This has been a waste of my time. I suppose you have my $ and personal info. I have nothing in return. I gave you my email address and you didn't accept it because you say it has been used before. Then you won't accept my password. Your site is flawed. Thanks for nothing. My rating for you: 0

You will not be charged anything without the issue resolved. Not to worry about that.

Have you tried resetting the printing system and adding the printer?

Thank you.
