Printing from Android can be done by the HP ePrint Home & Biz application for Network printers only.
Printing via USB is not a supported feature.
You may check for any 3rd party application to share a printer via the PC.
Google cloud as example will allow sharing a USB printer through the PC and printing from Google applications:
For any similar solutions you may check the Google Play Store.

This is very poor.
I am trying to support someone who has purchased an inkjet 3630 for a Lenovo TAB 2 A10. It connects by Wifi OK, but that jams the internet connection since it seems that the Wireless Direct feature can't chew gum and walk. That makes it pretty useless for a lot use scenarios and confused the hell out of the guy who tried to print a web page and found the network access was broken as a result.
The obvious solution for me was to plug in the physical USB connection and reserve the wifi for the network access.
Now the above reply seems pretty clear, but I'm wondering why put a USB port on a printer if you can't use it to PRINT.
This is beyond lame.
HP provide printer software which does not support the most direct and reliable form of connectivity, knowing that many devices don't support more advanced and optional multiple use Wireless Direct extensions like concurrent, mulitple use of the hardware by different interfaces simulataneously.
So let me just make sure I'm not misunderstanding here:
HP support Andoid devices, almost all of which will have a USB connection of some sort.
HP sell printers with USB ports that their customers are going assume are there for printing functionality.
HP provide their customers with proprietory software to allow them to use thier new HP hardware.
HP printer software cannot use the USB port on the printer ???
Tell me I've misuderstood, please.
