How dow I get an install cd to setup wireless printing

1. Turn on the wireless radio on the printer.
2. On your laptop, open the list of wireless networks that you can connect to. You'll see a network named 'hpsetup'. You'll need to connect to this network. Ignore any security warnings and proceed with the connection.
3. Wait for 1 minute after this is done. Then print a network settings page from the printer. It should have an IP address starting with 169.254. This means that the printer is connected.
4. Click on the Support & Drivers link at the top of this page and download the drivers for the Photosmart C4385, and install it.

Network printer if print test page printing normaly if print pdf or word not printing !!

The test page comes from the printer itself. If the printer is on a network you need to re-establish it on the network using its IP address. If it is a network printer on one computer, you need to redownload the software.

You should also go to Settings/Printers and make sure the machine itself is the default printer rather than some type of Windows virtual printer like 'Print to File' or 'Print to PDF', Print to Fax' or a printer that is no longer there.

Paper alignment

You mite have a problem with paper setting or the draw settings. Could be that paper is set for metric size at the copier/printer and United States setting at the printer or vise a versa. Check to make sure that you setting are correct. DO the internal prints such as demo page and Network setting or counter page print OK if you have two draws print from different one or the bypass tray see if it changes?

Wireless laptop cannot connect to network printer

Found this solution:
  1. On Vista PC go to "Control Panel" - "Printers" - "Add printer".
  2. - Believe or not, click "Add a local printer" (I know you want to add a network printer but that way it doesn't work).
  3. - Click "Create a new port" - "Local Port" - "Next"
  4. - In the next box you have to enter a port name like this:\\PC name\Printer name where "PC name" is the network name of the XP PC or Network Share where you have the printer and "Printer name" is the network name of that printer. Be careful with this names. Check in your XP PC "Control Panel" - "Printers and faxes" - "your printer" - right click - "share" - "share resources name"
  5. - Choose the manufacturer and printer model of the printer you are adding.
  6. - Now the printer will be added and you can print a test page or print something to test it.
Let me know if it's working for your config as it worked for me

Cannot print with wirelessly networked printer


if printing from 2 other computer works fine, will i think its not an issue of IP address which changes somehow. but anyways, try to check if you still have other printer drivers under "PRINTERS" (see control panel). it should say HP Photosmart c6100 series. If you also have there a printer icon that says HP Photosmart c6100 series Copy1, try using it (right click on that icon and choose Set as Default Printer). If you only have HP Photosmart c6100 series under PRINTERS, try to right click, then choose properties. When Properties box is open, click on PORTS tab. then click on configure ports below. Try to type in the IP address of the printer under "Printer Name or Host name or IP address". make sure that you already printed network configuration page to get the exact ip address of the printer, Dont know how to print? do this.

1. press setup, then scroll down and look for Network.
2. press okay on network, it will give you the first option "VIew network settings".
3. press okay on it, and it will give you the first option "Print network configuration page."
4. choose that and press okay. it will print the network config page. from this document, you will be able to see the IP address of the printer.

Please let me know if the issue is still not resolve so that i can go ahead and give you another possible solution.

Thank you so much.

Printer switching orientation

Make sure that manual feed is set to letter, on the printer front panel. This is a tabloid printer, so letter size sheets are fed long edge. The cassette will print okay because the media size info for the cassette is read by the printer from the cassette cams.
