Color LaserJet Pro M277c6 MFP: MFP M277c6 unable to connect with a wired connection

Just bought and installed M277c6.  It connects and can communicate via USB and wireless networks.  However it does not work via the WIRED ethernet connection, I need to get this printer works on the WIRED network.

That's what I see...

Power on the M277c6 and I see the link on the router port light will blink twice.  However after that the M277c6 has finished loading, the link light goes out and when I print the summary of network - the printer think that the "cable is not connected", but it is connected.

I tried the following:

1 tried 3 different network CAT 5 cables (I checked all 3 cables work as I can use them with my office to get on the internet)

2 tried 4 different ports ethernet on the router (I checked that all router 4 ports work as I can use them with my office to get on the internet)

3 restarted the router, printer and computer several times

I also installed the latest firmware from the HP for the M277c6 site and have the latest version of the software on my computer to Win7 64-bit.


1. how to activate the WIRED port that is enabled on the M277c6?

2. How can I get M277c6 to communicate via ethernet WIRED?

Appreciate pointers and help...  I also tried to work with HP CAT and both times they took control at distance of my deskop, but have been unable to solve the problems.  Unfortunately, they have disconnected cat, whenever I asked how to get the work of WIRED connection as they both wanted to ONLY get my wireless to work.

Thank you!


First thing to try is to reset back to factory defaults. In no joy, I suspect that the Ethernet port is defective in the printer.

  • HP Color LaserJet Pro M177 MFP: HP Color LaserJet not able to connect to connected HP


    I try to activate my printer (HP Color LaserJet M177fw MFP Pro) ePrint and much more, but I'm not able to do it cause connection problem, I guess.

    When I'm trying to 'print the information sheet', for example, the printer is not able to connect (stay on 'Sign in' loop indefinitely).

    My printer is less than a Vodafone EasyBox router, with firewall disabled and no specific barriers defined by me.

    Should I set some port forwarding (even if they should apply to ignore the firewall, when turned on) or any other specific configuration in the router?

    the same connection problem, of course, it happens when I do touch printer and console web administration, of course.

    In addition, I'll let you know that my router is not blocking access, for example, to-from the web (i.e. I am able to manage my NAS from the outside, since he admitted to a DDNS) and other local devices

    I alreay set and as DNS pri/sec and had an output of cycle after the series of DNS.

    My printer also has a static IP address (defined by the DHCP protocol, based on the MAC address), so not a problem, I think.

    Thanks in advance for your help,


    Hi Lorenzo,.

    To enable Web Services fumctionality, you'll need to install the latest firmware on your printer (version 20160525)

    You can locate the current version of your printer by selecting configuration > reports > Page of Configuration, the firmware version is listed under the information section on the printer.

    Updated the firmware on Linux by following these steps, but I don't know if the latest firmware is available for Linux or not, try:

    If the latest firmware is not available for linux, temporarily install the printer on a Windows PC or a my and install the latest firmware:

    Hi @pisca46,

    Thank you for joining the HP Forums!

    I understand that there is no drivers for your HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M277dw on Mac OS X 10.12 Sierra. I am pleased to see that for you!

    You are right that there are currently no drivers available at this time. In the meantime, I suggest trying the rest of this guide, of install a printer Mac driver by using Apple Software Updateand then try using the Apple Image Capture.

    Otherwise, all we can do is wait for the drivers and software provision, or plan to use an older version of Mac OS X.

  • Color LaserJet Pro M177fw MFP: HP Color LaserJet Pro M177fw MFP is not not color copy

    Hello, I have a HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw, when I try to copy in color mode, the printer gives me the newspaper (on the LCD screen), color copy is limited. I did not have a password for the printer. and this error is seen when you use both scanner feeder and flat bed.

    I appreciate your comments and thank you in advance for your help


    The gesture would be to try to restore the default settings of the control panel of the printer.  Conflicting configurations on disabling color copies would be destroyed and normal again.  Resets are normally under the admin menu or the control panel service.

  • Color Laserjet Pro M476dw MFP: HP Color Laserjet MFP printing problems M476dw Pro

    Only, we installed our printer HP Color Laserjet Pro MFP M476dw yesterday and I noticed once it is published a PCL XL Error report instead of what I was printing.  I don't think that anything from him, but today, it happens almost all the time.  I tried to find possible solutions and stumbled upon everyone says to disable AVG...  We do not use AVG, we use MSE.  Is it a driver problem or else?  Any help would be appreciated.  Nothing more annoying than to try to use a new printer and it is not working properly.

    I went to the site HP dl had the HP Universal 5 driver and installed it and now it's printing even more crazy.  I enclose a photo of what he does.  It is not fair to Quickbooks, it does also in PDF, Word, and Outlook.

    I shouldn't have as many problems with ANY NEW MACHINE!

    The trainer would be relatively easy to replace, from what I've read your machine should be guaranteed if you need to contact HP support and they can send you another.

    You might even be able to find an authorized service provider who will come out and fix it.

    And if its brand new and you bought it in a store to resume.

  • Color LaserJet Pro CM1415fn MFP - professional printer with just a feeder?

    I'm confused. He is a professional office color printer - which means that a number of print media will be used to print on a daily basis.

    And after buying this printer at Amazon, I discovered that there not a manual feed tray and one paper tray.

    I have print of legal documents - copy desk in our records, on cheap paper, a paper of good quality to the client and an envelope.

    So I have to print a simple letter to remove and replace the Board THREE TIMES. This is not good.

    My simple Canon printer internal, or any other printer I've seen ALL have manual power option.

    QUESTION: could you please let me know if there is an attachment to this printer that would allow me to print manually, or should I send the printer to the shop?

    No, this printer does not have an add on the extra add envelope feeder on the plates as accessories.

    So, I opened this file and only found this:

    • In the devices folder and printers, click with the right button on your LaserJet Pro MFP M176n and left click on printer properties
    • Left click on the Advanced tab
    • Left-click on new driver
    • When the new window driver opens just hit 'next' until you see a list of manufacturers on the left and a list of printers on the right.
    • Click the "disk" button at the bottom right
    • When the "Browse" window opens, simply right click in the path of the file bar and select "Paste" to paste the path of the file that we copied earlier. Click OK.
