HP PhotoSmart 145 LCD problem

Apparently the computer in the printer is not functioning. When i turn on the printer i can not get any readout from the printer. example, it will not ask me if i want to print a index card, or will it allow me to select specific pictures to print. The printer will still print directly from the camera dock by my selecting specific photos, but this is time consuming. Is there a way to reboot the LCD in the printer? Or what suggestions do you have

SOURCE: Unable to pring 4 x 6 index cards from a Word doc.

Thanks for trying to help. Meanwhile I went to HP tech chat and went also back and forth on possible setting solutions for the HP c6180 all-in-one printer I was inquiring about. The real problem turned out to be in the Microsoft Word document settings. When I started from scratch with new document setup and selected the correct format for 4x6 index cards, the printer settings with just a couple of resettings worked fine. I was trying to control all the settings from the HP solution center and my printer settings when the real issue was to be sure to set the Word document settings correctly in the first place. thanks again.

Does the c7280 use seperate Magenta and PhotoMagenta cartridges? If so make certain the right cartridge is in the correct slot.

SOURCE: HP 7550 PhotoSmart Printer prints photos with an unpleasant green hue.

If it's a B&W or sepia photo, and you wanted to print B&W or grayscale anyway, pull the color cartridge (assuming a 2 cartridge system). I did that with my HP DJ 5440 and it works perfectly.

Scanner won't allow me to use scan to button

To use the scan features, the HP All-in-One and computer must be connected and turned on. The HP Photosmart Software must also be installed and running on your computer prior to scanning. To verify that the HP Photosmart Software is running on a Windows computer, look for the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the system tray at the lower right side of the screen, near the time.

NOTE: Closing the HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon in the Windows system tray can cause the HP All-in-One to lose some of its scan functionality. If this happens, you can restore full functionality by restarting your computer or by starting the HP Photosmart Software.

Not printing from computer to photo smart printer.

If the printer has full functionality with C4100 series driver, then keep the current driver.

If some of the functions is not working , then download updated drivers from HP website.

Photosmart 145 fix

Normal 0 Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
