Question about HP PSC 500 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Printer non compactability

I have an HP PSC 500 multifunction machine that while old, still works great. I have newer printers, but still prefer this one.

I just bought a new computer and can't find the right cable to connect the printer to the USB ports. All the USB to parallel (IEEE 1284) cables that I have been able to get do not fit the printer. The parallel end is too wide. I have tried but can't find a reducer or other way to make the cables fit.

Please help!

    I too was having a problem finding an adapter cable, but finally found one at Fry's. They are on line or maybe you have a store near you. However while the laptop recognizes the printer and says it's installed, it will not print. The salesman who sold me the adapter cable was at a loss as to why HP made it so difficult to hook up to a USB port. If you find the answer, let me know. Thanks.

Every time I try to start my hp psc 500 it prints the test page . how to skip it?


The best way is to re-install your printer driver by downloading the latest driver from your printer`s manufacturer`s website. And make sure to un-install all old drivers.

Uninstall all your drivers (and delete the preferences) and download the Mac drivers from this link. The drivers that came with your printer were developed before Snow Leopard came out.

Your allinone is not compatible with new OS as you have already figures out. Contact the Company..hp and see if they have an updated disc for MS7.....

If you can get your hands on a new disc for the HP AIO's they are all similar...and you can try reinstalling using it.

Go to Walmart...buy new HP AIO.....install disc..connect old AIO....take back new one with disc.....problen solved. walmart will accept all returns.

Hi, yes I have problem with my hp psc 2200 series all-in-one printer. I am getting an error mesage that says "hp psc disconnected". I can send items from my computer to the printer and it will...


This is a very old machine. They are only designed to last around 3-4 years. Buying another multifunction from HP is a gamble. My office no longer sells due to warranty claims. You should purchase a new Canon Multifunction. Good luck!

Print cartridge in right stall not supported.


As a refiller, I've seen this many times. Usually it happens in the multifunction machines. If you put that cartridge in a stand alone printer, it will work good. HP all in ones blow a resistor in the cartridge making it useless to any all in one machine. Sadly, it is time to buy new.
