Re: C3180

Mine prints 4x6 photo fine, PC not vista 64 though. Did you choose the right paper size from the print dialog?

Re: C3180

I think the problem occured when I installed my printer to the vista.  I downloaded new drivers, so now it does print, but without any of the previous functionality.  I don't know what to do to fix it other than get a new printer.  Please help:

Re: C3180

Which driver did you install?  You should download a driver from HP here.  There is also an uninstaller if you had previously installed the XP driver.

Re: C3180

Thanks for the information.  I deleted the old drivers and installed the new ones.  It still won't print pictures and the font is still very tiny.

Re: C3180

What application are you printing from? Have you tried printing from other applications? Try opening Notepad and type a few lines, then print.  Does this work?

Re: C3180

I deleted the drivers and reinstalled them.  The printed now prints from all applications, but does not allow me to change the print size.  What ever size picture I try to print, it is alway an 8x10.  Any suggestions?  Thank you
