QUICK TIP:  If you are encountering issues while printing, or if you see the No AirPrint Printer found error message, check on the following:
 
  • Ensure that the printer is powered ON.  If your printer is already powered ON, you may perform a powercycle by powering it OFF then turning it ON again. 
  • Ensure that the printer and your iOS device are connected to the same network.  To know how you can connect your printer to the same network, check the printer documentation. 
  • Ensure that the printer has paper and enough ink or toner installed. 
  • Verify if the printer hardware is free of any error messages displayed on its control panel.
