Hi @marioncrist


Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you with the claim code. 


We need to re-enable the Web-Services to generate the claim code.


To remove the Web-Services, please try these steps - 


1. From the printer control panel display, touch ( ePrint ), and then touch (Web Services Settings).

2. Touch Remove Web Services.

3. Touch Yes.


Reboot the router and the printer. 


To enable the Web-Services, try these steps -

1. From the printer control panel display, touch HP Printables.

2. Touch Enable Web Services, and then touch Yes.

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

4. In the Auto Update screen, touch Yes to allow the printer to automatically check for and install product updates.

5. 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.
