Printing from SGT10.1Support

    Hi folks,

    Is there a preferred way of printing from the SGT10.1? It looks as though it cannot be done via USB. So, what about wirelessly? Either Bluetooth or WiFi. The app PrinterShare looks good but, so far, I've not been able to find a compatible printer.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Would that be the Deskjet 3000 by any chance?

    Regarding the app, are you referring to HP ePrint?

    Thanks,

    I installed Cloud Print on my Tab and it uses WiFi to print to my 5 year old Canon printer, which is connected to my Ubuntu machine.

    Have you verified that PrinterShare does not work? I ask because my Brother printer is not certified to work with the app, but it works perfectly.

    Try Brother iPrint. It works perfectly with my printer.

    Good to know, thanks!

    My main go-to printer is also connected (via USB) to a Kubuntu machine, which in turn shares the printer via IPP within the LAN. I haven

    Thank you, but I am not the poster having a problem. I was just sharing that while my printer is not certified for Printer Share, it does work. The Brother app works as well, but that will not really help the OP here.

    Hello Everyone,

    Apologies for not having replied. I have instant email notification enabled but I received no emails letting me know that people had replied.

    So, to try and answer the points raised. I haven't tried PrinterShare yet because I don't have a WiFi enabled printer. My current printer only has USB connectivity. In my naivety, I thought it would be possible to connect the SGT10.1 to the printer via USB. I have now identified two printers - both HP - that are compatible with PrinterShare. Thus, a new purchase is imminent.

    Finally, thanks for all your replies.

    You don't need a wifi printer to print wirelessly. I have a wifi-capable printer, but I ultimately got it working as a cloud printer, connected via USB to my pc.

    If you are going to go out and buy a printer, I'd recommend getting a Samsung unit... then native printing will work from the Tab (versus depending upon the "Share" option within apps).

    Hi Mr Lucky,

    Many thanks for your reply.

    I do need to use a WiFi-enabled printer as I don't want the inconvenience of having to go via my laptop. The darned thing takes fifteen minutes to get up-and-running from a cold start and I usually just want to print one page of A4.

    Take your point about going for a Samsung printer. I thought on similar lines to what you have said. However, from what I could see, Samsung appear to have very limited choice of inkjet printers. They seem to target business users with laser printers, which are more expensive. Having said that, I'll take another look at their website.

    Hi folks,

    Well, I now have a solution to this problem. Yeah!

    I purchased an HP Deskjet 3000 J310 Series Wi-Fi enabled printer for 45 quid and installed PrinterShare on the SGT10.1. Works a treat.

    One happy chappie :):):)

    I have a Wi-Fi print share set up (d-link product). I have tried printershare and HP's ePrint and neither can see the device/printer.
    I feel sure there is an app that can do this, but the searches I tried showed nothing that gave me confidence.
    (From my computers, all print over the Wi-Fi link but use IPP and I have to give the IP address.)
    TIA.
