Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
If the printer is new, be sure that you have installed its drivers on your computer first, from the disc that came with it.
Then make sure it is turned On, and indicators on it show that the printer's wireless facility is On. If you have a local WiFi router, make sure that is turned On also.
If the printer's installation instructions say it must be connected by a USB cable at first, try so connecting it. (With some wireless printers, connecting by USB cable is needed so that the wireless setup may configure the printer's wireless parameters properly for wireless printing.)
After which, if it obstinately does not connect, wirelessly, the printer might be defective, and as a new but defective product, should be returned for exchange, to the vendor or store.
