HP6210 all in one set-up won't work on Vista System Laptop


Did you get an error when installing,or did it install. What happened when you plunged in the printer
when the software told you to plug it in, did windows say found new hardware and you let it install a windows driver or did you shut down the window so it would install the hp driver.
Go to start,control panel,programs, look and see if the hp software is listed,if not it did not install,
try it again.
With the hp printer plugged into your laptop, go to devise mgr and look under portable device,it should
show your printer model#, rt click on the model # and then on driver, does it say hp or windows,if it says
windows then the hp driver did not get installed, put in the disk, then click on update driver and pick browse computer, and point it to the disk.

HP has a vista driver for your printer, so you need to check the set up info that came with it to see
if the vista driver in on the disk. You can always just download the driver software from HP,pick the vista
one and install it. But make sure that the software is removed from the program list if it was in there before you install again. Hope it works out, its very hard to cover everything so if any more Q's
just post back.

I HAVE A NEW PC AND AM RUNNING WINDOWS VISTA HOW DO i INSTALL MY PHOTOSMART 2610 PRINTER? i HAVE A CD FOR WINDOWS XP sorry Didn't know caps lock was on.


Well first off, you're going to have to download the Vista drivers for the 2610 from the HP site.

Once you download them, unzip the file (just doulbe click it to unzip) and make note of where it unzipped to (it will say something like C:\drivers\xxxx

The go to your printer window.
Click the "Add printer" and local install. When it asks about drivers (what kind of printer you have) click "Have Disk" and point it at the folder the download unzipped to.

That's about it.

You don't need the install disk.

***Note***
In some cases, the download file will be a complete install routine. In that case, once you unzip it, sometimes it will go right into the install, in other instances, you have to look at the folder it unzipped to, and look for a setup.exe file

1. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL and PRINTERS.
2. Click the ADD PRINTER button. If you do not see ADD PRINTER, right-click in the PRINTERS window and select ADD PRINTER from the menu.
3. The ADD PRINTER wizard window will appear select Add a Local Printer.
4. Select the port the printer is connected to from the drop down window beside Use an Existing Port, click NEXT.
5. In the next window select EPSON under Manufacturers and your printer model under Printers.
6. In the Type a Printer Name window, Set as Default is automatically selected. If you, have another printer that will be the default simply remove the check and click NEXT to install the driver.
7. Ensure the printer is directly connected to the computer and that the printer is ready to print. Click PRINT TEST PAGE to test the printer.
8. Once the test page has printed, click FINISH to exit the wizard.
*NOTE:
-Depending on your system the computer may ask for your Windows disk, if so insert your Windows CD into your CD-ROM drive and click OK.
-As the driver is part of Windows Vista, there is no Status Monitor available for your printer. Some printers may have an INK LEVELS options included as part of the resident driver. Otherwise, the printer does have its own indicators. The RED error light will flash when the printer is low on ink and go solid when it is out.
-If the ink levels do not appear, click GET INK LEVELS from the MAIN tab of the printer driver. Ensure the printer is directly connected to the computer as the Ink Levels does rely on full bidirectional communication.

Not install for windows vista


In any Windows environment, the printer itself becomes a dummy terminal and all changes to the printer will be over-ridden by the application or the operating system.

Windows Vista should automatically detect and install devices attached to the computer. Simply connect the printer to your computer and power it on.

If the driver does not automatically install, you can follow the steps below to install a resident driver which is part of Windows Vista. The resident driver installation should only be used if the printer is not detected and installed.

1. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL and PRINTERS.
2. Click the ADD PRINTER button. If you do not see ADD PRINTER, right-click in the PRINTERS window and select ADD PRINTER from the menu.
3. The ADD PRINTER wizard window will appear select Add a Local Printer.
4. Select the port the printer is connected to from the drop down window beside Use an Existing Port, click NEXT.
5. In the next window select EPSON under Manufacturers and your printer model under Printers.
6. In the Type a Printer Name window, Set as Default is automatically selected. If you, have another printer that will be the default simply remove the check and click NEXT to install the driver.
7. Ensure the printer is directly connected to the computer and that the printer is ready to print. Click PRINT TEST PAGE to test the printer.
8. Once the test page has printed, click FINISH to exit the wizard.

*NOTE: Depending on your system the computer may ask for your Windows disk, if so insert your Windows CD into your CD-ROM drive and click OK.

To make adjustments to the output quality and speed in Windows Vista, please do the following:

1. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL, and PRINTERS.
2. Right click on the printer icon, and choose PRINTER PREFERENCES.
3. Click on the ADVANCED button in the bottom right corner.
4. Click on the GRAPHICS option and click the down arrow.
5. Choose the lowest number to drop your resolution and pick up your speed.
6. Click on PRINT FEATURES and choose the option HIGH SPEED ON.
7. Click OK to apply the changes.
8. Once again right click on the icon for your printer, and choose the PROPERTIES tab.
9. Click on the ADVANCED tab and click on the button called PRINT DIRECTLY TO THE PRINTER.
10. Click APPLY (if applicable) and/or click OK to apply the changes.

The driver you are using is a graphics driver and may not have the adequate speed for your purposes. In Windows VISTA there are more basic drivers which respond better to custom page sizes and speed adjustments. Windows also has a driver called GENERIC TEXT ONLY which is made as a universal driver for all printers just for speed. To add in either of these drivers please do the following:

1. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL and PRINTERS.
2. In the left hand column choose the option ADD PRINTER. The ADD PRINTER WIZARD comes up, click on NEXT.
3. Select Add a Local Printer.
4. Click on NEXT.
5. Select the port the printer is connected to from the drop down window beside Use an Existing Port, click NEXT.
6. In the next window select EPSON under Manufacturer. Please use the guide below to select an appropriate Emulation driver. If you wanted to install the Windows universal driver, choose GENERIC under Manufacturer and choose TEXT ONLY, click NEXT.

EPSON LQ SERIES (136): Used for LQ wide carriage printers
EPSON LQ SERIES (80): Used for LQ narrow carriage printers

EPSON LX SERIES (136): Used for LX wide carriage printers
EPSON LX SERIES (80): Used for LX narrow carriage printers

EPSON FX SERIES (136): Used for FX wide carriage printers
EPSON FX SERIES (80): Used for FX narrow carriage printers

7. In the Type a Printer Name window, Set as Default is automatically selected. If you, have another printer that will be the default simply remove the check and click NEXT to install the driver.
8. Ensure the printer is directly connected to the computer and that the printer is ready to print. Click PRINT TEST PAGE to test the printer.
9. Once the test page has printed, click FINISH to exit the wizard.

*NOTE: Depending on your system the computer may ask for your Windows disk, if so insert your Windows CD into your CD-ROM drive and click OK.
