Hi,

  1. Click start --> Control panel --> Printer and faxes
  2. Right click on printer 'C4200 series' and select 'Set as default printer'.
  3. Right click again on the same printer icon and select 'Use printer Online'.
  4. Try Printing.
  5. You can delete the icon that says 'C4200 series(copy1)' if you are not using it.
Regards
Riztech
