Hi @jeffbeal

Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you. This seems like a connectivity issue.

  • How is the printer connected to the MAC?
  • Check the connection.
  • Which application are you trying to print from?
  • Have you tried printing different types of documents like PDF, Word or Webpages and check if the issue persists?

Try making a standalone copy and check if that works. By this, we can conclude if this is a hardware or a driver issue.


Keep me posted for furhter assistance.
