    I bought a HP 5150 printer yesterday, set it up, printed from my iPhone ... Great
    Today neither my iPhone or iPad will find the printer, can anyone suggest why please?

    Hi Julie - welcome to the forum! :)

    Just for starters, try several simple steps; first, power recycle the printer (i.e. off, wait a little, then on) - if that does not work you may want to 'Restart' and if not effective, then 'Reset' your devices - directions HERE, if not familiar w/ these procedures. I'm assuming that all of these devices are on the same Wi-Fi network and that feature is activated?

    Good luck and please post back you results!

    It's ok now thanks, unplugged then moved it, it's now working fine. Thinking about reason why ... I moved it closer to the router, could this have made the difference?

    Glad that the printer is now working - congrats!

    I feel that the 'power recycle' was the solution - :)
