Question about HP PhotoSmart C4385 All-in-One Printer
I moved and unplugged my printer now it won't print. It will copy or scan but not print.
Check the connection to the computer. Something has happened to the cable or port or it is not inserted properly.

These errors are usually caused by a failed scan, a bad installation, communication problems or software conflicts. Follow the steps below until the problem is corrected.
Step one: Restart the computer
Close all programs and restart the computer. A required task might have stopped running or the system resources might have decreased due to tasks left running. Restarting the computer will refresh all Windows tasks as well as increase the available system resources.
Step two: Check for the correct entries in the Device Manager
Verify that the unit was installed on a DOT4 virtual port in the Device Manager.
If any of these entries are missing, the software did not install properly. Review the information in the HP document Troubleshooting Installation Issues for USB-Connected HP All-in-One Products in Microsoft(R) Windows (bpu01858) for installation assistance.
Step three: Check for communication problems between the all-in-one and the computer
