Printer not found

HP Recommended
Envy 4520 All-in-one
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello all.

I’ve  come on to ask for support as the Samaritans is engaged.

I have a envy 4520 all-in-one printer. It’s been running perfectly well for a couple of years, no problems.

Yesterday I was unable to print from my Acer laptop. 
I’ve tried every fix suggested by PrintDoctor and it still will not print.

For information it will print from multiple other devices ie: iPad, iPhones etc.

I get a message as this photo2B1B35D4-ED1E-4C2A-B156-409F73115D10.jpeg

I’ve also tried to print from my wife’s laptop, both using Windows 10 but that doesn’t work either.

This driving me nuts (as Peter Kay would say)

 

Please, please help me if you can. I’m at my wits end with it.

Kind regards and a Happy New Year.

David

 Hi @davidwm1,

 

I'd like to help!

 

Try the below suggestions -

 

Restart the computer, printer, and router

To resolve many connectivity issues, restart the computer, printer, and router.

NOTE: 

The following steps temporarily disconnect network and Internet connections, and require restarting your computer. Complete any tasks or downloads in progress before you continue.

  1. Turn off the router by pressing the power button or disconnecting the power cord.

  2. Turn off the printer.

  3. Close all running programs on your computer, and then shut down the computer.

  4. Press the power button or reconnect the power cord to the router, and then wait for the Internet activity light to display a normal connected status.

  5. Turn on the printer.

  6. Turn on the computer.

 Use HP Print and Scan Doctor to check connectivity

Download a special version of HP Print and Scan Doctor specifically created to help with printer offline conditions.

  1. Download HP Print and Scan Doctor.
  2. Run HPPSdr.exe from the download location on your computer.
  3. Once HP Print and Scan Doctor opens, click Start, and then select your printer.
    • If your printer in not in the list, turn it off and on, and then click Retry.
    • If there is a connection problem, follow the instructions in HP Print and Scan Doctor.
  4. If a screen prompts you to turn on printer updates, click Yes.
  5. If a screen prompts you to make your printer the default printer, click Yes.
