Re: Instant Ink - Cant Connect to Instant Ink Server

Ive got an HP ENVY 6234. Ive tried removing web-services and adding them back in. that process works BUT I still get 'Cannot Print. Connect Printer to update HR Instant Ink Status' . is the HP Instant Ink server down?

This is really annoying as I cant print ANYTHING from anywhere. I've replaced the cartridges today, so I know they're Full.

Re: Instant Ink - Cant Connect to Instant Ink Server

Just remembered that when I recently did a software update of the printer, one of the steps (firmware, I think) was initially unsuccessful in install process (there was a screen that came up where I had to select the printer from the list - it had technical detail and a check-box next to it) I couldnt tick the check-box to then select 'Next' : only cancel was available..

@Nellzee_Dave

 

To check for firmware updates on the printer, go to Setup > Tools > Update the printer > Check now

I have also sent a private message to resolve the Instant Ink connectivity issue, kindly check the same.

 

Let me know how this goes.
