HP P2015dn wirless connection stopped working


Hi,
There is not wireless netwrok card is HP LJ P2015dn, However as i can understand you r using External Wireless Router or Wireless network or jet-direct card if u r able to work fine on USB than printer printing mechanism is working fine.
If u connect the printer via wired network connection and it keeps on loosing IP address than it may be problem with onboard network card of the printer.
If printer keeps on loosing IP Address than try upgrading the firmware of the printer.
To check the firmware and IP Address of the printer print a configuration page by pressing and holding down green button for 6 to 7 seconds

YOU WILL NEED DRIVERS FOR THAT DEVICE.

WWW.HP.COM/MAC
HP OFFICEJET PRO DRIVERS MAC 7780
OR

AND

CONTROL PANAL GO INTO NETWORKING AND SHARING FOLDER

PRINTING SHARING, OR PROPERTIES SETTING NEED TO BE CHANGED

DOES THE SYSTEM SUPPORT WIFI

MAKE SURE THAT THE ANTIVURAS PROGRAM AND FIREWALL IS HAS STOPPED YOU SCANNER TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE MACHINE, JUST SOME FINE TUNNING IN THE FIRE WALL MAYBE ALL IT IS.

Hp officejet 6110 won't print


No, I don't think it is.
Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Pixma IP 4200 does not print


On the first question it sounds like the Mac might have a problem with its port. Check cable, try another device in that port. You really should ask around on a Mac site as this is not a printer problem since it works on another machine.

For the second person, you're using the machine plugged into a network? Is it plugged into router? If you're having an IP address conflict, you can get the problems you're describing. Make sure that you use a static IP address that is much higher address than any dynamic machines might be assigned.

For example, if you're using dynamic IPs, for example in the area of 192.168.1.100 and up. If you have four OTHER devices on your network, they may be 192.168.1.101, .102, .103, .104. So, the highest IP address they should be assigned is 192.168.1.104. Too allow for guest IP addresses, you should set your printer to be 192.168.1.109 so none of your devices or a guests device will ever be able to have a conflicting address.
