How to uninstal partially installed files on Laserjet PRO MFP M127fn

HP Recommended
Laserjet PRO MFP M127fn

I was instaling the software for my Laserjet PRO MFP M127fn and suddenly there was power failure and an error massage. Now, i'm trying to reinstal but i got this massage ''the  prior product installation failed to complete. The partially installed files must be uninstalled before you rerun the product installation''. i have searched for the installed files but i could not find it in my computer.

 

Please what should i do?

 

Thanks.

Hello, @vikkywhyte – Hope you are well!
 

Thank you for becoming an HP Forum member. It is a great location to get help from the community, get suggestions and find what has worked for others.

 

I see that you have not mentioned your operating system. To give you specific steps, I would like to know the operating system on your computer.

 

If you are using Windows OS, try Microsoft Fix it to remove / uninstall the files. Get the software and instructions here: http://hp.care/2dHImNI

If you are using MAC OS X, follow the document to uninstall the old files: http://hp.care/2cD0tFl

 

Please let me know if this resolves the issue, or if you require further assistance.

Cheers 🙂

Hello, @vikkywhyte

 

Try the steps below to remove the old printer software and to install the new one:

 

  • First, unplug the USB cable from the printer if present.
  • Go to Control Panel – Programs and feature – Select all the HP LaserJet printer entries and uninstall them.
  • Now go to Control Panel – Devices and Printer – Select all the printer entries and remove the device.
  • Press the "windows key" + "r" to get the "Run" window open - Type "printui.exe /s" (There is a space between .exe & /) and press enter.
  • Under print server properties, go to drivers - remove any entry there as well.
  • Again, go to the Run window, type – “c:/programdata” – Go to Hewlett Packard folder, remove any printer related folders & files.
  • Restart your computer.
  • Now, click http://hp.care/2peoGtG to download and install the software.
  • Connect the USB cable if prompted and follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation.


Let me know how that goes!

Good luck 🙂

Hello, 

I have exactly the same problem with win7. I have HP LASERJET PRO MFP M127. I did all of the steps that you suggested, but it didn't help me. I still get the "the prior product installation failed to complete. the partially installed files must be uninstalled before you rerun the product installation" windows. Can you help?

thank you,
