No. Just tell me what to do. I have already been charged $33.
Technician: Viet - Printer Tech, Printer Technician replied 8 months ago

Thank you. On your printer's screen, can you touch the wireless / signal icon, then touch the gear / wheel icon, then touch the option Wireless Setup Wizard, then select / connect to your new Jetpack modem's Wi-Fi / wireless network name?

With remote support, you can see everything I do on the screen, and we have an A+ service rating at the Better Business Bureau website:
http://www.bbb.org/greater-san-francisco/business-reviews/professional-services-general/justanswer-in-san-francisco-ca-82403/
Remote support is quicker and easier for you as I will do all the troubleshooting steps for you. Also, this issue can be complicated. Otherwise, I will provide written instructions.

Do you see the wireless / signal icon on the printer's screen?
How about with a small amount as shown for direct remote support?

What's the error or message when printing? Can you uninstall / reinstall the printer's driver / program?
Can we do a remote support session, so I can troubleshoot the issue directly on your computer together with you?

All it said was Printer no online. I do not want you to remote into my computer. Perhaps I should contact HP.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Sorry - Printer not online.
Technician: Viet - Printer Tech, Printer Technician replied 8 months ago

HP will not help you as the printer is out of warranty, or they would charge you a lot more. With remote support, you can see everything I do on the screen, and we have an A+ service rating at the Better Business Bureau website:

Unfortunately this printer did not come with a CD or thumb drive for installing. As I recall, I just set it up and it connected without me doing anything. It was much too easy.
Technician: Viet - Printer Tech, Printer Technician replied 8 months ago

I can fix this issue directly and quickly on your computer's screen. Or If you'd like to, I will continue to provide written instructions; written instructions will take longer, so please bear with me.

Do you see a program called HP ENVY... on your computer?

Are you able to open Control Panel on your computer?

HP ENVY... is in the printers and devices file of the Control Panel
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Never mind. I found the information in hpconnected.com
Technician: Viet - Printer Tech, Printer Technician replied 8 months ago

Wait, please do not try hpconnected.com; I will provide you faster process.

Yes, please open Devices and Printers in Control Panel, then there, right-click on the HP printer, and delete it for now.

Please make sure to delete all the HP item(s) there.

I was able to download the printer driver BUT I had to go into 123.hp.com to get the version I needed. The address for the site you gave me only would allow me to download BASIC print driver. I wanted/needed the full print driver. Going into 123.hp.com did not cost me anything as you said it would cost more that your service. I did not get what I needed from your service and want my money ($33.00) back. Thank you.
Technician: Viet - Printer Tech, Printer Technician replied 8 months ago

I'm sorry. I believe my solution would have fixed the printing issue for you. I showed you the Wireless Setup Wizard option on the printer's screen; that's half of the solution. Then I showed you how to delete the printer from the computer, and to download / install the Basic printer driver. The basic printer driver would fix the printing issue. The basic printer driver also contains the Scan program and all the options / settings for your printer. I showed you the basic driver because it's faster for downloading and installation. The basic driver is usually all you need. I'm not sure why you need the full printer driver, but if you had told me earlier, then I would provide the full driver quickly for you, so that you didn't have to go find it yourself. You needed help with the printing issue, so I was trying to provide the quickest solution as possible. If you need something, or have any question, you can always reply back to me, then I would answer you right away.

Do you need help with any other computer question / issue today?
