Please bookmark or favorite this page so you can get back to me.
Uninstall the printer from your mac.
Then disconnect the cable connecting it to the mac.
(if using a cable if not skip any cable steps)
Restart the computer and reinstall the machine.
Only connect the usb cable when the mac asks you to or when the installation is finished.
Do not test the machine yet instead restart the computer again and then test it.

Your answer does not help, it is a wireless connection, you have to give me some very simple instructions to succeed.

Which I did I clearly stated if you do not use a cable skip all the cable steps. So please follow these steps skipping any cable steps.

before i reinstall the hp is there any thing more simple to do?
Expert:  Freddy M. replied 5 years ago.
Unfortunately no you already did the more simple thing which would be to restart both the printer and mac.
