check all this possible problems and solutions:
-Check the printer status lights, or the status
LCD screen. If there's a flashing light, or if the status screen shows
an error, then it's your first clue to a problem. Most printer manuals
have a diagnosis process for alerts.
-common problems are related to toner or toner
cartridges. If the problem is toner-related, check to see if the toner
cartridge is empty or low. The printer warning should indicate this.
Swap it for a new one and the unit should work.
-check to be sure that it is connected to your
computer. Personal printers connect via either a parallel or USB
(universal serial bus) connector to the back of the printer. Follow the
cable from the back of the printer to the back of the computer to make
sure the connection is good.
-When a printer acts up and there is no hardware
problem, the solution is often driver-related. A printer driver is a
piece of software that allows a computer to "talk" to a printer. It's a
kind of translator. Occasionally, if a printer has worked previously,
but suddenly doesn’t work with a newly installed program, there could
be driver problems. To remedy this, download a driver from the printer
maker's website, remove the old driver, and install the new driver.
Drivers are normally available under the "support" area of a website.
