Question about HP DeskJet 5150 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Can't connect to remote Deskjet 5150

I am running windows 7 x64. We have a HP Deskjet 5150 attached to a Windows XP machine which is on our wireless network. When I try and connect to the printer, windows cannot find a driver but if I install the printer locally, Windows already has the driver. How can I get windows to use this driver for the remote printer?

Please, how does your Win 7 x64 machine compare to anything else on your network?

Can any other computer see that printer at all?

When you install the printer locally does that mean by USB, or what please?

When you installed Win7, did you upgrade or did you do a Clean install? If you performed an upgrade, you may have the problem with older conflicting drivers and services. Read this to see what I mean. http://members.shaw.ca/bsanders/CleanPrinterDrivers.htm

My windows 7 laptop shows my hp 5150 deskjet printer and the printer gets to the standby mode but not prints


HP Deskjet 5150 is highly compatible with windows 7, so no issue for the operating system. Now we check the driver for your printer if it has the latest updated software if it does then there is no issue.

I want to share an HP 7760 on an XP with Win 7


To get ahead of myself and answer your question first, your Win 7 machine may automatically load a driver for your shared printer.

Please have a look at the procedure below: (these instructions assume that your XP machine is sharing the HP printer and that your Win 7 laptop can "see" your network and the shared printer connected to your XP desktop computer)

On the Win7 machine, follow these steps:

1) In "Control Panel" click "Add local printer"
2) Create New Port > Local port
3) Port Name is "\\xpcomputername\printername" - without the quotes

(insert the XP's real network name and your printer's real name in the above location)

4) Click <OK>

5) Windows 7 should automatically load a driver allowing you to print on the HP connected to the XP from the Win7 laptop.

I hope this helps!

Vista cannot connect to xp printer


It sounds like your are using your Windows XP computer as the print server, and you are trying to connect your Windows Vista machine to the Windows XP print server. Your Vista machine is trying to download the XP drivers from the Windows XP computer to your Vista machine. This won't work. Windows XP and Vista print drivers are not compatible.

If the printer is truely networked (it has it's own IP address on the network, it has its own ethernet connection). Then instead of trying to map out to this shared printer, add new printer to the Vista machine using Vista drivers for the HP Deskjet 3940. The type of port you would need is a standard TCP/IP port. To get this address, print a settings page from the printer. Look for either a TCP/IP address or IP address on this print out. This is the port address you want to create and then connect to.

Wireless Dell laptop can't 'find' HPDeskjet 5150 Printer


this printer is (as per HP specs) only connected via USB or Wlan Print server.
Check connection using USB cable and be sure Printer driver are correctly working.
Check on Router your Print server IP address (Lock it out of DHCP)
Put both PRT and PC on same home network (normally HOME or MSWORK)
Put Printer server IP address into your printer properties/port tab/ IP.
OR check if you see your printer server in your Windows network/home network
