I am having huge issues with my HP Photosmart Premium C309g-m. I have had it for just over a year, and have NEVER had any problems with it.
I am going to give as much information as I can.
HP Photosmart Premium C309g-m printer
Samsung ML-2010 Series (Working wirelessly)
Gateway (Acer) NV5915h laptop
Windows 7 Home Premium
64-bit Operating System
Intel(R) Pentium (R)CPU P6200 2.13GHz
Norton 360 Premier Edition
Wireless Logitech Mouse
Wireless Microsoft keyboard
It started about 2 weeks ago
At first it would lose connection, and then I would have to reboot my laptop and the printer, and it would come back. Then I had to start removing the printer and then re-installing it. It worked for a bit, but now I am not sure what I am doing wrong.
I disabled my Norton while I did everything.
I tried adding the Photosmart through the install CD, Manually adding it, disabling the HP services, and I downloaded the setup from HP, in case there was something wrong with my CD. I have gone through the entire trouble-shooter.
I have run through the install CD over a dozen times, it finds the printer and goes all the way to the end, and it says “printer setup has failed to complete. Click retry to try installing again or click next to continue without connecting to the printer now, I will connect later."
I also went to
Start typed in cmd Services.msc located the HP Network Devices Support right click Properties changed start up type to Disabled. Then re-installed the printer. It didn’t work!
I uninstalled all the HP software, and then installed it again.
I even tried typing the IP address in.
If I open a webpage and type in the IP, it brings up my printer; it shows everything with no problems.
When I added it manually I tried to set it as my default printer and I get error0X00000709. It won’t let me set it as the default, so I tried leaving my other one as the default, and then selecting the HP Photosmart from the dropdown list, then print. Same thing happens I get the error.
I also installed through a wired (USB) connection, so that I could get all the driver updates. It updated everything, and I was able to print to it, but then when I went to switch to wireless, it errors.
I also installed it by:
Start Devices and printer add printer add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer.
It searches for my printer, it finds it. The problem is it finds 3 of the HP Photosmart!!
It shows them as follows:
HP0AB1A0 (HP Photosmart premium c309g-m) IP http:\\192.168.1.70:3910
HP Photosmart on OWNER-PC IP: \\OWNER-PC\ HP Photosmart
Samsung on OWNER-PC
Photosmart Premium C309g-m (HP) IP 192.168.1.70.
I have gone through and installed them one by one, and deleting it when it didn’t work.
I have gone through the entire fix it problems on the HP website.
I can print to both of my printers through our desktop computer. I can print to my Samsung wirelessly from my Laptop; it’s just the HP that won’t print.
This is so frustrating! I used to work for HP, so I have gone through all the tricks I know.
Please help I really need to get this working. My email is email@example.com, if you want to contact me directly. I might forget to come and check this.
Thank you in advance to anyone who has any ideas!
