Not sure about your model. But that ribbon is very likely the cord that send information to your print cartridge. It is supposed to be slack so that the print cartridges can move left and right. If you are able to reconnect it and make it stay you should be good. Likely when it is in the furthest position it is getting too tight and coming loose again. Hopes this helps.

Hi Yvonne,

Try the steps below

In the window that opens (Services) look for "Print Spooler" on the right

Right-click "Print Spooler" and select "Properties".

Click on the "Recovery" tab and change all 3 drop-down boxes to "Restart The Service".

Make sure the 2 text boxes underneath say "1" in them.

Click Ok until you are back at the Services window, close it and you're good to go.

Go back into the properties of the "Print Spooler" tab and be sure to click Start to restart the Print Spooler service and it will restart the service immediately.

The Print spooler depends on the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service. Is this service disabled? Go to services.msc look for RPC. Check state: Automatic

Hi Brendi,
Are you looking for Software and Drivers for your HP PSC 2175 for New Windows 7 PC ?

If so, you don't need to look for drivers because the drivers are in-built in your PC database.
All you need to do is connect your printer using USB Cable to your PC and Start printing.
You will have to use MS Paint for Scanning any document or use the Scanners and Camera's Option under Control Panel ( START - All Programs - Control Panel )

Follow the instructions here to get access to the glass and mirror. Use a lint free cloth. After reassembly, it still may not work. Just clean it again. It has to be very very clean.

It is my pleasure to guide you.

These steps will take you through the process of replacement and alignment.

HP PSC 2175 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1. Turn on the unit, then open the print-carriage access door by lifting the
handle until the door locks into place. The print carriage moves to the center of the unit.

2. After the carriage stops moving, lift the latch to release the print cartridge, then pull it toward you out of its slot.

3. If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print cartridge, store it in the print cartridge protector.

4. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape.

Caution! Do not touch the copper contacts or ink nozzles.

5. Push the new print cartridge into the appropriate slot until it clicks into place. The tri-color print cartridge goes on the left and the black or photo print cartridge goes on the right.

6. Pull the end of the latch toward you, press down until it stops, and then release. Make sure the latch catches below the bottom tabs.

7. Close the print-carriage access door.

align the print cartridges

The HP PSC prompts you to align cartridges every time you install or replace a print cartridge.

Aligning the cartridges ensures high-quality output.

To align the print cartridges when prompted:
1. Press Enter on the front panel. A page of patterns is printed. The cartridges are aligned correctly. Recycle or discard the page.

To align the cartridges at any other time:
1. Press Setup.
2. Press 2, then press 2.
This selects Maintenance, and then selects Align Print Cartridges.
A page of patterns is printed. The cartridges are aligned correctly. Recycle or discard the page.

Look in teh Drivers and Software section on the HP website for that printer and you should be able to download both the User manual and the Installation disc and drivers.
