Waited five hours still no resolution to my problem. Went back online in the evening and no message. Paid £16.00 and I still cant print
Expert:  carlday1 replied 2 years ago.
Hi,
Sorry had power cut last night and lost internet.
The first thing I would try is to unplug the printer and put it into a different usb port. This will cause the printer to reinstall the driver on a different port.
Let me know if you have tried this or what the outcome is when you do.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I have tried as you requested and it has just added another print in the queue and states there are 6 items waiting to be printed and printer status is still at error
