    • A green status LED (furthest from the USB connector) indicates that the device is ready.
    • A blue status LED indicates that the HP 1200w Accessory is connected to a wireless network or that another HP wireless direct connection is active.
    • The printer communication status LED (closest to the USB connector) is green if a supported HP printer is currently connected, blank if no printer is connected, or red if an unsupported printer is connected.
    For more detailed information about the status LEDs, go to About the HP 1200w NFC/Wireless Mobile Print Accessory.
