Has your HP printer stopped printing or scanning after you recently updated the Windows 10 version? Well then here are a few troubleshooting ideas that can get your printer back on its form. But if you are unable to take a follow up through this text-based process, you can call HP Printer Support round the clock for any sort of issues related to your HP printer.
After you have successfully installed Windows 10 and executed it, always make sure to restart your PC or laptop at least once. Under the Windows button, select the power button and click on restart.
If the problem still persists, you need to check and ensure that the HP Printer is compatible with Windows 10 and whether it has received updates for the same.
If the compatibility test is a success, download and execute the Microsoft Windows Troubleshooter. Now identify, rectify and resolve the problem associated with your HP printer using this firmware. Your problem must be solved by running the troubleshooter. If not so, proceed to the next step.
Uninstall the current HP Printing software and search for the latest updates related for your printer from the HP Website. Download the software driver under the Printers section on the website. Search and type your HP model on the search bar and then download the latest driver updates link and run it.
If your printer was manufactured before 2010, you may be experiencing the malfunctioning of HP Solutions centers which says ‘HP Solution Center stopped working’ or ‘HP Solution Center cannot run’ or ‘Scan is busy or in use’.
Generally, HP Solution Center is automatically installed along with the compete HP Printer driver package. This Solution Center is not available for Mac users who can rather use HP Utility Tools which provide the same features. This is the prime center for carrying out all the troubleshooting regarding your HP printer and if you can’t find it after updating Windows 10, ensure to restart your PC.
If your printer was manufactured after 2009, you are perhaps familiar with the software HP Printer Assistant which enables you to carry out the Printer setup, scanning, ordering supplies, checking ink levels and more. If after updating, this icon disappears then you can :
- Try reinstalling the HP Printer software drive again.
- Reconnect the printer and restart it along with restarting your computer.
- Uninstall the prevailing driver software and install the latest available HP Printer software from the HP Website.
- Again restart the printer and the computer.
- Your problem must be solved and you can again see the HP Printer Assistant icon. Now you can carry out with the troubleshooting.
