Latest firmware installed?

Have you unplugged and let it sit it for 10 minutes?
That was the recommended fix when our Epson started printing VERY slowly after a Win10 update.... ::)

Good luck with it gronk....

Firmware ? Dunno...I uninstalled it off the computer and reinstalled it with drivers from the HP site.
I unplugged it and let it sit for hours.

I can make it print, but not the normal way......I can make it scan to computer, but not the normal way.

I can deposit it into the bin if it ceases to work at all !! ;D ;D

Firmware and drivers are two different things...

Sometimes you can update the firmware directly on the machine, under something like a ‘system’ menu option...

If you could update firmware on the printer, how could you do it if it doesn't recognise the computer ?  Haven't seen anything in the menu ?

A firmware update from some brands and models can sometimes recognise that compatable cartridges are installed and lock them out of use. I'd take care if doing one of them.

Have you reset the network itself on the printer?  Cant remember if I asked.

I disconnected it from the network and let it reinstall......the printer knows it's on the network, but says no computer found when you try and scan to computer.
