Hp Photosmart C6180 Wireless Printer Problem

I've wrestled with this problem for several weeks. I have a hp dv3 laptop on a homegroup network. I have an hp photosmart 6180 (wireless) printer. My desktop pc can print, my wife's laptop can print, but i cannot. When try to print everything seems to go as it should with no errors, no delays. To all intents i should have a printout, but i don't. My wife has the same model laptop, and can print directly to the printer using her installed drivers, or via homegroup printer sharing with our desktop.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled and everything seems ok. The hp solution centre tells me the printer is there and even allows me to access the printer settings on an html page from my laptop. I even can see the ink level, but i cannot print. My laptop is windows 7 home premium, my wife the same and the desktop has win 7 ultimate.

Hp Photosmart C6300 Wireless Printer Issue

Connecting a new windows 7 laptop (sony vaio) to an existing hp wireless printer that will be shared with two existing xp computers - one laptop and a desktop. After connecting my new sony vaio, which is running windows 7, to an existing wireless hp photosmart c6300 printer, a second laptop in my home (running xp) can no longer access the wireless printer; the printer had been removed from the computer. I set up a home group unintentionally when i set up the printer on my new laptop.

I was asked if i was going to "share a printer" and i selected "yes", but i do not need a home group because i'm not sharing anything other than the printer. I have uninstalled the printer on my windows 7 laptop and reinstalled it, but it seems once the home group is set up, it is there to stay. I'm able to print from the windows 7 computer as well as the desktop xp, but not the second xp laptop. Any ideas on how to remedy this issue?

Hp Photosmart C4480 - Printer Not On Server

Have downloaded patch from hp but still stays "printer not on server". I upgraded my xp desktop to w7 which is connected to hp photosmart c4480 all in one and this computer prints ok. My laptop was upgraded from vista to w7 and is on the homegroup. I can access all the libraries no problem but when i try to print it states "printer not on server".

Have checked that printer is shared and have downloaded recent patch from hp, have deleted old drivers and installed latest w7 drivers from hp, have run printer troubleshoot and network troubleshoot which says everything is working ok? What am i missing ?

Hp Photosmart C5550 Printer Problem

I have a new computer, windows 7, ms office suite loaded. Moved all my old ms documents to new computer, and now the xl docs will not accept printer? Printer is hp c5550 photosmart. I continually get a dialog box when i try to print any of my excel docs. There is no problem in my computer talking to the printer in any program outside of ms office, or when printing power point or word docs transferred to my new setup - only the xl spreadsheets. I have repeatedly tried working thru the recommended "fixes" without success (checking cables, ink, paper, power, everything short of removing and reinstalling drivers).

Sharing Wireless Network Between Win 7, Xp, Wireless Printer

I had no trouble sharing my wireless network when the desktop was xp and the laptop was xp. Since replacing the desktop with a new windows 7 unit, i cannot manage to set up a network. I just purchased a new wireless printer, and i cannot set it up wirelessly either. I can network the printer to work with the win7 desktop if i connect the printer to my router with a ethernet cable. My router sees all 3 devices and i can ping the printer and the laptop from the desktop. The desktop is connected to the router via ethernet cable.

Wireless Printer Not Connecting

I have installed a wireless printer on my computer. I am able to connect the usb cord from my printer to my computer, and print just fine, but when i try to print wirelessly, my computer pops up a message saying that the communication could not be accessed. It gives suggestions on how to fix the problem, which i have done all of except for 1. It says to check the firewall to see if it allows the computer to read the printer. But i don't know how to find the printer option in my firewall section. How do i get my wireless to work on my computer?

Using Both Wired And Wireless Connection - 1 For Internet 1 For Printer

Using both a wired connection and wireless connection - one for internet access, one for printer access. We have a business dsl account, where we get 5 static ip addresses. We use the dsl router to connect 2 computers, a nas, and another wireless router, to provide access to others.

We have a networkable hp officejet 8500 a909g, but no longer have any more available ports to add it to the network. What i contemplated doing was hard-wiring the printer to the wireless router, then using the wireless card on my laptop, and a wireless adapter on the desktop (these are the 2 computers hard-wired to the dsl router) to connect to the wireless router, allowing us to see the printer and use it.

However, whenever i do this, the wireless connections seem to take precedence over the wired connections, which sort of negates the fact that they are wired in the first place. Is there a way to give the wired connection precedence, and then using the wireless only when we need to print? And does the computer being connected to two networks at one cause any problems?

Problem Printing Through Wireless Printer Server

Problems printing with hp950c through a d-link dp-g310 wireless printer server after upgrade from windows vista to windows 7. I have a sony vgnz790dib that came with windows vista. I could access and use a hp950c inkjet printer through a d-link dp-g310 wireless printer server with vista. I upgraded to windows 7 yesterday and now cannot use the printer.

A dell xps 1330 running vista works fine. As far as i can tell, the ip address for the printer server on the sony is identical to that on the dell. I ran troubleshooter for the printer and there was no problem uncovered. I then went online to see if others had the same problem but could not find any identical problems. I went to hp online and found that there was an updated software which i downloaded and also connected the printer directly to the sony via usb and still no printing. Any advice on what to do next?

Hp Photosmart C4280 Device Failed With Errors

Local printing to the hp photosmart c4280 all-in-one device fails with errors in the error printing from the macbook pro to the same printer shared from the windows 7 machine works fine.

The errors are:

The print spooler failed to load a plug-in module c:windowssystem32spooldriversx643unidrvui.dll, error code 0xc1. See the event user data for context information.

The document microsoft word - references.doc, owned by michael, failed to print on printer hp photosmart c4200 series. Try to print the document again, or restart the print spooler.

Data type: nt emf 1. 008. Size of the spool file in bytes: 65536. Number of bytes printed: 0. Total number of pages in the document: 1. Number of pages printed: 0. Client computer: \rivendell. Win32 error code returned by the print processor: 2147500037. Unspecified error

Restarting the print spooler does not fix the issue. Installing the latest software and patches also does nothing. Setting permissions to full control for everyone on the unidrvui.dll also has no effect. Unchecking "enable bidirectional support" on the ports tab of the printer properties doesn't work either. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Hp Photosmart C6380 Driver Won't Install

I am trying to connect an hp photosmart printer c6380 all in one to my windows 7os netbook. My netbook is an asus eeepc 100he if that pertains. I am connecting it with a usb cord. I downloaded the software/driver package from the website since this printer is second hand. After most of the install is done it makes me connect the printer so it can install the drivers. It mostly installs the drivers through windows update but it can't find or install the hp photosmart c6300 driver. All the other ones install but not this one. I have completely uninstalled the program and reinstalled it and also just uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled them. No matter what i try it doesn't work. The only drivers offered on the hp site come with the full software/driver install package. I am just lost and thinking of giving up. I want an all in one printer but not if it takes another whole night of trying to figure it out if anyone knows a solution it would be much appreciated. Also i only have the printer for a short time before i have to make a decision whether to actually buy it so prompt answers would really help.
