imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4050 Series won't actually print

Hi there. I've got an issue with setting up a Canon ImageRunner 4050 printer and having it print.  I downloaded the driver install files from the Canon website.
I can get the drivers installed and it seems to start printing through the Windows queue but it just pops up in the queue, seems to go through, and disappears. I have had someone try to print something and the printer sounds like it's starting up but nothing comes out.
Any thoughts on how to fix this?

While I do appreciate the response and guidance towards support through your dealer network, I find it immensely disappointing that something as simple as printer driver installation and configuration requires escalation to a technician. For simple document printing (which is all that the user requires) I would expect that the process would be as simple as any existing printers currently in market.

Initiating a print job, seeing it go through the spooler, and then hearing the machine warm up as the print job hits it and ultimately no print coming out is frustrating, to say the least.
