Solved!

I want to get instant ink but my friend already has account on this printer. What do I do?

office jet pro 8720
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My friend gave me her Office Jet Pro 8720 because she needed a bigger printer.  She had an instant ink account that she cancelled when she gave it to me, but I'm not able to sign up for instant ink because I get a message that there is already an account on this machine.  What can I do?

@DeeDee110, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

Try these steps to re-enable the web-services -

 

Step 1 Remove the Web-Services -

1. From the top of the screen, touch or swipe down the tab to open the Dashboard, touch ( HP ePrint ), and then touch (Web Services Settings).

2. Touch Remove Web Services.

 

Reboot the devices.

 

Step 2 Enable the Web-Services -

1. From the top of the screen, touch or swipe down the tab to open the Dashboard, and then touch ( Setup ).

2. Touch Web Services Setup .

3. Touch Accept to accept the Web Services terms of use and enable Web Services.

4. On the screen that appears, touch OK to allow the printer to automatically check for product updates.

5. If the Printer Update Options screen is displayed, select one of the options.

6. When the printer is connected to the server, the printer prints an information page. Follow the instructions on the information page to finish the setup.

 

If the issue persists, the only option left is to perform a full reset and re-initialize the printer. 

 

The reset instructions are specific for your printer and performing those steps on a different printer may brick the device. 

I've sent you a private message with reset instructions, follow the reset instruction to perform a full reset and re-initialize the printer. 

 

In order to access your private messages, click the private message icon on the upper right corner of your HP Forums profile, next to your profile Name or simply click on this link.
