Problems printing to HP officejet 6500A plus e-All-in-one printer e710n

I am struggling to print to my " HP officejet 6500A plus e-All-in-one printer e710n". According to the setup network test (Wireless network test report), everything is successful (status "PASS" for all fields).  I also checked that the IP configured is the same as the IP displayed on the printer when i push the wireless button (updated via "Update IP address").
I have a laptops as well as netbooks connected to the wireless network. All these devices could previously print, however now none of them can. When i run the diagnostics (both the standard trouble shooter, as well as the one from microsoft when clicking on the fixit option), no problems are detected. When checking the device manager, i can see no conflicts.
When i open the printer control panel and click on "Customize your printer" and then go to "Ports" and click on  the "configure port" option, i get an error "An error occurred during port configuration. Operation could not be completed (error 0x0000007b).".
Please assist with any suggestions.

I was able to resolve the problem.
I reinstalled the printer on one of my other laptops (this might have cleared up an error on the printer). I think the true problem is related to the fact that we left the printer on, we've started switching it off when not in use. Even though it goes into sleep mode, it seems to cause problems over time if not switched off on the printer itself. 
The basics i did was check the network connection, printed a status of the network connectivity (you can do that from your control panel on the printer). If the network looks good, then try leaving your printer off for an hour or so, if that doesn't work, try reinstalling the printer on your device and start switching it off after use. I know it sounds crazy, but that's what i've been doing and haven't had a problem since.
It was a strange problem, in some cases i wasn't able to see the printer from devices that previously could, when the devices that could see the printer tried to print, it would print okay for a few pages and then start printing garbage, followed by failing completely and cancelling the print. When this happened there would be an error on the device saying it cannot connect to the printer, even though it could at the start of print.

  • HP Officejet 6500A Plus e-All-in-One Printer - E710n wireless print and web app problem

    We have an HP Officejet 6500A Plus e-all-in-one Printer - E710n and run Windows 7 on our laptop.
    I have run the wirelss setup wizard and have successfully connected the printer to the router, and both the laptop and printer are on the same network and have identical SSID.
    However, we can not send any prints the printer wirelessly. We have to hook it up to the USB to do so. We are also unable to access our web apps; pressing the app button on the printer control panel brings up the following:
    "Connection error. The printer was unable to connect to the server. Check your internet connection and try again."
    I have run through the suggested solutions under "A Network Connected Printer Cannot Access Print Apps, Web Services, or ePrint" in the customer care help centre which didn't work, although when I tried to enter the IP address under IPv4 into the browser address bar it timed out. I tried the HP Print and Scan Doctor, but it returns a result that suggests everything is fine.
    I turned off the firewall and tried again with no luck.
    I really am at a loss now. Diagnostics say it should work, but it doesn't. Help!

    Disable Bitdefender altogeher and try again.

    No Problem. Is everything working now or this tool only removed the HP software? If so, then try downloading the full feature software to see if this fails or not here. Please choose your correct operating system; Either 32 bit or 64 bit. I will be looking forward to hearing from you.

  • HP OfficeJet 6500A Plus e All in One Printer E710n-z

    I have the HP OfficeJet 6500A Plus E710n-z series for All-In-One Printer.  I lost my driver software disk together with the PC computer that had the  software driver installed in it.
    I now have the Printer and my current PC ( which is using Wins 7 Home Premium 64-bit Operating System).
    I have found the download link for the driver software from HP website and from the internet.Each time I download the driver software, there was a "cancel" or "unable to proceed" message at the almost end of the download process. I was told to "retry".
    My humble request is to have the driver software files so that I can install the driver and operate the printer. My PC is functioning as it can detect correctly the Printer with its correct name and model.
    I donot know the problems. Is it a virus?
    Alternatively, I greatly appreciate if you could email to me the driver software files.( Please use Google Cloud if the files are too big). 
    Thank you for helping me.
    Best regards.

    Since you have 10.10, you will first need to install this: HP Printer Drivers v3.0 for OS X. With that installed, follow the steps to add a printer here: Installing Your HP Printer Driver and Software for Mac OS X.

    I have a HP netbook DV7 with Windows 7. A Dell 15R 5520 (the last of the netbooks) with Windows 7 and a HP 6500A all in one printer. I would like to use the printer on both computer wirelessly without creating a homegroup. Is this possible? If so I would appreciate any help on the setup.

  • HELP!!!! HP Officejet 6500A Plus e-All-in-One Printer - E710n - will not stay online

    I have 2 desk tops a net book and a lap top connected to it and all test printed fine and then after a period of time the printer goes off line and then it will not work.  I can restart the printer and it still will not work.  The router does not even "see it" although it can ping it...???  I have reinstalled software and restored factory settings... I tried saving the IP that did not help.  It is brand new and I checked and it has the most recent firmware updates.  I have run network test reports and all is fine.  I tried an HP print diagnostic and it can't see the printer.  I got it to work temporarily after completing a router reboot, but now that is not working either.  I just bought this today and I have spent the last 5 hours researching and troubleshooting.  I am not overly tech savvy and I have exhausted my knowledge base and the info suggested on blogs and fix it sites. 
    I was replacing my hp all in one wired printer that the print head just went out on after only a little over a year.  I don't know if I need to return this printer or if there is a magic fix??? Please help!

