Reset password on OfficeJet 5200 WIFI Password when requested on I Phone

HP Recommended
Office Jet 5200

It has been a little over a year since I bought the printer. At the time I thought I was going to be working from home more. Now that I am I am trying to set up printing from my phone. I have the printer on the network. When I go to print an email off my iPhone 10 there is no share button or printer option. When I go to my phone and choose the printer off the WIFI list it asks for a password. I don't know what that is. How do I reset this or do I need too. Thanks in advance.

Hi @Aquabp


Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you


Due to the current global COVID-19 situation, we're seeing an influx of customers coming in for support. We appreciate your patience.


To better assist you - 

  • What is the status of the wireless light on the printer, steady or blinking?
  • How is the printer connected to the device USB or wireless?
  • I would like to know, is your router set to work on 2.4 GHz network or 5 GHz network band?
  • Are your printer and phone on the same network?

The password you're looking for is wifi direct password, the default wifi direct password is 12345678

Wi-Fi direct is a method that connects your printer directly to your phone or computer using default or an assigned password, the drawback of this type of connection is that you will not be able to access the internet and print at the same time.  


refer to Printing with Wi-Fi Direct


To print directly via wireless connectivity refer to Install and Use the HP Smart App and Printing with Apple AirPrint (iOS)


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
