Question about HP PhotoSmart 145 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Photosmart 145 fix

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.

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

My Canon iP90 has been working perfectly but now won't work at all. Nothing. Not a bleep. The green light's on and I've done all the utility checks and they're fine. I've tried turning...


Hi.
If you had done utility check and they are fine, had you try printing on a stand alone not using a computer. if you can print on a stand alone, there is no problem on the hardware side of the printer because u were able to print on a stand alone. you can focus now on the software side by uninstalling and re installing the driver of the printer and that should work.

I am using a stand alone photosmart 8450 ( with out computer ) it will print every memory card except SDHC the cards are fine as I use them in my Pentax camera


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.

Jammed scanner


Please make stand alone copy from your unit and verify whether the unit scan properly. If not please perform the steps provided in the following HP web link:

If the issue persists, please replace your printer as this is a hardware issue with the scanning mechanism.

How do you clean the ink jets


if it isn't broken, don't fix it. I would leave well enough alone until the printer starts giving you trouble.

Scanner needs camera device fixed -


Are you using this as stand alone or through the computer? Whichever try the other way - If standalone try it through the computer. If in the computer try stand alone. If in the computer re install software. If all the variations do not cure it then its good bye to that one and onto the next - there is nothing that will fix.
