Check with HP for a Windows 7 driver for the printer. HP Ink Jets require proper drivers to work correctly. Once you have downloaded and installed the drivers try connecting again.
If you have installed the drivers and Windows 7 still refuses to "talk" to the printer, you may have to adjust your advanced network settings as well. Open up the Network and Sharing center, click on advanced sharing settings and make sure file and printer sharing is turned on. Also check "File Sharing Connections" and enable file sharing for devices that use 40 or 56 bit encryption.
If that fails to work you may need to speak with HP support for further assistance.

SOURCE: Black ink not working on HP C5180 Photosmart

Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the printer, and replugging it after one minute has passed. If that does not work, then rerun the CD used to install the printer. Both techniques reprogram the electronics, to a certain extent.
You can also visit the HP website, to see what solutions are being offered for various printer problems. They probably have a number to call, in case you need to talk to a technician.
Hope these suggestions help you out.

SOURCE: NEED LINK FOR PHOTOSMART C5180 ALL-IN-ONE SOFTWARE FOR WIN XP

Hello,

You can find the drivers for XP here. You will find two versions of the driver. One will be the basic driver and the other will be the full feature driver that includes all of the software. If download time is not a factor I suggest the full feature driver. If it is, the basic will work.

To download:

Click driver version - Basic or full.

You will then see options to Install now which means to start the installation immediately or Download only which means to save the file to your hard drive and install later (recommended) Either option has installation instruction links below it.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

    Hi there,
    Does your printer connect to your network ok? Have you connected it to your wireless network before trying to "find" it on your laptop?
    Does your wireless network have a router/switch/firewall?

    Verify that you are connected to the correct network - check the SSID of your modem or router. Then verify that the printer is connected to that SSID as well. Check to make sure you have the correct network access number - sometimes an incorrect value gets entered. Once you've established the connection, check each computer for the printer connection of the C5180. They should say "ready" or "online" in the computers for the C5180 - reboot the computers if not.

    "printer disconnected"


    On a wireless network, if more than one device has its SSID set to hpsetup, the all-in-one may freeze or stop responding. Solution Choose a unique SSID for the HP PhotoSmart All-in-One product by following the network setup information in the Basics Guide or Network Setup Guide for your product. Cause The all-in-one may hang or freeze if multiple devices in the area have their SSID set to hpsetup.
