Thank you. I think the printer is connected now, but there is a problem which it was displaying with the old Mac. I have just tried to print something. It won't print and it says the printer is off-line. But it must be on-line in some respect because if I ask it to scan, it does this perfectly. How do I get it to print?

I would be able to assist you quickly over a remote assistance session. Please let me know if you are okay with that.

Please ensure all the 3 devices your Old mac, New mac and printer are on same network.

Add the printer on both the computers using the steps mentioned in the below video.
