Alternate HP print driver with 'Print Preview' for Photosmart 7520

Q: Alternate HP print driver with 'Print Preview' for Photosmart 7520

Help getting & installing a compatable driver for new Photosmart 7520.

Need to have 'Print Preview' in Printer Preferences. Newer Photosmart Printers have very few options under Preferences.

Have tried drivers for Office Jet 6100 & Deskjet 69800 as suggested in HP forums. Neither has 'Print Preview' in Printing Preferences.

My previous Photosmart C310 died, bought the 7520 as a replacement. If I remember correctly, when I upgraded to Windows 7 with the older Photosmart C310 I had to download an alternate driver. That printer worked fine for over 2 years with all the preferences. I failed to note the driver that worked with the C310.

Hope someone can help, or I'll return this one to Costco along with the $130.00 worth of ink.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

After a week of frustration, I was able to locate an HP Forum with the information that works.
I used the alternate driver that was from my previous Photosmare C310.
Here is the link. Hope this is helpful for someone in the future.

I research genealogy and do a lot of text printing from my own compter files. The 'Print Preview' feature is crucial to how I print. It is next to impossible to find out if a new printer has this feature before buying. Sales people & manufacturer's website are next to usless.

Hello to all!

It has been a while since this problem first occurred. Now it has become unbearable. When I try to print, use print preview or enter page setup, Microsoft Word 2003 freezes. The same thing also happens with other Office 2003 programs like Microsoft Excel 2003.

I am not sure if there is a problem with my printer driver (the printer is an HP L2600n by the way) as I have reinstalled it many times AND I have no problem using it as a network printer and can print the same word documents FINE from laptops or other desktop computers in the house. Thus I know that the documents aren't corrupted. I can also print .pdf documents fine from this computer. I think this problem started when my laser printer driver 'disappeared' and when I tried to reinstall it I got a spool-related error. I reinstalled the spool driver and then when I tried to print a .doc file I was unable to do so. The problem may most likely be linked to Office 2003 itself but I have tried options like deleting the data key and renaming the normal.dot template, all which have failed to alleviate the problem.

I think that is all the information I can offer to assist anyone trying to help me with this matter, and I hope that the problem can be fixed without me having to reformat or something like that.

Thank you in advance.

P.S Not sure if this will also come in handy but my OS is Windows XP Professional SP2.

OK, this one is a twist on a very often reported problem on these forums:

Internet Explorer 11 will not print and just shows an empty print preview page. (Edge works/prints fine).

However in this case I know what caused the issue but not how to resolve it. This issue CANNOT be repaired by the commonly offered 3 or 4 step Microsoft tips that are all over this site and elsewhere (disable protected mode, Low folder permissions, etc, etc,)

Here is the complete story: New laptop HP Z Book 17 with factory installed Windows 10 Pro. All worked great when first run. No issues. I installed Office 2010, Quicken, AutoCAD, Chrome ........ etc. All worked fine.
Then I installed a specialist program, 'Helvar Workshop' - which is a lighting control application that I need for my work and originally written for XP.
After installing the Workshop program it worked fine but I was no longer able to print or preview in IE11. This is not a new issue to me as it also broke the same functions with IE10 and 11 running on Windows 7. I only ever 'resolved the problem then by doing a system restore in Windows 7 and ultimately installing an XP VM to run 'Workshop'. In that configuration it did NOT break the print functions in XP's IE 6 or 7.

Having experienced the problem again on the new Z Book I went to System Restore and discovered that HP had supplied the machine without activating System Restore! Yes, I should have verified it was active before installing any apps ........ but seri... Read more

I've seen that on other brands of computers, both Desktops and Notebooks, so I think it's more a Win10 thing. Saw it on my own Custom Win10 Upgraded from Win7 so I made the change.

Friends, I have a report with eight subs. I was trying not to show empty sub, and in subreport also part white.

