HP Printers and the Mac has always been very troublesome for the multitudes of people I've known to use them. Scanner functions will come and go with the tide, forget about printer sharing over wireless being consistent with some HP models (if it works at all) between Macs & PCs. I feel like HP treats Mac users as second class citizens and I refuse to buy their printer products because of it.

Thanks for sharing, While you are trying to fix hp printer is offline error So as to resolve it reinstall the equivalent interface the printer to your PC and with the USB link and turn it on. On the off chance that you don't need to introduce it utilizing the internet browser on your PC.

So, today MU 'reposted' this HP PRinter Driver 5.1 update, rebranding it with a December 27, 2018 date. This update was released by Apple on October 24, 2017 (2017, not 2018), making it over a year old. Don't believe me? Here's the link: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1888?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US So, does MU know this update is 14 months old and decided to repost it anyway with today's date? Or MU doesn't realize it is not a new update? Either way that doesn't say much about the MU internal process. I've seen many instances of updates on MU being reposted as 'new' but are really old updates, or updates that were released weeks or months before the posting date on MU, as if MU just got around to it or wasn't aware until much after the fact that an update was available. I know I'm not the only one who has noticed and commented on this. conversely, there are important updates that users should be notified about immediately that MU isn't even aware of. I think MU relies mainly on user posts to be alerted when new updates are available. And MU wonders why people don't pluck down money for the paid version of the MU software/service. The only rational explanation I can think of as to why MU reposts old updates as new, is the argument that it is a public service to make people aware of important updates, so it triggers or comes up on peoples watch list. But that is bogus, because for the people that already have the update, it's wasting their time to receive a notices about old updates, only to find they already have that update, and in most cases, like this one, received it AGES AGO (in software time). Now, it is true HP no longer provides drivers for out of the box anymore or directly online. If you purchase an HP in the last year or so, you are instructed to visit the HP website and are guided to download the terrible HP Easy Start software, which is nothing but a downloader stub. The problem with that is the Easy Start stub not only downloads the proper driver, but then proceeds to insist on installing tons of crap ware, 'customer feedback' software (aka telemetry spyware), and sign you up for the HP ink program, and so on. Good luck trying to locate the actual downloaded driver files only if you want to keep a copy for later offline install or backup. so, definitely, get a copy of the version 5.1 if you don't already have it, it will likely be the last from Apple. Fortunately, there hasn't been any radical change in the printer driver architecture under OSX / macOS, and at least for me, the drivers on this 5.1 update have worked on every release from Mavericks to Mojave. AVOID the HP Easy Start downloader if you can.

I've been told since I posted this, it's no big deal, just let the macOS software update detect your printer and download the necessary drivers. Here's the problem with that; in my experience, especially with AIO or multifunction printers, macOS only downloads a generic or basic driver that allows for basic printing. Advanced features may not be supported (align print heads, check supply level, 2-sided printing). Even Apple's own Image Capture program may not detect the scanner component of the multi function printer., or if it does, you don't get all the options; same with the fax function. This is much like Windows 10, where the drivers downloaded from Microsoft based on auto detection of printers is often generic, and isn't as full featured as the manufacturer's specific drivers for the same printer.

MacUpdate.com has a vast selection of applications listed on it. Some of them have certain means to check for updates automatically, but a lot of the applications require manual checks from time to time. This was the case with Apple HP Printer Drivers - there's nothing that could've let us know about the update at the time it came out. Later on, while doing a manual check for some of the apps we updated this one and to let our users know about it we set the date of the update to that exact day we updated it pushing this app to the top of macupdate.com's homepage so all interested in this app could see it.

BE CAREFUL! I'm running OS X 10.7.5 and can no longer print PDFs. Microsoft Word and Open Office documents seem to print fine, but I'm stuck with PDFs, and that's a problem for me! This is my work computer too, so I'm struggling trying to downgrade to version 2.14 which worked fine. ver. 2.16.1 is going on a 20+ hour productivity killer for me. Should have left well enough alone when the update came out, and will not be making this mistake again. Lord willing I'm not looking at another 20 hours of tinkering here...

Since buying a WiFi Photosmart D110, printing has been a nightmare. I consistently have to restart the printer and or the MacBook Pro to get it to work, and then sometimes it still doesn't work. I usually resort to my old non-HP laser black & white out of frustration. I install all the updates as well as delete and re-add the printer queues. Sometimes it works, then when trying the second print job, oh the pain. The Wifi network recognizes the printer is there, but the printer usually can't start, and HP's software says it can't find the printer, despite its appearance on the network. The HP updates don't seem to be much help. I always install the most recent, hoping that it will cure this temperamental beast. I really wonder if HP really tests these things on real Macs.

Not sure if this is some sort of joke from HP - I can't laugh. The LaserJet 1022 has been listed as supported for 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8 for years now. Fact is, it has never really worked. See HPs compatibility info: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01664444&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=439323#N2444 It prints one page and then spits out blank pages and all three lights start blinking. If it wasn't me who owned a 1022 this might be funny.

I have recently retired my old 1022nw printer and I like you think that this should be delisted from the HP drivers page as it's not worked for years!. If you really need to use the printer, then the only reliable way is to us the CUPS driver available in Gutenprint. I have since upgraded to the P1102w which I am very happy with and works great with the HP driver.

The Hp Printers work great in ML and Snowleopard as I have anHp Printer on one of my iMacs the other has a Brother Printer. They both have never failed me and I can't say enough about HP support desk at HP for Mac. They are superlative.

Mountain Lion, Officejet Pro 8500, wireless connection. The first driver update in quite some time that did NOT require a re-install/ set-up of the printer. All features work OK --though ML scanning is a minor PIA due to the loss of TWAIN

New to Apple, I can't seem to get my Canon MX860 or my HP Laserjet P1102w to work by wi-fi? I have to turn off and turn on the HP before the iMac finds it each time I print. The iMac can't seem to find the Canon MX860.

Actually, there are many frequent problems affect the performance of HP Pavilion laptops, and there are solutions too for such issues. But troubleshooting is the main challenge for a common user, so right here few guidelines have been given for troubleshooting HP pavilion problems with https://www.hptechnicalsupportphonenumbersusa.com/blog/fix-hp-printer-troubleshooter-error-0x803c010b-on-windows/

This driver leads to repeated interruption of printer connection if printers are connected to a wireless server, in my case Apple Airport Extreme. The issue affects at least Mountain Lion users, perhaps earlier OSs as well. Do not update, if possible. Waiting for a new update to solve the issue of this update. (:
