    printer won't print

  • mmatt Aug 08, 2008

    I have the same problem. My HP Photosmart 6180 suddenly wouldn't print and said "pending admin" It had been working fine. I realized that if I uninstalled and reinstalled the driver that it would correct itself. However, after months of uninstalling and reinstalling that stopped fixing the problem too. I assumed, at that point, that it must be the wireless connection.

    I just installed the driver for my husband's printer (not wireless) and the same thing is happening with this printer too. Is this Vista or is this the printers. I'm very frustrated and very confused. Someone please lend a hand!

Printer Driver for vista

You will find the drivers at this link, just enter the operating system...

Hp deskjet 960c

You say it stopped working mid-print... possible paper jam? Ink cartridge not clicked in all the way? (they should all line up evenly across the tops).
In control panel->printers and faxes, right click on Canoni960 and choose properties. In maintenance tab try to do nozzle check and print head alignment. In lower right corner is status monitor, click to see if any useful information in there.

I control panel under pinter it says paper yam

in this case , what iLL do is to "REBOOT" , UNISTALL EVERYTHING that has to do with the HP printer , I mean everything ,after deleting all driver of printer , go to START , click SEARCH , and write " hp deskjet 3740" click search , if something shows , delete it , then install the drivers again ,

this is in case you havent found the solution for this particular issue , hope this helps , AJ
