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.

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.

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.

Run Software Update. It will only download the needed files for just the printers you have installed. For me,it only required about 62MB to update my specific drivers to 2.12. The large file is useful for site installations where a large selection of HP printers need to be supported, or if you are preparing a Mac for someone else and aren't sure what specific model they might have now or in the future.

Monkeyjunkey: Priab doesn't mention not having an Internet connection, not sure how/why you presume that. And if you don't have Internet, then it wouldn't matter, because without Internet, you wouldn't be able to download any file, whether it's 400MB, 40MB or 4MB. If you are in a situation where you don't have a connection and need your driver 'in hand', then yes, one 'could' argue carrying around one 400MB file that supports ALL HP printers versus a smaller one that is just for one model is more cumbersome...but given the price and availability of gigabyte size flash drives and hi speed internet, I'd rather have the 400MB file and be prepared for any HP model I might right into rather than the one driver for one model. What if I run into another printer, or the model is wrong?

It is seeing the printer but the printer is not responding, even when plugged in by USB. HP has told me to delete the original driver for 2600n, but I am not sure where this is located and the exact file to delete. We do not have the software to reinstall the printer so I'm hesitant to delete without knowing the exact folder that needs to go. Can anyone help?

After downloading these, printing was broken on my LaserJet CP1515n, every time it would crash. I went to 'Print & Scan Preferences', clicked on the printer icon and got the message that 'The Printer Driver Was Installed Incorrectly, Repair?', clicking 'Yes' gave me the message that 'Permissions were being repaired' after which printing returned to normal. However, I then ran Permissions Repair in System Preferences, to see if it threw up a string of incorrect permissions, as it did with the last HP drivers from Apple, (which it did), and printing was broken again! Apple really need to get their HP drivers sorted, this is not good! Is there any way that I can run Permissions Repair without including the printer drivers?

I believe the problem may not be in the PPDs, it may be in the new versions of the HP extensions that the 2.10 package puts into System/Library/Extensions. I solved the problem by replacing these extensions from a recent backup. I also replaced the HP folder in Library/Printers by the previous version from Backup. So it may be these files that are not good with snow leopard.

I would agree with the other two replies here. I've used HP photosmart printers for a while now without any issues.

I have bought the photosmart 7510 as a replacement for the c5180 that died after four years, and haven't had a bit of issues, even worked out of the box with my iPhone.

To those saying you've had no issues with your printers, that's great for you. But try sharing the printers between Macs and PCs and then you'll have a different opinion. Also, to those saying it's because of using old drivers or hardware, that's not true. This has happened to my clients, friends and family with brand new HP computers with the latest drivers from HP. I've seen this going on for years and years with scores of people. Sometimes the HP printers do work fine, but all too often I've seen extremely frustrated people have issues with HP printers on the Macs whether dealing with scanning, sharing or just trying to look at their cryptic support on their website.

My fellow employees (Six in the same mixed environments at 21 locations) have not reported any major software issues, only hardware issues where consumer units are purchased or the printers are kept way too long. That said, several of the locations are running HP 4000n and 2100n models, which have required only drum replacements or roller kits during that 10 year period.

Gggvt, it sounds like they were probably all hooked up to a printer server in that environment. I'm talking about in homes where you want to share an HP printer from a PC to a Mac. Once again, have seen very spotty results for many years with many people. I cringe when I see an HP nowadays because of this. I see apologists in here that keep trying to infer it's because the printers are "old", etc. - But, I've seen the same issue with NEW and old HP's. Usually, the main problem is the multi-function printers that don't play nice. I've been working with a brand new HP printer and brand new Mac Mini for a client and that HP consisently stops allowing access to its scanner. The problem occurred for a previous IT person as well, so it's not just me. On the other hand, with brands, I never have these hassles... the printers/scanners just work.

Hi Fellow MACers, so here's the latest as of 10/31/2011. I just purchased a MacBookPro O/S Lion and tried to add it to a small business network running Windows XP and an HP 1200n BusinessJet. After 4 or 5 hours on the phone with MyApple Support and the HP Business Support, the most recent HP printer drivers update for LION will not work for any HP printer with a model number lower than 2500. HP will no longer support any of their printers with a model number smaller than 2500 for LION. So, if HP decided not to support my small business, then I have decided not to support HP. I just purchased a new Brother MFC-J6710DW and tossed my HP in the garbage. The Brother is wireless and operates on both Windows XP and Lion O/S with full support for both systems. HP has made some poor business decisions. Maybe Meg Whitman can help fix things there. Sadly, it"s too late for me. I'm a Brother customer now.

