I changed wifi password and now cannot print to my HP Deskjet F4500 wirelessly

HP Recommended
DESKTOP-HK3M8CA
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I chose ink jet from the category options as there wasn't a deskjet option.

HP Deskjet F4500 series. I cannot wirelessly print now that I've changed my wifi password for security reasons. The icon in the printer settings reads ready but when I print it says error - printing. I see no obvious way to reconnect. Please let me know if you need any further information to help you help me. 

Thank you!

Hi @budlobo,

 

I'd like to help!

 

Use Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), HP Smart, or temporarily connect a USB cable to establish a wireless connection between your printer and network.

 

 Connect the printer with WPS

Use WPS to connect the printer to your wireless network.

  1. Locate the WPS button on your router, but do not press it yet.

    If your router does not support WPS, skip to the next step to connect the printer with the HP Smart app.

  2. Turn on the printer. If the printer is in sleep mode, press the Cancel button on the control panel.

  3. On the printer control panel, press and hold the Wireless button  for at least 3 seconds or until the wireless light starts to flash.

    NOTE: 

    HP Tango printers: Press and hold the Wireless and Power buttons on the back of the printer for 5 seconds. The Edge lighting flashes blue to indicate the printer is in WPS mode.

  4. On the router, press and hold the WPS button for 3 to 5 seconds or until it shows that the WPS connection process has started.

    NOTE: 

    The printer stops searching for a WPS connection two minutes after the wireless button is pressed. If you were unable to press the WPS button within that timeframe, attempt these steps again.

    Once the printer connects to the wireless network, the blue Wireless light on the control panel turns on solid.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
