HP Printers - Setting Up an HP Connected Account

This document is for HP printers that support web-connected printing services on HP Connected.
HP Connected for printers supports web-connected printing services, including HP ePrint cloud printing, HP Instant Ink delivery services, and HP Printables scheduled printouts. To find out if your country/region supports HP Connected, go to HP Connected, then click on the country/region and language. In the drop-down menu, find your country/region and language.
Use this document to learn how to add a printer on HP Connected, and see the Frequently asked questions (FAQs) on using web-connected printing services.
If you registered with HP Connected during the initial printer setup, your printer might already be set up on the website. Go to HP Connected, sign in to your account, and then click the Devices tab.
Step 1: Check HP Connected setup requirements
Before setting up your printer on HP Connected, make sure the printer supports web-connected printing services, and that the printer is connected to a network with an active Internet connection.
 note:
If your printer does not meet all of the following requirements, you cannot use HP Connected and web-connected printing services.
  • Confirm that your country/region is supported: Go to HP Connected, and then click on the country/region and language. In the drop-down menu, find your country/region and language.
    If you do not find your country/region from the list, HP Connected is not supported in your country/region.
  • Confirm that your printer supports web-connected printing services: Look for an HP ePrint logo, button, or icon on the printer control panel.
    Examples of the HP ePrint logo

    HP ePrint logo.
    If your printer control panel does not have an icon or button, navigate to the Web Services Setup, Network Setup, or Wireless Settings to locate the Web Services menu, depending on your printer model.
    If you are unsure if your printer is supported, go to Mobile Printing Solutions Compatible with HP Printers.
  • Confirm that your computer is connected: Make sure the computer is connected to a wired (Ethernet) or wireless network with an active Internet connection.
  • Confirm that your printer is connected: Make sure the printer is connected to a wired (Ethernet) or wireless network with an active Internet connection.
     note:
    If you connect your printer with a USB cable, web-connected printing services do not work.
    • If your printer is connected with a wired (Ethernet) connection, check the cable and the lights on the printer’s Ethernet port. The green link light should be steady, and the orange activity light should blink when the cable is connected.
    • If your printer is connected with a wireless connection, make sure the wireless feature is on, and the printer is connected to the same network as your computer.
      Some printers have a wireless icon and a blue light on the front of the printer. Make sure the light is on and not blinking.
Step 2: Turn on Web Services
Turning on Web Services allows your printer to communicate securely over the Internet with web-connected printing services, such as HP ePrint and HP Instant Ink, where available. Read the section that matches your printer control panel type for steps to turn on Web Services.
 note:
Web Services must be turned on and periodic firmware updates are required to use web-connected printing services.
Step 3: Obtain the printer claim code
After you turn on Web Services, wait for the printer to print the Make the Most of Your Printer or Important Printer Setup Instructions page. The information page contains information about Web Services, and includes the printer claim code required to add your printer on HP Connected.
Occasionally there is a delay when printing the information page. If the page does not print after 5 to 10 minutes, turn off Web Services, and then turn on Web Services again, to obtain a new information page.
Locate the printer claim code on the page, and then continue to the next step.
 note:
The printer claim code is valid for 24 hours. If the code expires, repeat these steps to get a new code.

Example of the printer claim code from the information page.
If the information sheet lists an email such as abc234vbn3434@hpeprint.com, then the printer claim code is the number and characters before @hpeprint.com. For example, abc234vbn3434 would be the printer claim code.
Step 4: Use the claim code to add your printer on HP Connected
Sign up or sign in to your HP Connected account and add your printer using the printer claim code.
  1. Go to HP Connected, click Sign Up to create a new account, or Sign In for existing accounts.
    If a Snapfish logon page displays, HP Connected has detected that you already have a Snapfish account associated with your email address. Sign in using your Snapfish account information to take advantage of an easier setup process. If you do not want to use your Snapfish logon, go back to the previous account creation page and create an account using a different email address. For more information about Snapfish accounts, go to Frequently Asked Questions About Linking Your Snapfish Account to HP Connected.

  3. Type the printer claim code found on the information page, click Add, and then click OK.

  5. If you created a new HP Connected account, verify your account.
    The HP Connected server sends an email to the email account you used during the sign up process. Open the email, and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the account verification.
    If you do not receive a verification email within a few minutes, check your spam folder.
Step 5: Set up web-connected printing services
