My printer won`t print

Check there is paper in the tray (and it`s the right type of paper). Turn the printer off, wait 20 seconds and turn it back on again. Both USB and Wi-Fi connected printers require the correct and current printer driver is installed on the computer you`re printing from.

This means that the printer is not properly connected to the network or computer. It may happen due to a faulty cable or a loose connection. Outdated Drivers: Another common reason for Xerox printers showing offline is outdated drivers.
The vast majority of the time, when the “held for resources” message comes up, it means that your printer needs something so that it can continue to do the job that you`ve assigned to it. Almost always, the “resource” that the printer needs is paper.
Laser Phaser Printers

They generate static electricity which draws toner onto the page, creating highly detailed text and images. Every single pixel gets the same amount of light, providing a crisp finish.

If your wireless printer isn`t printing, be sure to check your settings. Make sure your Wi-Fi is enabled, and then check to be sure you`re connected to the correct Wi-Fi network. You can often check your connectivity by printing a network configuration sheet by selecting this option from the printer`s display menu.
You may see a “printer offline” error if your computer can`t communicate with your printer. This can be caused by loose cable connections or an outdated printer driver or operating system.
Print sources include books, newspapers, magazines, journals, and any other hard-copy sources such as official records. Print sources generally include all tangible sources such as video or audio tapes. Print sources are still valuable for research.
For an image to print properly, its resolution must be at least 300 dots per inch (DPI) at the final output size. Files with resolutions higher than 300dpi are ok to send for print, but not necessary, and the higher resolution will not improve the printed quality of your project.
Printer status spooling essentially means another document is printing, and yours is waiting for its place in the queue. The reason for this is that printers don`t have anywhere near as much memory as computers, and need an intermediary program to conduct and wave the print jobs to home plate.
The Print Spooler is software built into the Windows operating system that temporarily stores print jobs in the computer`s memory until the printer is ready to print them. In some circumstances you may need to stop and/or restart the service. To access the Print Spooler you must open the Local Services console.
Connect the B end of a standard A/B USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 cable to the USB Port on the back of the printer. Connect the A end of the USB cable to the USB port on the computer. If the Windows Found New Hardware Wizard appears, click cancel. Install the print driver.
Simply plug the USB cable from your printer into an available USB port on your PC, and turn the printer on. On the taskbar, select the Search icon, type Printers in the search bar, and then select Printers & scanners from the search results to open the Printers & scanners system setting.
Windows & Linux: Ctrl + p. Mac: ⌘ + p.

Print file sent but no printing occurs
ANSWER : Been working on these since they first were released. Never seen a problem like yours. If it happens again, try doing an engine test, as it bypasses the formatter board. The engine test is located at the right side of the manual tray opening. Look for a hole in the side wall. Stick something like a paper clip into it to actuate the test button. It will then print a lined test page. If it does that, then it points to the formatter board as the cause of your problem.
