Thank you for your information but why does the laptop say that the printer is off-line?
Also why does the printer copy quite satisfactorily with no indication of low ink but not print at all from the laptop? i.e. it does not run paper through or try to print in any way.
Lamp C seems to be ON all the time. How do I know if it needs black or colour ink?
I have already selected the MP150 as the on line printer and double checked this.
I have also cleared the print queue and tried a test print and retried the doc printing.
The printer window on the laptop still says that the printer is 'OFF-LINE' but I can see that it is physically connected and switched ON. Is there a print control function on the printer i.e. something to tell it to read the laptop data via the UPS cable....
I have reloaded the printer software but the screen warns me that the printer port has not been detected. I removed the existing cable and have tried a new cable but the result is the same.
The problem seems to be that the laptop is not seeing the printer and vice versa. Could it be a problem with the USB port? Is there a any way to check this?
My other computer is the old desktop which works with the printer fine.
