HP Envy 4524 won't print after Windows 10 update

HP Recommended
Lenovo Yoga Slim 7
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi there, 

 

I am wondering if anyone can help. My HP Envy 4524 is fully connected to WiFi, is being recognised by my laptop and I have downloaded drivers avalible from the HP website including the HP Smart App. However when I try to print anything at all, I just get an error message saying it could not print and all it says in my print queue is 'error'. It is a Windows 10 laptop which I have previously updated. I have tried several fixes including uninstalling and reinstalling software/drivers etc. 

 

Thanks

 Hi @HollyAmanda,

 

I'd like to help!

 

Try the below suggestions-

 

 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.

Set a manual IP-

 

To set a manual IP and try the steps below -

 

--->Touch on the wifi icon ((i)) on the printer, and take down the IP address 

--->Open a web browser (ex Chrome or Mozilla) and type in the printer's IP

--->then go to network ---> general ---> network protocols ---> select IPV4 only-->apply 

--->go to wireless ---> wireless 802.11---> select manual ip ---> apply

--->Enter 8.8.8.8 for the first DNS and 8.8.4.4 for the second DNS.  

--->then go to settings on the main ews page --> power management ---> select sleep mode to max 15min

 

 Connect the printer to TCP/IP port

 

 --->Touch on the wifi icon ((i)) on the printer, and take down the IP address 

a. Click Start/Devices and Printers.  Right-click on your HP Printer.  Select Printer Properties.  Select the Ports tab at the top.

b.    Select Add Port.  Select Standard TCP/IP Port.  Select New Port.

c.    Follow the Add Port Wizard.  Under Printer Name or IP Address, .  Example:  192.168.1.15.  The IP address will be copied under Port Name.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
