  • HP Envy Printer 4500: HP Envy 4500 printer

    I'm an overlay in red when I print pictures in color on photo paper.  I made diagnostic tests and have been informed that the printer/scanner is correct.  The problem started when I ran downstairs on the ink.  I changed the black and color cartridges, but still not the Red overlay.  Can you help me?

    Thank you sincerely for your help.  I ran the tools and has obtained reports showing that the blue color is not printing.  Does that mean I have a faulty color cartridge and must return it?  The overlay happened before I put in the new cartridge, too.  I only use HP photo paper products.  I have another HP printer that prints without the overlay isn't the picture or photo paper.

  • HP Envy printer 4500: poor/no wifi connection - I can't print wireless


    I recently moved into the new home of the University, and the wifi reception is very low.

    When I go to "Wireless Details" on my printer, it said no "detected" - I assume that given the weak wifi signal in my room, my printer just will not come back on any signal and so I won't be able to print wireless? If this is the case, is there not an option for me to print using a cable any?

    However, when I go to "Wireless Setup Wizard", the my wifi SSD hard drive is launched as an option/is detected, but when I click on it to try to connect, it says ' unable to connect to the network. The type of authentication or encryption is not supported "."

    I just want to be able to set up my wireless printing. If no reception is the issue, then how can I go about printing without having to use wifi?

    Your school uses authentication Enterprise that do not support home printers. Yes, you can use a printer USB cable and connect to your computer very well. Like this one:

    (a) double-click the desktop printer icon.
    (b) click on set preferences.
    (c) click on advanced.
    d select "Black ink" only for printing in grayscale options.
    e click Ok /apply .

    Note: Same black ink, printer still uses only a smal amount of color inks, specially during the warm-up of the process.

  • HP Envy printer 4500: don't know what mean icons for ink levels

    When I want to check my ink level, what happens with two different icons for which, I suppose, is the ink cartridges. It has an oval icon below it, and the other which seems to be a symbol of infinity. I'm not sure what each represents. Once again I have to assume one is for black in color. I have searched online for an answer, but all the 'manual' says is to check level, which does not mean the icons. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    The oval symbol for the color cartridge, the symbol of the butterfly for the black cartridge as indicated in the third option of the document here.

  • HP envy printer range: HP envy with Win7 Remote Desktop RDP printing problem


    I have a printer HP envy 5530 works well for my laptop.

    When I connect to my Win7 Remote Desktop Server (on which HP envy drivers are also installed) and try printing locally on my HP local printer, it does not work.

    When I look at my local mobile print queue, I see two copies of 'Remote Desktop redirected Printer Doc' contained in the queue. One of the queue said copies and then print. Impression size document in the print queue shows 4 KB that is abnormally low, then the missing documents from the print queue, but are not printed on the printer.

    Note that I have no problem with the same laptop, same Remote Desktop server, but using a different printer (not HP).

    I saw that on several forums (including this one), many users have this same problem but I've never seen a valid response that solves this problem with RDP.

    Any idea?

    Thank you

    I solved the problem by creating a new printer on the local computer and configure the port to the Standard TCP/IP port with the IP address of the printer and the HP Deskjet 6940 driver use. Deskjet 5500 driver may work as well.

    The problem is with the specific Envy 5530 driver.
