8720 touchscreen not working

Office jet 8720 All in One

I have an office at 8720. I love this printer and for the most part haven’t had any issues however the touch screen lights up but no longer responds when I touch it, which I’ve been able to work around by using HP smart and the printer software on my computer. However I had to change my Wi-Fi password and now don’t seem to be able to re-connect my printer to my network because the only way that I can find to do that is through the touch screen panel. Can someone suggest another way to connect my printer to the the Wi-Fi? Or How to fix the touch screen issue? I’ve already tried all the rebooting suggestions that I have found to get the touchscreen working. Just an FYI

8720 touchscreen not working

@Clark832 Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that the touchscreen is not working.


Perform a power reset

  1. Turn on the printer, if it is not already on.
  2. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.
  3. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  4. Wait at least 30 seconds.
  5. Plug back the power cable straight to a wall outlet without any surge protector and printer.
  6. Turn on the printer.

Update the printer firmware
