If you're getting an error about the connection you have to make sure that the USB cable (if connected by USB) is plugged in correctly, or you may try reseating it.Unplug the USB cable. Reconnect the USB cable to the back of the printer and plug the other end to a USB slot in the computer. Make sure that you hear a sound in the pc when you connect the USB, that means that your pc has detected something. Also try downloading a Print Diagnostic Utility from HP website, this tool is pretty useful printing probems.HP website, then click on Support and Drivers, then go to Download software and drivers, key in the product name and hit enter. Choose your OS and hit next, click on Utility and Diagnostic Tools and click on HP Print Diagnostic Utility.
If connected wirelessly, you can also try the HP Print Diagnostic Utility. If you get an error on connectivity, make sure that the printer and the computer are on the same IP address. If both have the same IP address and your pc still can't detect the printer try updating the software by downloading it from HP website.

HP Officejet 6500 a plus won't print. Every time I press print, it says incorrect paper size. What is wrong?


This is one of the common connectivity issues marring the benefits of having a wireless printer. In this situation your printer will not print when connected wirelessly but would need you to set it up with your system using a USB cable. Try resetting the IP of your system to what is mentioned in the printer and in case there is a router connecting your printer and system then use the IP address of router and put it in your system. This should help you fix this printer issues.

HP Officejet 6500 will not print after sleep mode


Move the printer to a different location and keep it closer to the connected device (e.g. router) and away from large metal objects / other electromagnetic devices for stronger signal strength.

Printer status says offline, and we can not print on laptop


Hi!
If you're offline with the printer, you definitely won't be able to print.

I'm assuming you're using Windows XP here. Most Windows products will be similar...

On the laptop, click on the Start button, then Settings, then Printers and Faxes. Find your printer in the list, right-click on it and click "Use Online" or uncheck the "Offline" box.

Good luck! Remember to rate the solutions!
