Hi,

 

You need the following driver before adding the 7510 using 10.8 driver:

Good luck.

Re: Maverick and Photosmart 7150 printer problems

Hello

 

I believe the HP Photosmart 7150 was released back around 2002.    

 

Which version of OSX did you upgrade from ?   Were you running previous OS X 10.6 when you upgraded to new 10.9 ?

 

Unfortunately, the HP Photosmart 7150 has not been supported for some time now with the last few releases of OS X.

Hi,

 

Sorry, I looked at the one in front of me, which is  a 7510.

 

Regards.

Re: Maverick and Photosmart 7150 printer problems

OK  great - your HP Photosmart 7510 is supported now using Apple Software Updates

 

if your HP Photosmart 7510 was working with OS X 10.7 or 10.8, the HP sofware and drivers will continue to work fine with new OS X Mavericks after an OS upgrade.

 

If you have a new Mac or clean OS X Mavericks system, HP also provides the HP Photosmart 7510 and ImageCapture scan files via Apple Software Update right now.  Just make sure the printer is turned on and connected to the Mac when you create the printer queue (add printer).

Re: Maverick and Photosmart 7150 printer problems

Thanks all so much for quick responses .. Looks like for now I'll be uninstalling Maverick until I can afford a new printer :smileysad: as my printer is in fact the 7150 !! Old but works well ( or at least did until I installed Maverick !!) thought I was pushing my luck going from 10.6 to 10.9 !!

You can use the Hp Photosmart 8200 series driver. It works well with Maverick. Good luck.

Re: Maverick and Photosmart 7150 printer problems

I was finally able to get my HP PhotoSmart 7510 to work.  I uninstalled previous drivers/software and removed the printer. I then added the printer again.  Note that I am using OS X Maverick.
