HP ePrint provides direct printing from any PC or mobile device (including Pre and Pixi smartphones and Touchpad tablet), using an Internet-connection and with no need of special driver or software.
The technology is used in the whole line of HP printers. It provides printing of e-documents from a mobile device via cloud services. Every such printer has a unique e-mail address, where you should send the docs, you need to print. The administrator of a printer with ePrint technology could accept users, who want to print on it. It means that nobody can use a printer, if he hadn’t got it from the printer admin.
There are only two disadvantages of ePrint. First—you don’t have the authority to change printer settings, and second—you can print one document at once.
- Make sure your mobile device is connected to the Internet.
- Make sure the needed printer is switched on and connected to the Internet either (even if it is connected to a networked PC).
- Find out the printer e-mail:
– from the printer admin,
– right on the printer (Wireless connection—Web-service—Show printer e-mail or Settings—Web-service settings—Printer e-mail, depending on the model).
- Send the needed document from e-mail on your mobile device to printer e-mail.
The e-mail will be printed right after receiving. You could check job status on the ePrintCenter site after registration. If ePrint service fails to connect to a printer, the print job will be kept for 24 hours.
