Mine is with an iMac.   Everything works as it should but when I return my envy 4520 after a few days will not connect with my iMac.   They are connected by a cable - not wireless.

Re: HP ENVY 4520 connection issues


Welcome to HP Forums, 

This is a great place to get support, find answers and tips to your technical queries.


To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:

Could you please help me with the Exact operating system of your iMac?

How is the printer connected? (Wired/wireless)

Do you have any antivirus software installed on your Mac?

Do you have a guest network enabled on your WiFi router?

Approximately how far is the printer located from the WiFi router?


Could you check for WiFi interference and also perform a ping test using the Mac Network Utility and let me know the results. Use the printer IP address to perform a ping test, the printer IP can be located by touching the wireless icon on the printer display.


update the printer firmware and Mac software:

Assign Manual IP to the printer

2) Look for IP address from the Network configuration page.
