HP envy 4500: IP address changed

By default my printer comes past in offline mode and the only way I can get it's back online to re - install everything (this is the 7th time).  Recently, I noticed that the IP address has changed and I never changed it.  Is there a way to change the wireless connection without having to reinstall everything.  Anyone happen to know why the IP address also changes.


Hi shorty_tg

Normally when we reboot the wifi, the IP address may vary. And again, this is not consistent.

Having a static IP address on your machine should solve your problem.

The IP address is normally displayed when you click on the wireless / wired network icon located on the top line of the touch screen to your printer.

Kind regards

  • HP envy 4500: direct printing without having to change the wifi to printer

    To print on a HP Envy 4500 from an Air iPad with iOS8, should I switch my network wifi to the printer whenever I want to print something?
    For example through my email, there are several emails, each with an attachment that I I want to print. I choose my network WiFi, open the email attachment, return to wifi-changing the settings of printer-go back to the document and print it. Wait for it to print. To return to the e-mail, I return to settings-wifi-changes in my next email open network. Then go through the process of return to the printer.
    There must be a simpler way to use "direct print", but when I try to print in the document, he says "no printer found AirPrint."
    Thanks in advance.

    Hello CdnCreekers,

    It seems to me that you print to the printer WiFi Direct printing option. There is an easier way...

    To begin with, I would turn off WiFi directly from the front panel of the printer > select direct WiFi, then turn it off.

    I assume you already have your printer connected to your wireless network, if that's the case, then you just need to print from your iPad. The iPad must be on the same network as the printer to use Apple's Airprint wireless.

    WiFi Direct is a great option for guests to use, but you don't need to have it on in order to print wirelessly on your printer.

  • 4500 envy: Envy 4500 will not work after ink change

    I changed the ink cartridge in my HP Envy 4500.  It prints the alignment fine page.  I put on the screen to scan and it repeat me that it is «forever» scanning until I have Cancel.  Then, it is stuck on cancel until I have force a stop down.    I'm ready to take a hammer to this printer.

    Hi @Paulaayn,

    Please go on the HP Forums! I'd be happy to let you save your craving for 4500 sledge-hammering.

    I understand your printer is stuck in a mode of scanning and based on your description, it seems that it is the alignment page that didn't scan. You have the printer connected directly to a wall outlet or is this a surge protector or power bar? Even if you have used a surge protector/power bar this whole time and you feel that this is not the case, please connect to a wall outlet so that we can eliminate the source of energy as the primary cause.   Questions when it is connected to an uninterruptible power supply/Strip/surge protector power

    In this document, you will see, QUESTION: questions or problems may arise when a HP LaserJet printer is connected to a UPS (UPS), a power strip or a surge protector

    ↑ This is not limited to the Laserjet printers.

    I ask because I wonder if the printer does not have enough power to run the task. If you do not have the printer connected directly to a wall jack already, we will perform a hard reset. To do this, leave the printer and unplug the power cable for 1 minute. While it is unplugged, press and hold the power button on the printer for 10-15 seconds to release built his power, then after the minute, plug the printer in.

    Please let me know the results of your efforts, and I'll get back to you. Thank you.

  • HP Envy 4500/Series: Cablelink (Austrian cable service) / installation HP Envy 4500 series problem

    Hi, I have a new HP Envy 4500, and it does not connect to my wireless network. He sees the correct SSID (using WPA - PSK / TKIP or AES), but he will not join the network after providing the WPA key. Printing test results shows a FAILURE on > parameters - without filtering. I don't know if I use MAC filtering on the network, because I don't know how to check this on this modem.

    I am also unable to join using the WPS procedure. I tried with and without a USB connection. I have 5 other wireless devices on the network, which all connect without any problems.

    In addition, I put static IP details on the Panel after reading the HP forum where this problem was stated by setting just the IP address and no subnets. Still no connection

    The printer works via USB ok.

    I got it connected to my neighbors A1s wi - fi network.

    I have a new wireless network to cable and modem put cable in the last week connected to Cablelink. I have a new router Cisco EPC3940. I tried to restart, connection to WPS and wireless USB connected. Reset the printer and modem and tried with and without using a static IP address.

    I tried to reconnect to my neighbors A1 connection - success.

    I tried with USB lead-success

    I tried direct to print without wire-success

    I tried to share wireless USB by using HP software-failure

    I tried the HP PC don't doctor too - no available solutions.

