Hi @JimHiss,


Good Day.  Thank you for posting your query in the HP community.  I read the post regarding issues with connecting the printer with the wireless direct feature. I will be delighted to assist you here. 🙂

Superb description and commendable diagnosis of the issue before posting. Kudos to you for that. 🙂

For better clarity and to assist you better I would require more information regarding this:

  • Is your printer connected to a router?
  • Have you tried multiple devices to connect using wireless direct with the printer?

For now please try these steps:

  • If the printer is connected to a router, then it needs to be disconnected for wireless direct to work. It cannot work on the router and use wifi direct simultaneously.
  • If one phone does not work using this feature, try with another phone or tablet that supports Wi-Fi direct to connect to the printer.
  • Please use this link: and follow the steps and FAQs to connect to using Wireless Direct.
  • This printer user guide also shows you how. Please check pages 17-18. This should do the trick for you as long as the printer has no hardware issues.

Please perform all these steps patiently as it is critical to resolving the issue. The trick is to remain patient, Going by your technical expertise and competence I am sure you will be able to perform these steps without breaking a sweat. 🙂
