Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
How are you connected from the printer to the computer?
What you want to do is first go into the print driver and open the port properties. And be sure that the port settings are correct.
If you are connected via an ethernet cable. You need to be sure you IP address is correct and did not change on you.
If that happened you want to go into your printer and set up the address again, set it to manual, and re enter the proper IP address. And if there is an IP filter on the printer, make sure the setting is OFF.
Also try new cables, Something may have happened to one of them.
