    Use the printer control panel to check the printer, and possibly print a test sheet. Make sure that the paper is loaded properly. Can you make a copy on your printer, without connecting to your computer. Would be an indication that the hardware is OK

    try the windows print test. if that works as it should, the problem is in the program you are trying to print from. it if doesn't, look for a problem such as ran out of ink, ink jet clogged, etc.

    With no clues on maker or model number of anything (printer, what is sending whatever to it), how to guess?  With no details, wasted question.
