HP Envy Printers, HP printer setup

Envy 5660 Multi-Function Printer

The Envy 5660 from HP is a multi-function printer that efficiently performs everyday activities such as print, scan and copy. To assist in these functions, the device is equipped with an auto-duplexer for two-sided printing and a LAN port for wired network connections. Moreover, it also facilitates wireless connectivity through the AirPrint, ePrint or Mopria apps. So, why don’t we have a more detailed analysis of this all in one printing machine before you set it up using setup? setup setup

Notable features of this Envy printer from HP

Like most Envy printers available in this series, this device too can perform the usual print, scan and copy like we mentioned earlier. In addition to these regular functions, you can directly access the internet with this printer. The printer is commonly used for printing the following;

  • Coloring books or sheets by children
  • Menu planner by home makers
  • Crossword puzzles by enthusiasts

Besides, the device is lightweight (approximately 15 pounds) and therefore easy to carry around within your house.


This printing machine can be connected to any device such as a computer, laptop, Mac or even mobile devices and tablets. You must however install and setup the printer for these devices beforehand. In case you are using a wireless app such as AirPrint or Cloud print, all you need is the app and a network connection. In addition to all these connection methods, you can also connect using the Wi Fi Direct technology supported on

  • Android devices
  • iOS devices
  • Windows devices
  • Google devices
  • Kindle devices

A USB connection facilitates a connection only with a single device; wireless connections are best when multiple resources utilize the same printer.


Since the device is meant for home users and small office users, it has a light duty cycle. Meaning, it can handle only 125 sheets at a single point in time. Otherwise, the printer is very economical and uses the cartridges wisely. For two sided printing, the machine makes use of the auto-duplexer reducing power consumption and turn-around time. This duplexer is however functional only for printing and definitely not for scanning. The additional 15-sheet photo tray helps organize photo printing for users.

This setup involves the following process steps which are specific to this printer model.  Since it is compact and light weight, it can literally be set up even in the smallest of places.

HP Printer App Wireless Setup

Having a Mac book and wondering how to connect your printer to it? Then you are in the right place. We have tried to simplify the setup steps so that you will be able to do it all by yourselves.

Things you must know

When you are doing a wireless setup, it is very important that you remove all other cables like the Ethernet and the USB cables. But of course, you will still be needing your printer’s power cable to connect it to a power source. If you already tried connecting to some other wireless network or the same network, it would be wiser to reset the wireless settings.

The power indicator light will tell you when the printer is back; else your printer is in sleep mode. Make sure that the wireless light on your printer is also blinking. If not, press and hold the wireless and the cancel buttons simultaneously for 3 secs. Your printer now needs to be installed with the printer software and the necessary drivers.

The wireless printing apps

Open the HP Easy Start software and select the Set up my Printer option and then accept to the terms and conditions mentioned therein. You will then be directed to the connect screen where your printer’s details will be listed. If you do not find your printer listed on this page then retry connecting once again.

You have the option of renaming your printer once you are connected to it. Enter your network’s password either manually or automatically for a keychain request prompt. Now you can follow the instructions (PC/laptop) to complete the setup. There is additional software that you can choose to install like the HP Essential Software and HP Easy Scan. You will have to do the setup procedure once again in case you happen to change your network’s password sometime in between.

If you are stuck in the middle of this setup process or you don’t want to risk it doing by yourselves, then we are here to get you through this process in a breeze. Call us anytime at our toll-free number +1-866-270-3810 or visit for any queries related to your printers.
