try disconnecting data line and printer cable. leave off for about twenty minutes. then reconnect cables and power up, if that doesnt work, i would try deleting the printer from the system and re-installing. many power lines and phone cables are experiencing cross overs or connect failures in nyc area good luck
Hi there pricilla:
The previous post is right on target. I've found that that problem exists in most printers of any brand. I don't think that you need to sit there for 20 minutes or so though. I think that might be a litttle overkill. I have found that most of the time when you unplug the AC & the data line(USB), all you need is 2 - 3 minutes. Maybe not even that. Now then, that being said, brace yourself for this to be an on-going frustration. Sooner or later, that printer is going to simply stop working.
Not sure if it still holds true with ISP and the MODEMs - but that's pretty much the same remedy for no internet.
Good luck to you with this.
