I have added the HP officejet 5740 printer and my chromebook sees the wifi network but when I try to print I cant get a preview and then get a printer communication error. Can anyone help please.

@shaun23  all you need to know about printing from chromebook:

Print photos, documents, webpages, and emails through the Chrome browser and supported apps.

  1. Open the item you want to print.

  2. Click the Chrome browser settings icon , and then select Print.

    Print menu in Chrome settings

  3. Next to Destination, click Change, and then select your printer.

    Select the printer as a print destination

  4. Change any print settings, and then click Print.

Additional install and setup options

Use these additional options to print from a Chromebook to an HP printer.
