PRINTER SETUP

HP Recommended
OFFICEJET 5255
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Can I use the Officejet 5255 with my PC? I use an ethernet cable for my PC. I do not have WIFI.

Thank you

Hi,

Thanks for using the HP Support Community. No, the printer does not come with Ethernet port:

Alternatively, you can use an USB cable, but need to purchase it separately as it does not come in box.

 

Thanks.

Does the printer have a port for a USB cable? I don't see where I can plug it in.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

The USB port is to the right of the power port (where the power cable is inserted)

Hope that helps!

Once I connect the printer to the PC with the USB cable, will it have instructions to set it up or will all the features already be available?

Thank You
