Check your printer setup to make sure the printer is online, and not set to offline. If the printer has offline checked, remove the check by clicking on the checkmark to re-set it to online. Are print jobs building up in the print que?

With the printer power on, unplug and then plug in the printer from/to the computer. This should force the printer to be reinstalled.
Check the printer status.
Click START>Control Panel>Devices and Printers>click on your printer. check the status for any error messages. On the printer status, delete all pending jobs. Once the printer status display shows that all pending jobs have been deleted, retry printing.
Let me know if printing is reestablished. Thanks.

Switching from copy to print from computer


If you look carefully at the printer you'll note that there is no button for "Print" and the reason for this is that all the other functions are for using the printer as if it wasn't connected, nor needed a computer.

All your printing functions that DO use a computer require you to interact with the printer via the computer.

In short, to use the printer from the computer you'll need to make sure you've installed the correct drivers (see your installation CD or the Canon website) and then plug the printer in using a USB cable connection to your computer. If the computer recognises the printer you'll then be able to print.

In a nutshell if your printer is connected and drivers installed properly it doesn't matter what your printer has selected on the printers own control panel, you just print :)

Hope that helps.

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer


Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

Every printer has a unique print driver on computer, and each and every printer uses a different one, so there goes it cant be my computer. The way to tell if it is a printer or computer problem on your machine is to Turn off, unplug from computer, ensure your printer has paper, power it on, wait for ready/online lamp, then press the "go" button 5 times super FAST. Status page should print if it does, then your problem is in fact the computer or the print driver not installed correctly on your computer, as I suspect may be the case.

Post back once you have verified if you have a printer or a computer problem.
