AirPrint is an important and popular Apple technology that allows you to print through an iOS device or Mac to a compatible printer without putting any set up. It is a built-in printing solution made for Apple computers and mobile devices.
However, most of the HP printers work using the Apple AirPrint technology for achieving a high quality of printing solution without installing any printer driver. Sometimes, while you start any print job through your AirPrint-enabled printer, you will find an error message saying “No AirPrint Printers Found”.
This error problem usually occurs when your HP printer and device are on different wireless networks. Therefore, you don't have to panic. Whenever you get "No AirPrint Printers Found" issue, or if the AirPrint is not working, firstly check the wireless network. Just make sure and verify if each of these devices are connected on the same wi-fi network.
Moreover, you can reach the root of this issue and get the possible solutions for this AirPrint error with this blog-post until you know the efficient troubleshooting directions.
‘No AirPrint Printers Found' is a system message generated by the printer inbuilt with the iOS AirPrint feature. This means that you are trying to print a document from another application using the Print button but iOS is not allowing Printer Pro to be launched this way.
1. Check Your Printer Compatibility with AirPrint
First of all, when 'No AirPrint Printers Found' message shows on iPhone, iPad or Mac, you must verify that the printer being used supports the AirPrint feature or not.
In fact, it should be listed in the list of AirPrint Supported Printers by Apple itself. Else, we can not use AirPrint if the printer is old or not compatible. Unfortunately, there is nothing possible in such a case.
2. Check AirPrint Works on Private Wi-Fi Network
It's like a thumb rule that the AirPrint will not work and doesn't detect AirPrint Printers if you are connected on a Public Network, Cellular Data, or Hotspot. So, always make sure whichever iOS/macOS device and AirPrint enabled printer you use, should be working on the same private Wi-Fi network.
3. Verify if App works with AirPrint Feature
As you print anything using Apple’s Applications like Safari, iWork, Notes or any of the default apps, then it should not show any inability to print error on iPhone, iPad or even on Mac. Whereas, when you use any third-party apps, you must read the features, just to verify if that supports AirPrint or printing capabilities or not.
This can also be done by launching the Share Sheet or clicking on the Action button and then Print option. But if the Print option is not showing, then this means that the app doesn’t work with AirPrint or it might not have printing abilities.
4. Ensure to Select the Correct Printer
In few organizations or offices, more than one printer is used on the same brand. Therefore, it becomes a bit confusing to find the right one we want to use. So to eliminate confusion, you can compare the exact model number of printer that you are trying to connect with the iPhone/macOS.
Along with this, you can confirm that your printer supports and forwards AirPrint. The printer should be connected to the router or access point not directly to the Wi-Fi.
5. Update Printing App and iDevice/MacOS
If 'No AirPrint Printers Found' error message is still found then simply check your iOS/Mac device for updates. This means that your iOS device should be running on the latest software iOS 12 or later. Also, the app that you are using should be updated to latest. In the other case, it gives interruption between sync of your iOS device and Supported Airprint.
To check device software updates in iPhones: Go to Settings App >> General >> Software Update.
To check App update: Go to App Store >> Profile >> Scroll down >> Navigate printer App that you’re using still.
To check software updates in Mac: Click on the Apple menu >> System Preferences >> Software Update.
In case if no software updates are available in the Apple menu, then go to the Mac App Store and update it from there. This instruction applies to your MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac or any Apple Mac computer.
