3755 wired connection to a Macbook

HP Deskjet 3755

Hi,

 

I bought my daughter a Macbook Pro and this HP 3755 Deskjet printer.  Her Macbook has a USB adapter.  The dorm will not allow wireless printers or printers that generate there own WIFI so we need to run this connect via cable.  We plugged it in but it is not working.  Can someone point me to the correct download and procedure to run the printer locally like this?

 

Thanks,

 

Nathan

Hi Shlomil,

 

It is a OS Sierra.  As far as I know we have not downloaded the software.  When we first set it up, we did visit that sight and set the printer up on WIFI but the campus IT has blocked that and they do not allow WIFI printers or printers that are generating their own WIFI.  We are wanting to run this connected VIA USB.

 

THanks,

Hi TXnathan,

 

Yes, it is fine. You can follow the recommendation from Shlomil to visit https://123.hp.com/us/en/. Although it tries to look for Wifi, you can opt to select USB instead. Do try it out.

Nathan, I had the problem. Everything worked (scan, copy, no error messages) but it just wouldn't print. Days of working on this. The drivers were in and the system called the printer "Deskjet 3700 Series". I manually changed it to "Deskjet 3755 Series" and voila. Can't 'splain it, but it worked.
