Network printer won't print no error messages

by zanada / December 27, 2011 8:52 AM PST

When a user tries to print a document, the usual little printer rectangular window pops up but then nothing after that. no error messages. I am able to get at the configuration page of the printer Via entering the IP address in the browser's address bar.
Here I entered default dns. Didn't work.
Any ideas.

Did it ever work?

If so, what has changed since it last worked?

You mention 'a user' so is this a workplace setup? If so, see what the IT Department techs say.

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
