Deskjet 2660 error state

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm getting increasingly frustrated by my 2660 injet failing to print. According to HP Smart the thing is "ready" but when I go to print the unit claims to be in error mode. Before I dump the thing and switch manufacturers, does anyone have any idea why I might be encountering this issue? I've restarted several times, checked the door and carried out all other suggested checks but nothing is working.

Welcome to the HP support community.

 

Use HP Print and Scan Doctor to check connectivity

Download HP Print and Scan Doctor.

  1. Run HPPSdr.exe from the download location on your computer.

  2. Once HP Print and Scan Doctor opens, click Start, and then select your printer.

    • If your printer is 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.

  3. If a screen prompts you to turn on printer updates, click Yes.

  4. If a screen prompts you to make your printer the default printer, click Yes.

  5. Try to print.

Assign a manual IP address and that should fix the issue.

  1. On the printer's control panel, press the Wireless button  and the Information button  at the same time.

    Both a Network Configuration Page and a Wireless Network Test Report print.

Setting a Static IP Address

Once you know your printer’s IP address, entering it is pretty easy. Here’s what you do:

HP Printer Static IP Address

  1. Run your Web browser.
  2. In the Web browser’s address bar, type the IP address of your printer and press Enter. Assuming you entered the right address, the HP printer control panel should appear.
  3. Click the Networking tab.
  4. Under Connections, click Wireless.
  5. Under IP Address Configuration, click Manual IP.
  6. Enter the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway in the appropriate boxes.
  7. Click Apply.

Cheers.
