Cannot find the printer HP Deskjet 3055 has wireless

Hi bought this printer and went through the set up disc. The printer is connected and has the right signal to our home network and the laptop also connects wirelessley to the internet just fine. The laptop cannot find the printer - I tried all the suggestions and put the IP address for internet search and it will not. I can't understand. Also tried to install on the MAC laptop and still only goes up to now and then are unable to communicate with each other. Please can I have some advice.

Oh, wait a minute--I just got it working by stopping laptop, printer and disconnect the wireless router and all start back them up again. Then to try to make it work on the MAC laptop - what this space! Thanks for the help.

  • P1102w - cannot find the printer


    I'm unable to print using a wireless connection.

    the printer is p1102w.

    operating system is MAC OS 10.10 Yosemite

    Whenever I try to print something I get "printer is not connected / cannot find the printer" message.

    I tried the solutions on your support site, but nothing helped.

    For sure, printer is connected to the same network as the computer. I see it on the print configuration page and I can connect to its IP address via a web browser (but I can't use web services).

    All software and drivers are up to date. Update Apple is nothing new to me. Niether have your site.

    I tried to move the printer closer and further away from router. No results.

    No web proxy is related to my network.

    To make this work, I have to remove the printer from my system, reinstall it using the USB cable, and then add it again via wi - fi.

    But some time the problem reappears.

    It's really frustrating. Help, please.

    Hi @xopot ,

    I see that you have problems printing via wireless network. I would like to help you today.

    Since you can access the printer embedded Web server, the printer would have a valid IP address. Most likely, it has something to do with the software that the printer uses.

    Fix permissions of the drive on the Mac:

    Close all applications.

    In the Apple menu, click OK, click Applications, and then click utilities.

    Double-click disk utility.

    Highlight your hard drive / partition on the left.

    Click on check and then repair disk permissions.

    Restart the computer...

    Reset the printing system:

    Note: This will remove all printers in the print and Fax/Scan, any printer deleted can be re-added later by clicking the sign plus (+) symbol.

    Click on the Apple icon and then click on System Preferences.

    Click on Printers & Scanners.

    Make a right click (or Ctrl + click) in the left white side panel, and then click Reset printing system.

    Click OK to confirm the reset.

    Type the name and the correct password.

    Click OK to reset the printing system.

    Then click on the sign to add the driver, highlight the printer +. (you may need to click the drop down menu to select the name of the printer) Then click the Add button.

    Configure a static IP address for the printer.

    The printer is not found during Installation wireless.

    Do not take into account the title. Select the Solution 4: assign your printer a static IP address.

    If you need help, let me know.

    Have a great day!
    Thank you.

  • Acrobat cannot find the printer/scanner

    I use a Brother DCP-J4110DW all in one printer/scanner and adobe acrobat 8 professional. Last week, I could open adobe and click on create PDF from a scanner, and then select my printer/scanner and I go. Now - no reason apparent, adobe cannot find my printer/scanner in the menu dropdown. There is nothing in there! I have not changed the settings or anything, in fact the only thing that has changed is a new modem/router and an update of AVG anti-virus. I tried to reinstall my printer/scanner and I have acrobat repair re-installed but nothing has helped. Please, please can someone shed light on the case...

  • Mac OS 10.5 Hello cannot find the printer driver for P1606dn connected via a wired network.

    I tried to connect my HP Laserjet Pro P1606dn to my PowerMac G5 running Mac OS 10.5.8.  I have connected the priner to my LAN via the Ethernet cables and Switch 8 port NetGear.  I then properly installed printer driver from the CD provided on the Mac and went into system preferences / Print & Fax to add the printer to the list of the connected printers.  Click on the button «+»  The HP P106dn was listed in the table (kind = Hello).

