HP 8710/iMac Issue
After several days of off again, on again functionality, I have come to this conclusion. The problem is in my iMac, not the network and not the printer. Two weeks ago I was convinced it was the printer, so I quickly ordered a new HP 8710 so I could just swap the old 8710 out. Ultimately, the brand new one started doing exactly what the old one was doing.
On Tuesday I ran this test. (All sent to the HP 8710 wirelessly)
-Print from my 6th gen iPad. OK
-Print from my iPhone X. OK
-Print from my wife’s iPhone X. OK
-Print from wife’s MacBook Pro (running High Sierra, latest update) OK
All of those worked perfectly.
-Print from my iMac (running High Sierra, latest update)
Error. Cannot find, connect, or in any other way, play with the 8710.
I can print to my Epson 837 wirelessly from my iMac without an issue.
Added HP Smart app on my iMac and things started working yesterday. Was able to do multiple prints, Perhaps it was rebooting my iMac, which I have done numerous times. Perhaps the HP Smart app. Whatever, it worked. This morning, the first chance I had to print, it was back to a “no go” situation. And I just printed this off from my iPhone without an issue.
So, this is where I stand. What in the name of all that is good, has been corrupted in my OS? Looking to upgrade to Mojave, but don’t want to drag the problem across and have the same situation. Any thoughts? At all?
