Windows 10 drivers for photosmart 7550

When I downloaded Windows 10,  my Printer drivers for photosmart 7550 did not merge from Windows 8.1.

Windows 10 does not recognize photosmart 7550 printer.

Windows 10 drivers for photosmart 7550

The HP Photosmart 7550 can indeed be used with Windows 10 and with Windows 8.1 for that matter. You just have to manually install the printer and use the compatible driver that is built into Windows.

 

Here's how. Just follow this simple step by step procedure and your printer will be up and running very quickly.

 

  1. Plug in the printer and connect it to your computer
  2. Turn it on
  3. Right click the start button and click the following:
  4. Control Panel
  5. Devices and Printers
  6. Add a printer
  7. Click The printer that I want isn’t listed
  8. Add a local printer with Manual Settings
  9. Next
  10. Use an existing port
  11. DOT4_001 (HP Print Device)
  12. Next
  13. Under Manufacturer Select HP
  14. Under Printers Choose HP Photosmart 7520 series Class Driver
  15. Next
  16. Select Use the Driver that is currently installed or replace current driver (it doesn’t matter which)
  17. Next
  18. Printer Name appears click next
  19. Do not share this printer
  20. Next
  21. Print a test page
  22. Close
  23. Finish

See you don't need to throw away your expensive high quality printer. You just have to know how to set it up with the new OS.

 

Let me know if this helps you!

Windows 10 drivers for photosmart 7550

Thank you, Tom.  I was afraid I would have to toss an excellent printer -- one that, until I installed Windows 10 -- was working perfectly and totally suited my needs.  I also have a modest stock of ink cartridges that I would have to toss as well if there had been no way to resurrect my printer.

 

Just having come across your instructions, I haven't had a chance to apply them.  But I will later this evening - and I'll let you know how I come out.

 

Again, thanks for taking the time to develop the fix and posting that fix where those in need can find it.

Tom,

 

I installed the printer/driver per your instructions.  Installation was completely successful.  I now (again and finally) have a fully functional HP Photosmart 7550 working with Windows 10.  The entire process took less than five minutes following your instructions step by step by step….   Thanks for you post.  It saved me the cost of a new printer – a cost I would have had to pay had I needed to “junk” my current printer and buy a new replacement.
