OfficeJet 4636: Unable to print after update to El Capitan (Officejet 4636)


After the update to El Capitan, I am able to print on my Officejet 4636. Each print job begins, ends up perhaps a third of a page and then stops. It doesn't seem to be a updated driver for El Capitan, the less not yet. Will there be a soon? Is there another problem? Help, please!

Thank you very much.


Hello @officejet4636and welcome to the Forums of HP, I hope you enjoy your experience!

I see that you are having driver issues. I would like to help!

I suggest to remove the printer from your printing system, using this document: uninstalling the software of the printer.

Once you have deleted, I suggest to check and repair disk permissions: function to fix the permissions of all utility disk drive.

I also run your Apple updates: OS x: Mac App Store apps and OS X update

After the updates, I recommend time of the printer:

Installation of your printer driver HP and software for Mac OS X

Good luck and please let me know the results of your troubleshooting operations. Thanks for posting on the HP Forums!

    I lost my bootcamp partition after update to El Capitan (solitary method T did not work for me: () is lost forever?)

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    How do you have a 100 MB NTFS file system and free space after the partition of 100 MB. You have a MSR (100 MB), but your windows are the current MSD.

    SIP is activated. Your MBR has no bootable entry, because it is not marked. Please describe in detail what steps were tried.

  • After update of El Capitan, TextEdit closes unexpectedly before opening

    After update of El Capitan, TextEdit always closes unexpectedly before the opening, in a user account (which left more than 20 open TextEdit documents, before the update of El Capitan)...

    And in another user account, which has left no documents TextEdit open before the update of El Capitan, TextEdit open without any problems.

    What needs to be done, so TextEdit will open the first user account?

    Is there a way to reset the list of open documents TextEdit?

    Please quit the application. Force quit if necessary.

  • OfficeJet 5745: Cannot print after update of Windows 10

    I've updated to Windows 10 and now have problems printing.  Help!  I've done all the troubleshooting, coil status stuff!  I'm used to be able to print from the internet, scanning to my computer or email and print wireless from my phone.  I now can not print anything!  I tried to install Windows updates.  Should what printer I configure default network or regular?  Use the printer pdf microsoft thing?  I am desperate... saved my bank statement online (pdf) to my documents and it would not print the Bank or my documents!  Before this I had problems after that my hard drive crashed and I got a new hard drive.   When my hard drive crashed I was using WINDOWS 10 and everything on the big printer worked; they sent back with new hard drive on windows 8.1 and I had I thought that the upgradew would solve the questions.   I could print and scan but no wireless for my phone on the new HDD in windows 8.1 and upgrade to 10 thought would solve my problems, but now it's worse... Help!

    Hi @savra,

    If your computer is connected to the printer on a wireless network, you do not want to send print jobs to the network printer.

    Here is a support document to help with printer after Windows 10 upgrade problems - after Windows 10 Upgrade, printer problems occur.

    Aside to make sure Windows updates are up to date, there are a few other updates that can help with printing.

    Microsoft has released an update that is supposed to help with wireless printing - Cumulative Update for Windows 10.

    There was also an update for Adobe Flash Player in Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge who can help get this impression of your bank's site - Update for Adobe Flash Player.

    Please let me know how it goes.

    If this helps you find a solution please click the 'accept as Solution' and the 'thumbs up' buttons down below in this message.

    Thank you!

  • HPEnvy 7640 HPScan 4.6.0 (36): HP Scan not saving docs after update OS El Capitan

    I've just updated to El Capitan (Mac OS 10.11). I use HP Scan and my scanner working properly until the moment when I want to save the scanned document. Then I get error message saying: "unable to save scanned items. An attempt to save the documents scanned at the location requested failed. Please check that the destination exists, that it has sufficient storage space for your files and you are allowed to save files in this location. "My detsination exists (my HD), it doesn't have a lot of space and the administrator of the computer, I guess I have permission to save files. I have no problems saving other files. I also tried saving to dropbox instead of my HD, same problem.

