Solved!

HP 4650 stopped printing requests sent from the computer

HP Recommended
HP 4650
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Copying and scanning works; printing test pages from within the printer works. But when requesting to print a file from the computer, any file, including a test page, the printer does not print.

I did practically everything suggested, reset, remove, reinstall, you name it.

Print queue says Error printing.

What could be wrong ?

@pasko,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

I reviewed your post and I understand that you are facing issues printing from your computer.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

I recommend you follow the below steps and check if it helps.

 

  1. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer and also unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. 
  2. Remove USB cable, if present. 
  3. Wait for 2-3 minutes, press and hold the power button on your printer for about 30 seconds to remove any additional charge. 
  4. Now plug back the power cable straight to a wall outlet without any surge protector or an extension cord (This is important) and then plug back the power cord to the printer. 
  5. Turn on the printer and wait till warm-up period finishes and the printer is idle.

 

If you continue facing the issue, then root uninstall the printer and then reinstall and check.

 

Here is how it is done.

 

1.) In Windows, search for and open Programs and features

2.) Select your HP Printer

3.) Select Uninstall

4.) In Windows, search for and open Devices and printers

5.) In the Devices and Printers windows look for your HP printer. If you see it listed right-click on it and choose 'Delete' or 'Remove Device'

6.) Open up the run command with the "Windows key + R" key combo.

7.) Type printui.exe /s and click Ok. (Note: there is a space in between “printui.exe” and “/s”)

8.) Click on the "Drivers" tab

9.) Look for HP Printer driver. If you see it Click on it and click Remove at the bottom

10.) Select Ok

11.) Select Apply and Ok on the Print Server Properties windows

12.) Close Devices and Printers

13.) Restart the PC

14.) Download and install the printer software from the below link.

Thank you for your reply. After following these step I discovered to my chagrin that the printer is fine and that it is my laptop Windows 10 that has a problem. I cannot print from it anymore. Ouch
