Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your printer (I presume) question.
Is the printer a TS3122 ?

If neither method works, make sure the printer can work basically in itself, first, by loading paper and doing a one-page photocopy, of an original laid face-down upon the glass sheet of the scanner.

- if that comes out OK, the interface with your computer is the problem.

- if that comes out blank, or refuses to print, the problem is in your printer period. Blank paper means inking system problem(s), refusing to print means something even more severe... and would justify your packing up the printer again, as defective (regrettably) and returning it promptly to the store or vendor as such, for an exchange-for-another-fully-working-printer.

If the interface with the computer is the problem, then be sure that

A. you are installing the drivers for the printer before connecting the printer to the computer... and also, if you have installs/icons/instances listed in System Preferences - Printers that don't work, click on one of those to select it, and remove it with the - button below it, to clear the decks for a proper installation.

B. install the exact right driver for your printer model, and for the exact MAC OS X version you have on your computer.

The utility for properly installing the driver on a networked connection may be obtained by downloading from this site:

http://pdisp01.c-wss.com/gdl/WWUFORedirectTarget.do?id=MDIwMDAwNTI1OTAy&cmp=ABR&lang=EN

Let me know how that goes, what you think, etc.

If you wish I can try remotely connecting to your computer - with your approval only - and see to getting a way worked out through this problem, for a small additional fee.

If you would rather not, then I can also instruct you toward a solution, somewhat more slowly.

Let me know which approach you would prefer, and I will help you as needed.

Thank you but I have decided to return the printer

That is probably most sensible to do. I hope the new(er) printer you will get will prove fully workable and satisfactory. Have a good evening, meanwhile!
