According to HP, the printer is not yet supported on Windows 7, so this could well be the answer. The printer is supported by Microsoft's drivers, but as far as I can tell, this is just a basic driver with no frills.

"If it isn't fully supported, you can either run it inside a virtual machine such as XP Mode or Virtual Box and install the driver through there (If printer is a network one, it will be easy... If the printer is USB, you have to enable USB Pass-through).

However, Just looked up a picture of the printer - are you sure there isn't a way to manually do this? It is usually achieved by holding down a button."
