AirPrint suddenly won't work

Yesterday morning my HP110a stopped working with airprint. iPad and iPhone 4 with iOS 4.3, having worked fine before, suddenly cannot find the printer on the network. Using Safari, I can access the printer's webpage from the iPad and iPhone, my MacBook Pro finds the printer with Bonjour, ePrinting works fine - but AirPrint doggedly refuses to work.

 

I have been through all the troubleshooting points - checked network, checked all software / firmware is up to date, even updated iOS to 4.3.1 to no avail. 

 

The need to print from the iPad is urgent - what can I do?

On the iPad's Home Screen, tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings and reboot the iPad.

Thanks, but I have tried this and it has made no difference. Any other ideas?

Re: AirPrint suddenly won't work

Solved this tonite! Changing the Internet Printing Protocols setting from Off to On, suddenly made the printer findable via AirPrint. Interesting! Why don't HP make it clear that IPP needs to be on for AirPrint to work. I have wasted several hours trying to sort this out.
