Solved!

Printing

HP Recommended
HP Envy-13-aq0000na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have had this laptop for a couple of weeks after my old one crashed after 14 years!

I have various issues with it which will be largely down user error but I have no idea how to resolve them.

My first issue is printing. I have an HP Envy 5540 all in one wireless printer which I successfully set up but it wouldn't print in colour. I followed a support thread on the community page and deleted and reinstalled a couple of times it printed in colour once. Now it wont print at all. It sees the printer and says its ready but when I try to print it comes up with an error printing message and says it cannot print the document. This is in Word, Excel and from the internet. The printer is working fine though as I am able to print from m y phone and iPad. Help please

Try adding the printer using TCP/IP port-

 

1.  Select “Start” and type “printers” in the search box. 

2.  Choose “Printers & scanners“. 

3.   elect “Add a printer or scanner“. 

4.  Wait for the “The printer that I want isn’t listed” option to appear, then select it. 

5.   Select “Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname”, then select “Next“. 

6.   select “TCP/IP Device” in the “Device type” list. 

7.  Type the hostname or the IP address of the printer. Select “Next“. To find the IP address of the printer, touch the Wi-Fi icon on the printer's control panel.  

8.  Windows should find the printer if the printer is on and configured correctly. You may have to specify more information. If prompted, select the type of network adapter installed in the printer in the “Device Type” drop-down list. You can also click “Custom” to specify custom settings for the network printer. Select “Next“.

 

Try printing.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

@Hopeless_741, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

Follow the steps below-

 

Use HP Print and Scan Doctor

Download HP Print and Scan Doctor and run the program. It will automatically diagnose and fix any printing/scanning issues. 

For more information, go to https://support.hp.com/us-en/topic/printscandoctor

 

Check the printer driver settings. Refer to the document for help- HP Printers - Print Driver Settings Guide (Windows)

 

If the issue persists, I recommend you delete the driver and root level and retry, follow the steps below: 

  

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”

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.

 

Use this link to download and install the new driver. Configure the printer and try printing.

 

If you still have issues, try the Windows built-in drivers. Follow the steps below:

 

•  Uninstall the printer drivers. Go to Control Panel - Devices and Printers - Click on "Add printer" and follow the on-screen instructions.

•  When the page prompts for the drivers, select "Windows update". The driver list will be updated.

•  Click HP, Hewlett Packard, or Hewlett-Packard in the Manufacturer pane, and then click the name of your printer in the Printers pane.

 

Refer to this document HP Printers - Installing and Using the Windows Built-in Print Driver for help

 

Keep me posted.
