Printing documents from a computer and a laptop Now no one surprise. But the files that deserve the output on paper can be on a number of other devices. Therefore, it is important to know, how to connect the tablet to the printer and print texts, graphics and photos, and what to do if there is no contact between devices.

Find out if there is such a mode, it will help branded technical description. It is useful to contact and to Special forums on the Internet. In the absence of a normal connector, you will have to buy an adapter.
If you need to connect several devices at once, need to buy a USB hub. But in this mode, the gadget will accelerately discharge. It will be necessary to keep it nearby from the outlet or use PoverBank. Connection on a wire is simple and securely, you can print any document. However, the mobility of the gadget rarely decreases, which suits not all.
In some cases it is worth using HP EPRINT application. You need to select the program for each version of the tablet separately. Search app anywhere, except the official site, is categorically not recommended.
We will have to start a unique mailing address ending on @hpeprint. Com. It is worth considering a number of restrictions:

Difficulties when using HP printers may occur if the gadget does not support the MOPRIA protocol or has Android OS below version 4.4. If the system does not see the printer, it is necessary to verify that MOPRIA mode is enabled; If this interface cannot be used, it is necessary to apply the HP Print Service Print Solution. The MOPRIA plugin disabled, by the way, often leads to the fact that the printer is in the list, but you cannot give the command to print. If the system is connected to USB network printing, you must thoroughly configure the printer to send information on the network channel.
Serious difficulties arise if the printer does not support either USB nor Bluetooth nor Wi-Fi. The output becomes registering the printing device in Google Cloud Print. Such a service allows you to provide remote connection to printers of all stamps from anywhere in the globe. but It is best to use CLOUD READY class devices. When the direct connection to the cloud service is not supported, you will need to connect the printer through the computer.

In one-time format it can be done by throwing the file to the disk, and then sending it to print from a computer. Normal work is possible when using Google account and Google Chrome browser. In the browser settings, select the settings, and then go to the Advanced Settings section. The lower point just will be Google Cloud Print.
By adding a printer, in the future you will always have to keep the on-computer on which an account has been created.
Of course, it is necessary to log in with the tablet, which contains the required file. Google Gmail for Android has no print options directly. The output is to visit the account through the same browser. When you press the “Print” button, switching Google Cloud Print, where no problems have no problem.
