Envy 4500 has stopped printing off both a Macbook Air and a Pro - was fine before

I've been very happy with my printer/scanner but today it has stopped printing off both my Macbook Air and Macbook Pro.  The printer seems fine so not sure why this has happened.  Please help!

Hi @Swaggie,
Welcome to the HP Forums!
I understand that your HP Envy 4500 is not printing from your Macbook Air and your Macbook Pro. I am happy to help you with this printing issue!
For further assistance, I will need to know the following information:
The version number of the Mac Operating Systems. To find the exact version, visit this link. Whatsmyos.
If the printer is connected, Wireless, or USB.
If the printer is able to make copies. Copy Text or Mixed Documents.
If the power cable is plugged into a surge protector, or directly to the wall outlet. Issues when Connected to an Uninterruptible Power Supply/Power Strip/Surge Protector. This applies to Inkjet printers as well.
If there are any error messages on the printer's display panel.
In the meantime, please take a look through this guide, 'Printer is offline' Message Displays on the Computer and the Printer Does Not Print: Mac OS X, and let me know what happens!
Hope to hear from you soon!

  • MY envy 5330e has stopped printing anything from online sources.

    MY envy 5330e has stopped printing anything from online sources but will print from on board documents or pictures.

    Hey @youngfmly,
    Because your HP ENVY 5530 e-All-in-One Printer is producing blank prints from three computers when printing from the the internet I'm wondering if there may actually be a hardware ink system issue occuring. I understand that this may sound odd as everything else appears to print fine. However, when printing from your computers colour ink is used to enrich the black ink when printing in certain programs. Primarily when the computer 'sends' the print job to the printer as an image file. Therefore, just to ensure that your printers ink system is functioning properly, I am going to have you print a standalone Print Quality Report.
    How to Print the Quality Report:
    Load plain white paper in the paper tray.
    On the printer control panel, touch the Settings icon (), and then touch Tools. The Tools Menu displays.
    Touch Print Quality Report. The printer prints the test page.
    If this report prints perfectly: Than the issue that you're experiencing is not related to the printer. Rather, there is likely a setting that still  needs to be checked under Google Chrome. If your modem/router was causing this issue all prints would be affected.
    If this report prints with quality defects or missing colours: Than the Google Chrome printing issue that you're experiencing is being caused by your printer. To resolve this print system issue can I please have you click here. Once the support document opens please run through Solution six, Solution seven, and Solution eight. This includes any sub-steps under the listed Solutions.
    Please let me know the result of printing this standalone Quality Report. I look forward to hearing from you!

  • HT5621 How do I change the Apple ID stored on my MacBook Air?  I have changed my Apple ID on the Apple ID website, but both my MacBook Air and my iMac show the old Apple ID when accessing iCloud.

    How do I change the Apple ID that is stored on my MacBook Air.  I have changed my Apple ID on the Apple ID website but both my MacBook Air and my iMac show the old Apple ID when accessing iCloud.

    I had this problem on my iMac and fixed it after a  half hour of frustrated trying.  I had changed my Apple ID on my iPad mini while traveling.  When I finally got back home after a few months, I couldn't  log in to iTunes on my iMac.  The old Apple ID was still being used on my iMac.  I tried just highlighting it and deleting it and typing in my new Apple ID.  No dice. The login just defaulted to my old Apple ID.  I tried clicking on the drop down menu that appears when you right right click your Apple ID  that appears at the top of the page after highlighting the 'iTunes Store" in the left side list.  I saw "account" so I clicked on that.  The "account" settings on my iMac showed my new Apple ID but my iMac wouldn't use it. It just kept defaulting to my old ID. I shut down.  I logged back in.  Same result.  Finally I right clicked the same drop down menu and saw "sign out" at the bottom of the list.  Even though I was not signed in to iTunes, I clicked "sign out".  My next log in to iTunes showed my Apple ID as blank and I was able to type in my new ID.  Hope this helps.
    I am a long time 20 year Microsoft user. I am somewhat ( 1 year) new to Apple. With Microsoft, I found that fixing problems was clunky and complex, but there was always a post somewhere that explained the fix. Microsoft's explanations stated even the most obvious fact. Even if everyone knew that the sky was blue, Microsoft's instructions would still tell you that the sky was blue.  With Apple, I find that the obvious is sometimes not so obvious.  But the fix is almost always easy once you find it, without many of the elaborate maneuvers needed in Windows.

