The answer to your problem lies in HP. Here is what you need to check (and even though your printer is an older model I suspect HP will have an updated driver for it). Go to the HP website...do the normal thing of putting in your model et al and wind your way through the maze until you get to a page that will show you the CURRENT driver for your printer. By current I mean most recent.
Often you will also find what it supports. There is VIRTUALLY NO REASON the printer should not be supported (and if there is not a driver...complain loudly to HP). Download the driver to a named temporary file (i.e. myhpprinterdirver) you create (follow the prompts). Then uninstall everything connected with the printer....that means the add/remove dialogue where you uninstall and (upon completion) go back in and remove the HP directories.
Having done that turn off the computer, plug in the printer and turn the computer on (plug and play should detect it), and (if I remember correctly) escape from that dialogue, go the temporary folder you have created and run the setup program. FYI...HP, for reasons that amaze many of us, created very large files (actually with many drivers in them) for downloading. After you get your printer running you may want to delete the folder if you are tight for space on your drive. This should work if (and this is an if I stress with all people) your machine is maintained. That translates to running scandisk once a week, defragmenter once a month, using Ccleaner (free on the internet), using Spybot Search and Destroy (also free), and Avast or AVG for a virus scanner....(also free). Just those tools eliminate cross linked files, registries that have a zillion old links, unnecessary junk, etc. Deleting programs you do not use is also suggested. Now why do I suggest this...well, it's simple (at least from my perspective) the more stuff you have the more can go wrong (hiccups) and not doing maintenance or protecting your machine can make problems like you are having difficult to solve. As an example I have had what I can only call (and it was a singular interrelated problem) operating-system-driver-multiple application messes that required reloading in a specific sequence to fix the "issues". This may be a bit of an overkill as a response but (since I find most folks don't think "maintenance" on a product infinitely more complex than an automobile but would never not change the oil) it should cover all the possibilities. On the slight chance that it does not work try the printer on another computer. If that does not work you may have a defective printer. The more or less normal life in a heavy office environment on an older ALL-in-One is 4 years. I have had a 1210 (older than yours) for (I think) 6 years and it gets a real workout...I refill the ink cartridge weekly. Trust this helps. Tango.

Cant find hp psc 1350 on list of hp printers


HP "series" numbering can be somewhat confusing, but Windows 7 does have the correct driver for your printer.
For the HP PSC 1350, you will need to use the 1300 series driver.

The 1310 series driver is for models numbered 131x (e.g., 1315, 1318).

My pc is a window vista--- my hp psc 1410 printer does not work. cd version 4.7.1..i dont know if it is compatible w/ window vista


Hi solivencia.

Try this first!

Try turning off Windows Defender or whatever AV software you are running. After I turned Defender off the installation completed with no problems and it now prints!!

or this....

"Make sure your printer is on and connected to the computer when doing this.

-Open windows update
-Check for updates
-View optional updates
- There will be a small update for the psc 1410 series, install that and all functionality will be built in to the windows printer center"

Running vista now. it has drivers for the printer but scanner and copier drivers are on setup disc as the disc does not support the new opperating system it will not read the disc so just wondering if...


If you don't use the HP software (i don't on my 1300 series) Uninstall all of it.
Then go to device manager and remove the printer,then reboot(while rebooting unplug the printer from the computer) and then once the computer is up, plug the printer to the computer, it will find the printer and let it search for drivers, it should find vista drivers for the 1300 series

if this may not work try this additional steps:

Go to Control panel>printers>Right click on the printer and select properties then ports and see if it set as a USB port if not you may have to create one
