When I install the D7260 printer using the CD-Rom supplied it works fine. Then after a few days only the top two or three lines of the first page are printed and, after a long pause, the sheet comes out....

Many issues are caused when the HP Photosmart is connected to computer using a USB cable before the HP Photosmart software is installed on the computer. IF you connected the HP Photo smart to your computer before the software installation screen prompts you to do so, you must follow these steps.

Troubleshooting common setup issues :
1) Discoonect the USB cable from the computer.
2) Uninstall the software (if you have already installed it.)
3) Restart you computer.
4) Turn off the HP Photosmartm wait one minute then turn it on.
5) Reinstall the HP Photosmart software.

If your installation is incomplete, or if you connected the USB cable to the computer before prompted by the software installation screen, you might need to uninstall and reinstall the software. Do not simply delete the Hp Photosmart application files from your computer. Make sure to remove them properly using the uninstall utility provided when you installed the software that came with the HP Photosmart.

To uninstall from a Window computer and then reinstall
1) On the Windows taskbar, click Start, Settings, Control Panel (or just Control Panel).
2) Double-click Add/Remove Programs (or click Uninstall a program).
3) Select HP Photosmart Driver Software, and then click Change/ Remove.
Follow the onscreen instructions.
4) Disconnect the HP Photosmart from your computer.
5) Restart your computer.
Note : It is important to that you disconnect the HP Photosmart before restaring your computer. Do not connect the HP Photosmart to your computer untill after you have reinstalled the software.
6) Insert the HP Photosmart CD-ROM into your computer's CD-ROM drive and then start the Setup program,
7) Follow the onscreen instructions and the instructions provided in the Setup Guide that came with the HP Photosmart.

My scanner is not working. Can't open HP director on my laptop. I tried to reinstall CD that came with it, but " more recent version installed" Printer and copier work fine.

Here are some diagnostics.
1. Go to control Panel and then to scanners & camera.
2. look for your scanner there.
3. if you find your scanner there try to scan from the wizard and you will be able to scan you docs.

To Reinstall the Hp Director....
1. first uninstall the HP director software using the removal utility located in your cd...

The uninstaller on the Internet is newer and works better than the one on the CD-ROM. Use this method only if the Internet version is not available. Follow the steps below to use the CD-ROM version only if you cannot get the regular uninstall to work correctly and cannot access the Internet:
  1. Leave the USB cable disconnected from the all-in-one.
  2. Insert the all-in-one CD-ROM into the computer. Cancel or close any installation windows that appear.
  3. Right-click the Start button, and then click Explore . This will open Windows Explorer.
  4. In the pane on the left, locate the CD-ROM drive letter that contains the all-in-one CD-ROM.
  5. There are two different versions of the software for some of these models. Use the file path that pertains to your version of the all-in-one software.
    • Early versions of the HP Officejet 6100 and PSC 2100 and 2200 series: Double-click the file hposcr01.exe , located in the Drivers\Uninst\language (ENU for English, ESN for Spanish, FRA for French, or PTB for Portuguese) folder of the CD-ROM.
    • The newer software version: Double-click the file Cleanall.bat , which is located in the Util\CCC\Cleanup folder of the CD-ROM.
Let me know for any further help....

My brother 2070W acts like it receives the data, but it never prints

When reconnecting the USB cable to the computer or laptop the cable must
be reconnected to the same USB port it was previously connected to. Otherwise, Windows will install another copy of the printer
driver and the printer will no longer print. Most computers have two or
more USB ports. To prevent this problem from occurring we would
recommend labeling the end of the USB cable to indicate which USB port
the cable must be reconnected to.

To resume printing the printer driver should be removed then

In Windows 2000 open Start, Settings and Printers. In Windows XP open
Printers and Faxes. Double click one of the Brother printer icons to
open the print queue. If print jobs are listed click Printer and Cancel
All Documents. Repeat this process for all copies of the Brother printer

Delete all copies of the Brother printer driver by selecting the printer
and clicking File then Delete.

Once all the copies of the Brother printer driver have been deleted
click File and Server Properties. Click the Drivers tab. Select the
Brother printer from the list and click the Remove button. Click Close.

The printer driver can be reinstalled using the Brother CD-ROM or
downloaded from the Brother Solutions web site. Check the CD-ROM to
verify it lists the operating system installed on your computer. If your
operatingsystem is listed insert the CD-ROM and install the printer driver.Before installing the printer driver disconnect the USB
cable from the back of the printer. Do not reconnect the USB cable to
the printer until the installation prompts you.

If the CD-ROM does not list the operating system installed on your
computer the CD-ROM should not be used to reinstall the printer driver.
The newest version of the printer driver is available for free download
from the web site below.

How to install the downloaded driver:
1. Download and save the Windows 2000/XP driver to your desktop.

2. Once downloading is complete, Double-click the file to open the
WinZip Self-Extractor. In the Unzip To folder section, change the path
to c:ro, click Unzip and click OK. Click Close to close the WinZip

3. Open Printers or Printers and Faxes.

4. Click Add Printer or Add A Printer.

5. Click Next on the first screen. Select Local printer. Remove the
check from Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer and
click on Next.

6. Select a USB port and click on Next.

7. Click the Have Disk button and type the directory c:ro.

8. Click on OK.

9. Select the model and click on Next.

10. Select Yes to use the printer was the default printer then click

11. Select Do not share this printer or Share as and click on Next.

12. Click on Yes or No to print a test page.

13. Click on Finish to complete the installation.

Do give my solution the highest rating if it solves your problem. Thank you for using fixya.
