Hi! I have tried everything. It all used to work great. I have a MacBook wirelessly connected to my HP Photosmart. All used to be great. Now I can't get it to print. Occasionally I can get a Word doc to print. I can get one page of a pdf to print. I have tried reset, restart, reinstall, print as an image. . . what is going on? Why won't it print?! Please help!!!!!!

G'day and welcome to the forums.

Upgraded the operating system lately? HP are renowned for slow moving updates. As a suggestion try running from USB to see if it will work at all.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Do you mean check to see if there is an update from HP? I am upgraded on Lion, but not Mountain lion. I can't get it to run from the USB. I can't figure that out.

Yes do a Google search with the HP model number and go to the web site and see if there is an OS X.7 download available for drivers. Helps if you provide the model details.
