Due to the fact that no error messages appear and the print job reaches the printer, I believe that the formatter board is faulty. If this is the case ( and it is 90% of the time ) the most economical thing to do is purchase another printer.

Wireless printing does not work

For an effective wireless connection, the printer should be connected to one of the LAN ports of a configured wireless router. This way, every pc(mostly laptops with wireless capability) can print to the printer. You will need a wireless adapter for desktop pcs to access any resource made available wirelessly ok. Good luck
