Cannot Print with HP ePrint from My HP LaserJet Printer

Issue
You previously used the HP ePrint service, but now it does not work.
Solution
To use the HP ePrint feature again, update your printer firmware, and then re-register your printer.
Step one: Update the printer firmware
Important: The HP printer must be connected to the computer and to a wired (Ethernet) or wireless network with an active Internet connection to update the firmware and enable ePrint.
  1. If the Welcome to HP Support page opens, follow these steps:
    1. Type your printer model number.
    2. Click Go.
      You might need to select your printer model number from a list of similar printer models.
  2. Select your operating system, and then click Next.
    A list of drivers and other downloads display.
  3. Scroll down the page, and then click Firmware.
  4. Click Download , and then follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the firmware.
Step two: Enable Web Services
  1. Get the printer IP address.
    • How do I find the printer IP address?
      You can find the IP address in multiple ways, though options vary by printer.
      • Press the Wireless button on the printer control panel to view the network settings.
      • Access the Network menu on the printer control panel.
      • Print a Network Configuration Page or Wireless Network Report page.
      For more details on these options or for instructions on finding your printer's IP address, click here to go to the support page for your printer, and then search for steps to print a Network Configuration Page or to access network information on the control panel.
  2. Open a web browser, type the IP address into the address line, and then press Enter. The embedded web server (EWS) opens.
     note:
    Type the IP address exactly as it displays on the Network Configuration Page. For example: 192.168.X.XXX.
