Have you checked that your computer recognises the printer-you may not have enough space to accept the installation. Open 'control' or 'systems preference' for your computer and check to make sure, and also that you have granted permission for the wireless printer to connect to your wi-fi. Then check to make sure your wi-fi is configured to permit connection for the printer.

Next, check to make sure the printer settings on the machine are configured correctly-my HP wireless had several settings that needed to be toggled on at the control panel of the actual printer before it would work.


Another issue could be the usb cord connecting your printer to your ISP, try changing it out with one you know functions. Hard to believe, but those cords do go wonky, especially the older ones with the phone jack type connectors.

After you try all of that, if you are still having problems you may need to completely 'un-install' (that will be in the control or system preferences section) and then do the installation over from step one.

If you still have the disc, it should be a simple 'insert disc, follow wizard' process; if you don't have the disc you can go to the HP site, use the search function to find the support pages for your unit, and follow the instructions there.
