ok, you said switched off the printer and the computer Seamus but did not indicate the wireless router has been done in the process I explained.
You also did the wireless router? Its not a step we want to skip.

Yes, the wireless router gets turned off every night along with everything else, so that has all been done

Thanks for confirming.

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.

I did all that myself and tried to print but to no avail, when I press the print button there is a noise from the printer as if it is about to start and then nothing happens and error comes up in the status bar

Ok, restart your computer now we did this and tell me if it then prints please.
