Printer Troubleshooting:

Before contacting the Technology Help Desk regarding printer issues, users should restart the printer and try to print again. This is done by switching the printer off, waiting 20 seconds, and then turning it back on again.

Users should also make sure that the printer's network cable is securely plugged into the printer and the wall.

If this does not work, please contact the Technology Help Desk
