I wonder if HP is controlling the software remotely to disable old printers so that we have to buy a new printer. I cannot connect my HP Officejet Pro 8610 printer to my new network of Verizon. The system does not recognize the printer. The connection search failed without any reason. This may be a software problem attributable to HP, I wonder. Is there anybody who faced a similar problem with HP printers?
Let's restore the network settings on the Printer: 1. From the printer control panel, touch and slide your finger across the screen, touch Setup, and then touch Network Setup. 2. Touch Restore Network Defaults, and then touch Yes. A message appears stating that the network defaults have been restored. 3. Touch OK.
Once done, try connecting the Printer to the new Wi-Fi.
Let me know if this helps.
