  1. HP printer isn’t printing


    I am using PC running Windows 10 and an old printer HP Laserjet 1018. I had to install drivers so that this printer could work with Windows 10. When I open a document in MS Word 2016 and then click on Print, it is not printing. Under "status", I see "printer - error". I checked this printer with other computers and it works fine. The printer is connected to the PC using USB port

  2. Printer isn´t working after latest update.

    After the latest update from Windows, my Canon Pixma ip6600 printer isnt working. In Device Manager it shows up as working properly but when I go to print it isn´t listed as an option in any programs. Troubleshoot suggests it´s a USB 2 printer on a USB
    3 port and that that´s the problem but that cant be since it worked fine before the update. I´ve tried to uninstall and plug it back in but that doesn´t work either.

  3. Printer isn´t working after latest update.

    Managed to solve it... here´s how I did it just in case anyone else has the same problem...

    ->Settings

    ->Printers & scanners

    ->Add a printer or scanner

    ->The printer that I want isn´t listed

    ->Add a local printer or network printer with manual settings

    ->Use an existing port: USB001 (Virtual printer port for USB)

    ->Choose printer

    ->Use the driver that is currently installed

    ->Type printer name

    And done... =P

    HP Printer Offline and Slow to Print

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that your printer shows offline and there is a delay in printing.



    1. Did this issue started recently? If yes, then what are the recent changes that you have made to the computer prior to this issue?



    HP Print and Scan Doctor is an application software from HP that can help you eliminate any issues with your HP Printer or Scanner Devices. If you are having commons problem with your HP printer or scanner
    you can download, install and run HP Print and Scan Doctor Utility to easily scan for the error and troubleshoot them automatically.



    Method 1:



    Step 1: I suggest you download and run the
    HP Print and Scan Doctor and check if it resolves the issue.



    Step 2: I suggest you refer to the article
    Troubleshooting offline printer problems
    and perform the troubleshooting steps mentioned and see if that helps.



    Method 2:

    If your printer is slow to print, I suggest you refer and follow the suggestions from
    HP Printers - Slow Printing (Windows)




    Additional Information:

    Change a printer’s status from “offline” to “online”

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4027988/windows-10-change-a-printers-status-from-offline-to-online



    Hope it helps.
