My name is David.

Since it sounds like you powered the printer off and on, do the same with the computer (power off and then back on) and unplug the cable and plug back in again and then try again to print.

If that does not resolve the issue then open the printer and check for paper that may be stuck in the printer. Remove any paper that has not been properly fed through the printer and then close the printer, power the printer down and back up, and then test to see if the printer starts working.

Please let me know if the above procedures resolve the issue.
