Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your printer question.
The blue light on the printer lights up when the WiFi or Wireless connection is enabled:
so if the printer is supposed to be printing from USB, it is in WiFi or Wireless printing mode, and it cannot. oddly enough, be in both - that is, if both connected by wireless and also connected by USB, the USB connection will not necessarily work.
Is that the problem? And when you checked that it is connected, do you mean that it physically has a USB cable between it and the computer? or that it is indeed connected by wireless?
This can be straightened out fairly easily, I hope, but I will need some more data about the situation, before I can tell you exactly what needs to be done. E.g. the questions mentioned above, and also the type of computer you are printing to it from (Windows PC, or Apple computer) - let me know, in Reply, and I will instruct and guide you further to a solution.
OK, good so far. Tell me: is it *supposed* to be printing with USB connection? or with WiFi connection?
And, have you checked the queue for the printer? (If you need instructions, just let me know.)
Before I tell you, please indicate: Is it supposed to be printing by a USB connection?
If so, you can go into the printer's own settings, via its own control panel and buttons/controls, and turn Off WiFi there. I will instruct you if that is needed...
Try this, to reset WLAN and wifi settings:
RESET LAN Settings
YES RESET SETTING? and press OK.
A bit later, after the screen shows 'Processing... please wait momentarily', you may press OK again.
See whether that gets it working! I hope so. Let me know, if you would, once you've tried this.
Thank you - you may ignore the solicitation for additional services (and with them, charges). I did not send that message to you, the website system did. (And I have no control over such messages.)
(I regret that I am not able to offer Live Phone Call service at this time; However, your request is still open to other Experts in this category, and one of them may pick up on it at any time.)
Meanwhile, you might try this, on the printer itself, using its own controls/buttons, to reset wifi settings:
