My printer will not print because an error message keeps poping up. I tryed to uinstall and reinstall the software from the hp website because I lost the cd software. So far nothing has happened. I've been e-mailing the techs at HP for about three days and still nothing. Can someone help me before I go crazy? Here is the description of the situation so far.
Error message: printing of jobs for this printer stopped. do you want to continue and restart the printing of jobs? If you do not want to restart the printing of jobs, you may add this job to the queue for later printing. if you select continue and the printing of jobs cannot be restarted, this job will automatically be added to the queue. My printer will not print documents, fax, or scan, but it will make copies.
Please provide previous troubleshooting steps, or information that can help HP assist you.:
I've tried clicking the add to queue button, cancel button, and continue button. I've tried deleting the print jobs. Now I am trying to reinstall the HP software for the hp website. I no longer have the software on disk, but I had downloaded: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/softwar...Image-Zone.dmg ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/softwar...HPPrintOSX.dmg
/Volumes/2400_731_EN/hp all-in-one installer When trying to open the software, it wont allow me. This error message appears: QuickTime cannot open the file: "HP-Image-Zone.dmg" it is not a file that QuickTime understands (-2048)

2nd day HP Tech steps:
From your reply mail I see that you have downloaded the software from the web link but cannot open it. When you try to open it you are getting the following error message "ALERT"
QuickTime cannot open the file: "2400_772_EN.dmg"
it is not a file that QuickTime understands (-2048).
I would like to inform you that it sounds like QuickTime can't open the file, because it's only a fraction of a file, since the download did not complete. You can try to find the file again and see if the download will resume. If the issue persists then I would recommend you to perform the following steps,
Step 1: Uninstall the exsisting Printer software
1. Click on the Go menu
