I feel my printer has a mind of its own. It responds to printing commands inconsistently
a) When I send a document to the printer it will print. And I send another document within a few minutes it will do nothing.
Sometimes the queue will show the first document listed with Status as 'Printing'. Under the 'Size' will be just a bit lesser than the total size. However the document is already printed and in my hand. The 2nd document is still in the queue. I have waited for hours for the status of the 1st document to change. Sometimes I have cancelled the print job which takes amazingly long time for it to actually get cancelled. After cancellation the 2nd document will not start automatically. Using Resume etc will not do anything. After some 15-20 mins my laptop will show an error message: "Error printing ...". And promptly the document will start printing.
b) When I send a document to the printer for the first time it will not print at all. I will check the queue and it will display as Printing, but the printer is doing nothing. No change for 15-20 mins. I will restart the printer. Then it will start printing.
c) I have sent a document for printing for the first time. No printing for quite a while. I have given up and forgotten about the printing. A few hours later it will suddenly start on its own and print that document (I have an Alexa that behaves similarly sometimes when it will glow blue and say it cannot find what I am looking, despite the whole house being quiet).
d) I downloaded the HP Print & Scan Doctor and troubleshot. It says everything is fine and prints test page. I send a document for printing immediately and sometimes it prints and sometimes it does not.
I am not sure I should re-install the drivers etc. On the Devices and Printers in Windows I have deleted and found the printer multiple times.
I have a Windows 10 connected wirelessly through which I manage the printer. The printer is connected wirelessly to the same network. Though note that the printer is connected to the regular network while all the other devices in the house are connected to the 5G network.
