Printer is barely two weeks old. I have used it three times since I bought it. One day it works and the next day it says printer could print the page then it says no pages were selected. I have checked everything I could think of and have been searching online to see if anyone else has had this problem. I'm not sure if it's a setting that is off or what but, like I said before I used it one day then I go to use it the following day and I get those messages. It's like the printer is acting like it's not connected to my computer but, it is. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Get new ink cartridges. If they sit that long without being used the ink will dry out in the print head part of the cartridge and clog the very small holes. The clogs are inside the cartridge so wiping the outside will not clear the blockage. In the future if you have to leave the unit without it being used for over about a week you should remove the ink carts and put them in a sealed zip lock bag to prevent them from drying out.
You had left the printer many times, which indicates that the printer heads are jammed due to non use. So go to the printer property in control panel - printer and faxes - your printer. In printer property go to maintenance. There is the option of head cleaning. Run the head cleaning programme twice or thrice. You will see, your old cartridges also can work.
I've had the Canon i9100 since 2003 and have excellent photo printing results. In 2009 it started playing up and I'd gt some banding. More recently, black didn't want to print. It was as though the black ink in the print head got dry some days.
April 2010 - The colours started printing strange and I bought a brand new print head and installed it. Only takes a minute. Still had an issue with photo printing. Black and white was excellent but colours weren't true.
Found advice online to try cleaning the print head to print head carrier electrical contacts by rubbing them with a rubber eraser.
I did that and now I'm getting perfect colour photo prints again.
I had been thinking about buying a new A3+ printer but this is old printer is now working as good as new.
This is a fairly common problem, caused by a faulty black developer roller. I spoke to Samsung about mine, when it was 1 day out of the warranty and explained it started happening three weeks before (which was true). It had about 1,300 page count, when fuser kit should last 20,000. An engineer visited next day and replaced the roller, as well as a cautionary replacement of the paper pick-up rubber. Print is back working fine now. Chatting to engineer, the rollers have been modified now, so the fault must be causing concern. He said he's got another ten coming in stock tomorrow. Keep the previous toners, as they will still work once printer is fixed. I must say, Samsung support is excellent (the reason I bought from them!), so speak to them and so what they will do.
I found a solution to the Black printing problem :)
Under Printing Preferences: Set your Media Type to Photo Paper Pro.
We used edible ink cartridges and printed onto icing sugar paper. Same old... Just one day it refused to print black. In order to continue our small business, I degraded the color until I printed gray and not black.
Tonight, I browsed for the problem and came across this :)
It's NOT a cartridge if this works... I had a similar problem with a 9600 I bought on eBay that had been inoperable over 18 months. Three colors would NOT clear up after multiple power cleanings. Epson support politely solved the issue at no charge on the phone... he had me drop a few drops of warm water on the pad the printhead rests on when not printing. You have to move the printhead to the left to do that by moving up the little lever near the cutter. The pad is easier to reach with a long eye dropper. I used very warm water- not boiling. I replaced the printhead over the warm water pad for an hour. Then I repeated the process and let it be for another 60 minutes. Then I did a nozzle check and what was gummed up yellow, cyan, and magenta nozzles became clear and it's worked fine since. Good luck!
