HP PSC 2355 all-in-one: HP PSC 2355 will not recognize Windows Vista Home Basic

I bought this product in 2005. I'm just out of the box yesterday. The printer works fine. The software CD was made before Windows Vista Home Basic Edition. He acknowledges only 98, Me, 2000 and XP. He calls a Unknown600 to Vista. Is there a driver or other update I can use? Thank you.

Hi @Mc_Cool,

Welcome to the HP Forums!

I noticed that you are looking for a basic Windows Vista Home Edition driver for your HP PSC 2355. I'm happy to help you!

You can download the driver directly using this link, HP full feature software and drivers.

Hope this is what you are looking for and have a great day!

    The printhead on the HP Photosmart 6520 is not designed to be removable by the user.  While you can find messages with information on the withdrawal of the printhead for soaking, it's really not recommended.  If you decide to do this don't forget to read the entire thread, these discussions often end with a printer damaged due to damage or damage to the encoder system, electrical connectors which can make the printer unusable.

    You may have already taken the steps of troubleshooting in the paper here, if not go through each of them in order.  Check the vents on the black print cartridge and that it sits correctly.

    If the above does not solve the problem you could try manually to clean the printhead, as described in the post here for a different but similar printer.

    Note that the printer uses a mixture of color and black inks to print a diagnostic page.  This is so that the information can be read even if black or one or more colors do not work.  Although it may seem from this page your black works that is unfortunately not.  You can simulate this by selecting "Photo paper", as the media type in the driver, it would force the printer to use the same color ink to print black text.

Any help would be great.


    Sorry, but the printer is not supported on Windows Vista 64-bit.

    64-bit support is only available in Windows 7 or later operating systems.

    You can find the printer specs below:

    Vista 64-bit is not supported.


    You must upgrade your operating system to a later version to use instead an OS 64 - bit, Windows Vista 32 - bit to insall or replace it with another printer, compatible with your operating system.

    Have some computers All - in - One HP 3420 I'm trying to upgrade the memory in.

    There is that memory, two locations so choose which slot for memory is a no-brainer.

    Has started with a 2 GB chip slot added another chip of 2GB to

    recognized only the slot a. 2 GB

    Has taken a 2 GB
    chip on a second HP 3420 & put it in the slot B
    the first computer (just in case I have used the bad memory).
    Still no joy.

    BIOS is only say 1 Channel memory & only
    Recognizing that only channel & 2GB memory
    Someone at - it a setting I can verify
    or jumpers on the leading edge that must be fixed in order to recognize the double
    Configuration of channels?

    I would be happy if I can still get the systΦme can recognize the
    4 GB, I have in it, either in single or double channel

    In case someone else has a similar problem:

  • HP Deskjet all-in-one: HP Deskjet 3520 will not print black, period

    OK, I've lost my WHOLE day, searched forums, has done what others have tried, poste posted HP Facebook, doing whatever is humanly possible to get my printer to print in black. I ran the clean printhead, black ink changed TWICE new cartridges, reloaded drivers, reset the default open to the top of the printer and tried to manually clean the head after only 4 hours to do everything I can possibly do to get this junk to print in black. The printer is only a year old and the cartridges are freshly bought from the store. So, tell me what am I missing or is the printer ready to be stoned?

    Hi @ChrisBird,

    Welcome to the HP Forums

    Looks like you've covered most of the steps, but I will propose always to have a look through this document printer prints blank Page or not printing black or color ink for HP Deskjet Ink Advantage and Deskjet 3520 e-all-in-one printer series to ensure that you have verified that the event on both cartridges.

    If this does not help still nothing and will not always be the black print, please call our technical support team and request a replacement printer. At THAT TIME, regardless of the warranty, they should be able to establish that the replacement for you. Otherwise, let me know and I'll do my best to help you with a resolution.

    The pleasure of you talk to soon!

