Question
This printer has a "Green Light" and won't print. It doesn't print a configuration page #Press GO button, wait to it blinks, and press GO again, Nada happens#. Network ports and network cable checked #swapped out# just to make sure. Won't print a test page even though no jobs are in the queue. You do eventually get an "error" on the test page print job which you can cancel & it deletes #under printer software driver control. If I were getting a combination of lights, then I could identify the problem. I know on my old HP LaserJet 1200 that finally died, it had a Green+Yellow Light which was a fatal error. So, it perplexes as to why this printer is not working and doesn't print and has a Green Ready Light. Any ideas for a solution?
