I suggest you delete the printer HP5600 (right-click on the icon and select delete). Then, download the driver from the link below :

http://www.userdrivers.com/Printer/HP-LaserJet-4240-4250-4350-PCL-6-Driver-for-Windows/download/

Reinstall the printer.

Hi,
uninstall the printer by using its uninstall in your start /programs /hp/uninstall . HP always has its own UNINSTALL.
When thats done disconnect the printer from your computer and reboot.
Now run the install again, being careful to read the screens and make the right selections and do not plug it in to the computer until it tells you to.

HP has very good install programs. Connecting the printer to the computer at the right time is important. Assuming you have no other previous printers installed, you may have just accidentally hit something on your keyboard at just the wrong time.*s* It happens to the best of us.

By doing a clean install as described above, you should be able to load it successfully. Good luck *s*

plug the printer into your computer via a USB cable and turn it on. The "add new hardware" message should appear. Keep pressing "next" and it should search for the appropriate software and install it for you. Good luck.

Will HP 60 ink cartridge work with HP Deskjet 2460? Tnx.


This is all HP recommends for the HP Deskjet 2460, so I wouldn't suggest buying anything else. First of all it might not fit and second, even if it fits, other issues may come with using those. If you can't see the list here it is:
HP 21 Black HP 21 Black Twinpack HP 21/22 Black/Color Combo HP 21/22 Quad Pack HP 22 Tri-color Twinpack HP 22 Tricolor HP 58 Photo

Hi,

Try the steps given in the below document.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c00587637

Also try the following resets and check

Perform a partial reset

A partial reset will return user settings to factory defaults. On some models, language and country/region settings are also reset. Perform a partial reset of the product by following the instructions below.


* Unplug the power cord from the unit.

* Reconnect the power cord into the unit.

* When the lights begin to flash, press and hold the On/Resume and Paper Size buttons.

* When only the On/Resume light is flashing, release the buttons.

* When the On/Resume light is steady, the reset is complete.