  • Printer HP Deskjet 3070 all-in-One - the IP address will not save

    Hello Odbod22

    By turning the printer power switch will usually change the IP address, unless make you it static or unchangable. The reason for routers use a protocol called DHCP that tells it how to distribute IP addresses. So, it is not uncommon that address to change. To avoid this, you must assign a static IP address on the printer.

    To do so follow the link below and search for "Step 6" how to set a static IP address.

    Printer keeps no connection Wi - Fi


    My printer model:



    Printer goes into sleep mode. After 25-30 minutes breaks the connection between the PC and the printer wireless. Beacon wireless is the same fashionable "sleep" and I see that the printer is connected to my router and there is internet connection. HP Print and Scan doctor sees the printer, but I can't wake the printer unless I restart it.

    What I've tried so far:

    I tried all the solutions offered hp.com; Reinstall driver, updating the printer software, setting static IP on the printer, static DNS servers, using HP print and Scan doctor.

    I've seen people questioned on this issue before and there is no solution. I really need help from HP!

    After days of research, the problem was finally solved! I applied the following steps below. Some steps may be unnecessary, I didn't waste my time knowing who.

    1. find your PC's DNS servers by typing ipconfig/all in CMD.
    2. assign a static IP address outside your DHCP range. For my Linksys router him between to So I put my static IP address as

    To do this, click the button on your printer wireless. This will show the IP address of your printer. This type of your browser. Go/network/network address. Choose manual IP and write

    3 now come to section of the manual DNS server, and then type your DNS servers, you found before.

    4. open your HP printer program that must be installed with your driver. Utilities hit and update the IP address. Update your address with your static IP address.

    5. now go to your router settings. Find the wireless settings and change your not automatic standard 20 MHz radio band.

    6. change your standard channel to 6.

    7 find the wireless security and replace your WPA-personal security mode.

    8 disable UPnP

    9. This is the part of the KEY. Change the renewal of your key to 36000 seconds. (10 hours)

    10 go to the Windows Advanced Firewall. Enable all the disabled printer and share, entrants and outbond rules.
    I believe that the most important parts are affecting a static IP address outside your DHCP-range and change the key renewal time. I hope this works for you too

  • HP PSC 2355 all-in-one printer/Scanner/copier will not scan to PC

    Need help with this one, friends: our HP PSC 2355 refuses to scan our PC. When we press the scan button to start scanning, we receive the following message appears: "You must install or run HP software for this feature".

  • software and star driver hp psc 1315xi all-in-One extracts full but will not load on xp sp3

    Can not find a way to get this to install. After extracting I finally found it in running %Temp%. Searching through all files and folders, trying to find the exe file. to get it to autorun, but was unsuccessful. I tried to install this on 2 different PC with xp pro sp3 but no luck.

    The solution below is from michael323 here in the Forums of HP's Support.  Make sure that you send Bravo!

    I think I have solved this problem.

    I have a PC Windows XP Pro (SP3) who has been affected by this problem.

    Immediately after that the window of 'extraction' went to 100% and closed, nothing happened.  The windows install/never display software.

    Whenever I tried it creates a log file that started with this:

    "Parsed command line: «.\Setup.exe".

    Using datfile: C:\DOCUME~1\xxxxx\LOCALS~1\Temp\7zS1293\autorun.inf

    # GetValueByLang (f-> c_str(), _T (Version), _T (LanguagesInthisCD) failed "

    System LangID = 1033.  mapped to ENU

    # The system language is ENU, but is not on our CD!

    There was other error messages after that, but they all come from lines 3 and 5.

    Something she prevented the installation program to recognize the language ENU files ARE present in this download.

    Comparing two PCs, a problem, and one that works perfectly, I saw that one who was not was AutoRun disabled through a registry setting.  I temporarily deleted this registry on the PC that wasn't and Setup launched and ran like he was supposed to.  Here are the first of this log from the same PC, a few minutes later, where the only difference was that I had removed the registry setting criminalized:

    "Parsed command line: «.\Setup.exe".

    Using datfile: C:\DOCUME~1\xxxxx\LOCALS~1\Temp\7zS1293\autorun.inf

    System LangID = 1033.  mapped to ENU

    We use the system of language = FRA, which is located on our CD!

