To start off, I have the HP Smart app on my computer. When I click "Add a Printer", my printer pops up in online status, but when I click on it, it automatically switches to offline and sends me an error message that I need to have the printer on to add it, though the printer is on.
Also, I have tried to scan from my printer to my computer, and it gives me an error message to make sure that scan to the computer is turned on. I'm pretty sure this is tied to the app problem, but I'm just looking for advice to get this working again.
