Your application (except for the internet browser) does not point to the correct printer.

Go to System Preferences then click on Print & Fax.
If you have other printers installed, you have to remove them.

The problem is HP. The drivers they have furnished recently will support direct connect printing only under the Mac OS and not networked printing. You could try using the gimp-print, now called Gutenprint driver. You can find the basic information here:
http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/

Depending on which version of OS X you have, there may be a gimp-print driver included.

What you have to do is set the printer up as an IP printer on the remote Mac and use the IP address of the Mac it is connected to. When you get to the print using part, specify the gimp print driver, either one you already have or have downloaded. Then you will be prompted for a manufacturer, so you specify HP. You will then have to specify a model. Your printer is not directly supported, but the Deskjet 900 driver works with similar models, so try that.

I hope this helps.

Reinstall the printer drivers using the provided install disk, or download the driver from hp website if you have lost the disk, this should fix the problem.

Sounds like the color cartridge is overheating. Could be defective, ESPECIALLY if it not an original Hp BRAND NEW cartridge. Change out the color cartridge and see what happens. Each tiny little nozzle has its own heating element. Electronics monitor the temperature. Will stop the printing until the temperature comes back to an acceptable range. Ed
