HP4180 will not print.

Have un- and re-installed drivers from both the original CD and downloaded from HP's site.  Other suggestions?

Re: HP4180 will not print.

wo8f,

This happens when you fail to remove the other HP support programs for the printer.

Just go into Control Panel,

1) uninstall a program, and remove all Hp Deskjet programs.

2) in Printers, remove any reference to that printer.

 

Then run the install CD.

wb2001,

 

Thank you.  I uninstalled all hp printing / imaging devices (2 in total), cleaned the registry with CCleaner, downloaded the current driver-set from HP, did a clean/full reinstall.  It worked!  Thank you!
