Web Services not connecting

HP Recommended
Deskjet Plus 4130
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Cannot utilise HP Instant Ink as during setup the account cannot connect to the web services setup. I have tried all the online details around rebooting equipment and also tried reconfiguring the IP addressing as suggested in another post. The web services still continue to encounter problems and will not connect.

Hi @PWallace83,


I'd like to help!


Try the below suggestions -


Restart the computer, printer, and router

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


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.


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


If the issue persists,


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.
  2. From the EWS, click the Web Services tab, and then click Proxy Settings.
  3. Type the Address and Port values for your proxy server connection, and then click Apply.
  4. Try to turn on Web Services.

Update the printer firmware

HP regularly releases printer updates. Updating the printer firmware might resolve the issue.
