No guarantees here, but this worked for me. If you are attempting to use the printer as a stand-alone, do this. Using a standard USB printer cable, connect the printer to any computer. Turn the printer on. The computer should prompt a request for the disc containing the drivers to be installed. As I don't know where my disc is, I tried to skip the process. After clicking through one or two windows, I looked at the printer screen and it was functioning normally! Perhaps the computer reset something in the printer. Your results may differ, but mine is now working like new.

Re: photosmart 145 fix
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

The 8450 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them. SD cards will work in SD and SDHC devices, but SDHC cards will not work in SD devices.
Hi All I know there''s a lot of typing here, but just wanted to be thorough
for those who may not be as handy at repairing. It really was quite
simple and only took about 10 minutes. My screen was only either blank or had black bars on top and sides of screen with all 8's in the centre of the LCD. I tried everything I found online to no avail, finally I got ********** & did what I usually do when things don't work...I took it apart (funnily enough it almost always does the trick)!
1-You'll need fairly small hex bits or allenkeys. There are 2 sets of screws both of different sizes of course.
2-Take the 2 screws from the bottom out first & that will allow enough leeway/gap to take the top silver panel off (surrounding the buttons & LCD).
3-You will find 2 more screws underneith this panel.
4-Once all 4 screws are out, you'll need a small flat-bit screwdriver or something that you can "pry" the plastic case off with. Of course I need not tell you to do this carefully so that you do not crack the plastic. There are a couple of plastic nibs to hold the plastic in place on either side of the tray, once you pry this off you will see the nibs in back.
5-Now, just pull the LCD screen straight out, it has pins that make it a plug of sorts...much like that of the old printer cables that plugged into the back of a desktop.
6-I simply blew onto the pins and into the plug-like holes in the event dust was impeding connection.
7-Then while viewing from the front of the printer I carefully lined up the pins & gently pushed until it was secure.
8-I then put the SD picture card from my camera in & turned it on before reassembling and...VOILA it worked!!
9-Obviously you put the screws back & when you are putting the top panel back on be sure to tuck the "finger-like" plastic nibs back in so as not to break them.
I hope this works for all of you!! I spent over 4 hours searching online, as I'm sure all of you did, only to find that many people had this problem with little answers. Good luck to all of you...let me know how you do Nicole
