Turning off WiFi Direct does NOT disable WiFi signal until reboot. NO MENTION OF THIS IN MANUAL.

WiFi light off while WiFi signal for Direct Connect still active.

 

A bit sloppy, HP.

Welcome to HP support community.

 

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 and printer without any surge protector.
  6. Turn on the printer.

Update the printer firmware

I hope that helps.

Firmware was already at 1925A  when these problems were observed:

1. Printer transmitting wireless signal while wireless status indicator was NOT illuminated.

2. Disabling WiFi Direct disables WiFi transmissions from printer ONLY AFTER printer is rebooted.

There is NO mention of this requirement in the manual.

I understand your concerns.

 

In that case please perform the partial reset and check.

 

Please look at the private message.
