    I have an hp psc 2210v AIO printer. I works great, but it only seems to print for my account on Windows. My account has Administrator rights. If my sister uses her account which has limited rights, it doesn't seem to print. Does anyone know what I can do to remedy this problem? So that all users are able to print.

    did you check to make sure that it was the default printer under her account?

    It is the default printer. It seems to send a command to initialize the printer when you try to print, but it stops there.

    Which OS? XP or 2k?
    If XP:
    1. go to printers & faxes config box in control panel
    2. RIGHT click on the printer in question and choose properties
    3. click on the security tab
    4. click ADD then ADVANCED then FIND NOW
    5. find her user account in the list and click on her name once then click OK and click the next OK box

    Her name will now appear in the list of authorized users. Make sure the Print and Manage Documents boxes are checked. CLick OK at the bottome and you should be golden.

    Hope that helps...
