Where can I get a windows 10 driver for HP8450 photosmart printer


Most HP drivers are available here: http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers . Then search for your model. The direct link to the drivers for the Photosmart 8450 is http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-photosmart-8400-printer-series/402149/model/402151#Z7_3054ICK0K8UDA0AQC11TA930C7 . Select your OS version.

The Photosmart 8450 drivers should be found with the new hardware wizard in Windows 10. You'll need to connect the printer to the computer via a USB cable to start. (Make sure that the system is connected to the internet.)

I hope this helps.

I am using a stand alone photosmart 8450 ( with out computer ) it will print every memory card except SDHC the cards are fine as I use them in my Pentax camera


The 8450 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them. SD cards will work in SD and SDHC devices, but SDHC cards will not work in SD devices.

This is a long shot but have you recently installed new ink? I have seen a lot of people mentioning a similar problem since the newer ink cartridges.
If yes, then print an alignment page and go through the instructions, it shouldnt (fingers crossed) happen again after that. Let me know how you get on :)

While you reinstalled the ink the procedure did not allow the software to detect the difference.'hence I would suggest that the printer be removed and uninstalled,
Use tthe Cd provided to reinstall the software into the printer , Now plug back the printer and the new harware will be detected.
The ink will show correct and the computer to printer communication must be establised.
The test print must prove this out.
Credit if the advice helps.

The printer tells me to replace an ink cartridge because the ink has been depleted. The cartridge is nearly new, though. Just yesterday it showed to be half full. I have cleaned the printheads and the...


There is a chip on your cartridge that communicates with the printer to estimate how much ink is left in the cartridge. When the chip thinks the cartridge is empty it will refuse to print any more pages no matter how much ink is left in the cartridge. These cartridges are only estimated to print "up to 840 4" x 6" photos, or 80 13" x 19" photos." If it showed half full yesterday and then you put through a large print job it is very likely the cartridge is empty. In any case once the chip thinks it's empty the cartridge needs to be replaced.
