  3. Windows 10 + printer connection

    Hi murlichatlani,

    Have you tried the suggestions on my initial post, in response to the original poster? If you haven't performed any troubleshooting yet, here are a couple of things you can try:

    • Power off, and then power on your printer to restart it. Wait for a while for it to be fully ready.
    • Check your printer connection. Check your printer and make sure that it’s connected to your PC network.

    If the steps didn't help, you may go through this list of suggestions to fix printer connection in Windows 10.

    If you would like me to provide additional advice, simply respond to this thread. I will get notified and I’ll reply to you as soon as I can.
