psc 2410 + Mac 10.6.8 + Office for Mac 2011

by georgeineurope / November 28, 2011 2:16 AM PST

I need help out of my self-inflicted black hole. Have been running Snow Leopard for mos without probs. Just downloaded Windows Off for Mac 2011 and now I can't print anything. Though old, my HP psc 2410 photosmart has always worked like a charm. I have worked through all of the online helps. Wanted to post a new one on HP but forgot my ID. They want me to change my email address to attempt to enter a question. DO I REALLY HAVE TO BUY A NEW PRINTER!! Preferences says software is missing....I've erased and downloaded everything multiple times. Anyone going thru this too?

Office 2011

The demo version was actually printng just fine - Excel, Word, & PowerPoint. But then a couple of days ago it quit. I decided to purchase Office online, but the download didn't solve the problem.

The purchased version failed. This is where I suggest you backup your documents first, uninstall Office and then install the full version. BUT FIRST try printing in another user account.

Hey, thanks for the help, but having slightly more money than sense, I just went to the store and replaced a perfectly good printer so I could be sure it's drivers were Snow Leopard compatible. Anybody want a prestine psc 2410 photosmart for free with a bunch of ink cartridges? You have a week or so to fly to Brussels to pick it up or else my trash man gets dibs.
