Customer Question
Hi there. My...

Hi there. My main (newer) mac is not working. I'm trying to connect my HP Envy 100 to either my MacBook or my older mac desktop. No luck. Any easy suggestions?

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your Mac?

I knew you'd ask me something really tricky. So, my tech guy (who could answer all of this if he was here) said my old mac desktop should not be upgraded (he explained why but I can't remember). It's on OS X Version 10.8.5

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Mac? What have you tried so far?

My MacBook is MacOS Sierra I've tried hooking the printer cable to the old computer and trying to turn off the wireless connection. I've tried to make sure everything is on the same wifi network.

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

Guess not. Thanks.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
