    In the meantime, I have tried unplugging the printer & leaving it off for awhile. Message is still there & still can't make copies.
    Again, thanks.

Gammi, unplug the printer and unhook it from the computer. go to this site: and download the latest drivers. Uninstall the old drivers from the machine. Shut the computer off. wait a minute or so...reboot install the new drivers, XP will prompt you to plug the printer back in and that should work. Let me know what happens, Thanks Tim
