My hp psc 1210 won't work with vista

I just got a new laptop and I'm trying to use my hp psc 1210. It worked fine with my old computer, only now when I plug it into the usb port my computer doesnt even seem to recognize that it's there. I can't print anything, and the hp.com site says that I don't need a driver download for Vista, that vista will recognize when I plug the usb into the port

I had a similar problem! Here is what eventually worked for me, after searching through postings for hours on end...

First, I made sure I had the new driver. Second, (and this might be different for you), my computer recognized my printer, but any time I sent something to print, it never made its way there. The little printer icon at the bottom said 1 document pending, then quickly said 0 documents pending, but nothing ever printed. When I ran HP diagnostics, it said everything was okay with the printer, and even printed a test page! But still nothing from any other program. So, eventually I went to control panel, then printers, then I clicked on the HP printer, then right clicked and went to properties. I changed two things in here, and I'm not sure which one was the solution. First, I changed the security settings (in the security tab) so that every user had access to all options for the printer. Second, on the advanced tab, I selected print directly to printer instead of the spool print documents option. And tada it worked!

May not solve anyone elses problem, but I didn't see this solution in any of the posting sites, so I thought I'd share it. Give it a try!

I have no idea what is wrong with my scanner. My computer won't even acknowledge it's existence anymore. But the printer function on my HP 2355 works fine.


1. Verify electricity
2. Verify connected to computer still. (USB assumed)
Unplug it and plug it back in at both ends of the wire. Make sure USB is not in a network port.
3. Pull electric from printer 3 min. Restart computer.
4. Test; if no joy reinstall printer, but do not plug in USB until asked for it.

Not able recognize the usb device for windows 7


If you can, check that the printer is still recognized on another pc. It's possible that the printer is faulty.
If it does work on another pc, then the next step is to try a different USB port on your computer, preferabbly one at the back of the computer, not the front.
Also make sure you have install the drivers before you connect it to your computer.

Computer won't recongnize printer


The problem is with the device driver. Every piece of hardware has a corresponding software program called a device driver to let Vista/XP know it is there and what it does and how to do it. If a disc came with your printer then that is what loads the device driver. However, with USB devices you must load the driver with the USB cable unplugged from the printer. Then once the driver loads then plug in the printer...nobody knows exactly why but that is with all USB devices. So unplug and load the disc, then plug and see if it works. You may have to reboot..if that does not work let me know as they are a couple of ways to get it to working. Good luck and keep me updated. Pls rate this solution.
