I am trying to replace an old printer with the new one.  I am trying to replace from the instant ink account the old printer with the new one.  I apply the printer claim code from the printer information and receive this error:  


Enter your printer claim code below.

Something went wrong. Please try again later.
I have waited and tried again - yesterday, today.  Same result.

Hi @jasmemphis,


I'd like to help!


To set a manual IP and try the steps below ( without control panel)


Press the wireless and information button for 3 seconds to print a network configuration page


--->print a network configuration report and take down down IP address
---->Open a web browser (ex Chrome or Mozilla) and type in the printer's IP from the network configuration page 
--->then go to network ---> general ---> network protocols ---> select IPV4 only-->apply 
--->go to wireless ---> wireless 802.11---> select manual ip ---> apply
--->Enter for the first DNS and for the second DNS.  
--->then go to settings on the main ews page --> power management ---> select sleep mode to max 15min


Let's disable webservices and re-enable it


--->Touch on the wifi icon ((i)) on the printer, and take down the IP address
--->Open a web browser (ex Chrome or Mozilla) and type in the printer's IP
---> click on webservices and remove webservices and re-enable it


Then try and entering the claim code.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
