Hi, my name is Dan and new to the iPad Forum.
I'm looking forward to an interesting & insightful experience here. I've got a question and hope someone can shed some
light on this. I am having a problem printing from my iPad 4 while using the Dropbox application. Using the same app but printing from my iPhone, I'm having no problem at all.
Can anyone give some insight into what could be the issues?

Hi Dan - I'm assuming that you are using the same printer for both the iPhone & iPad? If so, printing from the iPad uses Apple's AirPrint Technology - thus, your printer likely has this feature since the iPhone prints from Dropbox. Below is a post that I left in another thread last month. I would suggest following some of those suggestions (and you might want to power recycle the printer) - let us know your results and please post back if still having a problem - Dave
My usual recommendations: 1) Restart or Reset the iPad, if not already done (directions below); 2) Power Recycle your modem & router, i.e. turn off each (or pull the plugs), wait a while, and sequentially re-power the modem first & then the router; 3) Forget the Network - go into Settings -> Wi-Fi, then open the dialog box for the active network and forget; re-establish a connection; and 4) Reset Network Settings - go into Settings -> General; pick 'Reset' @ the bottom and select 'Reset Network....'. Let us know if any of these suggestions helps - if not, please post back - good luck!
When an app (or several) are misbehaving, I usually go through the following steps:
1. Force Close - open the multi-tasking bar (double tap the 'home buttom' or use multi-gesturing and swipe up); press & hold an app until all begin to 'jiggle'; find the offending app(s) and press the 'red circle w/ minus sign' - return to the home screen & try again.
2. Restart - press & hold the 'Sleep/Awake' (a.k.a. power) button until a red slider appears (may take a few seconds) - move the slider to turn off the iPad; then press & hold the same button until the Apple logo appears - wait for a restart.
3. Reset - press & hold the 'Power' and 'Home' buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears - this may take a longer time, so have patience; the iPad will 're-boot' - NOTE that none of these maneuvers will alter your apps, files, or settings.
