H/P's are loaded with software glitches and driver short comings. You may need to remove the power cord for 2 minutes and then power up from scratch. After you do that power down your mobile devices as well. I mean completely shut them down so they need to reboot for a minute when they are turned back on. Do the printer first. This will cold boot your printer and make it available for fresh initialization. The mobile devices will update drivers if available. Good luck. And no it is not the same as turning the on/off button off and on.
Please uninstall the software as it has not been installed correctly... uninstall the entire software completely while doing it make sure the printer USB cable should be unplugged ... reinstall the software by downloading the full version software from HP.COM
This is an educated guess but your problem is most likely a driver/software file conflict which is causing the software to bork before it completes the installation.
In all honesty the HP software is bloatware that is frequently identified as more trouble than it's worth. So, my recommendation would be to try and locate a more suitable software package that will work with the scanner to do what you want instead.
You are probably best to download the basic driver only package for your unit and then completely remove the old software before installing fresh (remember to unplug the printer before you install the new drivers).
I appreciate that this is not the most elegant solution but as I noted the HP software is not overly user friendly and in the interests of retaining your hair, sanity and keeping therapy bills to a minimum I'd invest your time in finding a more suitable application that will work with a TWAIN scanner (which the HP L7680 should be).
I would recommendun installing "any" HP software first, then download and install the latest driver from HPs site. You could could also try running the installer with all startup apps disabled incase there is some conflicting software. You can do this by typing in "msconfig" from start > run. Once open select "selective startup" then uncheck "load startup items". If you resort to this be sure you have unintstalled all HP software first as some HP software does run at startup. Also be sure to re-enable the startup items after troubleshooting.
The installation will get stalled at 96% , because due to 3rd party service running, will not allow to install HP printer driver.To resolved this follow below steps
1.Disconnect the Printer and uninstall the software. 2.Reboot the PC. 3.Click start, then in "start search" box type "msconfig"(without quotes).Click OK. 4.In System Configuration Utility, Under GENERAL tab, click on SELECTIVE STARTUP, Uncheck "Load System Services" and "Load Startup Items".Click on Apply 5.Then Click on SERVICES tab, at the bottom Check "Hide all Microsoft Services" and then click "Disable all". 6.Click apply and OK. Reboot the PC. 7.Now install the software.
hi my name is pete heres how you fix your hp photosmart D5160 printer make sure your printer is connected to the computer and swiched on now if you put your disc in what came with your printer just set up the software on your disc to your computer ( restalling it ) after you have finished installing it your computer will ask you to reset so it can take affect once loaded back up your printer should be as good as new and works like the day you brought it good luck
You can download the setup files from the Internet by clicking here. Choose which version of Windows you have, then click on the "HP Photosmart printer software/driver" and "HP Photosmart Essential Software for Photo Editing, Printing, and Sharing". Open the printer software when the download is complete and it will set up the printer, once that is finished then open the Photo Editing software (second download) and you should be good to go.
It's suggested to un-install the software & reinstall. Follow these instructions. Some files are corrupt & need to be re-installed.
Disconnect the USB cable from the printer only. Insert the printer CD. When prompted, click Remove and wait for the software to un-install. Click, Finish to complete the un-install process. Click, Yes when prompted to restart Windows. Windows needs to be restarted for the changes to take effect.
Wait for system to fully finish loading.
Do not plug in the USB cable until instructed to do so.
Load the HP printer CD. Follow CD's instruction for install.
When completed re-start the system even if the software
has not instructed you to.
Check if the service tab function?
