    Same problem - but there is no driver for DeskJet 890c for Vista! Where did you find that? Can you post a link?

  • Anonymous Sep 29, 2008

    My 890C started to accept a request to print a test page. However, nothing happened. When I tried to clear it, the printer continued to seem as if it was going to start (the yellow light flashed on and off) but again nothing happened. I turned it off, disconnected it and restarted it, but each time, the yellow light flashed, but nothing happened. It is as if it wants to print and has the instruction in its memory, but cant actually print. Is there any way to re-set the printer?

Not printing after paper jam


Try the HP website. I just downloaded a tool that fixed my problem which was with a 1410 that worked with a Mac and with XP, but not Vista (although it had in the past). Print jobs showed in the queue, there was no error msg, but wouldn't print, either.

Hello,
The printer drivers must be installed on each computer. If computer A runs XP, you must install driver for XP on computert A; If machine B runs Vista, then you must install printer drivers for Vista on machine B.

Hope it helps.

We put a usb cable from the xp computer to the workcentre. We left the Vista computer connected to the workcentre via parallel cable. Not the solution we were hoping for but it does enable us to print from both computers

Unable to set prefrence to print on both sides


The only reference to a "two-sided printing module" I could find in relation to an Officejet is on the following web page at HP.com:

Two-sided Printing Overview

Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything specific to Windows Vista that talks about two-sided printing, but my guess is that Vista has yet to support this function for the Officejet 5610. If XP performed two-sided printing without this physical module being installed, it may be that Vista requires it.

The only Vista related web page I found on the 5610's site at HP has to do with downloading a diagnotic software utility:

HP Printing Diagnostic Utility

If all else fails, I'd try downloading and running the utility to see if it'll fix the issue with Vista. Post back your results here. Good luck.
