With my brand new HP DeskJet 3510 series, the wireless setup completes "successfully" on windows 7 x64. However, the first attempt to print -- even a test page -- immediately sends the printer offline. It won't go online again. But it prints fine wirelessly from a Mac. Any Ideas? I have tried all the diagnostic tools -- windows and HP. On hour 4 right now. Thanks!

Are you not able to print from the windows computer at all right now? Try downloading and running the Print and Scan Doctor made by HP to help diagnose any possible issues.
Let me know if this helps!

Thank you for the response, but my problem is unchanged.
To summarize, I can print wirelessly from a Mac to my DeskJet 3510, but I cannot print wirelessly from my Windows 7 (x64) laptop because the printer immediately displays a status of offline in the printer control panel. (However, I can use the Windows laptop to reach the printer's web page and print a test page from it, and I can use the Windows laptop to scan to the computer.) The HP Print and Scan Doctor app shows no problems and Windows troubleshooting communicates with the printer and then reports that the printer is turned off. The printer is *not* off because at any time during the long process I can print wirelessly from a Mac.
The step-by-step is this:
1) I reset my cable modem and my router
2) I restart my Windows computer and my Mac
3a) I reset the printer to factory settings.
3b) I run from a Mac the HP installer "Deskjet-3510-series-v12-2.23.dmg"
3c) I reset the printer to factory settings.
3d) I run from Windows 7 (x64) the "DJ3510_1315.exe" downloaded today from the Internet.
4) In either case, I am informed the setup was successful.
5) In either case, I can print wirelessly from the Mac.
5) Initially after setup, the default printer " HP Deskjet 3510 series (Network)" displays a status of Ready.
6) However, if I attempt to print to that printer on WIndows, or even go to the printer properties and print Test Page:
5a) The status goes to Printing.
5b) A message box says that a test page has been sent to the printer.
5c) An HP window flashes by, thanking me for using genuine HP inks, or some such, too quick to read.
5d) An HP window opens with the message "Unable to Communicate with Printer" -- The print job could not be completed because the printer is unavaible or not connected. Check your cable or wireless connection, and make sure the printer is powered on ... you might have an IP conflict ....
7) In this Unable to Communicate box, the options are Cancel Print or Help, and Help takes you to HP Print and Scan Doctor
8) HP Print and Scan Doctor concludes that "Everything checks out okay with your product" and offers to print a test page.
8) I choose "Test Print"
9) The test page does not print, and Windows continues to report a printer status of Offline.
10) I point my web browser to the printer (http://192.168.1.6), where the home page says the printer has a status of Ready.
11) I go to the Tools tab and successfully Print Self Test Page.
12) The test page says Network Status: Ready
13) I return to Windows' Control Panel > Devices and Printers, right-click on the printer and choose Troubleshooting
14) The troubleshooter deletes the pending print jobs (test pages) and concludes:
Printer is turned off. The printer needs to be turned on in order to print.
15) At any time, I can print wirelssly from my Mac laptop.
Obviously, this is time consuming and I am close to returning the printer to the store.
Any help is appreciated.

In the event that this does not work, we can try installing an alternate driver for the printer. Shane actually wrote a wonderful set of instructions on how to do this, and I will link you to those below.
Let me know if either of these solutions helps!

Unfortunately, changing the print driver did not affect my inability to print wirelessly from a Windows 7 computer.
If I connect the computer to the printer with a USB cable, I am able to print using the print driver that was installed by the HP software. Are you saying that the exact same print driver that works in a USB connection could have a different result when printing wirelessly?
I am loath to uninstall Internet Explorer on a hunch, when the recommended print driver *does* work, though through USB.
Are you saying you have seen my issue before -- where the printer goes offline immdiately after a print job is submitted, and where Windows troubleshooter connects to the printer and then reports the printer is turned off?
Or is changing the print-driver a catch-all solution for this issue, of which you have no direct specific knowledge?
Thank you for your time.

The drivers for USB and for a wireless process data in very different ways, and if the printer has only been setup with over USB you will have to use the software and install another instance of the device as wireless.
Let me know!

The first time ever, the software was installed for a wireless connection. The printer setup completed, reporting success on the Windows 7 computer, completely wirelessly. The USB cable was still in its package.
The first time I tried to print, the printer status went to offline. I subsequently ran through the entire setup with the USB option. I have uninstalled both printers and reset the factory setup on the printer multiple times. I can print to the printer with the USB cable connected, but not the wireless printer. I can even scan wirelessly from the printer to the Windows 7 computer. But I cannot print to it wirelessly.
Can you tell me if you have seen these symptoms before, or if the problem as I describe it is not fully understood?

Were you able to scan while you were connected through the USB cord?
My next question is, have you ever had antivirus or firewall software on your computer? This would also include any expired trial versions that may have come pre-installed on your computer.
10-31-2012 01:12 PM
Yes, I am able to scan while connected through the USB cable. I scan by going to the URL for the printer in my browser. Note also that I can print a test page wirelessly from my Windows computer by going to the URL from the printer.
I just cannot print wirelessly to the printer.
Yes, I have MacAfee on this computer. It is the only antivirus software that has ever been on this computer, which came preinstalled from Dell. This laptop used to print to a Canon printer wirelessly just fine, before that printer died. MacAfee reports no issues, problems or viruses. What would the follow-up recommendation be if I said I had no antivrus, or several antivirus programs?
I checked my windows firewall and saw eight instances of HPSAPS (HPDiagnosticCoreUI.exe). I removed them, to no effect.
Other enabled programs in Windows Firewall include: HP Device Setup (HP Deskjet 3510 series); HP Network Communicator (HP Deskjet 3510 series); HP Network Communicator COM (HP Deskjet 3510 series).
Is there anyone else working this forum with you whom you can share my information and might have seen this issue before? It's hard for me to believe that I am the only one who has experienced this difficulty.
Thanks you for your time.

First, let's try the steps outlined in the last post on this thread from the McAfee forums: http://goo.gl/4CqrH
This deals with a Canon printer, but these ports are printing specifically.
If not, I will find the specific port numbers and you can contact McAfee to open them.
I hope this helps!
