To answer your question -

Most printers require that you install the latest printer driver so that the printer will work well. If you recently upgraded from an earlier version of Windows or Mac, your printer driver might work with the previous version but might not work well or at all. Also, if you've experienced power outages, computer viruses, or other problems, your printer driver might be damaged. Downloading and installing the latest printer driver can often resolve these problems. Here are several ways to do this.

  • If your printer came with a disc, it might contain software that can help you install drivers for your printer or check for driver updates.
  • Check your printer manufacturer’s support site. To find that, search the internet for the name of your printer manufacturer plus the word “support”, to find the latest drives.
  • Printer drivers can be found here: https://www.drivers.com/update_printer_drivers_main/
  • Replace the cable connected to the device
  • If its connected through wireless reboot your Wi-Fi modem and test again.

I hope that one of these tips or fixes was able to help you with the issue you are experiencing. If you still can't get the printer setup correctly a technician service request must be made.
