Re: hp 2575 printer

Hi, I have a good news that this issue can be easily solved and HP has released a patch to fix the issue. Just download and install the patch below: =========== ============ IN the download page click on the download only button and save the patch to the computer and then install it to the computer in network that you are facing the issue with.. Once the patch is installed try to add the printer by searching it in network and then the issue will be resolved. Hope this will work for you. Regards Barret.

I have an HP Photosmart 2575 and the message "refer to device documentation" appears when I try to scan. (Printer stopped scanning with installation of updated operating system) I use Mac OS X version...

The printer scan button wouldn't work for me either. I had to install the HP Solution Center software from CD onto my Windows Vista PC then I use its scan document software button to do any scanning.

Can't install to Vista HP PSC 1210


I'm a bit confused about which printer you are using so here are the driver links for both:

HP PSC 1210:
Select the Vista OS and download.

HP 2575:
Same as above, choose Vista OS and download.

Hope this helps

How do I connect a laptop to my hp 2575

I would recommend using the built in networking. You can connect your printer to the network, then use the install disk to install it. During the install wizard, make sure to select the option for the networked (TCP/IP) connected printer. You will install the printer seperately on each machine. Alternativly, you can install the printer on one machine and share it across the network. There is a button on the Sharing tab to install additional Drivers. You use this button to install the driver for the other operating system. I hope this helps. Let me know if you need more information.
