Can u walk me through. I see the printer is on. Sometimes it says print job stuck in Q and sometimes it says not commuting with printer. I was trying to print out a scanner code twice. One came out on photo paper and the Q is empty.
Technician: Lorenz Vauck, Computer Expert replied 6 months ago

Hello,

thanks for your reply, I would be happy to help if you can wait until in about 10 hours from now because I am not working right now (sent the reply to you when I was still on duty 8 hours ago). However, your request for remote help is opened to all experts, so it could well be the case that someone accepts it earlier to help you directly on your computer. Does this all work for you?

Thank you,

Lorenz

I am not home right now but will be back soon. Will the entire cost me $39? Even if you go in right now?
Technician: Donna French, Programmer replied 6 months ago

Let me look into the cost for you. And let's wait until you are at home in case I need you to restart a device for me.
