You can also connect the printer with the wireless setup wizard on the control panel or use Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). Once connected to Wi-Fi, HP Smart can discover the printer to enable printing. Go to Printer Setup Fails with HP Smart App (Android) for detailed steps.
    • If your printer displays, continue to the next step.

    • If your printer does not display, tap the Plus sign to select a printer from the list of found printers or set up a new one, and then follow the on-screen instructions.
