My Ouija board is acting up and I cannot tell how you have your printer set up. Could you supply some details?

Network? Parallel port? IPP? USB? Unplugged? Still in the box?

In the meantime, delete your current definition and try reinstalling it. If that fails, post exactly which choices you selected to configure it.

Remember, my Ouija board is off-line tonight and I cannot divine any information unless you post it in this forum.
