MAXIFY MB2720 Trouble installing on computer


I purchased a Maxify MB2720 to replace my old Maxify MB2720, and I cannot get the new one installed on my computer. Each time I try to print, I get a message that says, "printer error". It does not give me any kind of code either.

Did you replace the printer with an identical model?  How is the new printer connected, and to what?

Did you uninstall the old printer and restart before installing and connecting the replacement device?
