Now I argue with their recommendation of choosing an LPT port during set up. If you haven't done it they way they suggest, I would recommend doing it that way first and see what the results are. If you have, and it doesn't work, follow the same steps, but choose the Ne0 USB port in the steps.
I have fooled systems this way before. And that is one of the nice thing about HP drivers, they can be used for a number of different applications. (I've installed Sharp copiers using HP5 drivers).

I've seen this before with these printers. They will print a test page ok but nothing from the computer. Reload the driver. In fact go to the HP website and download the newest driver and install it. This should solve your problem. You should find your drivers here http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/siteHome?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us Let me know if you need anything else.
I think that the printer driver that you installed in your computer is not a driver for Vista. I checked the supported operating systems and it's compatible with Win 2000 upto Win XP.
BUT, I saw this on a site:
Windows Vista HP Deskjet 656c Printer driver utility.
Meaning that there's is a possibility that HP has a Vista driver for your printer. You need to contact HP and ask them where can you get the Vista driver for your printer. I had a feeling that it's the only way that would make the printer work.
You need to go to 'Printers' in Windows, and click on the document in the window to highlight it. Then one of the menu items gives you the option of deleting it. Turning the machine off does not stop it because the print is held in Windows until the printer says 'thanks, done that', and if Windows senses that the print sequence has failed it simply tries again - and this happens, of course, when you turn the printer off and on again. Werry irritating.
Vista has most drivers, and certainly supports your printer. Try this routine. First turn on your computer. Now, turn on printer, and connect the USB. Vista will recognize it. i) Go to printers and faxes and set your printer as default, because there are other software like One note which could be default. OR ii) Go to your word document, ctrl+P for print settings, choose your printer from the drop down menu
gave hint to use hp deskjet 5400 driver instead of the hp business inkjet 2230 driver i have been trying for days with my Netgear PS101 printserver
(v1?). Finally works, at least for a complete looking test page and the
preferences for the 5400 printer seem clearer than those given for the 2230. maybe that is why print servers and printers are not working...it is the driver supplied by HP is wacko for vista?
it could be a vitsa compatiblity problem,most likely u need to check and make sure its your default printer,if it is check print head on cartridge,if it sound like its printing and nothing shows up it the print head,try new cartridge.
I had the same problem. I could print, but not scan.
However, if you open up Paint and go to file and scan, it will scan your document. For some reason, using the scan button on the printer itself will not work with Vista, but using Paint will. I also heard that using Windows fax and scan will also work.
