Check the printer cable, re-seat the connectors.
If this does not work, try a different printer cable.

This looks like either you do not have correct drivers, or that the drivers didn't install or didn't install properly Double check that you have the proper drivers. If you do, try reinstalling them.

I had installed my hp psc 1510 on my last laptop, which ran XP. When I replaced it, my new computer ran Vista. When I hooked up my printer to the new computer it just downloaded the software automatically....


You have not installed the scan drivers. Go to your control panel, double click on add hardware, and run through the wizzard cycle. It should tell you exactly what you require, if it is not there, else it will just install it and you will be OK.

Colors out of computer aren't the same out of printer


When you print a test page, do all 3 colors show up? If they don't your cartridge is out of one color, or the print head for that color is cloged. When you install the printer on Vista, if you are using a USB cable, bring Vista all the way up and then plug in the USB cable. Vista should then tell you it found a new device. If it does, the Vista probley has a driver built into Vista. If it askes you if you want to use the existing drivers, say no and chose the drivers from the Vista printers.

Vista & Xp on same printer


You need to download the drivers from HP website for VISTA.
If you wish to work printer in networking then you can also add printer in the Laptop by that method.
Let me know more how you need to go for ( since if your XP is a desktop, then I would recommend you to keep the printer connect with it directly and just use a LAN cable for your Laptop.)

HP OJ 5610 Drivers-? Can not install printer.


In this case, there's no mystery as to the cause of the problem. You will be unable to use this printer with your operating system because there are no existing print drivers that work with 64 bit Vista. Your printer will work with Windows 98, Windows 2000, and Windows XP, but not with Vista at all.

You have only two options...use a different HP printer that will work with Vista, or get a PC that has one of the supported operating systems on it and connect your current printer to that PC.

Sorry. I know this isn't the answer you were looking for, but that's the best I can do until the proper drivers become available.

Cannot print with pixma 6220D on vista computer


Have you downloaded and installed the latest Vista drivers, available here? If not, uninstall and delete the current installed driver, and delete the icon for the iP6220D from your printers window. Download and install the Vista driver for your printer.

CANNOT PRINT WITH NEW COMPUTER


I had many problems with Vista fixed in this way.

1) Unistall drivers supplied with printer
2) Download new Vista drivers
3) Disconnect printer
4) Restart computer
5) Install new drivers (connect printer when it asks)
6) Restart computer

For me it now works.
