Question about HP PSC 2175 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Smeary Printing Urgent help needed! I have a HP psc 2175 all-in-one printer / scanner / copier, and recently when I have been printing a page, the black parts of it (text, outlines etc) have been smudged along the page in lines! I wonder if this has something to do with the rollers?? I have tried to clean the cartridges, but it has made no difference. The fault occurred after I changed both the colour and black cartridge, and forget to align them, whether this contributed to the problem, I don't know. Also, my daughter has recently been printing a lot of A4 colour photos for her AS photography, maybe this hasn't helped?? Would really appreciate some advice! Thanks!

Hi.
Align the print cartridges by going to the mentenance/align cartridges tab - in the printer menu, then print a diagnostic/configuration page from the reports tab.

U'll find there all the colours that the printer is using along with other ones.

if there is a problem "after allignment" tell me

Windows 7 compatibility


Hi Brendi,
Are you looking for Software and Drivers for your HP PSC 2175 for New Windows 7 PC ?

If so, you don't need to look for drivers because the drivers are in-built in your PC database.
All you need to do is connect your printer using USB Cable to your PC and Start printing.
You will have to use MS Paint for Scanning any document or use the Scanners and Camera's Option under Control Panel ( START - All Programs - Control Panel )
Regards,Sean

PSC 2175 wont work with print server


Please make sure that the printer is working okay if directlysd connected to the MAC computer. You may try this as well. hope this helps

Description
LPR (line printer remote) is a platform independent printing protocol that is associate with TCP/IP. It works by using LPR client software that communicates to a server running LPR services.

In terms of PSU, LPR printing will become the basis for all network printing while Novell print queues are phased out. Therefore, all Macintosh, Windows, and Unix computers will be configured to print through LPR.

Requirements

· The name of LPR print queue. This can be found by searching the LPR printer database.

· LaserWriter print drivers version 8.5.1 or newer

· The Macintosh must have a working TCP/IP networking configuration. (If the Mac can browse the web then it's working.)

· a server running LPR services or a printer that supports LPR printing. Most HP LaserJet printers support LPR. However, only the following LaserWriters support LPR printing:

- LaserWriter 8500
- LaserWriter 16/600 PS
- LaserWriter 12/640 PS
- Color LaserWriter 12/600 PS
- Color LaserWriter 12/660 PS Procedure

1.Open up the Applications folder from the OS X menu.
2.Open up the Utilities folder
3.Now open up the Print Center
4.If you have no printers installed you will see the following screen. Click on Add.
5.On the following screen, select LPR printing.
6.Now enter printhost.oit.pdx.edu for the LPR Printer's address.
7.Uncheck Use Default Queue on Server option and enter the queue name of the printer.
8.Select the printer model.
9.The completed settings should be similar to the following:
(LPR Printer’s address is the ip of our PRINTSERVER)
10.Click on Add
11.Your printer has successfully been installed. Test the printer by printing something to it.

Hp psc 2175 all in one printer keeps giving me a paper mismatch message.


Hello tabbeach. The printing cartridge align page message appears if u have any alignment job pending, if it asks to print the alignment page. Follow the steps provided here.
Still if u are facing the same issue, perform a HP Media sense caliberation , which in most cases will resolve the issue
the steps to perform media sense calibration are provided here .
gud luck

Printer issue


I can only suggest that you should use genuine HP ink carts. Try all new carts and realign again. Hopefully it is under warranty. HP is good at exchanging.
