  3. unable to print

    Hello,

    Outdated drivers is one of the possible reasons why you cannot print documents. To better assist you, we need the answers to the following questions:

    • How is your printer connected to your computer, is it wired or
      wireless?
    • Did you make changes on your computer prior to this issue?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    In the meantime, we suggest performing the methods in this
    article
    . Once on the page, you either select Troubleshooting
    or Advanced on the drop-down menu to help you fix printer issues.

    We are looking forward to your response.

    For some reason I am unable to print anything from my computer

    Win10 computer suddenly unable to access printer on home wifi


    For some reason, the printer lasted less than 24 hours printing correctly, and now I again can't fix it, even by doing what "worked" before (Comment #6 upthread).

    Regarding the static IP suggestion:
    1. The printer is connected via USB to a Windows 7 computer on the home network. It's not on the network by IP address. Here is a screenshot of the printer port properties.

    2. Although there ARE "headaches" as is said above, the vast majority of the other computers on the home wifi network, NEVER have had a problem printing to it. And this applies to computers that have run XP, Win7, Win10, and MacOS. For the most part until now, it's included the particular Win10 computer in question.
    3. If I still might be able to give it a static IP address, will this affect the other computers that have been able to print to it fine using printer name?
