Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have been able to use generic and refilled HP cartridges. Since upgrading Mac OS X to 10.6, and installing updated drivers for the HP, it will not recognise refilled or generic cartridges. Is there a fix for this problem, as refills and generic cartridges are much cheaper? And I have some 56 and 57 HP cartridges which fit the printer - is there a way I can use them in the F 2180?

Hi,

The problem is not with you upgrading MAC OS to 10.6. All refill ink cartridges work fine if there is no issues with the magnetic strip which the printer sends to the catridges. Also placing the catridge correctly is another thing you would want to look into.

Cannot find driver/software for my dusty Canon imageCLASS MF3240 on mac OS 10.7 Lion?


There is no driver for your printer to work with OSX. It was for Windows OS only. AND Apple does not support this particular model either.Link below list support printers by Apple OSX>

How do I upgrade an HP Compaq to Windows 10 if it has an NVIDIA G6150SE nf430...


If you have a problem upgrading to Windows 10 with an NVIDIA G6150SE NF430 graphics card on an HP Compaq running Windows 7, then here is the solution.

Windows tells you the card is incompatible with Windows 10 because NVIDIA has not updated the driver.

First, Go Here and Upgrade to 10: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
You need to upgrade it from the Web vs the Windows 10 Upgrade Icon. The web version will upgrade to Windows 10 and install a generic Microsoft Driver. During the installation use the Media Creation Tool and select Upgrade this PC now. When it warns that the video chip is incompatible you just click 'Confirm' and the installation continues. The generic Windows basic video driver works fine and I was able to change the resolution to 1280x1024 which is what I need and it looks fine. Don't worry that it takes a long time to complete. That is because it checks for updates.

Second, Download and install the latest 8.1 driver here: http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/56378
This worked with no problems. Please note some things that require later DirectX may not work correctly, but many tasks will run fine.

What should be done to upgrade to windows 7 HP P2050 Series j510a


Are you using a new computer or doing an OS upgrade?

For a new computer, before you connect the printer's USB cable to the computer, download the full software package from HP's site: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=4027469& . Select whether you have the 32-bit or 64-bit OS and click Next. Expand the section marked Driver and select the full software package. After downloading, install the software. You will need to accept the UAC warning.

When prompted to do so, connect the USB cable. If you do not install the HP software first, you will get a Windows generic driver that will let you print but not enable the other features of the all-in-one. The HP basic driver will work but won't let you launch a scan from the all-in-one.

If you are upgrading your OS, then it depends on the type of upgrade. From Vista to Win7, with matching versions (both 64-bit Home or both 32-bit Business/Pro), just make sure to install any updates. If you are doing a different upgrade, disconnect the USB cable and treat it as a new computer.

I hope this helps.

CODE 10 ON TSST l632@ VISTA os


This is from Microsoft and is from their code explanation page.

Code 10 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); If the device has a "FailReasonString" value in its hardware key, that string is displayed as the error message. The driver or enumerator places this registry string value there. If there is no "FailReasonString" in the hardware key, the following generic error message is displayed:
This device is either not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed. (Code 10)

Try upgrading the device drivers for this device.
Solution button: Update Driver

To resolve this error code, make sure the device is connected to the computer correctly. For example, make sure all cables are plugged in fully and that all adapter cards are properly seated. Follow the suggested solution button and update the device driver. It may be possible to remove the device and redetect it using the Add New Hardware wizard.

Lexmark X3550 ink cartridge #23 receiving error message "left cartridge incorrect" when trying to replace. Using Lexmark Cartridges only for over 1 year, now cartridge won't work.


There are a small number of #23/#24 cartridges that are not properly recognized by the printer. Lexmark has a firmware upgrade to correct this issue. The upgrade for the X3430 is available from Lexmark at:

To install the firmware upgrade,
  1. Make sure the printer is ON and connected with a USB cable.
  2. Download and run the appropriate firmware upgrade for your computer.
  3. Be sure not to disconnect or power off the printer until the upgrade is complete

When the update finishes the printer will restart and will accept the cartridges. Please contact Lexmark support if this does not fix the problem.
A similar patch is available for the X3430 and Z1420 models. See http://bit.ly/LoXxv

you need to use generic driver for MAC... What kind of MAC OS are you using? MAC 10 have the drivers installed on the computer and you don't need to install the software.

Unfortunately, there is no workaround or driver that can help... You will have to install the original cartridges. Most printer companies are resorting to this method these days to prevent customers from using refilled/generic cartridges..

Scanner won't operate on HP PSC1410 All in one with Leopard


The HP CD and web download were created before Mac OS X v10.5 development and release so there may be problems with the install process. They are yet to release new package to suit check here for details and updates

Also check this info on mac 10.5 with this printer.
