Re: Pairing code

Hi,

 

What do you exactly need, cause a pairing code is ussually something for bluetooth. If you are talking about a security code from your network or something like that please let me know.

Re: Pairing code

When I try to pair my laptop to the printer it ask for a pairing code. This is not through bluetooth.

Re: Pairing code

I have the same problem with an P1102w.  It was when I was trying to get the printer onto my local wireless network through windows 7 after the network identified the device. It says that entering this code will verify that I am connecting to the correct device.

Re: Pairing code

After 2 weeks I finally got my P1102w working.  Couldn't find the pairing number and gave up.

I pressed the button on the printer that mades the wireless blue light flash along with the buttong pressed on the wireless network for my home network..by the time I did the below the wireless indicator on the printer was solid blue.

 

 I went to control panel > network and internet > view network and devices > and there was already an icon for my printer but with a 9 digit code in front of it.(I wonder if thats the pairing code, but I didn't need it anyway)

After right clicking on it and looking at its propertiers and website I went back to

start > devices and printers    and there the new icon had appeared, which I then made the default printer and it worked.

The old (useless) icon was still there 2 along with the 2 documents still pending.

 

I tried a word and web prints and both worked with the new setting as default.

 

Incidently I tried and tried to get this printer working through USB and wireless direct, only now is it working when I tried putting it on the wireless network. I was going to return it and switch to Brother if it didn't work!

Re: Pairing code

[ Edited ]

Hmm, i have been doing some reading on the internet and it seems to be related to wps capable routers. There is indeed a method of connection to the network with a code. However your printer does not support that method. So you will need to do it the old fashionwed way most likely. PLease make me a screenshot from the screen that asks for the code and tell me which brand an model router you are using.

The screenshopt can be added by clicking the insert/edit picturebutton  when writing yout reply.

Re: Pairing code

I recently got a new laptop which accesses my home network.  We have a shared printer (HP Photosmart Premium 309a) which has worked through the network for a couple of years.  When trying to access the printer on my new laptop, it does not recognize the network option of printing and asks for a pairing code, which I am unable to find.  Any suggestions?

Re: Pairing code

I am not techy at all!  I lost my papers that came with my printer in a house fire, they were in a file in the room upstairs that was the only room that was actually on fire, the main fire was in the attic.  SOOOOOOO no papers, I can't find the pairing code on the bottom of my printer unless, Is it titled something other than pairing code?

I have a HP Photosmart C4795 Printer.  I tried to retrieve it from HP but I can't afford their repair service at this time.

Is there anyplace I cango to get this pairing code?  For free or a very minimal cost?

Oh, and if you care, my house was totally gutted and renovated and is actually better than it ever was!

Thanks
