Hello! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed printer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Are you still able to make a copy on the printer (not print from the computer)?

Is the printer connected to the computer with a USB cable? Or is it wireless?

Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7, or 8, or mac computer?

Can we do a remote support session, so we can chat, and I will be able to help you directly?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you

Was the printer working previously fine on this chromebook?

Is another device, such as a windows or mac computer or iPad, etc., if you have, working with the printer?

What's the status of the Wi-Fi/wireless light / button on the printer?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

Can you please go to the option WLAN Setup on the printer device (press the red Stop/Reset button when prompted to press the WPS button), and connect to your Wi-Fi / wireless network name and check?

(Note: make sure both the printer and the Chromebook are connected to the same exact wireless network name.)

Please let me know. Thank you.
