Make sure your Wi-Fi network and printer setup meet connection requirements. Restart the printer and the computer or mobile device to clear possible error conditions. Make sure the printer is not connected to a computer with a USB cable.
Restart devices

If your printer connects to a Wi-Fi network, disconnect your computer or mobile device from the network name (SSID), and then reconnect it to the same network name your printer is connected to. If the printer is available and has a ready status, the issue is resolved.

Start by checking your hardware

If you`re using a wired printer, make sure that the printer cable is properly connected from the printer to your PC. For wireless printers, check the wireless connection. Make sure the printer`s wireless option is turned on and available.

Check the printer connection status: Make sure the wireless signal is on, and the printer is connected to the same network as your computer or mobile device. If your printer has a light next to a Wireless icon or button , make sure the light is on. If it is off or blinks, the printer is disconnected from the network.
If your printer is compatible with Windows 10, download and run the Print and Scan Doctor to detect and fix isses. If problems persist, reinstall the latest HP printing software. Download and Install the latest HP printer software and driver.
The key here is that it`s the local network being used so both devices must be active on that. So be sure to check that the smartphone is connected to WiFi and it`s the same network that the printer is on. If that is the case and there are still issues, it could be the software the phone is using.
Make sure that both ends of the USB cable are correctly inserted into the computer and the printer. Try disconnecting and reconnecting the USB cable at both ends. Disconnect the printer and the computer and reconnect them. Try another USB port if available.
Many computer connectivity issues are caused by something as simple as a loose cable. Make sure all of the cables connecting your computer to your printer are fully in place and completely fastened at both ends. If your printer is not turning on, the power cord could also be an issue.
Run the sound problems troubleshooter

Right-click the notification area speaker icon , and then select Troubleshoot sound problems. Select the device you want to troubleshoot, and then click Next to start the troubleshooter. If a recommended action displays, select Apply this fix, and then test for sound.

Make sure that both ends of the USB cable are correctly inserted into the computer and the printer. Try disconnecting and reconnecting the USB cable at both ends. Disconnect the printer and the computer and reconnect them. Try another USB port if available.
Check to see if your internet router is working, and make sure that your printer is connected to the same wireless network as your computer. If your printer is part of the same network and your internet is working, the printer may be out of range, or your internet connection might be too weak.

printer pulling sheets back in
ANSWER : That is strange. Only thing I can surmise is that since the A5 is a smaller size, maybe the printer thinks it is supposed to be printing on A4 and that’s why it tries to continue to print. Maybe a setting off in your software?
