I think you're talking about the deskjet 3520 all in one.
I'm afraid but the 3520 is only supported on Mac OS X 10.6 or +.
Only 2 options:
- Upgrade to 10.6
- Contact the retailer to replace the printer into a different model which supports your OS (e.g. Deskjet 3070A is ok i got one, Photosmart 5510 too)
Indeed the Deskjet 3520 e-All-in-one require Mac OS X 10.6 or above as stated above.
you may find the system requirements listed below:
I found a workaround which may help someone else out there. Once you know how it is easy but it's not obvious.
This will only work if you have another computer that is compatible with this printer and is on the same network (wired or wireless doesn't matter). In my case I have an iMac running 10.7.5 that is conected to the HP 3520 All in One. These instructions are get a second computer to connect to the HP 3520. The second computer is running OSX 10.5.8 (in my case a G5 with the highest OSX it can have) .
First on the iMac, I opened the System Preferences and selected Print & Scan. Click on the HP 3520 and check the "Share this printer on the network" box. Go to the older Mac running OSX 10.5.8 and click Print from any document. Click to the left of the word Printer and select Add Printer from the pop-up list. In the list of printers that appears on the left side you should now have the choice of selecting "HP 3520 @ iMac". Select this printer and you can print.
If you click on the "HP 3520 [Bonjour]" printer it does not work. The printer name has to contain the @ symbol to work. The @ symbol means the document is going through the other computer that has the driver installed, in my case an iMac with OSX 10.7.5.
Hope this helps.
You would be far better served by working with HP than Staples. It's one of their machines, they write the drivers and relate to Apple albeit a little late on occasions. Staples are in the business of making a sale ... any sale in my experience. Try phoning HP to double check the good advice in earlier posts.
Or in whatever country you are located.
