    Can you tell us, what is the error do you get in revert when you try to print something from your windows computer?

    So we can help you better.

    During that time, you may also try the following steps:

    • Open the print queue window.
    • Cancel All Print Services.
    • Power off the hp printer & Computer for one minute and then power them back on.
    • Now Wait For 3 Minutes, So your printer and computer can communicate with each other.

    Once you get the blue or green light on your hp printer, you should try to print something from your windows computer.

    When I try to print something from my windows computer, it is giving me two different error messages.

    Sometimes, It is showing Unable to print & sometimes it shows hp printer won’t print due to the communication problem.

    Also, I tried the steps given by you. Yes! I can see a solid green light on my printer. But still not printing.

    When you get unable to print error from your hp printer. It can be due to the few causes:

    •  Communication Problem
    • HP Printer is offline.

    Here are some steps to fix the hp printer is not printing problem:

    Communication Problem – Make sure your printer and windows ten pc is in the same network.

    If they both connect from the different network. You need to go ahead and connect with the same network. For brief information, you may visit:

    To check the printer communication problem. You may also run the hp scan doctor tool.

    Driver issue- 

    Sometimes, hp printer won’t print from windows ten pc due to the outdated driver or some other issues.

    So you should uninstall the printer driver from your printer, and download the latest driver from hp official website.

    After downloading the printer software, you should try to install hp printer again. I am sure; it will start working fine.

    As far as I can understand, there is a communication problem between your printer and windows computer. That’s why your hp printer is not printing any paper.

    So will suggest you visit: hp printer is saying offline and follow the steps given there. I am sure this will fix the problem.

    Recently, I was going through hp printer, not printing issue due to the cartridge problem. I have a Hp Deskjet printer.

    I was unable to print from my printer just because of my cartridge was not installed correctly.

    I removed the ink cartridge from my hp printer and installed it into it back again.

    Right after that, my printer has started working fine.

    That’s why I Would like to Suggest you remove the ink cartridge for once and Install it again.

    I hope this will resolve “hp printer won’t print” problem for you as well.

    I had tried everything but won’t able to print through my Hp printer. I am a tech-savvy guy, but I failed that day.

    Finally, I called a professional guy at home. He charged me for solving the problem. I asked him where was the problem, and I got surprised.

    My printer connection wire broke from internally. It happens if something heavy objects placed on it.

    By mistake, I did put my chair on it. It causes broke the wire.

    So, if nothing works try to change hp printer connection wire also. Might possible it will work.

    Here are some guides to fix the hp printer won’t print problem. You can use them to correct the problem.

    1. Reboot the printer and computer once.
    2. Check the cable connection between computer and printer if you have a network printer. You should check the network connection.
    3. Let’s make a test print from the printer or make a copy to check the printer hardware problem if it prints a test paper. Then your printer is working fine. There is a communication gap. That’s why your hp printer won’t print.

    If these steps don’t help you.

    You need to uninstall the printer from your computer and reinstall it on your computer.

    It will fix the problem.
