Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Now, when you try to print, what is the response from either computer, or from both computers?

Can you run a photocopy on the printer, using the printer's own controls? if so, with what result?

Thank you - you may ignore the solicitation for additional services (and with them, charges). I did not send that message to you, the website system did. (And I have no control over such messages.)

The printer acts as if about to print, OK: What does it do? make sounds? feed paper? running or whirring noises internally perhaps?
