    Printer not printing after installation


    Hello, i have windows 10 64bit pro 1903 installed on my computer...i have an HP LaserJet Pro MFP M127fn printer and downloaded the driver+software for windows 10 64bit and installed on my computer. After installation the printer shows under "printers and scanners" but doesnt print the test page or any other document and the printer shows "idle". I have this pc connected to a network of computers and also connected to other printers on the network and can print on them from my default computer...
    Can anyone help me why i cant print on my installed printer?

    :)

    Windows 10 Home Won't Print to Remote Printer


    I have three computers.
    Machine 1: Windows 10 pro, has the USB Brother HL-5040 printer
    Machine 2: Windows 10 pro, prints OK to the remote printer.
    Machine 3: Windows 10 home, Used to print, but not anymore (THIS IS THE PROBLEM).
    I’ve tried everything that I can think of, and would appreciate any suggestions.
    I did these steps on Machine 3 that did not work.

    1. Remove the printer device.
    2. Add a Printer
    3. The printer that I want isn’t listed
    4. Select a shared printer by name
    5. Browse
    6. Select the displayed Machine 1.
    7. Select the displayed Printer.
    8. Next
    9. Failure “Connect to Printer”.
    10. Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or Hostname
    11. Next
    12. Set Hostname to Machine 2, and set port name.
    13. Detecting TCP/IP Port
    14. Additional Port information required.
    15. Device Type – Standard, Brother Port Server
    16. Next
    17. Detecting the Driver Model
    18. Install The Print Driver
    19. Select Brother and Brother HL-5040
    20. Next
    21. Replace the Current Driver
    22. Printer Name (setting it to HL-5040)
    23. Next
    24. Do not share this printer
    25. Next
    26. You’ve successfully added “HL-5040”
    27. Finish
    Printing on Machine 3 puts the document in the print queue, which reports error printing.
    Printing from Machine 2 to the printer on Machine 1 works perfectly.
    All three machines are in the same HomeGroup. Machine 3 can access the shared files from Machine 1.

    Printer not always printing!

    Hi,

    Thank you for reply.

    I apologize for the inconvenience that you are experiencing.

    I suggest you to un-install and re-install printer drivers and check if it helps.



    Follow these steps to un-install and re-install the drivers:


    • On the search bar type
      “ Device Manager”.


    • On the left pane locate
      “Print queues”
      and expand by clicking on it.

    • Right on the “printer driver” option and click
      “Uninstall’.

    • Restart you PC, once you restart your PC it will automatically install the drivers.



    Hope the information helps, if you have any further queries, feel free to post. We are here to assist you.
