I'm sorry about the issue. Was it printing fine previously?

Are you currently able to make a copy from the printer's glass (not printing from the computer)?

Is the printer currently working fine on the other computer?

Is the printer connected to the computer with a USB cable? Or is the connection wireless?

Can we do a remote support session, so I can troubleshoot the issue directly on your computer together with you?
Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

It was printing fine from the glass and also the other computer and it is connected wireless. I prefer not to do the remote support session,thanks.

With remote support, you can see everything I do on the screen, and we have an A+ service rating at the Better Business Bureau website:

Remote support is quicker and easier for you as I will do all the troubleshooting steps for you, and this issue can be complicated. Otherwise, I will provide written instructions. Please provide me some more information, so I can troubleshoot the issue.

- To confirm, both computers are not able to print right now. Is that correct?

- Is there any other cord, except the power cord, currently connected to the printer?

- Was there any change recently to your internet service / internet modem / router device that may have caused this issue?

- Can you put a document or photo faced down on the printer's glass, then press the Copy button / option on the printer, then does it copy fine?

Please let me know your option; we guarantee our service. Please reply at the box below. Thank you,
