printer ink not being sent

@pucksalterego, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


The printer must be connected to the internet in order to communicate with HP Servers. If the printer is not connected to the internet, HP will not get to know the status of the printer/ink level.

Instant ink service will not work on USB connection.


To know more about HP Instant Ink, refer to the FAQ section here
