Communication problems with HP printer 3330mfc
Posted on 2006-04-18
Hi there, I wonderif anyone could guide towards the source of my problem:
I have a P4 computer with asus mobo XP home SP2 (brief description) and installed through paralel (somehow) a HP 3330mfc printer.
Well, out of the blue, one day the "HP Director" started coming up with a message when entering windows saying that it couldn't communicate with the device. Sometimes, after clicking once on the retry button solved the problem, most of times, it wouldn't do anything and kept on coming up until cancel was pressed. In that case, it obviously didn't appear as connected, but I could print from command prompt.
Numerous things have been tried, reinstalling, un-installing and installing from scratch, updating, downdating, cursing... nothing works. However some days it works just fine. For 5 minutes. When not needed. Frustrating.
Any ideas at all?
Thanks in advance.
