Turn off your printer.Power down your PC. wait 30 seconds.Power up your printer first, then your PC.try again!

connected to the internet!

Thanks,tuned off computor etc,message says,printer not ready to print.

Maybe your print buffer is clogged!
Start/Devices and printers/your printer icon.look in there for a window that shows what you have been trying to print. Highlight each item, click on "document" and "cancel"
Having done that try again!

Like others, I wonder what do you mean by "connected to the internet"!!, enlighten us with a bit more info so we can help

I am trying to print off a confirmation document,from my Hotmail account,hence I am connected to the internet.

k, is your printer on, connected to the computer, recognized and set as default in your printers and scanners!

Did you try printing something else off your pc like a word document, image . etc!, I mean something locally stored and not on the net!

Try stopping & restarting your print spooler service. Start > Run (to get a 'run box). Type in (no quotes) "services.msc". (Enter)

Delete the first one - if that one has an error then it will block the rest.
Check that the default printer is the one you want to print from.
Check the cales are in
Switch on then back on - both pc and printer

Are the drivers still installed! Try updating them.

I can scan,no problem

r.g.nixon, Feb 23, 9:51pm
Scanning uses different software to printing.
