Computer sends to printer but printer does not pick up the print
When I push the print button, it automatically does not print.
another thing is that on the buttons of the printer, the start one is green but the one where we either need to put paper or add a new ink cartridge it is just red and it blinks all the time
There is also a self-help troubleshooting guide there which is very useful.
The blinking red light means you have a cartridge which needs replacing. Right click the little printer icon in the bottom left corner of the screen and select printer settings, then maintenance then replace cartridge.

First make sure that you can print, then do simple things first check cables and check settings. Do you get a dial tone? Are you getting a dial-tone when sending. pick up the phone and see if you can dial out. Refer to the manual on automatic send and receive faxes.
Obviosly your magazine (Place of taking paper) of the printer is set to legal. The lights is lighting, couse the printer is telling you: You want me to print on letter, but I don have any letter, so please confirm that you want me to print on legal. In order to avoid this set the printer to all types of paper available.

Connect the multi-function printer to a phone line. Most printers with fax capability have more than one phone jack, so make sure you are plugged into the right one.
Turn the printer on and access the start-up menu. Pick an answering mode based on your expected usage of the fax capabilities of your machine (see the next steps for more information about this).
Put the printer in manual mode if you expect little fax traffic. The manual mode usually requires you to pick up every call that comes to the machine. If you hear the signal for a fax, you push the start button and hang up.
Choose the automatic mode if you expect a lot of faxes or have a dedicated fax line. In automatic mode, the printer listens to incoming calls and determines whether they are faxes or voice calls. Voice calls get sent on to your phone, and faxes are picked up by the printer.
Select the number of rings you want your multi-function printer to give you before dropping a call. If you are using the manual mode you may want to go with four or more rings. Two rings should be sufficient in the automatic mode.
Load paper into the paper tray. Check on the paper level frequently if you receive a lot of faxes.
Set the desired print quality, and you are ready to receive faxes.
I have had this problem after printing a large batch of sheets on a heavy matte photo paper. The roller picks up a 'polish' from the surface coating and then fails to grip. I have tried cleaning the roller, with some sucess, but the best solution I have found is to feed through several blank sheets (just page throws in a Word document) of a ordinary 80 gram paper. Doing this between smaller batches of the photo printing seems to keep things flowing.
