Printer Offline

HP 8710
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

No matter what I try I cannot get my HP 8710 to work with one of my computers.  I can print (wirelessly) just fine from one, but not the other.  The "other" computer is a work computer, I am guessing it has to do with permissions or the firewall, or...?  Any suggestions?

@kellydd You've done all the right steps, just a few more to go and we should have that printer back online,

Before we jump into that:


Did you install the latest drivers and software from the HP website?

Or did you use the printer installation disc?


While you respond to that, I recommend you follow the below steps to reinstall the drivers on your device:


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 here to access the HP website, find the drivers compatible with your windows and install it.

If the issue persists, follow the below steps to assign a static IP to your device to resolve the issue for good:


Please follow the below steps to assign a manual/static IP to resolve your concern:


-Verify in the printer that 'Auto Off/Sleep' is disabled. Use the Embedded Web Server (EWS) by going to the printers IP address in your browsers address bar, click Settings Tab/Auto-Off. --Or use the Printer Assistant, Printer Home Page (EWS). Also, check your Printers Properties.

-If the printer supports and has IPv6 enabled, turn off IPv6 in the printer.

-If needed and you assigned a static IP address, try using for the Preferred DNS server and at the Alternate DNS server. 

-Verify the printer is on the latest firmware by checking with the HP Support site.


In the router: (Refer to your router manual for information) 


Use a fixed wireless channel like 1, 6 or 11, never 'auto', try channel 1 first then the rest. 

Set router to 20Mhz only, or 145Mbps depending on the router. 

Always use WPA2-AES (Personal) encryption, but you can try `mixed' mode. 

Disable WPS and never use it and disable UPnP for the routers security. Nobody can hack your system now and helps with wireless connectivity (if you want to know why search the web).

If you have a dual-band router (2.4Ghz and 5.0Ghz bands), make sure the SSID's are NOT the same, they must be different for all bands, even for any Guest networks.

SSID broadcast must be enabled.

Save all settings. Power off both, wait 2 mins. Power on the router and wait 2 mins. 

Power on the printer and verify it reconnects to the router


You can also refer to the below video for the same. 

Note that, in the video, the interface shown is the Windows interface, but the steps are the same as it done using a web browser. 

And the article may have the title of another printer, but the steps are bound to help resolve your concern as well.




P.S: Welcome to HP Community 😉


Keep me posted, as I (Or a trusted colleague) shall follow-up on this case to ensure the concern has been addressed, 

And your device is up and running again, only in case you don't get back to us, first! 

That said, If the information I've provided was helpful, give us some reinforcement by clicking the solution and kudos buttons, 

That'll help us, and others see that we've got the answers!

Good Luck.
