Title: Printer problems
HunterFisher - August 31, 2008 09:50 PM (GMT)
Our printer has been acting up, then it said ''out of paper, and it wasn't. Replaced printer. Got a cheap HP Deskjet D1520. Hooked everything up and can't get it to work,........ says it's out of paper also. Can anyone help me out here? We don't know what to do next. :dunno: :HeadBang:

maybe try removing your the program and re-installing it. :dunno: VISTA!!!!! could be anything, from some of the stories I have heard with it, but I would just try the basics first Ken, then well you know a BIGGER HAMMER ALWAYS WORKS WELL :)

No ideas on this end. Try reinstalling the drivers, and you might try a different USB cord. We don't have Vista here, but it doesn't sound like a computer problem. More of a printer problem because the printer sounds like it's talking to the computer to tell it's out of paper. :dunno:
Don (and I brought Le in on this one as well)

I wouldn't think it is a computer problem. Although my concern is that you have two printers saying the same thing. I would first look at the sensors at the back or bottom of the paper tray for some kind of interference that's preventing it from feeling the paper. If it is a brand new printer I would look for some packing tape that didn't get removed. Or you could have a paper jam in the printer somewhere.

It has to be Vista..well maybe, probably... :D
You will have to uninstall every printer that shows up in printers and faxes...Then make sure you have uninstalled every driver for any printer that is there. Reboot every time you uninstall anything...Uninstall the drivers first.......
Then uninstall the printers... Get a good registry program and run it to delete any left over fragments of drivers...If you know how...write down the names of all the printers and go into the registry and delete any thing that has that name...
I use registry cure to clean my registry and I use tune up utilities 2008 to clean up crap that clogs up my computer and it has several good programs that defrag and fix problems in the computer...
If you guys need a registry program-especially registry cure and or tune up utilities, let me know.. Go to their websites and download the program and send me an email address and I'll send you a key gen for them so you can use them. They work and everyone should have a couple of them...

I just bought a new computer with vista and if you read all the instructions on installing software you will see it says you need to install all the drivers to each software i am haveing the same problems as you kenny ..
The best os that microsoft made was Windows XP pro.......
Its going to take me forever to learn this vista stuff :HeadBang: :HeadBang:

Guess I was wrong again. If Vista is causing that much problems. I am going to do what Leo is doing. Wait for the vista relacement. I really wanted to buy a new computer before winter. But I don't need those problems.
Good Luck Kenny and Andy!

Chuck, get the computer and wipe it clean and install xp pro....
I have copies of XP Pro in anyone needs one.
All you have to do is set your dvd or cd as first boot device, reboot and follow the instructions to wipe it clean and install a new copy of XP Pro.....
I can walk anyone through the process. I've done it at least 50 times.. :D

Thanks for all the tips guys, we really appriciated them. :ThumbsUp: But get this, when the wife turned this thing on this morning, the printer worked fine. :o She said a little box in the middle of the screen came up saying, ''printer ready''. Can ya figure that one out. It's like the computer thought it over all night and, decided to allow it in. :dunno:

I heard Vista really slowed down the computer, but this is ridiculous... :D
Must be a female computer if it took that long for it to make up its mind... :yahoo:

I always heard that a man is the first to go because a woman is alway running late.
And I also heard that good things come to those that wait.
And I also thing I may keep my machine if it takes Vista a day to respond :ROFL:
