I bought this printer a year ago and only use it occasionally .

I can scan and print from it no problem but when I try to print e.g. a document from laptop nothing happens. I never had this problem before .
I am the only one who uses both laptop and printer .
I have removed and then reinstalled it a few times today but still nothing.
Any advice very gratefully received .

Williamina was born in 1895 in Edinburgh she and Hector McDonald were married there in 1924.
