Re: Deskjet 710/720/810/820/1000 Series printers - Patch for 64 bit Vista and Windows 7

The test page was the Pinter based output "HP DeskJet 750c Series" showing lines, colors and type face.

 

I am using a USB converter which worked with my Windows 7 Vista 64 bit once I downloaded and installed the patch.

 

Unsure of the model.  How would I tell the model?

 

Connected to USB Port 002.

 

My OS is Windows 8 64 bit.

 

This information indicates that the printer can work on a Windows 8 64 bit if the right patch can be found.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Deskjet 710/720/810/820/1000 Series printers - Patch for 64 bit Vista and Windows 7

If somebody can help me out, I'm still looking for advice on how to tell whether the problem I am having is due to the cable or not. I am running Windows 7 64-bit and here is what happens: The parallel-USB cable shows up as a device in Devices and Printers, but the printer is not detected.

 

Thanks

You may have to "install" the cable first.   This happened when I attached my USB to Parallel cable to my SONY XP 32-bit computer.  My computer then saw the printr

My Kudos to you, Bob.  Worked like a charm.

 

But now, I re-attached my 722c to my 32-bit XP computer, which is networked to my 64-bit Windows 7 computer.  How do I print from my Windows 7 computer, over my LAN  to the printer?   I am really confused on this.  Thanks, Bob.

First share the printer from your XP machine using the standard sharing.  Click Start, Printers and Faxes, right click on the Deskjet 720 series, Sharing, Enable Sharing.  Give it a name that would be recognizable such as HP722, Apply.  Next on the Windows 7 machine go Start,  Devices and Printers, Add a Printer, Local Printer, Create a Port, Local Port, \\Computername\Printername (use the actual share name for the  XP computer and printer), OK, then  select the Hewlett-Packard HP Deskjet 720 series driver.

TheRev01, thank you for the suggestion. Are there steps I should take to install the cable? It was auto-detected when I connected it and the driver was automatically updated.

Re: Deskjet 710/720/810/820/1000 Series printers - Patch for 64 bit Vista and Windows 7

When I plugged my cable into the computer, the same thing happened.  It was automatically installed.  Then, when I plugged the cable into my Deskjet 722C printer the printer was detected and installed.  I don't remember doing anything else. 

 

The printer had already been installed on my parallel port and used for a long time, but I then disconnected it and plugged a different printer into that parallel port.

 

Since I only had one parallel port and wanted both printers attached, I bought the USB-Parallel Converter cable.  It is an Inland brand.   I got it at Micro Center on 11/20/2007, and paid $10.99 for it. 

 

Both printers are still installed on an old desktop running on XP.  I don't know if any of this helps you. 

 

Good luck!I
