Vista - HP Laserjet scan issue

I have a Vista pc and a HP Laserjet printer. I was able to install the latest drivers from the HP site for printing and scanning. I can print fine, but cannot and do not have the option to scan.

The process fails everytime I try to scan. I do not have the original cd.

Any ideas on how to go about fixing this issue.

Thanks

Try installing the software (you can download it from the site) for XP in Vista, usually that works fine.

When i give a print command this error apears on the paper : pcl xl error subsystem:kernel error:illegaltag operator:0xfe


1st: turn off your printer, wait 5 minutes, turn on again. Try to print again and see if the problem is solved. If this doesn't work:
2nd: de-install your printer from your computer, download the latest driver for your operating system, install your printer again. And if this doesn't work, download the latest HP Laserjet generic driver and install it again.
You can find the drivers on the support page from HP, searching for the model printer that you have and select the driver for your operating system (windows xp, vista, 7..)

HP Photosmart C5250 All-in-one, when printing I get a blank page and no printouts. Is having problem with my Compaq Laptop with Windows Vista not recognizing all the features the printer has.


Sounds like a driver issue.

I would re-install the latest Vista driver for the printer as well as re-install the latest version of the HP software. You should be able to get both from the HP site.

When i ordered a job ( printing) from my PC, which is directly connected through USB port, the printer waits more than 2 hrs to print. It is very annoying to wait that much time for printing.


That is rather a long time to wait for a print out, I agree.

See my guide entitled How to Install the latest drivers for Hewlett Packard Printer!!!
Installing the latest drivers may solve this problem.

Also try the following:
1.) Navigate to the Windows control panel and double click Printers and Faxes.
2.) Right click your printer and select properties.
3.) Click the advanced tab and set the following:
4.) Starting from the top "Select Always available."
5.) Priority set to 1
6.) Select "Spool print documents so program finishes printing faster."
7.) Select "Start printing immediately."
8.) Select/tick "Enable Advanced printing features."

Now click Apply and then click Ok.

Take care!

Can't define custom paper size on HP2600n after Vista upgrade


Went to HP support web site and found the following info. The HP drivers link will take to their download site If you haven't installed the Vista Print drivers yet.

Our church bought new computers with Vista Busines two years ago and after struggling with it for 6 months went back XP Pro. This was before any Vista service packs had been released so I'm not sure if these issues have improved. We are in no hurry to upgrade to Vista. Some articles I've read about 6 months ago recommended waiting for windows 7. I haven't followed how the release of windows 7 is going. Vista is a VERY DIFFERENT ANIMAL and can be frustrating. Been there and I feel your pain.

Can only print one copy at a time


Download the latest driver from HP => http://www.hp.com/#Support

It's version 4.7 released on November 25, 2008. I recommend downloading PCL6 as it supports 1200dpi. PCL5 only supports 600dpi. Windows Vista comes installed with PCL5.

The driver took a while to install about 4-5 minutes on Vista 32 bit Home Edition. I thought I hung as mentioned above. I left to do something else and came back and it was finished.

I was having trouble with the HP1200 not manual duplexing and printing one page only. The new driver fixed the issue.

First, you need to try update the latest microsoft office patch file from microsoft or you can open the MS Word, go to "HELP" menu select the update MS Word or related. Try the latest patch file first. You also can try windows update and select custom update, see their list have this problem solution or not. Second, you need to go to HP website download latest driver for LJ1020 and suitable use on Vista. Lastly, if still not solve the problem, you need this problem/issue to microsoft, ask their solutions. Kent