    The work around I used is to select the print option and then save the file in pdf format. This works for now, but if I want to save a document scanned as a jpg it may become more difficult.

    Just to be sure, I have run the mac disk utility and found no problem with the disk.

    I have 2 computers more pending to be updated to El Capitan, but is that I often scan documents I would like to address this problem before you can update other computers.


    Don't you see the same results with HP Easy Scan?

    If this work fully can trash the HP scanning, the HP Easy Scan provide exactly the same functionality (a little its latest version).

    LTE please let me know how it goes,


  • After update of El Capitan, Fusion 8 will not open the Boot Camp virtual machine


    I'm having a problem with the Fusion 8 since my update to El Capitan.   My Boot Camp partition is functional and I can boot directly into it very well - all my files and data are intact.   However, when I try to start the machine Boot Camp in a virtual machine within OS x, I get the following error:

    Operation not permitted

    Cannot open disk "/ Administrator/Users / / Library/Application Support/VMWare Fusion/Virtual Machines/Boot Camp/Boot Camp 2.vmwarevm/Boot Camp 2.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends."   Module 'Disc' on failed.   Unable to start the virtual machine. »

    I remember a message from the update of El Capitan, indicating that it is an element incompatible Parallels and disabled.   I thought it was the components of laggard remains from when I ran a parallel trial a year ago, but perhaps it is related?

    Help, please!

    Hi gang,.

    I have a solution for this!   After I created this post, I created a ticket with support and they solved it for me.

    Here's the skinny: El Capitan has changed something wise permissions to access data files on the Bootcamp partition.  VMWare said they were working to solve this, but in the meantime they had me do made me upward and short... just remove the entry of the virtual machine Boot Camp in Fusion and recreate it.   I recommend you save beforehand in case where, but this process does not affect the data on your partition, only one definition of the Fusion of the virtual machine and how you can access your score.

  • My MacBook Pro won't start after update to El Capitan, how can I go back?


    I really hope that someone can help me here. I've updated to El Capitan Yosemite yesterday through software update, but now when I start the computer I get "no entry" or sign a circle with a diagonal line through it, or the Apple with the progress bar / error message / black screen and it repeats 3 times then stops.

    I'mnot you know where my disk of Mac OS x is so ideally don't want to reinstall the whole system.

    I did a back up of my work using Time Machine before saving, so I hope that I have most of the things I need backup.

    Restart by pressing cmd - R after the tone. It should boot into Recovery. From there, use disk to check/repair disk utility. Quit disk utility and reinstall OS X.

    The circle with a slash through it means that it does not find the necessary boot files.

  • External screen does not work after update of El Capitan

    Hi all

    I hope someone can help out me with this. I have a MBP 2011 (i7, 4 GB ram, 330 M) and since I've updated to El Capitan (now 10.11.2) my external screen no longer works. I use a HDMI Cable MiniPort who worked before the upgrade. I am trying to connect to a 720 p TV and tried to connect it to my 28 '' ASUS monitor 1080 p that I normally use for my Windows desktop. None worked. My MacBook display blinks for a while when I connect it and then nothing. I was not able to connect it to my projector via VGA USB adapter until I've found the last update on the Web site of the adapter, then at least the display has been resolved. I tried the 'View to detect' button in the preferences system, no luck.

    I had the same problems. I installed El Capitan in MacBook Air early 2015. My external monitor is Dell P2314H. After installation, the MacBook Air is no longer detected the monitor, and the monitor does not save any video input to the computer.

    I chatted with Apple Support, but they don't give me satisfactory answers.

    Then I came across this answer on another thread of discussion the similar question:

    Re: El Capitan does not detect my external display

    And the solution that works for me is proving to be as simple as changing the cable. So I stopped using official mini Apple displayport to HDMI/DisplayPort/DVI connector. Instead now I use a cable (mini displayport to displayport in my Dell of MacBook Air) I bought locally (I live in Jakarta, Indonesia). It works like magic.

    I hope this helps you.