HP as always done amazing things for me and the support makes Brother seem like a beginner at what they try to do.... funny how we have different issues, and come up with different answers. That is the way I have to look at it, since I wasted several thousands of $$ on Brother. Now it goes to HP.

I had the same problem. I've thought the printer was dead. What I've done is to throw in the rubbish and uninstall every things who was associated with HP: Users/(your name)/Library/Printers and Macintosh HD/Library/Printers. The only thing you must to keep is the PPDs file. After this, go to System Preference/Print & Scan. Click on the HP printer and click on "–" to leave it blank. Then, install the original driver for your printer, MAC OS X will recognize your printer (just go again in System Preference after the installation and you will see your printer). After this of course, you should never install again the Apple HP Printer Drivers. Hope this gonna help you.

My HP Laserjet 1022 does not work properly and has not been working properly since 10.6 now we are at 10.7 and I still don't have any working drivers for this otherwise fully functional and working machine. Apple / HP, whoever is organizing this: Please give the coder guys in korea a call and let them write decent drivers for the HP LJ 1022. Thanks! P.S.: Or is this intended? You want me to buys a new printer? Ok then, well it's not gonna be an HP printer this time.

Ironically enough, the only way I am able to get my HP LJ 1018 to work is by using the drivers for the 1022. Go figure. Maybe's worth a shot trying the 1018 drivers… maybe the HP coder guys got 'em mixed up… LOL

What does this update do? Half a gig download, 600 MB install and the software in Applications was not changed. How can drivers take up 600 MB?

The new HP Laserjet 1022 driver is awful. It is very slow when you want to print - it takes almost a minute or two to do copying before trying to print. This is really bad because if your print job is big, it takes forever. The first when it happened I thought MacBook hung - and later only I realize that this is causing the problem.

I have the same printer and the strong feeling HP want's us to buy a new machine - simply by providing broken drivers. Or their testing department is on crack. I'm not sure which is the case.

Total, utter, worthless garbage! This update has made my HP printer utterly useless for anything other than 8x11.5 paper and #10 envelopes. I print to odd sized envelopes regularly and especially at Christmas time, and this update either prints AFTER the envelope has left the printer blank or refuses to print, claiming a paper error due to wrong size! I'm going to have to junk this piece of HP trash and never, ever buy another.

See that is where you are in error. You should only install the drivers you need from the Printer PrefPane and then update and you will get only updates for applicably installed drivers. Unless you want the whole shebang...

Thanks to this update, or at least the smaller version I downloaded via Apple Software Update, I can now scan again using my PSC 1210 with my MacBook running OS 10.6.4. And scan pretty well with some nice customizable features! HP dropped scanning for this series of all-in-ones starting with OS 10.5, and the previous version of software from Apple didn't have it either! So, thanks Apple! And thanks for nothing HP. My next printer or scanner will not be an HP!

I use 10.6.4 and HP LaserJet P1006 which is connected to Airport Express. Before this update I had problems using it- If you disconnect printer and reconnect it you couldn't use it via Airport Express but had to connect it via USB directly to Mac, print and then connect it to AE. It was really pain in the a**, but now with this update everything works great, no need to connect it directly to mac!

Printer are dirt cheap. They make their money selling frequently needed inks. You use the damn thing a few weeks now and then and it's thirsty. Refill time requires a bank loan.... I suspect it is easier to buy a new printer when the ink runs out and then you get the latest drivers and oodles of useless software designed to impress (but which you never use). This is my opinion.

Same issue. I've now installed it five times now. I suspect we all also have installed the "drivers" (i.e. big bloated crapware package - almost 500MB!) for a new HP All-In-One, or something similar. I haven't found a fix yet either, except for telling Software Update to ignore the update. I really wish Apple would release an update that included these drivers, so that this issue would stop and I could uninstall all that HP junk!

I get the same thing. I've updated the driver many times...same result. The only thing that fixed it was to completely uninstall the printer and all of the HP applications then add the printer back without the applications. But that's not really a fix because as soon as you add the applications back (printer monitor, scanner, etc.) you get the: "Software updates are available for your computer. Do you want to install them?". Not a big deal....just annoying.

The Stapler/Stacker attachment still doesn't work on my HP LaserJet 4200. HP won't even take a bug report for the newly purchased stapler/stacker because it is attached to an out of warrantee printer. Never mind they were perfectly willing to sell me the stapler/stacker for the out of warranty printer, they just didn't explain that there would be no support attached for a printer the stapler/stacker lists as supported. By the way, it is a driver issue. This stapler/stacker works perfectly fine under WIndows. But on the mac, attempts to print multiple copies of a document each individually stapled results in all the copies being stapled together by a single staple.
