all I have are questions about this printer 2007 , 14 years old!!!!
no PC told
NO OS told(windows, chrome, android, Linux or version
did you ever sees this printer work ever, or this year>?
are you asking why just the printer turned on files
or why the first installed software fails to communicate to the printer.
if just found a printer in a garage sale and **** it home
what would you do.
Id read the manual no 2 are the same of 10,000 printers
so read how to reset the printer first. in its settings. directly
many printers that do 2 ways to connect ,Ethernet or wifi
must be reset to change that mode.
the connect ethernet is best saving wifi horrors.
wire is best or USB if offered.
the load he software from the maker web site
and set that up last.
now it can print, this is a generic answer based on 2 decades of printers made.
the manual shows 5 ways to connect page 25
it says USB is always working,no magic hard settings (us it)
so get that working first then migrate to Ethernet later.
my wild wild guess is this is bought dead printer day?
and you failed to reset it first or the actual printer is dead.
dead dead, call for service tech to fix it.
printers are complex. business grade it is.
wireless is an optional board.
the ethernet inside is a printer server type, and is and optional upgrade, too.
and must be setup carefully. Unlike my Canon G3260, pnP works.
the print server book (ethernet book) is here
116 of complexity here, as no business printer ever knows what YOU have for any network, systems,ever
it must be tediously setup. RTM
to do that set your router , DHCP TO THE PRINTER FOUND MAC AND IP,SET IT TO RESERVED.
