Hi vlewis, if you are trying to print directly from your Pavillion to your Officejet wirelessly, you should set an AdHoc type of connection. but if you have a wireless router that you are connecting to, you should have an Infrastructure type of wireless connection. here are some key points you may need to look at.

AdHoc (PC to Computer wireless printing)

1.make sure that the wireless adapter on both devices are turned on.
2.the wireless network name or the SSID should be the same with both devices.
3.you will have to set the same wireless security (like WEP or WPA depending on the capability of the devices)
4.install the printer drivers and utility and make sure that your printer utility shows connection to the computer

i will follow this one up for infrastructure.

I keep getting a printer jam error for the hp officejet 8500 wireless, no paper jam, have done everything HP suggests and still won't work. Can anyone suggest what to do other than buy a new printer?


Hi
This is a coomon problem with the printer the best thing to do is call HP and advise them of the issue. I recently had a customer who did this and even know it was out of warranty they replaced the printer.

Thanks

Wireless printing impossible . How can I solve it?


Hi Paul,

Am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but your printer is not a wireless printer by default. If you would like to be able to print wirelessly and have a bluetooth connection on your laptop/desktop, you have the option of buying an adapter.

The HP bt300 wireless printer adapter uses Bluetooth wireless technology allowing you to print without using a cable. In general, Bluetooth wireless technology is a short range wireless technology that allows connection between devices without requiring a cable. By using your HP bt300, printing is possible from a camera phone, PDA, digital camera, or computer (currently to a computer using the Windows operating system only) to selected HP printers.

Unfortunately, this adapter runs about 145-153$ not including shipping or handling. Am probably giving myself a two star rating by saying this, but your best bet might be to just purchase a wireless printer. I have a wireless 3-in-1 (scan/fax/print) that I bought for about 120$ and it works like a dream. Check out your local Office Depot or Best Buy and take a look.

Hope this helps!

HP Officejet Print Cartridges


I figured out my problem. My son-in-law help me set everything up including my wireless router and wireless printer. The printer was turned on, but the print cartridge holder had not been aligned. When I turned it off and started it up again, it went through the alignment process and move the cartrigde holder to the right position. The cartridges popped into place just where they needed to be.
