Just keep on trying...again remove the software from the control panel..and try to re install it....maybe you just need to close any anti virus and firewall software before re installing it..

Printer HP Photosmart C5180 Series cannot be contacted over the network

Check with HP for a Windows 7 driver for the printer. HP Ink Jets require proper drivers to work correctly. Once you have downloaded and installed the drivers try connecting again.
If you have installed the drivers and Windows 7 still refuses to "talk" to the printer, you may have to adjust your advanced network settings as well. Open up the Network and Sharing center, click on advanced sharing settings and make sure file and printer sharing is turned on. Also check "File Sharing Connections" and enable file sharing for devices that use 40 or 56 bit encryption.
If that fails to work you may need to speak with HP support for further assistance.

I was given a Lexmark x7170 printer by a friend, but had no install disc. I downloaded the necessary driver for Windows XP and it has been working fine. I want to scan some documents into a word processor,...

Hello. The Lexmark OCR software can only be installed using the installation cd for your printer. The scan software is not available for download online since it's a big file. I would advise you to call Lexmark for assistance with the installation cd. They might send you one for free. Hope I can assist you more with this.

Printer works but will not scan.

Here's my GEEK-steer ...

First, try a quick "Hot Plug":

  1. Disconnect the USB cable from the printer.
  2. Wait 10 sec's.
  3. Reconnect the USB cable.
  4. Test scan again.
No joy? Oh well, it was a long shot anyway. In that case, let's continue the journey ...

"...unable to COMPLETE the driver downloads using the disc which came with the printer bu have got it working using the WINDOWS WIZARD FACILITY." ... What I'm hearing is:

  1. You have previously attempted to install the printer using the HP disk that came with it, but it was never COMPLETED successfully.
  2. It was then subsequently installed using only the resident Windows generic drivers ("WINDOWS WIZARD FACILITY"/Device Manager).
If that is essentially accurate, then there is both your problem AND YOUR SOLUTION. Printers can be the most persnickety of all devices to install ... they want what they want, and that's just the way it's gonna be! Although Windows commendably satisfied your printer with satisfactory enough drivers to get it working, it obviously didn't meet the mark well enough to facilitate scanning.

As a cardinal rule, I employ the dreaded (and much-too-often advised) "uninstall/reinstall" as an absolute final resort. In this case though, that is the most advisable thing for you to do. Most devices (and printers especially) need to be installed using the latest and best (usually from its manufacturer) drivers available.
Therefore ...


  1. Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs
  2. Select the HP all-in-one software entry in the list of installed programs.
  3. Click Remove.
  4. Disconnect the USB cable from the computer.
  5. Restart (reboot) your PC.

Good luck, and post back with a status report and/or any further questions.

Will not print in color

I had the same problem with my printer which is identical to yours. I called the tollfree number for HP products and was advised by the techician to try a "cold restart" , which simply means to unplug the power cord and replug it a few seconds later. It was a simple solution which fixed my printer's problem.
Hope it works for you, too.

Installation problem with hp 05280 printer

There are many variations on problems with HP printer install. A crude method which worked for me on 2 occasions was simply to pull printer power cord out and reinsert after 30 secs. The installation may then complete. This is suggested by HP but you may not have tried it.

I have had many of problems with HP printer installs on different PCs and OS versions. In some cases if you just install the drivers only and ignore the bloated software that comes with them you can get a working setup. Use other applications for scanning etc..
I have had HP printers working fine only for XPSP3 to come along and render them useless.
Following HPs instructions for level uninstall and reinstall may work also. Firewall and antivirus off is strogly advised.
Good luck.
