    Important: The installer might ask if you want to check online for the latest installation updates for your product. For the best installation results, HP recommends that you click “Yes” to let the installer check for updates and download them for you.
For some products, Windows 7 comes with a basic driver built into the operating system (in-OS driver). If your computer is low on hard disk space, you might prefer to use the in-OS driver.
With this basic driver, the buttons on the printer do not function and some of the advanced product features are not available. However, using the workaround procedures in this document, you can still scan from a software program.
NOTE:When you connect the USB cable to the printer and to the computer, Windows 7 detects the hardware, and then automatically installs the correct driver. After a few moments, the HP Smart Install program begins. The following steps describe how to override that process, so that you can continue installing the basic print driver in Windows 7.With a Windows 7 in-OS installation, you do not have to download any software or insert the printer CD.
Follow these steps to install the basic driver in Windows 7.
  1. Press the Power button () or switch to turn off the product.
  2. Disconnect the USB cable from both the product and the computer, if you already connected it.
  3. Press the Power button or switch to turn on the product.
  4. Reconnect the USB cable to the product and to the computer.
  5. Windows 7 begins to install the in-OS driver. After a few moments, the HP Smart Install program begins. After the HP Smart Install program extracts the setup files, click Cancel to stop the HP Smart Install program.
  6. In the Windows 7 installation, a Your devices are ready to use window might open. If the window opens and does not close automatically, close the window.
    Your basic Windows 7 driver is now installed. Some product functions might not be available, but you can use the following workaround procedures instead.

If your printer was set up and working with Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard or OS X v10.7 Lion, your printer continues to work as it did before you updated your Mac to the OS X v10.10 Yosemite, OS X v10.9 Mavericks or OS X v10.8 Mountain Lion operating system. The HP printer driver and software you previously installed update automatically during the operating system update process.
If you are installing your printer for the first time on a Mac running OS X v10.10 Yosemite, OS X v10.9 Mavericks or OS X v10.8 Mountain Lion, AirPrint is the default method to install and create a printer queue for your printer. An HP Printer Driver Update is available via Apple Software Update (ASU) so you can switch from AirPrint to the HP printer driver. ASU automatically downloads the software. For AirPrint, the printer must already be set up on a wireless network.
With Mountain Lion and Mavericks, adding an AirPrint-enabled printer is a quick and easy way to use your printer without installing a driver. AirPrint provides basic functionality for printers that are connected to a wireless or wired (Ethernet) network.
AirPrint is not available if the printer connects to the Mac, an AirPort Base Station, or a Time Capsule with a USB cable.
Try to connect your printer to the wireless network with the WPS method first. If your printer is already connected to a wired (Ethernet) or wireless method, choose a different method.
Follow these steps to install the printer using a WPS-enabled router.
NOTE:If your router does not support Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), use the wireless setup method using a USB cable.

Step 1: Prepare for installation

  1. Make sure that your network is already set up: Before you can install the printer, your wireless network must be set up. Follow the instructions that came with your router or access point to set up the wireless network.
  2. Make sure that your wireless-capable printer, router, and computer are all turned on, and that the computer is connected to the wireless network.
  3. Exit all applications running on your computer.
  4. Turn off the Wireless setting. If the Wireless light is on, press the Wireless button () on the printer control panel to turn off Wireless.

Step 2: Connect to the wireless network

Select the option that you want to use to connect your printer to the wireless network, and then follow the instructions.
If your wireless router supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), this is the simplest way to set up the printer on a wireless network.
NOTE:This method requires a WPS-enabled wireless router to connect to the printer.
  1. Press the WPS button on your wireless router.
  2. On the printer control panel, press the Wireless button (). The wireless light starts to blink.
  3. Wait up to two minutes while the printer establishes a network connection with the wireless router.
    NOTE:If the WiFi-Protected Setup (WPS) method is not successful, try another connection method.
Follow these steps to install the printer using the Wireless Client Setup Assistant in Airport Utility v 5.6.
NOTE:Airport Utility v 5.6 is the last version that supports the Wireless Client Setup Assistant. If you have a newer version, choose a different method to connect your printer to a wireless network.
