Although my Android phone is connected and recognizes the printer, when I try to print, it won't.
Product: HP Laserjet P1102w
Operating System: Android 8.0 Oreo and older
My Android phone easily recognizes my printer and loads it into the system. However when I try to print, the message flashes, "printer not available". How do I make the printer "available" to my Android phone?
Welcome to the HP Support Community. I understand you are not able to print from your Android device. I'd be happy to assist you.
Check if the printer and the android device are connected to the same wireless network
Either 2.4 or 5GHz network.
If you have a Dual-band router and both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks share the same name/SSID, the printer will not be able to connect to the network. In this case, contact your Internet service provider to assign different names to both the networks.
Use the HP Smart app to print and scan from your Win PC
