Question about HP LaserJet 1500L Color Printer

1 Answer

Printer is incompatible with Windows VISTA

HP Color LaseJet 1500 is incompatible with Vista. Will not print at all. Is there some sort of driver you can devise to make this work? HP will not assist and their response is to buy a different printer. And will the new Windows 7 system have a different effect with this printer?

    If you go to the website, and click on that printer, you will see it is not supported in VISTA. Yes, it's listed and when you pick a system, Vista is listed but if you click on it, it will tell you incompatible. In addition, if you call HP, they too have told me and will tell you that IT IS NOT compatible in VISTA.

Not according to their website, is is not incompatable.  You need to download and instal the new software and drivers for VISTA,thats all.

    Woops sorry, 
        I should have read farther. I am guessng that the next printer you purchase will not be a Hewlett Packard.  You might consider writting to them,informing them of your disatification of their choosing to no longer support your product to opperate on the most modern win OS, which has now been out well over a year. An opting to consider, downgrade to Xp.Cheaper than a new printer and some say a better,and for sure, faster version of windows.

Try and install a Windows 7 printer driver from the HP WEB site.
If a driver is not available the HP considers this printer too old or incompatible with Windows 7, maybe a Windows Vista printer driver will work but you may not get all the functions.
You can download the HP printer drivers from their supportWEB site. Please click on this link and select your model printer to download:-http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

Hp c6180 will not print from windows vista; no error message displayed on computer or printer; print queue says error printing with no explanation wireless installation hp solution center says no hp...


This means that your system does not display any printer name under the printer's list even though you would have installed your wireless printer on your Windows Vista system. This could be caused if you have not updated printer drivers in your system or the printer is incompatible with Windows Vista. Also see if the Windows firewall is blocking the printer from being recognized by your system. get more information for HP Wireless Printer Problems . Hope this helps you.

I have a problem installing hp officejet 4200 all in one series


hey there,
pretty sure the software you have was for xp, and you'll need to download newer drivers from HP that work with vista. MANY products need newer drivers to work on vista-- youre not alone.

generically, try this. the download is big, but newer

there are several sets of drivers that install when you do this (all part of the one printer driver). the drivers that print are different drivers from the ones that scan. what's happening is that it sounds like your driver is only partially installed, probably due to some incompatibility between the driver version and vista. you could also try windows update through vista, and it will check to see updated drivers for your specific printer....

Printer will not install on vista operated computer


pardon me for asking if you have downloaded the driver for Vista? pls ensure that you have done this otherwise it will not really print becuse of incompatible drivers.
or pls check if there is already a presence of a printer in your computer, then right click the proprties and hit test page.

what printer do you have?
brand and model?
do you has installed the newest driver and utility for vista operating system?
do you know that Vista and XP are incompatible in terms of drivers?

Vista has many drivers for a lots of printers, but these drivers are "generic driver". The generic driver is a small driver, an incomplete driver, and has a limited functions.
