Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have Windows Vista. Doing ''Add Printer''. The new printer added ''successfully'', but hovering over printer, shows ''error'', and wont print.
Printer is HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-one.
Intended this copy of my C7280 to be set with greyscale property, but cant get a working 2nd printer.
Had no difficulty adding a greyscale printer in XP.
Clicked on Start/Control Panel/PrinterI. Clicked Add a printer. Obtained (Copy 1) of my HP Photosmart C7280 all-in-one printer. Right clicked on (Copy 1)/properties. Opened Ports tab. Saw comment "Print to the following Ports. Documents will print to the first free checked port." A listed USB Virtual printer port, showed three printers -- my first printer, my copy 1 (& my fax printer) -- was unchecked. I placed a checkmark in this Port box. Both the original printer, and my copy 1 printer are printing just fine. *I have not checked to verify that my fax is functional.
I did rename the original "color". I renamed Copy 1 as "grayscale", and --under printer preferences, checked, under "color options", to print in greyscale.
