Re: my printer will not print the document HP photosmart plus B210

Hi, are you still having trouble printing from your printer? If so can you tell me a little more about the problem e.g. have you ever been able to get it to work, are you trying to print using the ePrint service (either print apps or by sending files to your printer's e-mail address)?

Re: my printer will not print the document HP photosmart plus B210

No it still will not print.  THe document is hung up in the spooler.  The only thing I can do is delete it.  there is an error too.  It must be a software problem. I don't know what to do.  I don't know how to eprint or find the address of my printer.  I print my stuff at work.

Hi, here is a link to a webpage where you can download diagnostic software tools that can help solve common printer problems HP Print Diagnostic Utility such as documents failing to print and getting stuck in the printer queue.

Re: my printer will not print the document HP photosmart plus B210

I did all the downloads and watched the video.  I gets hung up on finding my printer.  I could not find it and would not quit trying even after half and hour.  I don't know what to do.

Re: my printer will not print the document HP photosmart plus B210

Has your printer ever worked? Are you able to print out a test page from the printer software that should be on your desktop? (see example images below)

Re: my printer will not print the document HP photosmart plus B210

If you can see the printer icon in the Control Panel is there a check mark on the icon like in the image below left? If not then right click on the icon and select Set as default printer. The other thing you can try when right clicking on the icon is to select Printer properties and when the dialog box opens on the General tab click on the Print Test Page button in the bottom right corner (see the image below).

Re: my printer will not print the document HP photosmart plus B210

Has anything changed on your system since the printer last worked e.g.. change of operating system. If not you may want to uninstall the printer software and reinstall the device on your computer. Here is the link to the Photosmart Plus e-All-in-One Printer - B210a support page.

 

I hope this can help you resolve your problem.
