Cannot make HP Photosmart 4580 printing in Windows 7

HP Recommended

Hi, 

 

I'm desparate to make my HP Photosmart 4580 printing in Windows 7 neither in USB mode nor in Wireless mode, even though it told me that all the drivers have been successfully installed.

Wiindows thinks that all printing tasks including test page printing are successful.

 

I have network-configured  the printer under Windows Vista, and when I migrated to 7  I got this problem. 

 

Printer has static IP (that's because it was easiest way not to have problems in Ubuntu).

 

I have HP Pavilion dv9000.

 

Please help to get it working.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Mira

Can you communicate with the printer from your Win-7 machine?  Test this by trying to open by printer's internal web page by browsing to its IP address.

 

If you can access the printer, then you can manually install the printer using the "Add a device" wizard in the Win-7  "Devices and Printers" folder (interestingly, I can't get the "Add a printer" wizard to work).

HI, 

 

I have added the printer and it's been installed. Also, I can access the printer page in the browser, and windows even sends tasks to printing, but Printer ignores them.

 

I tried both USB and Wireless install. same result

I have successfully installed the hp photosmart 4580 on windows 7. The method I used is this. I changed the router ip to 192.168.0.1 then installed printer on a windows vista machine as disk has no support for windows 7 I guess you could use XP to do this. Then I ran the network configuration utility and all is working fine prints on wifi too
