Question about HP PSC 1210 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I just got a new laptop and I'm trying to use my hp psc 1210. It worked fine with my old computer, only now when I plug it into the usb port my computer doesnt even seem to recognize that it's there. I can't print anything, and the hp.com site says that I don't need a driver download for Vista, that vista will recognize when I plug the usb into the port
I had a similar problem! Here is what eventually worked for me, after searching through postings for hours on end...
First, I made sure I had the new driver. Second, (and this might be different for you), my computer recognized my printer, but any time I sent something to print, it never made its way there. The little printer icon at the bottom said 1 document pending, then quickly said 0 documents pending, but nothing ever printed. When I ran HP diagnostics, it said everything was okay with the printer, and even printed a test page! But still nothing from any other program. So, eventually I went to control panel, then printers, then I clicked on the HP printer, then right clicked and went to properties. I changed two things in here, and I'm not sure which one was the solution. First, I changed the security settings (in the security tab) so that every user had access to all options for the printer. Second, on the advanced tab, I selected print directly to printer instead of the spool print documents option. And tada it worked!
May not solve anyone elses problem, but I didn't see this solution in any of the posting sites, so I thought I'd share it. Give it a try!
