hp iprint app help, not finding printer
I have been trying for weeks to get a document to print using the HP iPrint Photo App -- with no success. It can't find the printer (HP Photosmart C7280) even though that computer is listed as compatible in the HP support page. So I was delighted to discover that HP has a new printer App, the ePrint Business Print, described as much improved over the iPrint, so I immediately installed a copy. No good. It turns out that this one really does require a printer with ePrint feature (send the file to it by email) and it says in the fine print that the C7280 is not one of the ePrint qualified printers. So I dragged myself back to iTunes and I tried to go back to the iPrint Photo printer again since it is clearly described as for non-AirPrint and non-ePrint compatible. But it is no longer listed in iTunes! So I am thrown back to no printer. Does anyone know anything about this change? Do you know anyone who was able to print using the HP iPrint Photo with a non-airprint non-eprint HP printer, as it says in the description I should be able to do? :confused:
Sorry I posted this on another thread as well, but I am really hoping that someone can solve the mystery of printing on a wireless HP printer with some App.
FingerPrint also cannot find printers
Tim, Thank you for your post. I got very excited when I read your suggestions and immediately installed FingerPrint. I set it to connect with my 4 or 5 printers (including the ones it set up itself) and made sure the PC (Win7) was on the same WiFi network as the iPad and I made sure that Fingerprint was running (using Task Manager). But the iPad2 still does not see any printers. I checked Pages, iBooks, Goodreader, DropBox, mail, Safari, but the printers do not appear anywhere. Out of desperation I rebooted several times and also connected the iPad via USB to iTunes, but nothing. I have now seen "No Printers Found" so many times I am ready to give up printing from iPad! Can you think of anything else I could try?:confused:
Fingerprint out again: How do you "select several times"?
I am sad to say that after my elation with Fingerprint the printers no longer show up on iPad Apps. When you say you have to select the printer several times, how do you do that? When my Fingerprint started not working ("No Printers found") clicking on the FingerPrint did nothing -- there was no opportunity to select printers. So I tried to uninstall and reinstall the software. It complained many times that it could not overwrite DLLs because of authorization problems (I was logged in as administrator). So I skipped those steps. After the reinstallation it still was not allowing my iPad2 to see the printers.

I wrote to Collobos support but have no answer yet. The brief time with being able to print from my iPad was enought to convince me that this is a feature I need.
Fingerprint and network's temperamental behavior
Well forgetting the network and resetting it with its password worked. But that's crazy since the network had been working all along for purposes of connecting with the internet (like when I posted here). I have heard that networks are notoriously temperamental and have had the experience with an internet radio which has to be reset with the password every time I change a station. In David Pogue's missing manual for Windows 7 he gives some hints on setting up a network but ends in frustration saying that networks are a strange part of a computer system and if you run into problems you should ask a 12 year old. He has a point.
