How to display the IP address on an HP LaserJet P4010 / P4014 / P4015 / P4510 / P4515 printer


Any printer connected to a TCP/IP network has an IP address.  Knowing this IP address can be useful for a variety of reasons.  Rather than having to search through the printer's menu or look for the IP address on a spreadsheet or in another system, you can set some printers up to display their IP address right on the main screen.

To set up an HP P4010 series printer (P4010, P4014, P4015, P4510, or P4515) to show its IP address:

- Press the down arrow button once to enter the main menu.  (If the printer is idle or sleeping, press the down arrow button once to wake it up, and then once more to enter the menu.)

- Scroll down through the menu options until you get to Configure Device.

- Press the OK button

- Scroll down until you see System Setup.

- Press the OK button.

- Scroll down to Show Address.

- Press the OK button.

-  Use the up or down arrow to highlight Auto.

- Press the OK button.


If you change your mind and don't want the printer's IP address displayed, you can go back into the same setting and select Off instead of Auto.
