Ok, so I formatted my dad's PC (it was chock full o' viruses 'n such)
I go download the drivers to the printer, run the installer.. it asks me to power up the printer and connect it to a USB port.. so I do this, and lo and behold, nothing happens. Eventually the installer tells me the printer is not responding..

I replaced the USB cable, no go.
I looked for a reset button the printer, there is none.
I unplugged the printer, tried again, rinsed and repeated about 4 times, and now here I am.. some help guys? I need to use this printer soon....

Edit:

Nvm.. figured it out on my own.

Sounds like you need to take it somewhere and get it checked out.Does the computer recognize that it is plugged in?
