    Hi,
    Reset your modem and wireless router. Unplug the power to the modem first and then the wireless router.
    Restart your computer and try again. Good Luck

    I just wanted to say thanks for the advice Tim. I downloaded the print n share app and was able to print to my printers and the two at the office with no problem. It was so easy it was scary.

    Thanks for the help you give not only to me but to so many on this board

    Unhappy Still can't print!

    I've powered my iPad off and on, and still my B210a HP Photosmart Plus Printer won't print. It has found my printer, but hangs on '"contacting printer". This is very frustrating...neither Apple nor HP will take responsibility.

    I'm sorry to hear that you're continuing to have problems. You say that you can print from your PC to this printer without any difficulty. So we know the printer is working OK!! I'm assuming your printing from your PC using WiFi and not via a cable connection, because some printers have both USB and WiFi. If your computer is connected to the printer via USB then this could cause problems trying to print via WiFi - most printers can only be connected by one method at once.

    Let's assume that you are connected by only WiFi. In that case can you go to the Control Panel on your PC, find 'Printers', select the HP printer and have a look at the properties and other tabs. Could you copy and paste them here, so that we can see how the PC thinks the printer is configured. Please be sure to edit out any passwords or other personal details, though, before posting this information. It should help us understand how the printer is set-up and why the iPad can't contact it.

    Thanks for this info. I really needed it!

    I have an HP Deskjet 6988. Does anyone know if the print n share app allow an iPad to print directly? EuroSmartz says that it hasn't tested this printer model.

    I am so excited to read about Print n Share. Since I received my iPad, I've been unhappy thinking I would need to replace my still hardworking Canon MP640 printer to buy an HP that doesn't always get great reviews.

    Thank you for the suggestion.

    For what it's worth, I am finding that print n share is a great app for iPad printing. If the so-called "direct printing" function doesn't work, the sponsor's no-cost download, WePrint, is likely to make it work. Also, the sponsor's support staff is terrific.

    EXACTLY the same problem I am having- see my full post on this date above- when first set up, it worked, the next day it did not. The printer shows up, but issue a print cmd and nothing happens. VERY frustrating!
