    I just acaquired this printer fax scanner 5610v from my son-in-law. I have windows xp3 he has the new vista and it won't work on Vista. I got a response from you and I did not have power on. Therefore the printer could not center for the cartridge. Dah !

    I have a new usb cable connector and I have the windows xp install disk. it reads for 1400,1500,and 5600 series hp printers. I installed it and I cannot get it to connect to the printer yet. I turned on printer and installed the disk . I don't know what else to do. Thanks for responding to my ink cartridge problem .

    AHHHH! Dyslexia....Color in the LEFT. Black in the RIGHT. Sorry!

    These should be the correct cartridges for your printer. Are you inserting them in the correct slots: Color in the right, black in the left?

    The printer must be ON to replace them also.

Glad the cartridge problem is resolved, now....about the driver.

First, uninstall the XP software.

Go to this site: HP5610 Vista Downloads

Download the Vista Full Feature Software and Drivers. This is a large file (163MB), so it will take a while.

When the download window opens, choose Save. If you are familiar with placing it in a Temp folder, do so. If not, just select Desktop and save it there.

Once downloaded, turn your printer on but DO NOT CONNECT THE USB CABLE.

Run (double-click) the file you downloaded. When prompted by the software, connect the USB cable.

(Refer to the Setup Guide link in the previous comment.)

That should get you going.

Note that on the download page, there is also a link to order a CD with the Vista software. I think it's about $10.

If you have any problem, comment back.

Thanks for using Fixya.

    I may have not read your problem correctly. Are you trying to install on a Vista machine or XP.

    If XP, and the install disk is indeed XP, make sure the printer is ON but the USB cable is NOT connected when you run the disk.

Having trouble fitting new ink cartridge

Hi, when an ink cartridge runs low in your HP Officejet 5610 All-in-One printer, you will see a message on the printer's display screen. Faded-looking text or pictures also indicate low ink. Ensure print quality by replacing ink cartridges when they run low.


Things You'll Need:

* HP #27 or #56 black, #22 color or #58 color photo print cartridge, or compatible equivalent

Turn printer on if it is off. Never attempt to change the ink cartridge if the printer is off. If it is off, it will not properly position or release ink cartridges, and attempting to change the ink cartridges may damage the printer.

Open the print-carriage door, located on the right side of the printer. The print carriage will automatically move into the access area.

Push down on the top edge of the cartridge you are replacing to pop it out of its slot. Remove the print cartridge and discard or recycle.

Pull off the protective tape on the new print cartridge using the pink tab. Do not touch any part of the cartridge except the black plastic. Touching the contacts or ink nozzles under the protective tape can damage the cartridge and result in poor print quality.

Hold the cartridge upright and push gently forward into the empty ink cartridge slot until it clicks.

Close the print-carriage door.
