Imagine my surprise when it suddenly stopped printing images from the Internet and some documents. One day it was fine, the next day I got a blank piece of paper despite all the printer sound effects.
What the heck?!
As best I can find from my research, HP is no longer providing software support for the Deskjet 825c for Mac OS X 10.6 operating systems.
My Mac is OS X 10.5.8 -- but apparently that's close enough for HP. Thus, my perfectly workable printer no longer prints jpeg images.
Suffice it to say, when I get angry enough to replace my "working fine" printer, it will be a brand other than HP. (Yeah, like HP is quaking in its boots.)
I was raised by parents who grew up during the Depression. I am not a member of the Techie Generation (see my posting about being Vintage). I tend to use my stuff until it breaks or performs so poorly that I have to replace it. Thus, it galls me that high tech corporations are trying to shove unnecessary hardware purchases down my throat. Grrr!
