If you can provide the detail, we can work around this issue better.
Open the cover, remove the toner and clean them out.. If it is inkjet then clear the nozzle and contact strip of cartridge.
For Toner clean with the air blower, then internal area of printer also clear.  Insert back then check. 
If it fails, power off Printer, shut down PC, unplug the printer, for 10 min., then plug it again and power on pc then printer.
Check the status and let me know.

AFTER SP3 installed network printer not working

You should go into Start>Printers and Faxes, write down the exact printers that you have (including server name or IP address) and then delete them by right-clicking on each printer and removing it. Once they're gone, add them back by using the Add Printer wizard or by browsing the network to find them and re-connect them. Since you specify that the network printers aren't working, I'm guessing that local (USB, parallel) printers still work properly. This would rule out the local print spooler, and since you didn't mention that everyone else can't print, it's probably not the print server either.

Printer does not print. allplugs are ok

Dose the printer show up under printers and faxes? Dose it show the words ready or work off line under the printer? If the printer shows work off line, right click the printer and take the check away from work off line. It should change the wording to ready and start printing.

Printer will not work with new computor

Be sure that your printer is compatible with your new computer
You have to install the printer on the new computer in order to get your printer working
Run the installation CD or download the printer program from the internet.


If you already have your printer installed and it is not working

Try doing this
disconnect printer from computer
cancel documents in queue
if using a straight USB connection, delete all instances of printer. else remove duplicate printer icons.
reboot & reconnect printer (swap cables if not detected)