  • TS2634 My iPad Charger has stopped working after plugging into MacBook Air?

    Hello there,
    I have owned my iPad Mini for about 2 months now, and the charger has stopped working. It sometimes works on my MacBook Air, but often I get a popup on my computer saying, "To prevent damaging your computer, the USB device drawing too much power has been disabled. Other devices may have also been disabled. When you disconnect the device drawing too much power, your other USB devices will be enabled again." I have tried plugging my iPad into a wall charger, but it still does not charge. There is a small hole and the first part of the cable from the iPad is a bit twisted. Is there any way of fixing this, or do I have to buy another?

    Computer USB ports often do not provide enough power to charge an iPad efficiently. The best way to charge an iPad is with the charger that came with the iPad.
    Sounds like your cable is damaged too and needs to be replaced. My suggestion would be to buy two so that you have a backup. If your iPad has a lightning connector be sure to buy a name brand cable, either Apple or another well known brand. Do not buy cheap knockoff cables on eBay and they may not be certified to work with an iPad and you'll get an error message about that when you try to use them.

  • Problems with wireless printer set up for Macbook Air and iMac

    I'm not having success in setting up  my Macbook Air (2012 ML version) and iMac wirelessly to a new Epson 837 printer. I've tried darn near everything and am coming to the conclusion that perhaps it's a router issue. Are there known issues with the Netgear N600? It's supposed to be Airprint compatible but yet my ipad and iphone doesn't recongnize either. 
    Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    Yup, and since all your devices can probably access the Internet and other services over the router, you may want to study the printer's manual or use other Epson resources to figure out why that thing can't be talked to.
    Oh, did I mention that already...?

  • My PIXMA MG 6220 has stopped printing on both sides of the paper

    It prints on the first side, pulls back, but doesn't print on the back side. The 2nd copy does the same thing. I've tried turn on short end and on long end. No help. Any thoughts?

    Hi @Wineroth 
    I can help you disable the duplex printing feature. I suggest resetting the printing system to delete all printer presets. I suspect something was saved at some point that is causing the printer to print 2 sided.

  • My Apple TV icon won't appear on 2012 IMac.  Both my Macbook Air and my Iphone can find and play on my tv.  It is a 2nd gen Apple TV, has worked before, what am I missing?

    I've turned on sharing in Itunes.

    Hello steppenwiener,
    Thank you for the details of the issue you are experiencing with your Apple TV connecting with your iMac.  It sounds like you are not seeing the AirPlay icon in iTunes on your iMac.  I recommend the following steps:
    Resolution
    Try these steps first:
    Verify that you are using the latest version of iTunes.
    iTunes for Mac: Choose iTunes > Check for Updates
    iTunes for Windows: Choose Help > Check for Updates
    Verify that all your AirPlay-enabled devices' software is up to date.
    Verify that all your AirPlay-enabled devices are connected to the same home network.
    Note: Some Wi-Fi network configurations offer a guest network that can block certain Internet services from working or seeing other devices on your home network.
    If the AirPlay icon doesn’t appear in iTunes
    Ensure that you followed these steps to use AirPlay in iTunes.If the AirPlay icon still doesn't appear, try one of the following steps:
    If you want to AirPlay to an Apple TV, ensure that AirPlay is enabled on the Apple TV.  From the Apple TV main menu, go to Settings > AirPlay. This should be set to On.
    If you want to AirPlay to an Airport Express, ensure that AirPlay is enabled in the device settings.
    If you want to AirPlay to a 3rd party AirPlay-enabled device, refer to the user guide.

