My printer (HP Officejet...

My printer (HP Officejet Pro 8610), after working, wirelessly, with my Lenovo laptop very well, now tells me that the printer is ready, it will not print. Both the printer & my laptop, I like. Can you guide me through the process of getting them connected, again?

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your laptop, and what operating system are you running?

Lenovo: Model # 80E3A , Operating system: Windows 10.

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up?

I shut the computer down, quickly, because the printer started to print another copy of a 300+ page unneeded report.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

I am an inexperienced operator. I tried to reinstall, unsuccessfully, the printer. I am not sure, but it may have something to do with the Host Name & the IP address. Coach me.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the network expert to know before I connect you?

Only what you require.

Byron, your email is very timely. After your efforts to get my computer(Windows 10) (LENOVO) and my printer (HP Officejet Pro 8610) Ii worked for only that day. The next day, I received a notice that printer was in "an error mode". I am sitting in front of the computer right now. As you can I will need it for more than one day. Let me know what I can expect. Jim

I JUST MADE SURE HE PRINTHEAD WA NOT MISSING & OBSERVED THAT THERE WAS BLACK INK ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PRINTHEAD. I THINK IT WAS INSTALLED PROPERLY.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I JUST CHECKED THE PRINTHEAD AND WHEN I OPENED THE ACCESS DOOR THE PRINTHEAD DID NOT MOVE AS IT NORMALLY DOES.

For a leaking printhead on a less-than-a-year old printer contact

Consumer Technical Support: 1-(800)-474-6836, (1-800-HP INVENT) (24/7)

If they determine the printhead has failed it will be replaced at no cost to you.
