Question about HP Photosmart 2610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

I don't know how to hook up my printer.

It was working fine and then I got a virus on my computer. So I had to call for tech help and got my computer back to factory settings. But now my printer won't work. I'm very computer illiterate. Can someone please help me. What do I do? Someone told me I should have some discs to download, but I don't know where my discs are. Is there another way?
Thanks!

Here is a link to the main support page for your printer:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=421139&os=228&lang=en&

You will need to click on "Software & Driver Downloads", which will take you to a page to choose your operating system. Click the appropriate OS. You will then be taken to a page to select the software you need/want.

You will probably need to select the Basic Software and Driver. The Full Feature is over 276MB. If you have broadband/cable, it will still take awhile to download that big a file. The basic is 37MB. You have the option to purchase a new CD if you like.

Once you click on your choice. You have the option to Install or Download. I would suggest you click Install since you say you aren't that great with computers. If you need more help, just comment.

GO INTO START, CLICK ON COMPUTER AND UPDATE YOUR COMPUTER. YOU MAY HAVE TO TURN YOU ANTI-VIRUS, DEFENDER ETC, BACK ON WHICH YOU CAN ALSO DO IN YOUR COMPUTER.

WHEN INSTALLING NEW SOFTWARE, ANTIVIRUS IS USUALLY DISABLED, JUST ENABLE IT...TYPE IN ENABLE ANTI-VIRUS, IT WILL COME UP AND CHOOSE YOUR OPTIONS, YOU'LL HAVE TO DO THIS FOR YOUR FIRE WALL AND DEFENDER IF YOU HAVE THOSE ENABLE ALL OF THEM.

WHEN DONE RESTART, MAKE SURE YOUR PRINTER IS HOOKED UP TO COMPUTER, SO IT CAN BE DETECTED AND INSTALLED WHEN STARTING THE COMPUTER.

IF YOUR COMPUTER DOESN'T DETECT YOUR PRINTER, THAN GO INTO YOUR COMPUTER, CLICK ON ADD PRINTER, EITHER AUTOMATIALLY DETECT, OR ENTER THE INFO OF TYPE OF PRINTER AND WHETHER YOU HAVE THE DISK, INSERT DISK, IF YOU DON'T HAVE DISK, THEN CLICK ALL PRINTER INFO, WHAT BRAND & MODEL CLICK NEXT.

YOU WILL HAVE TO RESTART AGAIN, AFTER INSTALLING YOUR PRINTER, IF THAT IS NECCESSARY! SHOULD BE OK AFTER YOU ENABLE YOUR VIRUS PROTECTION.

HOPE THIS HELP!

I just left you a response on your other post about this same topic. Just so you know, you did not buy your equipment through FixYa. FixYa is a forum for people to get help from the community or to pay to get help from experts. No one here sold you that equipment. I am sorry you are having trouble, but please don't blame the people who are trying to help you.

Printer prints garbage


Did it ever work on new system or never has. Sound like either a software conflict or similar but most likely it doesn't like new machine specs. Have you made sure no other printer software is accidentally installed. Are specs for new system and printer compatable. Some manufacturers specify their machines specifically do not like certain OS's and specs. Because pc and software tech is going so fsat it is really hard for manufacturers to keep up, just as they run off their new printer, state of the art, microsoft brings out a new OS etc, and voila, a new updateddriver is needed. Have you considered it may be the pc causing the errors, ie the registry (from malware,spyware etc) not allowing proper installation. This can and does happen. Just last week, my friends printer was perfectly fine, she had some spyware and we had to edit the registry as it had corrpted where the printer was installed but also her cd rom drive icon and use were wiped out. Run antispyware virus and registry scans to eliminate these. Also try installing printer off a back up copy of the disc not original, good luck.
