connected the printer using the usb and windows appeared to attempt to grab a driver, but again, it does not work now wirelessly, and it did using vista.

Print Driver Is Not Installed

Driver doesn't work with my laserjet 2100. During the driver install, i used "windows update", it then locates the driver, and seemingly installs. Afterwards, when the printer is accessed, it errors. When i go into the printer console, it tells me ". Print driver is not installed. " I go back to device manager, and the driver is named, and seems that it is installed. Very frustrating. (I'm connecting to a printserver via wireless across to my local network to a print server). I have several other pc's running 2000, xp, and vista with no problems.

So in summary, after the driver is "installed", i get an error accessing the printer, and subsequently get an ". Driver not installed. " Error message during the troubleshooting period. Windows "troubleshooter" did not find any issues. Also, the printserver has a static ip address and i used that address in setting up the printer port. Now what?
