Photosmart 7660 has 4x6 photo paper in it but it is not loading and out of paper keeps coming on.


Have you loaded paper on correct side or it will not detect the paper. Ensure you have also selected the paper size in the print options menu.

Okay, I have a hp photosmart 7350 (yes I know its old) but it works perfectly. Anyway, Im currently using vista and they discontinued the original driver disc that came with the printer. So HP recommends...


Sorry but you are out of luck. This is the only driver that you can use. I had the very same problem with a HP 7660 on Vista. You are lucky it will work at all. I finally just bit the bullet and bought a new Canon printer. I paid about what a set of ink cartridges were for my old HP 7660. I now have a printer that is Vista compatible that works as designed. You can keep beating your head against the wall as I did for 1 year or just get another printer and be happy.

I looked it up and it is indeed compatible but before you buy a new one try this link:

You should be able to use the printer with vista once you download the utility the program recommends.

Due to my technical incompetance I wasn't able to download Crossloop quickly. Too many windows opened and I lost contact with your technician. I'm going to replace the HP Photosmart 7660 Printer with a new printer/scanner with current technology.
