Hi, I had the same problem after upgrading my Mac Pro to Lion. After trying all sorts of things I eventually solved the problem by uninstalling the the Lion HP printer update that is installed after using Software Update and replacing it with the HP printer folder that was installed on my old Snow Leopard clone disk that I had created in case of any Lion problems.

To do this, delete the HP folder from the Printers folder in the Library folder on your OSX disk. Go to print and fax in your system preferences and delete the B9180 printer. Then copy the HP folder from the Snow leopard back up and paste it into the Printers folder in the Library folder on your Lion disk. Then add the printer back using the print and fax button in the system preferences. The printer should now work properly. This procedure fixed my problem but I must admit I haven't had time to test the printer thoroughly yet, so there might be other glitches.

Another way to do it might be to uninstall the Lion HP folder the way I said above and then install the Snow Leopard driver from the extras folder of a Snow Leopard install disk.

Best of luck,
QUOTE Thanks
