Trouble getting pages to print? Try the HP Print and Scan Doctor

[ Edited ]

When you try to print, does your print job get “stuck” and never come out of your printer?

 

HP suggests that you download and run the HP Print and Scan Doctor. While not all types of printing communication problems are addressed with this software utility, many common problems are resolved. This utility can be used to troubleshoot and in some cases directly fix common connectivity problems experienced with many of HP’s desktop printers and all-in-one devices when used on Windows XP, Vista, Win 7, and Win 8 systems (administrator privileges are necessary in order to run the utility).

 

If the HP Print and Scan Doctor detects missing or incompatible software parts, the utility will offer to uninstall the current parts so that a subsequent reinstall process will go smoothly.  The uninstall / reinstall process usually resolves printing connectivity issues with a minimum of further fuss.

Please Give HP Your Feedback!  If you use the HP Print and Scan Doctor, HP would like to hear from you afterward  – there’s a survey link built right into utility and it only takes a minute or two.  Your ideas on how to improve the Print and Scan Doctor help HP design new features and enhancements for all of our customers.  Thanks for taking the time to respond.

 

Do you have a networked printer?

 

If your printer is network connected rather than connected via USB, you may be experiencing network related connectivity issues.  Any network connectivity issues must be addressed first.  The HP Print and Scan Doctor will also check for and help you resolve network issues that previously required a separate utility (the HP Network Diagnostic Utility).  With the HP Print and Scan Doctor this is no longer necessary!  HP has combined all features of the Print Diagnostic Utility and Network Diagnostic Utility into one next generation utility!

 

The HP Print and Scan Doctor runs on Windows XP, Vista, Win 7, and Win 8.  You will need administrator privileges in order to run the utility.

  

Scanning Problems?

 

 The HP Print and Scan Doctor will also check for and help you resolve problems that users can experience when scanning.

 

If you are experiencing problems connecting to your all-in-one scanner, please download and run the HP Print and Scan Doctor for further analysis and correction of many scanning connectivity problems.
