Hi @CissyC,


I'd like to help!


Try updating mac and printer firmware


To update the printer's firmware, refer - HP Printers - Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware 

 To update Mac, try these steps - How to update the software on your Mac


Uninstall HP Easy Start

  • Click on Spotlight icon and type HP Uninstaller or by opening HP Easy Start.
  • Click on Continue to uninstall the software.
  • When prompted for Password, type in your system password
  • You can also uninstall by opening HP Easy Start.


 Download HP Easy Start and install the printer.

You can also install the HP Smart App and print and scan using the app.


You may also add the AirPrint printer to the Mac printer queue

Confirm you are using Air Print by adding the printer in System Preferences.

  1. Click the Apple menu, click System Preferences, and then click Print & Scan or Printers & Scanners.