    I have read and tried several fixes on the HP forum-no success

    The fault is clearly my printer connect to my cable modem wireless (or my printer connect to my wi - fi of Cablelink) like all other connection works!

    I posted at the end of a similar position, but did not respond. Help please.


    I finally solved this problem after 2 weeks of trying everything! Based on the above comment from BH, I thought that I had to turn off my radio show from 5 Hz. My new router has prevented to me because of the way Cablelink run their software. However, I finally got access to change it. I disabled 5 Hz. I still have the invalid password! Then, I changed the predefined WPA WPA2. It worked. I turned on my 5 Hz back show, the printer is remained connected. I then changed back to WPA2 and immediately lost connection! I put it to WPA and it connected again! I did NOT change key wireless, he remained at 16 characters, just the level of security! It seems if I want my Envy NEW 4500 with UPDATE drivers on my wireless network, I have to REDUCE my password security, which comes by default with modems cable new with Cisco, and accept the WPA! The strange thing is my old Iphone 4 and my old Apple TV both connected without problem. Therefore more recent Iphone to my wife 5 c and our newest Samsung UHD TV. So why a NEW model of printer is sold in stores right now, not able to work on WPA2? I lost 2 weeks on this issue before the sort it! It works, but I'm not happy! Same HP UK failed to connect after 4 hours on their online chat and remote assistance online! I worked it out myself from the comment by BH! Thanks BH. HP POST PLEASE A REPLY ON THIS THREAD WHEN YOU FINALLY WRITE A SOFTWARE FOR YOUR PRINTER TO WORK ON WPA2. MAYBE YOU CAN EMAIL CISCO IN ORDER TO WORK OUT HOW TO DO THIS BETWEEN YOU.

  • HP Envy 4500: HP Envy 4500 printer problem

    I have a HP Envy 4500 printer which has worked very well for a while. Recently I converted to NBN with a new router and well that the laptop has had no problem with the printer connectitivity. The printer works fine for about 10 days, then do not print. When I use the doctor of printing & scanning HP he passes through the "fix" and finally confirmed that it will be printed internally, but must be uninstalled and installed again. I did it and it installs ok then, (I use the download to be installed on the HP site) and it prints ok again for a while.

    I use the wifi for the laptop and the printer, and even still have the printer close to the router, the printer will print after 10 days. The printer wifi appears connected correctly.

    Why it works for ten days and then do not print unless I uninstall the printer and reinstall?


    Thank you for using the forum.

    Have you tried to see if the IP address of the printer has changed whenyou can not print?

    You go to the front panel and press the 'Wireless', and it will display the IP address.

    Now go to the PC > start > all programs (or all apps to win 10) > HP > HP4500 > IP update

    Run small applications and compare if the IP address on your printer software is the same as on the printer.

    If this isn't the case, it is the reason why it can not print!

    Look at this video, he shows how to create a static IP address, there is a part of the video at the end that uses the "update IP address" address verification tool that has been described above.

    Creating a static IP address by using EWS


    Update the IP address is at 01:41

    You may consider to change the address of your printer to Static if it is what the cause of your problem.

    Let us know.

    I just bought three HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook & HP Envy 4500 ePrinters for members of the family that I am trying to set up.  (I'm new to cloud computing).  Can I scan documents to PDF at the computer (Chromebook) / E-mail of the printer?  If so, how?  When documents arrive on the computer?  If the scan to e-mail is possible on the devices above, can I store several addresses e-mail ePrint in the printer choose?  Thank you!

    Hi eKeith,

    Thanks for shouting it and fast response.    No problem on other issues, it is we are here for.

    1. You will need to manually launch the built-in Web server.  What I've done in the past, it's just mark the ip address of the printer is to click instead of having to manually enter the IP every time. It works best if you set a manual ip address of the printer.  I've included a screenshot.
      1. Click on the "Network" tab in the SAP
      2. Click on 'Network' in the left side menu
      3. Click on 'network address (IP)' in the left side menu
      4. Click 'propose a manual IP address.

  • 4500 envy: Envy 4500 printer not

    So my Envy 4500 printer worked very well on the network for more than a year, but last week we had our wifi router change and since it does not print. Well, it prints, but you must put the printer off, then put it back and it will print only the first document in the queue (it will not print, you must do the same thing) I tried to make my pc and it says that "a document in the queue block printing" or something like that and it removes the document but if you try to reprint it does the same thing thing. It's really annoying to toggle the printer for each document... Thank you


    Thank you for using the forum. You can try the following:

    Please download and run the HP Print and Scan Doctor (PSDR) tool to diagnose and solve your problem

  • HP Envy 4500: Print jobs disappear from the print queue and not print (Windows 7).

