Just wish I would have looked this up an hour ago. Then I would have only been trying to get the printer to work for 15 mins. THANKS, JAMES!!!

I followed the directions. Downloaded the 5600 driver. Changed the port to USB001.
When I print, it prints pages and pages and pages of nothing but one line of gibberish across the top. I'm not sure how many pages it will print, I was finally able to stop it after about 20 the first attempt. I've tried several times, including deleting the device and starting over but the same thing happens every time.

You know how I solved the problem once and for all? I just went out and bought a new $20 printer and had it shipped to my house for free.
I'm doing this from now on instead of buying ink.

Shoot! It still won't print a photo even after I followed your instructions with the driver thing. I am at a loss. It printer the photo out on regular paper but not my 4X6 phot paper. Are there any answers for this??

Here I am again, sorry. You instructions DID work for me! I was too dim-witted to check the printer itself & I now saw on the display some instruction. Now I'm printing great! Thank you again!!

I recenlty upgraded to windows 7 and needed to reload many programs. I have misplaced my installation CDs for my HP Photosmart 7660. I was able to download the driver, but without this CD the printer does not work. Can I download this installation inflrmation from HP?
