If this is not hardware problem then most probably the driver is corrupt.
First uninstall the printer completely using the procedure below (taken from HP website).

Uninstalling the software
Use the following steps to uninstall the software:

1.Disconnect the USB or parallel cable from the all-in-one.
2.Click Start , click Programs (click All Programs in Windows XP), click HP , select the all-in-one product folder, and then click Uninstall . Follow the directions that appear.
The basic device drivers have been removed after completing this step. If you were having problems with connectivity or the basic print or scan drivers, you may reconnect the all-in-one at this point to reinstall it. If the problem is not corrected or if you had other problems, continue to the next step.
3.Open the Windows Control Panel by following these steps:
* Windows 98, Me and 2000: Click Start , click Settings , and then click Control Panel .
* Windows XP: Click Start and then click Control Panel .
4.Click Add/Remove software (click Add or Remove Software in Windows XP).
5.In the list of installed programs, locate and select HP Photo and Imaging 3.0 or HP Image Zone , and then click Remove . Restart the computer after uninstalling if prompted.
6.In the list of installed programs, locate and select HP Software Update , and then click Remove .
7.In the list of installed programs, locate and select Memories Disk Creator 2.0 , and then click Remove .

Reinstall using updated drivers from the link (for XP)

If windows vista then it will install the drivers automatically on connecting the printer

When downloading a printer driver from HP you will need to ensure that you are selecting the correct OS (eg. Windows 7) and the appropriate version (eg. 64 or 32 bit operating system). These drivers are different and using one on the other will not work.
Windows XP drivers also will not work properly in a Windows 7 environment and the majority of Windows XP drivers are 32-Bit.

No computer of mine recognizes this printer and the left drip light keeps blinking even though i have repalced it


If by referring to the left drip light you mean the bottom left light; this is the indicator light for the color ink cartridge:
Left print cartridge light blinks, Power light on. Tri-color print cartridge is damaged or missing.
? Reinstall the print cartridge. If the error persists, replace the print cartridge.

? You can still print with one cartridge


it is possible that once the computer and printer are communicating that the error messages could also be resolved by running the printer diagnostic program.


If your computers do not recognize the printer, uninstall the driver, if you had installed a specific driver, and then go to the site below to download a driver for your operating system and specific printer:

The Print Diagnostic Utility diagnoses and resolves common printing problems and communication problems, including:

If you prefer, you can skip this information and
go directly to downloading the tool .

  • Connectivity :
    • USB: Ensures that the USB connection from your computer to the HP product is working correctly.
    • Network: Ensures that the network connection between your computer and your network is working correctly. If the tool detects a network connectivity problem, you will be prompted to run the HP Network Diagnostic Utility for better results.
  • Spooler : Automatically restarts the print spooler, which sends print jobs from the computer to the product, if it has been stopped.
  • Online status : Checks if the product has been paused or set to offline, and then sets the status back to online if necessary.
  • Device manager : Checks for problems in Device Manager that would prevent printing.
  • Print queue : Checks for and clears pending print jobs in the print queue (a log of print jobs waiting to print).
  • Port : Checks the port settings for the HP product.
  • Driver : Checks for alternate-driver settings.
  • Conflicts : Checks for conflicts with other drivers, such as other printer brands.
  • Default printer : Checks the default printer setting and prompts to select the HP product as default (optional).

I can't print out with my 1160 and computer


Always try downloading the appropriate driver first, but if it just doesn't work you can always use the postscript version of the HP Laser-jet 4 driver in the Windows driver list and still get most functionality under Vista on almost all HP laser printers.

Try downloading the drivers and software from HP.

Uninstall your printer from 'Printers & Faxes'.

Remove your printer from ' add & remove programs'.

Remove your printer from 'Add & remove hardware'.

Disconnect your printer from your computer.

Reboot your computer.

Install the downloaded software from the HP site.

Hook up your printer to your computer.

Your computer should find the new hardware and install your new software.

If not, re-install downloaded software from HP site manually.

HP PSC1350 All-In-One Printer


This printer prints at a really slow 1.4 PPM, and if it's doing that, it means that the buffer in the printer is full and it must print what it has in memory before recieving more of the page, if it's a really high resolution picture, it can take forever to print. This isn't a defect at all, it's just something that you can't fix that makes this printer useless for an office. I have this printer too, I usually just go do something while it does its thing...
