Hello. My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Before we proceed with any troubleshooting,please once shut down your iPad and turn it back on.
Let me know when this is done.

Can’t acsess the printer app.
Mac Support Specialist: Suhasini Velu,
 replied 6 months ago

When you find something you want to print, tap the “Share” button, which looks like a box with an arrow protruding from the top in most apps. Select “Print” from the list of options and then tap “Printer.” Select your printer model from the list and then set the desired number of copies. Tap “Print” to send the document to the printer.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
That worked. Still does not show a printer app on home page.
Mac Support Specialist: Suhasini Velu,

May be the app crashed, that could be the reason.

Mac Support Specialist: Suhasini Velu,

But that should work this way.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
But I can’t access the App Store to fix it.

When you open the app store what comes up?

I mean when you open app store, what exactly do you see?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I try to accept all the terms,it then says we’ve run into a problem. It always does this.

Am sorry, can you try downloading any other free apps.

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
There is something else wrong here. Lots of time on this with local techs. Now lots of time with you. We need to look for a different answer.
Mac Support Specialist: Suhasini Velu,
 replied 6 months ago

Am not sure, but for now if you want to print you can try the method which I recommended.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No disrespect to you intended. Apple products are expensive, I expect them to work! Please notify whomever and let’s get this fixed or find a solution. Time is important to us all!

Hi! I am Justin. I see the previous expert has opened the question up to the rest of the experts. Are you still in need of assistance?

Still won’t open the apps.

My apologies for the late response. My internet went out at the house.

Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 6 months ago

It sounds like there is a real software issue with your iPad. Do you have a computer you can back it up on so that we can restore it?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
That’s ok. Apparently Apple is having lots of trouble with these I pads. I think it’s the machine itself.
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 6 months ago

I kind of doubt it. I have several and do not and have not had issue through all of their product lines. Sometimes things happen. That is what support is for.

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 6 months ago

If you have a computer you can plug it into I can give you a guide to back it up and restore it. That will likely resolve the issue.

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Been through lots of local techs and experts online. No results yet.
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 6 months ago

Did any of them restore the iPad?

Still won’t open the apps or talk to printer.
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 6 months ago

Did any of them restore the iPad?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
What does restore mean?
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 6 months ago

Back it up to a computer and wipe that thing clean. Empty as the day you bought it. Then test it to see if it works. You likely have a corrupt filesystem.

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No other computers in the house. This one came through Verizon.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
If this machine has a corrupt file system it came on the machine.
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 6 months ago

Not always. It can corrupt with use. Certain applications that are poorly written can cause issues. Typically they don't make it into the App Store, but it does happen. Are you backup up to iCloud?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I probably don’t use 5% of this machines capacity. Not a tech person. If I just find a Apple store can they fix it?
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 6 months ago

They sure can. I think that if you are ok with wiping it that the best bet would be to do that first. It is a very easy process.

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Probably best if I take it to a store. I buy Apple because of quality. Or at least I thought they were quality. Just want them to work.
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 6 months ago

Me to. Which is why I am trying to offer you a solution, but you keep deferring to not take my help. Do you want to resolve this or not? I am sorry if that sounds harsh, but the last few interchanges have been about me trying to help you and you telling me no, which is super not helpful for you or me.

What Customers are Saying:

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
