    Hello destiny.

    • What is the brand and model of the printer?

    Try the following and see if it helps.

    Method 1: Disable Antivirus

    If you have installed any third party such as antivirus or firewall security software, I would say you temporarily disable and check if it works.

    Disable the anti-virus software


    Important note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attack.

    Method 2: Update the drivers for your printer.

    For more information, see these links:

    Updated a hardware driver that is not working properly:
    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/update-a-driver-for-hardware-that-isn ' t-work correctly

    Find and install printer drivers

    Method 3: Restart the print spooler service.

    You must be logged on as administrator to perform these steps.
    a. open administrative tools by clicking the Start button, then Control Panel. In the search box, type administrative tools, and then click Administrative Tools.
    b. double-click on Services.  If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    c. right-click the print spooler service and then click Properties.
    d. on the general tab, next to startup type, make sure that automatic is selected.
    e. If the service is not already running, under Service status, click Start and then click OK.  If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation,
    type the password or provide confirmation.

    If nothing works, then manually add the printer to the local port and check.

    Method 4: Manually add the printer to the local port.

    a. go to control panel and click on devices and printers.
    b. click Add a printer, and then select Add a local printer. Click on create a new port. The default value in the drop-down list is Local Port. Don't change that.
    c. click Next.
    A dialog box appears for you request that you enter a port name. Type the name of \\computer name\printer.
    d. type your user name and the name of the printer (name \\PC\printer)
    e. click ok and exit.

  • HP Officejet 4620: Printer is in"error" and will not print, even though the computer says that it is "connected".

    My printer recently started telling me it was in a State of 'error' and could not print my documents.  Sometimes I could turn off the printer market and all that was trying to print would then print, if documents or Quicken checks.  Now I can't print from the computer at all, or it will print checks from Quicken even if I turn the printer power off and power on.  The HP Web site indicates that it is connected.  It is the second computer from HP Officejet 4620 of the original that I bought.  The first has a problem that has been covered by the warranty, and this one doesn't seem to be much better.

    Hi @Janilynn,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I read your post and wanted to help.

    I understand that the printer does not print when the computer shows that it is connected.  Please run the print and scan the doctor.

    I would like to know if it solved the problem or gives you an error message.

  • HP 4650: HP 4650 black print cartridge (63 HP) will not be printed

    In February 2016, I bought a new HP 4650 printer for a seasonal vacation home and it worked perfectly during the 3 months we were there. We returned home in July 2016 of holiday and the 63 HP black cartridge would not work and a new one has been purchased and installed. We have used the printer in just 2 weeks and not very well. Now in October 2016, we go home and again once the printer will not print black cartridge HP 63 is shown as almost empty of ink, which, after only 2 weeks of light, use in July.

    Why don't the 63 HP black print now even if it shows is not empty no ink? And why the cartridge last a very short time, two weeks of very clear use in this case?

    What is happening is that the ink print heads are drying up a lack of use.

  • Kodak ESP 3200 printer stops spool error and will not print. Tried many times from print print spooler. Following other instructions as starting all over. Nothing seems to work. Help

    This means that the heap corruption took place.

    Try installing the latest for your Kodak printer driver.

    If this doesn't fix it, please download this reg from my SkyDrive file:

    When an application crashes, Windows Error Reporting Service [1] creates a dmp under C:\Localdumps. Please download the dump (zip it first) to your public Skydrive folder [2] and post the link here. I take a look at the discharge with the debugger, maybe that I can see the cause.

  • Envy4500: Computer says printer is offline and will not print, but it's online

    I jumped through all the hoops of tech and there seems to be no perfect solution to this problem. However, can I change my settings wireless direct on with security on without security on Off, and at any time, I am doing this, work in Quebec will begin. But I have to do it almost everytime I have print something. I need to scan from my remote IO. Let me know if HP has a better solution. Obviously, the computer is not properly talk to the printer. I started having this problem after Windows 10, but yet curiously, so I don't think it's a matter of Windows.


    Thank you for using the HP Forums.

    You can try this:

    Creating a TCP IP port

    1. print a Configuration Page to get the printer IPv4 address (you can also tap on the icon wireless on the front panel of your printer to obtain the IP address)
    2. on your PC, go to the Panel control, devices and printers, right-click the printer and on the left, click printer properties, select the Ports tab.
    3. click Add Port, select the Port TCP/IP Standard, then New Port and follow the instructions in the wizard.
    4. Enter the IP address of the printer.

    Note that you can ALWAYS go back to the original port the HP software installed by selecting the HP port on the Ports tab (in the properties of the printer)

    Hope that helps!

    Hey @dennisc10,

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support!

    I understand that you have some problems with an error light on your PSC 1350 all-in-one printer. I can help you with that.

    To start, make sure that the printer is plugged directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector. Once done, this document explains How to solve the blinking lights on the printer.

    If after following the above you still can not clear the error, the printer needs to be replaced. You can contact the HP Support by clicking on this link and fill out the form below to discuss the options based on your warranty.

    Please let me know the results after following the above. If you are able to solve the problem or reach some resolution, click on accept solution. If you appreciate my help, please click on the thumbs up icon. The two icons are below this post.

  • HP psc2100 series all-in-one: printer was working fine, all of a sudden its impasse on copy and will not be printed said export error

    computer printing problem saying "Error exporting" and printer saying just 1 copy.  I tried troubleshooting on mine, doesn't have the verified maintenance on the printer, but still saying error. Help, please!

    Hi @kelley22,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I see that your HP PSC 2100 printer is stuck on copy and will not be printed on Windows 8. I'm happy to help you!

    The first step, I would like to recommend is a hard reset. Please see this message, How to perform a hard reset, by @Rich1. It is very important that the power cable from the printer is plugged directly into the wall outlet, not a surge protector. See this article, questions when it is connected to an uninterruptible power supply/Strip/surge protector power, for more information. This is true for printers and ink jet.

    Once this step is finished, please try to print a self-test report, to check the printer hardware is fully functional.

    To print a self-test report, follow these steps:

    • On the product control panel, press Setup.
      The installation menu appears.
    • Press the right arrow ( ) until print report displays and then press OK. The menu print report appears.
    • Press the right arrow ( ) until the self-assessment report and press OK. The self-test report prints.

    If the test report print, then on the computer, please try our HP print and Scan Doctorand let me know what happens!

    Hope this helps and have a great day!
