Re: HP Officejet 4500 wireless connect setup problem

nope, didn't help. All green checks but working like this:  scans properly, but doesn't print. If I use usb connection (only, not both types config) it works excelent. But I want to use it wirelessly cuz the device is away from the pc. Thank you.

P.S. I did all the self test configs from c.panel and from the pc. No change. I'm not an expert but I think the spooling is spoiling everything :smileyhappy:

Let's make sure the printer is not broken.  Can it make a copy from the front of the printer?

 

Did you uninstall the HP software using the HP uninstaller, reboot and then download and install the latest software for your printer from the "Support & Drivers" link at the top of this page.

Re: HP Officejet 4500 wireless connect setup problem

Yep, it does copy from the front of the machine. Does everything perfectly via USB cable. Via wi-fi does everything except printing a file from the laptop. All other functions work properly and also from the panel of the device (which functions are available). I didnt install the software from this site because I see the version is earlier than this from the CD. Mine is 130.0.44.62. That from the site is 130.0.00.00 I think. Thank you.

Did you uninstall with the HP uninstaller, reboot and then re-install from the CD, then?

Re: HP Officejet 4500 wireless connect setup problem

Yes, I did. Actually I did it a few times trying the wi-fi connection, keeping both types and now I am with the only USB type.

With all three installations for connection type USB works properly. That's why I think wi-fi works in very speciffic conditions - windows edition, version, momental condition, also speciffic software installation on the same machine and etc. I know it will work some day and will keep trying. Maybe I have to change screensaver, or the time it kicks in, or to install/delete a game, or use demon tools instead of alcohol. Who knows? Not IT specialist yet :smileyhappy: That's why when windows crashes it's reinstalled but not corrected.

Anyway, appreciate your help. Hope to solve the problem soon.

P.S. I thought I could print from another PC thru internet with this printer.

It also may be your router.  Have you restarted it or tried another one?
