You need to reinstall the driver to get this printer up and running again, try to find the cd from your printer and reinstall, or donload the recent driver on the web, make sure you select the right OS platform, it is usually easy to follow step by step procedure.


it is not automatic though when you make system recovery, it only repairs your pc not the external peripheral

hope this helps

You don't need the original HP install disc. Go to the H Support site and download and install the newest one listed for your operating system. Turn the printer off and unplug it, wait 10 secs and plug it back in after installing the latest driver and software. Should work fine for you.

Can't install 1210 printer


Insert the software disc for the HP 1210 printer before you plug the printer into the computer with the USB cable. Allow the disc to install the software. You will be prompted to choose a destination for the software.
Plug in the printer USB cable to the computer when the installation program tells you to. This will be after it has installed any drivers that you need to run the printer on the computer.
Complete the installation by running a print test to make sure the printer software is installed correctly. You may remove the disc after the print test is complete. Installation without a Disc Visit the website http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html to find the available drivers needed to run the printer on your computer. On this page, select "Download drivers and software." Enter "HP 1210 printer" in the product box and click the arrow to find the drivers. Select your printer from the list provided. This will take you to the next page, on which you will indicate your operating system. Select the "HP Officejet and PSC Full Feature Software and Driver" under "Driver" to begin the download. After the download is complete, you can open the file from the download location and install the software and drivers. Follow the installation software's prompts, after you finish download the drivers you need to double click it,it will give you the option to RUN or DON'T RUN the driver click on RUN and it would continue the installation. Run a test print.

Did not get a recovery disc


Never buy a computer unless the person selling gives you the install discs. What has happened to ypu is a typical example this simple advice. You would not buy a car with no engine, so why buy a computer with no installation discs!

I've been messing about with my PC's system and now can't print


Lexmark Driver CD's included in the printer upon purchase does not include Vista drivers, this includes all the printers made by Lexmark until early 2009.
Suggestions:
- Download the driver in the web (www.lexmark.com).
- Completely uninstall all the previous Lexmark printers, including those copies made in the Printers folder (if any), delete them manually (click and press delete on keyboard).
- Reboot your PC.
- Remove the USB cable.
- Unplug the Printer, Remove the Black Power Supply at the back of the printer (for 20 seconds), put power supply back in.
- Instal the new downloaded driver. Follow instructions. DO NOT INSERT USB CABLE, unless instructed by the installer.
- It should work.
- Ding me if problems persist.

Installing printer


In linux there is CUPS as the default printing system. It is usually compatible with HP printers and some others too. But lexmark printer drivers should be obtained from the lunux support site or the manufacturer's website.
