Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
After power failure my printer won't print . HP Photosmart series 5100 on a wireless network with my Dell laptop. Tried rebooting everything. Tried to reinstall printer software but it couldn't find the printer on the network. Copier feature works.
SOME TIME THE PRINTER IS NOT DETECTED ON THE NETWORK DUE TO SOME FIREWALL EXCEPTIONS
So we will try to overcome the problem before that lets delete all the entries of the printer so insert the Cd of the printer driver and then open the content and go to the UTIL folder of the CD and then open CCC and then Run the UNINSTALL_L3 file and wait for it to finish then restart the computer
NOW Press the Setup button on the all-in-one. Press the arrow buttons until Network displays and then press OK . The Network menu displays. Press the arrow buttons until Wireless Setup Wizard displays and then press OK . Follow the instructions in the Wireless Setup Wizard. enter the router password when it says connected to network then press ok and press the setup button again and go to network and then go to view network settings and print network config page
the page will print out look fot the ip address on that page now click on the start button and go to run and then type cmd and press enter and then in the black screen type Ping(give a space and then the ip address of the printer without these brackets) and press enter now if it says reply from destination and then gives sent 4 lost 0 recieved 4 that means the printer is on the network
Now run the priner driver and then install the printer through the network if still it says no printer has been detected then click on start and then run and then type services.msc in the window look for hp cue and hp device discovery (network ) both the services should say started and automatic if its stopped right click and start it
now retry if sill not detected then click start run and then type devmgmt.msc now in the window that will open go to view menu and select show hidden device and then in the list look for multifunction adaptor and then under it you will se the printer name right click on it and select enable now retry even if still you have a problem then rightclick on the multifunction adaptor and delete it and then retry it hope tis will surely work but still if you have problem just let us know

Solved! I now can scan wirelessly throughout my network. I downloaded the drivers for a friends newer HP all-in-one scanner and I can scan. Look for the driver for the 309a series of printers and install it. Complete the install and set up your existing printer. You can now scan, print, fax wirelessly. It includes updated HP apps for these functions that work with OS 10.5. I didn't upgrade to the HP 1.1 drivers through Apple. The file name is: PS_AIO_05_C309a_Net_Full_Mac_WW_102.dmg
