    If you still can't print, check to make sure the printer is not set to offline mode. Go to Start, Printers and Faxes. Find the printer you want to use and make sure it says Ready underneath it. If it says Offline, right-click on it and select Use Printer Online

    Its illegal to use a printer unless you owe a LPL (Light Printer License) or HPL (Heavy Printer License) prior to use any printer.

    Is it plugged in? Make sure the power is on and it lights up.

    Does it appear in the list of printers in your computer? Select that particular printer from the list when you click on Print from the program.

    Are the ink levels sufficient? Most printers have a program that warns you about this if ink is low. If it is, replace ink cartridges at once.

    Some other problem? Try reading the Troubleshooting section in the manual. If you don't have a manual, you can get one from the printer's brand's official website. If you can't follow the manual, the website should also offer a hotline.