    I just bought a HP Envy 4500 printer,

    When you attempt to print from a PC with windows 7 OS home pro (64-bit), the print job appears in the queue and then disappears, but the printer does not print anything.

    Everything else seems to work very well know

    • The printer prints the internal test page
    • The printer does print when you use iPad2
    • The printer does print when you use ePrint
    • The PC recognizes and communicates with the printer (tried with USB connections and wireless)
    • Analysis feature works very well - when initiated from the PC and printer

    I tried

    • uninstalling and reinstalling the software (several times using software from different sources)
    • restart the printer queue service
    • Disabling the firewall
    • running printing HP and doctor Scan
    • following the instructions described here (the question is the same but the different operating system):

    Print jobs disappear from the print queue and print (Windows 8)

    • combinations of all of the above

    Absolutely no joy in any of them, and in spite of more than 2 hours of research on Google and forums search I can't find a solution.

    HP... can you give me a solution or is that goes back to the shop?

    Well I finally worked on the fix myself by trial and error.  I changed the security settings for 'All' and 'Creator owner' to 'Print' and "Administer Documents".  Why on earth they were not automatically allowed as part of the installation, I couldn't really say.

    Hope this helps someone else with a similar problem.

  • HP Envy 4500 will not print computer


    My HP Envy 4500 works perfectly for some time now.  Unfortunately, it stopped printing from my Dell laptop, running Windows7. It scans to the laptop very well.  It copies fine, and it prints from my iPhone fine.

    I've reviewed a ton of messages and tried many things:

    * Uninstall/reinstall wireless (at least 8 times) - via the website https://123.hpconnected.com/activate/woobe/ENVY4500

    * Uninstall/reinstall via USB

    * ran doctor utility printing/scanning (or whatever it's called) and says it all looks very good

    sending a test with a HP tool page is fine, however, the internal test via the tool HP Print page fails

    I'm losing my mind and would be really grateful for the help.

    Thank you!

  • HP Envy 4500: Can't swipe Mac computers

    I am trying to scan something to my computer for school and it keeps send me errors.  I need to fix this ASAP!  My computer is a Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan. My printer is a HP Envy 4500. It keeps giving me these errors.

    Scanner communication cannot be established. Make sure that your device is turned on, check the connection and make sure that your network is working properly. If these conditions are correct, restart the device and try to scan the image.


    HP ENVY 4500 series is currently unavailable. Please check if it is connected and turned on, or try again later.

    He has turned on and connected to my computer and I downloaded the HP and HP Easy Scan utility.

    Hi @ufohouse,

    Thank you for joining the HP Forums!

    I saw your post about how you can not scan computer with your HP Envy 4500 on Mac OS X 10.11. And I'm happy to help you!

    How is the printer connected, wireless or USB?

    To confirm that the hardware of the printer is functional, you are able to make a copy with the glass of the scanner of the printer? Copy of Documents.

    What happens if you try to scan from Apple Image Capture?

    Figure: screenshot Image Apple

    1. Place the document or photo face down on the scanner glass, and then close the scanner cover.

      If your printer has an ADF (ADF), you can use it to scan multi-page documents at the same time. No pictures load in the ADF to not damage the photos and the printer.

    2. Open Finder , click OK in the menu bar, click Applications, and then double-click the Image Capture.

    3. Click on the name of your printer in the devices or shared list.


      If that device software is not installed message appears when you select your printer, click on install, and then follow the instructions to complete the installation.

    4. Click on show details at the bottom of the screen.

      An overview of scanning opens, then change the following settings:

      • Scan Mode: select the scan bed or the automatic document feeder, depending on where you have loaded the original on the printer.

      • Type: scan as color, black and white, or optimized for text documents only.

      • Resolution: higher resolution produces better image quality using as many dots (pixels) per inch. A higher resolution increases the size of the analysis file. Use a higher resolution for scans with graphics or items that need to be the best details. If you scan a black and white text, higher resolution is not necessary.

      • Size: use a standard paper size, or select the use custom size option.

      • Scanning to: select the folder you want to save in analyses.

