In control panel check that 1) you have a check mark next to the printer you have installed so it is the default printer. 2) If this is set up correctly I'd uninstall the printer and reinstall the software and drivers again. Some times we click next before really reading what its asking. Hope this helps

Printing failed



This is usually caused by corrupted printer drivers. It's most often seen after an upgrade from a previous operating system when the printer was kept connected and turned on during the upgrade.

Solution: Completely Uninstall and Reinstall your Printer and 'force' XP to see new drivers:

Step 1
Disconnect the printer from the PC

Step 2
Go to the Control Panel and click on Add/Remove Programs. Highlight any Printer Software that is listed here. Select Remove.

Step 3
From the Control Panel, click on Printers & Faxes. Right click the printer in question and select Delete

Step 4
Look at the Toolbar. Select File, then Server Properties. Look in the Drivers tab. Highlight the printers drivers listed here and click on Remove for each one.

Step 5
Reboot the PC. Do NOT reconnect the printer!

Step 6
Go to the website of your printer manufacturer. Look for new XP drivers for your model. Download the correct software. If there are no Windows XP drivers for your printer, try looking for ones for Windows 2000. In most cases these will do almost as well.

Step 7
Run the exe file you just downloaded. It should auto-start the installation program

Step 8
The software will tell you when to connect the printer.

Step 9
Once the software is installed and the printer connected, try a test page. Top printer service

My computer stopped recognizing my hp psc1350 and it won't print


If this is not hardware problem then most probably the driver is corrupt.
First uninstall the printer completely using the procedure below (taken from HP website).

Uninstalling the software
Use the following steps to uninstall the software:

1.Disconnect the USB or parallel cable from the all-in-one.
2.Click Start , click Programs (click All Programs in Windows XP), click HP , select the all-in-one product folder, and then click Uninstall . Follow the directions that appear.
The basic device drivers have been removed after completing this step. If you were having problems with connectivity or the basic print or scan drivers, you may reconnect the all-in-one at this point to reinstall it. If the problem is not corrected or if you had other problems, continue to the next step.
3.Open the Windows Control Panel by following these steps:
* Windows 98, Me and 2000: Click Start , click Settings , and then click Control Panel .
* Windows XP: Click Start and then click Control Panel .
4.Click Add/Remove software (click Add or Remove Software in Windows XP).
5.In the list of installed programs, locate and select HP Photo and Imaging 3.0 or HP Image Zone , and then click Remove . Restart the computer after uninstalling if prompted.
6.In the list of installed programs, locate and select HP Software Update , and then click Remove .
7.In the list of installed programs, locate and select Memories Disk Creator 2.0 , and then click Remove .

Reinstall using updated drivers from the link (for XP)

If windows vista then it will install the drivers automatically on connecting the printer

Pixma IP3000 will not print


try to do this set of instruction & solution:

  1. Go to Start | Control Panel | Printers And Other Hardware | Printers And Faxes. Double-click the icon for your printer to open the Documents window and clear any pending print jobs by selecting Cancel All Documents from the Printer drop-down menu
  2. Try printing a test page from the printer, not from Windows XP. Most printers have a built-in test function that's activated by holding down one or more buttons while the printer is starting up. Check your printer's user manual for instructions. If this page prints successfully, you know the problem is either with your connection or with the software in your computer.
  3. Check your printer's USB or parallel connection.
  4. Try printing something simple from Windows' Notepad. To open Notepad, go to Start | All Programs | Accessories | Notepad, type a few lines of text in a document, and try printing it. If it successfully prints, the problem is with the software program you originally tried to print from.
  5. Try printing using Windows XP's generic printer driver. Open and run the Add Printer Wizard. When you get to the Install Printer Software screen, select Generic under Manufacturer and Generic/Text Only under Printers (see Figure 2).
  6. Select No for Do You Want To Use This Printer As The Default Printer? (see Figure 3). Click Next.
  7. When prompted on the next screen, tell Windows XP to print a test page. If the page successfully prints, then you probably have a problem with your installed printer driver. Either update or reinstall the driver.

1020 PRINTER DRIVER HP


There are no drivers for fixya but I have found a workaround by some anonymous poster


Xp software&drivers will work in Vista after a little tweaking in printer properties.


1)Install the CD-Rom HP Software/Drivers that came with your Printer at the time you purchased it. These Xp software&drivers are Vista Compatible after tweaking the Printer Properties. Reboot after installing.


2)Goto Start/Printers. Right click HPLaserJet1020 then Left click Properties. An HPLaserJet Properties window should have popped up.


3)Click the Advanced Tab. Click the Print Processor button located at bottom of window.


4)Select print processor as>>>IMFPrint. Then Select Default Data Type as>>>RAW. Click OK.


5)Now return to the Main HPLaserJet Properties window and click the General Tab. On the Bottom of that window; Click the Print Test Page Button. Finished! A test page should be printing out if you adjusted the printer properties correctly. Enjoy!


optionally you may have to disable print spooling

Quote "This did not work for me until I changed the option in that same window (advanced settings) to "print directly to the printer". Spooling does not work. "
