To clarify, everything sounds like its all working, but nothing appears on the paper? And does the paper go quickly through the printer? Or about the same speed as it normal does?
Thank you

Thanks Richard
As the first step, remove the power from the printer, your wireless router and turn the computer off.
Then power on the wireless router and wait 5 minutes.
Then connect the power to the printer and wait 5 minutes
Turn on the computer then try to print.
Let me know the results please

It was the firmware that had an issue, and needed a hard restart. We did this just then. It will now be ok.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
