I too uses 8.1. There is no problem with my system or printer. Do a disc clean-up function by Windows; and check. Don't switch OFF the printer while doing disc cleanup procedure. I assume; you know to do this. Wish you a Happy X'mas

SOURCE: HP Officejet pro l7580 magenta won't print, new HP cartridge 8/11

At first my black wouldn't print. I cleaned the print head, replaced the cartridge and black will not print. Now, to test the other colors I tried to copy an article with color photos and it's all blurry as well.

I receive no error messages and would hate to spend $70 on a new print head when this may not be the problem.

I had the same problem, found out that you should not install the disk that came with the printer. If you do it won't scan. The drivers are already in Mac OSX. You have to uninstall whatever you installed...throw the disk away. To scan go to System Preferences, click printer, then scanner button and it works. Hope this helps!

Hp deskjet 1010 won't print with only black cartridge installed. They tell me it will and then suggest I buy a color cartridge anyway. I need to print now. How can I do this?

I am sorry to hear that you cannot get the Deskjet 1010 to print on your Windows XP computer. I will try my best to help you resolve this issue.
I recommend using this document forUSB Printer Installation Troubleshooting. After doing the disk clean up, I recommend doing a re-register of the windows installer.
To Re-register Windows Installer
Click Start, click Run , type MSIEXEC /UNREGISTER , and then click OK .
NOTE:Even if you do this correctly, it might look like nothing happens, but it does.
Click Start, and then click Run .
In the Run window, type MSIEXEC /REGSERVER , and then click OK .
Then follow the rest of the steps in order. Be sure to restart after installing before trying to print.
I hope this information helps, please let me know how it goes. Hope It's resolve all Your Printer Problem,

Just bought a NetGear WNDR 3400 router and used the set-up wizard. Set-up was successful and two my two laptops are commiunicating with the router and I am able to get on the internet. I can't get an HP...

Is the printer software installed on the laptops? Are you trying to print from the laptop itself, or a phone or tablet?
Sounds like from what you said the devices are on the network, but they still need the correct software to communicate with each other.

Try to use a smartphone and install the HP mobile printing app, if that app is able to find your printer, it is indeed on the network correctly.

If you can print from the phone/tablet, but not the laptops, you need to install the software drivers for your printer to your laptop(s) you wish to print from.

HP Deskjet F380 All-in-One Compatible with vista

I had the same problem. I could print, but not scan.

However, if you open up Paint and go to file and scan, it will scan your document. For some reason, using the scan button on the printer itself will not work with Vista, but using Paint will. I also heard that using Windows fax and scan will also work.
good luck
