I have a dell computer running Windows XP Pro and I have a Canon Multipass F80 printer connected. It has been working great for the past 1 1/2 years but it suddenly stopped working. I click print and the printer icon shows up in the tray....nothing happens. The printer properties shows it is printing....nothing happens. I'm sure it is something simple but I can't figure it out. Thanks in advance for any help.
