Re: black won't print

It sounds like your printhead may be blocked. Did you leave the machine sitting for a while? In any case if you go to your ink management section (found on the front control panel of the machine) and print a nozzle test you will soon be able to see if your black is firing at all. If there is no black on that sheet then you need to run a few head cleans (found also in ink management) and see if that rectifies your problem.

Good luck.
Please rate my advice, good or bad.

Can't define custom paper size on HP2600n after Vista upgrade

Went to HP support web site and found the following info. The HP drivers link will take to their download site If you haven't installed the Vista Print drivers yet.

Our church bought new computers with Vista Busines two years ago and after struggling with it for 6 months went back XP Pro. This was before any Vista service packs had been released so I'm not sure if these issues have improved. We are in no hurry to upgrade to Vista. Some articles I've read about 6 months ago recommended waiting for windows 7. I haven't followed how the release of windows 7 is going. Vista is a VERY DIFFERENT ANIMAL and can be frustrating. Been there and I feel your pain.

Want to print in b&w

I think the problem might be with the printer you are using. All my printers that I am using with different pc's using vista (4 printers all from different companies) have a colour and a greyscale button I can select under the quality tab in printer preferences. I don't get a B & W button to select from at all. I checked the help file in vista and it mentions "print color images in black and white" briefly, and the only thing it says is "option only available on supported printers". I am guessing you didn't upgrade your printer when you went to vista and maybe the OS doesn't support all the functions on the old printer. I had to give my favourite printer away to a friend and buy a new one when I changed to vista originally as my old one wouldn't even connect after I upgraded. Got very annoyed over that one let me tell you. At least yours still works so you had a better experience than I got stuck with after upgrading. Can you check your printer makers website to see if they have updated Vista drivers for your model? If they don't they might have some other info on doing what you want to do. Otherwise see about upgrading the printer to something newer I guess.

My HP 5550 Deskjet won't print mirror image

You'll need to go to the manufacturer's site and find Vista drivers for your HP. Going from Win 98 to Vista is a major jump. I had to convert from XP to Vista and I still had to go get Vista drivers.

Also, make sure you get 32 or 64 bit drivers for the system.
