Turn Off Web Services Without Using An Lcd Display Or Touchscreen

To do this, you will be using an Embedded Web Server.

  1. You need to find the printer IP address. This will be a different method depending on the model of printer you have.

Method 1: For the majority of HP Printers

a. Press the ‘Wireless’ button and ‘Information’ button at the same time.

b. Alternatively, press the ‘Wireless’ button and the ‘Start Copy Black’ button at the same time.

Method 2: To be used with the HP DeskJet 6000, HP DeskJet 6400, HP ENVY 6000, HP ENVY 6400, and all HP Tango printers

a. Hold down the ‘Information’ button. Keep it held until all buttons on the control panel have lit up.

b. With the control panel buttons lit up, press the ‘Information’ button and ‘Resume’ button at the same time.

All the methods listed above will result in a printout of information from the printer.

2. Find the print IP address on the printout. This is usually the first bit of information given.

3. Type the IP address into your web browser. This should be in the address box, not a search engine. Check the IP address has been input correctly, then press ‘Enter’.

4. After pressing ‘Enter’, you will see either:

  • A website security certificate

5. For a website security certificate

  • Click ‘Continue’, the EWS will open.
  • Click ‘Web Services’.
  • Locate ‘Web Services Settings’.
  • Click ‘Remove Web Services’.
  • Follow the instructions given in the browser to turn web services off.

  • Once logged in, click ‘Web Services’.
  • Locate ‘Web Services Settings’.
  • Click ‘Remove Web Services’.
