My primary computer is a Toshiba laptop, satellite P870-004.

Hi. my primary computer...

Hi. my primary computer is a Toshiba laptop, satellite P870-004. A great computer, I have a Epson WF3620 connected by wi fi to this laptop, also a secondary \HP laptop as Ipad and a IPhone. Al devises printed great until about two weeks ago. My Toshiba goes through the process of printing but only spits out a BLANK page, no printing. Although when I print a test page or a old document with my logo at the top the logos is printed, on the test page the blue printer logo is printed but nothing else. For a while I was getting "printer off line" message but I could print from my other devices. I did call Epson but they say its a printer issue given I have some spaces in the test print after the head cleaning but I have no problem printing from my other devices.

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact model of your Toshiba? And what operating system are you running?

I believe a setting has been changed or lost on my Toshiba ???? Serial # XC044877Q Satellite P870-004, PSPLFC-004003 running Windows 10 Home version 1703, OS Build 15063.674 Product id 00326-10000-00000-AA042

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

Yes it went through an update a week or so ago, but trying to correct the issue of not printing I even reinstalled the printer by way of the CD
