Have you installed all the necessery drivers and software which followed with the printer? If not, you can do this via this website: Just pick Drivers/Utilities/Firmware. Try with Utilities at first, if you are sure you have installed the drivers already.

I thought that if I turned on my printer/opened the lid/laid the doc. in and closed it would show on desktop that doc. was ready to print..nothing is happening.

you are using the scanner section and all you have to do is press a button on the printer and it will copy the document
if you want it into the computer you have to click on printer icon and then select the result and where you want to save it to m
select desk top or it will go to documents
then press scan and it will work
