No it says check Connection

That means your Mac somehow lost the connection to printer. How was it connected? WiFi, Ethernet or Wired ?

Ask Your Own Printers Question

If it was on WiFi network, then reconnect it to WiFi network.

  1. Press Menu.
  2. Press Up or Down arrow key to choose the Network and press OK.
  3. Press Up or Down arrow key to choose the WLAN and press OK. (This step might be skipped in some models.)
  4. Press Up or Down arrow key to choose the Setup Wizard and press OK.
  5. Choose your network name and follow the onscreen instructions to reconnect to your WiFi network.

Once it is connected to the WiFi, do the following on your Mac.

Go to Apple > System Preferences > Printers and Scanners. Select your printer name there and delete it by pressing the - button. Then click the plus button there and add the printer back.

Does it work now ?

I did all that and it seems to be printing from my computer OK but it still has the check "connection sign - deep sleep" showing. it is also printing from my iPhone. So I am happy! Thanks again fingers crossed!

Even when it is in deep sleep, it is supposed to be wake up from sleep and do the print. But sometimes, when it is in deep sleep it may not react to the incoming print request. That is why I suggested to remove the sleep option.

I'm glad it is working now.

The printer after an initial few minutes became unconnected again I have gone through your instructions a few times with the same result. I wonder if the printers"brain" has a short circuit!!

It is possible that it is an hardware issue. Is there any way you can connect the printer to your router via Ethernet cable?
