@Sammierogers1, Welcome to HP Support Community!


HP does not recommend connecting the printer to any hotspot and WiFi signal blinking on the computer screen shows that the network has issues.


Alternatively, you can print using the WiFi Direct option. Refer to the link Wireless direct | Wireless Printing for help.


To print from iPhone, follow the steps below-

Connect your Apple device directly to the printer with Wi-Fi Direct or HP wireless direct.


The following steps temporarily disconnect your Apple device from the Internet. If you are printing web-based content such as emails, webpages, or cloud-based documents, open them before proceeding.

  1. Make sure the printer is turned on, ink cartridges are installed, and plain paper is loaded in the main tray.

  2. On your Apple iOS device, tap Settings, and then tap Wi-Fi.

  3. Under the Choose a network menu, select your printer with DIRECT in the name.

  4. If prompted for a password, type 12345678. This is the default password to log in.

  5. Open the document, photo, email, or webpage you want to print, and then tap the Share icon  or  

  6. Tap Print or the Print icon  to open Printer Options.

  7. Tap Select Printer to select your printer.

  8. Reconnect to your local Wi-Fi network after the print job completes.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
