HP OfficeJet 3830 all-in-one. Worked fine two days ago. Yesterday I got a "driver is unavailable" error. I tried removing and re-adding the printer, which didn't work. Tried resetting the printer to factory defaults and reconnecting it, which didn't work. I am out of ideas. Need help quickly.
I have the same problem. I have not been able to use my printer now in weeks. I have uninstalled the software, uninstalled the printer in Settings/Printers, uninstalled the driver in Device Manager, and when I try to uninstall the driver in the printer server under Settings/Printers, I get told that the driver is in use. Windows Troubleshooter reports it can't see the printer on the network, but... it is seen on the network just fine. No firewall, no proxies, the connection type is set to home, Print Spooler & networking services are all enabled.
This looks like a bug, so it really doesn't surprise me that no staff has answered your question. It would be nice to know if this is a bug from the last update (I think it is since this didn't start happening until the last update), and, if so, if it is being worked on and what the anticipated time frame for completion would be.
I have done all that you have and still unable to print from an OJ3831. Have been on the case for days. I can get it to print from some of my network PC's but not my laptop. The laptop will print if connected on USB however.
Would chuck it out but cannot afford anew printer (definitely non HP)
