Questions & Answers for HP - Envy 4500 Wireless e-All-in-One Printer - Black

Question

How can I keep the Envy 4500 printer from "going to sleep"

My 4500 goes off almost as soon as I print something and before I can get the next things ready to print. Is there a setting to control this?

You can't prevent it all together from going into Sleep Mode, but you can set it to go to Sleep up to 15 mins of non activity. Home>Preferences>Sleep>Select the time you prefer

If it is going to sleep in under 5 mins then you may have a bigger issue.

I print wirelessly from my iPad and it's never been an issue. I literally don't check if it's asleep or not. I just hit print and it searches, connects, prints... and s little while later, my daughter shows up bearing my documents (the printer is in her bedroom).

Yes, you can print wireless. Your iPad wireless is all you need. I don't have iStuff, I have Samsung, but yours should work. On your iPad, goto Networks, where you should be able to add the printer. My HP plugin driver only has options: Number of copies, color (black white or color), Page size (Legal, 4x6, 5x7, etc), and Orientation (portrait or landscape)
Good luck!

If I understand your question, the font size is controlled by the document settings on your computer. The printer prints what you send to it from your computer.

Question

wireless signal lost

I hooked this up to manufacturer instructions and had success. As the printer is in Fla we only use a couple times a year. Last week it did not work and the Laptop did not pick up a wireless single from the printer. What should I do next to reestablish a hand shake?
Thanks, Tim

re-establishing the connection is pretty simple go to your control panel, click on printers and devices, right click on your printer and click on trouble shoot (let it do its thing) and your connection will be restored (make sure the printer is already on when you do the troubleshooting)

Try this:
1) On the main menu scroll all the way down and select wireless.
2) Click on "Wireless Setup Wizard"
3) When you see your network enter the password. (If you have one)
4) If everything goes OK the wireless light should have the LED next to it solid blue.

Hope it helps

answer 6
Reinstall the printer drivers. If it was awhile you might have done something to your network or the printer might have just forgotten its configurations. Wireless printers are inherently unstable in wireless mode.

You can fix this by getting a wireless adapter which will plug wired into the printer and then serve the printer wirelessly on your network in a more competent fashion. But that's up to you. I generally don't trust wireless printers to remain on the network without tinkering. they always have issues.

Sometimes all it takes is a power outage.
