from last 2 days iam trying to download the drivers hp officejet 4500. but i am not able to find correct drivers wich is suitable for my laptop.i am using windows 7. can you please help me out.
erfan – you could use the free drivers scan (use the download link above) to find which exact drivers you need. you can then search for the drivers yourself or register the software to get automatic driver updates
Deborah Miller says
I’m running Windows 7 with an HP 4500…the solution to MOST of the issues I’m reading..is you are using the wrong driver…after the 4500 there is an extention…you need the “4500 G510a-f”..the “auto scan diagnose” option NEVER gives you this one- but it solves the issue!! Hope it helps!!

I can print from the computer, but it will not alow me to make copies. Can you please help.
downloaded drivers, can’t scan. says ‘no scan options. pls consult device paperwork’ or something. was given the printer/fax/scanner/copier so do not have any manual.
Drivers help says
Hi margot – have you tried downloading the software (download link above) – you can run a free drivers scan and then use the info to search for drivers to see if still available, if not you may need to register and get the tool to update the drivers for you
Dan Block says
Same problem as “fred” above. My G510 printer stopped printing about a year ago. It acts and sounds normally, but nothing comes out printed on paper. Ink levels are ok. I have replaced the driver, done ALL the HP troubleshooting available, with no luck. I upgraded to Windows 10 with no luck either. Help!
Drivers help says
Hi dan – it sounds like it could be a problem with the ink pump. Can you try to print a test page without using the PC (this will rule out PC-related issues such as drivers) – you may need to check your manual for this but it may be:
– Press and hold Cancel button
– While still pressing cancel, press the OK button
– A self-test report should print

Robert Carothers says
Had HP Officejet 4500 software installed on my HP Pavilion laptop with Windows 10 and it has been working perfectly for more than 1 year. Then, I got an automatic update for it and after that finished, all of my print commands bring up a FAX page to send. Cannot print any longer.
I have same problem as Carothers, except I have Windows 7,but may have had an auto upgrade. Can’t print, always get Fax page etc. HP virtual help was no help.
