    Hi and welcome to the forum. It's good to "see" you and we hope you enjoy your visits.

    If nothing has changed in your set-up, other than you upgraded to iOS 7.1, and everything worked as you wished before the upgrade - I'd take a look at the printer driver(s). It may be that either/both printer manufacturers need to update the drivers so they'll work properly with the new iOS.

    So, I'd go to each manufacture's site and look for updates to your specific printers. If you can't find them, may I suggest you get with the manufacturer customer service to ask for their help.

    Hope this helps. Good luck.

    I have tried up dating print drivers, but no upgrade is need
    I guess HP & Brother have not got to those printers to change update

    You need to have an AirPrinter, and I guess HP has them.
