Welcome to HP support community.

 

Did you uninstall the printer driver from root level and reinstall it?

If not, follow the below steps:

Perform root level uninstallation to remove all the printer related software's.

  • In Windows, search for and open Programs and Features.
  • Select your HP printer.
  • Select Uninstall.
  • In Windows, search for and open Devices and Printers.
  • In the Devices and Printers window look for your HP Printer. If you see it listed, right-click on it and choose "Delete" or "Remove Device.”
  • Open up the run command with the "Windows Key + R" key combo.
  • Type printui.exe /s and click OK.
  • Click on Drivers tab.
  • Look for HP Printer driver. If you see it click on it and click Remove at the bottom.
  • Select OK.
  • Remove all instances of the same.
  • Select Apply and OK on the Print Server Properties windows.
  • Close Devices and Printers. 
  • Restart the PC again.

I hope that helps.

when I input printui.exe /s  I receive the following message, "Server properties cannot be viewed.  The local print spooler service is not running.  Please restart the spooler or restart the machine."  I have done this process several time and receive the same message.

I received no error message.  After numerous attempts to download printer drivers for a HP Officejet Pro 8710 I continue to receive a message in setup that, "driver is unavailable."  Among the steps I have followed are delete print drivers from root directory, added.old to spool drivers, make sure printer spool was running.  So far none of the steps have worked.  The machine I am using is a Samsung notebook that had windows 7 pro which I updated to windows 10 pro.  I also have a HP notebook which has had no problems using the HP 8710.  The HP notebook had windows 10 home when purchased.  Any ideas?

This might required remote access of the computer to fix the issue.

I request you to talk to HP support.

They might have multiple options to help you with this.

  1. Click on this link - https://support.hp.com/us-en/contact-hp?openCLC=true
  2. Select the country.
  3. Enter the serial of your device.
  4. Select the country from the drop-down.
  5. Click on "Show Options".
  6. Fill the web-form. A case number and phone number will now populate for you.

I hope that helps.
