Sorry that the issue persists. Could you please let me know what type of documents you are trying to print (I.E PDF, Image, Word, Excel) and how the printer is connected? (WiFi, USB, Network Cable)?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

PDF - Word - Network cable

Expert:  A. Stevens replied 3 years ago.
Can you try attaching the printer directly to one of the computers via USB cable to see if the issue persists?
