Re: HP Envy 5530 printer

Hi,

So, it seems like the software did finish the installation which is good to see.


When trying to print, have you attempted other sources to test other than "Turbo Tax"?
Do you get any error messages when attempting to print?

I do have a few options for you to try:

To start here are links to a few documents that may help you. I suggest trying these first.
Printer Does Not Maintain Wireless Connection. (HP)
Troubleshoot network printer problems. (Microsoft)

Also, you can try adding the printer in manually.
Go to Start> Control Panel> Printers> click on Add Printer> Add a local print> Click bullet by "Create new port", Choose "standard TCP/IP port"> press next> Type in the printers IP (should have been obtained when following the HP document) in the Hostname/IP address field (will auto fill port name with the same information)> press next> The printer should now be installing, click finish as it appears. Test printing.

I hope this was able to help you, thanks for your posts.

Re: HP Envy 5530 printer

I have tried with the usb cable and also without. I have downloaded every driver that was suggested. Nothing works.

Re: HP Envy 5530 printer

Is it possible it is not compatible with my Windows Vista 32 bit?

Re: HP Envy 5530 printer

Hi,

You can try adding an alternative driver, to see if this will work. This document will guide you through that: Installing and Configuring an Alternate Driver in Windows Vista. The driver that I would recommend trying for Vista, is the Deskjet 9800 driver.

Please attempt that, and let me know how things are proceeding.