Resolved, but to place it can shrink and can expand,
for all sections of all subreports also placed time zero for all subreports.
In the event when loading the subreport I repeat this code for each sub:
if Me.Filho0.Report.HasData Then
Me.Filho0.Visible = True
Me.Filho0.Visible = False
end If
In the event if you are not given for each sub I put:
cancel = True
As I open the report it is all empty, but when I print, it prints perfectly, if the sub is no data, shows
and also the sub fully expand.
Only when I open'm not seeing anything.
Thank you.

I have created a document in Excel 2016 with 5 work sheets.
Each worksheet comprises 2 pages.
I want the document to be able to print out as 5 x 2-sided sheets.
The Print Preview appears fine, with 10 pages, and all in the correct sequence.
After completing the document at home, I printed it on a Canon printer and all was fine.
However, at work, using an HP printer, the Print Preview still appears fine, but pages print in wrong sequence; with some printing 2-sided and others single-sided, although the content for each page appears correctly on the printed sheet.
If I save the file as a PDF, the pages are correctly ordered, and print out as 5 x 2-sided sheets as intended.
(OS is Windows 10)
I've created as 5 worksheets to allow flexibility of use with the document... Worksheet 1, for example will only ever need to be saved as a 2-page PDF; sometimes only 2 or 3 of the worksheets need to be printed, and other times all sheets need to be printed.

Is the Excel file somehow retaining some of the printer profile from when it was originally created which is conflicting with a different printer profile? or is there a simpler explanation.

Any help gratefully accepted... I've spent hours trying to solve the problem and wasted hundreds of sheets of paper!

Using Windows XP and MSWord 2003 at work. Clipart from MS Clipart website and Wordart disappears in print preview and will not print.

In IE7 my default print size always starts at "shrink to fit" - I have to change to 100% - when I "X" out and come in again it is again "shrint to fit"

Can anyone tell me how to change the default to be "100%" every time I enter print preview?


A:IE7 Print Preview - change print size

I think this is controlled by your printer. From the IE7 FAQ page:
" Why do I have to reset the print options every time I open Internet Explorer?
Printing changes made within Internet Explorer are always temporary. To make changes permanently, you need to change them in Windows. For information about changing Windows print options, see Choosing print options."

I didn't see anything in that link particularly useful though ... and when I tried to simply force my printer to print at 100% through the print driver settings, it would always reset itself to Actual Size. Worth a shot for you perhaps, via Properties > Advanced > Printing Defaults > Effects (but that's when using my HP LaserJet 2420 ... will be different depending on make and model of printer, and some printers may not even support this option)

You may need to contact your printer manufacturer if it's bugging you that much, see whether your printer can handle it

Hello. I am a first timer so please bear with me. My daughter bought a Toshiba laptop and when we installed the photosmart 1000 printer it printed a test page but nothing else will print. After much calling and installing updated driver everything seems to be working properly but now the page that comes out is totally blank. Sorry, don't have exact message but mentioned something about a driver so that is why I went to HP and downloaded driver but still does not work. Would really appreciate help. Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi all,

Need your guidance and expertise please.

We just purchased an HP Pavilion P7-1254 PC 64-bit with Windows 7 Home Premium. The existing printer is an HP Photosmart 7760 which was connected to our old computer which ran XP via the LPT1 port.

I'm feel extremely computer illiterate at the moment, so please give me "dummy proof" instruction

Here's what I've done so far . . . went to Add Printer. Driver didn't come up so I selected "have disk". Said everything installed fine, but still no printer.

Then read a thread stating we should perform Windows Update so all updated drivers are downloaded. Did that. No success.

Then I further read that HP doesn't offer a driver for 64-bit, but could use either Vista drivers or a patch or even Deskjet 5400? (I went through this for my Vista machine a few years ago and it was successful)

Still . . . wanted to check with you guys first before doing this because that thread said it was for upgrading Vista to Windows 7. I'm not doing that.

