Printer not printing is a common problem for HP printer users. This problem can be caused by a number of reasons, from connectivity issues to faulty configurations or drivers. If you are struggling to find a good solution, you can try the following methods. They can help you troubleshoot your HP Printer Not Printing problem.

1) Perform basic troubleshooting

2) Update the printer driver

3) Set your printer as default

4) Cancel all print jobs

5) Check the printer status

1) Perform basic troubleshooting

You can fix some problems at first when you find that your HP printer stops working. You should check the status of the connection between your printer and your computer. Make sure your devices are properly connected to each other and that the network or cable you use to connect these devices is normal.

You can also try restarting your HP printer. Turn it off completely and unplug the power cord, leave it for a couple of minutes, and then plug the cord back in and turn on the printer. See if your printer can print as normally as before.

2) Update or reinstall the printer driver

In many cases, the printer not printing problem stems from faulty drivers. You may need to update or reinstall the printer driver to fix your HP printer not printing problem.

An easy and credible way to deal with drivers is to use Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don't need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don't need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don't need to worry about making a mistake while installing.

You can download and install your drivers using the free or Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it only takes 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money-back guarantee):

a) Download and install the driver easily.

b) Run Driver Easy and press the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any driver issues.

c) Click the Update button next to your HP printer to download the latest and correct driver for this device. You can also press the Update All button at the bottom right to automatically update all the outdated or missing drivers on your computer (this requires the Pro version; you will be prompted to update when you click Update All).

Besides updating the driver, you can also use Driver Easy to uninstall the driver (Pro also required). This is especially useful when you want to reinstall a device driver.

a) Open Driver Easy and select Tools.

b) Select Uninstall Driver and you will see a list of device drivers. Find your HP printer driver and then click the Uninstall button. The driver you select will be removed soon.
