Wireless printing from 20.04 HP Envy 5540

I’m the only user root if I issue sudo,
I’m a member of lpadmin
In printer, properties, access control my name is in ‘deny except’ so I should be able to print.

Lubuntu finds the printer easily but when I try to print I’m asked for a password, there isnt one! Even the root users pasword (mine) will not work.
Ive tried a number of fixes but nothing…
Any help much appreciated.

Thanks All. Aamcle

I cant even get it to print via usb still the same issue. Ive even installed it as my printer not shared.

Google “HP Envy 5540 password”.
The password could be the printer’s Wireless Direct Password,
or maybe the password of your wifi router.
