Deskjet f2180 not printing complete jobs/will not delete...
It started doing this before I added my apple airport express and continues to do so after I have the AEX set up.
I can send a test page to the printer, it starts and prints about 3/4 of the page and stops printing. No error message, no blinking lights, etc. If I try to print another job, like a .doc, it will send it to the spooler, it will show it, but it won't even start the job.
I have shut down, uninstalled, reinstalled, downloaded bonjour for HP and AEX.
Also, when I try to delete the printer from the printer folder, it says deleting but it never deletes it....

Had a similar problem with an HP 1400 series printer. Check the HP support site. This link and the diagnostic utility work great for me: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&custom_solutionid=rd_c01367104&rule=25494&product=458978&docname=c01072463

I am not familiar with apple - However
Apple suggests resetting the printer system in the link below https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203159 Also driver may need updating which can be downloaded from brothers web site.
Other possibility I thought of is the port being used may not match the port that printing uses. port 515 TCP could be being blocked by a firewall of some kind or is not set up correctly.
When you installed the new software did you delete your old print setup in the printer preferences as it may be conflicting with the new driver. I would delete all appropriate hp F2180 printers from the printer preferences and then install the print software again. When you do that does your printer show up? if it does not show up there could be a problem with the usb cable or the usb port on the back of your mac, swop it into another usb port, if it still does not show up, use a different usb cable. Hope this helps.
Try going to System Preferences (either in the Dock or from the Apple Menu) Then Print&Fax Then on the left side of the window is a list of all printers. If you double-click on the printer, another window opens Your old print jobs should appear here. Choose Select All from the Edit menu (or Command-A) There is a Delete button at the top left. Click it and the old print jobs should be erased.
Vista has very little drivers for equipment sad but true. However in your case you can use Airport Extream.
However here is what an apple tech had to say:
If you are a Vista user and you don't have access to a Mac, you will not be able to get this working.
Apple hasn't yet stirred itself to release a version of Airport Express Assistant that works with Windows Vista - you can't set it up via Windows' own networking software and nor does the Airport Admin Utility work under Vista. It installs and you can run it, but it returns error messages if you try and connect to the Airport Express.
I had to use a Mac to get it working, though once it's set up as a client to your existing wireless network, you can stream from iTunes on a Vista PC to the Airport Express.
The documentation is very poor, too, with this: I had to do extensive Googling first to track down the fact that I couldn't set it up with Vista and second to identify the device's IP address and default password.
Having said that, it is a breeze to set up via a Mac and works like a dream witih Vista once it's up and running. But don't bother if you have Vista until Apple updates the software.
