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 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?

Win 7 Wont Recognize Usb Hp Deskjet F2280 Printer

Just today purchased a brand new sony vio laptop. Have a hp deskjet f2280 printer - which i have downloaded the drivers off the hp website (as the disk did not support windows 7) however i keep getting a message that that the 'usb device is not recognized' i have reloaded the software, run checks on the system but still nothing (the software is installed and recognized including showing print logs ques etc). The printer was working on an older computer.

Do i just need to buy a new usb printer cable or is there a cheaper solution to an already expensive day!?

Hp 720c Driver 64-bit

I've got two of these printers that are about 10 years old, but they still print like they are brand new. Even more importantly, the black ink cartridge is size of a bar of soap, they never run out. I can see why hp stopped designing printers like the 720. The real money is selling ink cartridges. My wife has a 6000 series deskjet, which i can print from, but the black ink cartridge is a joke. It's about 1/5 the volume of the one in the 720. I'll burn through it in a weekend.

You folks all know where my question is going, right? The w7 drivers simply will not work with the 720c. Does anybody know where i can download a driver for an old hp deskjet? I don't care about color printing. I'm just looking for low cost black and white printing.

I've even tried installing a virutal pc, just so i can print to the 720c. That works, but ms flags me because i need to buy a new license for word. It seems crazy, but i need two licenses for word to run them on a single desktop if i'm running one in the virtual pc mode. I'll buy a new laserjet before i do that.

Yes, the hp 720c is as old as dirt, but it will print 1, 000, 000 pages with a single ink cartridge. One of you driver gurus has got to know about a fix. Please!

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).

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 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?

Network Printer

Trying to set up a network printer and having problems. Printer is hp photosmart c5200 hooked up to pc running windows 7. It works fine on that computer. I have a laptop running windows vista that i would like to get to share the printer. Laptop is obviously wireless. Did have the same set up working on a pc running windows xp with no problems. I have the sharing tabs set on both pc and a homegroup set up on pc ( workgroup on laptop ).

Can access pc from laptop, but when i go to discover printer it is not showing up. Can access pc and navigate to folder showing printer. Have tried to manually add printer to laptop, but will not print. Did notice that laptop and pc are in different workgroups in laptop network set up, but can't figure out how to delete one and put them in same workgroup. Any help is appreciated

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.

Network Printer Not Working

I'm having trouble getting windows 7 pro (64 bit) talking to a network printer. The printer (samsung clp660) is connected directly to the network (via ethernet cable). I have downloaded the correct drivers from the samsung website which just happens to be the same for all versions of windows and after running the setup and using the samsung software to setup the printer as a network printer, which sees the printer on the network and appears to install perfectly.

However, this is where the problem starts. First the printer was showing as 'offline' so i disabled snmp on the tcp/ip port that this printer was using which fixed the 'offline' problem. When i try to print a test page it does not print giving an error in the print queue. When i run the troubleshooting wizard it says that windows is not communicating with printer and is unable to rectify the problem. I have also successfully managed to ping the printer from the offending windows 7 workstation.

I have successfully installed the same network printer on 2 other xp pro workstations using the same setup package.

Printing On Network Printer

I upgraded 2 desktop pcs from vista to win 7. Each pc has its own printer directly attached. Prior to upgrading, both pcs could print to either printer. After upgrading, one pc can print to both but the other can print only the printer directly attached however, the printer on the other machine is visible when checking devices on the network. I have gone through checking network names, sharing, reinstalling drivers, deleting and reinstalling the printer with no success. I've even attempted to establish a "home group" but am unable to do so. Any suggestions?

Network Printer Cannot Connect

Its for my homegroup network with both computers running windows 7 (pc is on 64bit and laptop is on 32bot). I can print from the pc where the printer (epson) is connected via usb but i can't print from my laptop through the network. The homegroup works fine enough, i can access files through it. I thought originally it was pharos that was upsetting the computer (installed very very poorly and finally days later managed to get every sign of it off the laptop) - but now i get the printer being found but it won't connect!

I've been though a couple of other threads but none of it seems to work. The file and printer sharing has always been connected (as my brother from his xp computer can print to my printer) and the firewall lets it through. Is there any other way? The permissions are set to print for everyone so its not that either. Does anyone know how i can get my laptop access to print?

Printer Not Printing Over Network

I saw a question similar to mine but not quite the same issue. My main desktop is running win7 pro and my laptops and other desktop are running win xp pro. I have set up a work network not a home network, per instructions from a friend in it. All other computers can see the printer and print jobs get spooled to the main computer. The jobs arrive but do not print. Just to clarify, i can print just fine from the main computer. I know there is a tutorial on here for this issue, but the graphics are no longer present, so it's rather difficult to check what the settings should be.

Network Printer Not Recognized

I am running windows 7 pro on a laptop connected to a network server utilizing windows 2000 server. When i try to add a network printer on the server to the laptop, the printer shows up in the add a printer wizard, but when selected, the process ends with an error message that the printer port is unknown. Incidentally, i can access the network printer if i access it on the laptop as a shared printer on another machine connected to the server running xp, but not directly off the server as i want to. Any help in getting the printer port recognized?

I have recently upgraded my laptop to windows 7, while the rest of my office still uses windows xp. I was able for a month or so to print to all printers, since upgrading. However, now it will allow me to print to all printers on the network except for one. The other people in the office are still able to print to that printer. What can i do?

Error - 0x00000866 - Cannot Use Network Printer

An hp printer in our home is connected to a w95 laptop and shared to the homegroup. Other laptops, mostly xp, use this printer by wireless network. A new windows 7 laptop can not "persistently" use this printer. (Error 0x00000866) adding it as a local printer, selecting the correctly listed network location (serverprinter_name) as a port, allows printing until the computer is rebooted. After the reboot the print jobs just go onto the printer queue because the printer is described as "offline". There seems to be no way to put the printer "online". Is there any way to add the printer so that it can be used after rebooting?

Network Printer Driver Not Found

I have installed and tested a dell p1500 laser print as a local printer. When i attempt to install the same device as a network printer, the printer is found via the network, but the drivers can not be located. If i could locate where that driver was installed for the local installation, would it also work for the network installation?If so, where do i locate the drivers for the locally installed devices?

Network Printer Wakeup Problem

I have a windows 7 laptop wi-fi'ed to my windows 7 desktop, both recently upgraded from vista. The printer on the desktop is network-shared. On the desktop, under power options, sleep, "allow wake timers" is enabled. Printing from the laptop under vista could occur whether the desktop was awake or asleep. Now, under w7, printing occurs only when the desktop is awake. On the desktop, under printer properties, "sharing" tab, it reads: " the printer will not be available when the computer sleeps.

To change these settings, use the network and sharing center. " However, i can find no option there to allow waking the desktop on a print request from the laptop. How can i cause the desktop to awake on a laptop print request?
