Windows 7: Printing problem

08 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64
Printing problem

Windows 7 Home Premium 64
Office 2007
IE 8
HP 6200 USB connected printer
HP 8500 network connected printer.

None of the following applies to the HP 8500. It prints fine.

When printing from the following application programs no images print. Just text.
IE 8
MS Paint
MS Image Viewer

Printing from the following images print fine.
Windows Explorer (function of OS)
Firehand Ember (photo viewer)

I tried using System Restore and went back to May 9. Problem still exists.
But the problem did not actually exist on May 9.
HP site has no drivers. They say they are in Windows 7.
Is there something common to all MS apps that controls printing images?

Welcome Marauder2003. Is the printer in question HP 6200 USB, locally connected? That is directly to the PC.
Try a different USB port.
Unplug the printer, reboot and plug it back in.
Uninstall it and drivers in Device Manager.
Check printer setting to see how it is set to print, i.e., Background, etc.

Let us know if any of those steps work.

I will try that when I get a chance and I would agree if no images print. But at least 3 programs DO print images. Since images can be printed I don't think it is the printer, drivers or connection. It appears only MS apps don't print images.

IE9 has some options like that. Maybe the other apps do too?
