Can't connect to Wireless Direct on HP Deskjet 3520 from Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I have a brand new HP Deskjet 3520, I've turned on Wireless Direct, and I'm trying to print from a Samsung Galaxy Nexus. I can see the printer's wireless network from the phone, but every time I try to connect to it, the phone says "Obtaining IP Address" but never fully connects. When I go to the HP ePrint app on the phone, it can't find the printer (probably because I'm not fully connected).


I've tried printing from an iphone as well. I have the same issue with appearing to not fully connect to the printer's network, but I am able to print out documents. However, I really need the printer to work with the Samsung phone.

You need to verify that your Samsung supports ad-hoc connections.  I doubt it does.  Same with the iPhone.  Call Samsung and Apple to check.


However since the printer supports ePrint, I suggest you set it up that way.

Printer Hint #1 - Always buy a printer with a display panel for easy configuration.
Printer Hint #2 - Always buy a printer with separate black and separate color cartridges.
Printer Hint #3 - Always buy a wireless printer with an Ethernet port for backup.
Special Hint: There is a 97.2% (and increasing) chance the information you seek is in the User Guide/Manual or on your printers HP Support Page. Remember, Google is your friend.

I use ePrint with my Samsung Galaxy SIII.


After registering the printer with HP, and obtaining the required "" email address, I set up a contact named "Printer" and simply forward any emails I want printed to that name.


The ePrint app from the Play store will handle the rest (though it still chokes on secure web pages).  Smiley Sad
