Thanks Andre and Bob,

Good tips.  Never thought of console.  I'll have to add it as a must-do to my troubleshooting checklist.

I spent a lot of time googling until I realized I was just chasing ghosts. And IMHO HP is notorious for really badly written drivers, for both PC and Mac. I bought 3 separate models of printers where the drivers on the CD that came with it did not actually work! I always get the drivers from the support site now.
