Tried to find an older version for the F4180 i own but it seems to be vanished!
Is there going to be an update or a new driver for it cause i can't afford buying a new printer right now and apple doesn't have support for it.
Thank you for your time.

I would like to help. Although you may not find a driver from the HP website that is compatible with the OS X Mavericks, you should still be able to print. Try resetting the printing system and adding the printer back again. Follow the steps below.
Click the Apple icon ( ), and then click System Preferences .
In the Hardware section, click Print & Fax . The Print & Fax dialog box opens.
Right-click (or Ctrl +click) in the left panel, and then click Reset printing system…
Click OK to confirm the reset.
Type the correct Name and Password .
Click OK to reset the printing system. The Print & Fax dialog box shows no printer selected.
Click the Apple icon ( ), and then click Software Update . The system checks for software updates.
Click Install , and then follow the onscreen instructions to download and install any software updates.
- Click the Apple icon ( ), and then click System Preferences .
- In the Hardware section, click Print & Fax . The Print & Fax dialog box opens.
- Click the Plus Symbol (+)
- Select Add other printer or scanner.
- Choose your printer.
Hope this helps

I have found that mine stopped working as a networked printer so shifted it to be directly plugged in via USB and when OSX searched for a driver for it no joy. However, I have just downloaded this --->
and now it is working via USB, haven't had a chance to network it again so can't comment on that but will look into it.

Unfortunately nothing works. Tried what you said, reseted and readded but when i tried to print a text my printer crashed. all its buttons started flashing and it didn't stop unless i turned it off. Tried it a couple of times. Such a shame such a big company not to give a crap about it. Thanks for your time guys though

I am sorry this has been such a challenge. What I can suggest at this point is maybe upgrading to a newer printer model. I understated from your first post that you are not in a position to buy a new printer but I would like you to know that you may be able to get a discount from HP.
Best of luck.
