I know this has probably a really simple solution because I have run across it before.
I've got an HP AIO 3180 printer that use to print great. I've only had it for about a month. In the past couple of days it only prints 2 lines of trash (symbols, lines, & such) & then spits the page out. I have uninstalled & reinstall it a couple of times without joy. I've checked the ports, cables, etc. & everything appears fine. I'm using Windows XP. I have downloaded the driver only & will try uninstalling all of the software & installing only the driver to see if that helps.
Is this mainly a driver issue? Or could it be something has gotten screwed up with Windows & the USB ports?
