Question about HP Photosmart C6280 Printer

1 Answer

HP Photosmart C6280: Not printing from M.S. Word.

I bought this little beauty several months ago, seeing as how I own an HP computer, I thought it would be sweet....

Basically, when I attempt to print from Word, the message "Windows cannot print due to a problem with the current printer setup." This bewilders me, as I can print a "Diagnostic Exam," yet not anything else.

Another tangent question, possibly the reason why this isn't working...
The printer is C6280, but the installation disc says "C6200" as is the printer recognized as 6200. I have no idea about this, any help or insite would be greatly appreciated!

Highlight the printer in the printer setup area, and click open, and delete all print jobs.

Once properly deleted, it can not re-appear..
