My I pad can't connect with the printer

HP Recommended
HP print 61 deskjet 2540

I have tried pretty much everything to get my I pad to connect to my printer, I've printed off the information sheet and followed the instructions, I've also turned the WPS on my router off and on, I'm really at a loss what to do, but all I keep getting is 'air printer not found' I would be really grateful for any advice

Hello, @Julie008 - Hope you are well 🙂
 

Thank you for becoming an HP Forum member. It is a great location to get help from the community, get suggestions and find what has worked for others!

 

Going through your post, I understand that you are unable to connect your iPad with the Deskjet 2540 printer. Let’s try the steps listed below to try and fix this:

 

  1. On the printer, make sure a solid blue light is on next to the Wi-Fi Direct/HP wireless direct button  or an Wi-Fi Direct/HP wireless direct  icon displays on the control panel.

  2. Press the Wi-Fi Direct/HP wireless direct button or navigate the control panel menu settings to find and touch Wi-Fi Direct/HP wireless direct.

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

  4. Under the Choose a network menu, select your printer. The printer name begins with DIRECT.

    If prompted, type a password. The default password is 12345678.

 

Now, try and print as suggested below:

  1. Open the document, photo, email, or webpage you want to print, and then tap the Action icon  or  to display menu options.

  2. Tap Print or the Print icon , depending on the type of file you want to print.

  3. On the Printer Options menu, tap Select Printer, and then select your printer from the list.

 

Check http://hp.care/2pSDIl2 for detailed instructions.

 

That should do the trick, let me know the outcome!

Good luck 🙂
