    What model is that? Do you use ink refills?

  • fullcircleva Aug 06, 2010

    drivers up to date. went to download drivers and rec'd message stated all my drivers are up to date and updated weekly. Would have been an easy fix though, and wish it had worked. Went and got an Epson Workforce 610. Still would like to fix HP though.

    Please remove the printer and remove all Epson driver from the add and remove program. Go to run and enter "devmgmt.msc" you will get device manager, Remove all of the Universal Serial Bus from the device manager and click on Scan for hardware changes. It will install all of the USB drivers. After that connect the all in on printer and install the software properly.

    bhagyanath, It is an HP Printsmart C6280. Since I couldn't fix it and I had to have a printer, I bought an Epson Workforce 610. So, what I need to do is take all drivers to both printers out of the device manager and reload the HP to see if it will work then if it doesn't , set up the Epson again? I still have time to return the Epson if I can fix the HP. Thanks for you help.
