I guess that particular Lexmark model isn't wi-fi equipped. Looks like we'll be getting a new printer! I just installed a new wireless gateway, supplied by my ISP and I don't think it has the ability to send wi-fi signals to my desk-top machine.

Thanks for your help.

Bummer! Ah well, at least you know.

So, if you're off to get a new printer, just make sure you get one that specifically states it's an AirPrint wireless capable one. Then, you'll be sure that it will work with your iDevice.

Can anyone help me pleaser? I have an iPad 1 and each time I open an application, it closes it down after a few minutes. This started recently.

Thanks

Hi and welcome to the Forum!

Your iPad is crashing because of a lack of ram. The iPad 1 has only 256mb of ram compared to the ipad2 which has 512mb and the newer iPads which have 1 GB of ram. As apps are only getting bigger with advancing technology the iPad 1 will continue to struggle more and more to keep up. Any sites you may visit through Safari which are graphic intensive will cause crashes also.

There are some steps you can take which will limit this happening as much and these steps will also free up ram.

Limit your location services to the apps you are using now.

Close apps regularly (all apps in your multi task bar are using some ram, even though they are not running and closing them completely will free up this ram)

Go to Settings - Safari and Clear your History and also Clear your Cookies and Data. Safari retains bits of info from every site you visit.....if you would like to have a look first before clearing your History etc. go to Settings - Safari - Advanced - Website Data - Show All Sites. As you can see there's a lot there.

After doing this, it would be a good idea to do a reset of your iPad just to allow everything to settle in nicely. Apple have now ceased updates for the iPad 1 as it is really quite old now in technology terms and although it will still continue to be a great device for certain tasks, it may be time to upgrade to a newer iPad! I do hope these steps help you.

Just in case you may not know of the reset I spoke of.
Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you may see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start.

Hi - suddenly I can't hear many of my Facebook videos -- they play but no sound? Any idea why? I am using the facebook app --- the link takes me to youtube and I can't hear sound ---if I go directly to youtube, I can hear video sound. Any idea why?

Hi, everyone. I hope this is the right section for my question! I have posted many YouTube's before and when I press Reply the YouTube comes up ( not the URL ) and all people have to do is press the arrow. This time it won't work. Could it be because the original video comes from the BBC as opposed to a person? Or have I made a mistake? Thanks everyone! :);) :);)


Peace begins with a smile. :)

I have a new question that I can't seem to find an answer to. When I open Safari there are some icons to pages I no longer want. Can anyone tell me how to delete them? Either from the row on top or the icons on the page that comes up when I first open Safari. Thanks, :);)
I just figured it out myself! I don't know how I got there but there was a choice to add a new folder, I didn't want that so I went back and it gave me a choice to delete folders on the page that I am referi g to above! Sorry this doesn't help anyone else, I know other people know the sequence of how to do it. At least I know it can be done! :);)

:) Peace begins with a smile :)

In the built in Mail app, tap and hold until this appears:
