HP CM1415fn not connecting to HP web Service

HP Recommended
HP Laserjet Pro CM1415fn
macOS 11.0 Big Sur

Hi All, 

 

I have a strange issue that I just can't seem to bottle down. I have a Laserjet PRO CM1415fn. Im trying to connect it to the HP web service so I can use all the services. 

 

I have done this before and last time worked with no problems but now won't connect At first it was giving me an error saying "Please connect to the internet" which I was but managed to Fix that by just the time and date correctly and managed to get the the Accept the  Terms page. But now when I press OK to accept I get the message "retry your last selection. if the problem continues check for firmware updates".

 

I have tried everything I can think of . 

I have checked my firewall for open ports etc. 

Logged in to my HP account removed the printer and re added. 

Factory reset the printer. 

Turned all my equipment off including the network printer etc. 

 

has anyone come across this? I see lots of very similar issues but all the suggestions don't work. 

 

My network is all wired, with a Unify 16port switch and a Unify USG gateway. any help would be appreciated.

Hi @Marsden0067,

 

I'd like to help!

 

Try the below steps -

 

Restart the computer, printer, and router

To resolve many connectivity issues, restart the computer, printer, and router.

NOTE: 

The following steps temporarily disconnect network and Internet connections, and require restarting your computer. Complete any tasks or downloads in progress before you continue.

  1. Turn off the router by pressing the power button or disconnecting the power cord.

  2. Turn off the printer.

  3. Close all running programs on your computer, and then shut down the computer.

  4. Press the power button or reconnect the power cord to the router, and then wait for the Internet activity light to display a normal connected status.

  5. Turn on the printer.

  6. Turn on the computer.

  7. Try to turn on Web Services.

If the issue persists, continue to the next step.

 

Turn on Web Services from the Embedded Web Server (EWS)

Using the printer EWS to turn on Web Service might resolve any communication issues with the printer control panel.

  1. Print a Network Configuration Page.

    • Printers with LCD and text-based control panels: Print the page from the Wireless, Network Settings or Setup menu.

    • Printers with basic control panels (buttons only): Print the page using the button combinations on the printer control panel. For some printers, press the Wireless  and Information  buttons simultaneously, or press the Wireless and Start Copy Black  buttons at the same time.

    For detailed instructions to print a Network Configuration Page, go to HP Customer Support, type your printer model, and then search for the document to 'print a self-test page.'

  2. On the Network Configuration Page, locate the URL(s) for Embedded Web Server address.

    NOTE: 

    If the URL for the EWS is http://0.0.0.0, the printer is not connected to a network. Reconnect your printer to the network, and then continue troubleshooting.

    Figure : Locating the URL(s) for Embedded Web Server address

    Locating the URL(s) for Embedded Web Server address
  3. On your computer, open an Internet browser.

  4. Type the URL address for the EWS in the browser address bar, and then press Enter.

    NOTE: 

    Make sure to type the IP address into the Internet browser's address box. If typed into a toolbar search box or search engine, the EWS does not open.

  5. If a website security certificate displays in the Internet browser, click Continue.

    The EWS webpage for the printer opens, which confirms that the printer is on the same network as the computer.

  6. On the EWS webpage, click the Web Services tab.

  7. On the Web Services Setup page, click Continue, Turn On, or Enable, and then follow the on-screen instructions

    Figure : Example of clicking Continue

    Example of clicking Continue.

If the issue persists, continue to the next step.

 

Check the Internet proxy server settings

For networks that use proxy servers, update the Web Services settings in the printer EWS with the proxy information.

  1. Locate the Internet proxy settings.

    • Windows: Search Windows for Internet, and then click Internet Options in the list of results. On the Internet Properties window, click the Connections tab, select your network, if necessary, and then click Settings.

      The network settings menu displays with the proxy settings.

      Figure : Example of proxy settings in Windows

      Example of proxy settings in Windows
    • Mac: Open System Preferences, and then click Network. On the Network window, click Advanced, click the Proxies tab, and then select your proxy, if necessary.

      Figure : Example of proxy settings in Mac

  2. Write down the Address and Port values for your proxy server connection.

  3. From the EWS, click the Web Services tab, and then click Proxy Settings.

    Figure : Clicking Proxy Settings

    Clicking Proxy Settings
  4. Type the Address and Port values for your proxy server connection, and then click Apply.

  5. Try to turn on Web Services.

 Also, try updating the printer's firmware - HP Printers - Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

HI , 

 

Thank you for your reply. I unfortunately tried all of this before Coming to the Community. I don't operate a Proxy nor do my ISP. the router is managed by me and has been restarted along with the pc. I have tried activating the HP web service but this is when I get the error mentioned above. 

 

Thanks, 

 

Luke

We can perform a factory defaults on the printer to resolve the issue

 

  • The reset instructions are specific for your printer and performing those steps on a different printer may corrupt the device.
  • I've sent you a private message with reset instructions, follow the reset instruction to perform a full reset and re-initialize the printer.
  • In order to access your private messages, click the private message icon on the upper right corner of your HP Support Community profile, next to your profile Name or simply click on this link: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/notes/privatenotespage

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
