printer randomly prints garbage

HP Office Jet Pro 8710
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

If I request a print everything goes fine.  The problem is the random pages printed with garbage.  The print is hooked up wirelessly.  

 

The only wording that seems to repeat is Cookie:  mstshash=Administr   Other pages are random characters.

 

I have looked online and seen this problem has been happening to others for years without a solution.  Hoping someone may have a solution by now.

@AdvPrinter

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community.

 

Let's run the HP Print and Scan Doctor:

 

Use this link for details on using the HP Print and Scan doctor: https://hp.care/2JyaC93

 

If the issue persists, let's do a root uninstall and reinstall of the software:

 

Unplug any USB cable, if any, before doing this.

 

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

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

14.) Type c:/programdata and click Ok. Go to Hewlett Packard folder, remove any printer related folders & files.

15.) Restart the computer.

 

Once done, please download and install the software from here:

Let's use a TCP/IP Port to print:

 

Create a TCP IP port

 

1. Print a Configuration Page to get the printer's IPv4 address (you can also tap on the wireless icon on the front panel of your Printer to get the IP address)

2. On your PC, go to Control Panel, from Devices and Printers, right-click the printer and left-click Printer Properties, select the Ports tab.

3. Click Add Port, select Standard TCP/IP Port, then select New Port and follow the wizard.

4. Type in the proper IP address for the printer.

 

This video resource will show you how to do it:
