    I have an hp desktop3050A all in one j611 series printer. I am having a problem with the printer recognizing my iPad and it will not print. The iPad does recognize the printer but still will not print. It does print from an IPod touch, and also prints off my desktop computer. Does anyone have any idea of what the problem could be or any suggestions on what I can do to fix it?

    Is there an LED on your printer to show that the Wifi is on? If it's been a while since you used the printer, sometimes you have to re-establish the wifi connection.

    I have the j611 and the blue and the white should be on, Leave the printer on all the time.

    Hi Kevin - I'm using FingerPrint to output my iPad to my 2 USB connected non-AirPrint machines; whenever 'contact' is lost, I go through 1 of 3 processes (not necessarily in any order but will try to print after each step): 1) Power recycle your printer, i.e. pull the plug (or turn off the machine), wait a short time, re-power and give it a try; 2) Restart or Reset the iPad (directions HERE, if unfamiliar w/ the procedures); and 3) Power recycle your router & modem, i.e. remove the power from both, wait a while, and then sequentially start the modem first and then then the router.

    Let us know if any of these steps solve your problem - may help others - good luck! :)
