HP PSC1210 not printing all items on the document with vista

I have a new laptop with Vista home basic installed. I have my previous HP PSC 1210 printer directly connected via USB. My printer is printing but not all items displayed are not printed, like the underlines and lines on the documents are not printed. I tried uninstalling and installing again and again the printer but still the problem persists. Can anyone here tell me how I can solve this problem? I also use corel draw and some graphics are not being printed. I checked with HP website on the driver updates for vista but they are saying that on vista this printer is readily recognized. Yes it is readily recognized, but everytime I plug it in it always installs the driver. Are these HP guys doing their job? The fact that HP is the most expensive printer in the market they should be paying enough to their support team to answer and deal with these problems.

Need to download the printing software (not the drivers) for the HP PSC 1210

Sadly the HP software is bundled with the ~116MB driver.. Hence in order to get all the original software you need to get the "full" driver.
The XP driver & software is :
If you have Vista, HP reference to the fact that the PSC 1210 printer under Vista can only work with basic functionality with the embedded Vista driver and HP doesn't have a dedicated Vista driver for this printer. (
But, if you still would like to get the HP Photosmart Essentials for Vista, you can get it from :

My hp 1210v


You have not informed if the version of Operating system that is installed in the computer is XP or Vista.

The printer model HP PSC 1210 have no drivers for Vista operating system.

However, I would like to provide you the article by which you can use the basic features of print and scan.

Here is the article for Vista:



If you are trying to scan using XP/2000/ME Operating system, then use the below given instructions:

Click on Start >> Control Panel >> Scanners and Cameras >> Double click on the Printer icon to run the Wizard >> Just follow onscreen instructions to scan.

However, you can also scan using the below article :



Hope the above information is usefull.

Can't install to Vista HP PSC 1210

Use Paint.
It's not ideal, but I can scan with my HP PSC 1205 running Vista when I use Paint. Just click 'file' then 'from Scanner or Camera'.
Works a treat.
