Photosmart 7520: Photosmart 7520 has lost its wireless connection

Our photosmart 7520 used to print beautifully two laptops, but today it stopped printing at all and seems to have lost its connection to the internet.

I tried to remove it from my system preferences, to reset, and when I tried to add it, it was no longer on the list of available printers.

Hello @cornylouise!

Thanks for posting on the HP Forums!

I would be happy to provide you with assistance on the Photosmart 7520 and the problem of communication between 2 laptops.  If the printer is no longer being found by computers, then you can by looking at a slight problem of Wi - Fi.  The first thing I would suggest is the cycle of power cables to the printer and the router by unplugging the power for 20 seconds.  Once the devices back on then see if you can add the printer to laptop computers.

If you are unable to find the printer then I suggest to restore the default settings of network on the printer and it reconnect to the wireless network.

To restore the default settings of the network printer:

  1. To press the Wi - Fi icon at the top of the touch screen to printer
  2. Tap Settings
  3. Tap on restore default network settings and confirm

To run the Wireless Setup Wizard:

  1. Icon press the Wi - Fi at the top left of the screen touchscreen printer
  2. Tap Settings
  3. Press wireless configuration wizard
  4. Select your network
  5. Enter the password and confirm it
  6. Check if the computer can find the printer again

If please, after back and let me know how it goes!

  • Windows cannot connect to the printer. The name of the printer has been correctly entered, or the specified printer has lost its connection to the server.

    A Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition SP2 32-bit computer is a field, the file and print server.

    A computer on the domain is a machine of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 - bit with HP DesignJet 500 24 printer connected via USB.  The printer is running the latest firmware.  The PC is running the latest 64-bit drivers with no problems to the host machine printing.  The host also has the latest drivers 32-bit (x 86) installed by downloading by other computers on the network.  The printer is configured to share with the share name of HPDJ500.

    Now, on a machine Windows XP Pro SP3 32 bit on the field, I'm trying to connect to the shared printer.  Add a printer > click Next in the wizard of > check "a network printer or a printer attached to another computer" and then click Next > click on "Find a printer in the directory", then click Next > click Find now > HPDJ500 in the list below (the XP machine can see the shared printer on the Windows 7 computer!) and click OK.  At this point, I get an error that says: "Windows cannot connect to the printer.  The name of the printer has been correctly entered, or the specified printer has lost its connection to the server.  For more information, click Help. »

    Alternatively, if I right-click on the HPDJ500 printer listed, then click on connect, I get the same error message but I also see a separate window that says "Connecting to HPDJ500 on" with the lively projector.  This window also disappears as soon as I clear the error message.

    Please note that this printer worked perfectly as a printer shared, hosted on a machine XP 32 bit on the field.  It works perfectly for the new Windows 7 64-bit machine, but we cannot connect from anywhere else on the network (including the server which translates the same exact error message).  On the server, I also preinstalled drivers thinking there was a problem with a 32-bit computer, trying to grasp the correct drivers from the host 64-bit Windows 7, but that doesn't change anything.

    How connect to this printer?

    Try using the path UNC path of the printer in the Add Printer Wizard.

    Add a printer > network printer > connection to this printer ((deuxieme point)

    Click next to browse (leave blank, the name field) or type the UNC path of the printer (i.e. \\Computername\Printername) path

    My sisters thinkpad XP pro is unstable and it has lost its drive.  I can reinstall using my xp pro disk and its product key?

    I fixed it!

    I couldn't work at all Internet Explore.  I finally installed Superantispyware from a USB pendrive and it ran in safe mode without network.  So I ran Malwarebytes and ccleaner.  After a reboot, everything works great again.  I could install Microsoft Security Essentials and get current updates.  After a smart defrag it turns really well now.

    I was able to make a recovery cd set too.  It will be just as good as if I he burned them on a new computer?  I mean can the data used to make these CDs get corrupted over time?  This laptop is 6 years old.
    Thank you for your willingness to help.
  • A type of file has lost its association to open with Windows Explorer

    On my machine the XP Acronis True Image Archive of backup .tib file type opens with Windows Explorer and I see in the details of the files in the backup.

    On my machine the association used to be with Windows Explorer Vista, but recently the association has changed. I can't figure out how to restore it.

    When it is correctly associated, I can read files in Windows Explorer, but no more.

    When I right click on the file and select Properties, it gives me the ability to change opens with Adobe Reader, Internet Explorer, iTunes, Media Center, Notepad, paint, PowerDVD, RealPlayer, Windows Calendar, Windows Media Player, Windows Photo Gallery, Word Pad or browse...

    I was hoping to go to Windows Explorer, but I was not able to find it. Is it in a folder hidden somewhere?

