HP Deskjet 1510

HP Recommended
hp deskjet 1510
Microsoft Windows XP

My brother has an old PC (XP from 2003), he doesn't need anything faster or newer as he does very little with it.  He is also not connected to the internet, (never has been and unlikely that he ever will be); therefore if anyone can help with my query, please take this into consideration, and no, i can't take the computer home with me as he lives some distance away.

 

Basically he bought a hpdeskjet 1510, and he's followed the instructions on the disk to load it on to his computer but it hasn't worked.  He's followed the steps of the printer wizzard too, and that hasn't worked either.  Whatever he's tried hasn't worked and he tends to get error messages of some description, (sorry can't be anymore exact than that at this time.

 

The printer only came with a power cable too, when i asked what cable he has to link the printer to the pc he said he had nothing and he text me pictures of the cable option for the back of the computer, I've since bought some cables online and they fit in the relevant holes (using USB cable) and again he's followed the instruction but has had  no luck in getting the printer to work.

 

Is there a way to manually link the pc and printer???

Hi,

 

According to the printer specs here, the printer has no wireless capability so the only way to connect it is via USB cable connection.

 

Page 46-47 below give some instructions on how to connect the printer.
