    Printer No Longer Working


    Using Windows 10, 64 Bit version

    I have an Epson WF-7720 Printer that has a wireless connection to my computer.
    Today, it stopped printing, an error message reads:

    "The Active Directory Domain Services is Currently Unavailable"

    Has this anything to do with the Windows update to Ver. 1909 that was just installed ?

    If so, how do I fix this ?

    Thank you,

    Richard S.

    :)

  2. network printers no longer working for windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community Forum.


    • Have you installed any third party software in compute?
    I suggest you to make printer as a default printer you can follow the below steps:


    • Press Windows key+ X and select
      device manager
      .

    • Select devices and printers

    • Right click on the printer you want to use, and then click
      set as default printer (You'll see a check mark on the printer's icon signifying that it's now your default printer).
    I also recommend you to run the print troubleshooter to check the issue.


    • Type troubleshooter in the search box and then press enter.

    • In the left pane click on View all.

    • Select the printer option and
      follow the on screen instructions.

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the printer drivers and check if it helps

    • Press Windows key+ X and select device manager.

    • Select devices and printers.

    • Right click on printer driver and select uninstall.

    • Now try to install the printer drivers from manufacturing website.

    Hope it helps. Please reply to us with the status of the issue.
