Have you tried deleting the shared printer & then re-adding it?  It could be that the printer registry key has an issue.

I have seen problems connecting to shared printers on a windows 2003 print server over the network from Windows 2008 R2 server.  I never could figure it out (updating the driver didn't resolve it).  It happened 3 or 4 times.  When that happened, the only solution we found was to completely remove the printer.  I always double checked in the registry to be sure it was completely gone (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers), then I re-added it using the latest driver.

After that, we could connect to the printer from the Server 2008 machine without any error.

No, I understand which OSs are involved.  On a server scale, Windows 2003 and Windows 2008 are comparable to Windows XP and Windows 7, respectively.

So, my question is:  have you tried removing the printer from the WinXP system & re-creating it from scratch? That helped us a few times and I think it's worth a shot.

I hope you have the resources to create a printer server, (wether windows or HP).
Its my suggestion towards better printer management and sharing.

Is the Windows 7 system 64 bit?  If it is, you may just need to need the 64 bit drivers for that printer.  

First, I would search online to see if Windows XP 64 bit drivers exist for the printer.  Download the driver. Then, on the SHARING tab of the printer on the XP system, click on the ADDITIONAL DRIVERS button to add the 64 bit driver to the XP system.
