When I want to print something out, my printer is like screw you ain't gonna happen. But when my husband prints things out, it works for him. WTH? I just want to print out my story so I can start editing but NOOOO! The printer has to be a pain in my arse!
That's elf murphy at work... cheer up... point a certain hand digit at the cursed thing, shake it while you shout at it guaranteed it will work (sooner or later) but don't kick it though---broken toes and all that good stuff.
since you unplugged it, then plugged it back in, that means your cable is properly connected to your USB port.
sometimes shutting down your computer and rebooting works.
have you checked your printer assignments to make sure it is finding your printer? it will say it is offline sometimes because it can't recognize a printer. or check the printer settings and make sure 'Use Printer Offline' is not checked. other than that, i have no idea. maybe your husband is "The Printer Whisperer"
lmao I wouldn't be surprised. I've unplugged it and plugged it in and it's still not working for me. I am so sick of technology it isn't even funny. I tried sending it via email so I can try it on the desktop and the stupid desktop is acting up too. So yea I'm done!
Is your printer selected as the default printer - in Control Panel - select Printers - see if it has a check mark? or I could pray for it Crazd - that has been working for some of my other friends problems lately! I just send healing energy. Ok here comes some.
