Use your Apple devices such as an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch over a wireless network to print to your HP printer. AirPrint mobile solution makes this possible. Setup AirPrint on your 123 HP DeskJet 3050 printer with the help of our instructions given below.
Before connecting your printer to a wireless or Wi-Fi direct connection, you need to collect some essentials for the AirPrint setup.
First, check whether the Apple iOS device you have is iOS version 4.2 or above. Then, make sure you connect the 123 HP DeskJet 3050 printer and your Apple iOS device on the same network. Next, cross check these requirements to avoid issues during the AirPrint setup.
Before you can print, you must connect both the Apple iOS device and printer either through a wireless network or through Wi-Fi Direct/HP wireless direct. If you’ve connected your printer to your computer using a USB cable, then you must use Wi-Fi Direct/HP wireless direct.
Wireless network connection
First, disconnect the USB cable or Ethernet cable. To connect the printer to the network, you need to select Setup, Network or Wireless menu and select Wireless Setup wizard. Then, follow the instructions that appear on screen to connect the printer to your network.
After making the connections, try to print a test page. In case you are not connected, move on to the Wi-Fi Direct or Wireless direct connection.
Wi-Fi Direct or HP wireless direct connection
First, take a look at the control panel and check whether the solid blue light next to the Wi-Fi Direct/HP wireless direct button or a Wi-Fi Direct/HP wireless direct icon displays on the control panel is on.
Then, 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.
On your Apple iOS device, tap Settings, and then tap Wi-Fi. 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.
If you are using a Wi-Fi Direct/HP wireless direct connection, be sure to go back into Wi-Fi settings and connect your Apple iOS device to your network.
Print from your Apple iOS device
First, check whether the printer is switched on and it is in a ready state. Ifn case the printer is in sleep mode (power light is dim), turn the printer on or press the power button to wake it. Then, choose the document that you want to print, and tap Action icon or display menu options.
Next, touch Print or the Print icon based on the file type that you wish you to print. On the Printer Options menu, tap Select Printer, and then select your printer from the list. Then, tap Options to change other settings if necessary. Some options, such as paper size, might not be adjustable and must be changed from the printer.
The Options menu might not display if your printer is black ink only. Then, select the number of copies you’d like to print, and then tap Print. In case you are using a Wi-Fi Direct/HP wireless direct connection, be sure to go back into Wi-Fi settings and connect your Apple iOS device to your network.
