Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Prints OK from my wireless XP laptop but gives this message when attempting to print from my wired Win 7 64 bit PC: "Printer HP Photosmart C5180 Series cannot be contacted over the network"
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.

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.

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.
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.

HP Scan Diagnostic Utility might not be available for all HP products,
particularly older products. It is available for most products, however,
and in most languages.