Sooo, two questions please:

1. What port am I supposed to be using? The Add Printer selected LPT1 (which was the port used on our old XP machine) and I'm not sure that's correct for this new one. I think I have to use a USB port here? If this is the case, do I simply need to get a converter for my printer so I can use the USB? Please confirm.

Okay, lets see, about two weeks ago....we had one generic (black) ink in our printer plus our rather HP inks.

It said "INK FAILURE" (about black I think) so I took that cartridge out and put a new HP one in.

I thought that would solve the problem. WRONG!

It proceeded to still give a "INK FAILURE" message and would not print.

CURRENTLY, it will fax things (??!!) but will not print.

My husband reset it from scratch. Still will NOT work.

Any clue why? Any idea how to fix it?

All right--we need a high techie. If you have any ideas, would love to hear!

Printer was unused for 9 months, as it is every year, but worked perfectly before that. Since last year I have used aftermarket ink but not refills.
What Iíve tried so far.
Although printer shows all cartridges had ink Replaced black (twice) & all color
Cleaned printhead
Reset printer using *,# 123 etc
Unplugged, waited 1 minute and re-plugged printer.
Used paperclip to clean out feeder tubes.
Soaked black cartridge in hot water/alcohol mix -dried and reinserted.
Aligned printer.
Any solutions we have not tried?

A:HP Photosmart C7280 won't print black

Inkjets shouldn't be left unused for long periods, the print head is likely clogged with dried ink and probably not recoverable. Using aftermarket ink probably hasn't helped either. You can order a new print head if available from HP or a third party parts site or replace the printer.

Hi Gang,

The below image should give you an idea of my a.) dilemma and b.) frustration (note name of default printer).
This is a Home Network printer. Windows 7 in this instance is running wireless on my Dell D-620. It did not like the installation disk for the HP printer, but was able to locate internal drivers for it. It's set up using the IP addy. Sadly, it doesn't like to hold the printer mapping over time, and frequently drops it. I've tried a few things, but only removing/reinstalling the driver seems to solve it, and even then only temporarily. Problem is, the ghosts that you see in the pic. I remove them using "remove device" but they only reappear on refresh, or restarting of the "Devices and Printers" window.

HELP suggested removing in Device Manager, but there is nothing there to remove. I'm sure I am not seeing the clear answer here. Can anyone offer a suggestion? I just want those ghosts out of there and my life back. ~~ ~~

Did you install the full software package? Many, if not most, all-in-one devices can use the Windows built-in printer driver but require the manufacturer's driver be installed to access other functions. Also check your documentation if you're trying to scan over the network-I have a couple of all-in-one devices that support network printing but will only scan via a directly connected PC. (Note that the directly connected PC is networked so I can scan, from it, to any network drive. I've never seen that as an issue since you need to be at the 'printer' anyway to put the document to be scanned into it. I just go ahead & scan it while I'm standing there anyway.)

I have a HP PhotoSmart 1000 printer which has been essentially trouble-free until now. The problem now is that whenever the printing process is underway I immediately hear a loud noise coming from my printer. It gets progressively worse and sounds as though something is tearing up. Then the printer will stop abruptly and I receive the following message: PRINT CARTRIDGE HOLDER IS STUCK.

I then lift the lid and notice that there's a problem with the horizontal white ribbon which runs behind the print cartridge holder. Somehow it has become bunched up and wrinkled, apparently from having gotten in the way of the print cartridges as they move from right to left.

Does anyone know if there is an easy solution to this problem? Is it possible to reposition the white ribbon so that the printing process will run smoothly and noise-free? Or could it be that I will have to replace the ribbon? I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who may be able to help me. (The Troubleshooting section of the user's manual is of no help in this case.)

Thank you,


has the cable got permanent creases in it? If it does and im guessing so, it wont flex properly when the cartridge moves. If its creased Id say cut your losses and go get a new cable if possible.

