Re: smae printer not recognised
Its all about the first thing for mechanism! mechanism has nothing to do with drivers! Your cartridge is not moving at all! Then the best thing is you should take it directly to hp service center to avoid further damage to hardware.

Please give is some more information. For example is this an impact dot matrix printer or an ink jet?
Since you are using the term, "Ribbon," I'm going to guess at Impact printer.
Most current impact printers are bi-directional print mechanisms. This allows the print head to apply dots to the image in both directions.
Since you are saying the the print head jams at the right side there are several things that can be wrong. First, the printhead stepper motor may be driving the printhead beyond it furthermost right stop position and binding the head. The print head carrier stop may be bent or out of position allowing the carie to lock on the stop.
Second, the stepper motor may not have enough torque to bring the head back and will need to be replaced.
If I were trouble shooting this, I would first get the printhead over to the left edge, then power off the printer and see if I manually move the print head carrier left and right can I feel a mechanical bind in the carrier movement.
If not I would then check and see if any belts are loose. If there are no loose belt and no bind, I would consider replacing the stepper motor.
It wopuld reall help if you told us what printer model and manfactuer you have so the printhead drive system can be studied.
I am sorry the print head goes out on the B And W on these things quite frequently. however you can go to www.hp.com amd go threw thier secdualed way of testing the print head but am sure you will find it defective. I had one and it was a problem. B e aware they have a new head that replaces the old head that lasts much longer.
I bought a new printer. Why would I go online looking for free advice, and then pay for advice that may or may not work? It was irritating getting suckered in by the Free Advice hook when no free advice was available.
try this link : I followed the directions and fixed the problem. the instructions that came with the new printhead weren't really complete.
Here's essentially all I did for my fix - Opened the printer top, turned the printer off. Removed the "bad" printhead, cleaned the metal contacts on the printhead and printer with windex. Closed the printer. Turned it on. waited for it to reset. Opened the printer. Turned the printer off again. Installed the printhead. Closed the lid. Plugged the printer in again. When it was ready I accessed the HP toolbox and alligned the printheads and cleaned the printheads. It worked. Here's a link with photos.
HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.
New h/w found mesage will come up even if you will uninstall the usb printing suport from the deviece manager and reestart your computer with the same pinter so need not to worry. Moreover you need not to install the printer with other drivers, previous drivers can be used.
Regarding the step by step instructions to take apart the printers, that is with HP service centres and not available for all
