Windows 10: Cannot find wifi printer

Been fiddling about with this for a while. I've got a HP 3070A which I can connect to using the HP Smart App and can scan to the PC using this app.

It will not install the printer onto Windows for me so I'm unable to print. Windows itself is unable to detect the printer.

Any suggestions as to how I resolve this? Google as usualy brings up a myriad of solutions many of which require downloading something to the mahince in order to 'clean' it .


Thanks.

Joy of WiFi printers...

On Win 10, download and install soft pack from HP follow wizard
Manual



The way i would go:
On printer set static IP in the range of your local network
On PC "add printer" wizard from control panel by TCP/IP
