I have the HP deskjet 3520, I used it with a laptop for 3 months (wirless printing) Then I upgraded to a desktop PC.
The printer worked fine for the laptop and for about 2 months on the computer but now the drivers seem to corupt every time I restart the computer. This means I have to uninstall and re-install the drivers, then the printer works (wirlessly) but once i shut down the computer and then try to print something a few days later it doesn't work.
I used the HP print/scan doctor to deduce that it is the drivers that are corrupting but it doesnt fix them from corrupting again. I assumed this would be a common problem but I cant find anything on the web about it so Im posting on here. Does anyone know how to fix this?
- I have had this issue for 8 months or so now, i've just been to busy to get it fixed.
- Also, the printer is still fine. It allows me to print from my tablet and phone no issues but not from my PC.

Welcome to the HP Support Forums! I see you are running into some problems with the HP Deskjet 3520 software being corrupt. Everytime you restart the computer you must uninstall and reinstall the drivers, you have tried running the HP PSDR with no success. To better assist you can you please let me know the following:
1. What is your current Windows Operating system?
2. How is the DJ 3520 connected, USB or Wireless?
3. When you attempt to print, what are the error messages you are receiving?
I will watch for your reply so we can begin troubleshooting.

3.No error's, the printed document goes into a que and and so i can see it on the windows toolbar but never prints, so i close the program run psdr and that says 'drivers corrupt, uninstall and re-install.

We are running the HP PIW which will hopefully install software and drivers for the printer that are not corrupted.

Unfortunatly, this didn't work.
I did everything above and then printed a test page and it all worked fine. I then printed a word document that needed printing this also worked fine. However, the printer always was fine after a install the problem occurs after a restart/shut down.
So i restarted the computer and then opened word and tryed printing a page that said test. When I choose the printer in the options it said it was offline rather than online and just as before once i press print the document goes into an offline que so that when the printer comes online it will print.
I did however try something i never thought of befor and that was to go directly into the hp inkjet 3520 software and print a test page via there, wirdly this worked fine. So i returned to MS word thinking that maybe by launching the software made the printer appear online but it was still ofline and not working for word and any program other than to official HP software.