  • HP Envy 4500 won't print from computer

    Hi,
    My HP Envy 4500 has been working perfectly for quite some time now.  Unfortunately, it has stopped printing from my Dell laptop, running Windows7. It scans to the laptop just fine.  It copies fine, and it prints from my iPhone fine.
    I have looked at a ton of posts and tried many things:
    *uninstall/reinstall wirelessly (at least 8 times) -- via the https://123.hpconnected.com/activate/woobe/ENVY4500 site
    *uninstall/reinstall via USB
    *ran print/scan doctor utility (or whatever it is called) and been told everything looks fine
    *sending a test page via one of HP's tool is fine, however, printing the internal test page via the HP tool fails 
    I am losing my mind and would really appreciate some help.
    Thank you!

    Hello @JNZM,
    Welcome to the HP Support Forums!
    I would like to assist you today with resolving the issue that you're experiencing when trying to print from your Windows 7 computer to your HP ENVY 4500 e-All-in-One Printer. Thank you for including all of the troubleshooting steps you have completed prior to reaching out for support. At this time I will be running you through some troubleshooting steps to check the actual print system on your computer. The Print Spooler is what controls printing from Windows computers. It is built into the Operating System. If the Print Spooler is experiencing issues than you will experience printing conflicts. Should the Print Spooler be experiencing a conflict, the software and scanning feature for the printer will not be affected. Can I please have you follow the steps below.
    Step 1: Check Print Spooler:
    Click on your Start menu
    In the 'search programs and files' box located right above Start type services.msc and hit enter on your keyboard
    When the Services window opens scroll down until you see Print Spooler
    Click on Print Spooler once just to highlight it
    If you see Start in the top left hand corner than that indicates that  your Print Spooler is in fact Stopped (not good). But we will leave this for now.
    If you see Stop or Restart in the top left hand corner than this indicates that your Print Spooler is actually Started. Please click on Stop to temporarily Stop the service.
    Minimize this window as we will need to come back here
    Step 2: Check Spooler Folder:
    Click on your Start menu
    Select Computer
    In the Computer window select your C Drive
    Click on Windows
    Click System32
    Click Spool
    Click PRINTERS. You may get a permissions warning, just Continue past this.
    The PRINTERS folder should be empty. If there is any files in here they are corrupted print jobs. Right click on anything in this folder and 'delete' the files.
    Close the PRINTERS folder
    Step 3: Start Spooler:
    Reopen the Services window we previously minimized
    Click on Print Spooler again to highlight it
    Click on Start in the top left corner
    If you get an error message please take note of it
    If the Print Spooler starts successfully you will see 'Stop and Restart' as your options in the top left
    Once the Print Spooler has started please test printing again. If printing fails, or if the Print Spooler fails to start, please proceed to the next step.
    Step 4: Run Microsoft Fixit:
    I'm going to have you run a Microsoft Print Fixit Tool to identify and correct any print system issues or Registry corruptions on the computer.
    Please click here to access the Microsoft Fixit website
    Once the page opens under section (2) select Print, fax, scan, share or save.
    Under section (3) select Run Now for Diagnose and fix printer and printing problems automatically
    Once the download is complete please follow the onscreen instructions to run the Microsoft Tool
    Once the Fix has run, please test printing again.

  • Dictation on my new iMac has stopped working on both the internal

    Dictation on my new iMac has stopped working on both the internal & external microphones. Any suggestions?

    Does the onscreen microphone come up but it doesn't convert speech to text? Or does the onscreen microphone not appear at all?
    In System Preferences > Dictation & Speech > Dictation, is the microphone set to "Automatic"? You might try setting it to "Internal microphone" to see if it works.
    Have you tried restarting the iMac?
