I am disgusted with their policy, Waited almost an hour to talk with technical support and three transfers, and I did it happily. Only then to be told they could not help me answer a small technical difficulty "Printer offline" even though full connection is there, because my printer is "out of warranty" Lady said I can give you number to buy a new HP printer...yeah, because that is what I want to do now. anyone else experience this? Buyer beware.

Welcome to the HP Community.

 

This is true - HP Support limits case acceptance to products in Warranty.

This printer is indeed "out of warranty" - it has been so for a number of years.

Product introduced in 2014

 

Yes, people have been disappointed before to find that support from the response center in HP is available for warrantied products but not generally available for "Out of Warranty" devices.

 

There is perhaps a fix for your printer issue - you can try the following else you can submit a new question to our Community to ask your question about the problem.

 

Scroll to bottom > Ask the Community

Post New Question

 

OR

 

Resource – Choose the right doctor for the job

 

Open Website

HP Print and Scan Doctor for Windows

Click the green Download Now option / box

Wait!

If the problem / issue is one or more of

 

  • Printer is Offline
  • Cannot print in Color
  • Duplex printing has disappeared
  • Installation continues to fail

 

Try this “Offline” Doctor version:

https://ftp.hp.com/pub/printers/hppsdr/patches/HPPSdr.exe

 

 

After the doctor runs, Restart the computer and log in.

Doctor will finish any necessary setups.

 

 

NOTES – The “Offline” doctor

 

As a result of repairing issues,

 

Offline / Color check / Duplex check version of the Doctor may replace the printer or add a “(Copy 1)” version of the driver in Devices and Printers.

 

If there are two printers in Devices and Printers,

If one of them does not work,

Try sending your job to the “Copy 1” named printer.

 

Later

If you want / need to rename the “Copy 1” printer:

Open Control Panel > icon view > Devices and Printers

Right-Click on the printer name > Printer Properties > Tab General >

In the top box, Edit the name of the printer (For example, remove the part that says “Copy 1”)

Click Apply / OK to save change

 

NOTE:  The name change may take a bit of time (a few minutes), else Restart the computer and log in.
