My Kyocera Printer Ecosys FS 1135MFP won't work. It's set to LPT1 as the port and no matter how many ways I try it it won't work. Someone help me, please respond ASAP.

Hi John Smith, and welcome to Geeks to Go! :D

Does the printer give you any error messages? This appears to be an old printer, and I wouldn't be surprised if the printer drum needs replacing.

The drum is what transfers the toner from the cartridge to the paper. Yours is rated for about 100,000 pages. Can be far less if your average page has more than 5% coverage. However, there will usually be a message on the printer that the drum needs replacing. There are no error lights or messages on the printer?

Have you tried connecting it via USB instead of a printer cable?
