Printer(PRO 6968)

OFFICE jET pRO

Printer goes offline after a few minutes. The fix is to power off, then power on and all is good until it is idle for over 5 minutes. How do I keep it on line thru idle periods?

I have gone through your Post and I would like to help

 

Please ensure the printer has the latest Firmware. You can refer to this Link: https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c02919168

 

Next assign a Manual IP Address and that should help

 

1) Obtain the IP address of the printer – You can touch the “wireless” icon on the printer control panel to obtain the IP address.
2) Type the IP address on your web browser to obtain the printer EWS page on your computer.
3) Go to "Network" tab - General - Select "Network protocols" - Select "Enable IPv4 only" (or similar) - Apply the settings.
4) Go to the “Network” tab – Click on “Wireless (802.11) – Then click on “Network address (IPv4)
5) Click Manual IP
6) If you see a Suggest a Manual IP Address button, click Manual IP address, and the Manual IP addresses are automatically filled out for you.
7) If your page does not have a button to suggest a manual IP address, type the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway using the numbers shown in the report you printed.
 

Keep me posted how it goes 😊
