Hi.

I think that the Drivers have failed to communicate.Just try the steps below.


1.Right click on MY computer ->Properties->Hardware->Device manager.

2.You will get Device manager window popping out.

3.Scroll down to "Universal Serial BUS controllers".Click on the (+) sign.

4.Check for the "USB Composite Device" and right click on it, click Uninstall.(IMPORTANT NOTE:wE HAVE TO UNINSTALL THE PRINTER'S USB COMPOSITE DEVICE, TO KNOW WHETHER IS THE PRINTER'S USB COMPOSITE DEVICE, RIGHT CLICK ON USB COMPOSITE DEVICE AND PROPERTIES,look for wat location says, Eg -LOCATION : HP Photosmart c4100)

5.Disconnect the USB and reboot the PC.

6.Connect the USB after reboot, you will get popup "Found new hardware".Then the Drivers will be installed Automatically.

Thanks

Riz

Printing still photos from webcam


Go to Control Panel and click on Printers. Then click on your printer and set it as the DEFAULT PRINTER. It is probably set to the FAX Printer now. That is why it keeps popping up.
It should work okay after you set it as Default Printer.
Hope this helps. Bud

Photoshp CS2 print differnet photos on one sheet photo paper


Hi,

for printing multiple photos in different layouts, photoshop might not be the best program.
You can howerver do it, here is how:

Open a new document with the preset letter (if your printer prints letter format) or Din A4 (if it prints A4 pages).

Open the three (or more, or less =) photos, so that you have four windows in photoshop (one is the blank page)

now with the move tool (tool palette -> top left corner) drag and drop the photos onto the blank page you created.

They might be too big (or too small). In order to change that, hit strg-T (if youre mac thats apple-T).
This will show a frame around the photo, where you can drag the corners to enlarge or shrink the photo. Hold down shift while doing that so the picture stays in proportion (youll see what i mean).

When the pic is the right size, hit the okay button on top of the workspace or just hit enter.

arrange your photos and hit File->Print with Preview (or something like that)
Now you can see how the printer is going to print the page.
If its cut of, youll have to go to Page Setup and set it to Landscape mode (or Portrait)

When you hit okay, Photoshop might tell you that the printer will cut off edges of your picture. This usually isnt true because the edges of your page should be white anyways (most printers dont print to the border of the page, so calculate 1,5 cm or so)

so just hit proceed and print


I hope this wasnt too complicated, come back with more questions if you want =)
also, be sure to try picasa from google for organizing photos (i think you can print from there too)

Prints only Black and White (Monochrome)


Check your Printer properties if it is set to color, chances are printer is setup to print in black and white mode or grayscale.

PHOTO paper


The HP printer was prepared to use HP's photo paper to print borderless pictures among other things.
If you use a third party photo paper, try using A4 size, position the picture in the paper using MS Word or another WYSIWYG program and, after printing, cut the picture in the right size.