  • HP Officejet 6500A Plus e-All-in-One Printer - E710n, Driver cannot download

    The driver stops downloading part way. Tried many browsers

    I am sorry you are having an issue with downloading the drivers. I would check with your Internet provider since this seems to only be happening on your PC. Your Internet could be dropping the connection, if even for a millisecond or a few seconds. Any drop in connection can cause downloads to fail.
    I hope this helps

    Yes. These days I prefer Brother printers. They appear to have engineered their printers with AirPrint as well as OS X compatibility from the start, unlike certain others who appear to have included it as an afterthought.
    Brother's models are inexpensive, their ink is also inexpensive and lasts a long time, and their photo quality is at least as good as HP's. They have a two year warranty and lifetime free technical support with people who understand Apple.
    Read the reviews (Amazon for instance, but be sure to read user reviews on the various manufacturer's websites as well) and decide for yourself.
    If you require AirPrint compatibility, or if there is any possibility you may need it in the future, limit your search to printers that specifically indicate AirPrint compatibility.
    Brother™ Monochrome Laser Printer and All-in-One models now support AirPrint.
    Brother™ Color Inkjet All-in-One units now support AirPrint.
    I have no affiliation with Brother but theirs was the first inkjet printer or "all-in-one" I have ever owned that simply works as well as the Macs I am accustomed to using. I positively detested every inkjet printer I ever had until I bought the Brother.

    HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus e-All-in-One Printer - N911g can not define a custom size paper.  I would like to have a custom size to work with a card making program.

    Can you help me out?
    I have an HP Officejet Pro 8600 N911a
    When I try to print to a custom print size (2.75" x 6" in my case), I get the same error everyone else is reporting: "Paper detected does not match paper size or type selected. Make sure the paper size or type is correct to continue the job."
    I am currently trying to print using Microsoft Word for Mac 2011 version 14.4.5, but I have the same problem with printing from Adobe Reader 9.8.5 or Preview 8.0.
    I am running OS X Yosemite 10.10.
    My printer's firmware is "up to date" as of 28-Aug-2014.
    This is what I did:
    1. Open System Preferences from the Apple menu.
    2. Click on the Printers & Scanners icon.
    3. Click on the + sign under the list of printers to add a printer
    4. Click on IP
    5. Enter my IP address in the Address field (verified as "valid and complete host name or address")
    6. Ignore Protocol field (default is Line Printer Daemon - LPD)
    7. Ignore Queue field (default is blank for default queue)
    8. Ignore Name field (default is IP address)
    9. Ignore Location field (default is blank)
    10. Under the Use dropdown menu, I select "Select Software"
    11. HP Deskjet 9800 is not an option.
    I searched for 9800, but there is no HP printer with that number in the options.
    I tried selecting "HP DeskJet 980C - Gutenprint v5.2.3" to see if that would work, but I received the same error message as above. I tried selecting other random HP printers, but so far I've had no luck.
    I've been googling about for a way to manually add a printer driver to this "Select Software" list, but I've found nothing (apparently, no one else wants to do this). I did not find a driver download for the HP DeskJet 9800 for OS X Yosemite 10.10 on the Drivers & Software section of the website.
    Additional details on settings for Microsoft Word for Mac 2011 version 14.4.5:
    Selected File > Page Setup from menu
    Under the Paper Size drop down menu, I selected manage custom size.
    - Click + to add a paper size
    - Enter "2.75" in width and "6 in" height in the paper size fields.
    - Enter "0 in" as the User Defined Non-Printable Area for top, left, right and bottom.
    - Double-clicked Untiled in the custom size list and rename the size as Receipt
    - Click OK to return to the Page Setup dialog box
    Under Settings: Page Attributes:
    - Format for "HP Officejet Pro 8600"
    - Paper size: Receipt
    - Orientation: "tall/portrait"
    - Scale: 100%
    - Click OK
    Select Format > Document and set all page margins to 0.25"

  • Printing problem - HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless All-in-One Printer, Red color fads on 4th copy

    I have an HP HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless All-in-One Printer, and am trying to print 75 copies of a program for our event. After the first 5-6 pages the RED in my program starts to turn magenta. I have brand new HP ink, and am printing on HP Color Injet Paper. I have renectly replaced the Black/Yellow printhead (at least 6 months ago). At first when I cleaned the printheads, I could print 2 or 3 pages showing my RED color. Then turns back to magenta. When I received the test patterns after cleaning the print heads they are all perfect with no lines.
    What is going on and how can I fix it?

    Hi TM1997,
    I understand you have an Officejet 8500 Wireless that is not printing red properly, it keeps turning to magenta. I'm sorry to hear this, but I will definitely do my best to help you!
    As I'm sure you saw, when replacing the black and yellow printhead, that there are two printheads in the Officejet 8500 and the second one controls the magenta and cyan. I would suggest that you first have a look through this Troubleshooting Print Quality Issues document. You can also manually clean your printhead with the steps in this 'The Following Printhead Appears to be Missing or Damaged' or 'The Following Printhead has a Problem... document.
    Hope this helps, have a great day!!

  • Printing problem - HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless All-in-One Printer - printer head?

    I posted this elsewhere, but I think I posted it on the wrong Forum so I am posting it here now. I hope I did not do anything to upset anyone. I am new to this area, please forgive my clumsiness.
    I have a HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless All-in-One Printer. I've had my printer since December 2009 and no problems. I recently bought a new laptop with Windows 7 and had to go online to find the drivers that work for my printer. Windows 7 was not compatible with this printer.
    Also recently, I am having a problem with what I think may be the black printer head, but when I run diagnostic on it everything comes back saying it is fine. However the problem still exist. When printing the black color will become faded in some areas and in some lines will not only almost totally fade out, but will almost look italic.
    Can you tell me if this is the printer head and does it need replacing or is there another problem?

    Are you using genuine HP cartridges and not refilled or third-party cartridges?
    Print the Print Quality Diagnostic page from the setup menu/print report/ on the printer's front panel
    Are there any quality issues with this page?
