You need to run installation CD supplied with the printer before connecting the pronter, When you run cd you will be prompted to connect printer at a certain stage. Make sure printer is plugged into the mains and powered on when you do this.And complete installation with cd

If you do not have cd get drivers and utilities from hp website.

If it will still not be recognised try and connect that to different USB port. (it depends on your usb ports configuration, some of them might not recognise that as locked to different devices)
If printer will still not be recognised can you tell if you can see lights on the printer?

If still not ok on PC click on start -> control panel->system->device manger. In device manager select Universal serial bus controllers. right click on each of them and select option to uninstall. Reboot PC and start installation from CD from scratch.

If this will not resolve the problem try and connect printer to another PC.

If it will not be recognised - contact HP for service. This is hardware problem and printer need to be repaired.

Hp photosmart c3150 keeps color light and check cartridge light keeps bliking after replacing with a new one.


It sounds like you ink cartridge is electrically bad; you can run the diagnostic 'tap 41' test to confirm. The HP 31xx printer 'access procedure' will be very similar to this HP Fxxx series access procedure:

Printer HP Photosmart C5180 Series cannot be contacted over the network


Check with HP for a Windows 7 driver for the printer. HP Ink Jets require proper drivers to work correctly. Once you have downloaded and installed the drivers try connecting again.
If you have installed the drivers and Windows 7 still refuses to "talk" to the printer, you may have to adjust your advanced network settings as well. Open up the Network and Sharing center, click on advanced sharing settings and make sure file and printer sharing is turned on. Also check "File Sharing Connections" and enable file sharing for devices that use 40 or 56 bit encryption.
If that fails to work you may need to speak with HP support for further assistance.

My hp photosmart c3150 just prints blank pages what do i do


Hi,
Turn the printer on and off. Disconnect the usb connections and restart your PC.
Turn the printer on and try printing.
Check the cartridges.They maybe low on ink or even dry.
If the cartridges are fine,remove the black cartridge from its slot on the right and check its nozzles for damages.Make sure the plastic tape usually on it when new has been fully removed.Slide the cartridge back into the slot and push it forward till it clicks.Please do the same with the other cartridge.
Remember to replace any used cartridges.


Hope this helps.Thanks!

Every time I turn on my HP Photosmart C3150 printer, it prints an alignment page as if I had just installed a new cartridge.


You might look at the track bar or around the side where the cartridges return. Your printer probably isn't registering a full return on the idle position. See if a switch is dirty / stuck or foreign matter might be blocking it's "home"

Want to unistall hp c3150 because it did not work when i go to remove it does not say hp all in one series is says hp photosmart office jet 7.0a is that what we want to remove. So we can start all over...


You can go to Start>All Programs>HP and look for an uninstall selection for the installed printer. If there is other HP software (Essentials, etc.) uninstall them also.

Then go to Start>Printers and Faxes. Right click on any printer icon present and select Delete.

Unplug the usb cable from the printer (or computer) and reboot the computer.

Remember...DO NOT connect the usb cable until the software prompts you.

Here is the HP Support page for your printer for added info.
