  7. HP 1215 and Vista

    AWWWWW MAN!!!!!!! Thanks Gatman for the awesome tip.....you not only saved me ehh bout 70 bucks (for a cheap printer to just be able to work with this OS) but also about an hours worth of work setting an older puter as a print server and joining to my network :) Anyway this fix with the 7200 driver worked for me. Now the wife is happy and as all od us married men know we can be spared for another day.

    Thanks again for sharing the info.

    Getting this Fix to Work for A Network Printer

    I was wondering how to get my Windows Vista computer to print off of the photosmart 1215 sucker from and XP client when I stumbled upon this thread from google.
    Here is how for those who are wondering:
    Go to
    Start>Control Panel
    Under the Hardware and Sound Tab Click printers
    Click "Add a Printer" from the "file bar"
    Click "Add a Network,Wireless or Bluetooth Printer"
    Locate your printer, follow the instructions and add it normally
    Click back to the "Printers" window
    Find the network printer you added
    Right click on it> Click properties
    Click "Advanced"
    Next to driver click "New Driver"
    Click next, wait until the list of possible printer drivers appear
    Go to HP on the right, click on "HP Photosmart 7200 Series" on the right
    Click next, click finish

    Delete the printer you just added from the network
    Add it again (it should now list as hp 7200 series on...)
    There you are.

    Worked on my 1218 too. Great, thanks :)
     
  11. Great Solution

    Thank you very much.

    I was extraordinarily annoyed that HP and MS were not going to offer drivers for the 1215 to operate on Vista. But there is always a way around their collective ignorance and mis-treatment of their customers. My 1215 works great with the 7200 drivers and I get to keep using a perfectly functioning printer.

    Stick it to the man!!!

    Thanks much!!

    What am I missing

    Thanks to the one that found the work around,
    But what am I missing?

    I have followed step by step. I have even turned of and back on.
    The good news is that at least there is a print in the que.
    The test page comes up as an error, but from word they just sit there.
    What else do I need to tickle?
    I have tried all printers ports, just for giggles.

    LMK,
    Thanks

    ANZPOWER722........What are you trying to say? I guess you don't like Vista
     
  19. oh ya

    If you go to the HP site you will get this useful information
    We are sorry to inform you that there will be no Windows Vista support available for your HP product. Therefore your product will not work with Windows Vista.
    The majority of HP products not supported in Windows Vista are beyond seven years old.
    If you are using the Windows Vista operating system on your computer, please consider upgrading to a newer HP product that is supported on Windows Vista. HP has numerous products on the market that support Windows Vista.
    As stated in other mails the 7200 driver works well but I don't seem to be able to print from the web--Driver problem or operating system???
