    Yes, including that one and a host of other troubleshooting steps from HP and other well-meaning individuals affected by the issue. The trouble was Windows 10 was treating a key HP file as something that should not be installed and replacing it with it's own version/driver. Even if you replace it with HP's driver in Safe Mode, once you restart in Standard mode, the file will be replaced again. A vicious circle, that one. LOL! No such crap with the new Canon I replaced it with. We still use the HP once in a while as a standalone copier. Might give it away or have it recycled when its ink runs out.

    Any suggestions for a cheap all in one colored printer that uses cartridges? I need to print out worksheets for online classes. So many options online I’m getting confused. Thank you!

    I'd suggest looking into what's the availability of the cartridges, since that's the route you want to take.
    Or I'd take a trek to the nearest places and see what's physically out there as well. Can't be too dependent on just one outlet.

    Okay, I'm really, really tired of all the sh*t of HP, and it's Hold for Authentication problems, and the whole "There was an upgrade bug" etc. What's the best printer to get now?

    ^I used to be loyal to Brother (for years)... until I've tried Epson :)

    I've never had problems with Brother, but the print quality with Epson is just better. - both brands are reliable. But for serviceablity, cost of supplies, parts - Epson has the edge.

    I've unfriended HP 15 years ago... it seems that everything HP makes suck :)

    The problem I had with an Epson printer before was that it was so picky that even if I put in an original Epson ink cartridge, it will reject it. I'll have to reload it again for it to register. Another quirk is that if one of the color cartridges runs out, it will not print anything even if all the others are full, even if you're printing black and white and you run out of yellow ink. Big hassle. Replaced it with an HP first (had a problem after a Windows update: backread posts for details). Now I'm using a Canon. No complaints with the Canon...

    My Epson ET-2720 i picked up early this year has been fantastic! AirPrint is excellent as well.

    Best feature is the individual ink tanks.

    We’re still using an old HP 3775. If Windows 10 updates weren’t trouble enough, wait til you change ISP / Routers / wireless internet!

    Then again, for iPhones and iPads, it works seamlessly. It has small cartridges so don’t expect much from it. But for occasional printouts of forms, kids’ homework, scan, its Php3,500 cost is definitely worth it.

    This might be true for REALLY OLD Epson models.... However, most Epson printers these days no longer use "cartridges." - Most of them (if not all) now uses Continuous Ink System - wherein you just need to pour in inks to fill the built-in tanks... On my Printer, there was a time I ran out of Yellow Ink - it still printed but of course the result wasn't great, but it did the job. :)

    Yeah, Canon is also great... but it's more expensive to maintain. Reason why most printing businesses use mostly Epson printers.

    Also, Epson and Canon are the most Mac friendly brands.

    My wife is a printer technician are she recommends Epson for their overall durability and serviceability. Canon comes in next for fast and quality prints. Brother probably third and HP the last and worst of all brands.
