HP Printers Blue Screen Error or Flashing Lights while Connecting to wifi-
This article applies to HP printers that are linked to specific models of Ubee wireless routers that are utilised in certain European nations and regions. When the printer tries to connect to your wireless network, it encounters one of the following problems:
- The printer becomes unresponsive, and all of the control panel lights flicker (printers without a control panel).
- The printer freezes and the control panel displays the blue screen error B84499132, B8473A86, 0xb83d210c (or something similar).
When utilising printers on a wireless network with Ubee router models EVW3226 and UVW321B, some problems have occurred.
Step 1: The First Step is to Update the Router's Firmware.
- A new router firmware update may be available to resolve the problem. To upgrade the router firmware, contact your ISP or the router manufacturer.
- If the router firmware is out of current, update it using the on-screen instructions before attempting to rejoin to the wireless network. Continue to the next step if the problem persists.
- Continue to the following step if the router firmware is up to current
Step 2: Find the IP Address of Your Router.
- Find the router IP address from any Windows computer or device that is already connected to your router wirelessly.
- Open Command Prompt from the list of search results after searching Windows for it.
NOTE: If your machine runs Windows XP, you may start a Command Prompt from the Start menu's Accessories.
Step 3: Restore the Printer's Default Network Settings.
- Reset the printer and clear the network defaults to fix the issue and restore the printer's wireless network connection.
- Using a touchscreen control panel, restore the printer's default settings.
- Restore the printer's default settings if it doesn't have a touchscreen.
Step 4: Use HP Wireless Direct or Wi-Fi Direct to Connect to Your Printer.
Your printer may broadcast a restricted wireless connection using HP Wireless Direct and Wi-Fi Direct.
- Via the inbuilt web server, you may view the printer network settings using this wireless connection (EWS).
- Use a touchscreen to connect to a printer.
- Connect to a printer that isn't equipped with a touchscreen.
Step 5: Give Your Printer an IP Address.
- To assign network settings that operate with the Ubee router, use the printer EWS.
- In a web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox, put http://192.168.223.1 into the address bar.
- In the browser window, a webpage for your printer appears. If the webpage does not open properly, go to another browser and make sure the machine is connected to the HP Wireless Direct or Wi-Fi Direct network.
- Select Network Address (IP) from the side navigation bar after clicking the Network tab.
- Manual IP is selected.
- Fill in the first three boxes for the Manual IP Address with the first three numbers from the Manual IPv4 address you noted in Step 1: Find the IP address of your router.
- Use a number between 240 and 254 for the fourth Manual IP address number.
Use the same information you typed down in Step 1 to fill out the Manual Subnet Mask and Manual Default Gateway fields: Find the IP address of your router.
- Figure: An integrated web server in a printer.
- Image: Embedded web server displaying printer network choices
- Type the same settings for the Manual Preferred DNS Server field as you did for the Manual Default Gateway.
- Apply the changes.
- Restart the router or turn it on and wait for the network to reconnect.
- Click Wireless (802.11) from the side navigation bar in the EWS window on the PC.
- To connect your printer to your router, go to Wireless Setup Wizard and follow the instructions.
- In Windows, reconnect your machine to your wireless network.
Follow these steps and your problem will be solved in the best way out and the blue screen or flashing lights will not disturb you.
