macOS Big Sur 11.2.3 | HP LaserJet P1109w

HP LaserJet P1109w
macOS 11.0 Big Sur

Hello. I can't install HP LaserJet P1109w under macOS Big Sur 11.2.3.

Even if I use HP Easy Install, the software answer is: "download and install the recommended software"!

Theres no such thing on HP Support page...

Can anyone help, please...

Thanks

I'm having the same problem with this new, forced method of installing printer drivers via Hp (very un)Easy Install.  I think it is full of software bugs.  My problem is the software insists that the printer needs paper.  It doesn't.   they need to return to offering individual drivers rather than this bad road tested, everything, software imho!  good luck.

@PedroRamos, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

There is no printer driver available for this model printer on the HP Support site to work on macOS 11.2. However, this model printer is AirPrint compatible. Kindly install the printer using the AirPrint driver.

 

Update the printer firmware

Click here to download and install the latest printer firmware from your Mac.

Click here to know different methods of updating printer firmware.

 

Also, check for any software updates on Mac

Click the Apple icon > About This Mac > Software Update and install any available update.

 

Follow step 2 from this document - Printing with Apple AirPrint

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

There is no other option to install the printer on the Mac apart from AirPrint.

According to the printer specifications, this printer does not support auto-duplex printing. You will have to manually flip the page. For more info on printing on both sides, refer to this document - How to Print on Both Sides of the Paper (Duplex) (Mac)

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

Hello again, Kumar0307, thanks again.

 

1.

It's not true that the only option to install the printer on the Mac is by Airprint.

I've installed this printer lots of times with generic HP drives, using USB.

 

Rigth now i already have it installed by USB but im using the HP Laserjet Pro M12w, 1.1 drivers.

2.

I know that i have to manually flip the page when i print both sides.

The problem is that the Airprint driver doesnt let me print both sides as it should and as USB connection permits.

If the issue persists, I think this issue needs some additional technical assistance that can be better provided through one-on-one interaction or a remote session with our HP Support team.

Please reach out to the HP Technical Support team in your region for further assistance. 

 

Keep me posted for any other assistance.
