Thank you for your response, just try the following solution, wont take much of your time.
1. Check if the printer is plugged in properly. Confirm that printer power plug is connected to the printer and plugged into a live power outlet. After the printer is plugged in, the printer switches on automatically. There is no power button on the printer.
If the printer will not operate, see "The printer will not operate after it is plugged in"

3. Another possible reason to this problem is the operation of the print spool. If the print spool is not operating correctly, cancel print spooling and print with the print data sent directly to the printer.

Is your network lan or wireless? If lan check cables, if wireless check ip address. Your system printers have to see the device and if wireless it will be assigned an IP address.
