My printer was working with HP Smart quite well.

From one day to the other, stopped working.

The printer shows as being offline, in my HP-Smart App when connected via internet (still online, when connected to the printer‘s network)

Also ePrint (printing via eMail) no longer working (configured for „no email-address restriction).

Checking printer‘s and HP-connected (HP smart) settings, everything looks fine.

indeed the first easiest step solved my issue (a shame I didn't try before ...)

 

> Uninstall and reinstall the HP Smart App.

 

after re-installing the App, I am now again able to remotely access my printer in the internet!

I'm glad to hear that and you're most welcome. Do get back to us in the future for further assistance.

 

Thanks!

 

Have a nice day and stay safe!:)
