NEW HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One on Vista - Error Printing

Whats the error message and can you try the printer directly connected into your computer?

Also check what your computer says in the printer status -> start -> printers and faxes -> your printer.

HP 990cx1 unable to print from Vista

The problem is definitely due to compatibility...To solve this and you want to use vista as well you will need to use dual-booting(two operating systems on the same machine)A wise choice would be a combination of XP and VIsta...This will solve the problem at least until your printer drivers for VIsta are out..

Need Dell All-in-One printer 924 to work with Inspiron 530S.

If it doesn't say it is specifically for VISTA then it is not for VISTA.. Even if it does show up on the computer ,that just shows that some driver for that model printer is installed. Not necessary one that will work. Go to the weblink that I gave you. Download the VISTA drive and update the driver, using the one you downloaded ,and that will most lkely fix the problem.

Job Status Window Interface has stopped working.

The issue usually occurs if you are using windows xp drivers on a vista machine. It's strange that the error does not come up when printing from internet explorer 7.0.

There is a file on that you can run to remove any xp drivers and then run the vista installation file. that should take care of these error messages from the operating system.

you can copy and paste the following links to download and run the files :

Sharp 1642CS shared printer

You can go into your print driver and change the Driver. I dont think there is a difference between Home or Prem drivers. There is how ever a difference between 32 bit and 64 bit Vista?
When you set up the printer and share it from a PC, The printer attached to that PC can Control the Configurartion of the printer. PC's can either pull the driver from the sharing PC or you can select your own.

I would first check that the correct drivers are installed, (64bit or 32bit)
I would check the computer that is trying to print. replace the driver with the correct one.
You can open the print server -open the printers and fax folder, right click in a white area in that folder, a menu should pop up. Select Print Server from there you will see tabs, try to replace the driver from there.
Or Open the Printer Properties and there you will see Driver-Update in there.

This is a link to an explanation
Thou it was made for XP but the basic Infomation is the same.
-->Print a test page from The Printer Properties), if it works the Computer is fine, if you try to print from a program and it prints with errors. it is in the program..

PSC1510 & Vista problem

The problem cannot BE solved. It's yet ANOTHER Vista screw-up.

Original Problem:

"No matter what I try - every page from Jarte prints out with an UNWANTED gray
This does not always happen when I print from the web, make copies or print from
Microsoft Word. I ran diagnostics on my printer HP PSC1510 and it's fine.
Test pages print ok, too.
Please help - I had Jarte on my last laptop (Windows XP), it worked very well
and I liked it much better than MS Word."

I emailed Jarte Tech support and got the following answer:

"The problem you encountered is a bug in Windows Vista. You will see the same problem when using WordPad on Windows Vista. As you have noticed, not all programs are affected by the bug. The problem is occurring because you are using a Windows color scheme that uses a gray background color for text windows. Unfortunately, the only work around is to specify white as the background color to use for text windows. Hopefully, Microsoft will correct the problem in a future Windows Vista service pack."

HP psc 2110 all-in-one wont print from internet

I'm assuming you went to the HP site and downloaded the Vista drivers??? Other than that try this:

  1. From Control Panel > printers... uninstall all printers.
  2. Unplug USB cable to printer and re-boot.
  3. Install Software.
  4. Plug USB cable back in.
Hope that fixes Ya...
