@Jude54, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


Do you get a blank sheet when trying to make a copy?

Check the ink levels and replace any low/empty ink cartridges.

To resolve print quality issues, clean the ink cartridges and print a test page as shown in this document - Black Ink Not Printing and Other Print Quality Issues


Use the WPS method to connect the printer to the wireless network as shown in this document. 

  • Make sure the printer and the iOS device are connected to the same wireless network.
  • If you have a Dual-band router and both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks share the same name/SSID, the printer will not be able to connect to the network. In this case, contact your Internet service provider to assign different names to both networks.
  • Also, check with your Internet service provider if your router is able to forward 'Bonjour packets'.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
