What Should You Do If Your Printer Fails?

Step 1: Make Sure You’ve Covered All of Your plug

First Double-check that your printer is plugged in and turned on, and that your computer (or whatever device you’re trying to print from) is connected to it properly. Although it may look simple, simple things are usually ignored.

Step 2: Check the paper

Check the printer’s paper tray to make sure it’s not empty, and the printer feed to make sure there are no any paper jams.

Step 3: Check the Ink or Toner Cartridges

When your printer’s ink or toner levels are low, it will most likely send a notification to your computer. You can also check the ink and toner levels on the printer itself.

Step 4: Double-check that your printer drivers are up to date.

Try updating your printer drivers if none of the above issues are keeping your printer from printing. It’s possible that an out-of-date driver is preventing you from printing.

Step 5: Run the Printer Troubleshooter on your computer.

If you’re using Windows 10, use these steps to get to the printer troubleshooter:
