Wait 2 minutes

Plug back in the power cord and power it on

It will not print from my laptop, the original problem was from there, then could not get to print from the desktop, which now seems to be fixed.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Not seeing an error message on my laptop for the print job, and still not printing.

It sounds like the printer is not connected to Wi-Fi

On the printer, make sure it is still connected to Wi-Fi

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
It is connected to my desktop by wifi, and that is how I got my test document to print, so I'm pretty sure it is connected. But I'll go make sure.

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Got the software downloaded, and thought i was going to get connected, but it says it could not find the printer when i in put the ip address for getting connected.It says i might not be on the same network.I have my laptop joined to my network as a guest and I had printed from my laptop previously, so not sure wht to do at this point???
Technician: Harry, Engineer replied 8 months ago

No, you should not be putting in the IP address.

You need to run the software and it will walk you through how to connect to the printer via the software using the Wi-Fi option.

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Technician: Harry, Engineer replied 8 months ago

Yes, you can enter it there.

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
which is what i did and it responded with a message that it cannot find the printer, possibly due to being on a different network, then i went on to explain that my laptop is on the "guest" side of my network, but I have printed from this computer before, and so I'm not sure what to do at this point.Here is the message i sent to you:
"30 December 2017 10:51Got the software downloaded, and thought i was going to get connected, but it says it could not find the printer when i in put the ip address for getting connected.It says i might not be on the same network.I have my laptop joined to my network as a guest and I had printed from my laptop previously, so not sure wht to do at this point???" and here is your response "No, you should not be putting in the IP address.You need to run the software and it will walk you through how to connect to the printer via the software using the Wi-Fi option." And now you are saying to put in the ip address, so I am very confused.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
any further suggestions?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
running a few errands, be back in an hour
Technician: Harry, Engineer replied 8 months ago

If your laptop or printer is on the guest network and the other device is on the other network then it won't work

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Can you help me to connect to my main network?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
OK, both computers and printer are on same wireless network. Laptop is still not printing.
Technician: Harry, Engineer replied 8 months ago

Is the printer on the same network as the two computers?
