How do I learn my password to Wifi Direct?

HP Recommended

I have Hp 3636. I'm switching on Wifi Direct or WIreless Direct and trying to connect to it as to a regular Wifi Hotspot. Then it asks me for a password. How do I get to know my password?

You WiFi Direct password is revealed when you print out your Network Config sheet from the printer according to the manual I downloaded and read.

if the Wifi Direct button is already turned on Press and hold the button for 3 seconds, the printed report includes the WiFi Direct password.


if its light turns off, press the button to enable WiFi Direct and te report should be printed as well.

I bought my  deskjet GT 5820 about 20 days ago.


I try to connetct my Samsung S7 phone to the printer via 'wifi direct' and I know that the password is 12345678,

BUT my phone does not give me the option to enter a Password !


Thus, I see the GT 5820 on my phone under 'wifi direct', but the printer does not allow the connection.


What to do?


Thank you in advance
