Thank you for the additional details :thumbsup:

Am I correct that the printer is wi-fi capable and if so was it previously set up to print by way of a wireless connection/network.

One suggestion that I would make is to again uninstall both the printer and all of the software associated with it, disconnect the USB cable and with the exception of the power cord any other cables that you may have attached, reinstall the software from the disk that was provided with the printer and only connect the printers USB cord to the computer when you receive an on screen message asking you to do so, finally check that the printer is selected as the default printer in Control Panel Printers and other hardware.

Let us know the outcome please
