If you are connected via the USB cable, the connection may be lost (or the setup which is particular to the actual USB plug itself). Try deleting the printer and reinstalling it. Don't change USB ports after the printer is installed by the way. Also we had problems with this when the printer was networked (shared) and the auto sense was on - after another person printed the local box would seize up. Try not having the printer auto sense its presence so that 2 printers show up in the network neighbourhood. Of course check that the cables are installed right and try changing USB ports.

Help with printer!


Does it ask you to print a test page or anything when you installed it?If it does, you needed to do that before you try to print anything else.
Id uninstall it then reinstall and see if that helps. Remove all plugs connecting it to pc and put them back in-that may also solve things.

Is there a resume button on the printer? If so press this, often printers will allow you to bypass a low ink message and print for a while longer.
