I recently purchased the HP3050a printer as it was compatible with Airprint. Once i set everything up via my PC, i tested the Airprint from my iPad and iPhone and all ws ok.
Hopwever, now i am finding it impssible to print from an Apple device - it just states "No AirPrint Printers Found".
I am able to print wirelessly via my laptop and PC but just not using my Apple devices.
The only method i have found that works is to physically unplug the printer frm the mains and then plug it back in - this kind of gives it a kick up the backside. But surely that's not the answer is it??
Can anyone help please?

I hope you are well and sorry to learn that you having this issue;
Although you can could print at 1st from the devices check that if the router supports Bonjour (MDNS)
At the time that you are trying to print do you have the devices with bluetooth enable please unable this is known to cause issues. Turn off the Bluetooth is on to test if that is creating a problem.
Is the IOS devices update to the latest update.

Hi there pfhannan,
This the main support page for the HP Deskjet 3050 GO HERE,
Can you try HP eprint home and biz you can get it from the Apple app to see if you face the same issue with this app. .
Also make sure that your router supports (mDNS) Bonjour that might be the issue.
I will also set an Static IP Address to the printer and last, I will set google public DNS servers to make sure that you are not having a DNS resolution issue those are 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168
Go to settings => WI-FI, click ">" it should be to the right of the network connection you will be setting the DNS in.
I will set it as static so it does not changes if you turn the device off.
Let me know the outcome or you still need more assistance, Include the complete model of your router and descripton of your network setup. I will do my best to help you
Hope this helps!
