HP printer deskjet 9300 issue

Post by dacflyer » Sun Mar 01, 2015 11:30 am

i have a HP deskjet 9300 printer, it works fine, but i think it is not useable with win7
it works fine on my XP
but i cannot find any drivers for win7. is there any or do i need to find another printer ?
i saw somewhere to use a 2100 drivers, but when i install them, the printer does not see em.
i'd rather have win7 drivers if they are somewhere.

I had installed Windows 7 in my computer several months ago and my older (but excellent)
HP printer would not work any more. This one worked from a install disc that came with it. Win 7 wants internet access to control the computer and will not accept the startup disc. Went on forums and such to figure out. Took advice bought special USB/Parallel cables. jumped thru a lot of hoops , wasted a lot of time and money. The closest I got to printing was everything operating correct right up to the "PRINT" button, then it refused to print. Bought new HP and every thing you do with it has to go thru the internet-Slow and navigation choices are minimal. Its like every thing else today- High Tech and Low Quality, another piece of crap. Then to rub salt into the wound, if you use some one else's ink, the printing stops dead in its tracks with a giant pop-up from HP saying COUNTERFEIT INK . Also the low ink warning comes up before you are half way thru the cartridge. Wasted a lot of ink before I figured that one out. Hope you have better luck than I had. You might give the HP forum a shot as I think they have some knowledgeable people there. But apparently the advice I got wasn't from any of them.

What version of Windows 7 are you using?

This is the solution that HP is using.

After years of being a loyal HP printer user I am backing off. The older monochrome printers were work horses but the color lasers are another tale of woe. Too many quality problems, and their OEM supplies cost more than a new printer. Gone are the days when HP meant quality test gear and now it's planned obsolescence.
