printer wont print from feeder or glass but will from computer. Help


My new printer won't let me print when I use the feeder or glass. It works fine when I print from my computer. So I've been scanning paperwork to my computer and then printing! What a pain.

Also...when I scan I have to scan in color or anything that has a signature on it doesn't pick up. Did I get a dud printer or what? Any suggestions?
