Question about HP Photosmart 2610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP Printer /scanner problem

HP Lap Top also connected to network though Lynksys. Laptop has XP operating system. All-in-one 2610 Photosmart installed with original HP disc and has no operating problems.
However in the Dell E-521 with Vista Premium the scanner will not work and when you go to control panel, the All-in-one printer has disappeared. When you have it search for printer,it will ask you if you want to use driver already in computer, it will install printer,but not the rest of the files needed to scan with Printer will print find ,but can't scan. When you look in the HP files,it seems all the files are there. I can reinstall using the disk I have ordered for Windows Vista, and have done so numerous times,but after a few days the same disappearance will occur. It seams a HP excution file dissapears somewhere.

Re: HP Printer /scanner problem

Are you running a space cleanup utility? HP unhelpfully uses the .tmp extension for live files, ensure you're not deleting them. I got "Scan.msi not found" and had to reinstall my AIO software every time until I told WinOptimiser to stop deleting .tmp files (except in the genuine TEMP folders).

HP Photosmart C6280 not visible as printeroption though installed

this will usually happen if you're disconnecting the USB cable from the computer and putting it back on a different USB ports. try to connect it to where it was working before. this is also true for other USB devices such as scanners and webcams

Go to HP website and downlad driver.
It will ask you to select Operating System and then it will list available downloads.

I'd recommend the HP Photosmart Basic Print and Scan Driver because it is a smaller download size without having to install the other unneeded software in HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers

What operating system are you running on your laptop? This model only supports Windows 2000/XP/Vista and Mac OS/X. Make sure you have installed the printer USB drivers (included on the printer software CD) first. If you are connecting the printer directly to the laptop, all you should then need to do is connect the printer to the mains power, turn it on, and connect the USB cable between the printer and the laptop. If you are connecting to a printer that is connected to another computer, you mus make sure printer sharing is enabled on the computer the printer is physically connected to.

I may be able to provide a better solution if you can provide more information on your Laptop operating system and how the printer will be connected.

Photosmart 3310 is on network but not recognized wirelessly

Sounds like another Vista Bug, i would check the HP site for this issue and if its under warranty, contact HP. If you have alot of Blue tooth devices hooked up, it may be that its trying to use another device in its place or the signals are getting crossed, im not positive.

Its like when you have to many network drives all hooked up and you plug in a USB device, Windows pops up those anoying bubles saying its detected, but in My computer it doesnt show.

So bassically you have to right click my computer, manage, disk management listed uder storage, right click on the device or drive and change the drive letter to something like " W" or " Z" or anything not in use.

It may be a siomilar case with your bluetooth, youo may have to much stuff connected. Try redoing everything like you have so many other times before, and then limiting how many bluetooth devices you have connected at the same time. see if theres a difference.

Hope this helps.
