Cannot connect to Web Servies

HP Recommended
Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

Display continues to read that it is trying to connect to the Web Services. Wifi is running fine, able to print documents from Macbook. When we attempt to scan and email we are hitting a hard stop and unable to connect to Web Services server.


What should we do?

It is likely not in your control.


Web Services Down - Cannot Connect


What is impacted?

Various applications and Services

For example, ePrint, Instant Ink, HP Smart – “things that use Web Services”


Problems with HP Smart (Windows and Mobile) might be related to Web Services having trouble .


If that is the case, Uninstalling the app from Settings > Apps > Apps and Features and "Getting" a new copy of the HP Smart for Windows Application from the Microsoft Store will likely be in vain.


I have reported the Web Services problem and also recent posted troubles with HP Smart.


Web Services is apparently down in at least one region (or partial region) - it does this sometimes.


Having reported the issue does not mean there is an instant fix available.

The problem will be investigated for us.


Meanwhile, there is naught to do but wait it out.


What else?


If the issue you are having is related directly to Web Services:

Scan and save the document / image to your computer / device

Open your mail and attach the file - send it to the recipients.


If the issue you are having is related to "something weird" with HP Smart:

Hang in there.

Whatever is going on is being investigated...



We Wait... try again at a later time.
