Scanner has a lock on it that sounds like it needs to be unlocked. See user manual for info on where scanner lock is if it has one.

My PC runs on Vista, is that too old? It's partly installed because if I try to print I get asked where I want to save the XPS file. And there isn't any other printer option. Please help.

Unfortunately, Vista was a poor operating system when it was new. It sounds like Word is trying to "print" to an .xps file rather than to your printer.
  1. Open Printers by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Printers.
  2. Right-click the printer you want to use, and then click Set as Default Printer. (you should see your HP All in One Listed there.

Why is my samsung clp making a clicking noise?

Is the printer making a clicking sound when it is printing? Or is it just making a clicking sound but there are no light and the printer appears to be dead except making a clicking sound?

I know of a cause for either case.

Case 1. It is clicking when printing. Sometimes the toner cartridges are not seated properly in the imaging unit, and causes the gear on the cartridge to slip making a clicking sound as the gear is being turned. Try pulling out the cartridges and try turning the gear. It should turn smoothly without binding. If it binds, there is not much you can do about it except replace it when it goes empty. Reinsert the cartridge and check that it inserted completely into the imaging unit.

Case 2. Printer is dead, not printing except making a clicking sound. This is due to the power supply board failure. Usually the failure is due to a blown filter capacitor on the power supply board. The power supply is located on the right side of the printer. Remove the right side panel to get access to the board. The board can be either repaired or replaced. Hope this helps you.

It probably is. When you turn on a printer the machine goes thru a power on reset. Th main board checks different areas of the machine. You should be getting an error code are you?
