Connecting To Network Printer

HP Recommended
Officeject ENVY 7855 Printer
Microsoft Windows Vista

Hello,

I recently purchased a HP Office jet Envy 7855 printer and I was able to set it up as a network printer and connect a desktop computer I have with Windows Vista on it to the network printer. I am currently trying to connect a lap top computer I have with Windows Vista on it to the same network printer. When I run the installation software the installer sees the network printer with the correct IP address and MAC address for the network printer but fails to install the printer. There is an red X between the router and printer on the software dialog. When I view network devices on the lap top the network printer is present. Any assistance in helping me resolve the problem would be appreciated.

Welcome to the HP Community

 

Assign Manual IP to the printer:

 

1) Print a Network configuration page from the printer's control panel. 

2) Look for IP address from the Network configuration page. 

3) Open web browser - Chrome or IE or any other browser that you are using. 

4) Type the IP address mentioned on Network configuration page into the browser's address bar or URL bar and press enter button. 

5) Go to the Network tab. 

6) Click on Networking from the left pane. 

7) Then click on Network Address (IP). 

😎 Click on Manual IP Address and go to suggest a Manual IP. 

9) Scroll down the screen and select Manual DNS server. 

10) Enter the Primary and secondary DNS server from the Network Configuration page into the Manual Preferred DNS server field. 

11) Click on Apply. 

 

Refer to the video link for step by step instructions - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCnYyq80V9g 

 

Note: The video is for win 8 but steps are similar for other operating systems as well. You need to enter the IP address in the browser's URL or the address bar to access the printer page.

 

Then, I recommend you delete the driver at the root level and Install the drivers, follow the steps below:

 

Remove the USB if connected

 

1.) In Windows, search for and open Programs and features 

2.) Select your HP Printer 

3.) Select Uninstall 

4.) In Windows, search for and open Devices and printers 

5.) In the Devices and Printers windows look for your HP printer. If you see it listed right-click on it and choose `Delete' or `Remove Device' 

6.) Open up the run command with the "Windows key + R" key combo. 

7.) Type printui.exe /s and click Ok. (Note: there is a space in between "printui.exe" and "/s") 

8.) Click on the "Drivers" tab 

9.) Look for HP Printer driver. If you see it Click on it and click Remove at the bottom 

10.) Select Ok

11.) Select Apply and Ok on the Print Server Properties windows

12.) Close Devices and Printers 

 

Then, Click on this link: https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers to download and install the full-featured software and driver.

 

Try to print.

 

Keep me posted, how it goes!
