Hi,

This question is regarding a hp deskjet 3650 printer. When I installed the

It is not printing strange characters.... the printer preferences dialog box
is appearing with garbled text, which cannot be read...

Please tell me how to correct this.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Cari,

Thanks for your reply.
I tried reinstalling the printer... and it appears the same. The printer
preferences dialog box appears with garbled text even after reinstalling the
printer.
Any other solutions pls?

Are you sure you got the right language version of the printer software for
the country that your PC resides in?

Yeah... it is the right driver. Could it be something wrong with the windows
installation? I read something like that earlier regarding the same
problem... I reinstalled windows in that system without formatting, and now
that driver doesn't function correctly.

And it's just the printer dialog box that is 'garbled'? Nothing else?

I'm having a similar issue with a networked Lexmark T652 printer preferences dialog box on a Windows XP (SP 3) machine. The print jobs appear fine. The printer preferences dialog box is in the normal shape, but appears to show the code names used to create the tabs, radio buttons, etc., rather than the GUI names. As a tech person, I can understand the dialog box, but my user cannot.

Examples: (radio buttons) !rbPortrait , !rbLandscape , (section re:)  !sglCopies , (number input box) !sCopies , (checkboxes) !chkCollate , !chkLastFirst , (top of the dialog box tabs) !tabPage , !tabPaper , !tabQuality , !tabOther

There aren't other users with the same issue. The printer has been deleted (twice) and re-installed with a CD and the Lexmark (latest at this time) Complete driver package. The next steps are setting it up with Lexmark's Universal driver, and lastly to connect it directly with a USB cable (That's unlikely to help since it's not the print jobs that are faulty).

I'm having the exact same problem with my HP Photosmart Prem C310.
It prints fine, but the printer preferences window has garbled text and tabs and the drop downs are blank.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled the driver with no effect.

Please let me know of any suggestions.
