I hear you loud and clear, I have a HP OfficeJet wireless E709n I bought a couple of years ago and now it will go through the motions of printing but really saves on ink and paper it don't print nothing but blank paper. Apparently it's and older model printer,3-4 years old. That considered stone age to HP.If you can't the driver listed I would go to your search engine (I use google chrome) but what ever you use just and just type in "Find free driver download for HP Deskjet 656c InkJet printer" and search the web, it's out there somewhere. Also have you checked your print head in it? mine was clogged beyond belief. Use hot water at about 150F to soak the head in and a small paint brush with windex to clean them. Just in case that is your problem, it wasn't mine. I was told by a HP tech that I had some corrupt files in my computer that weren't telling the printer to put down ink. Yea, there's a file for that to, it tells the printer to charge the print cartridges. They have to have a small electrical charge on them in HP for them to work. I know a secret place to look for drivers, I remember it doesn't have my printer naturally but has a ton of deskJet printers. Let me look and I'll get back with you within 30 minutes and let you know if I find it. If I can I'll put you on it's trail,

    I went and googled for a driver and there's all kinds out there. Download the HP drivers. When the page comes up click on the top down load and it's all downhill from there. Be patient it take 6 hours to download the advanced version on my 6500.

You may be able to download a Windows 7 printer driver from the HP WEB site.
If there isn't one available then HP considers this printer too old or incompatible with Windows 7.
You can download the HP printer drivers from their supportWEB site. Please click on this link and select your model printer to download:- http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

Looking for printer software hp656c for my laptop windows 7 (32 bit)


Thats quite an old printer, it should work with a generic printer driver for basic text printing, otherwise try some of windows 7s built in HP injet drivers. I doubt you will find a specific windows 7 driver for this model, its out of support life

I am trying to install my printer to my laptop with Windows Vista and the laptop says it is ready. I click print and nothing happens. The software details say that I need to upgrade to Windows 98, NT, or...


I think that the printer driver that you installed in your computer is not a driver for Vista. I checked the supported operating systems and it's compatible with Win 2000 upto Win XP.

BUT, I saw this on a site:

Supported software
Windows Vista HP Deskjet 656c Printer driver utility.

Meaning that there's is a possibility that HP has a Vista driver for your printer. You need to contact HP and ask them where can you get the Vista driver for your printer. I had a feeling that it's the only way that would make the printer work.

Have a great day!

I don't have drivers of hp deskjet 656c printer to use this printer with window vista.


For installation in Windows Vista select (alternate) driver for HP Deskjet 660C.

Unable to install printer


Step one: Determine the appropriate compatible driver

Since there is no driver for the deskjet 656, the hp site says the alternative driver would be for the deskjet 660c. There is no need to download it as it comes with Vista, but we will need to install and configure it.

Here are some directions:


Step two: Install the driver


1. Verify that the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable is not connected to the printer.

2. Click the Windows icon ( start ), click Control Panel , click Hardware & Sounds , and then click Printers .

3. Click Add a printer .

4. Click Add a local printer .

5. Select the Use an existing port check box.

6.In the Use an existing port drop-down list, select LPT1: (Printer Port) , and then click Next .

7. Under Manufacturer on the Install the printer driver dialog box, select HP .

8. Under Printers , select the appropriate alternate driver for the printer (in your case, the 660c) , and then click Next .

9. In the Printer name text box, type the printer name, and then click Next . The printer driver starts to install.

NOTE: The name of the alternate driver displays as the default name. Change this name to the name of your printer, if desired.

10. After the computer displays a message that the printer was successfully added, connect the USB cable to the printer and to the computer.

11. On the Found New Hardware screen, click Cancel .

NOTE: If multiple pop-up windows display, click Cancel on each window.



Step three: Configure the driver

1. In the printer folder, right-click the name of the printer, and then click Properties .

2. Click the Ports tab.

3. Change the port from LPT1 to USB

4. Click Apply .


Step four: Print a test page

1. Click the General tab.

2. Click Print Test Page .
