Deskjet 1280 drivers for Windows 10 x64

HP Recommended
Deskjet 1280
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

I have an HP Deskjet 1280 printer and recently updated my operating system from Windows 7 to Windows 10 x64. The OS cannot find some compatible driver for the printer and my attempts to find someone online were unsuccesful. 

 

Could you please help me and advice if and where I could find the driver that I am looking for? 

 

Thank you in advance!

The Deskjet 1220c driver available through Windows Update is a good match for the Deskjet 1280 in Windows 10.

See my post above, the Deskjet 1220c is a good match for the Deskjet 1280 hardware.

I have tried the solution you offered and I still cannot print on my Deskjet 1280.

I had this problem the last Laptop I bought and had to pay the supplier to install a Driver.

 

I still have that PC but cannot find the Driver.

 

Does anyone know what the Driver is actually called or of any other reason why the printer will not print.

 

Any help appreciated

How is the printer connected - USB or parallel port?  Have you gone to the Devices and Printers folder, Add a Printer, The printer I want is not listed, Add a local printer or network printer with manual settings, Next, Use an existing port: [choose the appropriate LPTn: or USB00n: port], Next, Windows Update [wait perhaps five minutes for the list to repopulate], select HP as the manufacturer (not Hewlett Packard or Hewlett-Packard), selectt HP Deskjet 1220C, Next, Next, Yes, Next, Finish?  If you have an issue at some point please indicate which step has a problem.

There is no 1220c option on the list on the right. I did it in my desktop and it worked as you say, but now in my laptop there is not that option, it's missing from the list...

Did you click on the "Windows Update" box in the lower right of the add printer dialog?

you are right, at first I was clicking it but nothing was happening, it was stuck. After several restarts it worked and I found the option I wanted! Thank you very much!
