Can i not print straight from my samsung note 8

HP Recommended

Android 8.0 Oreo and older

Why must they make it so difficult to print from your phone without use of the same internet connection?  I have a galaxy note 8 and  the deskjet 3520 series i cannot seem to get them to talk to each other. I thought wifi direct means directly from device to printer. I cant even get it to print via usb wired connection. Completely frustratsd

@Whizzard, Welcome to HP Support Community!


Follow the steps below to complete the setup-


1. To use Wireless Direct, you need to turn on Wireless Direct from the control panel and get the Wireless Direct name and password if you have Wireless Direct security on:


a. From the home screen, press the Wireless button and then select Settings.

b. If the display shows that Wireless Direct is Off, select Wireless Direct and then select On (No Security) or On (With Security).

NOTE: If you turn on security, only users with the password will be able to connect wirelessly to the printer. If you turn off security, anyone with a Wi-Fi device within the Wi-Fi range of the printer will be able to connect to the printer.

c. Select Display Name to display the Wireless Direct name.

d. Select Display Password to display the Wireless Direct password if you have the Wireless Direct security on.


2. From your wireless computer or mobile device, turn wireless on, search for and connect to the Wireless Direct name, for example, HP-print-BF-Deskjet 3520. If you have Wireless Direct security on, enter the Wireless Direct password when prompted. Then print as you normally do from your computer or mobile device.


Also, refer to the document HP Printers - Printing with Wi-Fi Direct for more details.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
