photo viewer couldnt find my default printer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm missing my printers in Photo Viewer.  It is set as my default printer and all other applications show it as an option in the print dialogue.  I  run the System File Checker/Scannow, which I did.  No problems were found by the scan.

    Printer : hp LJ 1020

    OS: Windows 7 32 bit

  • Well, you've done what you should.

    Click Start\Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers and right-click the laserJet 1020 and confirm it is set as the default printer.

    Right-click the printer and select the troubleshoot option and run the troubleshooter.

    Have you tried the "Host Based Plug & Play package" driver from HP?:


    Finally, from Start\Device and Printers, right-click the printer and remove it. Close out.

    Reboot and let Windows find the LJ 1020 again.
