    Thanks--I tried your 'here' link, which I had used yesterday, and although it does give a choice of languages, and I choose English, it downloads in Italian on my PC. Any other suggestions? Could it have to do with some sort of version of Windows XP? I recetly had my hard disk replaced, could it be that? Very frustrated; please help.

    @Lance: I tried downloaded from where you suggested, and although I chose the English option, it downloaded in Italian. Can this be bc I live in Italy and recently had to replace the hard disk on my PC? Am running Windows XP. Any other suggestions?

    Coincidentally, 2 days ago I did the language thing. To change the language on your printer display:

    1. Press the Setup button
    2. Press 7 from the number pad and then press the OK button
    3. Press 1 from the number pad to select English
    4. Press 1 to confirm the language
    5. Press 1 to select USA as your country (if you are in the USA)
    6. Press 1 to confirm your location

    Then, after of course uninstalling EVERYTHING for the umpteenth time, I downloaded, online, ONLY the driver. And the problem was solved.

    Can't thank you enough for your prompt and thorough efforts to help me solve this problem. So much trial and error and just poking around--but when someone out there is responding and encouraging, it makes things a little easier.

    Happy New Year|

Did you mean the HP Officejet J5780 All-in-One Printer ? Was not able to find anything for a 5780.

Drivers and software for the J5780 and your operating system in English can be downloaded here.

You should be able to use the information from HP sites that is available in English to set up your printer. Suggest you use the Setup Poster for guidance.

    This is puzzling; but did a search on the HP Forums site and it seems to be a common problem with many diffferences of opinion on how to fix.

    First, did you do an uninstall before installing the English drivers? Some suggest this will resolve the problem and has worked for some but not all.

    Here are a couple of other solutions you can try:

    To change the language on your printer display:

    1. Press the Setup button

    2. Press 7 from the number pad and then press the OK button

    3. Press 1 from the number pad to select English

    4. Press 1 to confirm the language

    5. Press 1 to select USA as your country (if you are in the USA)

    6. Press 1 to confirm your location

    To change the language of the software:

    1. Download the latest drivers from the website from HP. The drivers extract them selves to a folder which you specify.

    2. Go to this folder and edit the "autorun.inf" file.

    3. Search for the word "language". You will find this word multiple times. But only in three cases the word is followed by a whole string of abbreviations of languages. Delete in these three cases all the language abbreviations that you don't need. For example, delete all but leave "enu"; which is English, if you only require English.

    4. There might be multiple "autorun_xxxxxx.inf" files. Edit them accordingly.

    Would be interested to hear if this works for you. Good luck!

My hp deskjet 5740 shows up with asian language not english in the set up boxes and it is impossible to work out fonts, paper feed, portrait/landscape etc, can you offer a fix

Just unstalled the driver by deleting the printer from the printer and fax in control panel and unplug your printer from the system.

Go to this link below and download the printer driver by selecting your operating System

Double click the installer and in the language column select english (if by default it can be any asian language). Connect your printer only after finishing installation.If the installtion wizard search for the printer hardware,select you will connect it later.

This will solve your problem.

Hp 5780 will not copy

Here is the link to the software and driver page for your printer:

Download and install the software located on this page.
If this does not solve the problem, you need to make sure your USB ports are enabled and/or installed correctly by checking in your system device manager.
Let me know if this solution does not work.

How do I insert printer cartridge

Just push them in horizontally ie. completely straight. You have to push pretty hard - just make sure you don't overdo it - until they go no further.
