My Chromebook has stopped printing with my HP DeskJet 2600 series printer recently. When I drop down the menu and choose print and select my printer from the list, it automatically defaults to 'Save to PDF' when I release the mouse button. When I go into Advanced settings and choose 'add printer' I get a message 'none found'. Never had this problem until recently. Please advise. Thanks
Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:
Connect the printer to your Chromebook with a wireless or USB cable connection to complete the setup. No drivers or apps are required to set up your printer.
Update the Chromebook to the most current version of Chrome OS.
Make sure paper is loaded in the main tray, and then turn on the printer.
Connect the printer to the Chromebook.
USB printer connection: Connect the USB cable to the printer and Chromebook.
Wireless printer connection: Depending on your printer, use the Wireless Setup Wizard or Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) to connect to a wireless network.
Printers with a control panel menu , open the Setup, Network, or Wireless menu, select Wireless Setup Wizard, and then follow the instructions to connect the printer to the network.
Printers without a control panel menu , press and hold the Wireless button for five seconds. For HP DeskJet 6000 and 6400, ENVY 6000 and 6400, and Tango printers, press and hold the Wireless and the Power buttons on the rear of the printer for five seconds.
Within two minutes, press and hold the WPS button on the router until the connection process begins. The Wireless light or blue bar on the printer stops flashing when the connection completes.
On the Chromebook, click the clock in the bottom right corner, and then click the Settings icon .
Scroll to the bottom of the screen, and then click Advanced.
Under Printing, click Printers > Add Printer.
If your printer displays, select it, and then click Add.
