Printer Validation Error

Hey there @kledbetter, Welcome to the HP Forums:)

 

I wanted to stop in and try to help out with the issues you're having with your Officejet 8710 showing a validation error. I am looking for some clarifying information in order to help out with this issue.

 

  1. Where are you seeing the error (computer or printer display)?
  2. Are you able to print/copy/scan?
  3. Are you connecting the printer USB/Wireless/Ethernet?
  4. List the troubleshooting steps you have tried please, and we can go from there.

 

 

I hope to hear from you:)

Printer Validation Error

I am getting the error when I try to print wireless and it goes thru the steps and then when I select my printer it states that printer validation failed. I can print when I connect with the usb cord. I'm only having problems when I try to print wireless.

 

Thanks for your help.

Printer Validation Error

Hey kledbetter,

 

Try going through each step to connect to the wireless network and have the printer set up wireless to your computer as shown here: Wireless Printer Setup (Windows)

 

If there are errors or error messages when connecting to your network, please tell me all details. Try printing from a few programs after the wireless setup and installation and let me know what happens.
