Do you happens to have a USB printer cable?
The USB printer cable looks like below:
Please let me know. Thank you,
Great. Please open Control Panel on the computer
; (if needed, press at the same time the two keys Windows and R on the keyboard, then type control then click OK, then the Control Panel window will open.)
, then open Hardware and Sound / Devices and Printers
, then there, right-click on the HP printer and remove / delete it for now and confirm
, make sure printer is powered on.
, connect printer's USB cable from printer to computer.
, wait a bit, and the printer should automatically be reinstalled
, check printing.
It should be only a few minutes. When you print now, does it show the HP printer in the list?
Do you have a desktop or laptop?
No, don't add a device or printer in Control Panel.
Is your computer a desktop or laptop?
Any USB port should work.
Make sure the printer's USB cable is pushed all the way in both printer and laptop.
Please connect the printer's USB cable to another USB port on the other side of the laptop, if available
, then see if the printer gets installed.
Great. Please print something you want and check. Thank you,
That's strange. In Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound / Devices and Printers, right-click on the Fax HP item, then select option Set as default printer, then click on the regular HP printer, if shown, then print and check. Thank you,
The USB printer can only fit one correct port on the printer.
When you print something, at the print dialog window, click on the printer dropdown list, then select the regular hp printer if shown (not fax), then print and check.
The USB port on the printer is located at the upper left corner in the image at the website below:
- Can you disconnect printer's USB cable from computer
, then delete all fax and HP items in Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound / Devices and Printers
, then re-connect USB cable to printer and computer
, then see what it installs.
So you were able to delete all fax and hp printer, then when you reconnected the printer to the computer, it installed the printer automatically, but it still cannot print. Does it give error? Or does it print blank or print badly?
1. Remove the USB printer cable.
2. Delete all fax and HP items in Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound / Devices and Printers.
3. Open the HP Officejet 6500 on your desktop screen
- It should ask you to set up a new device/rpinter
4. Select Wireless option.
5. If prompted, select the option that wireless light is green / okay.
6. Enter printer's IP Address when prompted and continue.
7. Print something and check.
Please let me know. Thank you.
