You didn't mention whether the error was given by the printer or by the PC but I'll give you a couple of tips for troubleshooting this...

Switch the cable to another port on the PC to see if the OS identifies it (if you're using Windows you'll get an audio sound when it gets plugged in). Try to print to it from the new port.

Worst case scenario follow this link to download and re-install your print drivers.

Why does my 7520 printer print old documents.


Your computer has "queued" various pages to be printed.
When it detects that it cannot completely complete the output, it restarts the sending of the information to the printer.

From the Windows "Control Panel", select "Printers".
Select your printer. Click to "show what is printing".
From there, you can select an item, and choose to "cancel" it.

Printer does not print computer documents


The queue is so choked with documents the printer gets confused and loses its sense of priority. Shut down the printer and disconnect power to clear its memory. Wait a few minutes and reconnect power. Start sending one document at a time to the printer and you should get results.

Go to "Printers and Faxes" or "Devices and Printers" and try printing a test page by right clicking on the icon and choosing printer properties. This will better define if the problem is something wrong with the printer or connection OR if it is a software issue.

Yellow light flashes but won't print. Paper tray is full.


Hello,

If you had sent the document for print, try cancelling it and switch off the printer, unplug the USB cable to the printer and plug it again. Put on the printer and send the document for printing again. Make sure that no other document is pending for printing and send for print again.

Sounds like your secratery's printer is set to ignore paper mismatch errors. It depends on the setting you have in your driver. Can you set your driver on your printer to ignore paper mismatch errors. If not when your printer errors, just try hitting the go button and it should print the document any way.

Printer not printing


Go to the printer properties and make sure there is not a previous print job. Cancel all print jobs. Then send a test print to the printer.

When printing documents from my PC documents always sent to queue


Go to control panel, printers. Set your defaults there. You probably have spooling enabled. Uncheck it and your print job will go to the printer, rather than to spooling. Spooling is like rolling the print job up on a spool until the whole thing is processed, then unwinding it to the printer.
