HP PSC 2175 All-In-One Will not print anything

My HP PSC 2175 All In One will not print anything, not a test page, not a printer report from the front panel on the printer. I have uninstalled the printer and reinstalled it with drivers from the HP website for Vista. I have unplugged the USB cord and rebooted the system, then plugged it back in too. I have also had Vista look for issues, and it says everything is compatible and the drivers are up to date. I have tried all your fixes online, and to no avail. Any suggestion?

My printer hp psc 2175 doesn't print, scan and copy. I don't know what can I do. Help me please !


Hello There,

First things first, is it turning on?? If it does, then hold the power button for like 30 seconds so we can power cycle it.

Next is, do a test print;

  1. On the front panel of the product, press Menu (or Setup) .
  2. Press the Right Arrow until Print Reports displays, and then press Enter, Start, or OK .
  3. Press the Right Arrow until Self-Test Report displays, and then press Enter, Start, or OK .
if it prints a test page, all you got to do is to go to HP.com and download their diagnostic utilities from the soft ware and drivers tab.

if it doesnt, id recommend for you to reinstall the software that comes with it.

Please feel free to leave a testimonial if this works and please do not forget to click 4 thumbs.

Cheers!

Check to make sure that when you give the print command that the HP 2175 is the printer the document is aimed for...not XPS or some other printer on your system.

good luck

Smeary Printing


Hi.
Align the print cartridges by going to the mentenance/align cartridges tab - in the printer menu, then print a diagnostic/configuration page from the reports tab.

U'll find there all the colours that the printer is using along with other ones.

if there is a problem "after allignment" tell me

Slow Printing


Hi, The slow printing issue can occure even if the cartridges are out or low in ink try to check the print function by the stand alone unit by printing a self test page Here are the steps to print a self test page: On the front panel of the product, press Menu (or Setup) . Press the Right Arrow until Print Reports displays, and then press Enter, Start, or OK . Press the Right Arrow until Self-Test Report displays, and then press Enter, Start, or OK . If the self test page takes less time to print and if all the color blocks and black block print fine the ink level are fine. if the time for self test is also more try to clean the cartridge contacts and replace the cartridges if needed this will fix the issue. If the printer works fine as stand alone self test and copy try to performe the steps in the below webpage: ========== http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00093466&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=2512010&rule=10185&lang=en ========== If the issue is still un fixed try to set the print directly settings in the printer properties Click on start >> control panel >> printer and faxes >> there look for the HP printer icon with the check mark and right click on it and select properties and then click on advance tab and under it select the print directly to printer and click on apply and ok to save the settings. Once done try to print and check with the issue. Hope this will fix the issue. Regards, Barret.

Printer issue


I can only suggest that you should use genuine HP ink carts. Try all new carts and realign again. Hopefully it is under warranty. HP is good at exchanging.