    I chose this entry in the table, and the dialog box immediately went into action: the pullodwn "to Print using" listed the message 'Please select a printer or driver model' greyed and a spinning wheel called 'Search for new drivers' appeared underneath.  The dialog box search but never find the printer driver (I waited for 20 minutes without success).  I installed some other HP printers in this way on this machine with no problems, for example, HP Color Laserjet 2605dn.  Why this method does not work with this printer?

    I was able to connect to this printer with other (Intel) Macs in my house through this arrangement of LAN.  Is the printer driver for the Intel Macs only?

    I disconnected the printer from the local network and connected directly to my Mac with a USB cable.  The same process, and I was able to connect to this printer.  Successfully print a document page.  Although it gives me a work-around for Mac G5, I need to share this printer with other Macs in my household.

    I went on the HP download site and downloaded the latest driver for this printer, re-installed the printer driver on Mac and repeat the steps for the arrangement of LAN (above) complete the connection via the Print & Fax dialog box.  The result was the same: spinning wheel looking for a printer driver are not.

    I don't know what else to do, or why this facility will not work.  I would much appreciate it if someone could give an explanation for this or any suggestions as to what can be done?


    I'm sorry to get back to you on this so late.  I was OOT Sunday all day.

    Ok. So, here is what happened.  As I mentioned at the end of my last post, I was in the process of resetting my printing system, repair disk permissions, then restarting.   Reset the printing system wiped out all my printers in the "Printers" pane in the "Print & Fax" system preferences dialog window  I moved forward and fix permissions of the drive on my system disk.  A number of authorities have been repaired, but nothing that I could decipher impression related ro.  Finally, I restarted my Mac and went directly to the dialog box print & Telec.

    As the printers pane was still empty, I'm gone before adding the simplest of my printers (LaserWriter 360 connected via AppleTalk) who has always been correctly added to the list printers in the past.  No chance!  WAITED a few minutes everything is was "Looking for new drivers.".  I tried the Color Laserjet 2605dn.  No luck.  Then the Laserjet P1606dn.  No luck.

    Thus, this way of solution did not work, and now I was without any driver associated with one of my connected printers.  I decided that I had no choice to rebuild the operating system.  I started my DVD of Installation OS 10.5.4 to rebuild my system (without reformatting my HARD drive).  Once which was finished, I've immediately went to the Print & Fax dialog box and tried to add in each of my printers.  In a few seconds the LaserWriter was added successfully, then the HP Color Laserjet 2605dn, and FINALLY, the Laserjet P1606dn.  Thus, it appeared that my upgrade to OS 10.5.8 was at the origin of the problem.

    I proceed with Sofware Update to restore the computer to OS 10.5.8 and again once, went to the dialog box Print & Fax to experiment with the addition of each of the printers again.  Stopping before the acceptance of each 'Add', I could find quickly and successfully the drivers for each of the connected printers.  So, it doesn't seem to be a problem with OS 10.5.8 find printer drivers.

    After reflection, I concluded that the problem must have appeared during the upgrade to OS 10.4.11 OS 10.5.4, but it remained hidden until I tried to add these new printers to the list of printers.

    I appreciate the reference to the last download Laserjet full feature software.   Since I was able to solve the problem without it, I mind not do the download.

    I want to thank you for patiently stay with me during the last two weeks, your advice and comments.  Just having someone to "talk" about it, it was reassuring and useful that I went along to apply each suggestion to the problem.  I tried to solve this problem several times on my own before that, the search of the forums, and I hesitated to participate actively – to reach out.  I'm feeling very different about it now.  Once again, thanks a lot.

  • OfficeJet Pro L7590 cannot find the printer in the basic facilities and full.

