Using the Printer

Post by eramm01 » Wed Oct 07, 2015 6:27 pm

I'm trying to use the printer usb port on my 4 year old NAS (Iomega Home Media cloud edition) for the first time and it won't print. The NAS is connected to a wireless network extender by the ethernet cable, the printer is a Canon MP280 and I am trying to print from a W-10 laptop on the wireless network. I have installed the latest MP280 driver on my laptop.
LenovoEMC Storage Manager shows the printer as online.
Windows on my laptop shows graphically in File Explorer the printer attached to the NAS
I can add the printer quite happily.
When I go to Devices and Printers in control panel, click on this printer and use the Canon software I can print a test page, it shows as 1 document in the queue briefly before it goes off.
It never arrives at the printer however and the 'documnets waiting' on LenovoEMC Storage Manager stays at 0.
Any ideas? :roll:
