This could be several things. But most are firmware related
Unplug it from the network and power it off, then on. Does it come to ready? If it does there's a bad print job on someone's computer. Or less likely the network port is bad. Clear out all print jobs on the network then submit a new print job. If it prints, great, if it codes again, clear it and try from a different computer.
if you're printing from a Mac can probably get away with updating firmware or changing the PPD for the printer.
if its windows printing I would replace the formatter board. If you have one lying around you could try plugging in a jet direct card and seeing what it does, but I wouldn't order a jetdirect card, I'd replace the formatter.
Try to check your printer cable if it is working or in the printer settings try to see if the exact port was chosen. If your problem still exist you can start a fresh install of your printer, uninstall first the previous printer then install your printer again.
Check the way your print Jobs Spool up in your PC. you may have a totally different set up for printing in your new computer that takes two or three extra steps(such as spooling the print job) prior to actually sending it to the printer to be printed. If you have a user manual for your new computer, check the printer set up and see if it is set up to print directly to printer or print to spooling folder then to printer. Also try a different driver if you wish, I know the 2430 can use either PCL5 or PCL6 drivers... I'd start there and see if there is a difference.... the problem isn't your printer obviously its the way your computer is communicating to it. Best of luck to you.
On the two non working computers...uninstall the printer drivers and uninstall any info about the printer reboot.reset up each indivual (the two non working ones)computer with new drivers from web.reboot and they should work.RICHARDM69
Ok, so you have tried a reset and no good. Try this again but this time unplug it too, all cords and cables. Replug, turn it on. Wait. Once reset again, check to see no print jobs queued and if so, cancel all print jobs by clicking on start, control panel, printers, icon of printer, scrol to properties, cancel print jobs. Try reprinting now.
