    Ok, I understand it does not print from word processor.
    Check that the printer is as default printer in 'insatalled printer on control panel . If not click the right button of the mouse on printer icon in 'installed printers' and chose 'set as default'.
    This should solve your problem.

    If the above still did not solve the problem, you will need to reinstall the printer driver, to do this:
    Disconnect printer from PC
    go to 'installed printers' in 'control panel'.
    Remove the printer from windows (right click and delete)
    Run printer software disk.
    connect printer only when prompted by software setup.
    It should print fine at this point.
    First check setting for default printer as posted above.

My HP Photosmart 8150 will only print from the card reader. When I try to print from the computer, it reads "printing" but eventually times out.

Go to printer and faxes option and choose the printer model which you installed just right click on it you will see the option of use printer online. Also I suggest you to change the usb port and the cable also still if you facing the problem follow these steps, right click on my computer and go to properties then hardware in that click on device manger and check there is any other device is listed if it is there just remove it and click for scan for hardware changes when he prompt for driver reinstall the driver cd.

Paper jam warning. I cannot find any paper in


Please try to turn off your printer and unplug all the connection in the printer from its power down to its usb or parrallel connection. And let it up to 30 minutes to unplug and turn off. This process is letting your printer reset it self and loading its default and original settings. Usually it loads it original settings. After 30 minutes please plug all the connection of the printer and then turn the printer on and test the printer by printing a document or any files you want to print. Please observe what is the result.

My HP Photosmart 8150 has started printing color

You may have a colour management problem. Your monitor may need to be recalibrated from the software you are using to print your images. Your printer too may need to be sorted by calibaration too.

Unable to print text documents

Some times image/picture files are very big files. That big size, in mega-bytes, some times conflicts with your amount of available memory. It could effect the print que or ram. Try running the file through a picture editing program edit the files then rename and save them. You can check the file size prior and then after you run the file through the program. If the file size is lowered it should print.
