Customer Question

I have just installed a Hewlett Packard 5520e printer and downloaded the supporting app. I can send an email to the printer and it prints but when I just try and print generally from a web page or a picture a prompt box appear to select a printer then it tells me no air printer located ? I just want to be able to press print regardless of what I am in, is there another app I am missing for air print

I would like to provide information and assistance with regard to the problem mentioned in your question.

But first I will need to ask about some details of the case, before I can offer an appropriate and accurate answer to your question:

- What is the supporting app you downloaded for the HP printer to print from the iPad?

- In case it matters... I doubt it, but it might... what is your email system on the iPad? (not the email address, just the name of the program or app that you use to access emails.)
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi the app is the Hewlett Packard eprint one from the apple store. Not sure what you mean about the email thing, I am just using what came as standard on the ipad ?
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.
That's good enough information, thanks.

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4356


states that the HP model 5520 supports Apple AirPrint, which means you should be able to print to it from anything on your iPad... provided both the iPad and the AirPrint-capable wireless printer are on the same wifi network.
And provided your iPad is running the Lion or the Mountain Lion version of MAC OS X.

AirPrint is driverless and so strictly speaking does not need an app.

It's true that you have the 5520e version, not the 5520, but that may not matter.

Let me know if you need further help getting this to work.

Hi how can I check if the ipad is running lion or mountain lion of mac osx ?also I only have one wireless connection and both ipad and printer are on it, still can't print unless I email it to the printer
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.
Click on the multicolored Apple logo, then choose About This Mac, to see the MAC OS X version on your iPad. Let me know what it is.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I really and dumb with this I know, I do not know where the multicoloured apple logo is on my ipad ?
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1633

may explain the process better than I just did... also it's possible the logo is solid black as shown on this page, rather than multicolored.

Hi does ios 6.0.1 mean anything, found it under the general heading in the settings on the ipad
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for providing that information: your iPad is the type that runs Apple iOS 6.

Unfortunately I know little about iOS and so must Opt Out of this question, opening it to any other Expert in this category that can help you with this matter.

Thank you for your efforts

Hi,

I'm a moderator for this topic. I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your Mac, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hi I still don't seem to be able to air print from any page on the Ipad, only by emailing a page to the wireless printer in my home so I would be happy to wait for anyone who may be able to help

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
