Hi there and welcome

And are you using a windows or Mac computer?

Is it connected via a wireless connection or the USB cable?

ThanksOn the back of the hub is a reset button.Can you hold the reset button in for 10 seconds, then release.Then wait 5 minutes, restart the printer and computer again and tell me if you can now print to it please.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

no

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Which version of windows are you using?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

10 (I've just put a USB connection in but that doesnt seem to make any difference so far)

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Thanks, ***** ***** USB please
Can you type in the search at the bottom left Device and click on Device and printers.
Right click on your printer and click remove.
Once done, restart the computer
Then go back to Devices and Printers, and click on add Printer.
Let it find the printer and if it does, click on it and install the print and try to print to it.
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
Let me know the results please
