AirPrint Support News: Six HP Officejet Printers Added

Is anyone having problems with getting AirPrint service working on their printers? This is a new service from Apple and so far to date this will only work on certain printers.

AirPrint for iOS devices only compatible with certain HP printers and we have found that it does not work on our HP DeskJet F4580 printer, which to be honest is not the best printer in the world but nether the less we want it to work.

Anyway, thanks to 9to5Mac they have revealed another six HP printers that will work with AirPrint and they include: Officejet 6500A e-AiO, Officejet 7500A Wide Format e-AiO, Officejet 6500A Plus e-AiO, Officejet Pro 8500A Plus e-AiO, Officejet Pro 8500A e-AiO and the Officejet Pro 8500A Premium e-AiO.

If you are having problems with getting AirPrint working there are a few things you can do to make it work, if you would like to activate the AirPrint service on Mac OS X 10.6.5 for iOS devices please read our article here, or if you use Windows then read here.

Please let us know if this service is working for you and what printer you are using, if you have it working but experiencing problems then we would love to know what issues you are having.

    I recently bought HP Officejet 6500A and updated my iphone 3GS to iOS 4.2.

    When I select "print"->"select printer", the iphone searched for the printer and couldn't find it. Not sure why there is no option to specify the printers ip address in this case. A simple solution for users who may want to override the search mechanism.

    As for the HP printer, I could print test page via wireless connection from Windows XP and Windows 7. Strangley the one from Windows 7 was very slow – am not spending time on this right now – as long as i can print from somewhere.
