So this only works this easily if you have connected it to the internet? The only service I have is on my cell. I was under the impression that you could just plug the printer in and print? I have a deskjet 2543.

Re: How to print with Android v4.4 KitKat

The printer needs to be connected to either a wired or a wireless network, and then the phone or tablet needs to be connected to that same network.  If the printer is USB connected, it will not work.  I hope this helps!

 

Your DeskJet 2543 All-in-one has wireless.  So, just make sure that it is connected to the same wireless that you connect your phone to.

Re: How to print with Android v4.4 KitKat

I was talked into a Samsung pro tablet for my business instead of a lap top. Then talked into the Laser jet pro 200 wireless printer. I can find nothing on why when I create a sign for a display it prints out in a PDF Form sometimes not even giving me a space. I am getting very frustrated with the printer. Haven't been impressed even though others have said great things about it! I would greatly appreciate any advice on this matter.

Re: How to print with Android v4.4 KitKat

I'd like to help, but can you provide a little more details on this?  What app on the tablet are you trying to print from, and what is the problem with the output?  Sorry, but I don't understand what you mean by "prints out in a PDF Form".

I didn't mean PDF Form, it prints only in tech form, no matter the print that is on my screen. Samsung preloaded hancom office. Still frustrated with both products and was told by Verizon office that they were compatible. $1400 later, not impressed was verizon either.

Re: How to print with Android v4.4 KitKat

Hi, It is also possible to print via the HPePrint App which is available from playstore. Personally speaking I find this app very good and have have very few problems using multiple printers and devices. Could you try the app and see if it helps solve your problem?

Hi crystal_ms,

 

I believe that your printer may have wireless direct which means you can print directly between your phone and printer without being connected to the internet on either. You will need to turn on wireless direct on your printer control panel and then search for your printer on your phone as if you are searching to pick up Wi-Fi somewhere.

 

Here is a link to the instruction manual http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03847745.pdf Page 53 probably explains this better than I can