    The HP solution center software has stopped working recently with my Officejet Pro L7590. The printer is connected to a wired network.  I uninstalled the software, downloaded the latest software to install driver from  The operating system is XP. I tried to install the base and full versions of the software several times, do a full uninstall/scrub every time.  No package can find the printer.  I ran the residential network Diagnostic tool and it can find the IP address of the printer very well.  I can access the web page to printer very well.  I've successfully installed the drivers of the company and I am now able to print.  I then tried to reinstall the full version, and it would still not find the printer.  Another pc on the network is the center of Solution HP software installed and communicates very well with the printer. I tried to disable firewall Eset Nod 32 during the install and no change.  I deleted all the entries in the registry I can find for HP, but still can not get the full version of the installation of the driver to see the printer.

    What else can I try to succesfully reinstall the driver package?

    Sorry, you gave the wrong way...

    First of all if you still have Enterprise installed download and important work!

    1. uninstall all other instances of 8.3 or previous.  My recommendation would be to uninstall all software printer hp through Windows Add/Remove Programs if nothing else to start with a base line.

    2. download the Utlities "HP Software Removal Utility - IT professional use only" (don't worry, this stand-a-alone also works on computers). File name: OLProL7X00_Scrubber_8.exe

    3. Once you unpack the latter you will have a new window and down there are 5 files, you must run one at a time in this order.  Uninstall.bat, Unistall_L1.bat, Unistall_L2.bat, Unistall_L3.bat, Unistall_L4.  Make sure that each of them is complete before you begin the following.  Some of them open and close Windows Installer UN and there is a gap of about 10-15 seconds.  Some of them require you to press any key to close the window on the finish.

    4 REBOOT

    5 download if you don't have not already ch from the Solution of Driver - company it, basic features of HP software/driver-IT Professional use only (again it is ok, you want your scanner, printer, monitor, and HP Solutions software to work once again don't you?).

    6 install the filename Business Solution: OJProL7X00_enu_Enterprise_7.exe if you uninstalled all this will install without a hitch, but you may need to input manually by selecting the IP method, enter the IP address of the printer. It's where he then found my network printer, and he continued the installation.  Mine found via the method of IP but not automatic.  Finish the installation and give your computer a few minutes to finish in the bottom.

    7 reset.

    8. If you have a program that uses a scanner TWAIN as Adobe Professional, CorelDraw, etc. test your scanner.  Mine works now.  Leave the test program,

    9 download new version 8.3 software, the full version of all the 311meg of it!

    10. install this software 8.3.  You can get an error (I did) just do not send the report, but the key is the continuous software to install.  What the problem is that the software company alreadly installed a files "hp? 5. ?? "and the cant on write.  The amount of the fine. Now when you get to the point where he asks how you connect your printer, USB or wired/wireless select Wired and click OK.  This will bring you to a new screen that is simular to the last, but to the bottom is a checkbox with "continue with the installation, I'll add the material later.  Put a check mark in the box and click Next.

    Surprise! the Setup will continue installing all recommended software and complete.  Still finished once that there is still things going on in the background! then give him a few minutes to complete!

    11 restart and give a little time and you will see that the screen is the network printer and all software programs now work.

    12. the only thing I don't understand is this: the old software used to create printer drivers 2, one for the printing of paper and other fax directly in applications.  The fax printer driver is no installation/configuration in this method, but I think that the Technical Support HP can guide you through this set up if necessary.  I'll do that tomorrow as it was something that I never thought or missed until it didn't work!

    I hope this helps! It did for me!


  • Computer cannot find the printer on the network

    I have a Photosmart D110A and use a router Airport Extreme to print from my PC and iPad.  Until a few days ago, it worked fine but now neither my iPad or PC can find the printer on the network.  When I run the test report of network on the printer, it shows that everything is fine and dandy.  No the guided HP solutions even to get close to solving this riddle... it seems that any questions they discuss involve the printer will not connect to the network.

    OK, so they are both on the network of comments.  Comments network does not allow for communication between devices.

    Open Airport utility, select your airport and click installation manual.  Access to the Internet zone, then DHCP.  What are the two structures IP DHCP for your two airport networks (invited and regular).

    For example, mine is 10.0.1.X for the ordinary and 17.16.42.X for my network of comments.
