The printer will not print is a common issue that can occur due to many distinct reasons such as out of date or missing drivers, bad configurations in the Windows OS, faulty connections, etc. Besides, even a paper jam or no ink can cause HP printer not printing errors. Below are some solutions to fix HP printer problems.
First, you have to check the obvious thing that might have led to the issue.
If you have to service the printer, you may have to get in touch with the company.
Print jobs send to an HP printer can be stuck in Windows’s print queue. In case the print job in question is stuck, it can stop other printing from happening normally on the printer. If so, clearing print jobs in the queue might help newer print request to go through fine.
Now, retry printing on the said printer to see in case that was the problem. In case that did not work, proceed to the subsequent steps.
Typically, when you send print requests, the OS will send them to the default printer. If it is connected but no document is printing, it could be that the device is not configured to default. To check that, follow the steps mentioned below.
Then, retry printing to check if that has resolved HP printer problems.
There are a few troubleshooting steps you can try to ensure you can print to the device, in case it stopped working. Firstly, check cables from the power socket to the printer’s power connector. Secondly, verify the cabling from the device to the computer. Moreover, see to it that the USB cable is sitting firmly on either end.
In case a network cable is running to the printer for network printing, ensure the Ethernet cable is very tight. In addition, check the user manual to see in case there should be blinking lights to signify a network connection.
Are lights at your printer’s front turned on? In case they are not and the device does not look to be turned on, attempt unplugging it and then plugging back in. Then, ensure to press its power button. In case the lights still do not come on, attempt a different power plug just in case the socket is not working.
In case nothing works to fix the issue and the printer will not turn on, you may want to take the device to the company service center.
In case all the aforementioned troubleshooting steps fail to resolve the issue, then update your printer’s driver to see if that fixes it. There are many ways to update the driver. One way is through the Windows Update. If you cannot find it that way, download it manually from the printer manufacturer website and install it.
