I don't have a solution for this problem. I have a comment. I have the same types of issues with my HP. I hate HP. Why is it that we can design software to remotely fly fighter jets but we can't get reliable software to print wirelessly? I am now going to throw my HP Photosmart C4580 All-in-One in the road.

You did not mention what is the make and model of your old pc. If but this time it seems like your printer needs to be installed again using apple computer. Feel free to write again. Thanks.

Open whatever program you're using for virus protection and/or firewall, and turn that OFF temporarily. If that solves the problem, then start looking for port blocking on the firewall software. You might also try the ADMIN screen on the router - maybe Log in and look to see if a firewall or port blocking feature of the router has been turned on. You can discover the Router IP by opening a COMMAND PROMPT (black screen, white text), then typing ipconfig /all and "enter". The Gateway address will be displayed along with a lot of other information, including the IP of your PC.

It's a new cartridge you fitted? If not, it's probably because it genuinely is empty. If new: Remove all the cartridges. Switch off the printer. Switch the printer off and reinstall the cartridges. Switch the printer on. Switch the printer off. If you continue to receive the same error message it's because the cartridge isn't fitted/seated correctly, or that cartridge has a problem.

you must convert to text, most scans save as pdf or tiff (yours is most likely a tiff) choose save as... and change extension to .wrd or .doc

Most times this seems to be a problem with the electrical connections to the cartridge. A q tip moistened with water or denatured alcohol can be used to CAREFULLY clean the contacts on the cartridge and the carriage , being especially careful not to hook or damage the contacts in the carriage. See the link below. EmptyPortlet

With respect to color usage during greyscale printing: Unfortunately, with many of the newer inkjet printer models & printer drivers, printing in greyscale actually consumes more color ink than normal draft printing. If you wish to save on color ink, it is suggested to do one of the following as available in your specific printer driver/software:
    -Print in Normal - Draft mode (or super draft if available), plain paper. -Print in Black & White mode only* - Draft mode on plain paper (typically this is the best way to save on ink/printing costs). -For internet page printing, print using CleanPrint (3rd party software for printing most internet-based content from all major internet browsers. NOTE: not affiliated with Inkjet411): http://www.formatdynamics.com/cleanprint-4-0/ -Keep printer on at all times; power up cycles typically consume large amounts of ink (per Consumer Reports, Aug 2013 issue). * Most printer models will still consume a small percentage of color ink due to normal ink/printer maintenance, such as between job 'spitting'. The purpose is to ensure the printhead is maintained to avoid clogging. ----- Regarding HP 74, 75, 74XL or 75XL repurchase or ink cartridge refilling, if you unable to find a retail / refill store close to you and you are trying to cut ink costs, may we suggest you try a remanufactured ink cartridge from http://www.inkplicity.com/ as their ink cartridges typically have the lowest cost in the USA, have a high reliability rating, come with a 1-year warranty and provide free shipping for all orders above $20 (available to US residents only). Here is a link to retail ink cartridge refill stores: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=483 ----- For any additional questions please contact us directly: [email protected] -Thank you Inkjet411 Team Member

Turn it off and pull the plug. Now turn it on and off twice. Now plug it back in and try it.
