IPad 2 OS 5, all of a sudden I cannot print

I bought my IPad 2, first day of release (64 GB, 3G AT&T ver), and I am usin the most current update of OS 5. I use PrintcentralPro. Front the first dai I have been able to print from e-mails, web pages, pictures, etc... Just fine. I first select my printer in PrintCentral Pro exit from that app and whatever app I go to and print from uses that printer. I was on the Web with MagicJack the other day (they don't have phone CS), and afterwords I tried to copy and paste the conversation log to Word, nothing pasted excepted the CS reps hidden name...they must have the page protected so you cannot keep a record of the conversation....very shady company; anyway ever since that time, if a coincidence or not I cannot print from anyplace except PrinecentralPro...all other apps say it cannnot find any air printers, even when I have chosen eprint or wi-fi printers it makes no difference. I uninstalled PrintPro, shut down and restarted, reloaded the app from the app store, shut down the iPad and restarted it....still no luck, so I unplugged printer, modem, PC, router and iPad and rebooted and I still can not print outside of the PrintPro app. Has something gone wrong with my Ipad2, do I need to send it to Apple Service, should I just take some Prozac and wait for it to magically fix itself....I have seen some similar comments about the same phantom print stop, so I think there is more to this. Please help, I have to take. My wife out of country as she is critically ill, and I need to print out all the medical records I have scanned and need this print to work... I sincerely am in a bind and need your help, so please if you have any solutions please share them... Most sincerely, leonard
