CIS Help: Painful Printer Issues
It's 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday, the night before your term paper is due, and your printer is not communicating with your computer. Ah! What should you do?? Don't stress. Try the following: 1.) Is it plugged in? Make sure all cables are popularly plugged in and all devices powered on. 2.) Power cycle your printer and computer. Rebooting your computer and turning your printer on and off could clear up issues. 3.) Read the printer manual for more information. Usually printer manuals have helpful information on how to solve common printer problems. 4.) Search the manufacturer's website. Your problem most likely happened before and a solution should be on the manufacturer's website. 5.) If you still have trouble, sign up for a free Help@Home visit by going to http://www.spu.edu/help-at-home or calling (206)-281-2982.
