Question about HP Officejet 6310 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Can't Print! My IT contact installed software on my laptop from Windows XP CD that came with 6310 All In One Printer. Can print fine from Word, Excel and Lotus Notes. Can't print a PDF from Adobe Acrobat or a presentation file from Powerpoint. Error message in dialog box says I must first Install a Printer, but the printer software has been installed and I can see it under Printer/Faxes on Control Panel. When I open a PDF attachment from e-mail and it displays in Adobe, it looks fine, but I can't print it! What am I doing wrong? Same error message when I try to print a slide from Powerpoint.

First, I would suggest updating the driver from here. I would also download and install the patches and fixes for this printer. It doesn't sound as if it was installed correctly the first time.

I have HP Officejet 6500 connected via USB to office desktop. I also need print from vista laptops on the same wireless network as the desktop. How do you do it ?


Hi, I just completed this same query this week.

to set up my remote network i followed promts from windows and then had to run my windows xp startup disc on my vista laptop.

After that was complete i had to install the hp printer setup cd onto my vista laptop and connect the hp printer to my router using the ethernet cable. I followed the prompts on the vista as the cd continued to install. then at the end of it all it showed i had correctly installed the printer via wireless and asked me to do a practice print which i did and all seems fine.

I can now print from my vista laptop and my windows xp desktop. I hope this helps

Uninstall the driver, remove any trace of the install from the system (as much as is possible). Whent his gets messed up it's really hard to get working on that machine again under XP. Aquire the printer through add printer and detect not the software on the CD, install the driver using the inf file on the Cd. Now reinstall the printer software using USB or serial as an option, when prompted select custom install and no driver. If you have it setup on another machine this also works, but acquire the printer through network neighborhood instead of using add/remove programs.

Contacted HP Chat support. After investigating a bit they had me add a new printer using the virtual USB port and designating that printer as the HP OfficeJet 6500 E709A series. I did so and made that the default printer. Immediately Word, Excel and Adobe documents were once again printing.

If you recently installed the printer or other programs in your computer then this problem occured. You may just need to reinstall the printer on your computer with your disc that came with the printer. What may of happened is that the program or updates that were installed deleted your print driver. To fix just reinstall and you should be fine. This is nothing you did wrong just the way things happen. Also you can check in your control panel and make sure your printer is turned on as your default printer.

Hp 6310 show offline wont print


Hi, how do you connect to the printer? USB/parallel/Network? Does it prints fine if you print an information page from the printer display/butons? I would try to uninstall the printer driver and install it again to start. It's definately a communication problem so it may take a few tries to get it to work again.

MY printer will not print Excel spreadsheets


I had this problem on my Vista pc but it was for all programs it would say its printing and nothing happened,what I did was leave the old one installed on the pc and created another and then deleted the old.But have you tried uninstalling excell and re-installing it to see if that changes anything, and when you reinstalled epson did you go to their site and download the updated firmware/software for the printer this could be another cause?!
