Can't Get HP Photosmart 7350 Printer to Work on MacBook

Last Modified: 2013-12-15
I have an HP Photosmart 7350 Printer that works fine w/ my Windows XP laptop. I also need it to work w/ my MacBook running Snow Leopard.

Downloaded HP Photosmart Installer (version 8.3) from the HP website and installed it. But when I try to print, nothing happens on the printer side. The print job goes into the queue but then just sits there.

If I go into System Preferences, the printer is listed there. Next to the "Kind:" field it says "HP Photosmart 7350 - Gutenprint v5.2.3"

If I click on the printer queue icon on the Dock, it brings up the queue and lists the document being printed. It says "Waiting for printer to become available."
