Question about HP Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

I own a hppsc2400 from new, which I installed on my previous computer without any problem. I have recently purchased a new computer and although the new computer recognises the printer immediately (the System on my new computer is Vista Premium), when I tried to instal the printer with the cd, so that I can make use of the "HP Directory", the installation terminated half-way with an instruction that "Administrative Rights required". I am the owner and the only Administrator of my new pc. Please can you help. Thanks. Basil Ejindu

Ensure that the drivers are the ones for Vista. If drivers on disk are not the ones for Vista, download from here
HP PSC 2400 Photosmart All-in-One Printer series - Download ...
Additionally, Vista has what is called User account conrol (UAC) interface. This will start the installation program without administrator privileges.

Locate the setup file on the disk, click right mouse button on file, and from the drop down menu chose "Run as Administrator"

See
Vista Support: Run As Administrator
and

"run as administrator"? - TechNet Forums

I have a hppsc2400 series printer i can not locate the hp director so i can view ink levels, etc. i can not find my original disc.


The best thing to do is to uninstall the software.
and go to hp web page and down load the new software use the auto updater this will give you all the software needed for the printer.
this should fix it.
Good Luck .
And Happy Computing.

HP PSC 1210xi does not accept paper from the paper tray.


Remove IE8. Use add / remove programs. It will put you back to IE7 and your printer problem will most likely be gone.

How to install printer to new laptop


You can find the drivers from this website:
http://www.digipro.co.uk/canon-products/printers/colour-printers/canon-ip4300/drivers.html (Click the Windows logo to start download)

Instructions are also there to help you install them.

The manuals you can request from canon (http://www.canon.co.uk/Support/User_Manuals/index.asp) but it looks like you need to pay for them.

Although I did manage to find the Quick Start Guide here: http://www.leoscamera.com/Digital/canon/ip4300_qsg_us_v1.pdf

Hope that helps.
