      Hi Bob, generally you’ll need to make sure the printer and your phone are both connecting to the same Wi-Fi network. If they are and it’s still not working with the above steps, your printer may have an app available in your phone’s app store to help with printing wirelessly. If you can’t find it, you can also check with your printer’s manufacturer.
