Getting a Syntax Error Message When Trying to Print

My Windows XP PC suddenly won't print to my HP PSC 2210 printer. I can not print from webpages or emails. I get a "syntax error" message. I can however print test alignment pages, scan, or copy.

Any idea what this syntax error means or how to fix it? Searching the internet didn't help.

My only suggestion is to reinstall the printer software.

I have reinstalled the software--twice. I can print from word and pdf.

i only get this message when trying to print a webpage, email or anything that came through on line.

You may want to check out this tech board:

It sounds as if it could be simple fixes, like making sure scripting is enabled in your Internet Tools/Properties; or you having two anti virus programs running, creating a conflict ( if that's the case, run only one) or as sinister as something like Hijack or another virus, worm or other creepy crawly in your computer.

Read through the link page for lots more info--good luck.

There is a site called the "Computer Lady". Here is the site: eboston AT gwi.net. She has saved me more than once.

Since you mention further in comments that you can print from a Word or PDF document:

What I would do is copy and paste the individual emails or website information you're interested in into a new Word or PDf document until you can find out what the problem is.

Try contacting Dear Webby for the particular problem you're having too :-)
