Set up printer services

The following sections provide details for this topic.

You can set up the following services:

  • Receive automatic firmware updates

  • Enable email printing

  • Enable additional printer services

A network connection is required, so the printer will test its own connectivity. Remember to connect the network cable to the printer.

Each printer service can be enabled or disabled individually as explained below.

During initial printer setup, you are asked whether you want to enable these services. That decision can be changed later by tapping Connectivity icon, then Small settings icon at the top of the page, then Services > Data Collection & HP Privacy Statement.

If you are part of the HP Partner Link Pay-per-use service, tap Connectivity icon, then Services icon, then Ellipsis icon, then Register new service in order to register the printer service.
