HP5055 - Printer code not recognized - Unable to sign up for Instant Ink or add printer to HPSmart

HP Recommended
HP Envy 5055
Other

I have restarted Web Services multiple times, and generated 3 different codes there.   Every time I go to TOOLS---->HP Code it gives me a new code there (which is different from the one given in Web Services).   I have also removed web services, and reset the printer to factory defaults.   No code I am given will work to enroll in Instant Ink, nor will it allow me to add the printer on HPSmart.com.   

Why on earth is this so difficult to get right?

Hi @FooPlinger

Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you. Let us try these steps:

 

Press the HP ePrint icon on your control panel display and select Remove Web Services. Follow the on-screen instructions to remove Web Services, press the HP ePrint icon again, and then follow the prompts to re-enable Web Services. A new Printer Info Page prints with a new claim code. Try to claim the printer again using the new claim code. 

 

To know how to enroll the printer in Instant Ink, refer to this document.

To know how to find the printer claim code, refer to this document.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

In my original post, you can see that all of this has been tried previously, and failed
