Re: can't install HP deskjet F4580 on windows 7

The k550 is not the problem. As I first mention my problem is with the f4580 not installing. The CD is for the f4580 and only mentioned as a side note. So if you have solutions to my original problem I would appreciate that. Thank you.

Hello jja027

 

Are you using Windows 7 as well? How is the printer connected and are you trying to install the printer from the CD or did you download the Full Feature Software? Could you add a screenshot of the error/message you are receiving?

Hi rasclart,

What printer do you have?

What is the operating system on your computer?

How do you have the printer connected to the computer?

 

HP designed a quick and easy tool that diagnoses and resolves many printing, scanning, and connectivity problems: The HP Print and Scan Doctor. HP recommends that you download and install the Print and Scan Doctor any time you need to troubleshoot a problem with your HP printer from the link below.

Let me know what errors you receive?

Re: can't install HP deskjet F4580 on windows 7

I'm having the same problem

When i get to the page where it does the system check, it says checking system, looking for updates, applying updates and then the installation screen just goes away. No error notifications

I've tried everything (new drivers, HP assistance, Safe Mode,...) but can't seem to get it to work

@k94, : how did you manage to get this printer installed?

Can someone help me?

 

Seems that its only in windows 7 that I have this problem (tried it on 2 PC's)

When I install the printer on Windows XP it works just fine

Hi Everyone,

Follow the steps below, and let me know what happens?

 

Step one: Clear temp directory

  1. Type %temp% in the run or search for programs and files field
  2. Highlight all the files in this folder, and then press the delete key to delete. If you get a message that the file is in use you will need to skip this file(s).
  3. Continue with Step 2 below

Step two: Downloaded and extracted to your system:

 

1. Download the full feature software and drivers

 

Note: Go to HP Customer Care, and then enter your printer model. Download the full feature software and driver, and then follow the remaining steps below. If your product doesn’t have the uninstall_l4 then please let me know what printer you have and the operating system you are running.

 

2. Once the download is finished double click on the file to extract the software.

3. When the installation window opens press the cancel button to stop the installation

4. Type %temp% in the run or search for programs and files field

5. Look for, and open the folder starting with 7z (Example: 7zS2356)

6. Right click on the folder, and select Copy

7. Close that window, and all your open windows, and then in the middle of the desktop right click your mouse, and select Paste. This will move the 7z folder to your desktop.

8. Open the 7z folder you just copied to your desktop

9. Open folder Util

10. Open folder CCC

11. Run the uninstall_L4 (.bat or .exe)

12. When the uninstall has completed restart the computer

13. Run Disk cleanup from Accessories\ System Tools folder under all programs

14. Download and install the latest version of Adobe flash player

http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

 15. Open the 7z folder, and then double click on the Setup.exe file which will be toward the bottom of the open window. Follow the on screen instructions to reinstall your printer.

Let me know if you are able to successfully install the software and driver, and are able to print & scan?
