If this is a new printer, is software for the printer installed?

It is not uncommon for PC software to become unstable or corrupt. However before we go there lets check your printer settings.
Click the start button, than click the printer & faxes icon.
The Printer & Faxes window will open. Find the printer's name, the name of the printer connected to your PC. That printer should be listed in this window. If there is not a little black & white check mark next to the printer (left side) than this needs to be set as the default printer before you can print.
To do this high-light the printer name (if still not high-lighted).
Click, File in the upper left corner, it will open & click, Set as Default Printer. To test the printer, click File again & slide down to Porperties & left click it once. A window will open with the name of the printer listed at the top. At the bottom of the window is a button that says { Print Test Page }, left click it once.
After a few seconds a test page should come out of the printer.
If you did not receive the test page from the printer than go through the list & verify all.
1. Is the printer software installed in the PC?
2. Is the printer's power cable plugged into a wall jack?
3. Is the printer's data cable or usb plugged in to the computer?
4. Is the printer turned on?
5. Is paper loaded?
6. Is the printer set as the default printer?
If everything checks out & PC still can not get printer to print than un-install printer software & re-install software.

Good Luck & Kind Regards.
& please vote.

Power went off when I tried to print


Would be helpful to know which operating system you are using and whether there where any warning light flashing. For starters review the following solutions.
Printer Does Not Start or Stops During Print Jobs

Inner Cover was open when you started printing.

Close the Inner Cover and press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer. The printer resumes printing.

Inner Cover was opened while printing is in progress.

Close the Inner Cover and press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer.

A page of print data being sent at the time of the error will be erased, so print that page again.

The printer has been printing continuously over a long period.

If the printer has been printing continuously for a long time, the Print Head may overheat. To protect the Print Head, the printer may stop printing at a line break for a period of time and then resume printing.

In this case, interrupt your print session at a convenient time and turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes.

Additionally, if the printer has been printing graphics or photos with intense colors continuously over a period of time, the printer may stop printing to protect the Print Head. In this case, printing will not resume automatically. Turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes.

i_expl.gif Caution

The Print Head and the surrounding area can become extremely hot inside the printer. Never touch the Print Head or nearby components.

Out of paper.

Make sure that paper is loaded in the selected paper source.

Reload paper if no paper is found in the selected paper source (Auto Sheet Feeder or the Cassette).

If the same paper is loaded in the other paper source, you can switch the paper source with the Paper Feed Switch or the printer driver to continue printing.

If both paper sources have run out of paper, confirm the selected paper source and load paper there.

Printing documents with plenty of photographs or illustrations.

When the POWER lamp is flashing green, the printer or the computer is processing data. Printing large data such as photos or graphics takes time for the printer and the computer to process, during which the printer may appear to have stopped operating.

In addition, when printing data that uses a large amount of ink continuously on plain paper, the printer may pause temporarily. In either case, wait until the process is complete.

i_note.gif Note

If you are printing a document with a large printing area or printing multiple copies of a document, printing may pause to allow the ink to dry.

restart the Windows printing services, if they run Win2000 or newer. Go to Start > Run, type CMD, hit Enter, in the command dialog that opens, type NET STOP SPOOLER and hit Enter and it should tell you the service has stopped.
then type NET START SPOOLER and hit Enter and the service should start again.
Do this on all computers until printing stops. If printing doesn't stop, power off the printer and its server (unless it's connected to one of those pcs in which case you already restarted that service).

Printing from the internet or e-mail


TO isolate the problem you can do a print preview and see if if looks good before printing.

If it does look correct before printing try

1) Sounds like there was a communication problem between the printer and computer.(IF the printout is garbles characters)

Typically you need to

a) Delete any existing print jobs.
b) Turn off printer.
c) Verify all cable connections to printer.
d) Power on printer

Try printing again...

or

If print previw showed "Code"

If the print out is "HTML Code" make sure you are not selecting "view source" and printing it...
