Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

My hp deskjet D2500 was given to me in a warranty exchange 3 days ago. I have bought a usb cable for it and everything hooks up well, although when i go to use it a box pops up on the computer saying "install driver software", i was never given an installer cd or anything similar - just the printer - what do i do? Is there something i am able to download, preferably at no extra expense? Thankyou.

Check and make sure your printer is defined in the printer setup, and is selected as the default printer.

Alternately you can download the printer drivers at
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=3571291&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

and re-install the printer. From the computer being off, make sure the printer is on, and USB cable attached, then turn the computer on. The OS should detect the printer on boot, and automatically install the drivers, or you can install them manually from the downloaded drivers referred to above.

HP Deskjet D1560 is not printing at all although it did print a couple of days ago. The ink is fine. Its just not printing. I have tried to disconnect the printer and wait for some time, have rebooted and...


There are 3 possible causes why your printer won't print.
  1. printer is offline
  2. there are print jobs stuck in the queue
  3. USB cable not detected
Download and install the HP print diagnostic utility to help you identify and fix the problem. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&lc=en&jumpid=ex_r4155/hho/ipg/ccdoc/printer_diag/&lang=en&softwareitem=mp-91788-1
The print diagnostic utility addresses connectivity,spooler,printer online status,device manager,print queue,port,driver,conflicts and default printer. The tool provides a fix button which you can click on to correct the problem.If it shows connectibity problem,you may need to unplug/replug the usb cable or uninstall/reinstall the software.

Hi ,
One side of the lead is designed to fit on the computer , the other one on your HP unit . If nothing fits on any side , you need to go back to your retailer where a correct cable will be given to you , in exchange for the previous one .
Best regards .

How can i install my hp deskjet d2560? when the time i bought my hp printer it has cd instalation driver but the cd has d2500 series so i go to the net and download the driver for d2560, but when i...


The same driver software is used by the D2500 printer series, of which your D2560 is one model. So the "D2500 series" drivers are correct.

Make sure you downloaded the correct drivers for your Vista version, 32-bit or 64-bit. The links are to the HP site drivers page for your printer. Also, HP printers often will not work if you connect the printer before installing the drivers. The setup guide and CD both mention this, but it is sometimes overlooked. Try uninstalling the HP software and following the process again, and make sure the printer is not connected until you are instructed to connect it.

These steps will install the proper drivers so Vista can use the printer. If the printer still is not working, please post a follow-up comment with more information: error messages, indicator lights, print quality problems, etc.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!
