 Basic Printer Problems
Some printer problems can be easy to resolve. If a problem occurs with your printer, check each of the following:
 The power cable is plugged into the printer and a properly grounded electrical outlet.
l
 The printer's power is on.
l
 The electrical outlet is not turned off at any switch or breaker.
l
 Other electrical equipment plugged into the outlet is working.
l
 All options are properly installed.
l
 The wireless printer adapter is not installed if you use the network protocol adapter with the wired network.
l
If you have checked all of the above and still have a problem, turn off the printer, wait for 10 seconds, and then turn on the printer. This often fixes the
problem.
