No specific error message
Are you connecting to it via wireless or a USB cable?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
usb cable to a wireless laptop
Plug it into a different USB port on the computer, then try to print to it.
Let me know the results please

No result from change of usb port
Can you go to devices and printers, then right click on the printer and select Remove.
Then disconnect the printer
Then restart the computer
Once restarted, install the printer again and tell me if it now prints.
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.
