Try updating the print drivers. You can also try doing a repair installation using the printer software or delete the printer and reinstall it using the provided software.

Installing problems


Check your pc for compatability to the unit and its software. Check you have no other old printer settings left on pc (causing conflict) check your pc memory is not causing issues, or your operating system is compatable. Sometimes software and pc's can just be pigheaded and stubborn (i realise they are not human but it sure feels like it sometimes)You need to completely uninstall all traces of the printer drivers before reinstalling. Go to computer, local disk, programs, and see if there is an icon or folder for your program. If so, delete it. Do a search too and type in your printer (make sure disc is not in drive) and delete any settings it finds. Now try reinstalling it again.
