Print queue on Mac OSX 10.15.1 shows 100% complete, yet nothing printing.

HP Recommended
MacBook Air
macOS 10.15 Catalina

HP Envy 4500, A9T80A, Print queue shows print job 100% complete, but the printer is not printing.  And that is using the HP print drivers.  I switch it over to Airprint, and if I power cycle the printer, I might get one print job to go, but nothing else.  And power cycling the printer does not always work. I have tried deleting and reinstalling the printer, and it will not reinstall.  It does see the printer, but will not complete the printer setup.  Unless, I power cycle the printer.  


I have contacted print phone support, they had me power cycle the printer and it prints one job, and they say "resolved", have a nice day. Bye Bye.   But it will not print the next document.  Since phone support does not care, I am not excited about restarting the printer every time I need to print.  And HP printer phone support says the printer is healthy, although they cannot access the printer webpage.


Any troubleshooting suggestions?

@Dkoeneman, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


If the printer is connected wirelessly, check the connectivity between the printer and the MAC

  • Make sure the printer and the MAC are connected to the same wireless network.
  • This printer supports only 2.4GHz network.
  • If you have a Dual-band router and both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks share the same name/SSID, the printer will not be able to connect to the network. In this case, contact your Internet service provider to assign different names to both the networks.

Perform a PING test

  1. Obtain the IP address of the printer by clicking on the Wireless icon on the printer
  2. On the MAC Go to Spotlight > search for Network utility > select Ping tab > enter the IP address of the printer in the box
  3. Check the second box that says Send only > 10 pings
  4. Click on ping > Check the results at the end if any packets are lost
  5. Note: There should be 0% packet loss, share the results in your next post.
