printer will not print word documents or documents from internet however does a test print

HP Recommended

My printer will not print word documents or documents from the internet.  However it does complete a test print.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled printer.  I have disabled and enbled the firewall and have run the test doctor programme, which has been unable to identify any problems.  I have a HP deskjet 3050A all in one J611 series printer.

Sorry that you are having a problem with printing word documents and internet. 

 

Are you connected USB or wireless?

 

You can try to download an alternative driver and check to see if that works. (Shane_R) has a great post on how to do so. 

 

The deskjet 990c is usually the better one.

Hi! Try accessing it in "administrator" mode if you are using Windows 7. Had the same problem with a different printer, though. Worked for me.

 

Peace!

Hi,

 

I found the answer to this by trawling forever, IT IS A HP PROBLEM, ARE YOU LISTENING HP ?

 

the fact is, the printer driver will only allow a sysadmin to print from certain programs, Adobe,Office, Wordpad there are more, but if you apply this fix, they will print

 

go to COTROL PANEL > USER ACCOUNTS > CHANGE USER ACCOUNT SETTINGS.

 

Drag the slider down to never notify, then restart your computer.

 

works on windows 7

 

effectively, you elevate your account to a sys admin, but if HP got their act together, they would sort this issue out, as it is all over their forums.
