Hi,

I hope someone can help, I have just bought & installed a HP dekjet 2510 all in one printer, when I try to print any thing online, for instance paypal invoices, adress labels etc I get  a little box that says "An unknown error occurred while printing." it happens on everything online that I have tried, I dont have a problem printing anything else, & no problem found with the trouble shooter. any ideas? if it cant be solved its going back & I will go back to Epsom!!

many thanks to anyone that can solve this unwanted problem/glitch.

Hi,

 

From which browser are you trying to print? Try printing from other browsers like IE, Firefox or chrome.

Hi,

 

Try following steps to steps to reset firefox and then try printing.

 

  1. Type about:config in the Address Bar and press Enter. A list of preferences will appear.
  2. Find the preference print.print_printer (Note: this preference is missing in Firefox profiles where you've never used the printer.)
  3. Right-click (context-click) that preference and select Reset. (Some users may need to reset all the print.printer preferences for a particular printer, if resetting this one master preference doesn't solve the problem.)
  4. Restart Firefox and see if the problem is resolved.

I have an officejet 6500A plus and use Firefox exclusively and had the same problem as TokDoc for several weeks now.  The hp print & scan doctor never showed a problem with the printer so I finally went on the forum, followed DevRao's instructions and voila, it worked!

 

Thank you for the advice, I really appreciate that knowledgeable folks like DevRao take the time  solving puzzling problems that appear suddenly and cannot be resolved with the limited knowledge of an average user like myself.
