By using the HP Smart app

  2. Press the WiFi button on the printer and hold for three seconds.
  3. Wait for a blue light to indicate your printer is ready to connect.

  5. Click on Add printer or Add new printer
  6. Locate the HP DeskJet 3755 and click on it.
  7. Tap Yes to confirm an automatic connection to your WiFi.
  8. Once it is connected, the WiFi icon on your printer will stop blinking and you should hear a sound.
  9. Now follow the on-screen prompts to complete the setup.

  11. Your app will prompt you to feed the document to the scanner. Load it and ensure it is properly aligned and the printer grasps it.

Additional tips and troubleshooting common scanning issues

  • Paper jams – This is the most common issue but usually, it’s just an incorrect placement of the document on the scanner. Ensure you’re properly feeding the document into the scanner to avoid jams.
  • Scanner not detected – Your HP scanner not being detected by your PC or phone could indicate a network issue. Ensure your HP Deskjet 3755 is on the same network connection or restart your router then re-establish the connection.
  • Poor scan quality – Always clean your scanner from any debris or accumulated dust to ensure a clean scan job. Alternatively, you can adjust the quality settings just before you scan to a higher quality for a clearer document.
  • Printer not working – Your HP Deskjet 3755 may stop working if the printer firmware has not been updated in a while. Keep your software up-to-date including your OS and use the HP Print and Scan Doctor troubleshooting tool where necessary.

For efficient scanning,

  • Keep your printer drivers up-to-date and keep the printer’s scan feeder dust-free for clean scan jobs.
  • Preview your documents before scanning and optimize scan settings for optimal scans.
  • Keep your scanned copies on your cloud as backup or for collaboration.
