Normal 0 Go to Control Panel and click on Sound.
Next click Bluetooth Devices.
Click Add button, lower left corner of the Bluetooth Devices window.
Insure batteries are installed.
Press the Connect Button on the Keyboard (Usually located on the under side of your keyboard) this allows Windows to see the keyboard so you can pair the keyboard to the computer.
On the computer choose My Device Is Set Up and Ready To Be Found.
Click NEXT.
The keyboard should appear in the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard Window.
Select your Keyboard and click Next.
When prompted, select Choose a Passkey For Me and click Next.
Windows will generate and display a Passkey.
Type the Passkey specified on the Bluetooth Keyboard
(do not use the keyboards keypad when typing the passkey)
No charters will appear on the monitor when typed, but if you make a mistake, you can backspace.
You must enter the Passkey within 30 seconds.
If you don’t enter the Passkey within 30 seconds, click Back and click Next again.
Once the Passkey is entered, the Keyboard should be connected to the computer.
Finish and follow any on screen instructiond.

Hope this helps. Bud

Why Why is my hp photosmart C5580 All In One printer printing words backwards


Hello,

May i know which application are you using to print from ?
I guess "Mirror printing" is enabled , hence you are getting its desired effect.
Open a Notepad and print, let me know if issue still persists.

HP photosmart C5580 wireless printing problem


You laptop will not be able to connect to the printer using the bluetooth technology. But the good news is that you can use the printer thru your home network by having the desktop that the printer is connected to be part of the same home network that your laptop is part of and then share your printer on our desktop and then select it as a printer to use on your laptop.
This link has instructions for all of your home network instructions.

HP Photosmart C5500 series CD will not install completely


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