  • Time Capsule has lost the Internet connection and DNS servers

    I use a Time Capsule for Time Machine via Ethernet backups for a couple of years, use it in mode bridge taking its Internet connection directly from my router and connected in turn by Ethernet to my iMac. (Most of the time that I also had wifi off on my iMac and took my Internet directly via the TC Ethernet connection.) A few months ago I upgraded to El Capitan, and the TC has lost its connection Internet (flashing yellow). A few days later I drove back to the Yosemite (for other reasons - Mail had gone mad) to restore a backup of the TC and everything was fine again for a few months. It may or may not be meaningful I plugged TC yesterday to new laptop for my wife to support for the first time, and this laptop is running El Capitan. Since then, the TC has once more lost its Internet connection and DNS settings and is stuck on flashing orange. By clicking on the 'Internet connection' status alert, tells me that the TC is not a valid IP address.

    I have reset the TC, repeatedly and reconfigured but all without success. After consulting the other discussions, I also tried giving the unit an alphanumeric name with no spaces & special characters and change the IPv6 "Link-local" configuration only, but this did not affect the result. And I updated the firmware for good measure. Then I unplugged overnight and carried out a full power cycle the steps recommended here, restart the router, TC and the computer (and performed a factory reset on the TC, while the router & computer was turned off). After doing that, the TC has become undetectable by AirPort Utility, until I have reset reconfigured once again, he and ended up in the same place.

    It may or may not be important to mention the following:

    1 when you set the TC after a reset, I repeatedly selected the option of adding to an existing network instead of create a network, but the installation wizard who ignored each time.

    2. in the installation each time, this point, I shows me the following, which seems to suggest that there is a problem but don't say so explicitly:

    I would be grateful for any advice.

    Weird how everything's going well for a few years and then crazy when you have something will change.

    El Capo adds some network problems more... but something could be fundamentally wrong with the installer.

    Your current configuration, it is apparently bridged but cannot get an IP address. The address 169.254 is give it since it's self generated.

    You need to do a manual installation. It simply means the Assistant is unable for any reason to be your network so start over and do it manually of misfortune (wow, or also possible misery, woah being where you are now!) to go...!

    1. I need to know what modem you are connected. Make and model please?

    2. the most important. What is the main router on your network or a modem?

    I gave the edge to make manual settings a few times. Somehow my instructions for Yosemite/El Capo got lost... I'll try and hunt down them. In the meantime, the basic method remains the same.

    It is not so difficult... You just know where you're going before you start.

  • 7520 HP loses the wireless connection. What can I do?

    I've seen lots of talk about HP products, loss of wireless connection.  I have the same problem with my 7520.  Initial Setup is perfect, but he began to lose the connection when it went into standby mode.  Someone at - it a solution?

    On April 18, 2014 (page 11 of this thread), I posted a quick solution. My HP7520 printer has worked on Netgear router WIFI 7550 flawless since then. I suggest you read this post.
    From long experience with HP, I found they have great hardware, but their software has always been dismal. The ultimate "fix" would be for HP address their failure of a software that allows to my difficulty in working.
    A single "tweak" in the router security settings wifi will do. The rest of settings changes other people have suggested are short lived (about an hour in most cases), while they don't be reconnected unless they restart everything. It makes sense because of what is happening.
    The single "twist" parameter should logically point HP programmers to where in the firmware, there is the problem. They listen to? And, really, it doesn't matter on all other settings printer and router. All mine are back to the default settings and it all still works very well.
    Go to a BBQ and stop wasting your time on this issue.

  • with the help of your friends desktop PC running XP has LOST ITS (out of nowhere) unable to recover. sound in the control panel is grayed out. so is audio; "no audio currency found!

    IE and Firefox running.

    Search engines are not the problem. I don't think so. Has also lost its icon in the systray.

    I checked the connections. I have a set of small peripheral speakers: they get power but no audio.

    Try reinstalling the Audio/software drivers from the manufacturers Web site.

    I hope this helps.

  • I lost my wireless connection, says no wireless connection available... but they are!


    I use a laptop dell inspiron with windows 7 - I set up a wireless connection with talk talk about 6 weeks - and things has of worked - this weekend the small icon at the bottom of the laptop had a red throug crodd there - when I clicked on "Open the network and sharing Center" he registered the wireless connection, I use and had a maximum strength indicator , but a red cross through the connection.

    I checked the wireless router with my computer pc laptop and work - blaze they work correctly. So I have concluded, the dell laptop itself (which is about 6 weeks old).

    I plugged the yellow wire - and makes hard wired - and the internet works on the laptop.

    Keeping in mind I don't know anything about computers or how correct - can someone tell me if I've lost a program and where/how to find it or not it sounds like a defect on the laptop

    I'll be very grateful for any help

    Thanks domi

    If the Dell is still under warranty, by all means, file a claim and see if a new card does the trick.  It is a Forum of Vista, this is why everything is on Vista - you should have posted in the Forums of Windows7 if it is the OS you use - then the tips and links correspond to your system.  I suggested to contact Dell in a previous post - not specifically for this, but it would have developed in the conversation.

    Even if it is not under warranty, there is a good chance that the card is the problem if the system can connect wirelessly with another device (which means that the configuration is correct and connections work and Vista has no problem with the wireless operation).  If you can, try to make sure you can return it for a full refund if you attach and encounter the same problem.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!