      • Name: type a name for the saved analysis file.

      • Format: select the type of file for analysis.


        Select PDF or TIFF format, and then select the check box next to combine in a single document to save documents to multiple pages or multiple images in a single file. This feature is only available with these formats.

      • Image correction: click on the pop-up menu, and then select manual to display the color change options such as brightness and saturation.

    5. Click on scan.

      The scan records in the selected folder of the scanning to .

    Source: scan from a Mac (OS X).

    Don't forget to come back to this thread and check "Accept as Solution", if I have successfully helped solve you the problem. If you want to say 'Thank you' to my effort to help, click on the "thumbs up" to give me a Kudos.

  • HP Envy 4500 - Scan does not, most periodic freezing


    I'm having a ton of problems with my HP Envy 4500. I will first start by scanning. First to get the "No found computer" message when you try to scan (I can print fine however). I tried HP Print & Scan doctor, he said I was not fully installed the driver. So I download the file ~ 100 MB, then it passes through basic facilities, then allows you to "Connect to printer", I'm wireless and enter the IP address (which is connected and Excellent report) and about 10 seconds later, he says: "cannot find the printer. My only options are the search, the installation program and cancel. Therefore, I can never get to install and he sends me in a loop. I also file & Printer sharing turned on with Windows 8.1, with the automatic configuration of network devices.

    Since the end of the printer, I've tried manual and automatic IP and also directly connect without a bit of luck. In addition to these frustrations adds the printer freeze about every 10-15 minutes. I have to disconnect and reconnect the printer for it to work again because it is totally insensitive.

    Finally, my printer indicates an update is available, so I download a driver, but it ends with the OXB82EF9BA error code. All crashes again.

    I tried everything that I can for hours without success. Please notify.


    Hello Jesse_B,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I understand that you get some problems with your desire to 4500. I will do my best to help you! First of all, I need to know your operating system on the computer that is having these problems? Click here to read: Windows.

    Because you are having problems with the HP software, I'll give you a few steps to help:

    Please uninstall the software on your computer by following this document from HP about uninstalling the printer software. When it finished, I would like you to clean your Temp folder on your computer:

    1. click on the start menu, in search programs and files type % temp %

    2. press on Ctrl and together on your keyboard (this will highlight all)

    3. right click on your mouse and click on remove

    Now, perform a clean boot on your computer by following this Microsoft document here. This will eliminate the conflicts of software that occur when you install a program or an update or when you run a program.

    Secondly, I would like to you can use the Printer Wizard to install the full features software. This is the right software and you need to use a USB cord to perform this step. It will be much easier to find your wireless network. (It's only for the Windows operating system 7-8: 1).

    If you printer is still the gel, then make sure that the printer is connected to a live wall, not a surge protector. I want to see if that makes a difference. Also, try to reset the printer for more than 60 seconds. Leave the printer turned on > unplug the power cord at the back of the printer.

    You receive an error message "OX82EF9BA". This refers to an error in Windows Update. You must perform this update on your computer. Please post your results, I will be looking forward to hear from your part have a good night!

  • HP Envy 4500 series: printers has been removed

    Help, please! I accidentally reset my settings to the printer when you try to restart my printer because it was frozen. I tried to reinstall the printer several times but failed. When I'm in the printers option in my settings, I tried clicking on the button "+" to add my printer, but have been unable to get it to connect. It is completely wireless and I can not get the printer to appear in any screen. When I got to my printer a few months ago, my computer basically put it all for me. No cables needed. I desperately need help my printer because I am a graduate student and need to print almost every day. Any help would be wonderful I've exhausted all possible ideas I have.

  • HP envy 4500 prints not windows 8. Think that it prints, but it doesn't.

    I'm trying to print from my Toshiba laptop running Windows 8 for my HP Envy 4500 wireless. Worked very well for my ipad, worked very well for my desktop and laptop computers running Windows 7. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the driver of printer 5 times. Printer is recognized, has an IP address and print an internal test page. When I print to it from my machine Windows 8, the file goes into the queue, gets a port and then disappears as if it was printed. Nothing prints. Please help, it's SO frustrating.


    I understand that you have done the process several times, and I definitely understand how that can be frustrating. I was wondering if you tried HP printer installation wizard to reinstall because it can often install things missing if this is the case here. If you have not tried, but I would like if you could try now and we can go from there if the problem persists. Thank you!
