Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have just installed my C5580 printer and every step was perfect. I printed a picture from my library- no problem. I inserted my camera memory card and printed a picture - no problem. Then I went back to my photo files and tried to print another picture and I get the message to insert the memory card. I do that and there are more pictures on it than I show on my camera?? and I print one of them... but I still can't get it to print from my computer. I select a photo. I am using Picassa. I hit print. It tells me I am using the correct printer. But nothing happens.

SOURCE: trying to print a picture from my dell computer.

With the printer power on, unplug and then plug in the printer from/to the computer. This should force the printer to be reinstalled.
Check the printer status.
Click START>Control Panel>Devices and Printers>click on your printer. check the status for any error messages. On the printer status, delete all pending jobs. Once the printer status display shows that all pending jobs have been deleted, retry printing.
Let me know if printing is reestablished. Thanks.

Pictures wont print off of memory card or from inside camera

Copy Pictures From INTERNAL MEMORY to Memory Card (solution for those who have...

Samsung D53 Camera
Memory Card (Clean with no pictures on it!)
Fresh batteries

Memory card reader on your computer

You have several (or more) photos that were taken with no memory card inserted into the camera, and they have been stored on the camera's internal memory. You have no USB cord to get the pictures off your camera.

I don't know if this is in the manual (as this is a used camera I purchased with no manual or USB cord). In my frustration, I accidentally found out how to get my photos off the internal memory and onto my computer's hard drive.

Here are the steps I followed:

1. Ensure fresh batteries are inserted into your camera. You might lose data or get corrupted pictures if the camera dies while you're transferring pictures. Fresh batteries are important.

2. Insert memory card into the camera (where the batteries go) and close the lid.

3. Power camera on.

4. Press the Print/Review button (bottom button to the right of the LCD) once.

5. When you see the words "No Image!" appear, press the Menu/OK button.

6. A new menu will pop up, asking you COPY TO CARD -- use your buttons to highlight "Yes".

7. You will see your camera "Processing!" It will finish on its own, so do not interrupt the task.

8. Once it has finished "Processing!", remove memory card and insert into your computer's memory card reader to see and SAVE your pictures to your computer. Ensure all photos transferred properly before proceeding to Step 9.

9. With the memory card removed from the camera, power the camera back on and delete individual pictures, if you want to reserve internal memory for future emergency picture-taking situations (especially now that you know you can actually get the photos off of the camera's internal memory now!)

I don't know what happened but my pictures are gone and I don't know how to get them back! Please help!!?!

Assuming you didn't download the pictures to your computer ... and as part of the download option, you elected to erase/remove the pictures (after downloading them) from the camera ... and you have not done anything (on the camera menu) to "refresh" or erase the pictures, or reformat the storage media (memory card) ...
then ...
... if the pictures are stored in a memory card .... you can take that memory card out of the camera, insert it into your computer ( ... or use a card reader, inserted into a USB port) ... and see if you can recover the "deleted" data from the memory card ...

... if the camera only has "internal" memory ... connect the camera to your computer ... and when it shows up as a storage media, try to recover the "deleted" data from the memory card ...

You can (find on the Internet) and install and use various (free) software (on your computer) to recover "deleted" files on storage media (memory card, etc.), ... on a Windows PC ... like PhotoRec, PC Inspector File Recovery, Undelete Plus (or Undelete 360), Glary Undelete, Wise Data Recovery, Recuva Free.

P, td, li {font-family: arial, u; font-size:9pt; margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:0px; word-spacing:1px;} If you camera freezes when you power it on or when you try to take a picture, you may have a defective memory card. To test your camera and the memory card, follow these steps:
  1. Power off your camera.
  2. Remove the battery from your camera. If you have a memory card inside the camera, remove that as well.
  3. Clean out any dust or debris inside the battery compartment, and then re-insert the battery into your camera.
  4. Power your camera on without the memory card installed.
  5. Take a picture.
    • If your camera takes a picture, re-install the memory card, and then go to Step 6.
    • If it does not take a picture, your camera requires service. To set up service, click the Create Online Service Request button below.
  1. Format the memory card in the camera, and then take another picture.
  2. Important: Formatting erases all pictures and other data from the card. If you have pictures on the memory card you want to keep, download those pictures to your computer before you format the memory card.
    • If your camera does not take a picture with the formatted memory card installed, replace the memory card.
    • If the issue still persists after you’ve installed a new memory card, your camera requires service. To set up service, click the Create Online Service Request button below

    To print photos my machine requires a memory card. What card should I ask for and where/how do I install it?

    You can print photos from your computer too. Usually, people use memory cards from their digital camera, when they want to print photos directly from the memory card. If you do not have a digital camera or any other device that uses a memory card (i.e. a mobile phone), I am not sure you need one in order to print photos. However, here is the answer to your question:
    You can use several memory cards in your printer, but only one memory card at a time! You can use:
    • SmartMedia, xD-Picture Card (fits in bottom right of the slot)
    • Memory Stick, Magic Gate Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo (with user-supplied adapter), Memory Stick Pro
    • CompactFlash (I, II)
    • Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard (MMC)

    Here is a picture, so you can see how to install them:


    You can buy either one of these memory cards, it's up to you to decide which one you want.
    Hope that helps!

    My printer (Canon MP830) will not read my memory card from my camera. an SD card. You can print straight from the card. I press "Memory Card" as the source on the top of the printer and select "Print while...

    Did you let the camera format the sd card before you took your pictures? Have you tried another sd card? Its possible the pc did not close the card properly so the printer does not see it. I would try another card before going any further. Make sure your setting on the printer is set to read only (in "Other" settings) if at read/write you will not be able to print.
