HP OfficeJet 6500 Causes 5 minute BIOS boot-up lag...

I just installed an HP Office Jet 6500 on Windows XP Home. I originally installed the wireless driver, but there were fatal errors. So I uninstalled all drivers using the option on the install CD to uninstall. Then I reinstalled the drivers, but this time selected "wired (USB) install." Everything installed fine this time, but 2 times during the install process, the self-installer said I have to restart my computer to delete files. I did and saw the install through to completion. Problem is that since then, every time I restart my computer, the BIOS screen lasts about 5 minutes. It used to be only 5 seconds. Anybody know an easy way to fix this?

P.S. what's the point of buying a wireless printer if it ends up being MORE of a hassle trying to get it to work wirelessly :-)

SOURCE: Cannot print with wirelessly networked printer

hi,

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.

PRINTING NETWORK CONFIGURATION PAGE
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.

SOURCE: HP Officejet 6500 No scan Options

I am trying to scan, but when I press the scan button it states "No scan options. Refer to device doc to troubleshoot". However, I can't find my device doc. I am assuming there is an easy fix?

I have HP Officejet 6500 connected via USB to office desktop. I also need print from vista laptops on the same wireless network as the desktop. How do you do it ?


Hi, I just completed this same query this week.

to set up my remote network i followed promts from windows and then had to run my windows xp startup disc on my vista laptop.

After that was complete i had to install the hp printer setup cd onto my vista laptop and connect the hp printer to my router using the ethernet cable. I followed the prompts on the vista as the cd continued to install. then at the end of it all it showed i had correctly installed the printer via wireless and asked me to do a practice print which i did and all seems fine.

I can now print from my vista laptop and my windows xp desktop. I hope this helps

Cannot coonect SCANNER (HP Officejet 6500 wireless) to my Windows


I have seen alot of problem/posts concerning HP AIO's and software issues. Typically some of the functions won't work or not recognized by solution center. Try a complete uninstall of all associated printer software, run registry cleaner if you have it, restart, then try completely uninstalling your Antivirus/firewall software. I have seen that just disabling Antivirus/firewall still causes faulty installations. Now, reinstall your printer software/drivers and connect cables only when told to do so. Some reason the AV/FW software blocks some of the AIO's apps from completely installing.

Hope this works...Good Luck!

Printer status says offline, and we can not print on laptop


Hi!
If you're offline with the printer, you definitely won't be able to print.

I'm assuming you're using Windows XP here. Most Windows products will be similar...

On the laptop, click on the Start button, then Settings, then Printers and Faxes. Find your printer in the list, right-click on it and click "Use Online" or uncheck the "Offline" box.

Good luck! Remember to rate the solutions!
