    Have you shut down the computer, turned off power to the printer and started up again?

    Be sure the wire from puter to printer is plugged in.

    Be sure power is on on the printer.

    Kick the cat???? won't help the printer but might make you feel better :thumbs:

    Uninstall the drivers for your printer, then download and install the latest drivers for it.

    Some printers have a clear plastic strip with very small vertical lines on it. (The printer uses this to know where the print head is)If you see it carefully clean it.
    This may not be your problem but won't hurt to clean it.
