HP C6180 Print Queue Error

When I try to print wirelessly from a Vista PC to my HP Photosmart C6180, I get an"Error printing" message in the print queue. The printer is on & can print to it from other machines. The IP address is correct. I can initiate a test page print, but any other printing gives the error message. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the software; rebooted- no change. The installation was able to detect the printer over the network just fine. I had the same problem with an XP machine, but it sits right next to the printer so I connected with a USB cable. I have another XP desktop that prints to it wirelessly- no problem. Once upon a time, it all worked just fine, but I can't think of what has changed. I have tried turning off Windows firewall. I have added the IP address and the name to the "hosts" file.

Help!
Thanks!

Hp c6180 will not print from windows vista; no error message displayed on computer or printer; print queue says error printing with no explanation wireless installation hp solution center says no hp...


This means that your system does not display any printer name under the printer's list even though you would have installed your wireless printer on your Windows Vista system. This could be caused if you have not updated printer drivers in your system or the printer is incompatible with Windows Vista. Also see if the Windows firewall is blocking the printer from being recognized by your system. get more information for HP Wireless Printer Problems . Hope this helps you.

Print cartridge
When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.
Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.
1. Open the top cover of the printer.
2. Remove the print cartridges.
3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth. Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.
5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.
6. Close the top cover.
7. Try printing again.
If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .
