Question about HP OfficeJet 4215 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Installation Error I recently bought a new computer (HP Pavilion a1540n) with Windows XP Media Center Edition. My printer was working fine with my previous computer but when I try to install it on my new PC, it tells me that a newer software update is available and proceeds to install the update automatically. Then I get an error saying that I have a hardware failure or that the hardware is not working properly. I then try to update the drivers and it tells me that the driver installed is the most recommended. If I change it anyway then I get a driver error. I would greatly appreciate any help an support with this issue. Tito

C++ Runtime Error for Dell Photo AIO 962 printer dlbxmon.exe

I had the same problem and was able to fix it by following the instructions in this link:

Apparently, the regular uninstall procedure does not completely uninstall the software drivers. Then, if new drivers or software are installed, a conflict is created between the old drivers and the new drivers. You have to first run the DellXPCleanUpUtility to completely clean out the old software drivers. Then, you can install the new drivers successfully.

HP OJ 5610 Drivers-? Can not install printer.

In this case, there's no mystery as to the cause of the problem. You will be unable to use this printer with your operating system because there are no existing print drivers that work with 64 bit Vista. Your printer will work with Windows 98, Windows 2000, and Windows XP, but not with Vista at all.

You have only two options...use a different HP printer that will work with Vista, or get a PC that has one of the supported operating systems on it and connect your current printer to that PC.

Sorry. I know this isn't the answer you were looking for, but that's the best I can do until the proper drivers become available.

The scanner and camera wizard is a portion of Windows XP & Vista.

If you go into the control panel, you'll find it in there. If you double click on it, it should locate your scanner and you should have functionality this way.

If you're pressing the scan button on your printer and getting this information, try opening HP Solution Center and clicking "Scan Picture" in there and see if it is any different.
