Question about HP Photosmart 2575 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Not Printing!! Hi! My hp photosmart 2575 worked fine until yesterday. All of a sudden the usb port (hardware) was not recognized, so I unplugged it and tried again; still a problem. Then, I plugged in an old printer, and the computer recognized the new hardware immediately. (I hate that printer!! so 20th century!) I shut down my computer for 15 min or so, and plugged in my hp. Now my printer is recognized, but it still won't print. It's showing documents in queue. Please tell me I don't have to buy a new printer!!?

Error Code 0xc1ab0001 What do I do?


Hi,

The "Oxc1ab" series errors can be removed by resetting the printer. Unplug the USB cable from the printer, remove the ink cartridges. When the "Insert ink cartridges" message appears unplug the power cord from the printer. Wait 1 minute (at least), then reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer if it didn't come on by itself. Reinsert the ink, close the unit and print a calibration page if prompted to do so. Finally reconnect the USB cable to the printer. If this doesn't work, the unit needs service (or replacement if the service call will cost more than a new printer).

Thank you!!

USB not recognized during printing and scanning


Some motherboard or operating systems have problems if you leave usb devices plugged in. They don't recognize that the device is still there and ignore it. These are referred to as "Legacy USB devices". There are a couple of things to try.

Make sure the problem isn't the printer if you can. If you have another computer just plug it in long enough to for the operating system to recognize something has been plugged in.

On this computer giving you the problem. unplug the usb cable and insert into a different USB port. Usually this is enough to "fix" it and make it usable.

Next is to unplug the usb and reboot the computer a few times. Then insert into a different usb port.

Past this point if it still isn't working then you need to go to control panel-system-hardware manager-usb devices and delete all entries under the usb header. Then reboot. This forces the operating system to find all the usb ports and reinstalls the drivers. Then plug in the usb and it should work again.

HP Photosmart Printer, Mac won't recognize with USB


Sounds like their is not communications between your printer and computer. Could be a bad USB cable - swap out and see if that fixes it. If not it could be a faulty USB port on the computer or printer. You can check the computer USB port by connecting another device, but there is no way to check the HP's USB port. I would also check printer USB port for dust bunnies! If you're not able to resolve, I think it is time for another printer.

My HP Photosmart suddenly started blobbing out ink.


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

USB port problems with hp printer


There are few things to remember using USB.
  • If your System is in hybernation mode, don't remove any attached USB device, because it will damage your USB driver. This is one of the known problem from microsoft.
  • If you have to remove any USB device use 'Safely Remove Hardware'.

To remove currepted USB drivers its not enough to remove your printer drivers.
  1. You should un-install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' from Device Manager.
  2. Then re-boot to clean registry.
  3. Install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' using XP Setup CD.
  4. Then check the Mass storage, PDA etc, it should recognized by XP.
  5. Then install printer driver (don't attach printer to system untill setup finish or setup says to connect).

I think it will fix.
Please let me know your feed-back.

Thanks
Iqbal
