Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
These are the steps for WinXP
For windowsVista after control panel go to Printer or hardware and sounds to go to printers (Then rest same as WinXP)
First check the printer icon. ( Make sure the printer is turned on during this process)
Go to Start> Control Panel (or setup then contro panel) and then go to Printer and faxes (or printers and other hardware)
And check that the printer C5100 Series has a check mark.
If not right click on the same and left click on Set printer as default.
Next make sure the printer icon says 0Ready.
If not right click on top of the C5100 Series icon and left click on Clear all documents (untill it says 0ready)
If it still does not say 0Ready, then restart the computer and check to print any document.
If you do not see the C5100 icon then you may have to install the printer driver ( If is is already installed)
Then unplug the USB cable which is connected to the printer end and leave it unplugged for atleast 1Mins before reconnecting>
After reconnecting it should install the printer diriver on its own>
Go to Start> Control Panel (or setup then contro panel) and then go to Printer and faxes (or printers and other hardware) then C5100Series.if it says 0Ready>Right click on the same icon and left click on Properties>
Now in this window towards the bottom right you will see a tab which says print test page>Click on it to see if it prints a test page.
