Printer 3830 not found in computer

Lenovo
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I'm at my wits end. I just bought a HP OJ 3830 All in one & cannot get the software to download fully & the printer does not show up in my computer at all for the wizard to work. It should not be this hard even for an old widow to do...lol. Worse thing is I talked a friend into getting the same one so now I feel even more guilty. There are no phone numbers to call anymore. Any ideas anyone could share?

@Debinc52, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

Update the printer firmware

Download available firmware updates from the HP website

With the printer on and connected to the computer, go to HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, and then identify your printer. Look for and install any available firmware updates.

For more information, go to Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware.

 

Also, I recommend you delete the driver and root level and retry, follow the steps below: 

  

1) In Windows, search for and open Programs and features 

2) Select your HP Printer 

3) Select Uninstall 

4) In Windows, search for and open Devices and printers 

5) In the Devices and Printers windows look for your HP printer. If you see it listed right-click on it and choose ‘Delete’ or ‘Remove Device’ 

6) Open up the run command with the “Windows key + R” key combo. 

7) Type printui.exe /s and click Ok. (Note: there is a space in between “printui.exe”

😎 Click on the “Drivers” tab 

9) Look for HP Printer driver. If you see it Click on it and click Remove at the bottom 

10) Select Ok 

11) Select Apply and Ok on the Print Server Properties windows 

12) Close Devices and Printers.

 

Download and install the full-featured software from here.

 

Keep me posted.
