Great - Did you connect the printer to the Wi-Fi network?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I followed the instructions but there is no connection.and this is the second printer if had the first one was just the same I am not sure if I am doing something wrong on my tablet when I go into settings it shows HP printer is there something else I should be doing? I have given the hub wireless network and the hub password ***** to printer.Surely I can't have bought 2printers that won't connect.I am new to IT so its very possible that I am missing something but they told me at cuurys that it should be fine..

Tess,

On the printer, did you connect it to the Wi-Fi network? It is important to connect the printer to the network first before trying to printer from any device to that printer. You should receive a connected message and sometimes a printed page that shows your network connections.

Try this on the tablet..

  2. Touch Print .
    Figure 1: Print (Gallery app example)

  3. Touch Touch to Select a Printer .
  4. The tablet displays a list of available printers. Find your printer on the list, and touch to select it. Printer selection only needs to be completed once (the first time you pair your tablet with your printer).
    NOTE:Make sure your printer and tablet are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. If your printer does not appear in this list, you may need to use one of the other printing methods in this document.

Tess,

Please stop rating the answers as POOR/BAD SERVICE when we are still working on the issue.

The three line option appears when you open the browser, Gallery, or email.
