@RET2020, Welcome to HP Support Community!


I see that you have issues with printing from your iPad, to be able to assist you better, I'd like to know the following-


Are you using HP Smart or AirPrint option?

Are the devices connected to the same network?


Meanwhile, try the steps below if you have any emergency printing requirements-

The following steps temporarily disconnect your Apple device from the Internet. If you are printing web-based content such as a webpage, cloud-based document, or an email, open it before proceeding.

  1. On the printer, touch the Wi-Fi Direct/HP wireless direct icon  to confirm the feature is on.

  2. On your Apple device, tap Settings, and then tap Wi-Fi.

  3. Under Choose a network, select your printer with DIRECT in the name.

  4. If prompted for a password, type 12345678. This is the default password to log in.

  5. Try to print.

  6. Reconnect to your local Wi-Fi network after the print job completes.

Keep me posted for further assistance.
