Need help installing printer

When I got my newest computer I opted to use the printer that I had with the prior one (to use up the ink!) Now I wish to install the printer that came with the newer computer and don't know what to do! I'm 77 years old and not very computer literate!! Thanks!

    Thank you so much, Dirinda! I would so appreciate a walk through! There was no CD with this printer, and, since I reinstalled the older printer in the new computer, I don't mind having two printers installed, I just don't know how to add this one! (HP D1430) And I don't have any directions in the quick start guide on how to do that!

    Sorry!! It's an HP Deskjet D1430

    Dirinda, I hope I'm not being a pain in the "you-know", but I have unexpected company and can't do any more tonight!! Can yu tell me how to get the drivers for Vista, or will you be there tomorrow??

No problem. Just insert the CD that came with new printer, install as per directions. You don't have to worry about the old printer being installed, you can have multiple installed @ same time. If you no longer have the instructions ( quick start guide) for your new printer just let me know, I'll walk you through it.
If you would like to uninstall the old printer that's easy too. Leave comment here & I'll help you.

I forgot how to change the ink cartridge on my printer i dont rember where it is please help

If you go to the below link -

Canon MP530 manual

and look at pages 44 - 46 it shows you how to change the ink cartridges. Just bear in mind the page takes a while to load as its a 4mb pdf so it will just stay black for a while until it downloads.

Thx, if this solution helps please rate :)

L lost my Epson stylus T10 installation CD. I cann't install it to my new Laptop. Help!

Go to the Epson website, look for support on printers, enter your model number. Download the newest driver for your printer and then install it. You may need to unplug your USB Printer prior to installing the driver. You also may have to delete the previous driver by deleting the Epson Printer Icon in your "printer and faxes" folder. Good Luck, it not difficult but it does involve a few steps.

Won't print on Vista operating system

I've seen this before with these printers. They will print a test page ok but nothing from the computer. Reload the driver. In fact go to the HP website and download the newest driver and install it. This should solve your problem. You should find your drivers here Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks for using FixYa

Showing Check Ink U051 COL. Have removed the

Hi there

For troubleshooting purposes,
Perform the following:

1. Open the printer and remove all ink tanks.

2. Insert a single ink tank in the printer then close the cover.

3. Confirm whether the printer recognizes the installed tank
properly. If it does, it will indicate it does not detect the other ink tanks, as
they are not currently installed in the printer.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 with another ink tank.

5. If the printer at any time indicates two of the same ink tanks are
installed, the cause will be the last tank installed. For example, if
you inserted an ink tank earlier, and you later inserted another ink
tank, and it said two of the same inks were installed, the cause of
the issue is the last ink tank.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Paper keeps going through without printing. Have followed ALL of Epson's trouble shooting with no results. will make copies of a paper but will not print from computer.

Uninstall and reinstall the printers.Prior to installation disconnect your printer from your computer. Run the setup for your printer and connect printer and computer only when told to do so. In the future give model number and operating system that you employ, (win XP or VIsta) and I could have tracked down the exact drivers you need, I would download the newest driver available, it may just contain a fix for no ink on page syndrome ...I'll get you started, use the link below ....This should fix it...

Ink in hp photosmart 3310

the printer should have software installed enabling you to opt, for a printer-ink cartridge change.
If the cartridge has a chip fitted, it may be discharged.
The chip is supposed to be charged up, for the printer to recognise the newly installed cartridge.
view your settings in control panel/printer/properties to see what options you have available.
