Maybe there's some document stuck in your printqueue. Next to the systems clock (on the bottom right of your screen) there should be a small printer icon.

Doubleclick it, the printer's queue should appear. If not right click it and choose printequeue.

In the printqueue screen go to File > Cancel all (or an options similar. If the queue is empty. Try printing again. If it won't empty, restart your machine, and try emptying it again (or chech whether it's now empty)

If this doesn't work, download the driver installer from HP's site.
Use the following link:
[HP Deskjet 880c Driver page]

First select your OS though.

Let me know if this helped.

    No problem. I didn't think of a problem with the Windows XP installation itself as well.

    Glad your problem is solved!

My HP deskjet 880C is only printing in black and pink (no blue, no green, not red)

If your printer has a toolbox feature, try cleaning the printer head. I have found out with HP printers that I have owned to stay away from remanufactured ink cartridges or generic brands. I use genuine ink cartridges and buy mine from Ebay for very good prices. Just a thought.

Printing random characters

Hi there

This I think is the driver, best to remove the printer driver off the PC close down, and restart again then reinstall the printer driver back to your pc.

All the best Pineworks
