Why is HP so bad at customer service?

HP Recommended

Why is it so hard to contact someone at HP for printer support? They just send you to a group chat basically to try and wonder your way around aimlessly looking for an answer. Will never buy a HP printer again.

For an "In Warranty" device, it should be easy to submit your case.

If your device is NOT in Warranty, that's a different situation.

 

NOTES

  1. If you wish to pay for phone / out-of-warranty support, let me know and I will forward a request.
  2. If your device is in Warranty and you cannot submit your case to Support, let me know and I will forward a request.

 

Reminder

Case submission is primarily directed at those whose devices are still in Warranty.

For the rest of us, this is not an option.

HP Support does not generally provide free service for out-of-warranty devices.

Our Community is not HP Support; we do offer help free of charge:

I know what you mean. In some ways they are very good. i.e. The chat or phone support where they are pleasant, friendly, empathise etc etc. However actually getting them to understand (I refer to the CHAT system using WhatsApp) your question or reply to the question....well....you might as well try and start a conversation between two languages where both sides have no idea how to speak the others' language. The WhatsApp system of support is absolutely hopeless.  Finally, nothing gets my back up more than people who start a conversation with "I hope you are well today or are you having a great day etc". No of course not because I am frustrated at the inability of anyone to understand a basic question OR having supplied all the information one could possibly need they still ask for it all again. Example: I have a problem with a "so and so" printer and the serial number is "so and so" and yes I have a warranty and date, receipt, case number etc etc is "so and so" AND this is my problem. What do they do: Hi, how are you today. I am your expert and am here to help you etc. Can I have your serial number and printer type and can you tell me the problem? aaaarghhhhhh. I could go on. There must be somebody who  trains these "so-called" support staff on even the basics and tell them to try and read first before attempting to resolve the issue/s.
