Download the "HP PCL.6" version 3 print driver, the "HP PCL 6" version 3 print driver, and the "HP PCL-6" version 4 print driver from the printer-support website for this printer: www.hp.com/support/colorljM552, www.hp.com/support/colorljM553.
macOS: Mac computers are supported with this printer. Download HP Easy Start either from 123.hp.com/LaserJet or from the Printer Support page, and then use HP Easy Start to install the HP print driver. HP Easy Start is not included in the HP Software Installer.
  1. Follow the steps provided to download the printer software.

Minimum system requirements
Windows
macOS
  • Internet connection
  • Dedicated USB 1.1 or 2.0 connection or a network connection
  • 2 GB of available hard-disk space
  • 1 GB RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • Internet connection
  • Dedicated USB 1.1 or 2.0 connection or a network connection
  • 1.5 GB of available hard-disk space
note:
The Windows software installer installs the HP Smart Device Agent Base service. The file size is approximately 100 kb. Its only function is to check for printers connected via USB hourly. No data is collected. If a USB printer is found, it then tries to locate a JetAdvantage Management Connector (JAMc) instance on the network. If a JAMc is found, the HP Smart Device Agent Base is securely upgraded to a full Smart Device Agent from JAMc, which will then allow printed pages to be accounted for in a Managed Print Services (MPS) account. The driver-only web packs downloaded from hp.com for the printer and installed through the Add Printer wizard do not install this service.
To uninstall the service, open the Control Panel, select Programs or Programs and Features, and then select Add/Remove Programs or Uninstall a Program to remove the service. The file name is HPSmartDeviceAgentBase.

The printer supports the following software for mobile printing:
  • HP ePrint via email (Requires HP Web Services to be enabled and the printer to be registered with HP Connected)