    As you can see, the message "(LanguagesInthisCD) failed" (line 3) disappeared, and the line 5 (now line 4) shows that it has to recognize that the language ENU installation files are present.

    So if you encounter this problem, and you are comfortable with the system registry, here is how I got it to work on my PC:

    Start regedit
    Navigate to the bottom of this tree
    -Windows NT
    Below, find out if there is a key named "Autorun.inf".
    On my PC (the one with this problem) the value of this key has been "@SYS: nexistepas".
    If your registry database also has this, it may be the cause of your problem.
    In the left pane of regedit, do a right click on Autorun.inf and select "Rename" from the context menu.
    Change the name to something like "Autorun.inf.hold".
    Close regedit
    At this point, I restarted my PC, but I don't know if it is really necessary.
    I ran the downloaded driver file.  It extracted, and the Installer started out as it was supposed to.

    When it was done, I returned in regedit and renamed "Autorun.inf.hold" to "Autorun.inf".

    It is extremely frustrating for me, and (if you need it), I hope that this solution works for you.

  • HP5740e all-in-one: Deputy HP5740e Print will not add wireless printer

    I recently had a problem where printing of pdf documents is out as unreadable solid ink lines. I have it narrowed down to only occurs with specific policies and only a reader of pdf special and only on my hp printer. I suspect that this was due to software updates, but I don't know if it's windows 10 updates or updates of adobe or some other updates. Now I just avoid using the fonts of the problem.

    In any case, an attempt to solve this problem, I decided to uninstall my 5740e hp software and reinstall the software in the hope of resolving the problem. Unfortunately, it has not fixed the issue but left us with a problem even more serious.

    Having resinstalled the software I couldn't add my printer as a printer wirelessly from the HP Print Wizard. He added fine as a usb printer and a web printer but not wireless.

    I added the printer wireless via the windows & Panel devices configuration printer OK. It prints wirelesslessly and via printing web so physical connectivity is very good.

    I really want that he recognized by the HP Print Wizard so that I can scan from the office.

    When I go to add the printer as a wireless printer, it detects the device OK showing its ip and mac, then goes on the installation of the printer and comes back with the unsuccessful installation of the device, and shows the red x between the router and the printer.

    Any ideas? It was working fine until I reinstalled the printer software.

    Another way to scan office without using the HP print wizard?

    All assistnce solve will be appreciated.

    Hi DLreportin,

    Thanks for the reply!

    In the software you wish to select Connect new printer. Not really sure why you were running the software again if I don't believe it was part of one of my suggestions.

    If I understand well after the steps of my above after you are still unable to make a copy through the ADF?

    Did you update the firmware, or connect the printer to the wall makes no difference?

    Please let me know it's going, and if you are still unable to copy after checking these two things and then I will consider a deeper reset for you.

  • HP officejet 6110xi all-in-one: older hp printers is not compatible windows 8.1

    I have a hp officejet 6110xi and I have a new Microsoft Surface Pro 3 8.1 Windows running.

    After you install the printer software, I get the following message when I try to open HP Director:

    This program has compatibility issues

    HP ImageZone

    You can get help online and see more information about program compatibility issues.

    Online has been no help so far. I run the Setup Wizard, checked the drivers, etc. etc. It doesn't seem to be an update to run on Windowes 8.1.

    HP simply tells me to throw out my perfectly good printer and buy a new HP printer?


    The printer make compatible with Windows 8.1, however only basic functionality is available.

    HP Director is part of the Windows XP software, it is not intended for any later operating system.

    First uninstall all incompatible HP software from the control panel > programs and features.

    Then, follow these steps to install the basic drivers available from the Windows Update servers:


    You can scan using Windows Fax and Scan or paint, only scanning photos is supported you will find listed in the frequently asked questions section.

    There are 3rd party solutions that can allow some additional features, you can try NAPS2 which is freeware software to scan PDF as an example:
