Is your HP Printer not responding to any given print commands? Is it not completely responding anything? HP is a leading brand in the market for providing the best performance printers. A user can have high-quality prints at affordable prices. However, it is also true that sometimes it breaks down. So let’s dig into the details for troubleshooting the non-responding HP Printer.
Ensure that USB cable is connected securely and properly with both computer and the printer.
Check if the driver’s software is outdated or damaged. Update them if needed, this could solve the issue. If you see an error message titled as “USB device is not recognized” or “Unknown USB device” then it indicates that there is some problem with the printer’s driver. Remove the device driver and reinstall the latest version.
Sometimes the printer doesn’t respond due to communication error. To check the same, restart the printer and the router after an interval of two minutes. Check if the problem is fixed; if not, then again restart your router and the computer. If you are working on Mac, go to Apple icon, click System preference and then select Printers and Scanners or any other option that is similar to it.
Open the Printers list. Select the name of HP and then click Open Print Queue. If the list doesn’t show your device then there is a network issue.
So all these troubleshooting techniques will help you out to make your printer responding. Also, remove any multiple printers if it is on your computer. Try our all these methods and you are done!
