Hi there
This can happen. Go to Control Panel > Devices and Printers.
Here you should see a hardware list of icons, including both your Kodak Hero and the XPS Writer. If the Kodak Hero is not there you will need to re-install the drivers and software from the disk which came with the printer. However, if it is there all you need to do is right click on the Kodak icon and from the menu that comes up click on "Set as default" and a green arrow should appear against the icon like this showing that the Kodak is the default printer and will show up first in any programme from which you print. When I clicked as always
Cheers

I try to print something and it takes me to a page that says save as xps file, but every time i hit save, nothing happens!


Do you have your printer properly installed in the system?

Go to control panel, printers, and see what printers you have installed. Among them there will be a "virtual" printer called "Microsoft XPS writer" - it is a special "printer" that saves your document in a special type of file. Not very useful in your case.

Do you see any other printers apart from the above mentioned? If so, then most probably the "XPS writer" is set as default printer, and you have to select the actual printer you have (I presume it will be HP Deskjet D4260, as in the topic), right-click it and choose "set as default". Then you should be able to print OK from whichever application you want to print.
Additonally, when you select File->Print from that application's menu, it will show you a window, where the chosen printer is specified; you can always open the drop-down list of printers there and select a different one (your actual printer).

If there are no other printers on the list apart from the XPS writer, it means that your printer is not installed in the system, and you have to install the driver from a CD that came with the printer. Or if you don't have the CD, go to the HP website, download and install the driver for your printer.

Good luck, and please come back with a testimonial if helped.

Avery design pro will not print with my HP C5500


I found an odd workaround. Probably a better one available, but this worked for me. When you select Print from Design Pro, in the printer drop down box select Microsoft XPS Document Writer instead of your printer. Click OK, enter a file name, and save. That will save a .xps file. Next, open the .xps file and print it.

Printer problems


hi, you mentioned that your default printer is the xps document printer. if you already have a 5300 printer icon, you can simply right-click on it and left-click on set as default printer to make it your default. but if you still dont have an icon yet, better still, call kodak tech support at 800.421.6699 so they could assist you in generating one

Photosmart 2575 printer is offline - won't print


In Vista make sure you are logged in as a administrator whenever you make any changes.

And if not to bring the printer online you will have to right click on the printer icon and right click on Run as administrator> and then try bringing the printer online and checdk if it works.

And you can delete the Microsoft XPS Document writer it is a default printer icon installed if in case you did not have a printer installed you can store them to print later.
Now that you already have a printer you can delete the Microsoft XPS Document writer.

Good Luck

Photosmart 2575 printer is offline - won't print


Good Day,

One thing you can try instead of deleting the doucment writer is to change the default printer. You can do this by right-clicking on the HP printer icon and selecting "set as default" from the drop down box. Also try turning the printer off and back on aswell as restaring the computer if you have'nt already. Did that printer ever work from that computer? How is it wired, by "switcher" do you mean a shared printer through you network(was printer sharing configured properly), or an A-B printer switch. Please clarify

Hope this helps for now

Photosmart 2575 printer is offline - won't print


Hey jonboy - You do not want to delete it. It is automatically installed with Vista. In simple terms, you know when you go to print something and it asks you questions like print all pages, print page 1, etc? Well XPS basically is there for so when you go to print, you have the option of printing to a file instead of paper. You've always had that option ( whether or not you knew it) but this is just a new way of doing it and that's why it's listed under printers. It's sort of like a virtual printer. I'll say no more about that and just hope you understood what I said. As far as the other printer, it's already selected as default, go back in where you found the printer status, right click on your Photosmart and click on use online. That should do the trick.
I hope you understood this stuff. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you still have a problem, DON'T RATE it yet just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.
