Ah! My printer won't work at all! I have to print up about 40 pages today, I started an hour and a half ago and have been fighting with this stupid printer since!! I've unplugged it and plugged it back in from the wall and computer, tried a different computer, ran the program to detect issues and it says the printer isn't connected. I have things in the que waiting but can not get it to print at all or recognize the connection to the computer I was supposed to be done with this by now cause I have to get the kids up in 30 minutes and won't have time to do anything later!!! (Field trip today and have to pick up the babies after its over run back to school to pick up my oldest then run and pick up my sisters)

Anyone have any idea what the problem may be and how to fix it?!

did you check to make sure the cables were connected and tight?

both computers? so it's networked? are you on the network? is the main network computer on?

Yup they're all in right and I've unplugged and plugged it all back in to make sure as well as to reset.
Desktop and laptop, both of which run from the same wireless.

Im out of ideas for you.

you've gone through the control panel and it says the printer is installed and connected? and you print  atest page through there and it doesn't come out? did you follow the trouble shooting tips through windows?

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the printer on your laptop?
