Q: Trying to connect my Windows 10 laptop to HP Deskjet 2720 printer. Using an HP accounts it starts the set up process but then cannot find the connection even though it has shown me the printer model. Tried resetting the printer but the computer still won't find it. How can I fix this?

A: Try the following fixes:

1) Change the USB port - connect your printer to another USB port of your computer.
2) Don't plug your printer into the computer's USB port until the installer asks you to do it.
3) Reboot your computer & printer and then try to install it again.
4) If the above three fixes do not work for you then you'll have to install the printer manually using its basic driver (2700 series driver): HP deskjet 2700 basic driver

  1. I have a HP Deskjet 3720 All-In-One Series

    I have recetnly changed my wi-fi router and now the printer doesn’t work.

    How do I change the printer settings so it recognizes the new network and connects to my computer.

    • Download the printer driver from its official website, double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions. If you cannot find the driver then let me know and I’ll arrange it for you. Also let me know the model number of your printer so that I can send you the complete instructions to install the printer.

  2. Hi, I have a HP Photosmart B110 all-in-one series printer. It now fails to connect to my wireless despite recognising the SSID, and me entering the correct WPA. It has run fine for number of years, and I have not changed anything on the router.
    I ran a test report and it says PASS for everything except “No Filtering – FAIL”.

    I have tried the default reset, but just cannot get it to connect.

    Grateful for any assistance.

    • I suggest that you reinstall your printer. Uninstall the printer first, then install it again using USB cable and then convert the installation “USB to Wireless” connectivity.

  3. Hi, I have a Laserjet Pro MFP M148dw printer and a HP Color Laserjet Pro M255dw printers. Worked fine with BT Hub router until I changed to Virgin. All handsets, laptop and ipad connects to Virgin wifi and internet. Not so the printers. The wifi indicator blinks in blue with the yellow/amber flasing.
    I have tried everything possible to connect to wifi but failing. Tried even the ethernet connection direct to router but no joy. Can you help please?

    • I suggest that you to reset the network settings using the above given steps. Then uninstall all the printer drivers from the computer. After that reinstall it using latest driver. Please let me know if you are having trouble in finding drivers.

  4. Hi, I have the HP ENVY 6010 printer, I recently moved it from my work to my home and obviously it needs wifi, how do I go about changing the wifi on it?

    • You can reconnect directly with your new WiFi from your printer, but there are some more settings (IP Address settings) that you have to change it in computer which is a lengthy and tricky process. Instead of changing the WiFi settings, why won’t you reinstall your printer from scratch?

  5. HP 5744 will no longer connect to WiFi. Nothing changed ie location, router… I did the network settings reset. Suggestions?

  6. I have an HP Deskjet 2752. We recently reset our wifi and now my printer won’t connect to my computer. I tried pressing the cancel and wireless buttons together a few times but that didn’t work.

    • While resetting your router, the IP address of the router, SSID and password got changed, which is why your printer got disconnected. To fix this issue, you’ll have to reinstall your printer driver from the scratch.

  10. Hello Goodnight! Please, I won an HP photosmart 7660 and never managed to use it. It has an error message on the display (it says that the cartridge has failed, but I have already tested new ones and the message continues), this makes it impossible for me to reset the printer using the buttons. How do I reset the printer without using the screen?

    Olá, Boa noite! Por favor, eu ganhei uma HP photosmart 7660 e nunca conseguir usar. Ela tem uma mensagem de erro no visor (diz que o cartucho falhou, mas eu ja testei outros novos e a mensagem continua),isso me impossibilita resetar pelos botoes.

    • If you are unable to use the printer screen due to an error message then you can follow the following steps.

      1) Do power drain your printer – Here’s how:
      2) Open the printer and make sure there is no paper jam there.
      3) Make sure all the doors are closed properly.
      4) Align the cartridge – go to the printer settings and align the cartridge from option given there in printer settings under maintenance.

I’ve tried resetting my wifi, connecting printer to wifi via USB, and tried the trick for the printer at the top of this page. Also tried to install printer through the HP installer app but when I try to connect the printer to the computer with a USB it says not recognized. Would love some help!

  13. I have installed the driver. I’m attempting to connect the printer when the installer is prompting me to. It does not recognize via wireless connection so then I’m instructed to connect via USB. This is why I’m not sure what to do next.

  14. My printer HP LaserJet P1102w wifi is not showing in my android phone, and also my printer is not connecting to my laptop. When I installed driver in the laptop and connecting printer to laptop it’s showing unknown device. Your help is highly appreciated.

I try to reset by pressing the X and Wifi button for 5 second, remove the printer from my laptop, and then re install, but it keeps on giving the same result. Do you have any suggestion? Thank you

    • 1) Was it reinstalled successfully? – the driver installer has found the printer through WiFi?
      2) Does it give any error message when you give it a print command?

I’ve tried everything and more to connect but still not having it? I’ve tried WPS method. The printer is right next to the printer, I’m very close to smashing it with a hammer?
    Video tutorials, still not working?

    • This happens because your printer has old Wi-Fi/ router settings, but your Wi-Fi router has been changed with the new one. It should have worked when you reset the Wi-Fi settings in the printer. If it doesn’t work then you can go with a method that will convert your USB connection to Wi-Fi.

      What you will have to do is uninstall the previously installed printer driver from the control panel and install the fresh printer through USB cable using its driver’s CD. We are sharing this method’s (Convert USB to Wi-Fi) video tutorial below, please follow the tutorial’s instructions carefully:

      After that you can easily migrate the USB connection to Wi-Fi. This method will take your Wi-Fi settings from your computer and transfer it to your printer through the USB cable. It is the easiest way to install printer through Wi-Fi.
