Printer Cannot Access Web Services

HP Recommended
HP Officejet 8040
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP Officejet 8040 cannot connect to Web Services.  It says "The server might be busy or temporarily unavailable.  Try again later."  I am trying to scan to email.  I have tried everything that I found so far in the forum (and others).  I know that some printers no longer have access to Web Services, but the 8040 Series is not on that list.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi @Cindy_Callahan,

 

I'd like to help!

 

Try the below suggestions-

 

Set a manual IP-

 

To set a manual IP and try the steps below -

 

--->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

--->then go to network ---> general ---> network protocols ---> select IPV4 only-->apply 

--->go to wireless ---> wireless 802.11---> select manual ip ---> apply

--->Enter 8.8.8.8 for the first DNS and 8.8.4.4 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

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
