Re: Windows 7 64bit driver for HP 1280 deskjet

Use the hp1280 driver in for Windows Vista 64bit. It works!!!!!... so far i've had no problems A3 and other sizes. I've searched most of the forums and believe me it took me forever to find that answer. I hope it works for you

 

My question is can this printer print on board paper 220gsm? What type of paper should I choose from the choices?

Has anyone tried this?

Hello adrevdv1,

Re: Windows 7 64bit driver for HP 1280 deskjet

Grrrrrrr SOOOOOOOOOOO frustrated!!!!

 

FInally find something in the forum to connect my 1280 and it won't load (albeit by a hp employee but not on behalf of hp)!  Has it been removed?

 

So fed up of restarting my laptop & printer and adding and removing.  Updating Windows etc etc etc - spent £100 on hp  printer ink and can't get my A3 1280 printer to work with my all singing all dancing laptop!!!!

 

Printer still works on my old dog of a PC but what use is that when I've retired the old dog!  

 

Have spent sooooo many hours trying to resolve, and finally think I'm getting somewhere and stalls!!!  Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr 

 

ONE VERY FRUSTRATED PUPPY!!!

Andre,

 

Have you resolved?

 

Am so fed up of being routed to

"In the Install the printer driver window, under Manufacturer click HP, and then search for you driver under Printers.  If the driver does not show up under HP, try looking under Hewlett Packard."
When my printer is NOT listed!!!!

Hello uniquelyME,

 

I just noticed that it wasn't available, even when I checked via Windows Update. I would suggest that you install an alternate driver. The Deskjet 1220c or the Deskjet 9800 shoudl both work and both of these are A3 printers.

THAT'S IT!!!  I GIVE UP!!!!

 

All the hours have spent trying to get it working.....

 

I give up!  Time to spend an hour or two looking for an A3 printer by another manufacturer!!!  Sorry hp, my last computer was an hp - thought your 1280 was `da bomb' but when it won't work after goodness knows how many hours & wasting £100 on ink.

AM WELL & TRULY P.O.'d & DONE!!!

Re: Windows 7 64bit driver for HP 1280 deskjet

Good day. All,

 

 I got installed the Deskjet 1280 driver into my new laptop (OS - Window 7 - 64bit). Maybe u can try the step as below:-

 

 1) Go to "Control Panel".

 2) Go to "View Devices &  Printers".

 3) Go to "Add a Printer"

 4) Go to "Add a local printer"

 5) Click "HP" on Manufacturer item.

 6) Choose "HP Deskjet 1200C" 

 7) Click "Next"

 8) Choose "Use the driver that is currently installed".

 9) Then follow steps on the screen.

 

 Enjoy ~~ :smileyhappy:

Hi,

 

 I am using 1220C to replace the 1280, so far is working well.
