yes the test page works no problem I just tried to print again but got can not print without apps??

Thanks Rob what apps did you used to use?
If none, then the memory circuit has failed.
I would completely remove the printer software from your computer , shut everything dome computer printer and all.
Then re load it all.
see if that works.
Please let me know.
thank you for your patience.

I have a new printer I will use that and see what happens

That sounds good let me know what happens as I suspect an electronic failure in the other printer.
I will stick with you until this is worked out one way or the other but since this may take some time, if you will rate my service in a positive fashion thus far before you close this page, the system will allow me to schedule free follow ups with you and also ensure your question will NOT close or time out;-)
You will then be able to contact me at anytime at no additional cost until we have this fixed for you.

Thank you Robert and have a great day!
