"would you like to download and install software for “hp photosmart c4200 series”?

 I get this message on my mac running Mountain Lion 10.8.1-Software update does not help. It printed fine on 10.7. I can still access the scanner. Any ideas?

Hi,

Make sure to reboot the MAc and chack for any change.

 

If that does not help try resetting the pritning system and then re-add the printer:

*Be aware that resetting the printer system will remove any existing print queue and reset any customized driver settings.

Click the Apple menu, and then click System Preferences .
Select Print & Scan.
Right-click (or Ctrl + click) your product in the Printers list in the left panel, and then click Reset printing system .
Click OK to confirm the reset.
Type your user Name and Password .
Click OK . The printing system resets.

 

Now click the Plus sign and try adding the printer again.

 

IF any of the steps above tdoes not resolve the problem download and install the package below:

Once the installation completes, open System Preferences > Print & Scan and add the printer again.

 

As well also ensure the printer directly conneted to the Mac, not through any USB hub or extention and the USB is not longer than 2-3m long.

 

Please let me know if any further problem,

Shlomi

FYI - I have been getting this same message on Mountain Lion for the HP Laserjet 1022. At no time is the printer non-functional, but each time I log out of my user account and log back in, the message reappears. Software update does not help. I have tried resetting the printing system as outlined without success. I am currently downloading the driver update and will report back here with the results. Thanks for the driver download link - first time I've found this and I've been searching for a potential solution off and on since Christmas. :smileyvery-happy:
