Good morning.  I have an HP Officejet 3830 All-in-One Printer series which is compatible with HP Instant Ink.  I wanted to register for the HP Instante Ink service but at the last step (when I send the request to print the final code to the server) it tells me that there is some problem with the server and it does not go on.  It should be noted that the printer is set correctly on the Wi-Fi network also to print via the HP Smart app.

Also, Make sure the date and time on the computer are set correctly.


Try the below suggestions -

Restart the computer, printer, and router

  • To resolve many connectivity issues, restart the computer, printer, and router.
  • NOTE: 
  • The following steps temporarily disconnect network and Internet connections and require restarting your computer. Complete any tasks or downloads in progress before you continue.
  • Turn off the router by pressing the power button or disconnecting the power cord.
  • Turn off the printer.
  • Close all running programs on your computer, and then shut down the computer.
  • Press the power button or reconnect the power cord to the router, and then wait for the Internet activity light to display a normal connected status.
  • Turn on the printer.
  • Turn on the computer.
  • Try to turn on Web Services.

Let's disable webservices and re-enable it
