My hp deskjet printer d4260 is not printing when i send i print job to it


if you have updated drivers from HP, Uninstall them, and install the drivers from the original CD that came with the printer. the updated drivers from HP don't work well with Windows 7.

Printer will not operate on Windows 7 computer.Computer was upgraded from Vista to 7. Vista was completely removed before installing 7. Tried downloading new drivers, didnot work.


Possibly HP rare not supporting this printer in the new OS, although most Vista drivers are compatible with Windows 7, so have you tried installing the original drivers that came with the printer?

Also, Windows 7 has a driver "compatibility mode". Here is use of the mode explained on the Microsoft tech forum:

HP 5940: Can't clean print nozzles- the services facility is not installed but downloading drivers from net doesn't fix this. What next?


You can download the entire contents of your original installation CD from HP's site, look for it.
Also, try removing the cartridges and set the print head in household ammonia for 15-20 minutes, then blot on absorbent paper towels (don't scrub, it may pick up fibers) until you see that the printing surface of the cartridge is bleeding well.
