Question about HP PSC 1210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP printer starts and stops when printing from the web.

My printer worked perfectly until abt a month ago and then I found that when I printed something from the internet it started and stopped every 2 or 3 seconds before the page was completely printed. I did contact HP who gave me instructions to reset by pulling out the plug and power and replacing it. Also to add another driver, but not to use the printer as my default. I did everything but it's still doing it. I hope someone can help me as I am so frustrated by this. Thank you so much.

Try this test...when on internet, hit the "Print screen" key on your keyboard (may be shift-Print screen). then open wordpad and paste the screen-shot using [ctrl-v]. try to print...any change? if so, then try to disable your firewall or anti-virus to print.

My HP Deskjet F380 has the latest printing software installed; it spools and is attached to my laptop in the correct USB port; but it doesn't print. The message is "no connection." It printed...

Verify that the USB connection is fully inserted in the back of the printer itself. If all is well there, try to think if you've run any updates on your laptop recently, or installed any new software that could be conflicting. If yes, try removing the new software or recent updates, and try a test print. If this still does not work, try disconnecting the printer, powering down your machine, starting it back up and then reconnecting the printer to the USB port. Sometimes you have have a glitch in the USB port that causes your computer to stop recognizing a device seemingly out of nowhere. If none of the above seems to help, it might be as simple as a USB cable that's become faulty. Hope this helps!

Problem printing to Aticio 3235C from new HP laptop networked through office server. Other laptops work fine. This laptop worked fine until a month ago when it stopped saving Valid Access code. So now...

There are a couple of steps to be performed to verfiy whether your laptop is handshaking with the newtwork printer. First assign the printer with a Static IP address. This information is provided in the administartor guide of the printer.This setting can usually be found in the network settings of the printer.
Please set the subnet mask, and the default gateway. This info is found in your PC. Click start, Run, type in CMD, and new black window will pop up, type ipconfig/all press enter, this will show all the network information you will need for this. This was the printer communicating with your PC from the printer.Now the other way round.First delete the old driver of the printer and reinstall the driver. Most manufactures provide an automated click next type of install software. You can search their website for the the drivers.After reinstalling now try to print.

Let us know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for contacting

Go into your control pannel and open up "Printers". Right click on the printer you are using and select "Properties". In the box that comes up choose "advanced"
In the middle of the menu box there should be "Spool print documents so program finishes printing faster" below it is "Print directly to the printer"
Change the option to Print directly and then press Apply at the bottom, this will get rid of the "Serial Job Number" that comes up before printing. :o)

I have an HP Photosmart Premium C3009 all-in-one printer. Sometimes it refuses to print with a message that says: The process stopped unexpectedly with status 1. I've looked in the manual and find no...

I also experienced the "process 'mdns' stopped unexpectedly with Status 1" message a few days ago with my new HP 7250, and found two solutions. Here are a couple of potential cures:

I downloaded the shareware program 'Printer Setup Repair', then ran their 'Reset and Backup' routine. Restarted, and bingo! Printing was successful. But trying to run either the HP scan software or the HP Ink Widget from Dashboard were not so successful. Got a 'Scanner not found' message. I then went to the printer, tried doing a manual scan there, sending the scan to my PowerBook. Once again, bingo. The scan was sent to my computer, and now the HP software could see the printer. I've since restarted both my computer and the printer several times; printing and scanning are working fine.

Now the second way to fix the problem. It's kind of hokey, but it seems to work, and is what led me to the The process 'mdns' stopped unexpectedly" with Status 1" problem in the first place. What you do is just add an ethernet router, that one you have lying around the house somewhere, between your DSL or cable modem and your Airport modem. Huh?

Here's the deal: when I first bought my HP multifunction printer, my wireless setup was this: Cable modem>Xsense ethernet router>Airport extreme. Unpacked and hooked up the HP printer, and it all worked immediately, perfectly. Print, scan, check supply levels, all no problem. Way too easy. Then, about a week ago I realized that the Xsense ethernet router that I had in the chain was really superfluous, as we no longer use ethernet in the house; might as well eliminate that unnecessary link in the chain. So I changed my setup to a simple: Cable modem>Airport extreme. At this point printing stopped. Tried everything I could think of, no go. Always got the "process ' mdns' stopped unexpectedly with Status 1" message. Put the ethernet router back in the chain, printing/scanning went perfectly. This made absolutely no sense to me, but it worked.

Left my setup with the extra router for a day or two until I remembered about the shareware program 'Printer Setup Repair', described above.

Before doing any of these steps it's probably a good idea to run Disk Permissions (I always run it before and after any installation), just to be sure you're authorized to be using the HP software.

Good luck!