Whenever I print to the shared printer on my Windows 7 desktop, the print job will just sit in the print queue. If I stop and then start the print spooler, the job will print. It happens from an XP laptop. Print jobs sent from the local Windows 7 computer print just fine.
How can i solve this one ? :(

This issue with some particular laptop running windows Xp and windows 7 Home

A:Whenever I print to the shared printer he print job will just sit in the print queue

So, the Windows 7 Desktop has the printer physically attached to it and it's shared?
And the XP laptop is sharing the printer through the network? If I understand you correctly?
If so, on the XP Laptop, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. Are there any devices with yellow flags? Or Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is there an Unknown Device? Or any listings for the printer? If so, right click it and Uninstall it. Now go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Add Remove Programs uninstall any drivers or software for the printer. Now,go to Printers and Faxes, and if the printer icons is there, Right click the shared printer icon and Delete it. And Restart the computer. Now when the computer comes back up, go to the printer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in the model# for the printer and download the driver for the printer for XP and install it. Now, go to Start/Run and type the computer name of the Windows 7 machine (ex) \\ComputerName and press enter. A window should open up with the shared drives on the 7 computer, with the shared printer. Right click the shared printer and choose Connect. This will add the printer to Printers and Faxes again. Right click this printer/Properties and print a Test Page.

Hold down the shift key when you start the program. That will reset the defaults – at least on some versions.

When I preview an OE e-mail attachment (e.g. a document) by simply clicking on the attachment, then click on the printer icon to print it, it appears with several other pictures (.jpg's). I'm not sure where they're coming from. I've tried searching for those file names on the C: drive, but XP tells me it can't find any such files. The only time I see these pictures is when I try to print directly from the preview screen (the print wizard). I guess I wouldn't care, except that some of them appear to be banners from porn sites. At first, I thought they were coming in with the document I was trying to print. Then, I sent myself an e-mail with a picture attached. When I previewed that picture and tried to print it, the same bogus pictures appeared. They could be hung up from a prior virus problem. How do I get rid of them?

Additionally, in Chrome I will get a preview window but there is no connection to my printer.

Dell inspiron 531sHP 6310 Officejet 6310 All-in-OneXP SP 3Firefox 3.6.xIE8I don't know if this is a Windows, browser, or printer related problem. Visiting Google, the HP web site (including their forum, help, and troubleshooting feature), and Microsoft help has provided me with no insight. The Microsoft site seems to be devoted to Office Word options, but does not address the details which follow.Using File>Print to initiate a print job (in both FF and IE) no longer offers the print preview option in the first window or anywhere else I can find. Questioning other users of this machine about any changes they have performed has been useless to determine whether or not they changed settings. I have not found any settings which I can change to retrieve this option.Recent events which I know of since my last use of print preview are:Windows automatic updatesinstalling Google Chromeadding Google DocsI do not know if any of these may have caused me to loose the print preview feature. I have removed both Google Chrome and Google Docs to see if that would restore the print preview option. --- no such luck!What next?Thanks for any insight you can provide.regards,wkid

In Quattro Pro X6 (on Windows 7), when I go to print preview, the spreadsheet is shown miniaturized in the preview even though in page setup, it's set to fit one page. To see a "true" preview, I have to go into page setup again in the print preview screen and press "ok" just to get it to show correctly. Is there a way to avoid this minimizing and just skip to how it'll look by the page setup conditions already set? When I'm working and printing multiple spreadsheets, it can get time consuming messing with page setup multiple times.

It looks like this only happens when printing a selection. It doesn't happen when printing a whole sheet.

I've a Styluscolor880. In XP I can flag (in box Properties) "Print Preview" so whenever I launch a print I see a window of preview and then I can decide if print or not.
Now I've installed win7 32-bit. I've correctly installed the printer either USB either in network, but in the "properties" there isn't flag "print preview". Anyone can help me? thanks

A:epson print preview

I would assume that has to do with the printer driver. The XP driver has that capability, but Epson left it out of their W7 driver.

What was the page programmed at, 1024x768 or larger? Is the page using tables? When viewing the page in your browser does it run off the page to the right?
