Question about HP Photosmart 3210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Photosmart Essential Lockup

Installed Hewlett Packard Photosmart 3210 printer software driver on new Dell desk top computer with Vista Home Premium 32 Bit. All functions work except Photosmart Essential. Three percent into cataloging of photos, the function locks up. It stops at the same picture everytime. I previously installed this on an old computer with Windows 98 and it worked fine. I have had lengthy conversations with HP technical people and have reinstalled the driver for the 3210 as well as (at their suggestion) the Photosmart 7150. Nothing has helped. Also tried installing on a new Dell notebook with Vista Home Premium and got same results as above.

You probably need to uninstall and re-install the Latest Drivers for your printer

To uninstall you can do it from the Software disk you recieved with printer.
Insert the Disk in CD ROM and Click uninstall from HP Printer Menu

OR If you dont have the disk, you need to manually uninstall the Software
( Disconnect the USB cord before uninstalling )

Click START - Open Control panel - Add/remove Programs ( XP ) / Or Programs and FEatures ( Vista/Win 7 )
you will find list of HP Programs installed..

Choose one by one and uninstall these programs
1. HP Customer participation program
2. HP Imaging Device and software
3. Software and drivers for Photosmart 3200
4. HP Solution Center or HP Director
5. HP Image Zone ( or Image Zone Express / HP Photosmart Essential )
6. HP Update
7. HP Printer Drivers/Diagnostic Drivers
( after every Uninstall you will be prompted to restart the PC, you will find an option [ Click here to restart later ]. click on it and restart the PC once you completed uninstalling all the above programs )

Once you have uninstalled - click on this link to download the latest drivers by choosing your operating system

Save this File on Desktop an run it

Is the Vista is 64 Bit? since it require Digitally Signed drivers for install any device.

And your Photosmart 3210 All-in-one.

Try This link and let me know if the problem still persists.

HP Photosmart 8250 noncompatible with Windows Vista program

first download the software/drivers for the printer from the link below.

second sign in as administrator or your account may have those privledges already. during the install if there is a spot make sure that the printer is available to all users.

any other issues or it's still not working please leave a comment here ... i'll sort it out or someone more knowledgable then myself will.

One thing you may know off hand but might not have been asked. Is that a 64 bit operating system by chance... also designated as x64.
